Back in April I shared a blog post with my Self-Tanning Routine and did a tutorial on my Instagram Story here, both are still great resources and I would still recommend the products. That said, I have since changed up my at-home sunless tanning routine so, today I am going to walk you through the new process and products I use.
Before applying my any sunless tanning products I always recommend you exfoliate and moisturize your skin. Ideally this is done the night before or a few hours before to give your skin time to soak up the moisturizer. What I have been using and absolutely loving to exfoliate is the Hello Body Coco Glam Body Scrub. It smells so good, just like a tropical vacation a.k.a coconut. Then, after my shower, I follow up with the Coco Cream Body Butter that has the same delicious coconut scent. Also as an aside, on days when I’m taking photos I will use their Coco Slim Body Oil, it is amazing for dry skin and gives a really nice sheen to my skin.

Tan Luxe Wonder Oil – Start by rolling it all over one area of your body then use your other hand to rub it in. You want to make sure it gets into all the creases just like you would apply a body lotion. It’s really lightweight, it doesn’t smell and I have a really weird sense of smell so anything to strong I do not like. The most important part – Once you have applied this to your entire body and have rubbed it in you want to make sure you wash your hands immediately and really well or you will end up with crazy tan marks all over your hands and wrists.
Tan Luxe Face Drops – A little of this goes a long way! You will only need to use about 2-3 drops and will add it to your normal face moisturizer. Apply your moisturizer the same as you always do, but don’t forget about your ears and your neck. Once you’ve applied the moisturizer with the drops in it be sure to thoroughly wash your hands so you don’t end up with tan stains on them.
Tan Luxe Sleep Oil – This product is perfect for maintain that perfect tan and glow on your face. This overnight oil refreshes and visibly brightens your skin while you sleep. The oil reacts with the amino acids on the skin’s surface to create a naturally radiant glow without staining the skin. I definitely recommend trying this if you’re already using or interested in using the face drops.
Tan Luxe Body Drops – These work exactly like the face drops but instead you add them to an all over body lotion like the Hello Body Coco Milk Daily Body Lotion. Honestly, I haven’t noticed much of a difference between the face and the body drops and have used them interchangeably. I think the drops are great for extending your tan. I will add a few drops to my lotion on day two or three of my tan to extend it a few more days. If you’re deciding between purchasing the Body Drops or the Wonder Oil, I would recommend the Wonder Oil and the the Face Drops.
The Gradual Lotion – I haven’t tried this yet, but I’ve heard great reviews. It provides all-day hydration, is formulated with Cellutone Complex to firm the look of skin and reduce appearance of cellulite while delivering hydration and a soft subtle glow.
