I will simply cut to the chase with this Australian Gold Dark Tanning Accelerator lotion. It will get your skin looking golden and bronzed without a doubt and in a considerably short time. Whether you choose to lie out on the tanning bed for a couple minutes or pass the time sunbathing, this tanning accelerator will work after just one use to elevate your skin tone to a darkened natural color.

This lotion has some great moisture-filled ingredients such as olive oil, sunflower seed oil, tea tree leaf oil, aloe leaf extract along with vitamins A and E. This creates a rich creamy mixture that goes on smooth and leaves your skin feeling soft and conditioned.

Australian Gold Cheeky Brown Accelerator Plus Bronzer

They were really going for a new look with the Australian Gold Cheeky Brown Accelerator – the bottle is certainly popping! Besides the bells and whistles though, you can count on some pretty good tanning results when using this lotion. First off, there are some bronzing agents that tint your skin upon application, however, the color is very faint.

Nonetheless, this lotion can accelerate your tan significantly — expect to see some changes in your skin color after about 30 minutes in the tanning bed, I wouldn’t recommend more than that per session. To darken up even further simply do a couple more sessions with a 2-day break in between. In my experience, I was able to achieve a dark, sun kissed tan after two 30 minutes sessions in the tanning bed and similar results after one 45 minutes session in the sun and I was pleased with both outcomes – the color looked great!

  • Delivers a sun kissed complexion if used right
  • Contains native Australian oils plus vitamins A and E for the ultimate skin-hydrating effects
  • Great fragrance
  • Takes a bit of patience and time to see enhanced results
  • Works best if you have already acquired a base tan
  • It has a girly fruity bubble gum scent most guys dislike

  • The No. 1 dark tanning lotion Now with Bronzer!
  • Native Australian oils, Vitamins A and E create a skin-hydrating formula for a maximum tanning experience.

Australian Gold Accelerator Extreme

Now if you want to really get the ball rolling, then you need to try this version of the Accelerator Extreme with Intense DHA Bronzer. You’ve got to hand it to the makers of the Australian Gold products; they’ve got it all figured out. 

This accelerator lotion is highly potent with natural bronzers and Dihydroxyacetone, which is especially responsible for darkening your skin tone, so you are guaranteed to see a very darkened skin color instantly. Plus with additives such a vitamins A and E, Echinacea and natural Australian oils, it makes your skin feel hydrated and supple and gives you a pretty good sheen to make your overall tan look incredible.

Australian Gold Sinfully Black

This Australian Gold Sinfully Black 15x Deep Dark Bronzing has many great elements to look forward to. There are intense bronzing components to achieve heightened skin color in a relatively short time. The color this lotion delivers can get very dark so you may want to closely monitor the tanning process while you’re in the tanning bed so that it doesn’t darken your complexion to an unnatural shade.

It has a good silky texture and goes on easy, partly since it’s loaded with some very nourishing ingredients. It contains a blend of vitamins along with sunflower, hemp seed, and Kukui nut oils plus caramel and walnut extracts that will undoubtedly soften and smoothen your skin. Try to apply evenly and massage into your skin in deep circular motions and you will be pleased with how your tan turns out.

Australian Gold Gelee

The Gelee is a very thick gel-like lotion with high effecting hydrating properties beyond compare to its other Australian Gold counterparts. Along with its signature hemp seed oil component, there are also vitamins A and E and moisturizing oils such as olive oil and tea tree oil that conditions and moisturizes your skin to procure a radiant, youthful glow. It is a non-sticky formula that applies very well, leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean, however, it takes a longer time to dry.

It takes some time for you to arrive at a tan but when you do, you will obtain a natural looking and bronzed skin tone. I have had better results using the Gelee in the tanning bed than outdoors with not just the tan it gives me but the overall experience. If you choose to use in the sun however, you may want to add a bit of sunscreen protection after applying this lotion.

  • Produces a natural looking bronzed complexion
  • There is no color transfer
  • Has a nice scent of Cocoa Dreams
  • Takes a long time to develop your tan
  • The fragrance is light and dissipates within a short time

  • Moisturizes like a lotion
  • Clean feel of a gel

Australian Gold Dark Tanning Accelerator

If you’re not into tanning beds then this Gold Dark Tanning Accelerator is the perfect solution. I recommend going for products that are solely made for a purpose than one that has a dual purpose so that you achieve the best it has to offer.

 This Tanning Accelerator does not compromise to give you a healthy and good-looking tan all while moisturizing and protecting your skin to the maximum degree. It stimulates melanin production to heighten your complexion to a golden bronze color in a moderate yet effective pace so that you experience a natural pigmentation process. 

With the added blends of native Australian oils along with a bunch of vitamins and nutrients geared towards moistening and conditioning your skin, you are bound to have a flawless looking sheen to go with your tan.

