Australis Rapid Tan | Take Our Sun With You

Australis Rapid Tan
Brought to you by Nuffnang and Australis.

I am incredibly excited to introduce you all to a new product by the Aussie cosmetics brand we all know and love...
Australis now have Rapid Tan!


Just in time for the summer season, Australis have brought out a whole range of tanning products so you can take our sun with you and be golden all summer long! Perfect plan, right?

What's so great about this range are the formulations and the accessories available. Firstly you have the Chocolate Mousse, which can I just say smells literally like chocolate! None of that horrible tan smell thank goodness! It's the perfect colour for pale girls, you can see exactly where you've applied it and where to rub it in. You can choose the level of darkness by how long you leave it on before showering (only takes 1 to 3 hours!). Next up is the Purple Mousse, for all the girls out there who have an olive or European skin tone. Using this one will result in a rich chocolate dark tan, counteracting those orange tones found in medium/olive skin. Both tans are triple-moisturising with Vitamin E, Aloe Vera and fruit extracts. Lastly there's no tanning love without an Australis glove! They've brought out the first ever micro-sponge tanning mitt in a 3-piece pack called No Glove, No Love. It includes a large mitt for your body, a small one for your face and an exfoliation mitt for the shower. The tanning mitt feels like a thick scuba suit and gets that tan on so smoothly without a single streak.
Australis Rapid Tan Mousse Review
Australis Tanning Mitt

For those of you who've been following me for a while now, you'll know that I am hands down a "pale person". Even the lightest shades of foundation don't always cut it for me. It's been a few summers now since I've sat out in the sun for longer than 10 minutes, as my skin is quite freckly and I try to protect it as much as possible.

Along comes Australis Rapid Tan in the Chocolate Mousse version and I was like, "You know what? I'm going to give this a go". I want a change this summer. I want to be all bronzed and glowy. I've had some bad tanning experiences in the past but this might be different.

I used the Australis exfoliating mitt in the shower the night before and gave my legs a good scrub. The next day I put on the large glove, pumped some foamy mousse onto it and smoothed it over one leg at a time. It didn't freak me out at all. It blended in so quickly and was dry in no time. Smelt like chocolate, wasn't sticky whatsoever. I threw on an old tee dress and decided to push this tan to the limit, leaving it on for 3 hours to see how dark it would get. After only 3 hours (spent working at the computer) I had a quick shower to rinse it off and pat my skin dry with a towel.

My legs looked naturally tanned. No streaks, no patches, they were just a beautiful golden brown. I couldn't believe how fast and easy the process was and I went to bed that night, rest assured that tan wouldn't end up all over the sheets. How good is that!

Australis Tan Review
Australis tan before and after
After giving Rapid Tan a try I can safely say it is so much better than tans I've tried in the past. It doesn't smell nearly as bad and doesn't make me look orange at all. The coverage turned out so even and natural, and this formula worked perfectly on pale skin. I'm definitely making it part of my beauty routine this summer!

New Australis products always tend to fly off the shelves so if you want to try out this new tan for yourself then you will find Rapid Tan and the No Glove, No Love kit on the Australis website and in Priceline stores across Australia.

I'm giving away 3 Australis Rapid Tan Packs and a complimentary mitt pack to 3 lucky followers! All you have to do is comment on this post with your name and email (so I can contact the winner) and tell me:
Which Australis tanning product would you love to try and why?

  1. I'd love to try Milk Chocolate. I'm pale and have blue, veiny legs (ugh sounds like I have cheese for legs) so I'm always looking for the perfect self-tan.

  2. I would love to try the chocolate mouse! I've just recently got a new job where I work everyday till late, it gives me no time to tan and I'm always looking for a nice natural product. It would be helpful to me too as i live around the beaches in Cairns and I shine like a diamond in the sun im that pale now.

  3. This looks awesome! I'd definitely give the chocolate mousse a whirl! I'm so pale and every year I get more and more freckles which turn a thousand shades darker when the sunlight touches my skin. So spending copious amounts of time sunbaking is becoming less and less appealing :(

    I've been searching for months for a natural looking tan but everything seems to turn me into a walking orange. So I continue my quest to find the perfect tan product! :)

  4. I would LOVE to try the chocolate mousse (LOL autocorrect tried to change that to mouse). I have suffered from severe psoriasis for years and just this Fall I have cleared it completely thanks to a new medication. Its the first time I have had clear skin in over 10 years and I would love to see what it looks like with a tan! I am a freckled girl so tans only come from a bottle for me! I have used so many products in the past but I have never been able to wear short skirts or dresses due to the psoriasis on my legs! Would love to show up to a holiday party with a short dress and tan legs!

    Im in the states, so not sure if Im able to enter but I figured it was worth a shot ;-)

  5. Id love to try the purple mousse! I'm pretty new to the self tanning world as I am already naturally tanned. However I don't like to lay out in the sun roasting my skin away lol as we all know.. Australia has the highest uv Rays all year round! I live on the Gold Coast so having a tan is kind of needed all the time haha. Very informative post ❤️ xxxo alizechan91@gmail.com

  6. I'm a pale gal as well. I've never really been into tanning, probably because I'm a tad on the lazy side but I can admire a nice tan. And who doesn't like the smell of chocolate?!

