Puretan Dark Instant Foaming Kit

Puretan or PureBronze is a unique range of salon quality instant tanning products now available in Myer stores nationwide.

In need of a new self tanner I was please to find they offer a “Tanning Kit” for their spray, foam and lotion solutions which also includes an exfoliating glove and a tanning mitt – a great starter kit for those wanting to try the brand.

I purchase the foam as I always have found it easier to apply and less streaky in other brands.

Prior to my tan application I used the exfoliating glove which worked well and for added polish I used my Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Scrub.

To apply I used the tanning mitt, which has a velvet like texture – very nice to use and is re-usable and can be thrown in the wash for easy cleaning. Tanning mitts are fantastic to apply self tan; they are so much easier and convenient than rubber gloves and provide a nice even finish to your tan.

 I must admit I was a little concerned when I first pumped PureBronze. I’m used to self tanners with a slight green undertone and PureBronze was giving me a reddish orangey vibe. Once applied, the colour is natural with a hint of bronze and I didn’t find it to look orange (thank goodness). I was very impressed with the colour and it survived a good 4 days (without excessive moisturising) before it started to fade. I introduced my sister to PureBronze at a weekend wedding and since then she has loved it enough to borrow it on 2 more occasions.

The unique thing about PureTan is that most of their products (excluding the spray) can be washed off after one hour, so it’s perfect for those who need to tan-and-go.

I purchased the Dark Instant Foaming Kit for $44.95 from Myer, however visit PureTan for further product pricing and stockist information.
