Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product The Elemis tan accelerator went on evenly and smoothly. It soaked in quickly and did not mark clothes. It recommends 1-2 weeks use before holiday, I used it only for four days and have come home with the best tan I have ever had. A deep golden colour that everyone has complemented. I will definitely always use this product before going in the sun. Another great product from Elemis 29 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely treat pre holiday Excellent product to elongate the post holiday glow 08 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product Really nice application feel. The product does what it says 'on the tin'. Speeds up the tanning process with the added benefit of helping with heat rash. The product has a slight tint to it which will temporarily stain underwear / bedding, but this washes off easily. The only point I would make is that it does not really moisturise the skin much, so you will need an additional moisturiser if you have dry skin. All in all a good product which I would recommend - although would be nice if a larger size was marketed as a tube will only just last you two weeks (recommended usage time before going on holiday). You therefore need to buy two tubes, or alternatively try to obtain a larger size. 03 June 2014
