Tan Ceuticals: Self-tanning Mousse


Hi guys, I am so excited to share with you my experience with Tan Ceuticals! As you know, I am from Brazil and I love to get out and tan in the sun. But because our winters here in the Midwest are so darn long, I can’t keep that nice tan all year long. Plus, let’s face it, it’s not good for your skin anyways to be exposed to that much sun. So what’s the alternative? Self-tanning lotions. In this case, Tan Ceuticals! I’ve partnered with Tan Ceuticals to try their CC Self-tanning mousse. I got the face and body mousse in dark, and also the mitten to help apply the mousse more evenly.

Gente, hoje eu tenho um produto super legal para mostrar para vocês. Como vocês sabem eu moro nos Estados Unidos, o inverno aqui é muito longo e não da para tomar sol o ano inteiro. Aliás, muito sol não faz bem para pele, né! Então, qual a alternativa? Loção bronzeadora, neste caso a Tan Ceuticals. Em parceria com a Tan Ceuticals eu vou contar para vocês minha experiência com o produto e como usá-lo.

Now, let’s talk about the steps of how to apply the product. Shall we?

Vamos falar da aplicação?

  1. PREPARE YOUR SKIN. You want your skin to be clean and free of dead skin; so shower and exfoliate your skin with a sugar based-scrub. Also, you should shave any unwanted hair before applying the tanning mousse. It is recommended to shave 12-24 hours before applying the product.
    PREPARE A PELEA pele tem que estar limpa e sem pele morta; portanto,  é recomendável tomar banho e esfoliar a pele antes de aplicar a mousse bronzeadora. Além disso, raspe todos os pelos indesejáveis e aplique a mousse depois de 12-24 horas.
  2. APPLY MOISTURIZER ON DRY PARTS OF YOUR BODY. Apply moisturizer on feet, knees and elbows. If those areas are dry, they will look darker if no moisturizer is applied.
    APLIQUE LOÇÃO HIDRATANTE NAS PARTES SECAS DO CORPO. Aplique loção hidratante nos cotovelos, pés, e joelhos. Se essas regiães do corpo estiverem secas, elas podem ficar mais escuras após a aplicação.
  3. WEAR A TANNING MITT. Protect your hand by wearing a tanning mitt for a smooth streak-free finish. However, don’t forget to apply the mousse on the top of your hand and between fingers. Do that last.
    USE LUVA. Proteja a mão usando uma luva para que ela não fique com riscos bronzeados. Não se esqueça de passar a mousse nas mãos e entre os dedos. Faça isso por último.
  4. WASH HANDS CAREFULLY. Use soap and water and wash your fingers and palms thoroughly.
    LAVE AS MÃOS COM CUIDADO. Use água e sabonete para lavar as palmas das mãos.
  5. LET IT DRY. Let the self tanner dry completely before putting on clothes.I recommend waiting between 10-15 min. It is recommended to apply the self tanner at night and put on loose clothes afterwards. In the morning you can shower and moisture to keep that sun kissed glowing skin.
    DEIXE SECAR. Deixe a pele secar totalmente antes de colocar a roupa por cima. Espere entre 10-15 minutos. É recomendado aplicar a loção bronzeadora à noite e colocar roupas arejadas e não apertadas em seguida. No dia seguinte, tome banho e hidrate a pele para aquele bronzeado lindo e dourado.


I encourage you to visit Tan Ceutical’s page for the “do’s” and “don’t’s.”

Now, I am excited to show you the results, so come back tomorrow to see the before and the after photos.

Agora, voltem amanhã para ver o resultado do bronzeado. Mostrarei o antes e depois da aplicação da mousse.

See you tomorrow,

  1. Awesome post, Gabrielle! I’m always on the hunt for a good self tanner. Even though my skin is already dark, self tanner really gives an amazing glow and covers up skin imperfections. I’m definitely going to check out Tan Ceuticals. Also, great tip about exfoliating. I find that makes all the difference in getting an even application!

    1. Thank you, Maya! Yes, the glow afterward was amazing! Yes, exfoliating before applying the lotion is a great way to prep your skin. 🙂

  2. I opened the mousse today & it had a greenish tint so I was hesitant to try. Is this normal? Should I shake the bottle before use?

    1. That’s weird. That didn’t happen to me. Maybe you can contact them? I always shake the bottle before I use 🙂
