How eco tan helped me heal emotionally


For those of you with chronic illness and for anyone else in between, if you need a little self-confidence pick me up, this is literally the only product you will ever need!!

I’m sure my followers know by now that I am not an advertising company. I pride myself on my youth services, motivational speaking, positive quotes, videos and articles, but never advertising for companies. This is a brand that I felt the responsibility to write about and to share with you as this product has done what no-one else could.
It’s given me back my confidence and has made me feel like my true self again!!
There are no words to describe how amazed I am by these products, but before I explain why I am so excited, let me explain who and what eco tan is! And no, eco tan is not only about tan! It’s about health, positivity, skin, cleansing, awareness, fundraising, tan and much more!

Sonya Driver is the created of eco tan. She was a wife, a mother and a sister. 

“She had the world at her feet and a great sense of self-worth. She had just bought a beach-side block of land with her husband to build their dream house and left her job as an international flight attendant to be a full-time mother”

Sonya’s world came crashing down when her husband suddenly ended their marriage.
She was left alone as a single mother, unemployed and living in a run down house that was planed to be renovated.  Adding to such an overwhelming and hard time in Sonya’s life, her sister was diagnosed with a melanoma. Sonya found strength to begin a new life through demonstrating positivity for her sister and children. Whilst this brave and courageous mother is tying to put the pieces of her life back together she decided to head over and spend two weeks volunteering in East Timor. She spent those two weeks feeding hungry children and comforting unwell locals. 

 “After two weeks living in a desolate village with little food or water, Sonya was distracted from her grim situation at home. Surrounded by people who had nothing, she was able to put her situation in perspective”

Sonya returned to Australia more determined than ever! She felt the urge to make a positive change and support her sister. Her sisters cancerous growth had been cut from her arm, leaving a horrible scar. Still wanting to get a tan without the risk of harmful UV rays, they sought the next best thing. Sonya and her sister began getting regular spray tans together but soon became concerned about the ingredients that they were constantly covering themselves with. Sonya began to research the ingredients used by many different brands, regardless of their claims, she says it only took her a few minutes to decide not to use their products anymore. After all, our skin is our largest organ, and much of what we put on it is absorbed into our bloodstream.

Sonya started buying in samples of cacao, flower essence, chamomile and all things natural and organic and started mixing batches out of her tiny kitchen at home.  In 2011, Eco Tan made Australian history by becoming the first and only tanning manufacturer to be certified organic by the Organic Food Chain under the Australian government.

Since then, eco tan by Sonya has been selling globally, she has created not only tan, but has also created a whole range of products that are not only amazing but are safe to use, organic and never tested on animals!

Props to this amazing mother who remains a true inspiration to many!!

I love that this brand is not only about self profit, this brand was designed from the bottom up. Designed out of growth, motivation, courage, love, care, but what I love most, is that this brand was created to make a difference in this world.
Researching a little more in depth about eco tan I found that Sonya and her brand have partnered up with quite a large variety of organisations to raise money for charities that matter!
They have also recently launched a new product! The Eco By Sonya Driver Hand & Nail Cream in which 100% of their profits/proceeds go to charity. YEP! Not one percent, not ten percent but 100% go to a very worthy cause!


Over the years with battling my health and the changes to my body, skin and hair, I have tried the most expensive products that the market has to offer. These brands promise that they are safe, they promise that they are organic, and they promise to work, but more often than not, these promises are not true.  I ordered the eco tan very little expectations. How can something organic and made out of fruits & oils really work as well as they say? It looked too good to be true. Skeptical is an understatement, however me being me, I ordered it anyway and I’m so glad I did!
The first product I ordered arrived in a well packed box, it was filled with a heap of information about all their products which I loved! But I loved most that it also came with a beautiful positive message on a postcard.

My first product purchase came in a little glass bottle. The Face Tan Water™ and

It smelled f*#%ing amazing!!! 

I watched a YouTube tutorial on how to apply it and so, I used a cotton pad. I dabbed a little of this so-called tan water on the pad and wiped it over my face and neck just like the instructions suggested. I remember thinking to myself, how the hell is this tiny amount going to work! I was feeling frustrated about it and nervous that I would wake up in the morning looking like an idiot. I have never been good at applying tan and I never wanted a super dark one either. I just wanted to feel as though I had make-up on without actually having make up on, you know what I mean? 

That tiny amount I dabbed on a cotton pad and wiped on my face like I would a toner did everything but disappoint me!

I woke up with a subtle natural glow! My skin looked amazing! I was not orange, I didn’t smell, it wasn’t so dark that my face didn’t match my un-tanned body. That tiny cotton pad managed to cover my whole face, neck and chest area! I was so excited that I took selfies and made a before and after picture and sent them to my sister, husband and friends to tell them about it.
Being winter here in the land down under, I am white as f*#% right now, but this tan blended so well that no one could tell that the rest of my body wasn’t tanned at the time! I have been using this product every second day as a top-up and I have noticed my skin changing. My skin is glowing and I am not having breakouts or flaky areas of dry skin. 

But most amazingly, and after embarrassingly spending thousands of dollars on trying different products to help my problematic skin, I am feeling so much more confident than I ever have ever felt before.

I had a hysterectomy due to cancer this year, and my skin has been doing all sorts of random things recently. I have other life long health conditions that effect my skin also but if struggling with accepting a hysterectomy before the age of 30 wasn’t hard enough, I had to deal with my skin going absolutely crazy after the operation too!!

I genuinely can’t believe the difference in my skin since ordering eco tan! I have even been able to leave the house CONFIDENTLY without make up on! This face tan water has not only given me a natural glow but it’s also managed to clear my skin and give me back my confidence.


Even though their face tan water is very reasonably priced, I was also amazed at how little is needed to receive the full benefits! Using so little to completely apply my face, neck and chest area means that this tiny glass bottle has lasted me months!  I love everything about it.  

More than impressed, I ordered more products and not a single one of their products has disappointed me. Eco tan offer a variety of other organic products too, glory oil being one of interest. Only 1 or 2 drops are needed! This miraculous healing night-time treatment oil reduces the appearance of scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.
Glory Oil is quite literally a gift sent from heaven. 

Having health conditions not only has made me sensitive to products but my conditions have also majorly impacted my self-esteem with the constant appearance changes.

eco tan has been a real confidence booster for me and I wanted to share my experience with my followers because I know I have a few followers dealing with different illnesses, and quite frankly, a brand like this should not go unnoticed!

I highly recommend you head over to www.ecotan.com.au
