FOAM, LOTION OR SPRAY TAN?

From dark tanning solutions to instant bronzers and moisture rich coconut body products, the pureTAN range has everything you need to get a naturally golden tan that lasts.

We hear from a lot of our customers that they can’t decide what tanning product they should use, or whether they should opt for foam, lotion or spray tan.

So here are a few notes on each option to help you decide which pureTAN product is right for you:

spray or lotion tan

  1. pureTAN Instant Tanning Foam

With two shades available (dark or light/medium) the pureTAN instant tanning foam was developed for busy people who demand a golden rich tan now!

The lightweight foam applies evenly and smoothly, and dries very quickly allowing you to quickly see any areas that may have been missed. It’s the perfect tan for beginners.

With the foam you have two options, wash after one hour for a subtle glow or leave it for longer to develop into a deeper, longer lasting golden colour. We encourage adding another layer of tan after 1hr if you’re really serious about achieving a deep tan.

The formula contains a moisturizer base which conditions your skin as you apply, as well as smell reduction technology so that you can wear with confidence.

And don’t forget to always apply using an application mitt to avoid discoloured hands!

 

  1. pureTAN Instant Tanning Lotion

The pureTAN Instant Tanning Lotion is our best selling product. It is a rich, creamy lotion that provides an even deeper tan than the foam, as well as added moisture for your skin. This is perfect for the summer months when you need to step up your tanning game!

The lotion takes a little more skill to apply, but remains a simple process. Gently massage into the skin to avoid streaks (using an application mitt of course!) and be careful not to rub against anything abrasive or come into contact with water until the tan has developed to the level that you’d like.

Don’t be scared by the initial dark colour of the lotion. It’s simply a dark ingredient that helps show you where you’ve applied the tan. Once you have a shower, the tan will look slightly lighter.

 

  1. pureTAN Spray Tan

Sometimes, it’s best to leave it to the professionals.

pureTAN professional salon solution is stocked in some of the nations best tanning salons and is made using premium and nourishing ingredients.

Spray tans are usually carried out in a salon, in which you are sprayed with a light mist until you achieve a colour that you’re satisfied with.

Professional spray tans guarantee no-streaks and no clumsy mishaps. You walk into a salon and leave 15 minutes later looking radiant.

The spray tan solution is fast drying and if maintained properly, will last longer than a self application.

There are 3 options with pureTAN spray tan solution: PureBronze Medium Golden Bronze for lighter skin tones, PureBronze Dark Bronze for olive skin tones and the latest innovation- PureBronze Rapid 1hr Tan for anyone in a rush. They’re perfect if you have a special occasion to attend, or if you don’t trust yourself applying the tan.

JETS x PURETAN

Great swimwear is our vice. We’re addicted! And lucky for us, we’ve become besties with one of Australia’s most loved brands, JETS.

jets swimwear

JETS Swimwear appears throughout our campaign on the smoking hot Natalie Roser, and yesterday we had the pleasure of partnering up with our dear friends again to put on a killer runway show to support the Sony Foundation at Wharf4Ward.

A sea of celebrities took over the Woolloomooloo Wharf to enjoy a James Bond themed afternoon of frivolity with guest performances by Delta Goodrem, Nathaniel and the Hoodoo Guru’s while dining at the finest restaurants Sydney has to offer.

We rubbed shoulders with the likes of Danni Minogue, Natalie Bassingthwaite, Terry Biviano, Kerry-Anne, Osher Gunsberg and so many more.

The highlight of the day was definitely when our sexy Bond girls pulled up to the wharf on a luxury super yacht with Nathaniel doing his thing, before they stormed the wharf turning it into a JETS Swimwear runway show.

The models looked amazing in their super bronzed pureTAN spray tans from Tan Temple in Bondi and we overheard a number of guests commenting on the delicious coconut smell as the models walked by. Secret weapon- our Coconut Body Creme.

And the swimwear.. no words! We can’t wait to get our hands on those white one pieces!

Sony hosted such an incredible afternoon for a heartfelt cause and we are truly grateful for being able to be a part of such a fantastic and inspiring event with some of the most influential people and brands in Australia.

Thank you to Tan Temple who bronzed all of the models on our behalf. To book in your next spray tan visit http://tantemple.com.au

And the biggest thank you to JETS for the opportunity to be a part of something so special.

Wish you were there.

SPRAY TANNING TIPS

You can thank us later!

