Here at The Greenstop we go to great lengths to find the best products on the market and Vani T self tanning range is no exception. It’s made from completely organic and natural ingredients, contains no artificial chemicals or parabens, no animal testing, no artificial preservatives,  colours or fragrance and is high in vitamins, natural plant oils and botanicals. It’s a scientific fact that we absorb a significant amount of chemicals that we apply onto our skin and with 1/3 of personal care products containing harmful chemicals such as carcinogenic substances it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning to healthier alternatives.

So I decided to strip away the glossy magazine models and the big advertising bill boards and put together a very simple photo shoot of our own before and after. No fancy photography or air brushing techniques, just a simple digital camera, a willing model and a bottle of our best selling Vani T Bronzing Custard. As a regular user of Vani T myself I wanted to show you just how good this stuff is. Because it’s made from natural ingredients it’s kind to the skin and is also a great moisturiser making your skin feel soft and smooth, it even smells nice too!

I applied a small amount of Vani T Bronzing Custard (about the size of a walnut) each day for three days on one forearm but not the other to show the gradual build up of colour and as you can see after only three days a lovely natural looking bronze tan has developed. It’s really easy to apply and you only need a small amount for each application so one bottle goes a long way.  It doesn’t streak or turn orange like a lot of other self tanning lotions can do and it doesn’t wear off on clothes either. I remember once using a particular false tan which turned my whole bathroom orange, suffice to said I didn’t use that one again. I’ve tried many different brands over the years both natural and not so natural and I can honestly say that I will be sticking with Vani T.  It’s natural, it smells nice, feels good and gives a great all over bronze tan, what more could I ask for.

So here goes…….


No no this won’t do, I think these pale limbs need a bit of colour would you agree.

Before application


















Ok this is a bit better, you can already see a dash of colour but I think a little more is needed.

24hr after applying Vani T Bronzing Custard



















Much better don’t you think. After only a couple of days a lovely tan to show off,  but if you want to go darker…

48 hrs after applying Vani T Bronzing Custard




















Just an extra day is needed. Three days of application gives a great bronze tan which will last and you only need to top up every 2-3 days to maintain the colour.

72hrs after applying Vani T Bronzing Custard


















I think thats a success considering my camera skills are not brilliant, please accept my apologies to all those experienced photographers out there.  If you would like to try Vani T Bronzing Custard or Mist for yourself  you can buy it direct from our shop at www.thegreenstop.co.uk or alternatively by phone on 0844 879 3580.
