How To Use

Get the best tan you can by first prepping your skin. By this we mean exfoliating and moisturizing any dry patches before tanning, this will give you an even tan and glow! 

Pump the mousse directly onto the dry tanning mitt and apply to the skin in sweeping motions, making sure you cover all areas – you’ll see the product as you rub it over your skin, which makes this part much easier! Use it sparingly on your elbows, hands, knees, wrists and face for a natural-looking tan.

The tan will develop in 2 hours, after which you rinse off the excess and pat your skin dry. If you want a darker tan, apply another layer. You must use a mitt to apply the mousse, rather than bare hands.

Things to be aware of:

Moisturize regularly to make the most of your tan.

Do not apply to broken or irritated skin.

Avoid contact with eyes, hair and fabrics.

This doesn’t contain any sunscreen, so we advise you to wear SPF with this product.

No Palm Oil

Many skincare products list palm oil, or its derivatives, in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in any form in ours, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products.

Packaging/Material

Mousse:

Container - 100% PCR plastic - recyclable
Pump - not recyclable
Lid - virgin plastic - recyclable

We have used 100% PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic for the bottle. PCR plastic is plastic that’s already in the world – it might previously have been a water bottle or a milk carton, for example.

By using PCR plastic, it reduces the reliance on fossil fuels. The carbon footprint of manufacturing 100% PCR is 60% lower than virgin plastic.

PCR can be recycled and used again, and it reduces landfill dumping and reuses recovered plastics.

We are working closely with our manufacturing partner to offer refills of the Mousse with the idea that you keep the pump to reuse with the refill.

Mitt:

Velour (Polyester) - 70%
Sponge (Polyurethane) - 25%
TPU film (Thermoplastic polyurethanes) - 5%

FAQs
  • What’s the difference between using the Tanning Mousse over the Drops?

Our Self-Tan Drops mean you are in control of the color you want to go and it is more of a gradual tan, whether that be a couple of drops for a little glow, or more for a deeper tan. They are also colorless and develop between 2-6 hours. You can use them on the face and body.

With our Tanning Mousse, it works in the same way and it still looks completely natural, but it is an instant color and it takes you straight to a medium tan. If you prefer a darker tan, then double it up. It is a little different in the sense that you apply it with a mitt. It takes 2 hours to develop and then you can wash off any excess if you wish with warm water, leaving you with a glowing tan - the natural DHA only needs 2 hours to develop on your skin so you can shower after this. You can also see the color when applying the Mousse. 

They both have the same principle – no sticky feeling, a quick dry formula, develops in 2 hours with a natural glow which works with your skin!

  • Can I use the Self-Tan Mousse on my face as well as body?

Yes of course, we’d recommend applying a small amount to the face. If you’d prefer to be more in control of your tan, then we’d recommend using our Self-Tan drops. With these you can use less drops for a little glow or add more for a deeper tan.

  • Is the tan visible as I apply the Mousse?

Yes, you’ll be able to see where the mousse has been applied. We always recommend starting from the bottom and working your way up so that you don’t miss anywhere.

  • Can I use the Tanning Mousse while pregnant?

According to the NHS it's generally considered safe to use fake tan products during pregnancy. The active ingredient in fake tan - dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a non-toxic substance. It can’t penetrate further than the top layer of the skin and it is not absorbed into the body.  

  • How long will my tan last?

Generally, it will last about 5 days, but It really depends on a number of things, such as: your exfoliating routine; your skin type; and your individual cellular renewal – the older you are, the longer the cell turnover. 

  • Can I suntan whilst wearing Lucy Bee Tanning Mousse?

Whilst using a fake tan product, you can still tan naturally when in the sun. Fake tans do not produce a skin-protecting barrier like sunscreens, so tanning naturally can still occur. 

Please note these do not contain SPF or sun protection so it is important to also use an SPF.

  • How long does the Tanning Mousse take to develop?

It develops in 2 hours. 

  • What color will I go?

It really depends on your skin type. The more Mousse you use, the darker the tan. The beauty of self-tanning is that you can control how much you apply to your skin, and therefore the depth of the tan. We've added a few functional ingredients to gain a natural looking color. The key one is erythrulose, a natural keto-sugar which takes part in Maillard’s reaction and leads to the formation of brownish polymers. It balances out the orange tones created by DHA (a color additive), giving a deep, even and natural long-lasting tan. 

  • Are there other options  than medium?

Our medium tanning mousse covers many skin colors.  If you find you want a deeper tan after the initial layer then you can build it up with more mousse.

