I get a wonderful tan really easily because of my golden skin tone but my body forgot to give my face the memo! My face always looks sallow in comparison and needs some extra help so I bought Lavera (Organic) Self Tanning Cream for the Face £10.90 for 50ml.


Lavera self tan for face

The tan contains macadamia oil to moisturise which means you get an even streak free tan which lasts. This creates a subtle tan which can be increased with more light applications leaving each one to dry in between. I’m choosing to show you the results on the underside of my forearms (still rather pale), rather than my face which had too many shadows. The natural daylight has been virtually non-existed the last three days!


This is after one application and as you can see the effect is quite subtle but there are no streaks and it’s a very natural colour.


  • Moisturising
  • Natural Tone
  • Organic
  • Vegan


  • Quite expensive for the amount you get
  • Tanning effect is almost too subtle

    Does it still have that awful tanning lotion smell? I’ve tried some organic types before but they still smell yack!

      Nope, you won’t be walking around smelling of biscuits. My bloke has a super sensitive sense of smell and he didn’t notice.

        I’d quite like to smell of biscuits! I don’t know how I’d describe the smell, I just know I don’t like it and it lingers forever!

        Haha me too but with a lot of tans it gets sickly quickly and makes it obvious your wearing fake tan but this one is much more subtle.
