      I love the color of this tanner. It is easy to apply and has never left streaks or patches. Overall it is one of my favorite tanners, even when compared with more expensive options.

          Comments about ULTA Instant Bronze Sunless Tanning Mousse:

          I tried out this product because I love to self tan but it can get expensive! I absolutely loved it! I am fair to medium skin tone and this product was perfect. It left my skin tan but not overly tan. It just looks like I went outside and went swimming for an hour or something. That also could be a con because if I wanted more of a tan I would probably have to apply it again the next day or buy a different product.

          I think ultra should come out with different shades like all the other tanning products put there. After I tanned I put on ultras gradual tan moisturizer and so far so good! I didn't experience any streaks like people said because I really took my time to blend. It only got a bit dark on my knees and ankles but I have expeienced that no matter what I do. Its just what you risk when you self tan. Overall, I loved it!

            I have such a love/hate relationship with this product. The packaging is absolutely horrendous. The pump works only the first or second time you use it. The formula itself is great, which is what is frustrating. It gives such a natural brown shade, but I can never get a perfect application. Even with a mitt and tons of blending, I still end up with streaks on my arms.

            I can say this smells good. It's lightweight and not greasy. However the pump basically never works. It will pump a very weak and watery substance out. Ge rally it just leaks the dark liquid all over. It does leave a nice color that's not orange. Too bad this pump bottle is terrible and doesn't work. Not sure if I will buy it again.

              So at first when I started using this I would pump out the mouse onto my mit, but I found something that works way better for me and will keep me purchasing this. Now I just take off the cap, cover the top of the bottle with my mit and get some of the liquid on my glove and just put the self tanner on that way... I feel like it goes on so much better as the liquid than the mouse!

                  A:

                  Avoid contact with water for at least four hours for color to fully develop. After color has fully developed, your tan should last 3-5 days typically, depending on how often you bathe and/or exfoliate your skin. You can certainly apply sunscreen over top, we definitely recommend it! Allow the mousse a couple minutes to fully dry on your skin prior to SPF application. It is not harmful to your skin to use sunless tanning products, but please keep in mind that most sunless tanning products, including this one, do not provide sun protection, so it is always best to wear SPF over top to keep skin safe from sun damage & healthy!

                  A:

                  We recommend waiting at least 4 hours for color to fully develop from your initial application before reapplication to achieve a deeper tan. Apply 1 to 2 times per week to maintain your tan. ULTA Instant Bronze Sunless Tanning Mousse provides a natural, non-orangey tan.

              • Q:

                When you shower after allowing the product to develop, do you just rinse it off or take a full on shower? Also, does it become splotchy after one shower/shave?

                  A:

                  Avoid contact with water for at least four hours for color to fully develop. Taking a full shower is optional. Waiting longer than 4 hours will not cause any adverse effect, so you can certainly wait until your normal shower time. As long as the Instant Bronze Sunless Tanning Mousse was applied evenly (we recommend using the Sunless Mitt Item #: 2200069), you'll see an even, streak-free tan after showering/shaving.

                  A:

                  The processing time is 4 hours; any residue is rinsed off with the shower. Swimming should be fine as long as you follow application directions. Always prep skin by exfoliating, and apply mousse with the ULTA Mitt (Item #: 2200069) applicator for a smooth, even application.

                1 answer

                • Staff Expert

                  A:

                  It is safe for use on the face; however, care must be taken to avoid the eye area. For best results, gently exfoliate and apply a moisturizer first, then apply the product on high-tan areas (top of nose and cheek bones with a bit on chin and forehead) and gently blend out to the hair line and down to the décolleté with a mitt (we suggest ULTA Bronze Glow Sunless Tan Applicator Mitt For Face, Item #: 2267340) for even, streak-free application.

                  The product can also be mixed with facial moisturizer to reduce the depth of color. Use very little product and gently build the tan over time. The deep, rich color of the formula may be too dark for the facial area if applied too heavily. The trick is in applying the right amount to the correct areas and blending out to create the look of a natural tan.

                  A:

                  Please note that in order for full color to develop, it is best to wait at least 4 hours before you shower. There is no risk for the color to over-develop; however, we recommend that you allow 1-2 minutes before getting dressed and/or going to bed to prevent color transfer onto clothing and/or sheets.
