I love to use self tanning products in the summer. I have very light skin and I try not to spend too much time in the sun. A good self tanner is essential to a great glow in the summer time!
Million Dollar Tan recently sent me some products for my honest review. I really enjoyed how easy they are to use. Here are my faves:
Mermaid Mousse Extreme Face and Body Dark Sunless Tanning Mousse ($74.00 for the pair, or purchase them separately) — Mermaid Mousse Extreme is a more intense, yet just as fabulous, version of our whipped tanning mousse. Still ultra-light and effortless to apply, it has an extra boost of color for those with darker skin tones or anyone wishing to be ultra-bronzed. Don’t let the word “extreme” scare you off—like all of our products, this mousse provides a gradual, buildable color that always looks natural. It’s also packed with vitamins and seriously hydrating moisturizers for enviably smooth, soft skin. Use it with our extreme face mousse for the rich all-over color you crave!
Mermaid Mousse Extreme Face is a deeper, richer, more intense version of our luxurious whipped face mousse. It’s perfect for anyone wishing to be ultra-tanned! We’ve added our revolutionary new FaceFirmTM Age Defense Super Pack, clinically proven to dramatically lift, firm and tone skin. This fabulously light formula won’t clog pores and is effortless to apply; you’ll have a stunningly irresistible glow in no time! Put your best face forward every day with this dazzling, multi-tasking mousse!
What I think: This dynamic duo has really given me a great summer glow! This is a buildable color, so the first time I used it, I got a fair to medium tan. But using it every day or every other day increased the color to a beautiful deep tan. It is a creamy mousse that blends so well!
Summer Sun ($42 USD) has it all—it’s everything you need for gorgeous, summer-ready skin in one bottle! Based on our best-selling line of Mermaid Mousses, this amazingly light and airy mousse will give you an even, all-over tan that’s even darker and more luminous than our Extreme formulas. With rich, ultra-bronze tones and a natural sheen, you’ll have a perfect tan that will leave you wondering how you ever got through the summer without this product. SUMMER SUN also contains our exclusive TANlock technology, a proprietary blend of botanicals designed to make your tan last longer, stay more radiant and fade more evenly. And because no one wants to smell like sunless tanner, we’ve added Deoplex, a natural odor neutralizer that keeps tanning a totally fresh and revitalizing experience for all of your senses. Like all of our formulas, SUMMER SUN is completely natural and made with raw, organic DHA, so use it as often as you like for the best tan (and summer!) you’ve ever had!
What I think: Another easy to blend mousse, this one is perfect for those who want a darker tan that what you get with Mermaid Mousse Extreme. This is Million Dollar Tan’s newest mousse and it is as easy to use as their other products. It’s just the thing when you need a darker tan quickly, instead of using a gradual tanner.
All That Shimmers Dry Oil Shimmer ($32 USD) — This amazing dry oil shimmer adds an extra bit of bronze sheen to your sunless tan, or use it on its own for just a touch of color and subtle luminosity. Hydrating botanicals pack a powerful, skin smoothing punch—even dull, dry skin becomes instantly refreshed and radiant. Perfectly shimmery and never glittery, it’s party-ready sheen that’s actually good for your skin! With a hint of bronzer and a bit of shimmer, you’ll dazzle in the sunlight or the limelight.
What I think: I usually don’t use a lot of shimmer on my body, but this is a very nice product. It is easy to blend to add color and shimmer. I like to apply it to legs, shoulders and décolletage. It is nice for going out because it adds a glow to the skin.
Blend Friend Tanning Mitt Set ($24 USD) — Made with a one-of-a-kind micro-soft sponge material, this face and body mitt set is ultra soft and makes it easy to apply any sunless tanner, even in difficult or hard to reach areas. The special stretchy fabric and unique design allow you to comfortably place your hand inside the mitt for superior control over where and how much tanner you apply. The inner lining ensures that tanning product does not find it’s way to your hands, protecting your palms from becoming too tan. With separate mitts for the face and body, these are the only accessories you’ll need to have an even, smooth and perfectly blended sunless tan every time.
What I think: I love these mitts! They are easy to use, are so soft and blend like a dream! The only thing is that if you use a lot of mousse with them, it does soak through a little. But I just wash my hands afterwards and it doesn’t stain.
