It’s that time of year where our sun kissed glows fade away and we become (gasp) pale. When I need a quick tan for an event or vacation I like to use self tanning mousse and lotions. It’s a fantastic alternative to UV tanning, which if you didn’t already know, is horrible for your skin and can cause wrinkles – fast! I recently received a This Is Feel Glowing self tanning mousse that includes is a applicator to achieve that smooth finish we all desire.
Self tanners can easily streak and look orangey so I’m going to share with you a little trick I’ve learned. Make sure you exfoliate and shave prior to applying. I also like to use lotion before putting on the tanner and then apply evenly one section at a time. This lets you smooth out any lines while your skin soaks it in. Don’t forget to wash your hands after, especially if you don’t use the applicator!
After using the Glowing mousse I had amazing results, I’m not orangey and have a natural looking bronze. The tan really set in throughout the day (I applied in the morning) and actually smelt like a light perfume instead of the typical coconut scent. I’m intrigued to try more of this new company’s beauty products.
