Here are some tips on how to get a natural-looking finish on your hands and feet:
- Make sure you have exfoliated these areas to remove any excess dead skin.
- Use a tiny bit of moisturizer on the drier areas of your body such as your hands, feet, elbows and knees. This will act as a barrier to the tan and stop these areas getting too dark.
- Use tan sparingly on your hands, elbows and feet, applying just a pea sized amount of tanning foam and continuing adding a tiny bit more until the desired coverage is achieved. Tan will naturally cling to these drier areas so start slow. For hands - pump a pea sized amount of Sunny Honey onto the kabuki brush for the top of each hand. For the feet - use the residue of Sunny Honey from yours legs and sweep over the feet with the kabuki brush. Use a wipe to gently dab the edges and soles of the feet. For the face - pump 2 pea sized amounts onto the kabuki brush to sweep evenly over your face.
- Try our Deluxe Vegan Kabuki Brush! We have created this to ensure a complete, flawless glow in this tricky areas. Pump a tiny bit of our tan onto the brush and then gently buff over your hands and feet, making sure to get inside all of those little creases (such as your knuckles).
It depends on which shade of Sunny Honey you choose, our Bali Bronzing Foam is available in 3 shades; Medium, Dark and Ultra Dark.
Take a look at our social or our reviews page on our website for some before and after shots. If you like your tan not as dark, we suggest you leave it on your skin for 2 hours, alternatively for a deeper tan leave overnight.
If the application was within the last 2 hours, try using warm water and soap. If the tan has developed, we recommend an exfoliating mitt to try to remove the tan, but it will be tricky to remove completely. Nail varnish remover may help on nails.
Top tip: apply a tiny bit of moisturiser to your hands, feet and elbows before applying the tan. These are naturally drier areas, and the tan likes to cling here, which causes them to become darker than other areas of your body.

Our tan is free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, formaldehyde, phthalates, mineral oils, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone coal tar, triclosan/triclocarban and retinyl palmitate! We are bursting with natural ingredients which will naturally enhance your skin. We have included a unique cellushapeTM formula infused with raw virgin coconut, botanicals and amino acids to hydrate and firm your skin. Our DHA is also 100% natural!!
Repeated and daily exposure to pollutants and UV radiation can cause significant stress to our skin causing the production of free radicals which can disturb normal cell function and accelerate ageing.
After several years of research on the action of free radicals, Cellushape™️ was created using powerful active ingredients to help delay ageing, restore cell activity and boosts caffeine’s lipolytic effects helping to remove cellulite.
A clinical test was carried out to measure the slimming effect of CellushapeTM on 15 volunteers between 30- 50 years old. Volunteers applied the treatment twice daily for a duration of 28 days on thighs, hips, and buttocks.
They noticed the below:
- A significant decrease in the volume of the buttocks was observed by 73% of volunteers: -0.6% on average (p<0.01) and up to -2.65%.
- A significant decrease in the perimeter of the thighs was observed by 73% of volunteers: -0.5% on average (p<0.01) and up to -1.8%.
- A significant decrease in the volume of the buttocks was observed by up to -4.4% (-0,9% on average).
Yes of course, but for longer-lasting results, we always recommend exfoliating skin lightly ahead of application. Please ensure your skin is completely dry and free of any cream/ oils!
No, Sunny Honey doesn't protect from the sun's harmful UV rays. Please make sure to apply sun protection prior to any sun exposure and reapply as necessary.
We recommend using a tanning mitt for all tanning endeavours to achieve that perfect streak-free glow. Our Soft Velvet Self Tan Mitt is unique due to its material and construction. We have custom-designed the shape to fit your hand perfectly and included an elastic wrist band to stop it slipping off during application. The soft, velvety material ensures a smooth and streak-free application and the protective lining means you won't ever get tan seeping through onto your hands.
Bye, orange palms!
Yes! Our tan is completely safe to use of your face, but as with all beauty products we recommend that you do a patch test first.
As with the rest of your body, make sure that you have exfoliated your face before applying Sunny Honey. Remember, you don't need to apply so much tan on your face if you are using our Soft Velvet Self Tan Mitt. Use a tiny pump of product and gently swirl over your face using circular motions. You can start using what's left on the mitt from tanning your body if you're scared about using too much product.
Our Deluxe Vegan Kabuki Brush is also perfect for tanning your face. Simply apply a tiny pump of our foam onto the brush and blend evenly across your face.
Top tip: be sure to blend the tan into your hairline to get that natural-looking finish.

We always suggest a patch test before using any new beauty product. If you experience an allergic reaction to any of our products, please seek medical advice and contact our Customer Experience Specialist.
