How to use

Get the best tan you can by first prepping your skin. By this we mean exfoliating and moisturising any dry patches before tanning, this will give you an even tan and glow! 

Pump the mousse directly onto a tanning mitt and apply to the skin in sweeping motions, making sure you cover all areas – you’ll see the product as you rub it over your skin, which makes this part much easier! Use it sparingly on your elbows, hands, knees, wrists and face.

The tan will develop in 2 hours, after which you rinse off the excess and pat your skin dry. If you want a darker tan, apply another layer.

You must use a mitt to apply this product, not bare hands.

 "I have used countless fake tans over the years but none compare to this tan!

It is flawless! It’s so easy to apply and the end result looks so natural!

The lack of sunshine has been draining this summer but Lucy Bee has kept me bronzed and glowing!"

What colour will I go?
It really depends on your skin type. The more Mousse you use, the darker the tan. The beauty of self-tanning is that you can control how much you apply to your skin, and therefore the depth of the tan. We've added a few functional ingredients to gain a natural looking colour. The key one is erythrulose, a natural keto-sugar which takes part in Maillard’s reaction and leads to the formation of brownish polymers. It balances out the orange tones created by DHA (a colour additive), giving a deep, even and natural long-lasting tan.

Can I use Naturally Glowing Self-Tan Mousse on my face as well as body?

Yes you can, we’d recommend applying a small amount to the face. If you’d prefer to be more in control of your tan, then we’d recommend using our Self-Tan drops. With these you can use less drops for a little glow or add more for a deeper tan.

Will the tan wash off in the shower?
The Naturally Glowing Self-Tan Mousse isn’t a wash-off tan. Instead, your tan will slowly wear off over a few days – the exact number of days depends on your cleansing/bathing routine, your skin type and your own individual cellular renewal. Generally speaking, the tan will last about 5 days.

How long will my tan last?

Generally, it will last about 5 days, but it really depends on a number of things, such as: your exfoliating routine; your skin type; and your individual cellular renewal – the older you are, the longer the cell turnover.

Hi Neil, yes our Tan Mousse has a guide colour when it is applied, which allows you to see where the tan has been applied. Our Tan Drops are a colourless application (with no guide colour) and can be mixed with your favourite moisturiser, I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please let us know.
