GlowDry: Gets Rid of Smelly, Sticky Fake Tan INSTANTLY

By Carly @livelavishlyblog

Along with the rest of the country, I love fake tan! But I hate the smell and feel of it just as much, and don’t get me started on my lovely white bed clothes 🙁 Imagine there was a product that masks the smell, mattifies the stickiness and protects your clothes… instantly! Well there is… GLOWDRY!

What is GlowDry?

The award winning product GlowDry was established by an Irish woman living in Perth. Read about her story here. After years in the spray tanning business, Fi has created this absolute hero of a product to address all of our pain points.

It is an illuminating body powder that dries tan instantly, leaving you with dry, shimmering, silky skin that actually smells nice! It is incredible and I would love if it was my idea :p

What’s the Formula like?

The formula is a finely milled powder, nude in colour, with a really subtle shimmer and smell.

It contains just 4 natural and organic ingredients (few ingredients is always a good sign of a quality product).

Most importantly, GlowDry is:

  • TALC FREE

  • CRUELTY FREE
  • VEGAN FRIENDLY
  • NUT FREE
  • PARABEN FREE
  • TITANIUM DIOXIDE FREE
  • CHEMICAL FREE
  • FILLER FREE
  • PRESERVATIVE FREE
  • NON TOXIC

What Products are Available?

Currently, there are 2 types of products available to purchase:The Starter Kit and The Bestie.

The GlowDry Starter Kitcomes with a 60g powder pot and a large luxe body brush, which is a total games changer.

It is the softest, fluffiest, biggest brush I own and it’s the perfect companion for such a finely milled powder.

With this, the powder applies like a dust and therefore you just need a small amount of product. Trust me, a little goes a long way. Once it runs out, you don’t have to buy a new tub and brush, you can just refill it! Which brings me to THE BESTIE.

The Bestie is a 150g packet of powder that refills the pot about 2 and a bit times.

How Do I Use GlowDry?

Applying GlowDry is honestly foolproof. Here are my application tips:

  1. Wait 5 minutes after applying your tan
  2. Using the luxe brush from The Starter Kit, very lightly dip the tip of the brush into the powder pot (you don’t need much!). This brush is so soft so don’t worry about it effecting your freshly applied tan!
  3. Tap the excess product into the lid
  4. Dust everywhere that you’ve applied tan
  5. Get dressed and go about your day… you’re done!

How Long Does GlowDry Last?

With the 60g powder pot in The Starter Kit, you should get about 15 to 20 full body applications. With 150g of product The Bestie should get you roughly 30 to 40 full body applications. So let’s do the math. I personally do my tan about once a month. That means The Starter Kit should last me over a year and The Bestie about another 2 years! When you look at it like that, they are so worth the money!

How Much is GlowDry & Where can I Buy?

The Starter Kit (60g powder pot and luxe brush) costs 50 Australian Dollars which, at the time of writing this post, is about €30. The Bestie costs 69 Australian Dollars which is roughly €42.

If you sign up for the newsletter on their site you will get 10% off and I recommend following GlowDry on Instagram because they are very kind with the discount codes. Shipping to Ireland takes about 7 to 14 business days (it’s worth the wait :))

I hope you found that helpful and you’re as delighted as I am that there is a product that tackles all of those things we HATE about fake tan!

Thanks for reading,
