Beauty Lab Peptide Tanning Lotion

I may have mentioned before that I don’t use fake tan.

I am 100% milk bottle white and it’s all natural baby!

That’s not to say I haven’t ever dabbled in the world of tanning from a bottle, indeed most of my teen years were spent sporting various shades of bronze.

These days I tend to prefer my natural skin shade- transparent, but my sister is a big fan of fake tans and that’s why I handed over to her to try out Beauty Lab’s Peptide Tanning Lotion (£20)

 The lotion is deeply hydrating and formulated with a tan inducing peptide to provide a golden, sun kissed and streak free tan.

Blended with rainforest cocoa, rose petal and jasmine flower it has a hint of guava and melon that offers a gorgeous aroma.

But how did it fare? Over to Megan

 (who by the way, is the talent behind my I Am Fabulicious Logo don't you know!)

The lotion is really creamy and smooth, goes on easily, is easy to rub in and doesn't dry up before you've finished spreading it!
It has a lovely fresh smell to it which is far better than the more common smell associated with fake tans, namely biscuits!

Once applied to the skin it doesn’t feel tacky and it dries quickly enough that you could get dressed in about ten minutes if you were to apply in the morning.


A huge plus is that it doesn't stain your clothes or your bed sheets what so ever. I’d say the best way to use it is to put it on before going to bed or on a night in when you don’t plan on going out as I noticed that tight clothes can make it go a bit streaky as it rubs it off a bit whilst developing.

Once developed it offers a nice colour but it can look a little bit orangey if applied in a rush


 (notice my hands, whoops!)

In a nutshell, it smells lovely, feels like a moisturiser, lets skin breathe and develops into a nice, golden colour. Like most fake tans it does stain your hands and area’s which you perhaps haven’t exfoliated as well as you could have, so make sure you use gloves when applying.



  1. Hmmm, no giveaways on this one? After a v. bad experience with fake tan, completely accidental when I was 16, I haven't really gone there again. My daughter feels that she needs a tan for the Prom..... White Dress and all..... Do you think this would be a good starter?

  2. I like the subtle colour its given your sisters skin - its a lovely glow. I just can't justify anymore tans at present, I already have 4 in my bedroom LOL! Great review though x

  3. Looks good, I'm a milk bottle too

  4. That's actually looks natural, compared to some other selftanners...

  5. Hello friends,

    Peptide tanning is a topicaly applied product which incorporates a peptide that is capable of stimulating higher concentration of melanin. Thanks a lot.....
