A few months ago I saw So Sue Me aka Suzanne Jackson wearing Bellamianta tan. It was golden but natural. If Suzanne Jackson looked that good, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and contacted Bellamianta directly for a sample of the Professional Solution Spray Tan. I instantly fell in love. Even though I have all the equipment at home to do my own spray tan I prefer to use self-tan most weeks. I went hunting for their Self Tanning Tinted Lotion and Rapid Mousse.
Bellamianta Dark Rapid Mousse
I received the mousse and lotion at the same time. I have been using mousse for the past few years so I was always going to try this first. Another reason I choose the mousse first is that it is the Dark solution.
The first time I used the mousse I found it to be a less of a mousse solution than I’ve used before and I applied too much which made my skin feel very sticky. The second time I applied the mousse, I shook the bottle harder and applied less to be skin. It was still a tiny bit sticky and needs to be washed off before heading out. It develops fast and definitely lives up to its name as a Rapid tan. Within 2 hours I was ready for my shower.
The mousse only lasted about 3 to 4 days. No matter what I did differently before or after application on day 4 it was time to reapply.
The best part of the Rapid Mousse is that a last minute night out does not require instant tan. Break out Bellamianta Rapid Mousse and after at least 2 hours you are ready for your night out.
Bellamianta Medium Self Tanning Tinted Lotion
As I have been loving the mousse for the first few weeks I didn’t even bother to try the lotion. The main reason for this is the word ‘medium’ tanning lotion. I love when my tan is dark and that’s what the mousse is.
Skip ahead to one Tuesday night a few weeks ago I couldn’t find the mousse. The lotion has been sitting looking at me every time I went to do my tan, which was a weekly, sometimes twice a week application.
The first thing I noticed was a little goes a LONG way.
Instantly I noticed the difference between the lotion and mousse. The lotion was very natural and dried as quick as an instant tan. It wasn’t sticky so I have been able to put it on during the day and wear dark clothes. The best way of applying the Bellamianta Tanning Lotion is at night time with a light layer. The next morning there is no smell left on the bed clothes.
It is more natural tan (see picture below) compared to the mousse and I have been wearing the lotion every day for the past few weeks and when I am going to an event, I applied the mousse on the day for a deeper tan.
e and I have been wearing the lotion every day for the past few weeks and when I am going to an event, I applied the mousse on the day for a deeper tan.
The lotion lasts up to 10 days without having to reapply.
This alone makes me reach for the Bellamianta Lotion.
