      This worked great the first time, then it was no longer a mouse but a drippy liquid that went all over me and the floor. I took it back for a refund.

        Comments about ULTA Instant Bronze Sunless Tanning Mousse:

        I normally buy more prestigious brands, but this was my first time trying self tanner so I wanted something cheap in case I hated self tanning, and I must say this stuff is great! I used to have a deep tan and this looks just as natural. It lasts about 4-5 days before I started to notice it disappearing, which it naturally fades, not splotchy. The second time using it I applied the Bronze Glow daily moisture lotion over it and it lasted longer.

            Being a first time sunless tan user I was a little skeptical, but this stuff is great. It gives me great color, easy to apply, smells like coconuts and has a decent price.

            Comments about ULTA Instant Bronze Sunless Tanning Mousse:

            I popped into Ulta last night to buy a self tanner for an upcoming night out. I am not an experienced self tanner and this is the first time I have bought some in years. This was so easy to use. I exfoliated beforehand with a homemade salt scrub but did not moisturize since the scrub had avocado oil in it. I applied this with the mitt after I had dried off, and it was so easy to see where I had applied it. You have to be fast at rubbing it in, though, because it dries quickly. I slept in my original coat before showering it off the next morning, and I can definitely see a difference. I'm not as tan as I want to be yet, but the difference is noticeable to others. My only gripe is the smell; it smells lovely but it's a little strong, and I was sneezing for a while after I put this on. Also, definitely be careful when cleaning the mitts after use: I think a little water got on my wrist (right after I had applied) when doing so and there's a couple tiny streaks there, but other than that it looks fantastic!

                              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.

                            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?

                              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.

                            Can I wait longer than 4 hours to shower? If I sleep in it will it over develop?

                              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.
