There Are Pro's & Con's

Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

I LOVE using the Ultra Dark. I love the way it looks on my skin and how it looks after being applied. I would not recommend UD if you're looking for something that gives you a really dark, olive tan. I've tried dark as well- and to me, that gave me a subtle, natural looking finish, but it just wasn't something I fell in love with - being that I love being super tan all year round. I also love building up the color as I first apply. Be sure to leave on 8 + hours and then lightly rinse off in the shower after the time framed mentioned. My only issue is the amount of product you get for $39.95. Also- I don't really like how it fades. I moisturize like crazy and I still can't quite understand why this gets patchy in certain areas after only a few days. I have to exfoliate after 3 days of wearing it so I can start over to get a fresh, even tan. I gave it 4 stars for the reasons mentioned, otherwise I would have given this 5 stars!! Other than the small issues, this is my absolute go-to self-tanner!

Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

I loooooooove this product! I was extremely skeptical because I hate following "hyped" products and because this brand was HEAVILY sponsored I felt like it was extremely biased. I've tried St Tropez (to me it was a well rounded brand) and I was pretty satisfied with that but I decided to try something new. I took the plunge and ordered the medium shade but then was recommended to do the dark because I was already a medium light skin tone and wanted a darker bronze. I also purchased the matching mitt from LT (I highly reccomend the mitt!)

Okay so I followed the directions as followed and the application was fairly easy. A lot of people reccomended 2 layers but I only did 1. So here is where I messed up- My hair was in a towel when I was applying my self tanner and I stupidly decided to take my hair out of the towel and sleep. BIG MISTAKE! My wet hair caused streaking around my neck and removed the self tanner causing a huge demarcation all over the top of my chest and shoulders. After rinsing off the color it was still extremely noticeable. I decided to do one more layer of self tanner where it had came off and left it for about 4 hours. That next day it was even and no can't even tell I had messed up.

The color was gorgeous! I had gotten so many compliments it was overwhelming. The foam was a nice brown shade which was pleasing cause St Tropez is like a funky green brown. The only complaint I have is that I was able to get 3 full body tans with this one bottle with some leftover for maybe my legs. There isn't much of a smell, a lot of tanners smell like soy sauce and yes there is a faint smell but it's not overwhelming. I highly reccomend this product and have already restocked it with 2 bottles of the Ultra Dark. I hope ULTA will carry the large sizes soon!

Only Con is price per oz

By Jess

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

Great color (ultra dark). I'm naturally very fair and get very bronze with this. Doesn't streak and dries nicely overnight. I've moved on to bondi sands ultra dark though. Color is just as good, lasts a tad bit longer (I shower and workout quite frequently), and bottle is cheaper but contains 7oz rather than Loving tans 4. I'm 5'2 and petite and only get 3-4 uses out of a bottle of loving tan (I layer it on pretty thick. Still a great self tanner though, I'm a fake tan junkie and this one reigned supreme from 2013-2017 for me because nothing could compete

Loving Tan in Medium

By Holliepalooza

from Springfield, MO

Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

I LOVE this product! I'm pretty light skinned, not fair, but light. I apply this product with the mitt & it never streaks nor is it orange-y. A little bit goes a long way on my light skin & it's immediate results. Let it dry while u continue to get ready. It says 60 seconds, but I give it an hour while I do makeup & hair. My 1st purchase was actually thru IG, but I will now purchase this thru Ulta! YAY!!!

    Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

    I have tried alllll kinds of self tanners- towels, spray, mousse, lotion. And this is by far the best. It looks exactly like the tan I get when I sit in the sun. It takes a few times to really get the process down for how to apply it- you really have to rub it in, it dries quickly. The color guide will show you where you might have splotches. I also use a brush for my hands and ankles. I use this at night and then shower it off in the AM. It looks really natural on your face too. I will mix a pump with my face lotion and then use a big brush to blend. I love this stuff!

    Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

    I'm an avid self tanner and the color in this product is good but it's SOOO drying. I normally don't have dry skin but it's sit very uncomfortable on my skin after awhile. And it's fades patchy. I normally opt for organic tanners that have natural organic ingredients. Would recommend for none dry skin.

    Not very dark but not to orange either

    By Acora

    from Utah

    Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

    It helps with a very light tan, wouldn't use it for a dark one. went on pretty even with the mitt. I did have a hard time with my back you will smell like tanner for a day or two though. I don't like having to wait so lo g to shower though. I'll try the 2 hr express after this bottle is gone.

    FAV FAKE TAN

    By Chyb

    from Maine

    Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

    Literally been terrified of self tan for EVER because all you hear is horror stories. I took the plunge and bought this one (ultra dark) after hearing a ton of youtubers recommend it. It's AWESOME. Perfect olive tan color, no steaks, SO EASY to apply, and it lasts for about a week or more if you take good care of it. Definitely recommend!

    Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

    I'm not sure how I feel about this stuff. Of course I saw all the perfect photos and reviews on Instagram, however what you see is not always what you get. The photos never show a streak or how this never applys evenly on the hands no matter how hard you try. I've tried exfoliating and using lotion tried everything and still streaky hands and fingers. Then you are left with white hands tan arms. Those insta photos cannot be reality. I feel foams in general are just harder to apply evenly, I'm used to fake bake flawless spray and never had I had an issue with streaking with a spray and the mitt. There is no smell so it's good in that sense. The color is pretty good, i purchased medium and it's pretty natural but I like the color guard color more because it's more of a real tan brown tone. I think after you wash it, it almost comes off as orangey, this may be different with the darker types. The one thing is it's very hard to it get off too, once it's on it's on so you need to really scrub hard if you make a mistake or need it off for new application. I'm not sure if I will buy again or if I will return back to my old faithful, but overall it's not bad, but it will not give you those perfect instagram worthy results they advertise.

    Comments about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse:

    This is the best self tanner you can buy. That being said, fake tanning is not for the low maintenance. You have to take time to exfoliate properly (I use the tan removing mitt from St Tropez), you have to MOISTURIZE at least once a day (esp after a shower). You cannot sit in a body of water without it fading or coming off. This usually looks good for about 5 days before it starts to fade and come off. You HAVE to scrub ALL of the tan off before applying a fresh layer. If you apply new tan over old tan, it will NOT look or wear well. Self tan will dry out your skin, so a good moisturizer (without alcohol or mineral oil which will eat away at the tan) is necessary (I like the Hempz one). The color of this tan looks SO natural, and the ultra dark color is actually dark. Give this a try, but make sure you use it correctly.
