The difference between Classic, Lotion & Mousse
Our self tanning series, A Hint of Summer, now consists of the trio The Classic, The Lotion, and The Mousse. Three different self tanners packed with lovely summer vibes.
Here you’ll get to learn the individual self tanners – and discover your personal favorite.
Drops, lotion or mousse?
The series, A Hint of Summer, is the embodiment of The Self Tanner Trinity; The Classic, The Lotion and The Mousse. All three self tanners leave your skin with a gorgeous and natural summer radiance - yet possess individual qualities.
The Classic is self tanner drops for face and body, you’ll blend with your daily face cream and/or body lotion. The Lotion is a two-in-one self tanner and body lotion, that provides a beautiful golden tone while thoroughly nourishing and actively caring for your skin. And The Mouse is a light self tanner foam for the body, you can use over your body lotion or body oil.
How to use The Classic
To achieve an even and beautiful glow with the self tanner drops A Hint of Summer – The Classic, we always recommend you prepare the skin with a gentle exfoliation. Use Açai Facial Scrub Mask for your face and Açai Body Scrub for the body – both remove dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth.
Mix 1-3 pumps with your day or night cream and apply it to your face – be extra careful around your jawline, eyebrows and hairline.
Mix 4-6 pumps with the amount of body lotion or body oil you usually would use for the body part you are applying. Carefully distribute and remember to be extra cautious around elbows, knees, and ankles. If these areas are extra dry, moister with extra body lotion before using A Hint of Summer.
Thoroughly wash your hands after use. Within 2-4 hours, you’ll see the light and bronze radiance develop. Repeat the routine for 2-3 days, should you like a more intense glow – experiment slowly and remember to allow the product to develop.
I’m the quintessential anxious self tanner type. I’m worried that the color ends up streaky or too intense – that’s why I love A Hint of Summer – The Classic. It’s so easy to blend with your cream, that nothing can go wrong.
How to use The Lotion
Apply The Lotion all over your body or to that specific area you want glowy. We advise using the same amount of lotion as you would applying your daily body lotion – preferably a smaller application if you have a fair complexion.
Continuously wash your hands, after legs/buttocks, after stomach/back and following shoulders and arms. That way, your hands will not darken before you finish the application.
The glow develops within 2-6 hours, but you’ll instantly feel how The Lotion nourishes your skin with active and natural ingredients. With a high level of antioxidants, buckthorn and açai both strengthen and nourish, whereas oils from seeds of organic pear, aloe vera and cucumber moisture the skin.
Lotion is ideal for everyone uneasy about how many drops of A Hint of Summer to mix to their body lotion. This is made easy for you. And couldn’t be more convenient.
How to use The Mousse
To obtain a beautiful glow and even result with A Hint of Summer – The Mousse gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells with Açai Body Scrub, leaving the skin silky soft. Apply body lotion or body oil, enabling the mousse to distribute evenly. Moisten elbows, knees and ankles generously as these areas tend to be extra dry and pick up color easily.
Apply The Mousse all over your body or to that specific area you want glowy. Use 2-4 pumps per body part, depending on the desired level of radiance. The Mousse is our most intense self tanner product, so give yourself good time carefully distributing the product.
Continuously wash your hands, after legs/buttocks, after stomach/back and following shoulders and arms. That way, your hands will not darken before you finish the application. Let the product absorb entirely before getting dressed. If you like a more intense glow, repeat the routine for 2-3 days – go slowly and remember to allow the product to develop.
The glow develops within 2-6 hours, but you’ll instantly feel how The Mousse nourishes your skin with active and natural ingredients. Açai actively revitalizes with its unique concentration of antioxidants, vitamin C and E, omega 6 & 9 and minerals, whereas aloe vera nourishes and hyaluronic acid increases the smoothness and elasticity of the skin.
Choose your A Hint of Summer-favorit based on the kind of self tanner type you are. The Mousse requires a bit more careful application, but it’s fantastic if you want an instant glow. It’s the one with the most intense color.
