Is a tanning brush better than a tanning mitt?
I hear you ask which is better, a tanning mitt or The Tan Brush. There are 53 self-tanning mitts on the market, which increase annually—ranging in shape, size, and various materials. Some pretty basic, some very fancy and not all result in the best self-tan.
If you are happy to continue using a tanning mitt, this blog may not be for you. However, are you interested in learning a secret? What if I tell you that you can apply your favourite self-tanning product flawlessly with a tanning brush. Would you like to discover how?
I said your favourite tanning product because The Tan Brush will work with any self-tanning cream, lotion, mousse, oil or liquid on the market.
We are not about self-tanning products; We are all about the application.
It doesn’t matter if you are applying a product from the £1 store or a top of the range Sisley. You will get a fantastic result using our brush. And if you use The Tan Brush Cleanser that we created, you can use all of the products mentioned above at one time. Plus, a shimmer if you feel the need.
Cleanse the brush in-between uses, and you can apply different effects to various parts of your body and face all at once.
The Tan Brush will give you a better finish than a mitt, and I say that with my hand on my heart; of course, you’ll have to allow someone to brush your back – just like using a mitt. Although, funnily, both my sons are happy to brush my back… touch me with a mitt or glove – no chance!
We make this claim simply because of the difference The Tan Brush will make to your application. Instead of the product sitting on the skin’s surface due to being swept on with a mitt, the brush buffs the product into the skin as you apply it. You will be delighted with the results, a silky, smooth, gorgeous glow without streaks, patches or messy hands.
Don’t worry if you get distracted while applying and end up with a patch; you can buff a little product into that isolated area and blend, promoting glowing, healthy, natural-looking and longer-lasting tanned skin. Leaving you feeling fantastic, what more does one want?
You will need less product as you brush and buff into the skin, with minimal remains on the brush. In other words, your tanning product will also last longer, another fantastic benefit compared to product loaded mitts.
Self-tanning products dry much quicker as you brush and buff them into your skin a little at a time until almost completely dry. This process takes much longer with a mitt application, as the product will sit on the surface of your skin until you do the ‘Tan Dance’, and it eventually dries. We have noticed that when we apply self-tan or fake-tan as some people refer to it, in the evenings, no residual product transfers to the bedsheets, as there is very little product left on the skin’s surface. This, I feel, is a big bonus. When I used a mitt in my ‘life before Tan Brush’, I would have been quite reluctant to apply a fake tan before going to bed. Now I don’t give it a second thought.
