Don't judge me, but I am ALL too familiar with the orange bedsheets that result from an overnight stay in fake tan on a Thursday night. As if washing sheets wasn't annoying enough, a coconut smelling orange stain always just adds insult to injury. So, needless to say, when the email hit my inbox that there was tan brand with products that promise to be solve my stain problems, I was very excited to try it.
Minx Tan is an Aussie-made, vegan, paraben and cruelty-free self tanning brand founded by Monica Griffin. Monica's passion for skincare - a result of seeing the damage melanoma can have first hand - was what drove her decision to establish Minx Tan back in 2010 when the tanning trend was still in it's early days. Minx Tan tan is full of skin-loving ingredients like vitamin E, coconut oil and coconut water, so it moisturises while you get that sought after holiday glow.
"Every product that we make uses simple, honest, Australian ingredients that care for the skin. We believe Minx Tan helps women feel confident and body positive" - Monica Griffin, founder.
The product that had me especially excited was their Tan Dry powder, a super swish product containing organic ingredients and sun-dried clays. This little beauty absorbs any stickiness on your skin after you've had a spray tan (or done it yourself in your bathroom before a weekend event if you're me), leaving your skin feeling velvety, smooth and dry. AND - the best part - it minimises rub off, smell and transfer to clothing or sheets!
"Self-tanning empowers women to feel confident in their kin without causing long term damage derived from the sun" - Monica Griffin
Catch me looking glowing, more confident and sun safe than ever on the weekend with no orange sheets in sight!
