Tanning at home is easy with our range of sunless tanners.

Choose from our assortment of golden formulations.

There is still a day between you and your beau enjoying the slushy sentiments of Valentine’s Day, which means there’s plenty of time for a last-minute spray tan. It only takes 15 minutes and the gorgeously golden effects last for up to a week. But if you can’t manage a trip to your nearest Sienna X accredited salon you can always fake tan at home using one of our award-winning sunless tanning formulations.

Confused by the selection? Here’s our step by step guide on which tanning product will suit you and your amorous appetite:

Dark Glowing Self Tan is perfect for creating a deep burnished hue on the skin that lasts for days and fades off gradually and evenly. Not for the fainthearted, this rich colour is the one to opt for if you’ve fake tanned before and want to achieve a distinct tonal change from the natural colour of your skin. Simply apply evenly over the entire body using a tanning mitt, allow 6-8 hours for the colour to develop and wash off in the shower.

At the other end of the spectrum is Gradual Glowing Self Tan – a tanning lotion that adds a gentle, sun-kissed colour to the skin and highlights the natural contours of the face and body. This luxurious cream can be applied to the skin in the same way as a moisturiser and doesn’t need to be washed off. Your colour will develop slowly over the course of the day and if the end results aren’t dark enough you can apply more product to build up a layered tan.

If it gets to Valentine’s Day and you haven’t found the spare time to use a long-lasting sunless tan you can achieve a beautiful short-term tan using Instant Bronzing Gel. This clever formulation creates a stunning caramel colour on the skin in seconds. Apply over the skin just before heading out for your Valentine’s night and watch the colour appear. Simply wash the product off in the shower when the night is over to reveal your natural colour beneath.
