Faux Glow

Tanning Mousse | Violet | Dark

  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan
  • 100% natural DHA
  • Paraben free
  • Palm oil free
  • Mineral oil free
  • Sulfate free

This violet based tanning mousse will develop into the sort of dark, rich tan you can only achieve naturally from spending a few days beside the pool in Mykonos.

If you have medium to deep skin or just prefer an extra rich tan like you really committed and spent the whole NZ winter aboard a super yacht in The Med, the Violet Ultra Dark Tanning Mousse is for you.

If you have fair or light skin or you're new to tanning, the Medium Self Tanning Mousse is a better option for a more subtle golden, natural looking tan. For a deeper golden Bondi kinda tan, the Dark Self Tanning Mousse should be perfect for you.

If you're a sucker for a coconut scent and you think your skin might need some extra hydration, check out the Coconut Dark Tanning Mousse.

What to expect from your tanning mousse

I have been using the different tanning products for a couple of months now. I've worn the tan during the day and overnight, and here's what I've found;

  • No fake tan smell
  • No orange tone
  • No patchiness or streaking
  • No transfer onto clothing or bedding
  • At least a week of wear
  • Fades evenly and gradually
  • Tan is easily and evenly prolonged using the gradual tan lotion

For best sunless tan results

  1. If you're planning to tan overnight, exfoliate and moisturise the morning of application, if you are going to tan during the day, exfoliate and moisturise the night before - give your elbows, knees and ankles an extra good scrub

  2. Wait at least 24 hours after you wax or shave before you apply your tanning mousse - this will stop you from getting the little black dots in your pores

  3. Don’t use moisturiser, body oil or perfume while waiting for your tan to develop - that's just asking for a patchy tan!

Applying your tanning mousse

  1. Use a mitt if you have one (and if it's your jam) otherwise use your hands - just be sure to have the Jif handy for when you've finished

  2. Use sparingly and carefully on areas like knees, ankles and elbows (#IYKYK)

  3. For a subtle, natural tan take a quick shower (45-60 seconds) in lukewarm water after an hour - no soap, body wash, scrub etc. For a deeper tan, leave on for up to eight hours

Prolonging your tan

  1. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise

  2. If you want to get serious about it use the Gradual Tanning Lotion (it doesn't have a fake tan smell so is safe to wear during the day!)

  3. Don't exfoliate until you're ready to reapply (your tan should last at least a week and fade evenly)

Great soft tan

I was pleasantly surprised by this tan!

I'm a light skinned (yellow undertones) redhead who tans religiously & has trialled MANY a tan in my time.
I applied with a mitt, it applied evenly, dried relatively quickly and wasn't sticky. I wore it for the day at work and while I was bronzed, it didn't look or feel like I was marinating in tan. It lasted about a week, and just faded away. I wore a black dress so can't comment on staining BUT my dress didn't feel gross afterwards so let's call it a win!

Pros: Really nice natural tan colour
Nice formula, easy to apply
Faded softly after a week - no major noticeable patches left to scrub!
Didnt smell for bad while wearing it for the day.
No stickiness!

I didn't like how it smelt when applying - however the smell faded quickly!
It wasn't as dark as I would have hoped - I will trial applying a second coat next time, or just save it for mid winter when I want a natural looking tan 👌🏼
It did last about a week but I think next time I would use a tan extender to keep it's depth.
