Can you believe we are officially in December? Wow, time sure is flying by and this month will be a busy one! I love getting to spend the holidays with family and friends and especially now with my daughter. Creating new memories with her and as a family!
With all the holiday festivities, parties, and things going on, I like to give my skin some love and attention as well during the holiday season. Since I am fair skinned and lose all my summer tan by this time of year, I like to use an at home self tanner. The one I’ve been loving lately is called TanCeuticals and I am sharing all about it in today’s post. You can check out their website for complete details and information. They are also rated the #1 self tanner on selftanning.com.
TanCeuticals is a self tanning lotion. It’s infused with cosmeceuticals like Acai Berry, Mango Butter, and Vitamin E to moisturize, repair and firm your skin. And it smells amazing, like coconuts! Sure you have that initial self tanner smell but in comparison to others its nothing. The products comes in a few shades – light, dark and ultra dark. In addition to the face and body lotions, they have a mouse, a pre-tan exfoliater, a wash-off bronzer and many more. I use the body and face lotions in ‘dark’. I also recommend getting the mit, which is great for that even application and saving your palms from becoming orange. They use all natural ingredients, which I love and ultimately drew me to the product.
For best results, its recommended to apply at night, before going to bed. Be sure to exfoliate your skin and shave before using. The lotion goes on light and dries very quick. Definitely recommend using the mit for the body as its quick and goes on very evenly. I use a small amount of face lotion to apply on my face and neck (rinse my hands after), then I apply to the body using the mit. Do go easy on your hands, feet and knees as it takes much less product to get the same color. Use one time a week if you want to maintain that consistent tan or less often if you just want a fresh glow here and there. Also, while it looks great the very next day, I personally like the tan most on day two as it does look a little more natural.
In my opinion the tan looks very natural and subtle after one application. I went easy on the application as I didn’t know what to expect. (A little does go a long way!) If you want darker initial results, I’d say wait a few days and apply again on areas you’d like darker, such as your legs and arms. I have sensitive skin and it did not bother my face or make me break out which is such a win! I have fair skin and was a little nervous about using the ‘dark’ lotion but it comes out as a pretty neutral color. I personally love the face lotion almost more as my face is always whiter than my body and this gives me the perfect sun kissed glow! To sum up my review, I really like the lotions and would definitely recommend this product! You can also check out their great reviews and ratings here!
