When taken in a high enough doses (purely vegetable based) this can result in storing in the skin, for a healthy looking golden hue to pale skins all year round.

As Tan Gummies are held in the buccal cavity for a considerable time, results are enhanced better than ever before, due to direct absorption through the cheek walls.

A post shared by UTan and Tone™ (@utanandtone) on

The revolutionary tanning product is said to “help accelerate & enhance the perfect bronze tone to pale skins, with & without the sun.”

It's advised to eat two bears a day for approximately two to three weeks before spending some time in the sun.


       - This ingenious trick will save your bed sheets from fake tan!

The creators of the drug say that the potent actives need to be held in the skin cells for a considerable amount of time and this makes the skin more susceptible to gaining a gradual tan.

They're also said to be simply delicious, coming in a sweet raspberry flavour.

They're sold out online and don't yet ship to NZ so you may be waiting awhile yet to get that bronzed glow.

Why does this not sound natural/healthy to us....? Maybe we're just sceptics but we'll stick to our Bondi Sands for now...
