First things first...I am not a fake tan pro. I have not tried all the products on the market and I have only been using a sunless tanning products for the last few years. I have had lots of requests for a cruelty free tanning mousse, but I have been holding out for one that doesn't come in a plastic bottle - here it is!

I followed the instructions step by step on this one, and if there's one thing I would add, I would recommend you moisturise your elbows, knees, ankles and feet before you use the ed & i Tanning Mousse.

This product has been designed to be used with a mitt (and you should definitely use a mitt), after shower routine that includes the ed & i Dry Body Scrub as prep. I apply two layers of the tan 15 minutes apart to achieve the desired depth of tan (which I wouldn't say was "dark").

I apply the tan in the morning and stay home for the day - I feel like I smell like tan all day, so if you're the sort of person who usually applies tan in the morning and pops out for the day, I would do a test run on a day you're staying at home so you can assess the scent for yourself.

The mousse is more orange than I expected and the first time I used the product I felt a wave of panic, I also feel that the tan looks orange after it develops BUT the orange washes off in the shower. I would not recommend heading out to a pool party without having a shower (you have been warned).

The official time frames are below, but please try the product and see what works best for you;

  • For a light tan, wash off after 1 hour
  • For a medium to dark tan, leave for up to 4 hours
  • For an even deeper tan, re-apply a second coat 15 minutes after your initial application. Leave on your skin for at least 6 hours

I have not done the sheet test with this product, so if you're a tan at night kinda gal, who then pops the sheets in the wash the next morning please proceed with caution (and report back if you would?), I do not want to be held responsible for ruining your white Egyptian cotton 1000 thread count sheets on your California King Bed.

You can follow your post tan shower with the ed & i Body Oil or ed & i Body Moisturiser so you finish the day (or start the day) smelling like chocolate mousse. Be warned that you might find yourself sniffing your arm in the office...
