*NEW* Bellamianta Crystal Clear Mousse

This is the first clear tanning mousse to arrive to Ireland that gives you a glow that you don’t need to wash off. The clear formula has no guide colour (it goes on clear), so the colour will look completely natural, won’t transfer onto your clothes, and as an added bonus, it smells fresh and light.

Bellamianta is a luxury tanning brand and at the forefront when it comes to self-tanners. The results you get from Bellamianta are always what you hope for: natural-looking, good-smelling, long-lasting, and easy to apply. And now, with one of Bellamianta’s newest innovations — Crystal Clear Mousse — you can ad this clean formula to your shopping list.

Crystal Clear is one of Bellamianta’s newer faux-glow formulas. It helps protect the skin from irritants and helps make your skin glowy. On top of its ingredients, what is ultimately different about this mousse is that the formula is completely clear, making it one of few on the market with this feature. This has a couple of benefits. First, you don’t need to wash it off after a certain amount of time. Now, this may sound like a disaster waiting to happen, but we’ve tried and tested it and resulted in waking up with clean sheets! Win win!

Here’s exactly how we used the mousse: Make sure to shave your legs 24hrs before and exfoliate your entire body with Bellamianta’s exfoliating mitt. Normally after a shower, we would recommend apply moisturiser, but if you’re using self-tanner, skip this step. That being said, definitely check for any dry areas, especially your elbows, knees, ankles, and hands, and put on just a tiny bit of moisturiser wherever you need.

Application:

Now, starting with your legs and working your way up, use about one-to-two pumps per area and just smoothed it on in circular motions — and yes, use the Bellamianta tanning mitt. It’s life-changing! The fact that the mousse is clear and doesn’t have a guide color (which is what formulators call the brown/bronze colour you see in the rest of their self-tanners) doesn’t really change the application process. Sure, you can’t see the colour going on your body (and it takes a while for the bronze to develop), but the mousse foams up into a visible white foam and you can feel the mousse as it glides over your skin and hydrates it. The mitt is really key to avoiding streaks, whether your self-tanner has a guide colour or not. Oh, and just because it’s clear doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wash your hands afterward.

The mousse dries incredibly fast. All you need is about five minutes and then you can put on loose-fitting clothes, even a white tee. And wallah! You’ll wake up looking like you just got back from a trip to Hawaii, with no streaks on your arms or legs and no tan stains on your sheets.

Bellamianta’s Crystal Clear Self Tan Mousse is definitely becoming a new go-to for brides too, especially wedding dress shopping!