  • How does fake tan work? What is the reaction that creates tanned skin?

Sunless tanners contain dihydroxyacetone- commonly known as DHA. DHA molecules combine with the amino acids in the top layer of your skin to cause a chemical reaction which forms brown-colored melaninoids. It is well known as Maillard reaction.  

The individual cocktail of amino acids in the skin determines the tanning effect, that’s why each individual tans differently.  

  • What is DHA?

DHA is the standard self-tanning agent for all types of cosmetic products and has been the most common active agent used over the past 70 years. It is a solely natural reaction of DHA with the amines, peptides and free amino acids in a Maillard reaction (independent of UV rays) – this means it reacts with the top layer of the skin to tan. The benefit of using tanning mousse is that you can achieve a sun-kissed glow without damaging your skin with harmful UV rays.  

  • Will the tan transfer to my clothes?

Whilst the product is sinking in and working its magic it is best to wear loose clothing and avoid any lighter colors to reduce the risk of the tan transferring!  

  • What is the fragrance of the Tanning Mousse?

It has a tropical fragrance. 

  • Self-tanning versus natural tanning?

When you sunbathe, UV rays cause the skin to increase its production of the protective pigment melanin, which manifests itself as a tan. Tan is actually a sign of skin cell damage, which can increase the risk of skin cancer and accelerate skin aging. Using a self-tanner is always a safer option than traditional sun tanning as it can give your skin a tanned look without exposing it to harmful ultraviolet rays. 

  • What is the 7% of non-natural ingredients in the tanning mousse? 

This is preservatives which protect products from harmful microbial contamination, antioxidants and stabilizers. You can find most of these ingredients in nature and they are synthetized in the laboratory to get a pure and unique molecule. 

  • Why use Lucy Bee Coconut Water in the tanning products

Coconut water is a great water alternative with additional skin-moisturizing benefits.  

  • Will the tan wash off in the shower?

The Tanning mousse isn’t a wash-off tan. Instead, your tan will slowly wear off over a few days – the exact number of days depends on your cleansing/bathing routine, your skin type and your own individual cellular renewal. Generally speaking, the tan will last about 5 days. 

  • Can men use this?

Yes, they can. The Mousse works with your natural skin tone and is designed to be unisex.

  • Why is it better to use a Mitt to apply the Mousse than using my hands?

Using a tanning mitt helps to make sure the tanning mousse is applied evenly and streak-free.

Also, our Tanning Mousse is visible as you apply it to your skin and develops a deeper tan over 2 hours. So, to avoid staining your hands, we recommend using a tanning mitt to apply the mousse

  • How do I clean my Tanning Mitt?

Rinse the mitt with warm, soapy water or machine wash on a warm setting. 

Leave it to dry naturally as it’s not suitable for use in a tumble dryer. Ensure the mitt is completely dry before using again.

Any staining on the mitt from the mousse is to be expected.

Natural tan on fair skin

I have naturally fair skin and I was very impressed by the colour of this tan. It blended evenly, didn't streak and gave a natural tan. What I found even more impressive was how well it lasted and faded evenly over 5 days. Perfect summer tan.

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, Claire. We are so happy that you enjoy using the Lucy Bee mousse and super soft mitt. Our self-tan mousse contains natural DHA which works with your skin tone to give an all-over, natural glow. It is great to know that you find this easy to apply, with an even colour. Thank you for your review, Rian

Amazing!!

Until I took the plunge and bought this product I was a 42 year old self-tan virgin. This product is amazing from start to finish and never did I think I would be able to apply tan at home. It smells amazing and the look is so natural.
Thank you yet again for another amazing product. Can't wait to see what you do next..... xx

So easy to apply, smells amazing

The mouse is so easy to apply especially with the tanning mit. It drys quickly and washes to show a lovely glow. I’m not very good at applying fake tan and still need to practice but this mouse is definitely the easiest one I’ve used and achieved the best results, my friends all loved the glow too

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us. We are so happy that you found the self-tan mousse easy to apply, and that you are loving the natural glow!

Love this!

I'm not a great fake tanner but it looked great in the promo and with the lack of holidays this year, I wanted to try. Its super easy to use, provides a great natural colour and best thing is, it doesn't smell of biscuits, in fact it smells amazing for a fake tan. Use of mitt was very helpful Completely converted - a great product, many thanks!

