    Self Tanning Back Applicator

    • Polyester icon

      POLYESTER (Polyethylene terephthalate)

      Durable and made to last, this material allows the applicator to retain its shape through multiple washes

    70% polyester + 30% sponge

    Wash that bod!

    Before you start tanning, jump in the shower. Add a small amount of moisturizing body wash and scrub down your body. Gently massage your skin in a circular motion, paying attention to your back. BONUS POINTS: Use a shower back scrubber to ensure your back is ready to rock that self tanner! Wash off and dry your body completely. 

    Apply self tanner and get shimmying!

    Slip your hand into one of the handles of your Back Self Tanner Applicator. Add Self Tanner lotion to your applicator and place your other hand into the other strap. Gently massage tanner on your back by shifting the moving your arms back and forth, causing the applicator to slide across your back. When your tan is complete, rinse out your back applicator and hang it to dry in a well-ventilated area. Wash your hands thoroughly. If any tanner ended up on them while you were rinsing your applicator, it may lead to stains. Step back and admire your gorgeous glow! 

    Keep that tan glowing!

    Make sure to keep your back hydrated by daily applying a natural lotion. The more hydrated your skin, the longer that gorgeous tan will last!

    • Think a super-soft back scrubber minus the exfoliation. It's a long strip of mitt material with 2 handles for pulling the applicator across your back. It won't streak, spot, drip, or absorb all of your self tanning lotion. 

    • Nope! Our self tanner back applicator works best with a lotion-based tanner.


    • We recommend exfoliating in the shower first before you even start the self tanning process. Then, apply your body lotion to the more porous spots, such as your hands, elbows, knees, ankles and feet. Apply a small amount of self tanner back applicator. Hold a handle on each side and glide the applicator across your back until you've evenly covered all of your skin. For best results, apply lotion daily (you can even use the back applicator for that too) so that your skin stays tan longer.

    • Well, it depends on how well you take care of them. Rinse each mitt out thoroughly after each application, and then let them dry completely in a well-ventilated space before putting them away. With consistent care your mitts can last for months or even years.

    • Yes please! Self tanner does not provide any protection from the sun's rays, so it's important to keep wearing your sunblock. SPF up, babe! ☀️

    • While all of our formulations (think Natural Self Tanner and Mineral Body Sunscreen) are made right here in the United States, we sometimes outsource the production of manufactured goods internationally.

      We do this very consciously and with care to ensure we use reputable, ethical, and eco-conscious manufacturers who mirror our company’s values. In the case of our self tanner back applicators, we partner with an ethical manufacturer in China that supports the local workforce and uses high-quality materials. If you have more questions about our production process, give us a holler at info@beautybyearth.com! 💕
