Review: Tan Organic Silk Oil

Silk Oil by Tan Organic is the WORLD’S FIRST professional self-tanning spray oil unlike any other professional tanning treatment on the market!

It’s a premium luxurious moisturising treatment that leaves skin velvety soft and hydrated with a sun kissed glow.

Not only is it the world’s first moisturising, hydrating, professional self-tanning spray oil, Silk Oil is also completely colourless AND odourless meaning you can get sprayed at any time of the day without having to worry about wearing loose, dark clothing.

That’s right, you can wear WHITE clothes immediately after being sprayed with Silk Oil. Imagine that… I know it’s really hard to comprehend that you can wear white clothes after having a spray tan without your clothes getting destroyed but it’s actually real. ALL our prayers have been answered.

To help you understand the concept a little better, DHA (the ingredient that develops tan) actually looks like salt in its pure form meaning that no self tanning product needs to have a colour AT ALL…

However, the colour in most tans acts as a colour guide and actually benefits us in that sense i.e. it’s easy to see where we have applied tan/missed a spot because the ‘tan lines’ are evident. When you’re using a colourless tan though, these ‘tan lines’ are invisible meaning you’d really have to be confident in your tan application skills to get an even colour without streaking.

For this reason, the retail version of Silk Oil only comes in 8% and the professional Silk Oil for salon use comes in 10%.

For girls who like REALLY dark tans, you’re probably used to getting sprayed with either a 12%, 14% or in some cases 16% tan so I don’t want people to be under the illusion that Silk Oil will give you that really deep tan. It’s not about that. Silk Oil is designed to be a hybrid between skincare and self-tanning.

Because Silk Oil is colourless, there is no instant colour gratification when you get sprayed either. In fact, you won’t look like you have been sprayed at all. Your skin will just be silky smooth, hydrated, nourished and will be glowing from the oil. The tan will develop after 8 hours so don’t worry if you feel as though it’s not coming up as quick as you had hoped. We are just so used to leaving salons instantly dark after having a spray tan.

I really liked the colour it turned out on me – not as dark as I’m used to, but it didn’t matter. I think at this point I’d even sacrifice the darker tans because of how good my skin felt and because not one piece of my clothing or my bedsheets were destroyed.

I also love that its odourless with no fake tan smell, just a natural fresh citrus scent.

Showering is totally optional the next day as well. I know that sounds weird and I don’t mean it to sound like your personal hygiene is optional but I just mean that because it’s colourless, the water will run clear.

You know when you get sprayed and you have a shower the next morning and you feel like your whole tan is being washed down the drain, there is none of that with Silk Oil. Another mind boggler for you – the water actually runs clear in the shower because it’s a colourless tan… The colour that runs from your body with other tans is just food colouring…. So weird isn’t it?

Because Silk Oil comes in only 10%, you will be given a 25ml top-up treatment that you can apply the next day for a deeper tan, or after a few days to prolong your tan.

For professionals who are thinking of stocking Silk Oil, with every litre bottle of Silk Oil you buy you will get x20 25ml bottles absolutely free to give to your customers! The 25ml bottles retail as top up treatments in salons for €7.99 each so that’s €160 worth of FREE product!

As I mentioned, the 10% self tanning Silk Oil will only be available for professionals to purchase but if you are interested in purchasing the 8% self tanning oil that you can apply at home, it’s priced at €24.99 and you can shop here: http://bit.ly/1SIdPeC
