Sooooo good!!

By Kelly k

Comments about TAN-LUXE The Water Hydrating Self-Tan Water:

I have a light skin tone and picked up the light version. Now I prefer my skin to look darker when I self tan. So I may exchange it for the dark one. BUT this smells SO good!!! Not like self tanner AT ALL!!! Plus it's the easiest self tanner I have ever applied! I thought I wouldn't like not having a guide coat but it's actually so much better without it! Worth the money!!

    Comments about TAN-LUXE The Water Hydrating Self-Tan Water:

    I was skeptical at first because your literally spraying water onto dry skin . It was so easy to apply ! The directions just say apply to dry skin and use tanning mitt in circular motions to rub in and that's it . It doesn't stain clothes or hands I applied at night put my pjs on and fell asleep and woke up the next morning with an even tan I was so please . I did however apply more of the spray to lighter areas and it came out great. The only downside is it has a slight smell to it when it's dried . I'm use to it cause some of the tanning locations all smell the same but other than that I absolutely love this product !

        I don't know why they say no odor. It stinks just like every other tan in a can once it starts developing. I'm so streaky. Awful.

        THE BEST

        By Hi

        from Kansas

        Comments about TAN-LUXE The Water Hydrating Self-Tan Water:

        This is the most amazing tanning product I have ever used (and trust me, I've tried them all). It doesn't give you an orangey look, it really looks like you just spent a month in Brazil. It doesn't get patchy or weird as it's fading like most self tanners do. The only tricky part is that it's hard to see if you've blended it all in because it's clear, so I highly recommend applying it with a tanning mitt and thoroughly blending it out. This product is my HOLY GRAIL self tanner.

          Comments about TAN-LUXE The Water Hydrating Self-Tan Water:

          I'd been curious about Tan Luxe for a while but only made my purchase after receiving a gift card from my Mum. I decided to go "all in" and purchased this product in Medium/Dark, the face drops in light/medium, and the body drops in light/medium. They're all great, and by far the best self tanning products i've tried... but THE WATER IS NEXT LEVEL. You literally just spray it on (use a tanning mitt!!), blend it out, and there's no texture left behind. No sticky feeling, no long drying time. I sprayed it onto dry skin, as the directions suggested and was able to put on clothing right away with no stress of it transferring or streaking. It was SO easy. The drops are great, but do have a little of that traditional self tan odor. It's nothing unbearable, but it's there. But with The Water, it's almost non-existent and I only smelled it after it had been developing for 3-4 hours...and event then, as I've said, it was very very very faint. I didn't use this product on my face, but I feel like it'd work beautifully for the face as well. Woke up the next morning with the most even tan i'd ever received from a self tanner. Problem areas were wrists, and ankles..but that was my fault to be sure. I recommend purchasing the St. Tropez remover mitt for exfoliating off those mistakes in the shower, it's a very handy tool! I'll definitely be using this product ALL SUMMER. The tan looks beautiful and realistic. Nothing orange or red, just looks like i've been on a lovely holiday...and for reference i'm naturally a light/medium skin tone with yellow/olive undertones. Lots of self tanners tend to pull toward the orange on me but this one didn't at all. I'd imagine the Mousse is similar in it's amazingness, as they're both totally clear and are made to dry very quickly with no sticky texture left behind. The Water is a holy grail for sure, please buy it if you're in the market for a new self tanner and like me feel you've tried them all..... you will not regret it!!!

              I can not say enough about the smell of this tanner. I LOVE it. I hate self-tanning smell's and I have tried ALL of them. Sadly, this caused me to look orange and not just a hint of orange FULL BLOWN oompa loompa!

                Definitely worth the money! Does not stain clothes or sheet AT ALL! I purchased an Ulta brand self tanner mitt and it worked perfectly. No streaks, no stickiness. I used the leftover product on the mitt to tan my face and it worked perfectly. You could easily get 7-8 tans from this one bottle.

                Excellent in theory, poor execution. This stuff is impossible to use unless you're a sunless tanning master. I consider myself to be a pretty experienced one but this stuff looked blotchy and streaky. The color is not natural and by day 2 it was already fading in spots. I bought the face drops from tan luxe as well and I LOVED them. I am just so disappointed in this particular product especially for the price point. I will be returning it. If you're used to products with a bronzer or a color guide, this is not for you. Also, it does smell. Not sure why it says it doesn't! It does dry quickly and doesn't rub off, pretty much no other pros though.

                  I love this product. It fades a bit faster then others I've tried but it's worth it for the color and how quickly it dries. I will be buying this for life! Can't wait to try their face tan drops.
