Most Helpful Positive Review Best Smelling Self Tanning Product
Let's start from the top, shall we? 1. The packaging is adorable, definitely something that can be incorporated into your next shelfie if you're into that sort of thing. The pump works great and dispenses product easily. 2. Smells great! Reminds me of The Body Shops warm brown sugar line. Definitely my favorite smell over any tanning product I've used (I use a lot). 3. I won't lie, it applies REALLY easily. You know some tanning products where you feel like if you don't work really hard, that stuff just won't SPREAD? This has a really moisturizing texture that glides on and makes it seem like you don't have to use too much. 4. It dries in a totally reasonable amount of time (I did not use a timer) and doesn't leave you feeling sticky or greasy. 5. The color is great! I'd say it left me 3 shades darker by the next day (I applied it at night as I do with most tanning products). The undertone was great, very olive & natural looking, not orange AT. ALL. 6. Now for the only real CON. I personally did NAWT experience an even tan. I had patchiness around my ankles, knees, elbows and hands. And yes I did exfoliate beforehand. But I'll be honest I have not found a SINGLE self tanner where I don't end up with some kind of patchy or blotchiness. I think I'm just a dry lady ;). So with all of that in mind, IF this product is within your budget, yes I would recommend it. If it's not, I do think there are products that (maybe with a little more effort) will give you similar results!
Most Helpful Critical Review Red-toned, Streaky
Sunless tanning mouses have historically been my favorite form of sunless tanners for their fast application and quick drying abilities. This product does well in both of those aspects, however the pro's unfortunately stop there. I initially liked how this doesn't have a color guard because I didn't have to worry about staining my sheets or my clothing... but unfortunately it still didn't pass the "white shirt test" because it STILL somehow managed to stain the collars of my white shirt as it developed, even just after 1 application! Not only that, but the application was patchy even though I followed all of my usual self tanning steps (I've used sunless tanning mouses for YEARS). For reference, I used a Loving Tan mitt for application. It did not develop a deep dark color, but more of a red-toned medium tint. I did not think the red tone complemented my skin tone whatsoever, and I much prefer the green tinted sunless tanners I've used previously that develop more olive-toned tans as opposed to burnt-red ones like this did. Furthermore, while this did fade evenly, it also faded very quickly within a day or two. The smell was also very typical of a sunless tanner as well. Overall, the price is certainly not justified and I've used far better sunless tanners in the past that develop deeper and more natural looking tans that last longer and develop more evenly than this did, and cost even less.

Have been using this for a while and loving it. Just ordered 2 bottles and neither pump works. For the $, no longer worth it. Going to find something else.
Really works and smells amazing!
Brittney from undisclosed
I've used self tanners before and have never achieved such great results like I have with Coola's. Their 2-in-1 mitt was really easy to use. I exfoliated thoroughly, then applied the mousse in a circular motion all over my body. In one hour I could already see the difference! The tan looked so natural and bronze, plus it faded really nicely too. No streaks, no patches, just a really nice, natural-looking tan. This is the perfect way to stay tan all year round without exposing yourself to harmful sun rays. ◡̈
*I was gifted this product, but can honestly say that I LOVE all of Coola's products!

