Women say they’ve ditched foundation for ‘holy grail’ tanning drops with thousands of five-star reviews

Women say they’ve ditched foundation for ‘holy grail’ tanning drops with thousands of five-star reviews

They say it's made their skin look better than ever and they don't need to wear makeup anymore

Who doesn't want skin that makes them look like they've just come back from a sun-kissed holiday in the Med?

I don't know about you but after a grey and drizzly start to the Great British Summer, I'll happily shell out for any product that delivers that elusive glow.

And it seems our prayers have been answered as women are going wild for these TikTok-famous tanning drops that have been dubbed the 'holy grail' of summer skincare.

Drunk Elephant

After first launching in 2018, the drops from Drunk Elephant have become a cult classic for their ability deliver a subtle bronzing effect while nourishing your skin too.

It's also a pretty foolproof product and one that you'd have to try really hard to mess up. Simply apply it to your face, chest, legs or anywhere you want a touch of colour to.

You can mix in a few drops with your body moisturiser for an overall glow, or even use it to help 'contour' and give a touch of sun-kissed tan by adding it to cheekbones, nose and the top of your forehead where you'd naturally bronze in the sun.

If you're still not totally convinced then let the amazing reviews convince you; the tanning drops have almost 1,200 five star ratings already from those that now call them a 'skincare essential'.

Taking to social media, one recent convert wrote: "I purchased these as they were so hyped up, thought I’d give them a go. OH MY GOD soooo worth it!"

She added: "I’ve completely got rid of my foundation as these give me the colour I need which I would normally just use foundation for. Skin feels and looks so much better since using Drunk Elephant products. Highly recommend this brand!!"

Another fan shared: "I’ve used this product for 3 years (before the huge hype) and was relieved see it finally back in stock as I use this every day! I tan my body and don’t tan my face so needed a product that could add colour to my face even on ‘no makeup makeup days’."

She added: "This was the answer to my pale face prayers! I have acne prone skin and this doesn’t break me out. Other high end and drug store brands that have famous glowy products break me out so bad! Love love love. I think I’ll always use this!"

Founder of Drunk Elephant Tiffany Masterson has described the wildly popular product as 'sunshine in a bottle'.

"I don't wear foundation, but I really wanted something I could mix into my other products to give my skin some colour," she explained.

"The problem was I didn't want to risk a breakout," she said. "So after a few attempts, we landed on a silky, natural-looking bronzing concentrate. D-Bronzi is made with vitamins, antioxidants, peptides, and barrier-supportive fatty acids that defend skin from environmental free radicals."

The drops are packed with antioxidants (great for your skin's barrier function) and peptides (which help to stimulate collagen production, boosting elasticity).

The D-Bronzi drops are part of a ‘trio’ of serums from the Texas-based brand which are designed to give skin a healthy pop of colour while also nourishing your skin.

Also included in the range are the B-Goldi Bright Drops, a formula that gives skin (that’s face, neck, legs - pretty much anywhere!) a subtle sheen without looking like you’ve been doused in glitter. It’s technically a serum packed with active ingredients that target everything from hyperpigmentation to post-breakout scars and dark spots.

And finally there are the O-Bloos Rosi Drops (think souped-up blusher), delivering a natural, peachy flush to your cheeks while keeping your complexion feeling soft and smooth thanks to a mix of omega oils and fatty acids.