  • Gives you a healthy looking bronzed tan
  • Makes your skin feel silky and smooth
  • Has a fresh tropical scent
  • May stain your clothing and some types of surfaces
  • Does not contain any UV SPF protection
  • Some may find the tanning process a bit too slow for their liking

Australian Gold Dark Tanning Oil Intensifier

This Tanning Oil Intensifier does a brilliant job at not only intensifying your color during tanning but also allows you to hold your tan for several days. The oil-based solution also makes it considerably water resistant, giving you consistent coverage for longer periods of time if you happen to be in and out of water a lot. Also, you can opt to use it in the tanning bed, but I wouldn’t recommend this idea; with any oil-form tanning product, it is likely to make you burn easily under direct and excessive heat, and you are more likely to bake your skin which ultimately causes a significant amount of topical damage.

This Dark Tanning Oil Intensifier is actually clear in color, has medium consistency and texture and is filled with lots of nourishing ingredients such as sunflower seed oil, carrot root extract, carrot seed oil, banana fruit extract, aloe leaf extract, tea tree leaf oil and soybean oil to provide various antioxidant benefits and moisturizing effects.

  • Makes your tan deeper and richer in color
  • Gives you lasting color for up to one week
  • Doubles as a good moisturizer
  • There were several reported cases of persons who broke out in a rash, so not advised for sensitive skin users
  • May feel stickier and heavier on the skin than lotion based tanning products
  • Difficult to wash off after tanning

  • Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection
  • Oil-free formula
  • Native Australian Acacia Extract provides antioxidant benefits
  • Water Resistant - 80 minutes
  • Australian Gold signature fragrance

Australian Gold Velocity

There is really nothing bad to say about this Australian Gold Dark Tanning Formula Velocity and Biosine Complex. The lotion is silky, goes on smooth and gives great coverage. It smells awesome especially while applying and the best feature of them all is how effective it is to get your skin darkened and sun kissed in rapid time. 

This is one of the premium tanning formulas in the Australian Gold line, there are higher concentrations of pigmenting elements to darken your skin color to the maximum intensity possible. The Biosine complex is also designed to carry nutrients, moisturizers, and protectants to keep skin hydrated and conditioned for the optimum results.

  • Makes your skin quite dark with minimal use
  • Tans your skin very quickly
  • Can be used for indoor and outdoor tanning
  • Has a hefty price tag
  • May get messy when applying
Overview
  • Australian Gold Velocity provides the fastest tan in history! .
  • This premium tanning lotion delivers superb tanning intensity which allows your natural pigmentation process to tan as dark as nature allows
  • Contains special ingredients panthenol, aloe, and Vitamin E. For indoor/outdoor tanning

Australian Gold Rapid Tanning Intensifier

This Australian Gold Rapid Tanning Intensifier Lotion has very similar effects as the Oil Intensifier version. It does a pretty good job at deepening your complexion quickly so that you don’t have to spend a long time tanning. The difference is the lotion applies easier and leaves your skin feeling unclogged and fresh as well as soft and supple. 

The lotion is white in color but absorbs very well, however, it isn’t as water resistant as the Oil-based Tanning Intensifier, so it requires quite a bit of reapplying if you intend on getting wet. Try to keep your tanning to a minimum, as there is no sunscreen protection. But a pretty good idea is to use with a sunblock lotion. I would recommend applying the sunblock after you have applied this Intensifier lotion and even a little time after you have begun tanning.

  • Serves as a rapid tan intensifier
  • Has a great fruity smell
  • Lightweight moisturizer leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth
  • No sunscreen
  • Not water resistant
  • Not much staying power for your tan
Overview
  • Rapid tan intensifier.
  • No sunscreen.

Australian Gold Bronzing Dry Oil Spray Intensifier

Dry oil sprays are amongst the easiest products to apply, for that reason; this Australian Gold Bronzing Dry Oil Spray Intensifier is one of my favs. It is a super lightweight solution that looks like a mist as it dispenses from the spray pump bottle and requires little rubbing-in, however you will need to spray an excessive amount to get proper coverage and reapply frequently to reap the full benefits of its tanning capacity.

There are some very effective and healthy ingredients to obtain soft feeling skin, some of which are – carrot root extract, carrot seed oil, banana fruit extract, aloe leaf juice, tea tree leaf oil, Panthenol and black walnut shell extract to name a few. These ingredients combine with Australian Gold’s color boost technology to maximize your tan to achieve deep dark results as well as hydrate your skin so that it feels smooth with every use.

  • Delivers a deep, dark color
  • Applies effortlessly
  • Leaves your skin feeling non sticky and smooth
  • Not water resistant
  • Not much moisturizing effects
  • The bottle doesn’t last very long since you have to use a lot
