Perfectly in time for the upcoming summer Corine de Farme brings out new products under the name Monoï de Tahiti. These products are meant to help you to preserve your tan longer. They all have the scent of coconut oil and tiaré flowers from Tahiti. This also helps with hydrating and strengthening the skin.
Today I’m reviewing three products of the line with you!
First we have the Protecting Dry Oil with SPF 30. This is my favourite product out of all three. The substance is like an oil, but it doesn’t feels greasy and the skin absorbs it very well. I really like that it comes in a spray form because it is so easy to apply it on my skin that way. You really need to smell this stuff, it smells like vacation, something flowery and a bit sweet?
The active ingredients are Octocrylene and Butyl Methoxydibenzoymethane, those are both chemical sunscreens. It also contains cocnut oil, some vitamine E, a fruit extract and ofcourse the tiaré flower extract, but in little doses. The oil comes in a 150 ml bottle and is 9.95 euro. I think that’s pretty ok for the product. It is very easy to use and if you are like me, someone who easily forgets to protect hands against sun damage , this spray is very convenient.
Next up is the Aftersun milk enriched with Monoï de Tahiti. This is perfect for after spending a day in the sun (although I wouldn’t really advise sunbathing) . It helps moisturising the skin which is really important when you are exposed to the sun a whole day. The texture is white and milky and it has the same smell, but a bit more flowery here. The milk is easily absorbed by the skin and your skin really feels soft afterwards.
The milk has ingredients such as mineral oil, glycerin, some silicone, coconut oil, vitamine E, and ofcourse the flower extracts, but again those are listed on the end of the ingredient list. You get 250 ml of product and this goes for 7.99 euro.
Last but not least is the Udder grease Tan aid. This is something that will help you to achieve a nice healthy colour faster. So this is not a tanning product, but it helps you tan faster. The consistency is hard, but it you rub over it a few times it melts between you fingers. It is a bit greasy, but it sinks into the skin quite fast. The grease is colourless and it smells like the other products, like a summer vacation! This product contains no SPF so make sure to protect your skin with an additional sunscreen when you use this!
The grease contains ingredients such as petrolatum, coconut oil, plant extract, skin conditioning ingredients, and the flower extracts. Corine the Farme says that the Oleoyl Tyrosine helps with the production of melanine when you get exposed to the sun. It also helps keeping the skin hydrated. I can’t vouch for it yet, because it’s too early to tell, but I’ll keep you updated! The product comes in a pot of 150 ml and is 5.54 euro.