Thank you Justine, it is wonderful to hear how much you are enjoying the Lucy Bee self-tan mousse and super soft mitt! I agree, it is great to be able to tan without smelling like biscuits - the tropical fruit scent reminds me of being on holiday! Our mousse is Vegan, Cruelty Free, and palm oil free – ethical beauty at its best. Thank you for your review, Rian

Glowing

Used this for the first time today. Firstly it smelt amazing. Tinted too so you can see where you’ve applied it. Easy application with the Lucy Bee mitt. It developed after a couple of hours into a natural golden tan. Even my hands looked amazing. I applied a little moisturiser prior to application to my knees and feet. I have seamless colour that looks like I’ve been to Dubai. Considering I was supposed to be sunning myself on the beach there this weekend , the Lucy Bee tan is definitely the next best thing. Absolutely 100% recommend this product. I will not use another fake tan.

Thank you Karen! It is fantastic to hear how much you are enjoying the Lucy Bee mousse and mitt. We are so pleased that you found this easy to apply, thank you for sharing your amazing feedback. Rian

Really impressed!

I purchased both the All Year Glow kit and the Tanning drops (as I wasn't keen on the idea of putting mousse onto my face!) and I love them both! This is the first time I've ever used fake tan other than using some tinted lotions in the past, but took the plunge after reading the reviews on here and I'm so glad I did. The tan looks really natural and glowy without looking like fake tan, I've had loads of compliments on how healthy I'm looking. The mitt is brilliant and really helps to apply the mousse evenly. I also love that the product dries fast so you can get dressed and on with your day before rinsing off.

Thank you very much for sharing your fantastic feedback with us, Rebecca. We are so happy that you are enjoying the Lucy Bee self-tan products, and the natural glow. It is great to hear that you found these easy to use! I agree, I love that they are quick drying and not sticky. Thank you for your review, Rian

Still waiting for item

Unfortunately I am still waiting for this product. I wanted it for an evening out with my friends whom I haven’t seen since August last year. Initially communication was ok as I was informed that the product would be delayed due to delivery issues yet two weeks have passed and I’m still waiting. Very disappointed especially after this product had been recommended.

We are so sorry to hear that you haven’t received your order yet and now that we’re aware of this we will chase UPS about it. Unfortunately, with the UPS system having been unreliable we had no way of knowing who’s orders had been delivered and whose not unless you’d let us know. I’d like to reassure you that once we know of any issues with an order we will always follow up on them straight away.

Generally we send orders out either the day they are placed or the next business day (Mon-Fri), and we then rely on the courier to deliver your order on time. Over the Bank Holiday we saw an unprecedented volume of orders and we sent yours out with UPS on 9th April. As mentioned in our emails last week, UPS have really let both you and us down with deliveries, and we’re doing all we can to resolve the issue.

I have informed my colleagues that your order is one that is missing, which means that they can now escalate it with our account manager with UPS and they will be in contact with you shortly

Really sorry again for the delay with your order, this really isn’t our usual service, and is not what we expect from UPS

Best wishes,

Daisy

My new favourite beauty product

I've never used any kind of fake tanning product ever and I'm in my 50's. I was impressed by how easy the self-tan is to apply with the mitt; how easy it is to get an even colour. I was so pleased with the result and had many nice comments over the weekend of how well I looked.

Thank you very much for sharing your fantastic feedback with us, Tessa. We are so happy that you are enjoying the Lucy Bee self-tan, and the natural glow! It is great to hear that you found this easy to use. Thank you for your review, Rian

Worried Tanner

I’ve dabbled with fake tan in the past but always been put off by the smell, the hassle and the dodgy colour - says more about my poor application technique!!
I’ve been stalking the tanning mousse for a while and finally took the plunge. It smells amazing, was dead easy to apply and left me with a super natural glow.
I was also really impressed by the way Lucy Bee handled the difficulties they had over the bank holiday weekend!

Hi Jen, thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us. It is fantastic to hear how much you are enjoying the self-tan mousse, and that you have found it easy to use. I agree, the scent is like a tropical holiday! Thank you for your review, Rian

Im converted!

This was my first time ever fake tanning, I have always been put off by the mess, the time, the smell and the streakiness. LucyBee tan is non of the above. It was so easy to apply, it took no time at all. The smell is actually lovely and I had no streaks.

I am very fair skinned and was worried I may look like an ompa lumpa but it looked so natural. I am so impressed and will definitely be ordering more!

Hi Lauren, thank you for taking the time to share your fantastic feedback with us. We are so happy that you are enjoying the Lucy Bee self-tan, and that you have found this easy to apply. I agree, it's so quick to apply and I love that it dries so fast. Thank you for choosing Lucy Bee as your first self-tan! Rian
