You know me, then you know I love my sunless tanners 🙂 I seriously never need that sun again, with as many sunless tanners as I have in my cupboards. I love reviewing them and trying out each one and seeing the results. They have certainly come a LONGGGGG way since QT! Ha! I received Merle Norman Self Tanning Bronzing Foam and Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub, and I love them! First of all, the self-tanning bronzing foam smells like baby powder! The Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub smells just like grapefruit! Um, YUM!!!
Merle Norman Self Tanning Bronzing Foam
I also love the fact that it is a foam and not lotion. I can spray this onto the sunless tanning mitt that you can wear on your hand, and rub it onto my skin, effortlessly. The foam is colored, so you can see where you put it and instantly, you are a bronzed color! I LOVE The Merle Norman Cosmetics Self Tanning Bronzing Foam!
Now, I sprayed about three squirts onto the mitt and QUICKLY rubbed it into my arms, neck and chest areas. I say quickly because this stuff dries fairly quickly and you must be fast. Since I am a total pro at sunless tanners, my tans are flawless every time.
When this is being rubbed into your skin, it is dark, so you can see where it is going and if it is streaking. If you see a streak, quickly rub until it is blended in. You can put a little lotion on the tops of your hands, elbows, and knees, to ensure no darker spots. Then, spray the mitt with the Flawless tan and quickly rub it into the tops of your hands, and skimming it over your knuckles, knees, elbows, and feet, or any of those rougher spots.
Still unsure how to apply the sunless tanner? I have some great tips to help you achieve that flawless sunless tan! Check out my post on how to apply sunless tanners.
If you still think that sunless tanners deliver an orange glow, think again. This Flawless sunless tanning foam is TAN and I mean a nice Hawaiian bronze tan. Totally believable, and healthy-looking. And to think I use to lay out in the sun to get burnt and then maybe tan! UGH. If I only knew then what I know now, my skin would have been saved from sooo much.
About Merle Norman Cosmetics Self Tanning Bronzing Foam
For all skin types. This lightweight foam utilizes the latest self-tanning color technology to provide a streak-free, healthy-looking tan in a few hours. It’s tinted, and the easy-to-blend formula shows where it’s been applied to help prevent uneven application. Aromaguard® technology doesn’t just mask the tell-tale smell of sunless tanner; it neutralizes it, leaving a pleasant scent throughout the wear. It dries quickly with no sticky after-feel so you can get dressed in just a few minutes! Super-fast, super-natural-looking … and super-safe!
Me, after using Merle Norman Cosmetics Self Tanning Bronzing Foam:
Quick note; I am rarely outside and look how healthy my skin looks. I am tan! This is all because of the Merle Norman Cosmetics Self Tanning Bronzing Foam! Doesn’t the sunless tan look natural? Not orange at all. Yes, I have goosebumps in this picture, lol…
Merle Norman Cosmetics Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub
To ensure you achieve that perfect golden sunless tan, I absolutely recommend exfoliating BEFORE you apply it. I use the Merle Norman Cosmetics Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub on my skin before I use my Merle Norman Cosmetics Self Tanning Bronzing Foam.
When I get out of the shower or bath, I dry myself off, and then I apply the Merle Norman cosmetics Self Tanning Bronzing Foam to my face first, then my neck and other body parts. It literally takes me about 5 minutes to do my whole body. I have been doing this for a while, so it may take you longer.
If you exfoliate your whole body before applying sunless tanner, you will achieve a gorgeous tan without the dreaded color spots or discoloration around your elbows, knuckles, knees, and ankles. Promise!
The Merle Norman Cosmetics Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub smells SO good, just like a fresh grapefruit! I love the scent and I love how it scrubs my skin really well. It takes off all of my dead skin and leaves my skin soft and ready for my sunless tanner!

*Note: Sunless tanning is safe and you can wear it when pregnant. I asked my doctor and did my research. But, of course, always do YOUR own research and figure out what is best for you. This is what works for ME.
