      Loved it, the only self tanner that doesn't turn me orange! This is definitely a trial and error product, you have to try it a few times and see what works best for you. The first time I used it I panicked at how orange I was before the 2 hour wash off and then confused when it looked like I got no tan. But, when I woke up the next morning I was tan! It definitely works, just takes time to develop fully! I do not, absolutely do not, recommend sleeping in this during the summer or if you sweat a little while sleeping. I did it once and my whole back (which I sleep on) was patchy and awful. It dries super fast, and the color guard is really helpful to make sure you get every spot. Take your time with this, it's express but you need to take your time applying it. Great product!

      Comments about Loving Tan 2 HR Express Self Tanning Mousse:

      I live in Phoenix, so everyone and their mother have a fantastic tan most months of the year. I've always laid out to get my tan, but recently I've been more aware and scared of getting skin cancer. I loved having a darker shade though, so I figured I would research self tanners that were easy and gave me a great color. I've never purchased any self tanners before, so this was my final pick out of many brands I had researched. (NOTE: I had watched a YouTube video about this, and the woman said that even though the color guard wasn't fully blended in, that would NOT effect the final product once you washed it off and let it develope for a few hours afterwards! This was a huge selling point for me! You just have to make sure you cover everything and blend it in to ensure it's covered, but you don't have to worry about little streaks or any imperfections!). I'm now on day 4 of the tan, and I absolutely am in love and I probably will never buy a different product since this one is so easy and great. The only thing that I wasn't expecting was the smell. When you first apply it, there's no bad smell and it actually smells great. I washed it off like normal, and then a few hours later I went to bed and then I started to smell it. It's not going to stick up a room, but to me it smelled like bad oatmeal or something, I wish I could describe it better but I think that's the DHA smell everyone talks about. It's not a deal breaker though, since it goes away by your next shower. That smell is the only reason I gave it a 4 star rating, but the color is amazing, and i'm so glad I bought it!

        I've used self tanning products (lotions, foams, sprays you name it!) year-around for @ least 15+ years & the color pay-off w this one is honestly the absolute BEST I've ever tried (& I have tried them all trust me! Lol) the color ACTUALLY STAYS on your face & most of the time I have to buy a separate facial formula for any color to stay on my face...I hate it's a little pricey BUT, where I would HAVE to apply the Jergen's tanning foam every day or other day to maintain color & prevent streaking etc, with this, I'm only having to apply once a week so I'm actually using FAR less product, so when I realized how much less I was having to use LT, I was totally sold! JUST EXFOLIATE prior to application & DEF use a mitt!

        Comments about Loving Tan 2 HR Express Self Tanning Mousse:

        This is more expensive than I'd like, but it's so worth it! I've used it for 2 years now and get an awesome, even, natural looking tan every time. It works great for boosting or prolonging a spray tan too. Watching YouTube videos for tips is really helpful. It dries VERY quickly. I find it to smell like all the other fake tanners out there, but I don't mind because once rinsed, it's gone. Can't save more about how great this product is.
        Side note: I typically use the 2 hour dark, but always leave it on longer than 2 hours. Usually 4-8 hours. It darkens the longer you leave it. Use a mitt for application!
        Love it!!!!

        Comments about Loving Tan 2 HR Express Self Tanning Mousse:

        So when I first bought this, I LOVED it! The color is so natural and brown, not orange at all. However, when I'm out in natural light, I notice it can be uneven in certain places. It also literally washes off the minute I go into a pool. I arrive at the pool tan and by the time I leave it's almost gone. I'm not in a pool very long either. With that being said I've had to reapply a couple times a week (go to the pool every weekend lately) and this can get expensive to maintain this tan. Also, sometimes I get a nice shade right after I apply, and other times I have to apply it again the 2nd day to get more color. I feel like it's been fading a lot sooner than usual lately. This is using the Medium though...I haven't tried the dark or ultra dark since I'm pretty pale and I'm worried I'll go from pale to super tan overnight and people will know lol.

        Favorite self tanner

        By Morgan

        from Texas

        Comments about Loving Tan 2 HR Express Self Tanning Mousse:

        This is such an easy product to apply, and the results are so smooth! While applying, the streaks are totally normal. The instant tanner is to see where you've applied it and where you need to apply more. But after rinsing (not washing with soap!) it leaves your skin looking super smooth and the color is great. I'm pretty pale, and I use the dark color and it doesn't make me have that "just finished spray tanning" look. Definitely use the glove and apply it on your feet and hands last! It doesn't last as long as a regular spray tan, but it doesn't look bad at all when reapplied after a week or so.

            This product starts to smell like every single other fake tan after it's on you for about 10 minutes. I was really impressed with the tan until I went to shower two hours later (as instructed). I didn't scrub or use soap and I did pay dry. EVERY SINGLE BIT of the tan washed off. Seriously, don't believe the social media hype. This stuff DOES NOT work.

            Takes longer than 2 hours to fully develop

            By Bethany

            from Ohio

            Comments about Loving Tan 2 HR Express Self Tanning Mousse:

            I have used this product several times. But one thing I am noticing from reading the other reviews is that people are complaining about not being tan after 2 hours. You do appear darker when applying, but it's basically all color guard, when you rinse you will see the color come off. Here's the thing: after 2 hours you will notice some shade difference but this product still takes the same 8 hours or so developing time that other self tanners require. Honestly I am not sure why Loving Tan makes a 2 hr tan and also a regular self tanner, because they both take around the same time to develop. Please keep this in mind when purchasing and then being disappointed because you aren't tan after 2 hours! It does work. Also a side note, the longer you leave the tan on, the darker you'll be. I actually have to leave the ultra dark on longer than 2 hours to get the end results I want, so this may be the case for others as well.

            Very natural, no orange undertones. I always get asked if I spent my entire weekend at the beach after a fresh application of this self tanner. Exfoliating and moisturizing before hand is key to a smooth streak free tan. Having a tanning mit helps as well. Ultras tanning mit for $5.99 works great.

              Comments about Loving Tan 2 HR Express Self Tanning Mousse:

              I'm a self-tan expert. Tried them all. But this is hands down the best self tanner out there.
              Best parts: how brown I get and and how long it lasts!
              Normally I have to tan every 3 days to keep myself looking bronzed and not patchy. This tan lasts about a full week before I need to exfoliate and go again.
              The scent isn't really bad compared to others. You can slightly smell it but it's not that yucky tan smell you usually get.
              The color is perfect and really gets me brown (I'm naturally very pale!)
              The bottle is a little bit smaller than the typical self tanner bottle, but you won't have to tan as often as this one lasts much longer.
