Sun Junkie

Hey Dolls,

So recently I was given the opportunity to review some tanning products from a new brand I hadn't heard of before - Sun Junkie (Love the name!). If I hadn't mentioned before, I am very much a tan addict and I am constantly trying out new tanning brands in my search for the perfect tan! I tend to use the sunbeds prior to a holiday or a little bit afterwards in order to maintain my holiday tan, but I try not to use them other than for this reason as we all know its not the best for your skin. If I was just born a Cuban goddess, life would be so much easier....sigh. As I am not, I resort to a trusty bottle to keep my skin glowing all year round! When I received the Sun Junkie tanning products, I couldn't slather the stuff on quick enough!I decided to wear it for my recent night out for my friends birthday so here's what I thought...

Sun Junkie 'Deliciously Dark' Tanning Mousse - RRP £17.99*

"Sunjunkie Deliciously Dark Self Tanning Mousse tans instantly and intensifies over a 3 to 8 hour period. The Vitamin E and Aloe Vera based mousse is quick drying and non greasy and is easily absorbed to produce an outstanding natural looking result" 

When asked what tanning products I usually use - I would always go with the darkest tan. I love the build up to a lovely glowing tan and I really like a deep tan, I know some people don't but I just do - I can't help it! When trying the 'deliciously dark' tanning mousse I found on first impressions that although the tan was a lovely colour it just wasn't as dark as I would have perhaps usually liked, but still okay all the same. I decided to put another couple of coats on to try and get a deeper tan and left it to dry and intensify over night. Okay - so although this tan is instant but not super dark to begin with, it definitely intensifies DARK!! I was like OMG when I woke up the next day - my advice is 1or 2 coats is sufficient - believe me! I absolutely love the golden colour it gave me and I would definitely use it again!

Sun Junkie Body Mist  - RRP £12.79

"Sunjunkie's best selling body mist (airbrush tan in a can!). Scrub off the old tan and spray on the new! Absolutely a fantastic product can be sprayed at any angle. Purely powered by AIR Bodymist 'Tan in a Can' (150mls)."

I used the body mist on my legs as I never really use a spray tan and I figured this would be an easy place to spray and rub in with the tanning mitt. I like to see where I'm putting the tan and sometimes I feel that I'm going to end up streaky when using a spray so I tend to avoid it. However, this tanning spray is really easy to use and you can see exactly where you are putting the tan with it being instant. Again, it intensifies after a few hours and gives you a lovely golden glow. Although a mousse is definitely more for me, I would recommend the spray body mist if you prefer this way of applying tan!  

Sun Junkie Tanning Mitt RRP £3.33

"Apply your Sunjunkie self tanning mousse or spray directly on to your skin...then massage in well with the self tan application mitt. For flawless, streak free results every time, wave goodbye to tanned palms and rubber/plastic gloves." 

I think you all know what a tanning mitt is but I have to say I have ended up buying some rubbish ones before! This one is lovely and soft and isn't too expensive so you might as well pick one up when buying yourself  some tanning treats! 

Have you tried Sun Junkie before? 



  1. I love how deep the colour is, more of a mouse girl too though. I make so much mess with sprays! Lovely review :)
