Au Courant recommends using a small sponge applicator which COSTS €4.50, to apply its face gel for an even glow. The Platinum gel itself is a little pricier at €33.50 but as it comes in three shades, all skin types are catered to. Phone 01-2051022 for stockists.
"Au Courant" means "up to date" and "informed on current issues." But it is also the name of a company that produces an instant spray tan and a number of tanning options for at home use.
One that I like is the Au Courant Instant Sunless Tanning Lotion 8 fl. oz. in a plastic, pump bottle.
This particular tanning product looks as dark as melted chocolate, but it disappears into your skin with a fruity smell and just a slight tan-until a few hours pass (the color develops within 3-5 hours). Use a sponge applicator, of use your hands (I did, but I washed them quickly with an exfoliating scrub).
On my pale skin, once a week was enough to make me look like I had a believable bronze.
Once you get the color you want, apply every 4-5 days to maintain it. The product has a nice smell, dries quickly, and "tans" you with a brown-ish, not orange, color.

I don't know about you, but I spent the official summer kickoff at the beach and it was amazing! Gorgeous blue skies, just a few fluffy white clouds and a brilliant yellow sun burning in the sky. And speaking of burning, that's exactly what I didn't want to have happen to my delicate winter-weary skin. So I stocked up on high SPF sunscreen to see me through an afternoon in a breezy beach chair with a cooler full of icy cold soda. I also had a stack of glossy mags to keep me occupied, my trusty shades, a beach towel and all sorts of little odds and ends to make my afternoon a joy to experience.
PERFECT YOUR HEALTHY GLOW
Au Courant Dishes Sunless Tanning Tips
You’ve banned tanning beds and hours of sunbathing from your beauty regime and replaced it with a healthy, safe alternative: sunless tanning. Au Courant, the company behind the world’s first instant spray tan, gives you a sunless tanning tutorial and ways to extend the life of your sunless tan.
For the ultimate glow, you’ll need to practice these easy steps for an even, gorgeous bronze:
- Exfoliate from head to toe! “It’s best to exfoliate before you tan to ensure that your skin is smooth and even for a flawless application,” said Au Courant’s Sue Horrell. “Use our Ultra-Nourishing Face & Body Polish for a moisturizing exfoliation pre-tan.”
- For hard to place reaches, like your back, be sure to use Au Courant Sponge On A Stick to ensure that you’re covering all those hard to reach places — this convenient sponge makes applying cream to your back a breeze.
- To avoid streakiness, be sure to take your time and pay careful attention that you are thoroughly covering every inch of your body.
- For a deeper, longer lasting tan, use a layering technique. In order to do so, apply two or more coats of tanner on the same day or one day apart. There is no need to shower, exfoliate or moisturizer in between these double-sessions.
- Do not shower for 24 hours in order to allow color to soak in and reach its peak.
- Post-tan be sure to keep moisturized. Try Au Courant’s Sunless Tanning Extender, designed to nourish, revitalize and hydrate the skin by incorporating a skin-soothing Aloe Vera Gel, this extender keeps your sunless tan looking fresh and radiant!
Available in mousse, gel, spray and lotion forms, Au Courant’s collection of sunless tanning products leave your skin radiant and beautiful.

Ready, set, glow! Sunless tanning tips
Achieve a gorgeous shimmer and color from head to toe
By Bobbie Thomas
June 1, 2010
The potential for skin damage from the sun should have you hiding under a hat or smothering on the SPF, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look luminous. If a tan is your must-have accessory for summer, the solutions for getting a faux glow are becoming easier and more innovative by the day. TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com’s Bobbie Thomas shares her secrets for achieving the perfect beach-babe look:
When it comes to applying product, there are a number of different options. Gradual tanners are not only great for beginners, but anyone who wants to maintain a tan.
Au Courant’s sponge on a stick helps you apply the brand’s Sunless Tanning Mousse in the most hard-to-reach spots ($1.49 per stick, $29.99 for the mousee; aucourant.com).
Our sincerest thank's to Bobbie Thomas!
