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.
Bali Body Self Tanner Review
Bali Body reached out to me and asked me to review their self-tanner mousse and BB cream. I have never heard of this brand until they reached out to me. I was definitely intrigued and excited to give it a try.
Bali Body is an Australian tanning brand whose products are made in their hometown of Melbourne.
Bali Body products are formulated using natural and naturally derived ingredients and they are only tested on ‘Bali Babes’.
They offer FREE shipping for all USA customers but can also be found at Ulta.

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.
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.
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.
