Tanceuticals Self Tanner Review

Hi everyone!  Although it is the middle of winter and freezing outside, I am a big fan of having a little tan on my skin.  I think it makes me look healthier and better all around.  Now when I say "tan", I don't mean the real kind you get from the sun.  I spent too much time in the sun and in tanning beds when I was younger and my skin is paying for it now.  So the only kind of tan I get now is from a bottle or a spray tan booth.

I have been getting spray tans some lately, but let's face it, those can get expensive and aren't as convenient since you have to drive somewhere to get it done.  I was looking for an option to use at home that would look realistic and would be easy to apply, and that is where Tanceuticals comes into the picture.  It is ranked as the number one self tanner on www.selftanning.com so I thought I would give it a try.

I started by using the Tanceuticals Pre-Tan Exfoliator because it is always a good idea to exfoliate your skin to prep it for the perfect sunless tan.  Tanceuticals has several types of self tanner and I chose to use the CC Self Tanning Body Mousse in Dark.  There is a lotion option as well, but I prefer the consistency of a mousse better...it's a personal preference I think.  I think one of the keys to a natural looking sunless tan is to use a tanning mit to apply the tanner on your skin.  It basically looks like an oven mit and you put the mousse or lotion on the mit instead of directly on your hands.  This way, you get a more even tan and don't run the risk of having tan palms...a sure sign of self tanner gone wrong!!  One thing I really like about Tanceutical's mousse is that it has some instant color in it so you can see where you are applying the mousse and ensure that it is applied evenly on your skin.

I was so pleased with how my sunless tan looked once it appeared in a few hours.  It was even and a nice non-orange realistic color.  I have the Tanceuticals tanner on in these photos, but it was 28 degrees during this photo shoot, so I wasn't about to show much skin!  Ha!  In the days after I applied the self tanner, I used the Everyday Tan Extender to moisturize my skin and help my tan last a little longer.  My tan lasted almost a week and never looked streaky or unnatural.  Overall, I was very happy with the products and will continue to use them to keep a healthy glow all year round.
