I’ve been taking Thalgo Ocea Sun supplements for a couple of months now and am in no doubt, after the few days of sunshine we’ve had, that they work, and work brilliantly. To cut a long story short, the supplements contain Carotenoids to help develop a tan, Asaxathin to boost melanin production and best of all, Lutein, to protect your retinas from sun damage. 

After really a very short time in the sun – a couple of hours possibly – my skin started to tan. I also religiously use Institut Esthederm in the sun and that also has melanin enhancing ingredients, so the combination means that it takes very little sun for my skin to start going brown. 


Thalgo Ocea Sun (£25 for a month’s supply) should be taken three weeks before sun exposure, and to be fair, I’ve taken them for double the amount of recommended time, but none the less, I love it when a product completely lives up to expectations and there is a tangible result from the claims. 100% recommended.
