‘Orange’ you glad you came here? There’s now a bath bomb that will strip you of your fake tan in just 10 minutes. That’s right, no more awkward scrubbing yourself to remove every last bit of St. Tropez.
If tanning is part of your weekly routine, you’ll know removing the stuff is an absolute nightmare. Thankfully, three sisters from Northern Ireland have gone and released a tan-removing bath bomb.
Self-confessed ‘tanning experts’ Lynsey Bennett, Leah White, and Sarah White plan to take the beauty world by storm with their unique invention. Put it this way, if this was Dragon’s Den, I’m sure Deborah Meadon would be investing.
The sisters work at Belfast’s Secret Day Spa and do around 50 tans a week. Their latest product costs just £8.50, which is a little pricey for a bath bomb, but definitely worth it. Speaking to Belfast Live, Lynsey explained how the women were concerned about what they put on their skin — sparking the idea for a tan-removing bath bomb.
“It goes back to the girls in The Secret Day Spa and because they are skincare therapists they’re really fussy about what they put on their skin and a lot of the exfoliator products on the market are quite harsh on the skin,” said Lynsey.
“So we wanted something that was made of essential oils and something that would really nourish the skin and the girls at the spa are obsessed with bath bombs they buy them for birthdays, Christmas, leaving presents, everything and we were all talking saying, ‘what if it would take your tan off at the same time?’, because they tan every single week and that’s where the idea was born.”
She went on to explain that not only will the bath bomb remove your fake tan, but it also leaves you smelling fab too. Lynsey added, “We worked with a local company in Carrick and we got samples of all different kinds of blends because it had to fit with our ethos of good skincare as well and then we finally got our final product which is packed full of essential oils and it smells amazing.
“Your whole bathroom and even the house will smell of lemon and grapefruit oil.
“After about 10 minutes in the bath you will see your tan just soaking off and all you need to do is give your skin a quick exfoliate as well as it’s so important to remove those dead skin cells.”
