              A skin patch test should be undertaken prior to incorporating any new skincare product into your routine.

              Patch Test - Before adding any new skincare products to your routine it is best practice to always do a patch test first. Apply TANU on an unobtrusive area of skin, under your chin, or the inside of your wrist. Wait 24 hours, and if there's no reaction, try the product on your face. Don't add any other skincare products to your routine until you've gone a full week without a reaction. This helps to ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. If irritation occurs please discontinue use.

              Beautiful oil

              Love all about this serum! Everything what is written about it above is true! My skin loved it: was glowing, well hydrated and calmed.

              The perfect serum

              I was already amazed by the previous version, so I had to try Tanu v.2. How could the perfect serum made more perfect? The smell and the texture are still the same, earthy, not overwhelming but calming and pleasant. It maintains hydration the whole day and gives an incredible glow, it penetrates immediately without leaving a greasy finish. It’s still perfect, I think for every skin type, for my aging normal, sometimes dry skin it is. Hope to try Luca soon!

              Harnessing the power of Mother Nature

              I don’t think enough praise can be said regarding this product. Am a 48 year old male who has always looked after myself both physically and mentally. Skin care products have been something that I have over the years like most people used in some shape or form. This TANU serum for me is my pot of gold when it comes to face care. The ingredients list is mother nature’s pearls all bought together by the lovely Gabrielle. I came across this product not long into when Cov 19 turned up and it has and always will be my go to face treatment. Not only do you purchase this amazing serum but you can also know that Gabrielle has you also covered regarding the carbon foot print along with recyclable packing. Thank you G.

              Beyond Perfection

              Wow, Tanu is truly a phenomenal piece of skincare brilliance. Tanu slows me down, rather than layering multiple products I’ve learnt to slow down & take my time with just a few drops of Tanu. I cannot comprehend the science behind the ingredients but the result is truly perfection - the scent, the colour, the texture, & the results. My skin is healthier than it has ever been & my wrinkles have softened. I never want to be without this gorgeous piece of skincare perfection..
