wotnot® natural self-tanning lotion is a velvety soft blend of organic ingredients that moisturise and nourish the skin, while developing a natural, streak-free, golden tan. Australian certified organic Kakadu plum and camellia oil provide antioxidants and nutrients to help slow the ageing process while certified organic aloe vera softens, moisturises and soothes, leaving a beautiful even tan that fades naturally.
The DHA used in our lotion is COSMOS approved and derived from sugar cane. This DHA is designed to react to the proteins and amino acids in the outer layers of the skin. Conventional tanning products use synthetic based DHA and often include chemical absorbers designed to penetrate the skin’s surface to develop a faster tan. These conventional tans can also contain ingredients like dyes, artificial fragrances, parabens, alcohol and petrochemicals. The side effect of the absorbers used to develop synthetic based tanning lotions, is that all the products chemicals are more easily absorbed into the blood stream.

I love that I'm not putting chemicals on my skin! The tan is quite heavy, a thick cream, but it tans nicely over night. You can top up the next night for a darker colour.
I must admit, I'm not a big fake tanner, I have tried it in the past and never been too happy with the results and find some of the elements too bothersome. So when I was sent the Wotnot gradual tanning lotion I was sceptical. I waited for the craziness of the weekend to be done and I was in my PJs with a glass of white, watching the block and whipped out the bottle to give it a go (of course I had prepped the 'bod' with the Wotnot exfoliating mit beforehand). To my surprise the lotion was a gorgeous consistency, not like runny, brown syrup at all. It was just like using moisturiser, it felt lush on my skin and was easy to apply a consistent layer. I had my first go at the lotion 2 hours before bed but I was still a little sticky by the time I climbed into the sheets for 40 winks which wasn't a great feeling. As I dragged my butt out of bed on an early Monday morning before work there was a spring in my step when I saw my golden sun-kissed skin! Don't underestimate the name 'gradual tan', this lotion gives you a really nice level of tint after the first use without those dark marks on your knees and heals and I love this. I would happily apply the lotion once a week to give me that sun-safe glow for the week without look fake at all.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tanning lotion. So Easy to apply (I used the applicator mitt too) and soaks in really quickly. Not a lie about it not transferring onto bed sheets or clothes and the tan is really beautiful and natural. I had multiple comments asking where I had been on holidays! The only thing I would suggest is making sure you exfoliate well a few days in a row because it sticks and doesnt look so natural on dry patches of skin around my ankles, elbows and knees. I wasn't a fan of the smell but it wasn't so bad that my husband commented like he would have normally!
I won't be using any other fake tan from here on in!
Easy to apply and lasts for days
Also suitable for my face which is novel as most other products are face or body.
Does not streak either and the instructions are really clear.

How to apply our tan for perfect results.
16-24 hours prior to treatment prepare your skin. Shave/ Wax and Scrub your skin!
My perfect scrub ingredients are found in the kitchen cupboard. Use 1 cup of raw sugar or fine Himalayan salt scrub to 1/2 cup of coconut oil or almond oil and dry scrub in circular motion. Once done, rinse your skin and rub your skin with a towel. Make sure you shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to self-tanning.
APPLY & DEVELOP:
Apply a thin layer of moisturiser to your eyebrows, lips, elbows, knees and tops of feet ten minutes prior to self-tanning.
Put on your Sunless Mitt and prepare to get glowing!
Apply 50 cent piece size worth of Wotnot Self Tanning lotion to every area of the body in circular motion in this sequence. As with most self tan lotions, avoid applying too much lotion as this is the main reason for the results having an orange tint.
- Ankles to knees, importantly bending at the knees and use sparingly in the ankles
- Thighs to hips including buttocks area (use a 50 cent piece quantity on each leg).
- Hips to chest (go over chest area twice keeping 45 minutes between application for better definition).
- Arms, importantly bending at the elbows.
- Hands only consist of a quick smooth over whilst your knuckles are in a claw position.
- Back area, it's best to ask a friend to apply your Wotnot Tanning lotion in a circular motion starting from the hips up.
- Tanning the face and neck area. I find it is best to purchase yourself some new foundation sponges and allow a 50 cent piece of self-tan onto the sponge and start dabbing and pushing the product into the skin until you have perfectly coated the selected areas. Then grab a Q-Tip and apply some water onto the cotton and roll it over your eyebrows and use a separate Q-Tip for over your lips. Apply one coat every 5 days to keep your facial skin radiantly glowing.
If you need to double coat your self-tanner, it’s best to leave a day in between applications to allow the first application to finish working on your skin. Keep your Wotnot Self Tanning lotion on for 8 hours before rinsing off, patting the skin dry and head out for the day.
EXTEND: To maintain glowing skin it's essential to keep your skin hydrated on the outside and inside. Drink plenty of water and use a daily moisturiser morning and night (Wotnot baby lotion is perfect and so gentle J). Use Wotnot Facial Wipes to clean the skin as it will not affect the tan as it's alcohol and toxin-free! Your tan will gradually lighten whilst your skin self-exfoliates.
