By dual-purpose we mean not only do our self tanners give you a natural, beautiful and safe sunless tan, they're also really great for your skin. You see, all of our self tanners contain proven cosmeceuticals that help moisturize, smooth, protect, repair and tighten your skin. So you're not only getting a really great self tanner, you're also getting a high-end skincare product. That's why we say our self tanners really are the best of both worlds!
This simply refers to how dark of a tan that particular self tanner will produce. So if you have a light skin tone and just want a healthy glow (or if you want a buildable, gradual tan), our "light" formula will work great for you. If you have a medium-to-dark skin tone, and want a darker tan, then "dark" may be the right choice. Finally, if you prefer to look really bronzed, then our "ultra dark" shade is definitely for you! Because everyone has unique skin that responds differently to self tanners, you may have to experiment a bit to find the perfect shade for your skin.
Although you can use a self tanner designed for the body on your face, we suggest using our specially-formulated face products. The skin on the face and neck area tends to be thinner, and more sensitive. To account for this, our face self tanners are slightly thicker (like a face cream) and more moisturizing. They're also non-comedogenic, so they won't clog pores or cause acne.
The main differences between our lotions and mousses are the texture and the color guide. Our lotions have a thin, smooth consistency whereas our mousses have a fluffy, foamy texture to them. Our mousses also have a color guide in them so you can see where you're applying them. The lotions have no color guide in them. Both can be applied with the tanning mitt, smell amazing and produce that gorgeous, natural-looking tan that Tanceuticals is known for!
To get the best result from our self tanners, ideally you would leave them on for 6-8 hours. Which means applying them before going to bed is usually the best way to go. That way, our self tanners will have time to give you a beautiful, natural glow and our cosmeceuticals will have time to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Yes, our products should generally be used within 6 months of purchase. Although they may last longer, it's best to use them within that time frame for optimal results. We don't use any harsh preservatives-- so our product is not meant to last for years on end :)
Yes, this is completely normal. We don't use a lot of harsh preservatives, so our lotions tend to be a little "thinner' than most. And because we use natural ingredients, the look and feel of our lotions will vary a bit from batch-to-batch. The benefit of this is they spread very easily, aren't sticky and dry faster than just about any other self tanner out there! To prevent them from getting too "liquidy", make sure you use them within 6 months of purchase.
That said, if you feel your bottle is too watery, just send it back and we'll send you out a new one!
Yes, the more you're in the pool/ocean, the quicker your tan will fade as the chlorine/salt will naturally exfoliate your skin. So you may have to reapply it more often than usual. The water shouldn't make your tan fade unevenly or splotchy however.
Yes, self tanning products are universally accepted as safe and effective by both the FDA and EMA (European Medicines Agency). DHA, the main ingredient in all self tanners, has been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA since 1973 (a 40+ year track record!). In addition, a number of prestigious and well-respected medical organizations recommend self tanners over sun and tanning bed exposure. Some of these organizations include the American Academy of Dermatology, Mayo Clinic, Skin Cancer Foundation and the American Medical Association.
For any additional concerns, please consult your personal doctor or medical professional.
