Description

Skin feelin’ thirsty? Hydrate while you tan with our vitamin infused Self-Tan Mousse.

Our transparent water-to-foam formula is the easiest way to achieve an all over, flawless bronze. The lightweight foam glides onto skin- for a tan that’s both fast-drying & mess-free.

Once developed, your glow will last up to one week and fades evenly like your sun tan would. Each bottle is express, so for a light glow, wash off after 2 hours. For the deepest bronze max it out overnight before showering. Available in 3 adaptable shades, choose yours based on your desired end-result: Light Glow, Medium Tan and Dark Bronze.

Using our Self-Tan Mousse will brighten, soften and hydrate with our skin-saving trio of Pink Grapefruit, Goji Berry & Juniper. Extra-firming root & resin extract also work to smooth & tone skin.
With our fresh Eucalyptus fragrance, Tanologist is formulated at a low pH to minimise the traditional “tanner” scent.

As a pale girlie, this was AWESOME! I was worried about what shade to get, but the medium is great! No orange cast at all. Just make sure you properly exfoliate beforehand!

Rebecca - 13 days ago, Verified purchaser
I initially liked this the first time trying. It is a lot lighter in color compared to what I prefer but for the price I was fine with it. I am almost done with the bottle and my concerns are with how easy it comes off against my clothes. When the tan was developing it stained my clothes and wouldn’t come out. I wore a white button down to work and it stained the inside.

Immediate pro: doesn’t stain sheets or clothes Immediate con: can’t tell where you have & haven’t applied the foam 😂 Fail on my part: I don’t have anyone to do my back. I suggest applying 2-3 days in advance so you can do a 2nd round the following day to cover any missed areas. I received compliments on my tan - the color looks good. I purchased the darkest & I’m a very fair red head. Maybe I’ll try medium next time & the missed areas won’t be as obvious??

I’m so confused by the negative comments! It worked amazing for me! (Granted I’m pretty pale naturally) I left it on for 2.5 hrs and washed it off last night. I woke up this morning and noticed a HUGE difference and no streaking or splotchiness! I used a tanning mit to apple and it worked so well for me!

This was ok, but definitely not express. I liked that the product didn’t smell like self tanner and it didn’t streak. It is by far the stickiest tanner I’ve ever used. You have to leave it on overnight if you want any sort of color at all. I did two coats, left on for 8 hours and just got a light color. Luckily that’s all I wanted.

Sticky after dry down and fades quickly

lala0504 - 23 days ago, Verified purchaser
This was easy to apply, even without a color guard and had no color transfer. However, I wasn't impressed with the color payoff and it seems to fade quickly (pretty much gone 3-4 days in). You need to let this develop for 6+ hours. It has the typical tanning smell. The worst for me though is that it stays sticky even after an extended dry time... it feels like a film is left on my skin for hours and drives me absolutely crazy.

I am always skeptical about self tanners and always find something I dislike about all the ones I try. I have been using Tanologist Tanning Mousse (Medium) for approx. two weeks now and I absolutely love it! When I first started using it, I used a mitt to apply. I found that it took quite awhile to dry and felt a little sticky/tacky as it dried. But once it was dry, it was beautiful! I purchased a lotion applicator wand that rolls and it’s made this product even BETTER!! I apply it and just keep rolling the applicator over my skin until it’s dry. No stickiness at all!! Will definitely be purchasing more!!

Orange and super splotchy. I was super careful and even with applying it, but it came out horribly. Also, the bottle doesn’t have clear instructions on it like most self tanners I’ve used.

Hanbanan - 1 month ago
It’s okay! Being clear is tricky because you can’t see where you miss. It was oddly splotchy on my legs where other brands aren’t usually. It is also a bit more orange than I would want. It also seems like it wouldn’t stain because it’s clear, but as it develops it will start to stain things. Overall, I’m happy enough with it with this price point. I’ll try again and see if I can get it smoother and I won’t let it develop longer than 4 hours again.

I wanted to like this. I will say it was very easy to apply and wash off but I can just never do self tanning right no matter what I do. And I always look orange or dirty.

LeahJ - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
This product works great! The average time to leave it on is between 4-6 hours, I’ve left it on for around 8 now and the color has developed nicely. I used the btan mitt with this mousse to apply. 4 hours is not enough time for the color to develop in my opinion. You do not need a lot of the mousse, but be thorough putting it on and make sure you get everywhere or you will have some splotchy spots. I am usually very pale this time of year, and now look like I have a natural tan. No orangey color to it

This product did not give me any color. I applied after a shower, hours later I couldn't tell I had applied anything. Reapplied 2 coats before bed, and had the slightest color, very disappointing, save your money and buy another brand.

I got the Dark Mousse and it does NOT give you even a tint of tan, I am 1/4 of a shade darker than my pale winter skin. I’m hoping I got a bad batch because I usually love Tanologist products but I was so disappointed with this one.

Tanologist dark mousse - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
*Non transferable mousse!!! (unless you sweat before rinsing) *Customizable color without streaks! (if necessary, allow mousse to dry 15 min or longer before applying next layer) *dries without leaving your skin sticky! (after approx. 45min-1hr) in my experience any sooner it still eventually dries smoothly with no ick just uncomfortable if wearing regular clothing until dry. *color is gradual, leading up to natural looking tan for noticeable change! (approx. 8-10hr) *no mess, minimal maintenance & a good 4-6 days without looking uneven in areas depending on your skincare/hygiene routine! (exfoliate, moisturize, repeat) *unbeatable price! (several+ applications depending on your preferred maintenance, & applications per session) *beginner friendly

Perfect sun kissed tan!! Love love the color this product gives off. It’s really easy to apply even with it being clear. I just use a tanning mitt to apply it and rub it in in circular motions and it turns out even and perfect every time! Looks so beautiful against all the bright spring/summer clothing 😍 Highly recommend!

I use this about once a week. I love the natural color is creates. Not many people notice in the best way, but honestly, it’s noticeable for me knowing how light my natural color skin is. I don’t have to use a lot to get the color I’m looking to achieve. My only complaint, is now sticky/itchy it feels before washing it off. I try to keep it on about 4 hours (it said this on the original bottle I bought, then changed the directions and doesn’t have a time frame listed on my newest bottle). The smell is not the greatest either. Smells like a spray tan at the salon.

Breezy - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
New to self tanning, so I don’t have much to compare it to. But this blended really nicely onto the skin. It didn’t come out blotchy or patchy. I definitely noticed a deeper color the next day (even after showering 2 hours after application). I wouldn’t recommended using it on your face- 2days later I broke out into tiny white bumps where I applied it to my face.

KK - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Very light coverage, so left hands and feet looking natural. Might need two coats, but afraid of the orange tone showing too much. Price is great. I love loving tan for the deep natural color. This one was a little orangey. But at $18 vs $60 its a steal. I love that it is clear. I hate looking like an Oompa Loompa while the tan develops under the color guide. I don’t think it’s patchy, I think you need a little more experience with applying a clear formula. I’ll stick with Loving tan for times I need to the color to look it’s best. I’ll use this as an everyday tan because of the price.
