tanning tips


  • exfoliate and moisturize

    24 hours before you apply your self tan, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem areas

  • wax or shave at least 48 hours prior to treatment.

    this allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.

  • don’t apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of application.

    this allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.


  • wear dark loose clothing

    tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. wear loose fitting shoes.

  • moisturize everyday after applying your self tan

    or consider using a gradual tan so that your tan is continually bring topped up an dyour tan lasts longer.

  • after day 5, exfoliate with a soft body polish on a daily basis

    this help your skin absorb even more moisturizer and keep it looking and feeling gorgeous. This also helps the tan fade naturally, rather than in patches.

This is my first try at a fake tan at home and I AM IN LOVE No need to try other products. This went on easily, dried without streaks and looks very natural. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Love this product!!

I am a very very pale skinned person and needed some color but I have never used self tanner before of any kind so I was a little skeptical but I decided to go for it and buy the Violet based Love at First tan I did double coat it and I slept in it for 8 hours overnight before I rinsed off but the color results were really pretty and I did buy a tanning mitt which also was really helpful and I bought the tan eraser which was helpful when trying to remove the old tan to do a new one definitely will buy again!!

Best tanner!

I love that it doesn’t smell and it is easy to apply without any streaks! I recommend getting the glove with the tanner too!

I purchased this one as well as “I love myself more tanned” but haven’t tried it yet. So far this is my favorite tan especially for the $15 price tag! Regardless of what tanning mousse says I almost always leave it on overnight. I left this one on for about 5 hrs and rinsed with lukewarm water. The tan is amazing & so natural looking, especially for someone as pale as I am!!

First time self tanning

This was my first time literally ever using a self tanner. when i saw the violet base option i just new THIS IS THE ONE. and i wasn’t wrong this self tanner was just so easy to use and it came out so flawless and natural looking. i was extremely pale and using this as directed. (only wearing for an hour and then washing it off) gave me a very natural tan. sort of like a i just went on spring break tan. loved it will buy again and again.

good times + b.tan lines
