Melvita ProSun Gradual Self-Tanning Moisturizing Gel-Cream - Review

I recently spent a morning with the very friendly Melvita team learning about their new launches and having a wonderful chat about the brand and its wide range of products, Melvita being a brand which I have had no previous experience of. Melvita is a French organic beauty brand whose founder was a biologist and bee-keeper. Founded in 1983, Melvita began developing their own natural and organic beauty products designed for people to use every day without the need for harsh chemicals. They were also one of the first to gain the ECOCERT certificate for organic products in 2002.

One of the products unveiled at the launch was a natural and organic gradual self tanning moisturising gel-cream. The Melvita ProSun Gradial Self-Tanning Moisturizing Gel-Cream for face and body

Claims - 

Harnesses the natural tanning potential of an ingredient called Erythrulose, a natural bronzing agent derived from sugar cane which results in a natural looking, even and streak free safe tan.

The idea being that if the tan is slower to mature, it will also remain longer on the skin.

The combination of Safflower, Buriti and Coconut oils and beeswax moisturise and soften the skin naturally whilst Vanilla Flower and Sweet Orange water ensures the product has a pleasant scent.

My thoughts -

I like the scent of Vanilla which this is, it is quite strong on application which I don't mind personally. I find it quite appealing. The scent fades as the day goes on. The product has a good texture which absorbs well and relatively fast and is non greasy.

I have been really impressed with the results and performance of this tanning product. I applied it one afternoon and next morning it had developed into a gorgeous, warm, light golden colour. I looked like I had been away for a few days and it was exactly how my skin would have tanned if I had been in the sun.

It looked extremely natural and was completely even with no streaks. I would say that the application is easy and fool proof. I applied it again the next day and the results were a slightly darker shade.  True to its word, it fades slowly and evenly.

I like it a lot.

Melvita ProSun Gradial Self-Tanning Moisturizing Gel-Cream costs £20 for 150ml.
