Suitable for all skin types and fuelled by antioxidants and natural ingredients, vitage® Illuminating Tanning Drops tan and care for skin. Vitamin E neutralises free radicals, while the citric acid balances, brightens and smoothes the skins texture by opening pores and removing dead skin cells. For a longer-lasting, streak-free tan, Erythrulose is combined with fake tan and skin colouring agent DHA. This helps create a deeper, more even and natural looking tan without exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.

For a flawless, glowing complexion with no streaks, clogged pores or dryness  and with skin boosting and smoothing properties, vitage® Illuminating Tanning Drops work effortlessly together with any skin care regime to achieve a healthy all year round glow.
