If you're someone who fake tans, you'll know one of the most annoying parts of the process is having to scrub it all off ready for the next batch to go on.
Sometimes, it genuinely feels like you've taken five layers of skin off with it.
Sadly, though, it's one of the only ways to ensure a smooth application, and with summer well and truly in full swing, getting that all-important sunkissed look is key for many of us.
But keeping it constantly topped up can be a bit of a nightmare. Plus, it can take weeks for a home tan to fully come off in the shower, meaning you’ve either got to just deal with uneven patches or be patient and wait.
However, this problem could very well be a thing of the past if the reviews of Rose and Caramel's Purity Excel 60-second tan remover are anything to go by.
The product is described as a blend of key self-tan removal ingredients, natural pearlite and rejuvenating salts, and will cost you £29.99 per 440ml tub or £19.99 for 200ml.
Sure, it’s a bit pricey - but it appears it’s worth the money for regular self-tan users, and one even said ‘it may seem a bit steep but the tub is surprisingly big’.
Numerous people have taken to social media to share their love for the scrub, with one writing on TikTok: “Ok this is the best tan remover I’ve ever come across… I’m obsessed.”
Dozens of others have demonstrated strip tests, showing how easy it is to simply wipe the tan off after as little as one-minute post-application.
The countless TikTok videos have done their job, as said by one five-star reviewer: “This was recommended through TikTok.”
They added: “As someone who uses ultra dark fake tan and never found a tan remover that works, I was sceptical.
“This stuff is amazing! The tan wipes off my body in a few swipes after only 3/4 days, what more could I ask for? It also smells unreal!”
Another wrote: “I’ve had disappointing results with tan remover in the past (and this was from the well-known market leader) but this stuff actually works!
“I made the mistake of not leaving it on long enough first time, but on the following attempt I left the granular, jelly-like gunk on for a few minutes (it recommends three) and the false tan came off relatively easily with an exfoliating mit.
“It still takes a bit of work mind, but a lot easier and more effective than the other brand I’ve used. It’s mildly scented and pleasant to use.”
So if you’re a fake tanner in need of a new removal solution, this may be the investment for you.
