Our latest innovation, Tanning Water is the ultimate in lightweight self-tan formulas that glides on from water-to-foam. A tanning all-rounder, as well as containing our signature tanning ingredients, this hydrating water is packed with hydrating Passion Flower. Fast-drying and with a non-transfer bonus, the colour pay off adapts to suit your skin tone and is buildable so you can create a glow up that is all about you. Forget about filters: get sun-drenched, dressed, and ready to do you in style.

Why Fake Bake Tanning Water is a Harknett Must-Have? 

Our Global Creative Consultant James Harknett says,

 “This little self-tanning beauty is the perfect blend for more experienced tanners who want to get bronzed, and go. The formula is so light and suits all skin types. Tanning Water is the type of tan you always want on standby: you simply reach for the bottle, apply, and if you use over consecutive nights, you can go from golden glow to just-got-back from Puerto Portals in no time.”

    Great product, easy to apply as it comes out as a moose and the end colour is lovely deduction of fifth star as it’s clear when you apply it so you see where you’ve put it.

    Tanning Water

    Posted by Tracey on 7th Jul 2020

    This is my new favourite tanner. The Mitt makes Tanning Water easy to apply and it dries almost instantly, making it a great timesaver. It smells great and the colour develops really quickly. I have very pale skin and this still manages to look like a natural tan.
