The Wash
11 reviews

Because the best tan is a prepped tan.

The Wash is a unique body cleanser-meets-tan-remover that utilises a gentle oil-based formula to break down old colour without the use of harmful or irritating ingredients. Unlike other foam-based tan removers that work by excessively exfoliating the skin, The Wash leaves limbs soft and moisturised. (Fun fact: It’s also free from alcohol, fragrance, gluten, parabens and sulphates; is hypoallergenic; is not tested on animals and is vegan.)

The lush formula contains a trio of nourishing oils - coconut, olive and macadamia - to cleanse and condition as well as help break down tan, plus a mild exfoliant to whisk away dead skin cells. 

For best results, apply to ELEFFECT’s new Exfoliating Mitt and, using circular motions, massage into wet skin until a light foam forms, then rinse. Use 2 hours before a new tan application.

Game Changer

My love of a regular spray tan means I never look forward to the scrub off … until now. This product is the holy grail of arm saving scrubbing. It just works. And makes my skin feel amazing. Get it. You’ll wonder how you ever did tanning without it.

Soft going onto the skin and lathers up very well.

Love The Wash!!!

I started using Elle Effect tan about a year ago and was blown away by the smell, application, consistency and colour of the tan. It was AMAZING. Naturally, I was curious to try other products to see if I could find some new favourites. After using The Wash for the first time I noticed all my old tan was easily removed and my skin felt so soft. Again, mind blown. The product lasts for ages and is so fast at removing a bad or old tan. I highly recommend it!

Luxe Value for Money

Easy to use in the shower and makes it much easier than using the bar of soap I used to use to remove my tan.
