Tanceuticals CC Self Tanning Body Lotion Reviews

    The Perfect Self Tanner :)

    I work in a dermatologist office and med spa where sun exposure is a big no-no. Because of that, we've offered literally dozens of higher-end self tanners to our patients over the last ten years or so. As such, I've literally tried more self tanners than I can count! Since we want the best for our patients, I'm in charge of researching and trying great new products. And after looking around onlin...read moree for awhile, I came across Tanceuticals CC Self Tanning Body Lotion. Even though it had tons of awesome reviews, I wanted to try it for myself before suggesting we stock it in our spa. I'm so glad I did... I ordered it on a Monday and by Thursday I received the package. Right away I loved the packaging. It's clean white and pink colors fit perfectly in a spa like ours :) Before I got home, I decided to open it just to see what it looked and smelled like. It looks like a very light taupe color and smells amazing! I kept opening it and smelling it throughout the day because it smells like delicious, tropical coconuts. Later that night I decided to give it a try. For application, I used latex gloves and the Body Buddy to help with my back. The first thing I noticed was how thin this lotion is. I actually prefer that as you don't have to use very much to get full coverage over your skin. It also makes it super easy to blend in. You don't have to sit there for an hour rubbing it in like with many self tanners. It also dries extremely fast. Again, I think that's because you only need a very thin layer. By the time I walked out of the bathroom, it had for the most part completely dried. Also, it didn't get all over my bathroom sink or towels, which is another major plus in my book. I hate how those thick, dark self tanners that come out like dirty mud get all over everything. Tanceuticals goes on clean and doesn't mess everything up. So fast forward an hour or so and my skin at that point felt great and smelled even better :) When I went to bed a few hours later, I noticed a little color but not much. The moment of truth arrived the next morning after about 7 hours of sleep. I woke up with an absolutely beautiful, gorgeous glowing tan!! At least on me, it looked extremely smooth and complimented my skin tone perfectly. For my hands and feet, I actually used just a dab mixed in with my regular moisturizer and that worked great. No problems there. The next morning I did notice a faint trace of "self tanner smell" but that didn't bother me as I always shower the next morning after applying self tanner. Once I did that, any smell from the product was completely gone. As a side note, I checked out my sheets after showering and i was happy to see that there wasn't any "rub-off". Very happy about that. Throughout the week my Tanceuticals tan maintained very well and started fading at about day 5. It came off pretty much like most high-end self tanners only this one lasted longer than most. After 6 days, I exfoliated and re-applied. Overall, to say I was happy with Tanceuticals would be an understatement. It works perfectly and has great ingredients. Plus it's certified by PETA as cruelty-free (I looked it up on PETA's website). After using it for a few weeks, I told our spa owner about it and she decided to order 50 bottles and sell it in our spa :) The feedback we've received from clients has been very positive as well. So after all this, I'd say Tanceuticals is one of the best self tanners I've ever used :) — 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Best I have ever used!

    This is the best self tanning lotion/cream I have ever used - including extremely expensive, designer tanners. It is smooth and airy, and it absorbs well without leaving you greasy or sticky. The smell is great (like tropical coconuts). It provides some of the smoothest, most natural color I've ever seen. It works best if you put it on right before bed. By morning, my tan is always streak-free and amazing :) — 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    The best!!!

    I came across Tanceuticals when searching for a self tanner that wasn't tested on animals and is cruelty-free. So when I finally ran out of the current self tanner I was using, I took the plunge and bought this one. When I first applied it, I noticed I didn't need to put as much on as I usually do with these products. It's very light and a little goes a long way. Plus it doesn't get all sticky lik...read moree many of them tend to do. So far so good. but the best part was when I woke up the next morning. THE COLOR WAS PERFECT! It's a natural-bronze color that was smooth and streak-free. It's soooo beautiful it's insane :) And there's no telltale DHA smell like with many other products. My skin also felt very moisturized which was a huge plus. I totally adore tanceuticals self tanner now :) — 4 months, 1 week ago
