Using a high-quality mitt is the best way to achieve a flawless look. Our luxurious mitt has a plush finish and delivers an even, streak-free tan that glides on easily.
If you’re an experienced tan user, you’ll know that your hands aren’t the best tools for applying tanning foam. Fingers leave streaks, the foam gets applied disproportionately, and your hands end up much darker than the rest of your body. That’s why we’re convinced that tanning mitts are the best way to get an even tan – so much so that we designed one ourselves, available to buy online.
The spongy nature of the self-tanning mitt is how it distributes the product evenly. Using a generous amount of the tanning foam, move the mitt in gentle circular motions over your body. For areas that are hard to reach by yourself, ask a friend or family member to help you out.
With this spongy mitt on your side, self-tanning is easy. To distribute the product evenly, squirt 2-3 pumps of your product to the tanning mitt and start moving it in gentle circular motions over your body. We suggest starting at the top of your shoulders and working down your body, making sure to put the bulk of the product on the areas you want to be the darkest, such as your arms, legs and chest. If you run into any tricky areas, like elbows or knees, switch to long, thick strokes to blend the product in.
If you get any patchy bits or big blobs of product, don’t worry! Keep blending the self-tan into the surrounding areas to even it out, or dab the excess tan with a damp cloth or cotton pad. When it’s dry, you can go over that area with your tanning mitt again.
Once you’ve self-tanned your body, use the residue on the mitt to tan the back of your hands, the tops and sides of your feet and your face. The reason why we save these areas for last is because you don’t need too much product to get a golden glow.
By following the tips above and working methodically so you cover your entire body. Luckily, our fake tans have a guide colour, so you can clearly see what areas still need a little love.
For the best results, give your tan a few minutes to dry before getting dressed, and avoid getting wet until it’s time to rinse it off. That means no sweating or showering if you can help it! But if you do get wet, apply more tanning product to those areas so you end up with a streak-free finish.
They’re the perfect pair, and a true love story! The Luxe Tanning Mitt is reusable, machine-washable, and can be used to apply all types of tanning formulas, including mousses and face waters.
The microfibre self-tanning mitt is made with natural materials and glides onto the skin for fuss-free application. Both newbies and seasoned self-tanners love it!
