Tanwise Dark Bronzing Sunless Mousse Review

Summer is just around the corner and soon everyone will be out in the sun looking for that sun-kissed golden glow. Tanwise mousse is a natural bronzer sunless tanning mousse that gives you a streak-free beautiful bronze color and a natural-looking tan without the sun. Being a dark bronzer, it gives you an immediate dark bronze color and over time the sunless formula helps to maintain that bronze glow.

You don’t have to wait for the tan to develop, you will notice the results instantly but the results are only temporary. The color develops with time, but before you put your clothes back on wait for about 15-20 for it to dry. This is perfect if you’re looking to add a little color to your skin but you don’t have the time to use regular tanners for a long-lasting effect.

Compared to some mousses, Tanwise is pretty easy to apply, but you must use a tanning mitt. It’s always better if you exfoliate and moisturize your skin before applying the product. It blends nicely with your skin to give you smooth and streak-free coverage.

What to expect from Tanwise mousse

This dark bronzer contains 25 ingredients. It has a smooth texture that isn’t too watery or runny like other mousses. Its dark color helps you to avoid streaking as you can see where you’re applying. A dark color develops after a few hours of applying and the tan can last for about a week if you don’t reapply or use a tanning lotion to extend the tan. For the tan to develop a darker color, you’ll need to leave it on without taking a shower for about 8 hours so that it can develop or you can sleep with it and wash it off the next morning.

Although it’s not as dark as it was before you took a shower, it has a natural tan that isn’t orange, smooth, and even without any streaks. After a few days, your tan becomes a light-medium tan and slowly starts to fade off. You might also see some splotchy and unnatural shades as it fades.

How does Tanwise mousse work?

Tanwise mousse has a dark brown color that is very smooth and even with an airy texture. The dark color will help guide you as you apply it on your skin which helps to avoid streaking. It blends in very well and it doesn’t dry immediately it touches your skin so you can know which parts you haven’t applied properly.

It’s very easy to apply Tanwise mousse. All you need is a tanning mousse and you’re set to go. Using circular motions apply the mousse all over your body and face. Then wait for 15-20 minutes for it to dry before you redress. To allow the mousse to penetrate deeper into your skin, wait for 4-6 hours before you take a shower or stay with it overnight and take a shower the next morning.

For best results first, make sure you exfoliate your skin then apply in thin even layers. Don’t apply too much around your eyebrows and hairline. You’ll also want your skin to be clean, so the best time to apply a tanner is after taking a shower where you’ve scrubbed your skin. Then moisturize the extra dry parts of your skin with an oil and fragrance-free lotion. Drier skin absorbs tanner giving it a darker look than the rest of your skin so don’t apply too much on those areas.

How long does it take to dry?

After about 15 minutes the mousse has dried and you don’t feel wet or sticky and it’s okay to put your clothes on. However, you need to be careful as this dark tan can still stain your clothes and sheets. It’s advisable to wear dark clothes and dark-colored sheets when tanning to avoid stains.


Unlike other mousses that have an unpleasant smell, Tanwise mousse has a delicious smell that you can sense immediately you open the bottle. The fragrance is sweet and fruity which might be too strong for some users while others may like it. Unfortunately, the smell doesn’t last long and you might smell the DHA afterward.

Is it safe to use Tanwise mousse?

Using sunless tanners is much safer than exposing your skin to the harmful rays of the sun. Most tanners are FDA approved and Tanwise is safe to use on your skin as long as you follow the instructions. It’s safe to use it as an external application to your skin, but don’t use it around your eyes, mouth, nose, or other parts of your body that have mucus membranes.