We’ve put together a list of the best tips you’ll ever receive for the perfect spray tan. These useful tips will not only guarantee you will leave the salon looking like a bronzed goddess, but will ensure you maintain the flawless glow for up to ten days.

spray tanning tips

24-48 hours before spray tan
Get your bikini wax, any other body waxing and shaving out of the way. This will allow the pores to close back up before you get your tan.

Get your mani/pedi before the session otherwise the acetone the nail salons use will remove the tan on your hands leaving them a different colour to your body.

Prepare your skin by exfoliating thoroughly and moisturize!!

The day of
Shower and exfoliate your body again to remove any dead skin as well as any residual moisturizer, deodorant or perfumes. Using an exfoliating mitt and a body scrub, concentrate on your hands, knees and elbows. We recommend our coconut body scrub and pro mitt for exfoliating.

Do not wear any makeup, body lotions, perfumes or deodorants as they react with the tanning properties and could make your skin turn green.

Remove all jewellery

Wear loose dark clothing and a pare of flip slops

Once you’ve been sprayed
Wait a few minutes before getting dressed to allow the tan to absorb into the skin. This will help avoid any bad markings.

Avoid water and sweat for up to 8 hours. This means no shower, no gym, no housework (dream!) and staying out of the rain.

Refrain from using any deodorants or perfumes until your tan has fully developed and you’ve showered. This is the difficult part, as your skin begins to smell, but the wait is worth it!

After it has developed
Have a shower and rinse yourself thoroughly until the water runs clear. Avoid using any harsh soaps as they could strip your tan.

Apply a super nourishing moisturizer such as our coconut body crème which not only smells like coconut heaven, it contains organic coconut oil which is intensely moisturizing and quickly absorbs into the skin. The more you moisturize, the longer the tan will last.

Maintaining the glow
Continue to moisturize your skin after every shower. This is crucial. We recommend maintinaing the tan with our Gradual Tanning Moisturiser which contains organic coconut oil and SPF 15. It’s the perfect replacement for your regular moisturizer and makes your tan last much longer with its subtle daily tanner.

Avoid long hot baths and swimming in chlorinated water.

Pat yourself dry after showers rather than rubbing with a towel.

Shave the least amount of times possible as each shave removes a layer of tan.

After 7 days, gently exfoliate your skin each day so that your tan begins to fade evenly. We’ve all seen those people who look patchy and I’m sure you want to avoid that!

TAN APPLICATION TIPS

The best tips for tanning application from our very own expert, Danielle Newton.

tanning tips

Whether you’re a regular tanner or just about to apply your inaugural golden coat, we all suffer the same nerves about the risk of a tan-gone-wrong.

At pureTAN we take our tanning seriously and the way we see it, the perfect application really is a form of art.

Our resident guru, founder Danielle Newton, has come to the rescue. She knows all the tricks of the trade and has created 3 simple steps for you to follow to achieve a flawless even tan.

If you follow Danielle’s advice, you’ll be applying tan like a pro instantly.

STEP 1: Exfoliate

For the ideal application to ensure a flawless finish “get rid of excess dead skin on the body by using our NEW Pure Moisture Coconut Body Scrub” says Danielle Newton Owner / Co-Founder of PureTAN.

“By using this delicious cream scrub you guarantee that the skin you’re turning brown won’t slough off and disappear for at least a few days. Our Pure Moisture products are not just scented with coconut fragrance, they are based on 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil which offers the skin so many protective and healing benefits.

STEP 2: Apply Tan

For an even application the PureTAN Lotion in Light or Dark contains a colour so you can see where you have applied it and make sure there are no patches left without your tan. Use the PureTAN Pro Application

Mitt for an even streak free finish. For the final touch that will give your skin that gorgeous sun-kissed glow, the PureTAN PureBronze Lotion contains a hint of shimmer leaving your skin with a honeyed glow

STEP 3: Moisturise

Once your tan has developed ensure your skin is regularly and deeply moisturized. “Our NEW Pure Moisture Extra Virgin Coconut oil which is deeply nourishing and healing. It’s natures miracle ingredient for

hydration ! “ says Newton. “Put a teaspoon size of the coconut oil in the palm of your hand and warm it until it liquefies. Indulge yourself in a gentle massage, rubbing it into your skin. The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is that is the small molecular structure of coconut oil allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture and prolonging your tan.”

Here is a fantastic video that we’ve personally made for you so that you can view the application process from start to finish:
