ClassyinClass Product Review: Equate Beauty Self-Tan Foaming Mousse

In preparing for our trip to ATL, and the indoor water park we’ll be playing at on the way back, I picked up some sunless tanners from Walmart. Per an Instagram friend, I was searching for Loreal’s Sublime Bronze lotion. I found that and this…

In the past I have used St Tropez from Sephora. I absolutely love St Tropez’s gradual tanning mousse. It’s amazing and I will forever be a huge fan. However, at $32 to $42 a bottle it’s slightly out of my price range (especially for a product that I use multiple times per week). The St Tropez applicator mitt is another $6.50.

The equate/walmart brand, which I also purchased an applicator mitt with, came to a grand total of about $13.

So how does this inexpensive knock off fair? To be honest I was a little scared when I initially pumped the product onto the mitt.

Yes, it looks like a big pile of sh!t. The St Tropez option I was previously using was white, so this was certainly a surprise! However, the coloring helped me see where the product had been applied, so that was definitely helpful.

The Equate brand’s smell is similar to any other sunless tanner and, also, you have to be extremely careful around your elbows, ankles, and so on. If you do make a mistake, you can instantly correct it with a wet washcloth. I also blended the entirety with a dry towel to buff out any imperfections.

Once the product is applied you’ll need to wait four hours before showering or sweating. If you apply directly out of the shower, this isn’t a problem at all. When you next shower, you’ll be all browned up and ready to flaunt your flawless sunless tan. Plus, you won’t need to reapply for a few days and you’ve avoided drying out your skin and premature wrinkles by staying away from the tanning beds!

Do you think you’ll try the Walmart brand’s sunless tanner? Have you tried St Tropez? Which bottle tanner do you use?

    • I’m loving it, Val. You really have to be careful though. I apply it using the little mitt. Then I rub over it all with a dry towel and concentrate on my elbows, knees, and ankles. Finally I rub in my regular lotion and then go over all of that with a dry towel to make sure there aren’t any streaks. It’s a process! I wash my hands in between each step too.

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the
    layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  2. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire
    someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to construct my own blog and
    would like to know where u got this from. thank you