Very easy to apply and looks very natural I love it
This is my fav sunless
Briana C. from undisclosed
This is my fav sunless tanning mousse. It looks natural and is quick and easy to use.
Great quality; quick, easy application
Kristen H. from undisclosed
Great color quality. It dries quickly but I have to moisturize first, otherwise it will dry my skin out after a couple days. Best brand I've used; goes on clear but color sets in quickly. Just be careful to apply evenly and let it dry before washing it off your hands especially. For best results: exfoliate before applying to ensure even applications, especially with repeated use.
Great all-year-long glow
Renee F. from undisclosed
This is very easy to apply, the color is natural looking. It does not stain hands if you wash very quickly after application. The quality is impressive. I suggested my cis male spouse use it since the foam would get around his hair better than a lotion would ever do.
lanaato from undisclosed
Ive tried many self-tanners before but this got to the best! Its so easy to apply. The mousse spreads easily, doesn't streak or stain the clothes.
Plus, the tan looks very natural and lasts a good number of days.
The best sunless tanner on the market!
Eileen M. from undisclosed
Always my favorite! This mousse is the best! It gives a beautiful, natural looking tan that doesn't streak easily or get on clothes. Hands down, this is the best sunless tanner on the market! If you use the mitt applicator, it will not leave your hands colored, but if you don't, just wash your hands right away and you won't have a problem. It dries quick enough that usually by the time I'm done applying, I can start dressing in an opposite order with no residue getting on my clothing. I get compliments on my 'natural looking tan" year round. It gives a nice base color on the initial application, which is easily buildable. Once you've reached your desired color, you really only need to reapply once or twice weekly. Also, there's no smell or greasy feeling for significant others to complain about!
The sunless tanner is gold!
Stephanie from undisclosed
This sunless tanner was gifted to me, and I love how easy it makes it to build my tan. The price is much cheaper than department store sunless tanners, and the result with Coola is much better. I highly recommend this to keep that summer glow!
I'll never go spray tanning again!
Bethany Dawn Jury from undisclosed
Love this product with the exfoliating mitt! It's perfect to keep a glow all season long!
I love the mousse
Misa from undisclosed
The COOLA mousse is amazing. I applied it with the mitt and it was so easy to apply. I love that it doesn't feel wet after a couple minutes. It has a light scent and I love the beautiful glow it gives my skin with only one application.
The mousse and mitt were gifted to me.
Adelina from undisclosed
I was gifted this product and I was honestly extremely impressed. The mousse makes it super easy to see where you're applying the product and keeps everything much cleaner than oilier products. I definitely recommend this product!!
Goes on evenly with no

Goes on evenly with no streaking and the smell is reminiscent of being at the beach.

I love this self tanner.. it smells amazing when you apply it, dries very quickly and is not sticky at all! It develops into a beautiful color on my fair skin! I was gifted this product but will definitely continue to use! It's truly amazing!!
Love the color and how it's streak-free!

Love how the color looks and how easy it is to use. Can't wait to use in winter!
Tarsila O. from undisclosed
I was kindly gifted this product by coola and I was surprised at how good it was. I have tried other brands before and I always ended up with a blotchy tan. This one left my skin looking naturally tanned, super smooth and no spots whatsoever.
The best smelling self-tanner ever!!
Kellyn from undisclosed
This self tanner seriously smells AMAZING. It didn't stain my clothes or my white bedding either, which is usually a challenge!! I love the subtle color it gave me - it's a healthy glow and isn't too dramatic or orange. Note I was gifted this product.
Amazing Natural Results
Svetlana from undisclosed
Thank you, Coola for gifting me this awesome product! I love how natural it looks on the skin and the best part it doesn't transfer to clothes & bedding!! So I can use it whenever I want and just get dressed right away while the tan develops. Can't say enough good things about it, simply amazing!
Love this self tanner
giovanna002 from undisclosed
Works great, goes on easy and the color is beautiful and natural. Never orange, really looks like I was out in the sun tanning.
Literally nothing happens
Lauren from Nashville, TN
Don't let the cute packaging suck you in...So yeah, it smells alright. Nothing better than the typical tanning mousse or lotion. I notice literally no change in color to my skin. And I'm fair. It's a white mousse, so don't expect an immediate tint. Even then after waiting hours and through to the next day, I was the same color as before. I've used many self tanners and have never had this experience. Really disappointed!
Kelsey K. from undisclosed
I love how this makes my skin look! Not streaky at all, takes a while to fade, and the ingredients aren't toxic. Love it!
Peggy from undisclosed
This is the first at-home sunless tanner I have used and it has far succeeded my expectations . easy to use, even coverage and smells great! I used the mitt to apply. Very happy with my purchase and will be ordering again.
Natural looking and easy to use
Karen C. from undisclosed
I've never used a self-tanner before, but I was bored in quarantine and figured, why not? I bought the mitt that goes with this. It applied very easily to my legs. For newbies like me, be prepared that you have to stand around bored and naked for like 20+ minutes while this dries. This is a great product that gave my body a natural-looking glow. It faded evenly, as well. Highly recommend if you're curious!
Color is natural!
DeLinda F. from undisclosed
I was asked if it's my real skin color and i said no, it's Coola so the tanning is awesome. Unfortunately the odor is still there as other tanning mousses.
Won My Heart
Caseu from undisclosed
I've been using this mousse for over a year and aways pleased with the results. It is easiest sunless tan application I've experienced and provides an instant glow while developing a pretty natural-looking color over several hours. It is also great for a little tan-touring. I really like it because it doesn't feel sticky like some other sunless tan mousses nor does it dry the skin. I will keep purchasing this product.
