We usually block out a substantial chunk of time every few weeks if we plan on self tanning at home, but it doesn’t always have to be a long, drawn-out process. There will always be some level of planning ahead required, but with the proper product, you don’t need to spend hours waiting to score a sun-kissed glow.
In fact, with this b.tan tanning mousse, it only takes approximately nine minutes to elevate your aesthetic with a hint of color so you don’t appear as pale! This is a seriously epic (and time-saving) product, especially for anyone who’s in a rush to get ready for an event.
This lightning-fast express tanning mousse may be the quickest self tanner we’ve come across on the crowded market. Interested in how it works? All you have to do is apply it evenly with a tanning mitt and wait for nine minutes until rinsing it off in the shower. That’s literally it — no waiting for up to eight hours until you can rinse the product off! Even better? Although you are technically washing off the initial layer of self tan, it will still develop and get deeper over the next 12 hours. Just make sure that you’re not using any skin-stripping soaps — it’s all about lukewarm water only for the rinse-off process.
Before you apply this mousse, it’s a wise idea to exfoliate the skin so you have a totally smooth canvas to work with — and using a bit of lotion on the elbows, ankles, knees and wrists is always recommended. But even with these additional prep steps, the time required for this self tanner to take hold is a fraction of how long you would have to spend with an alternative option. If you’re in a huge hurry and simply must upgrade your tan before a particular occasion (or even if you’re just an impatient self tanner), this mousse was totally made for you!
