There are so many different options for sunless tanning on the market today. It is hard to know which product would be best for you. Each product has its pros and cons, but it is important to look for the advantages, disadvantages and honest reviews from first hand users. These opinions can help highlight the personal experiences when using sunless tanning products. Since we are constantly asked, “Which sunless tanning product is best for me?” here is an overview of sunless tanning options you will commonly see so you can decide which is going to be best for you.
Which is Better – A Spray or a Mist?
Solrae now carries both an aerosol tanning spray (Instant Airbrush Self Tanner) and a Tanning Water Face Mist, the newest product in our Summer 2021 collection. Both products are easy to apply to the face, but have their differences.
Solrae’s Tanning Water Face Mist is a gradual tan, rather than an instant tan like the Instant Airbrush Self Tanner. Both ensure a bronze, natural looking complexion, but one is quicker in appearance than the other.
Additionally, a mist is a more refreshing feel and Solrae’s Tanning Water Face Mist is enriched with antioxidant-rich jojoba oil to help protect skin from harsh environmental aggressors, while deeply hydrating and smoothing skin. The Instant Airbrush Self Tanner has a hydrating paraben-free formula that is perfect for all skin types and tones.
Which is Better – A Cream or Lotion?
A cream based sunless tanning product is going to feel thicker than a lotion-based product.
Both are great for targeted application. Using either of these products on knees or elbows will help with an even looking sunless tan. Additionally, most sunless creams and lotions offer a moisturizing added benefit to their formula.
And finally, a cream-based formula is going to be felt for longer on the body versus the lotion. Lotions are often absorbed into the skin quicker than a cream, which are typically meant to last longer on the skin.
Solrae offers a Gradual Tanning Lotion that is streak-free and specially formulated for all skin types. Many people with oily skin tend to stay away from creams and lotions, but Solrae has found the perfect formula for them!
Which is Better – A Gel or Mousse?
Sunless tanning gels and mousses are quickly gaining popularity. Both offer a sunless tanning appeal but are two different formulas. They were put together in this battle of which is better because they are typically the two that we get asked the most questions on since mousse is most popular, and gel is only just gaining attention in the market.
Sunless tanning gels are lighter and typically less sticky than a mousse. It is almost gradual – you can use it once a day until you achieve the tone you prefer.
A sunless tanning mousse is easy to see where it is being applied. You will be instantly gratified because the tan appears right away, no waiting around for color to show. Unlike the gel, mousse cannot be applied daily, so you should wait at least 5 days in between applications.
Getting a sun-kissed glow doesn’t have to come from being out in the sun frequently. Those harmful rays should be a thing of your past. Not only are they bad for you, but they age your skin prematurely. Skip sunbathing and go straight to sunless tanning.
