Review: Loving Tan Bronzing Mousse in Medium

Personally, I love a good tan.  It makes you look healthier and slimmer.  However, I’m not a fan of tanning beds or laying out in the sun since it’s so harmful to your skin and your health.  A great alternative to achieving a nice tan is using self-tanning products.  I recently tried Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Medium and it’s a great product.  Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse is available in three shades, Medium, Dark, and Ultra Dark.  As with all products it has pros and cons.


  • Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse has a nice scent.  Oftentimes self-tanning products have an unpleasant smell but this one is nice.
  • It provides a natural-looking tan.  Some self-tanning products give you an orange look, but this one provides a natural looking olive color because it contains DHA and Erythrulose.
  • It’s long lasting.  I applied this on Saturday and it has lasted five days so far.  Supposedly it will last up to 10 days if you keep your skin moisturized.
  • It dries fairly quickly after application.
  • It’s Organic and contains natural ingredients.  It’s also free of parabens and alcohol.
  • It contains an instant bronzer that gives an instant color boost and acts as a fool proof color guide to show where the product has been applied.


  • It doesn’t come with a mitt. (**However, use the code beautybycassie and receive a free mitt with your purchase)
  • You have to move pretty quickly when applying the product because it dries fairly fast and can leave streaks if you’re not careful.
  • It can feel a bit tacky after application but it goes away within a few minutes.
  • You have to avoid water or perspiration for six hours after application so the tan can develop.
  • To maintain the tan you have to avoid swimming pools.

As you can see Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse gave me a natural looking bronzed look.

Overall, I do enjoy this product.  It’s not my favorite self-tanner just because you have to work quickly during application and I’ve gotten better results with Tarte’s Brazilliance™ skin rejuvenating maracuja face and body self tanner but it does a nice job nonetheless.
