Loving the Skin You’re in with Luna Bronze

We’re so excited to chat with the glow-getting besties behind tanning mecca Luna Bronze, on staying #unfiltered and supporting friends through the bad times and the good.

At Libra, we love celebrating women, cheering them on as they live their best lives. In our blog series #womenforwomen, we’re shining the spotlight on Australian and New Zealand boss ladies who truly inspire us, in life and biz! Why? Because we think women are a force to be reckoned with – we know the only time a woman is helpless is when her nail polish is drying.

Luna Bronze founders Maddy and Rhi are the ultimate glow-getters, changing up the self-tanning game as we know it. These girls implore us to love, protect and feel hella confident in the skin we’re in, promoting self-worshipping over sun-worshipping. But the reason they girls felt inspired to bring Luna Bronze to life traces back to a more personal turning point.

“Luna Bronze was actually created after I had a run in with a form of skin cancer. It was what woke me up to the dangers of sun tanning and UV exposure, and made me search for a natural, sunless tanning product that fitted nicely into my daily beauty routine,” Maddy recalls.


Rhi and Maddy had a lightbulb moment. They’d stumbled across an opportunity to create a kick-ass, organic self-tanner (that also looks mighty fine in your beauty stash). But before launching into the beauty biz, the pair came from totally different backgrounds, proving that it’s never too ambitious to run with a great idea.

“We’re new to the skincare game, myself having come from a finance and insurance background and Rhi as an Executive Assistant in the architecture industry,” Maddy says.

“We ensured that what we lack in scientific know-how is supported by an experienced team of qualified professionals who bring our product briefs (and dreams) to reality,” adds Rhi.

We love that the girls have ensured Luna Bronze is Australian-made, just like our pads and tampons! So, before commencing a shopping spree, we were desperate to know what Rhi and Maddy’s fave products are from their range.

For Maddy, it’s a close tie between the debut Glow Gradual Tanning Moisturiser and the Eclipse Tanning Mousse.
