You could use it on your face if you wanted to, I suppose. If you do, however, I would make that your face is one of the first places that you apply it (to avoid spreading undesirable "stuff" from other parts of your body onto your face, obviously). I also use a drop of dishwashing liquid and warm water to rinse out the mitt after each use so that you don't get an accumulation of old self tanner and other nasty stuff on the applicator mitt for future uses.

The mitt comes in the box, so I'm pretty sure you can't just buy the mitt. However, St. Tropez packages their tanner and mitts separately...you could try one of their mitts for about $6.

Question
How long will a bottle last?
I generally use Bliss spray tan because I like the brown (not orange) color it produces. The problem is that you really only get about 2 1/2 full applications out of Bliss, so it's pretty expensive. How does this compare? How many uses per bottle if you use it "face to toe"?

answer 5
I found that I actually had to use more of this compared to other self tanners I've used so it actually didn't last as long as the others, unfortunately (such as St Tropez self tanning mousse and Clarins Intense Bronze Self Tanning Tint-both of which I used with the St Tropez applicator mitt). I think it may be because the texture of the product (which is more like a lotion, I guess) just doesn't work that well with the applicator mitt provided. A lot of the product just seems to absorb into the mitt instead of spreading evenly on the skin. I haven't tried just using my hands with gloves on to apply it yet, but maybe that would make it so that I don't have to use SO much product. I can't say EXACTLY how long it would last, but you'll get more uses out of it than the bliss product that you're using now, for sure. However, you may not get as many uses out of it as compared to some of the other products that have textures specifically designed to be applied with the mitt (i.e. a mousse or liquid type of texture I mentioned above).

It will look natural; I'm also have very fair skin tone and it works perfectly on me. Make sure to exfoliate and do not apply too much on the first time; blend well. It is not too dark with one light application that is blended well.

answer 3
I'm ghostly pale (literally like a sheet of paper) and this stuff gave me a beautiful golden tan. You can use it on your whole body (including face), just make sure you exfoliate knees, ankles, and elbows and moisturize beforehand. When it comes to facial application, you might find that when you wake up (assuming you put it on before bed since you don't want to sweat or anything after application) it looks somewhat uneven, like theres a little bit of dirt on your face or something. As soon as you wash your face you'll be left with natural looking color. The first time you shower, however, a little color does tend to come off.

Definitely shave your legs before applying, and apply a lighter layer to knees, elbows, and ankles. I do a scrub on my face before I apply because I want a smooth surface.

Exfoliation is not necessarily important with this product. I would recommend shaving or waxing first, then a light exfoliation (loofah or bath gloves or a gentle scrub). Then just apply. You will have golden, bronzed skin in 8 hours. Put it on about 30 minutes before bed and wake up to a perfect tan.

To be completely honest, I don't exfoliate while using this product and I have amazing results! I have had to exfoliate in the past when using St. Tropez because they tan would fade unevenly. That is not this case with this Tarte tanner.

Try soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a small amount of a gentle soap for 5-10 minutes, then rinse it well and let it air dry. Washing it in the washing machine might be too aggressive and can damage the texture of the glove.

I usually just rinse mine under warm water after each application. I let it dry over the container. I would not recommend washing it in your washing machine first, because it will probably stain your clothes and secondly because it may fall apart.

Is the color that develops very light, medium, or dark after using it just once? Does it smell at all after hours of having it on?
And also for anyone that can possibly answer this, is it better than the lorac selftantalizer?

There is really no smell at all during application or after. There is a bronzer in it so you can see where you are applying. This helps to make sure you're applying evenly. The color develops in about four hours, but you look tan immediately because of the bronzer. I would say it's medium tan (I have fair skin). It is definitely noticeable, but not so dark it looks fake and not at all orangey.

No smell and it goes on with a light bronze gel color so you can see it lightly immediately (and it helps so you know where you have put it). It gets a really good color in a couple of hours like you have tanned a few days in a row and I am fair skin with a light base. My color after my 2 weekly applications is as good as my tan I got from Mexico!

I use it about 2 times a week. You can build the color, but I like how it looks after 1 application. It smells tropical (no tanner smell). Its a light smell, and I don't really notice it lasting too long. I have not tried the Lorac though, all I know is this is the best one I've ever tried.
