Lancaster Tan Deepener promises to help faster you tan faster, as well as prolong the tan after summer.
What distinguishes it from other similar products is that it contains SPF6 (which doesn’t mean much, but it is still better than no SPF). 200 ml costs for around $40
Lancaster Tan Deepener comes in a jar and has a jam-like texture. It is very sticky and greasy. The consistency is very thick and you need a lot of it. I have spend half the jar only applying it once per day for two weeks.
It smells weird, but not bad.
Tan Deepener is tinted (dark reddish brown). It WILL STAIN, but unlike the stains made by Attiva Bronze, the stains made by Lancaster are possible to wash off (although your experience might differ, so don’t take my word on it). I suggest you to test it on a small piece of fabric.
As for the efficiency, I didn’t noticed that I tanned any faster. The only difference I cold notice was that I’m not as orange (yes, I’m one of those unfortunate souls who are orange when they are tanned).
The only real benefit I could find is that Lancaster Tan Booster is very moisturizing. This is probably related to the fact that it is very difficult to wash of – I can scrub all I like, but it still leaves a thin film on the skin.
Honestly, I don’t think it’s worth the money.
