Tanologist, the revolutionary new tanning range, which is vitamin-infused, vegan friendly and cruelty-free, has endless benefits, including speed, no guide colour (so no pesky stains on your sheets!) and possibly best of all… no smells!

Here Lottie reveals her top tips so YOU can decide whether you want to be lightly sun-kissed or deeply bronzed 

An innovative format  

The range centres around three innovative formats: drops, water & mousse. The self-tan drops (available now at Superdrug from £9.99) have a unique take on self-tanning with the format allowing you to transform your favourite moisturiser, serum or facial oil into a customised self-tanner where you control how deep you want your colour to be.

One of the brand's best-sellers is undoubtedly the transparent, self-tan water that contains advanced tanning technology for a super-hydrated glow with no streaks. It's available to buy in light, medium or dark and is packed full of vitamins and skin-loving ingredients, perfect to use on both the face and body.

Top tip: Keep your self-tan water in the fridge and use as a refreshing mist on hot summer days – it's Lottie's go to on holiday!

If you're an experienced tanner then you'll be familiar with the self-tan mousse (available now at Superdrug from £9.99) – a trusted self-tanning product which Tanologist have developed in a never before seen crystal clear formula, free from unnecessary dyes to prevent staining and colour transfer.

Never used self-tan before? Then the Gradual Tan Lotion is the perfect starting point for radiant buildable glow that develops over the course of 1-2 days. It's also ideal for using on those in between days to top up your existing colour for a longer lasting tan.  

Express, glowing skin is powered by 4 levels of time

• 3 hours = Golden

• 4 hours = Bronzed

Customise your shade

Lottie: The Tan Geek! 

Speaking about the range, Lottie said: 'I've always called myself a 'tanologist' – because I'm a total tanning geek! 

'As a make-up artist and beauty nerd, I'm constantly experimenting with different products – mixing tans into my foundation and moisturiser – you name it, I've tried it, but nothing has given me that flawless, glowing skin finish I'm obsessed with. 

'With other fake tans either my skin breaks out or my pores feel clogged and I hate that fake tan smell. 

'I've developed this range to deliver everything I wanted in a tan – clean, clear and streak free results and I can't wait for you to become a total 'tanologist' too'

Lottie says 'Want a super dark colour? Leave your tan on overnight before showering to get the deepest, darkest glow'

Apply and go 

Lottie and the Tanologist team have given tan fans the unique treat of no guide colour on the products so you can tan and go. Fans love its clean and clear formula which prevents clogged pores as well as no transfer – the perfect tan and go product.

Aware of the busy nature of day-to-day life, she explained: 'Our tans have no guide colour – I apply this and go straight out so don't need to worry about stained sheets or clothes.'

Tanning mishaps?  

The dreaded streaks and neon hands are often a peril that comes with self-tanning but Tanologist has the solution to combat tanning disasters with its self-tan eraser and primer.

This is the perfect 2 in 1 product that helps you prime your skin for tan by deeply exfoliating and getting it ready for application, removing dead skin cells from your complexion. When you're over it, use it as an eraser to remove any remnants of self-tan.
