Loving Tan Review & Tips

Summer is here! But my tan has been lacking. I want to lay out 24/7 to get that perfectly bronzed look yet I never do. I'm usually chasing Grey or sitting with London so my tan has been pretty limited to my forehead and shoulders. Any other moms have this?! I've heard so much about Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse. I've watched 20+ tutorials easily and every single time the tan comes out so natural looking. I haven't tried a self tanner since about freshman year of high school when I turned myself into a teenage oompa loompa. With that said, even though I'd ordered the mousse I still was very skeptical.
I ordered the Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Dark as a value pack which came with this applicator mitt. Personally, I feel prettier and more confident when I am tan. Below I've listed pros & cons and also some tips for preparation, application and getting your color to last longer!

Pros
-Contains an instant bronzer so you can easily see where you have applied the mousse, where you haven't and allows you to smooth out any patchy or streaky areas
-Drys quickly! All mousses dry withing 60 seconds of application
-Has a light, floral scent.
-All natural ingredients!  All of the mouses have a hydrating aloe vera base, contain naturally derived ingredients and are enriched with vitamin extracts and antioxidants. It is also free of para bans and alcohol.
-Contains DHA, which is incredible for your skin!
-Application lasts for about 10 days
-Each bottle of Mousse allows for 5-10 full body applications
-Still looks natural when fading
-Price!

Cons
-Needs to be reapplied, will not stay on your skin for more than two weeks
-You can't use exfoliants or some oils after you apply the mousse or it will remove the color
-You must avoid sweating and any water for 6 hours to allow your tan to develop completely. (this does not apply to the 2hr express mousse)
-Avoid swimming in water containing chlorine because it will remove your tan

Tips & Tricks
-Shower, shave and exfoliate thoroughly before applying mousse.
-Use a thick, hydrating lotion on any and all areas of your body that are dry (ex; wrists, elbows, knees, etc.) I also applied my lotion to my entire face to ensure an even color.
-Don't apply mousse directly to your hands or feet. Apply mousse to desired areas or your entire body then use the excess mousse remaining on the mitt to apply to your hands and feet.
-Using a clean foundation brush to blend each area you apply the mousse to can be very helpful. If you don't have one, don't worry, the mitt will do just fine.
-Apply lotion daily to prolong tan.

All in all I love this product. I am extremely happy with my results. The packaging is very attractive, shipping was extremely fast and free! Best of all I'm not orange in the slightest bit! My coloring looks like I've been laying on the beach! I discovered this product first by following Jaclyn Hill on youtube. If you are purchasing just the mousse alone you can enter code 'jaclyn' for a free exfoliator mitt which would be helpful for exfoliating before application and removing excess tan between applications! Be sure to let me know if you try it!
