Would you ditch wearing make-up in work for this? Women reveal their secrets to glowing skin throughout the winter… and it’s less effort than you may think
As winter arrives, we may be tempted to wear more make-up for fear of pale, dull and lifeless skin.
But tan fans, in the know, have been racing to buy the world’s first CBD infused tanning water that’s got rid off all the nasties we associate with smelly fake tanners. And the added benefit? It helps reduce redness AND is clearing up peoples spots.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not… With CBD from organically grown cannabis plants from Colorado, organic DHA and anti-bacterial lavender oil or Coconut aloe extracts, these lightweight water mists are what skincare dreams are made of.
We chatted to three women who have added these products into their beauty regime and they all admitted they were ‘astounded’ by the smell, ease of use and low maintenance of this new way to tan. Here they tell us why they’ll never look back.
Lisa Daisley, make-up artist
“It’s given me more confidence, school runs are no longer a dread. I work late and certainly don’t have time in the morning to look presentable. It’s a godsend for this.”
Lisa, makeup artist: “Every single time I wear this, everyone asks if I’ve been on holiday. I must go away every 2 weeks, then! No one believes it to be ‘fake’”
“Some tanning products are very messy and it would make me feel like it was a chore to tan but the utan x Jamie Genevieve CBD Tanning water is super, super easy.
“You literally spray all over your face and neck area after washing your face in the morning or before bed. No need to wash your hands as it’s a spray. I have friends who use it on their arms and chest area, too.
“I get compliments all the time. That it’s a lovely natural tan, even, no streaks, no god awful smell and when I wear it on my face without makeup I have this ‘glow’ apparently.

“My clients who have bought this product after seeing my social media posts and talking to me, have also mentioned that they are sleeping better when using this at night
“For my body the cherry smell from the Turbo Mousse is lovely and even when you rinse this off next day you would not be able to smell any horrid fake tan smell.
“I’ve used many tanning products in the last 20+ years. For the last 6+ years I have only used utan. The smell is completely different from other brands”
Stacey Ma’Har, from Airdrie
“I’ve stopped wearing makeup to work. My colleagues have commented on how lovely my skin looks! The tanning water has really given me the confidence to go makeup free.”
Stacey Ma’Har, 34, from Airdrie, Scotland said: “It [CBD Tanning Water] fits perfectly into my skincare routine and I don’t feel really like I’m tanning.”
“I’ve been using the CBD Tanning Water for a few months now. I was drawn to it because I had never seen a facial tanner like it on the market and I was intrigued.
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant
It’s a naturally occurring substance that’s used in products like oils to boost a feeling of relaxation and calm.
It is added to beauty products as it is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to maintain skin health.
“It’s so easy to use. Personally I like to cleanse my face and apply it before I go to bed. You literally spray and go. I haven’t experienced colour transfer to my bedding or clothes and because it’s in a handy spray I don’t need to scrub my hands.
“It doesn’t smell like fake tan at all. This one has beautiful lavender tones that are especially calming when putting it on before bed.
“I used to worry about looking pale or tired but now I have the confidence that my skin looks great and I only need to add mascara.”

‘They are honestly unreal, I’ve never been so brown in my life! This is my tan after last week’s heatwave! Can we take a moment please’ Demi Sims, UTAN customer

Taylor said: “The Cherry Turbo Mousse has a delicious cherry almond smell rather than making me stink of biscuits like other self tanners”
