Lancaster Tan Maximizer

A good After Sun is an absolute must in my job. I am pretty fastidious about wearing SPF, sunscreens and such like so After Sun is no different. There’s nothing worse than having dry, peeling skin and I’ve done it recently by getting burnt and I can guarantee that I won’t be doing it again in a hurry! Lancaster Tan Maximizer is probably one of my favourite sun care items, and I always have a bottle of Tan Max in my case for when I am on long haul.

Lancaster Tan Maximizer is a soothing After Sun, so once applied to skin that has been exposed to the sun it cools, soothes and calms the skin. I like to keep mine in the fridge for a post shower treatment. I love the feeling of cold cream on a warm body. The moisturisers with the cream have active hydrating properties to add moisture back to dehydrated skin. A good intensive moisturiser helps to reduce the risk of peeling by keeping the skin supple and a soft and stop it from drying out.

I think the ingredients within Lancaster Tan Maximizer have made it into a star product. Heliosome, which is an exclusive Lancaster complex helps to prolong your tan for up to 80% longer. So, its not just an amazing moisturiser and soothing lotion, but it keeps you brown. Heliosome stimulates the melanin production in your skin making it rise to the surface and and staying there, making your tan look deeper and last longer. I don’t tend to start fading for a good 3-4 weeks after I have returned home from a beach trip. Over last Winter, I maintained my tan until mid December after finishing flying in October.

A definite must for your holiday suitcase. Available in Selfridges for £22 for 125ml.

  • I love cold after sun after a nice day in the sun. I’m really careful to avoid sun burn so I don’t use after sun that much, normally slap a bit of aloe vera and coconut oil on to keep me moisturised 🙂 this does sounds nice though.

  • You have the best recommendations for holiday/travel products! I’m rather tempted by this for my wedding/holiday trip in July.

    I love this but also love the piz buin version which is much cheaper. Perfect if you need a quick fix and haven’t got this to hand! I use the pre tan as well 😉

    • I haven’t tried the Piz Buin before and after as the sun lotion burns me 🙁 xx
