Self tanners have come a long way from making you look like an oompa loompa. But since I prefer a natural look, I still usually steer clear of them out of fear of a mishap.
Bali Body Self Tanning Mousse
This mousse has chamomile extract, coffee seed extract and pomegranate extract for glowing skin. It's conveniently fast drying.
I'm naturally quite fair, but the self tanning mousse gives me a glow that never looks fake or orange. The product doesn't have that lasting, cloying self tanner scent either—you know the one I'm talking about. It's hard to tell exactly how long the tan lasts because it fades out so naturally, but I'd say you can expect it to stick around for up to a week.
The instructions on the bottle are easy to follow, and as long as you buff the product in thoroughly, the application is fool-proof. Try the tools below to help you with this.
