Iconic Bronze is a brand I’ve seen all over the Instagram feeds of some of my favourite Irish Bloggers. I was dying to try it, so when an unexpected parcel from them turned up at my door, I was delighted!
I had heard so much about this self-tan eraser and I couldn’t wait to try it.
Instructions on the bottle – apply foam generously to dry skin and work up a lather. After 5-10 minutes, gently exfoliate the skin using an exfoliating mitt before washing away any tan residue.
This product was sent from heaven. It’s something every fake tan addict – like myself – need in their lives. It saves so much energy and time! I’ve used the self-tan eraser every weekend since I got my first bottle!
I always find it difficult to get a mousse that doesn’t dry the skin. Iconic Bronze maintain that their products are skincare as well as self-tan. Their vision is well and truly proven with their mousse. It smells so yummy as you apply it and doesn’t dry out your skin. I tanned at night and washed it off the morning after. There was a little bit of a “tan” smell but nothing my perfume and moisturiser couldn’t hide. I really liked the colour of the dark mousse, but to go darker for the weekend, I applied a second coat two days after the first one.
I can’t describe how incredible the lotion smells when it is being applied. Fingers crossed Iconic Bronze bring out a perfume with the scent! Luckily, there is a guide colour to help you guarantee an evenly spread tan, minus any streaks. I had to stand around for about 10 minutes before putting pyjamas on to ensure it was 100% dry. In the morning, it washed off perfectly in the shower. As I’ve stated in my Top Tips for Tanning post, I moisturise after every shower to maintain an even colour. One thing I will say is, the lotion smells a bit stronger than the mousse after it’s been washed off. It took two or three showers for the tan smell to disappear. The lotion lasted around 5-7 days (impressive) before I decided it was time to use the self-tan eraser.

Iconic Bronze is sold in Pennies in the South of Ireland and Gordon’s Chemist in Northern Ireland. I’m so impressed with the affordable price of Iconic Bronze products too!