YES! You can expect more compliments (and questions on what holiday you have been on), an increase in confidence, a wider smile with brighter looking eyes and temptation to show off your glow. You're welcome. ;)
We don't claim to last 2 weeks as other brands do, that's unrealistic because of the way our cells regenerate! Did you know that you lose around 1 million skin cells every day?!
Our tan lasts for 5-7 days and fades gradually and most importantly, EVENLY! But we have some extra tips to help you get the most out of your tan.
- Be moisture savvy, that's right; grab your favourite body cream and apply it each day to prolong your gorgeous new glow.
- Avoid rubbing or exfoliating your skin within the first 3 days after applying the tan. Once you notice the colour is beginning to fade, start by gently exfoliating to ensure that you get a glorious even fade.
- Avoid those waxing and shaving woes. If you are into any hair removal, make sure that you do it 24 hours before applying the tan; otherwise, you'll be taking off your gorgeous new colour!
- Try not to spend too much time soaking in water.
As everyone skin is different, we always suggest carrying out a skin patch test 24 hours before trying our tan.
To do a patch test, grab a cotton bud and apply a small amount inside of your elbow or behind your ear. Let it dry naturally for 24 hours.
If you notice any form of reaction such as redness, swelling, inflammation or itching, avoid using the product as this is a positive reaction for sensitivity. If you don’t notice any difference, then grab your bottle and tanning mitt and get ready girl!
Absolutely NOT!! We love our fur baby and are cruelty-free, so we do NOT test on animals.
After you've left the tan to develop on your skin for your chosen amount of time and rinsed off in the shower, the colour will stop developing.
NO! We are proud to offer a formula which is easy and stress-free to apply so you won't be experiencing any streaks or patchiness. Our tan contains a colour guide so that you can see if easily when applying your tan. Streaks or patches often occur during the application process, so be sure to exfoliate before applying your tan.
For best results, apply in a room with good lighting and a full-length mirror so you can check that your application is even.
We have spent over a year perfecting our self-tanning formula and have managed to create a beautiful tan which develops into a natural glow. Our formula has colour correcting activities and a green-grey base for a natural golden glow. Our natural and nourishing ingredients work with your skin tone to give you a gorgeous, natural finish.
Have no fear of an orange tan disaster!
Not at all! We have developed our formula so that it has a lovely smell on the skin, no biscuit smell here, even after application! Expect a glorious tropical Balinese mango and guava scent.
YES! The Cosmetic Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA) have confirmed that it is safe to use self-tanning products during your pregnancy. We highly recommend you do a skin patch test before applying a tan (even if you have previously done one). Hormones levels can be higher during pregnancy, which causes an increase in skin sensitivity. If you are at all concerned or you are suffering from a pre-existing condition, please consult a medical professional.
You should store your Sunny Honey in a cool, dark place below 30°C.
Our products can be used on all skin types, but we do advise doing a skin patch test before applying a full body tan. If the skin patch test shows no negative signs, it is safe to use a full-body tan.
As a general rule, it is best to avoid applying the tan to areas with broken skin or skin, which is showing signs of aggravation.
Once opened, your Sunny Honey will last 6 months.
Please wait until your tan has developed and completed to moisturise.
Our tan begins to develop after just 2 hours after which it can be rinsed off with clean water. For a deeper and longer-lasting colour, we recommend leaving it on for up to 8 hours (or overnight!).
The Deluxe Vegan Kabuki Brush is made of nylon bristle, aluminium collar, plastic handle.
Instruction for use: Pump a pea size of Sunny Honey on to the brush. Apply in a circular motion and gradually apply more product until the are is sufficiently covered.
Care Instruction: After use, rinse until water runs clear. Dry with bristle facing downwards.
Size: 25mm x 25mm x 113mm
For the best results, we would advise allowing 4-12 hours before submerging yourself in water to allow your tan to develop fully.
Once you are happy with your colour and have enjoyed the results, go ahead and jump in, but note that seawater and chlorinated swimming pools may cause your gorgeous tan to fade faster.
We find that a tan is a great way to reduce the appearance of scars or stretch marks.
Our suggestions are to apply a small amount of our tan to these areas and allow the colour to develop for 8 hours. Once you have washed off the colour guide you can then go ahead and do a full-body tan. If you find that you want a deeper colour, repeat the process again after 8 hours.
Shave or wax at least 12-24 hours before you apply Sunny Honey.
Just like your foundation on your face that needs time to set, you also would need time for the tan to dry completely before you put your clothes on or get into bed.
Wait about 30 minutes before changing to reduce the risk of staining your garments with the product. We recommend that you wear dark clothes after application and avoid tight clothes.
