The other day I was lucky enough to open up my mailbox and see a package from iFabbo and Beautisol! A while back, Tashina‘s post about vegan self-tanning peaked my interest about the brand. So, when I was able to see it in my shop over at iFabbo, I knew I had to try the stuff out for myself. I have a history with self-tanner. I’ve bee orange and yellow, I’ve reeked of DHA, and I’ve even spent time in the tanning beds. Shame on me!
So, after opening this package I was stoked. My experience was positive and this product works for anyone who wants a subtle and natural looking glow, in my opinion. This is NOT for a drastic change in your skin tone. Upon opening my package I disregarded the importance of the mitt. Use your mitt because this product will stain your hands. When you first pump out the tanning mousse it resembles a very greenish brown woodsy color. Think pine trees. It also smells amazing. It’s got Rooibos Tea extract and Green Tea extract so my skin felt really rejuvenated all day long. I used it once BEFORE SHAVING, and once again AFTER SHAVING to see if there was any difference in color. For me, I had the same subtle glow that made me look sun-kissed rather than sun-tanned which, now in my mid 20s, I prefer.
Another plus? Application and dry time are both super quick! I’m a teacher and I have a limited amount of time to get all of my stuff done before I go to work. However, as a teacher you can’t really go into the classroom looking unkempt. I applied to my arms and legs according to the provided guide, and literally in less than two minutes I had my dress pants and blouse on without any transfer of color. It’s convenient and easy to apply and the mousse feels cool and gentle on freshly shaven legs. No burning, and no irritation for me! Looks like I can add another amazing self-tanner to my repertoire now!
