These 6 Products Are Your Sun-Safe, Summer Essentials

For bronzed, glowing skin without the sun damage this summer, this homegrown beauty brand has you covered.

Coco & Eve

Fake tan has come a long way. 

Once associated with streaky, patchy, and orange skin, fake tan formulas have undergone a makeover and are now a must-have for nailing perfect summer skin. 

Not only are we more sun-smart than ever, with SPF a non-negotiable part of our everyday skincare routine, but the products we use to give our skin a gentle glow are better than ever. 

One brand leading the way? Coco & Eve. Inspired by the island paradise that is Bali, it’s become a summer staple for many, with one bottle of their iconic self-tan selling every 20 seconds

The secret? The beauty products combine luscious tropical ingredients (think raw virgin coconuts, cocoa, papayas, and mangoes) with serious science for your best hair and skin yet. Plus, the formulas are free from drying and damaging sulfates, phthalates, and parabens, and the brand is proudly 100% clean and cruelty-free.

Here, we round up six products we’re adding to shelves for our most gorgeous skin yet this summer.

Coco & Eve

Antioxidant Face Tanning Micromist, $45

This new product has become an instant fave, selling out twice since its release. Offering a sun-kissed glow while nourishing the skin with powerful antioxidants, its lightweight formula is also enriched with hyaluronic acid and dragon fruit extract. Simply mist a light layer over a clean face and neck for instant hydration, waiting 30 seconds for the product to be fully absorbed before continuing on with the rest of your skincare routine.

Coco & Eve

Sunny Honey Bali Bronzing Foam, $45

A cult classic among self-tan enthusiasts, one bottle of this Bronzing Foam is sold every 20 seconds. The anti-cellulite, anti-ageing self-tan is made with zero nasties and has been created using unique Cellushape formula to hydrate and firm the skin. Plus, it leaves skin with a delicious tropical mango and guava scent.

Coco & Eve

Bronzing Face Drops, $39

Gradual, glowing skin more your thing? This ultra-hydrating (and dermatologically-tested) face tanner is uniquely formulated with Bali Botanicals and super-hydrating hyaluronic acids to increase skin elasticity, all while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The best part? You’re in control of your glow. For a deeper tan, simply use more drops.

Don’t forget your at-home, self-tan essentials: an exfoliating mitt to prep your skin pre-application; a soft velvet tanning mitt for even coverage and no mess (and no orange hands!); and a Deluxe Vegan Kabuki Brush to blend those tricky-to-tan areas like hands, feet, and face.

Coco & Eve

Daily Water Gel SPF50+ Sunscreen, $39

Of course, the most important part of glowing skin is healthy skin, so protecting it daily with sunscreen (no matter the time of year) is essential. This Australian-made, ultra-hydrating, and lightweight SPF50+ sunscreen is infused with skin-loving ingredients (think hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and vitamin E) for a silky, fast-absorbing finish.

Coco & Eve

Body Sunscreen SPF50+, $38

That sunscreen protection without that sunscreen feeling. This fast-absorbing, weightless, and non-greasy Australian-made sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays. 

Shop now.

Daily Radiance Primer SPF50+, $42

We love a multi-tasking primer. This one protects against UVA and UVB rays, photo-ageing, pollution, and blue light damage, all while being the perfect base for your face (phew). Wear under makeup or as a skin-loving serum with added sun protection.
