I have ordered MyTan Bronze from this website. Has anyone tried it and does it work? It says it has beta-carotene and not canthanxantin, which was important for me because I've heard the latter can cause crystals to appear in your eyes (canthaxantin retinopathy) but that Beta Carotene is safe.

The company that makes MyTan Bronze says they are called BLife and lists and Irish address and contact details on their website. Is this a legitimate company?

I know some will say I should try fake tan but I have combination skin on my face so it ends up blotchy, muddy and flakey. I'd like to hear whether you or a friend tried tanning pills, whether they worked, and what the name of the pills was if you have it so I will know which to avoid and which might work.

I used to be white now I'm neon. I did overdose though.


No it won't work.

I read something about them before. They turn you a weird looking colour apparently. More oranage than a brown colour.
Never knowingly seen anyone who used them.
I presume you're female. What is the obsession with fake tan?

Nope I'm male. I'm not able to tan naturally.

Did he use MyTan Bronze or some other make? I'd like to know which ones work and which don't.

Drink mass quantities of Sunny D, has the same effect.

None work, you'll look ridiculous.
Just wait till you're away in a hot country to get a tan!

Beta-carotene in high quantities is not safe. It is fat-soluble and therefore cannot be discreted (ahem) in the usual way, with the tendency to build up in fatty tissues, especially the liver. I don't like the sound of the other 'natural' ingredients either. In any case, not enough studies have been conducted to ensure either the safety or the efficacy of such supplements. Why would you want to be a guinea-pig?! Throw the damn pills in the bin and embrace your outer pastiness!!

I don't have personal experience with tanning pills but:

1. You're unlikely to turn tanned or brown, in fact as far as I know, the paler you are starting out, the more it looks like orange/yellow. Basically you can end up looking like you have a liver disease rather than a lot of holidays.

2. You shouldn't have been putting the fake tan on your face anyway. You're supposed to tan your body and use bronzer makeup to match your face to your body.
