LOVING TAN 2 HR EXPRESS SELF TANNING MOUSSE REVIEW : IS IT REALLY THE BEST SELF TANNER?


allure


Is Loving Tan the best self tanner out there? This brand is probably the most talked about self tanner brand on Youtube. Many popular social media influencers have been affiliates for Loving Tan, which brings up the question: do they like it or just promoting it for financial purposes or is it actually worth the hype?
I ,obviously, am not sponsored or affiliated with this brand or any brand for that matter. This is my honest review of Loving Tan 2 Hour Express Medium. Below are my pros and cons, similar product comparison and final thoughts

Pros:
-Great color similar to that of when I get a spray tan. not orange, I kinda look like my last name ‘should’ actually be Suarez
-Shipped super quick.ordered it on 7.13.17 received it on 7.16.17
-Dries fast
-You can rinse off in as soon as 2 hours.
-Didn’t transfer to my white sheets overnight
-Comes in different shades and sizes

Cons:
-Doesn’t come with an application mitt. I already have 4 others so that wasn’t a huge deal
-The packaging says it “smells delicious” I can assure you it smells like a normal higher end self tanner which is not delicious. But it could smell worse!
-MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT: 2 hour express……BUT LIKE HOW? The tan takes 12 hours to fully develop. I assume they mean you can rinse off after two hrs. which is better than the average of 8 hours but still kinda annoying.

SIMILAR PRODUCT COMPARISON:

FINAL THOUGHTS:
I do get a darker and more olive color with 1 coat of Loving Tan vs 1 coat of Glow with the Faux. I am very happy with the outcome. Is it worth the hype? I am going to say no just because it isn’t THE BEST, however it does stack up well to its competitors. I think people go crazy for it because it is marketed with the impression that you’ll have a tan in 2hrs, which isn’t the case. If I didn’t have that expectation from the beginning I would have like it alot more. but over all Loving Tan does get a thumbs up from me!
