Bali Body Self Tan Remover Review

My most loved tanning brand, Bali Body, have just launched a Self Tan Remover. They kindly sent me a bottle to try, so keep reading to hear my thoughts! 

Packaging & Details 

If you've been here before, you'll know I love Bali Body's packaging. It's so minimal and chic, and the Self Tan Remover is no different. A matte white tube with the peachy-toned branding of their Self Tan range, it fits in perfectly on my tanning shelf! 

For £18.95, you get 200ml of product. As with all their products, it is vegan and cruelty free. The team also kindly gifted me their Exfoliating Mitt, which retails at £12.95. More on this later in the review! 

Key Ingredients 

I love that Bali Body's tanning products focus as much on skincare as the results, and their Self Tan Remover is no different...
  • Cucumber Extract is a superfood for skin that nourishes and moisturises and is great for sensitive skin  
  • Rose Extract has anti-inflammatory properties which means it's a dream for calming the skin and reducing redness 
  • Jojoba Seed Oil contains many vitamins and antioxidants, great for hydrating and replenishing the skin 
  • Aloe Vera is deeply hydrating and a skincare favourite of many! 
  • Glycerin helps to prevent skin from drying out, giving you that youthful glow! 

Application

The self tan remover is so easy to apply - it is a foam that you can pump either in to your hand, or straight on to your skin. You then need to use your hands to rub the product in to the skin, ensuring that it is applied thoroughly, especially to areas where you have a lot of product build up! 

Leave it on the skin for at least 5 minutes before jumping in the shower and washing off with warm water and your exfoliating mitt! 

Top tip: You can use this mitt to help gently remove self tan, but you can also use it with warm water and soap to exfoliate prior to tanning. It's already become a staple in my tanning routine! 

Results 

The self tan remover promises to remove any unwanted self tan or product build up, and I can confirm it does just that! When I was first applying the remover, I won't lie, I wasn't convinced - it doesn't tingle or smell like it would remove something (I was thinking it would have nail polish remover vibes!) and I was fully expecting to rinse and exfoliate and still see tan left behind. But I was wrong! I was instead left with a blank canvas and silky smooth skin! 

A little before and after on my forearms, this was 3 day old tan using Bali Body's Self Tanning Mousse:

Final Thoughts 

So this was my first time trying out any sort of self tan remover, and I have to say I am super impressed. This is definitely the perfect solution when you want a fresh layer of tan that looks flawless! If you are a self tan regular, this is the product you need to give you that blank canvas for the ideal tan application! 

All of Bali Body's products smell fab, and this was no exception. I thought it was going to smell quite chemical-y, but it smells so nice and fresh! 

The self tan remover is so soft and gentle on the skin and where I find my fake tan is most stubborn on my wrists and ankles, the self tan remover removed any build up without me having to scrub the skin, which makes it a 10/10 in my eyes!

The 9 Things You Must Do on a Weekend in Budapest

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I spent a long weekend in Budapest in February, and I'm finally getting around to writing about it!

We had more of a slow travel experience in Budapest. After a hectic and stressful January, we both were in need of a few days of relaxation, beer, good food and a little exploring! We still managed to squeeze in quite a lot, so I thought I would do a quick post on my top things to do in Budapest for a first timer!
