Ferne McCann talks new tanning range

TOWIE cast member Ferne McCann has launched a range of tanning products under new brand Ferne Beauty.

Each product in the seven-strong line up has been developed to give a luxe finish with easy, fuss-free application. There are two variants of classic self tan – Deep Glow and Natural Glow, both in either lotion or mousse formats. There is also Express Lotion and Express Mousse in the range, to develop a natural to deep glow in 1-4 hours, depending on when the client chooses to wash off the product.

All products contain collagen, vitamin E and argan oil extracts to help firm and enhance the skin’s appearance, while a fresh and fruity scent of pear, peony and bergamot add to the tanning experience. The range claims to be fast drying without streaking or leaving behind a sticky feel, and a tanning mitt is also available to help with application. We spoke to Ferne to get the low down on the range. 

What did you think was missing from the self tans currently on the market? 

A no fuss, easy to use product that has a unique, fresh scent without leaving a lingering “fake tan smell”. The product is really high quality whilst still having that luxurious and feminine feel to it.

Will there be salon spray tans too?

We will be offering spray tan solutions in both our express and classic ranges in the future.

How did you arrive at the pear, peony and bergamot scent? 

I worked closely with a specialist perfumery chemist to achieve the right combination of ingredients and actives. The pear, peony and bergamot scents to me were unique and sophisticated, which is exactly what I envisioned, having become used to using unpleasant smelling tans in the past. I also left the scent on my skin and watched how the smell developed overtime and it just smelt amazing.

Why did you want to include vitamin E, argan oil and collagen in the formula?

The combination of vitamin E, argan oil and collagen brightens, hydrates and firms skin. Having used faux tan for years it was essential that I made sure the formula keeps skin hydrated but also enhances, and I think the firming effect of collagen really makes the product stand out.

Which product is your favourite? 

My favourite is the Ferne Beauty Express Tan Mousse – it’s amazing for on the go, so that I can pop on a cute outfit in the day and still have a natural glow into the evening. 


The range is on Ferne Beauty now, and will soon be available to salons.
