Piz Buin After Sun Tan Intensifier Lotion Review

I adore the sun and am the first person to want to intensify that tan so it is deeper and lasts longer. Like me though, how many times have you bought a tan extender product to find your tan goes orangey and leaves fake tan type marks on your hands? I hate the smell of fake tan too so this is really off putting for me. Well I think I have the answer…

Piz Buin have released an aftersun with an added ingredient to deepen your tan with no fake tan. Tanimel claims to help maintain the melanin production in your skin and increase the production of melanin by up to 133%. Tanimel is derived from the restharrow plant proving that you won’t get any fake tan smell from this lotion!

This is a light lotion but isn’t as runny in consistency as some others I have used. This is a good thing for me as it still sinks into the skin pretty much straight away. The lotion also contains vitamin E giving your skin a much needed moisture boost having been subjected to the sun’s rays. It is also refreshing if you are slightly burnt, in fact, I put it in the fridge to cool my skin down that bit quicker. I find this really does deepen my tan, it seems to prevent my skin from burning as quickly (when combined with a good SPF product) and gives my light tan a boost. I try and use this for the duration of sunny weather or holidays but I’m not 100% convinced that it lengthens the life of my tan, it seems to fade at the same speed as normal.

This product usually retails at £11.49 but is currently on offer in Superdrug for £5.24. I’ve also bought this for £5 in B&M before now so it is worth shopping around to find it. Perfect to rehydrate your skin and deepen your tan in our current sunny English weather without breaking the bank!

This item was paid for.

    I use this at night, after a shower, to smoothe and relax the skin from the sun, when I sunbathe. I like it, but there there’s another 1 I prefer: Posthelios (by La Roche – Posay).

    Wow this post was so interesting, I’ve tried a Soltan tan extender but had no idea there was one that doesn’t actually have fake tan in. Unfortunately it’s been so windy here that I’ve been too cold sitting in the sun, but this would be perfect to take on holiday x

      I love Lancaster’s version but this is such a cheap alternative and no orange patches. Winner! x

    […] This is a fairly small sample and rather expensive when buying full size. It contains some great ingredients though such as aloe vera and avocado making it gentle enough even for sensitive skin. The added tan accelerator is a great addition too and will compliment the Piz Buin Aftersun I reviewed HERE […]

    ve packed the ubiquitous wardrobe of summer brights and
    your fake tan is booked in for the afternoon. Waxing is also a good ways to avoid darkening in this
    delicate area. Tan Overnight’s unique built-in bronzer is especially suitable for fair-skinned people.
    This will allow the lotion enough time to dry out and you
    can have the best of effort. These kinds of beds and
    spray tans unquestionably are produced so they are able to simply be
    utilized indoors just like any other Booths as well as you could possibly get tan just by
    relaxing within your privacy. Remember to choose an scent- free lotion that complements
    your skin type. It might seem strange but
    the kind of fluid you use can seriously affect the results.
    You can use your full face by changing your hairstyle and its color.
    This article details some of the ways you can achieve a beautiful tan. The more sensitive
    your skin, the worst your results will be if you shave.

    They might be a good fashion declaration at home however, not
    in Spain. Since 10% of California’s budget goes to pay for its prison system,
    the idea is that AB 109 will free up billions in the state budget.
    There is no reason to be self-conscious about your body in front of the woman, or man, who is tanning you.

    You can use a hair dryer on the surface if you can’t wait until the next day.

    This is made of vitreous china, a ceramic fired at high temperature to form a non-porous body coated.
    So wiping water into the sink and cleaning up is quicker.
