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 Elle Effect’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.

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!
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.
I've tried a number of tan removers and The Wash is honestly the holy-grail for removing tan as well as prepping the skin for your new application! The formula works so well with the Elle Effect tan - it's a must have.
The most tedious and frustrating part of fake tanning is the process of removing the old tan, nothing ever gets it all off…. until now. The Wash is a shower essential and game changer for weekly fake tanners. In one quick (and hydrating) scrub and my skin is completely restored to its natural shade while feeling moisturised and smooth, ready for the next application.
I no longer dread the pre-tan exfoliation, for two reasons: ELLE EFFECT tan doesn't go patchy, it fades. But to start fresh, fresh between tans - this baby is a delicious in shower treat, that smells divine and is gentle on the skin.
