How to Use Self Tanner – 8 Tips You May Not Know


  1. I have a couple questions. Is the color buildable? Does this wash off easily? I use this as my face tanner and moisturizer and whenever I wash my face at night I think it all comes off which is sad but it’s a really good moisturizer and is the only product I found that doesn’t break me out.

    1. Hi Emily,
      Yes, it is buildable! If you’re asking if it washes off after the day after, no not really. It interacts with your skin to create the bronze hue, so as long as your skin isn’t being exfoliated, your color should last between 4-8 days. I usually scrub my face with our facial scrub and then apply face self tanner. That gives my skin the longest amount of time to glow before cell turnover. Let me know if there’s anything else I can answer!

    2. Hi Emily, Sorry we missed your question! Let me break down my answer in a few peices:
      1: Yes, it’s totally buildable. In my opinion, that’s one of the best parts of our self tanner. You can go as light or dark as you want! Easy peasy.

      2: If you’re asking “does it wash off easily right after application” – yes it does. Please don’t wash any area where you applied tanner for at least 15 minutes after applying. For best results, I recommend applying AFTER you’ve exfoliated, showered, and dried off. Apply all over then hit the sack! In the morning, you’ll be a glowing beach babe!
      However, if your question is “does it wash off easily hours or days after application” no, because our tanner only needs 15 minutes with your skin for glowy perfection to appear within 6-8 hours. That’s because our tanner is made with DHA (derived from natural sugars) and causes your skin to darken without dying it. You can wash your face everyday after that first 15 minute wait time and you’ll be A-ok! Again, if you’re going for darker, though, leave on over night.

      3: I’m so glad that it doesn’t cause breakouts for you! Our Face Self Tanner is non-comedogenic (that’s a fancy term for “shouldn’t clog pores our cause breakouts”), so if you want to be extra cautious with that beautiful visage, try it for your face. It’s the exact same formula as our body self tanner minus the coconut oil.

      I hope this helps!

  2. What is the best way to apply the face self-tanner? At night after I wash my face? Do I apply my moisture after? Help!

    1. Hi Theresa! The best way to apply the face self tanner is after you’ve washed your face and moisturized. I would also recommend exfoliating your face as well for a longer-lasting tan and better color payoff. Hope this helps!
