Wait you use a self-tanner even though you’re naturally tan? Yes, yes I do. That is the most common question I get. For me, using a self-tanner not only makes me feel like I was sun-kissed but because I want to enhance my natural tan. It gives my skin this beautiful glow. The only time I do not self-tan is in the summer because I get so dark from the sun if I am by the pool. No need for self-tanner.

Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse
Not going to lie, I was a little intimidated by the ultra-dark because I wasn’t sure how dark this would turn out. The mousse is extremely dark but its also soft, light, airy and creamy. It has the neatest texture of any self-tanner I have ever used. It’s enriched with soothing chamomile extract, antioxidant coffee seed extract, and rejuvenating pomegranate extract. With the self-tanning mousse, they also sent over their Luxe Tanning Mitt (not sold at Ulta but any mitt works) which is so soft. The glove was easy to apply the self-tanning mousse and left ZERO streaks.
- A great thing about this self-tanner is that it doesn’t smell awful like some self-tanners do. I can’t pinpoint the scent but it doesn’t bother me at all.
- I would most definitely let your skin dry at least 10 mins before putting on loose-fitting clothes.
- I only leave the self-tanner on for 4 hours versus 8 hours.
The self-tanning mousse can last up to a week but honestly, I reapply after day 3 or 4. Just to keep up with the color. I do not recommend sleeping with the self-tanner on white or light color sheets! Unless you plan to wash it the next day. I rather apply it 4 hours before I have to shower and go to bed. I sweat when I sleep. You get a beautiful bronze look without any orange tones.
Face Tan Water
I use this in the morning every day. It’s a great way to give your face a glowy finish even underneath your makeup or underneath the Bali Body BB Cream. The Face Tan Water gives you a gradual tan on the face without looking orange. It develops within 4-6 hours. I personally use this on a cotton pad as a toner OR mix it with my moisturizer.
Bali Body BB Cream with SPF 15
I prefer BB creams over CC creams. I knew I had to try out their BB cream. And I was in love. This BB cream gives a beautiful natural skin look. I do love that it has SPF so I can see myself using this a lot this summer while laying out by the pool or when I am out and about. They have 2 shades for this BB Cream so I hope they come out with more colors. I am using the shade, Tan.
This tinted face cream combines your foundation, sunscreen, anti-aging, and moisturizer all in one. It’s enriched with green tea and ginseng for rejuvenating properties, hyaluronic acid, and marine collagen to help renew your skin. It’s lighter than a foundation but it does provide a more beautiful coverage than other BB creams I’ve tried.
