Control your tan level with Ulta's Self Tanning Express Tan Tinted Mousse. Leave on for 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium tan, or 3+ hours for a deep tan (tan will not continue to deepen after 3 hours).

Benefits:
  • Coconut Water helps keep skin hydrated
  • Express formula allows you to choose your tan level
  • Shower, sweat or swim after only one hour of wear without streaking
For best results, apply to freshly cleansed and exfoliated skin. Hold bottle upright and pump onto sunless tan applicator mitt and apply in long, sweeping motions. Use sparingly around ankles, knees, and elbows. Wash hands thoroughly after application. Let skin dry prior to dressing. Allow 1, 2, or 3 hours before showering depending on your desired tan level. For your first shower, just rinse the body with warm water. Your tan will be fully developed after about 8 hours.

Precautions: This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin ageing, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn. Use only as directed. Avoid contact with eyes & lips. Carry out a patch test 24 hours before use. Do not apply to broken or irritated skin. Store below 30ºC/86¿F in a cool, dark area. Keep out of reach of children.

I left it on for an hour and saw no difference. When I applied it (with the mitt), I could see a change, but it didn't last.

    Comments about ULTA Self Tanning Express Tan Tinted Mousse:

    I love the ULTA brand spray tan, but unfortunately they were out when I went to the store so I picked up this instead. I was very excited when putting it on because you could see the color and know where you need to blend. HOWEVER, I waited 6 hours to rinse and I still feel like more product went down the drain on all over my towels than I got on my body. I didn't even get a noticeable tan afterwards and it really clogged my poors. I was very disappointed since the reviews for this product were so great. Do NOT buy this product please just save your money.

    Comments about ULTA Self Tanning Express Tan Tinted Mousse:

    I was a little scared of the product when I first put it on because it looked grey on my skin, but after completing the rest of my body it looked awesome! No streaks at all, the tan is bronze, not orange, and did not build up on my wrists/elbows/ankles. I also have Keratosis Pilaris and this helps cover the redness on my arms! This is definitely my favorite self tanner to date, and definitely will be buying more when I run out!!

      Comments about ULTA Self Tanning Express Tan Tinted Mousse:

      I was going to give 4 stars because I have tried self tanners that are better but obviously they cost 3 times as much as this. So 5 stars goes to Ulta because this is cheap, you get A LOT, it works in an hour, and it dries fast. 2 pumps covers almost my whole arm. I'm going to try the lotion, it's even cheaper than the mousse. The color of this is pretty dark and kind of reddish but only if you apply too much into creases or around your wrists and ankles. but to me that's better than using a cheap self tanner that will make you green because naturally you do have a little redness in the sun. I'm mixed (half black and half white) so I always try to buy the darkest self tanners and so far this and Tarte work best!

      Best Self Tanner Ever

      By Regan

      from Orlando, FL

      About Me Beauty Conscious

      Comments about ULTA Self Tanning Express Tan Tinted Mousse:

      I have never been happy with any self tanner until trying this! It was so easy to apply (I used the Ulta tanning mit to apply) and it did not streak at all. It looks incredibly natural, not orange at all. It doesn't smell. My tan looks so even. I even used it on my face with no problems. I would highly recommend this!

      Cons

      • Bad Smell
      • Greasy
      • Orange color

      Best Uses

      • For fast tan

      Comments about ULTA Self Tanning Express Tan Tinted Mousse:

      I'm surprised people say it's not orange and doesn't smell, my experience is the opposite. I had it on for 1,5 hour and I got tan but it's an orange/red kind of tan and I've smelled like an old sock since I put it on even tho I've showered three times.

      It does develop a tan fast which is nice, but other products in the same price range gives a far better color.

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          Wait 8 hours before showering, sweating or swimming to allow your tan to fully develop. After that, the effects are waterproof! Typically, one application will last 3-5 days, and you can re-apply as needed to extend the life of your tan. Enjoy!
