How do I choose between tanning lotions and mousse? - Lusso Tan

It’s really a case of finding the best formula for you, your skin and your schedule!

These days we are blessed to have options, with the most effective tanning formulas sinking quickly into skin and, crucially, creating a natural-looking glow, rather than anything streaky or unbelievable. There are also formulas designed for different skin tones, to lend a little extra colour to pale complexions, or deepen and add glow to darker skins.

While rich moisturising formulas such as The Bloom Collective Tanning Balm are great for those who like a sunless tan that applies like a much-loved moisturiser (great for daytime), those who like to see exactly where they’ve applied will love the classic mousse-and-mitt method.

When looking for the sunless tan formula, consider your personal preferences, and the occasion you’re preparing for. Need a glow fast, but want to wash it off later? No problem. Want the results to be long-lasting? Covered. Do you prefer a sunless tan is has all the benefits for a moisturiser? We got you.
