Want a lovely glow without the carcinogens? Unfortunately, this often means exposing your bod to an expensive spray tanning company and ending up in Oompa Loompa territory. What’s a girl to do? Simple – tan in the privacy of your own home!
“But Cailin, won’t self tanners make me splotchy and orange?” Some, dear readers, but not all. While self tanners are famous for uneven application, abhorrent smells and unnatural hues, I’ve found one that solves all those problems: Beautisol Self-Tanning Mousse.
This self-tanner sets itself apart in a few ways. First and most unique is the self tanning mitt it comes with for application. Basically you slap this baby on like an oven mitt and slather yourself from bottom to top with the tinted tanner. The tint makes seeing where you’ve gone easy, and you can use the glove to blend your own lines.
The scent of this product is actually quite pleasant – think vanilla-citrus – and the resulting color is all bronze and no orange. Fantan-stic!
As with any self tanner, you’ll want to wait 6-8 hours after applying to shower, so the best time to apply is a bit before bed. I also recommend moisturizing your hands and feet to avoid too-deep shades in those areas that over-absorb tanner.
