Confession; 7 degree mornings or ice-cold winds will never keep me from having a tan!
Being a self-confessed (faux) tan connoisseur, I am always super excited to hear about brand spanking new self-tanning brands! Especially when they claim to offer the darkest tan attainable AND offer a 100% natural & certified organic formula – no artificial nasties here!
Each product in the Santorini Sun range features innovative formulas using natural ingredients that work to nourish and replenish skin whilst developing a healthy, sun-kissed, flawless tan.
Ingredients include White Tea extract and sweet almond oil.
The gorgeous Greek goddess behind Santorini Sun, Paula Theodore states that she created the brand as she “Couldn’t find a range of products that were both 100% natural and delivered results, so I decided to create my own range inspired by the most magical place on earth! [Santorini, of course!]”
What they say:

What we say:
We were lucky enough to review 4 fabulous Santorini Sun Products…
Here are our thoughts.
Sunless Tanning Lotion RRP $29.95, 250ml
This tanning lotion comes in the ease of a spray bottle- whereby you can spritz this deliciously dark mist over your skin and quickly rub in to give an instant glow.
The tan develops into a deep, golden bronze within a few hours… No tell-tale fake tan streakiness or unpleasant smells!
Tanning Face Cream
RRP $26.95, 100ml
Self tanning lotions made for the body can often be too harsh for the face – drying out your skin, blocking your pores and more seriously causing (disaster!) breakouts.
That’s why the gorgeous geniuses at Santorini Sun have created a tanning formula specifically formulated for your face! The tanning face cream hydrates and protects the facial skin while offering a subtle, non-streaky tan.
The cream also has amazing anti-ageing benefits.
The facial tanner plumps the skin and leaves your face with a subtle ‘glow’ much like you’ve spent a weekend in the sun!
The gentle cream is dark in colouring so it offers an instant glow that develops over a few hours and fades naturally over around 3-5 days.
We recommend lathering on two layers – wait around 10 minutes between layers – of this cream before bed to wake up to a gorgeous Greek Island glow!
(Don’t forget to get your beauty sleep on dark pillowcases to avoid any excess colour rubbing off!)
Sea Salts & Almond Body Scrub
RRP $18.95, 250ml
Santorini Sea Salts leave skin soft, smooth and glowing. Don’t let the salt crystals deter you! These little salt grains are scented with organic almond oil and sweet orange oil.
The exfoliant leaves skin silky and removes any dull, dead skin cells… perfect as a pre-tan prep!
We recommend mixing a large pinch of salts with your fave shower gel as an all-over gentle scrub pre-tanning.
Island Goddess Body Shimmer Cream
RRP $23.95, 250ml
Unleash your inner goddess with a hint of shimmer! Island Goddess is rich body cream with natural almond oil that nourishes the skin with a big hit of golden shimmer…
Lather over a fab (faux) tan – perfect for Summer soirees – or European Summer… for anyone travelling to the Greek Islands this Winter!
We recommend mixing with a great coconut body butter or lathering over your silky pins to enhance your tan.
We are huge Santorini Sun fans and have been using a generous helping of Santorini Sun Face Cream every other day.
And why yes… my bronzed nose has spent the past week Greek Island hopping!!…
