I’m always very nervous to recommend a tan accelerator so I’ll start out by saying that this has no SPF and must be used with SPF over the top.
I’ve now got a few samples of cult-product, Carrot Sun, and they’re unlike anything I’ve come across before. The jellies work by using L-Tyrosine and carotenoids to encourage tanning, but also contain fatty acids, anti-oxidants and fruit and nut oils. They smell amazing.. particularly the Tropical Fruit one. The texture is more of a balm consistency than anything. It’s the first time that Carrot Sun has been available easily in the UK and you can find it HERE.
Its totally up to you whether you like to tan or not – Carrot Sun mentions that it will also work with sunbeds but I can’t advise you more strongly not to go anywhere near a sunbed. It also indicates against use if you are gluten intolerant. And don’t forget SPF!

PS: Adding this in a bit later on in the day after using it… its quite ‘heavy’ feeling once its on but I have to say, it works. This afternoon’s little two hours in the sun (with SPF) and my arms are definitely tanned. I do tan quickly and easily but even for me there is a noticable difference in the time it takes using Carrot Sun. Fast.
