Travel Tan - FAQ

What is Travel Tan
Travel Tan by Custom Tan is a revolutionary, environmentally and vegan friendly product.  The Travel Tan was developed specifically for the girl who wants to look tanned, but to protect her skin too.  

How do I use it?
Apply just as you would your moisturiser.  If using Travel Tan for it's sunscreen, remember to apply before heading out in the sun.

Can I use it on my face?
Yes, Travel Tan is designed for use from top to toe.  

Is it a fake tan?
Yes - absolutely!  Unlike our competitors who claim 'tanning oils' this actually has sunless tan in it, so you don't need to worry about damaging your own skin while sun 'tanning'.  

But does it contain sunscreen?
Yes - absolutely!  Unlike our competitors who claim 'natural sunscreen' from included oils, our product actually DOES CONTAIN SUNSCREEN.  

What else is in it?
Think of summer essentials in a pouch.  This is your summer beauty must have.  Travel Tan contains:

Natural Vitamin E to repair the skin and protect against harsh environmental damages
Macadamia oil smooth fine lines, rehydrate dry and sun-damaged skin, rejuvenate tired skin
Almond Sweet oil for intense hydration that soothes and softens the skin
Sunflower oil helps to retain the skin’s moisture with calming properties

How long will a Travel Tan pouch last me?
The Travel Tan pouch is 100g of pure indulgence.  We have slathered it all over our body to give you the best possible idea on how long it will last you.  We estimate that on average, you should get 5-6 full body applications out of your Travel Tan pouch. 

How is Travel Tan different from the Custom Tan mousse? 
Custom Tan's Self Tanning & Instant Bronzer mousse has been voted Australia's Best Fake Tan 3 times.  The mousse goes on brown and as a foam, where as the Travel Tan is a coconut milky colour which applies like a moisturiser.

Does it really work?
Ah - yeah!  Don't expect to go from Nicole Kidman to Beyonce's complexion after one application.  This is a gradual tanner which means that you have the ability to deepen the result by applying Travel Tan until you reach your desired shade. 

Is it cruelty and vegan friendly?
Absolutely!  Our founder has been vegetarian for over twenty years, and is a strong advocate of animal rights.  Every Custom Tan product is cruelty free and vegan friendly and we wouldn't have it any other way.