  8. I would love the Rapid Tan in Chocolate Mousse. Am quite hopeless with self-tanning, so love the fact that you can leave it on to deepen the colour and the application seemed so easy and streak free.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'd love to try the Chocolate Mousse! I'm pretty pale and tend to avoid the sun altogether due to my rosacea - when I am out and about though for long periods it usually results in a burn as opposed to a tan :(
    In the past I've been called 'albino' jokingly by some friends when playing sports (great friends I know lol). So I think this is quite an exciting product innovation and would really give that extra confidence boost in summer! :)

  11. I've often been disappointed by self tanning results (and therefore put off doing myself) because of streaky finishes and yellow hands so The No Glove, No Love mitt kit is the perfect solution to my tanning dilemma.

  12. I'd love to try the Australis Rapid Tan Chocolate Mousse as I am yet to find a self-tanning product I like due to smell & looking like an oompa loompa. This looks like the perfect tan for me!

  14. Summers almost here and its time for me to get my gorgeous glow. I love having tanned skin but I don't know what products to buy. These products look very satisfactory and I'd love to give them a try. The chocolate mousse and tanning mitt catch my eye. I love how it smells like chocolate and how it moisturises your skin. The mitt would be an ideal product because the last time I tried a tanning product my hands turned dark orange which was clearly visible. I would love to look good with a natural looking tan this summer.

  17. I would love to try the chocolate spray!! It would be great for those instances when I'm feeling a little pale and have forgotten to tan the night before for an event!

  19. The chocolate mousse! As I'm pale as pale but always afraid to try tan but this one sounds ideal! And chocolate smell... YUM!

  20. Revealing my legs in summer is like one of those old Harpic White ads — everyone immediately recoils and tries to shield themselves from the blinding whiteness. Needless to say, I'd love to try the Chocolate Mousse, for everybody else's safety as well as my self-confidence!

    AUSTRALIS is a great brand i love and trust and have been using their products for quite some time now. I'm very conscious of how much time i spend in the sun due to the risk of skin cancer which is why i would love to try the Chocolate Mousse Rapid Tan. The results look flawless and very natural.

  26. I'd love to try the chocolate mousse to give my pale skin a spruce! Summer's coming, the birds are humming & Christmas events are quickly forthcoming! Having a tan would make me feel so very glam, then I wouldn't feel like I'd need to hide from the cam! Confidence is a must & in this mousse I trust because in your blog I have sussed; now no more mistrust, because I won't look orange, so it's time to adjust & look as pretty as stardust!!

  32. The purple mousse for sure!! So different to any tans that are green based and what not, would be amazing to see how it works.Im olive skinned so it would be amazing to try since i usually turn out orange!

  33. Firstly, I'm going to be completely honest with you when I say I've had some terrible fake tans. I've been white, orange, green, splotchy and patchy (does any of this sound familiar?!) I've spent days scrubbing my body clean again just to repeat the cycle of walking around the house holding my arms to the sky (I won't be caught dead with white arm pits). Yet, today I sit here still searching for the right tan for me. A tan that's ultimately flexible, cruelty free (Am I right?!) that also sets sleek and sexy. I think Rapid Tan might just be my perfect match! Sincerely jessaus@outlook.com

    ReplyDelete
  34. The chocolate mousse looks like my type. Have always been scared to try a tan at home, but Australis looks like the one for me. After winter I was blinded by the site of my lilly white legs, hoping and praying that this will give me a summer glow all year round!

  39. Please let me try the Rapid Tan in Chocolate Mousse. I can't spend a lot of time in the sun as it just tires me out; the heat. Be so nice to find something that would colour me up FAST so I don't look pasty. Not having to avoid furniture ALL DAY until the tan lotion has finished working would be GREAT! full-on-fun@hotmail.com

  49. Chocolate mousse rapid tan because I am constantly every 6 months getting BCC's (basil cell carcinova) removed from all over my body as I tried to tan myself in my youth, now all I do is fake tan. Need one that is not orange looking or blotchy and doesn't look too fake.

  50. I would love to try the chocolate mousse as i have just turned 18 and would love to feel sexy and fun when i go out as i have lost a lot of confidence to a psoriasis on my legs, which sucks having it at such a young age. I look up to Kim Kardashian as she continues to radiate confidence despite her similar skin condition, and having a fake tan will give me the opportunity to feel the same :)

I also love that Australis products are cruelty free and majority are vegan (yay!) Help me get summer ready! ;) xxx Jennifer (j_designs@outlook.com)

  58. I would love to say the Purple Mouse but since I am fair and I hate my skin and am always looking for something to make my skin look tanned. Particularly when you want to wear a dress or shorts nothing looks nicer than a lovely pair of brown legs I stay our of the sun since having a skin cancer removed so I would dearly love to try the Chocolate Mouse please kathyostapenko@gmail.com

  61. annexynos@gmail.com (Anastasia Xynos) I would love to win the Chocolate Mousse colour as my skin is very pale. I like the fact that it smells like chocolate and allows you to see where you have applied the tan so you can apply it evenly. IT also allows you to select different shades depending on how many layers are applied.

  62. I work permanent night duty - coming up to 4 years now! I share your struggles with finding a light enough foundation, and can't wear anything white as it makes me look like a ghost. I have had a few bad experiences with fake tans, and looking orange. The chocolate mousse colour sounds perfect for me, and I can't resist anything that smells like chocolate! Dani

    I would love to try the chocolate mousse one. Being pale myself, going to the beach is a pain, unless you like getting sunburnt. The Australis brand offers a reliable range of products, their Rapid Tan being one. I'm sure this product will offer me a beautiful, even tan, something lacking with most tanning companies today.
