TanOrganic & Oil Organic - Review

Next up in my Christmas guides I have TanOrganic, the world's first and only eco-certified self-tanning brand.

I'm not usually a big fake tan fan. I find that most of them are streaky, smelly, leave you looking orange and stain anything you touch. With the festive season starting there will be plenty of Christmas parties and work dos and no one wants to look pale! 

Firstly, how gorgeous does it look!? A glass bottle with a cork-style lid, so much fancier than your fake tans on the high street. It really screams that it is organic. 

One of my favourite things was that you do not need to apply it with a glove - just rub it on with your hands after showering then use a baby wipe to wipe your hands afterwards. The oil doesn't pour on quickly so you don't have to worry about applying too much by accident. It is clear so you need to make sure that you rub it all in evenly for the best coverage. It seemed to dry quickly and over a matter of hours I could see it getting to work. It looks completely natural and my thoughts on false tans have changed! It smells absolutely beautiful - it reminds me of being on holiday. 

Apologies for the dodgy pic - best I could do with it being a selfie! You can really see the difference between my arm and my chest and the line along my shoulder for comparison.

The oil absorbs quite quickly and it nourishes your skin with the hydration needed for both the dry and humid months. It contains a blend of Aloe Vera and plant oils (Borage seed oil, Argan oil and orange peel oil) so it gives off a rather sweet citrus smell, the complete opposite to other tanning brands. The oil protects your skin with antioxidants and the Aloe Vera works to reduce water loss from the outer layer of your skin, leaving it firm.

The blend contains no artificial colours, fragrances, parabens or preservatives. 

In addition to TanOrganic, I've also been trying out Oil Organic. 

Oil Organic is a multipurpose dry oil made from eight essential plant oils. Oil Organic works as a moisturiser and it is great for prepping your body prior to applying TanOrganic. It is also suitable for use on hair and nails, leaving them lustrous and strong but I've been focusing it on my stretch marks.

After having two children, my body is covered in stretch marks and I'm willing to try anything once. The scent of the oil is divine - it smells like a freshly peeled orange. I've repeated this constantly on my blog but I hate hate hate beauty and cosmetic products that just reek of chemicals.

Similarly to the TanOrganic, the opening ensures that you get a small amount onto the palm of your hand so you are not wasting it or covered in it accidentally. It doesn't feel greasy on my skin and dries quite quickly. I can definitely see a slight change in the definition of my stretch marks so I will continue to use it as it seems to be working well! 

Both TanOrganic and Oil Organic retails at £24.99 and you can purchase them at  Holland & Barrett, Ocado,,,,,,, and the TanOrganic website.
