If you watched my June Favorites video then you already know that I have been loving the Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse self tanner. To tell people more about the product and why I have been loving it recently, I wanted to post a full review. I was first introduced to Loving Tan through readers of Logical Harmony some time ago, and while this vegan brand has been on the cruelty free brands list for a long time, I never tried their products. After seeing the products used by Jaclyn Hill and Rhian from Wife Life, I knew I needed to give them a try!

The salon inspired formula provides you with an immediate color, while developing into a deeper, darker tan. The color guide technology ensures an easy, streak free application every time.

More details from Loving Tan: “Apply moisturizer liberally to your hands and feet paying particular attention to your ankles and wrists. Pump a small amount of mousse onto your Loving Tan Applicator Mitt. Using circular motions, apply mousse directly to your body, blending as you go to ensure even coverage. Allow 60 seconds before dressing. Avoid perspiration or water for six hours while the tan develops. Finally, shower off to reveal a sexy, natural tan. For best results apply to clean, dry and exfoliated skin.“

Pros: Dries quickly. Tinted formula. Easy to apply. Leave a gorgeous color. Yummy scent. Alcohol free. Paraben free. Cruelty free brand. Vegan formula.
Cons: If you aren’t familiar with mousse formulas for self-tanning, it may be tricky to blend correctly at first.
The Verdict: As I mentioned in my June Favorites video, I am now a total convert. I use the Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Dark and have absolutely fallen in love with this product. It is so easy to apply. The mousse dries quickly, but not too quickly and there is time to fully rub it into your skin. It has an immediate bronze tint, which is a gorgeous shade. It smells slightly sweet, slightly floral, and not at all like chemicals. After rinsing it off, I have a deep, gorgeous, and natural looking tan for days. I am hooked!
