Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn. Test skin sensitivity by applying a small amount to inside of arm, leave for 5 minutes. If reaction occurs do not use. If signs of irritation appear discontinue use. Do not swallow. Avoid contact with eyes.

      I bought a bottle, tanned one leg and the bottle started to leak color, not mousse. Returned it! Got another bottle got one pump of mousse then it leaked color again. Well this is going back as well!! Never had this issue with St. Tropez

              The pump did not work and it leaked everywhere. We opened the bottle and there was a weird white tape wrapped around the base of where the li was to be used and the tube in the bottle was bent. Would not recommend this at all or ever buy it again.

                Pale skinned girl and this product worked great without making me orange. I bought the mitt for application and it really helps. Highly recommend! As for the pump I just rinse it out each time so that it doesn't clog.(pump water thru it) For the price it doesn't bother me to do so.

                      This product requires the globe for perfect application but who cares. Once on this product is the BOMB!!! Really good starting color and the developed color is warm and not too orange. Really lovely and easy, but don't forget an application glove!!!

                            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!

                            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.

                            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.

                            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.

                            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.

                            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.
