SUN DROPS gradual tanning facial serum

Some call it gradual tan, we call it a slow glow.



SUN DROPS gradual tanning facial serum

Whether you want to top up an existing tan, create a subtle sun-kissed glow or accentuate parts of your face where the sun would naturally hit – think cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and around your hairline – this customisable bronzing serum will become your secret weapon. Alongside the natural plant allo-melanin that mimics your skin’s own and creates that warm golden effect, our facial tanning drops are topped up with coconut water and aloe vera juice to ensure skin stays dewy in its own right. With a sweet passion fruit scent, they're summer in a bottle, packed with patented technology to build a natural-looking tan all year round

  • Benefits

    Self-tans have a reputation for drying out the skin but not this easy to use and award-winning serum. With natural caramel extracts that you can use as a guide to see where you’ve applied the drops (no streaks here, thank you), your skin will become saturated with moisture while the tint develops. Using plant allo-melanin that’s lightweight and suitable for all skin types, it means even those who are sensitive to traditional tanning agents can up the ante on their glow. Coconut water and aloe vera keep skin soft, spongy and hydrated – which also means your complexion will look luminous as well as sun-kissed.

  • Full Ingredients

    This product is freshly made in the UK using the most nutritious, sustainably sourced ingredients from across the globe.

    Our heroes:
    Plant Allo-melanin

    Our patented plant allo-melanin works by mimicking the colour of your skin’s own melanin and slowing down the production of DHA. Often that orange ‘fake’ colour is because the DHA has worked too quickly and oxidised on the skin, but our plant allo-melanin slows it down, so you get an even, natural-looking tan. 

    Passion Fruit extract
    Applause all round for this antioxidant-rich fruit that’s full of vitamin C and has a knack for brightening the skin from within. It’s also what’s behind the mouth-watering sorbet-like scent.

    Coconut water
    Every athlete's go-to because of the high level of electrolytes and amino acids that refresh and replenish hydration levels pronto, it does the same for skin. In doing so it also strengthens the reticular skin layer which is thicker and lower and is responsible for collagen and elasticity. Bouncy, bronzed skin here we come.

How to use

Don’t apply this directly to skin, mix it with your moisturiser in the morning or evening and let your tan develop. It takes a subtle approach so if you use it first thing, you won’t look like a different person by bedtime. For a subtle change, 2-3 drops is enough, or for a more obvious ‘just been on holiday’ vibe, add 4-6. Always wash your hands after applying (you have been warned!) and for best results, mix your drops with your moisturiser rather than another serum or oil as this will dilute the end result. If you use Fruit Peel or Glow Berry in your routine, we recommend using Sun Drops on the evenings you don’t use Fruit Peel and Glow Berry in the morning for maximum radiance! 

I really like this product. I mix a few drops with my Skin Feast or Skin Dream moisturiser and within a few hours my face is given a sun-kissed glow. It's great as I feel I don't need to wear much makeup once I have used these drops. Really simple and effective.
