This is the new illumin8 Dry Oil Express Spray Tan from VANI-T AUSTRALIA. This is the liquid form that you use in their Tan Handy Personal Tanning System. This is also available as a mousse. This self-tanning product contains a blend of 8 heavenly oils, which are Coconut Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, and Orange Oil. With antioxidants and vitamins, light reflecting particles and ultra-hydrating properties your skin will glow with a luminous, dewy sheen and supreme colour.

You can decide on how dark you would like the tan by leaving the tan on for a specified amount of time before showering: 1 Hour = Medium. 2 Hours = Dark Tan, 3+ Hours = Ultra Dark Tan. 

I am new to using a spray tan machine but have found it to be relatively easy. If only I had someone who could do my back for me, haha! As this was my first ever attempt at using a tanning machine, I think I did ok. I will get better with time though. The machine also has a setting to dry your tan. FYI, I used my shower to spray the tan on. I thought this would be suitable as it would be easy to clean up. I didn’t notice any overspray!

I left the tan on for an hour before rinsing off in the shower. I was very happy with my beautiful medium tan. As a matter of interest, next time I will try for two hours. Below, you can see photos of the progress of my tan, which I documented up to 8 days. I was surprised at how long this tan lasted; I didn’t use a tan extender either.
