Boots Soltan Beautiful Bronze Self Tan Gel - Review

I have tried some tanning moisturisers, I have tried a tanning mousse so next up was a Self- Tan Gel...

This is from Boots Soltan Range - Beautiful Bronze which promises to give a natural even colour,  tinted colour for instantly luminous skin, dries instantly and fades evenly.

I had planned to apply this in a leisurely manner but things don't always go to plan. I exfoliated first using Skin Wisdom Day Spa Wash n Scrub and then applied a bit of moisturiser in those places where tan can stick...

Just as I was about to apply the gel my son yells from the bathroom he wants to get out so I had to apply the fake tan in a hurried manner! 

This is where it impressed it is a gel it is not messy to apply, it is tinted so you can see exactly where you have applied it. It rubs in well, smells a bit like vanilla and leaves a slight shimmer to the skin. It felt like it had dried quite quickly but I would be cautious and not wear anything that you wouldn't want to get stained.

You can see the tiny gold flecks of shimmer in this photo 

Friday evening I left the house with the tan working its magic and next morning I woke with the shimmer gone and in its place a really beautiful golden glow! For me, this would be the equivalent of one week sitting in the sun in Ibiza.

I am so pleased with the results, I used to think that I didn't have time for fake tans but this proved that it literally takes just a couple of minutes.

Beautiful Bronze Self Tan Gel costs £6.99 for 150mls but is currently on offer priced £4.66!


  1. This is one of the brands I've never tried before as a tanning solution, I've always been impressed with their suntan cream so it would make sense to try this too!

    I love a product that allows you to see where you have applied it on the body, it sounds like a winner!

  2. I can vouch for this - I love it, easily the best I've used in the cheaper price range.

  3. best self tanning gel ever

  4. can i expose to sun in the beach after puting soltan self tan gel

    1. Yes you can, but you must apply a sunscreen for protection.
