12 Days of Giftmas - TanOrganic ¦ Giveaway

On the second day of Giftmas my true love gave to me, a healthy glow made easy...

If anyone knows me at all, they know that I'm not a fake tan person. I just don't think it suits me. However, I am still a fan of a fake tan brand...bizarre, right? TanOrganic, are an Irish brand that make the only certified organic fake tan in the world which would be reason enough for me to admire them but I also love a lot of their products. The tanning oil is my go-to when shopping for my sister and their exfoliating mitt and argan oil are my must-haves for soft, happy bodies and hair. In fact, I use their products on the daily. Which is why, even though I don't tan, I am 100% behind this brand and why I had to include them in the 12 Days of Giftmas.


"But what, pray tell, might this 12 Days of Giftmas be?" you're probably asking.

If you didn't read yesterday's post about Lush, let me explain it again!

The 12 Days of Giftmas is a project that occurred to me last week. An idea that I ambitiously decided to go through with very last minute - I must be a lunatic. It's a sort of advent calendar for me and my readers, a way of saying thank you for reading and rewarding you in a small way. For the first 12 days of December, I will be writing a post every day on a shop, brand or item that would make good gifts. This is instead of the long gift ideas posts I've done in the past and offers a more in-depth look at some amazing companies and things. To complement each post, I've also teamed up with these fantastic brands and will be giving something away each day! So, the 12 Days of Giftmas will give you some gift ideas and the potential to win something for a loved one (or yourself!).

Christmas means parties, right? And, for a lot of Irish people, party season means tanning. Obviously, for the skincare conscious like myself, I don't think there's any other option than a fake tan, if you want one. It's not worth hurting yourself over! TanOrganic offers a healthy glow without UV damage or exposing yourself to skin cancer, it also provides an organic, healthy, safe glow!

So, if you're tanning for this part season, you need to hit up TanOrganic. And, if you have pals doing the same, this is where to get them the perfect gift. I promise you, once they try it, they'll be ruined for any other brand!

They have a few different tanning options as well as products for those less interested in tans and more into healthy skin and makeup. Their original Self-Tan (€19.99) offers a streak-free, odourless, non-orange tan which has enough product for 5-6 applications and guarantee you'll be looking glam rather than like an extra in a certain movie about a chocolate factory.

The Tanning Oil (€24.99) which also is without icky, typical fake tan smells, doesn't go orange and offers the same amount of applications but has the added bonus of being moisturising, fast-drying and doesn't budge off your skin once applied - so, you won't have any horror stories about butt prints on walls like I heard of in college...To complement these is the Luxury Tanning Mitt (€5.00) which, I've been told, is the way to make sure you get a perfect, even application. 

For removing remains of a tan or for getting rid of dead skin cells the Tan Erase (€14.99) exfoliator mitt is fantastic. This is a holy grail product for me that I repurchase again and again. Their OilArganic dry oil (€24.99) smells like lemonade (in the best way possible) and makes your skin and hair super happy and hydrated. Again, an item I repurchase and reach for each day.

Finally, their Bronzer Duo (€29.90) has long been my go-to bronzer and one of my favourite highlights is the other half of said duo. It's a great option for vegan and organic makeup fans and is pretty, flattering and in super-cute wooden packaging with a mirror. Pretty much everything you want and need from a bronzer!

Hopefully, you've gotten some gift ideas/party prep inspo from all that! But let's get to the important part - the giveaway! Here's the deets:
