Beautisol Self-Tanning Mousse Review

[maxbutton id=”1″]Beautisol Self-Tanning Mousse Review

One of my favorite self-tanning products out there has just been released in a new larger size! I first discovered Beautisol several years ago when I was invited to a beauty event in San Francisco. Created by the Self-Tanning Queen herself, Sinead Norenius, who always has flawless bronzed skin, I was immediately intrigued by the brand. They are cruelty-free and all products are also vegan. iFabbo sent me a bottle of the new 8 ounce size Self-Tanning Mousse from Beautisol for review. The timing was perfect as it’s starting to get warmer outside.

Claims:A lightweight, quick drying self-tanning mousse for all skin colors and skin types which produces a natural looking tan.

Ingredients:  Water (Aqua) Dihydroxyacetone, Ethoxydiglycol, Caramel, Glycerin, Decyl Glucoside, Sodium PCA, Betaine, Sorbitol, Glycine, Alanine, Proline, Serine, Threonine, Arginine, Lysine, Glutamic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Coco-Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, Fragrance (Parfum) Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Yellow 6 (CI 15985) Red 40 (CI 16035) Green 5 (CI 61570)

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan formula. Very easy to apply. The formula is tinted to provide instant color and to help you see where you may have missed. Comes with an application mitt to prevent your hands from absorbing too much product. Paraben-free. Moisturizing formula.

Cons: The formula may dry quickly for some – just remember to take your time with the application process.

The Verdict: Any long-time reader of Logical Harmony knows that I love this self-tanning mousse! It’s one of the best self-tanning products out there. It gives me a very natural color in minutes that deepens over time. The color is very natural and never orange.

With summer right around the corner, I’m preparing my skin my with self-tanning products. Personally, I try to avoid the sun as much as I can.

Beautisol Self-Tanning Mousse Review

Beautisol Self-Tanning Mousse Review

One of my favorite self-tanner brands is Beautisol! I’ve been a fan of their products for years. Their self-tanners have always offered natural looking color that lasts. Now that it’s becoming summer dress weather, being tanned is on the minds of a lot of people. While sunbathing may have been a past-time of previous generations, all the knowledge we have now shows that prolonged sun exposure does more harm that good. Not only does it increase your change of skin cancer, but you’re also more prone to wrinkles and sun spots. Avoid all of that potential damage by getting a great sunless tan!

Not only is Beautisol a cruelty free, but they are also a vegan brand. They recently came out with a new formula of their classic self tanner. When I was asked to try the mousse and review it, I just had to! The self-tanning mousse is also paraben-free, propylene glycol-free, and sodium laurel/laureth sulfate-free.

Claims:You get our super fast drying, long-lasting, natural-looking medium tan with our odor eliminating technology – Pure Scent.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Dihydroxyacetone, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Candelilla/Jojoba/Rice Bran Polyglyceryl-3 Esters, Cyclopentasiloxane, Citroflex 2, Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Erythrulose, Phenoxyethanol, Aleurites Moluccana Seed Oil, Caramel, Caprylyl Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Phytic Acid, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (D-alpha), Fragrance/Parfum, Blue 1, Yellow 5, Red 33

Pros: The mousse formula dries extremely fast! It’s perfect for quick self-tanning sessions and you don’t have to wait more than a couple of minutes to get dressed. The color develops gradually and looks very natural. It also dries to a matte finish.

Cons: The formula is tinted, but not overly so. That combined with the quick drying time may make this a difficult self-tanner for inexperienced users. If you’re not confident in your abilities, enlist a friend to help you!

The Verdict: This is, hands down, the best self-tanner that I have ever used! There are not enough words to express how much I’m loving this self-tanning mousse from Beautisol! The color develops slowly and is very natural looking. I especially love the matte formula. Most self-tanning lotions have illuminator or glitter in them and it’s nice to have an option where it isn’t obvious you’re wearing the self-tanner. Another great perk about Beautisol is that you don’t turn orange and it’s very difficult to end up with streaks. Especially if you use the application mitt.

Included with purchase is an application mitt and guide to help you with the self-tanning process. The guide is incredibly helpful, but you can also check out How To Video’s on the brands website for more tips. When I first started using self-tanner, I watched all of these videos and found that they really helped me figure out the best way to apply these products. If you need more tips, you can also read the post Tips for a Flawless and Safe Sunless Tan.
