Full Review of Australian Gold Dark Tanning Accelerator Lotion
I love summer; it’s my favorite season, the sun, the beach and a nice healthy glow.
I am fairly light skinned and I always wear a sunscreen when I am outdoors. Since I especially spend a lot of time outdoors in the summertime I am always careful to apply sunscreen so I don’t burn. I like to use a tanning bed a few times a year but in the summer, I really like to have a nice base tan.
The use of tanning beds can be expensive and I don’t like to spend a huge amount of money on lotions and you really need to use one that’s specifically for tanning bed use. Lotions used for tanning beds are specifically formulated for tanning beds regular lotions don’t do the job and they can wreck the bed.
Australian Gold has been around for more than twenty five years but I only discovered Australian Gold Dark Tanning Accelerator Lotion six years ago at a tanning salon. It was a bit expensive but the look and the name appealed to me. This is a great lotion. It comes in its signature dark brown bottle and yellow/orange cap and the little koala on the front. I have used this lotion for years and it never disappoints.
I prefer using an accelerator instead of a bronzer because they give you a natural, deeper tan and not an added color and increase melanin formation to accelerate the tanning process. Bronzers do have moisturizers just like the accelerators but they also contain DHA which turns your skin orange and that includes the palms of your hands. Australian Gold Dark Tanning Accelerator gives you a dark, golden tan no orange color at all. Best of all, it only takes me about two sessions to get a really nice dark tan.
This lotion goes on really nice and it’s gentle on sensitive skin as well. It’s a medium texture but there is not greasy feeling to this lotion at all. It also absorbs fairly quickly. It also contains an exclusive Biosine Complex formula which promotes extreme moisturizing.
I Love, love the unique scent. You have your coconut scented lotions which I also really love this one. Although they call the scent Cocoa Dreams I think it smells more like an orange cream sherbet, but better. It’s hard to really describe the scent accurately but it smells delicious!
This lotion can be used in conjunction with your sunscreen when outdoors, I always do. Just be sure not to use it on its own for a long period of time outdoors it does not contain any SPF and you will burn. It works really well when used with their other sun protection products.
I love this lotion and I highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for a great tan and wants healthy looking skin. I like that this lotion is not tested on animals and it really, really hydrates your skin.
Australian Gold Dark Tanning Accelerator Lotion will never let you down. If you’re looking for great sunscreens that give you a really awesome tan and smooth looking skin, try their other products. They have a wide range of sunscreen products in lotions and oils and they also come in spray bottles which are really great!
