Why a tanning water? You know how back in the day people that wanted a funny picture of a cat had to go to a library? And a capybara in a suit? Forget about it! Now all we have to do is look at our phone. That’s what our Tanning Water feels like; it makes it so easy to tan, it almost feels wrong.

For people without the time to stand around in their birthday suits waiting for a tan to dry, this gorgeous formula will leave even the most experienced tanning connoisseurs guessing whether you’re born with it or spend your days at a nude beach. Just spray on the water, wait a few minutes, and get dressed knowing that you’ll soon be glowing as if you’ve been on a tropical holiday. All without the chemical maze of some other tans. Best applied by spraying all over and blending with your hands (remember to wash them immediately after).


What’s the difference between a mousse and a water?

We made a Tanning Mousse and a Tanning Water to cater to different skin types and application preferences. Our Tanning Mousse contains Vitamin B5 and applies as a soft, creamy, more hydrating feel making it more suitable for dry skin types. Meanwhile our tanning water feels just like, well, water so is extremely lightweight and quick drying – for those that don’t have time to stand around in their birthday suit!

How long does this take to develop?

Our Natural Tanning Water uses two naturally derived tanning ingredients, DHA and Erythrulose, which can be washed off the skin minimum 2 hours after application. Your colour won’t reach its full depth until up to 24 hours though, so for special events, we recommend applying the day prior. This will also allow you to reapply if you wish to achieve darker results.

How dark is the shade going to be?

Our Natural Tanning Range is designed to give you a natural-looking tan which will vary from person to person. Results will depend on your natural skin colour and undertones. Please note this is not a performance tan, instead giving you a sun-kissed glow that will have people guessing whether you spend your days relaxing by the seaside!

Will I look orange?

We’ve done our very best to avoid all hints of orange in this formula! The exact shade and depth of the tan will vary from person to person though, depending on your natural skin type and colour.

What does this smell like?

Nobody likes the smell of a fake tan! And if you’re anything like us then you’re equally over the coconut scent typically added to tanning products to mask the smell. Which is why we went with our signature MooGoo vanilla scent; a proprietary blend of fragrant oils that are free from phthalates (the part in fragrance that usually causes reactions).

How long will this last, will it go blotchy?

To maintain the quality of your tan we recommend exfoliating 24 hours before application and moisturising your skin regularly after you have applied and rinsed off the tanning solution. The more hydrated you keep your skin, the more naturally your tan will fade! Luckily, we make plenty of moisturisers that do just that.

We also recommend applying moisturisers to rough areas before applying your tan. This includes hands, feet, elbows and knees!

Does it stain your sheets?

From the feedback we gathered during testing, our Tanning Range is not particularly sheet-staining. We still recommend waiting until your tan is fully dry before putting on loose-fitting pyjamas and heading to sleep – for both your sheets and your tan’s sake!

Why is there no colour guide? How do I know where I’ve applied it?

We intentionally formulated our tanning range without a colour guide to keep things mess and stain free! Simply spray the water evenly across your whole body and wait until skin feels dry to the touch before getting dressed.

Is this suitable for irritated and /or sensitive skin types?

Yes! We developed this specifically for sensitive skin types who avoid regular tanning products due to their chemical loads and high chances of reactions. We use no parabens, phenoxyethanol or other nasties and have also included skin hydrating properties.

Most tanning products break me out – is this non-comedogenic?

Yes! Our whole tanning range is made without the use of mineral oils, which are a common cause of breakouts in skincare products. Being a tanning water too, this formula is very lightweight and won’t feel heavy on your skin.

Will Sunscreen remove my fake tan?

The quick answer…yes, some types of sunscreens may. The slightly longer and more accurate answer is that there are two broad types of ways to get sun protection. The first uses a physical block like Zinc or clear zinc that is designed to cover the skin and reflect off rays. The other type uses UV filters, and these are designed to absorb into the top layer of skin. To do this they are formulated with penetration enhancers. So as you can imagine, if a product is designed to absorb into the top layer of skin where your fake tan also is, and then get washed off, then some of your fake tan may also get washed away with it. So, at least on paper, a physical sunscreen probably wouldn’t wash off much fake tan. A UV filter-based sunscreen, because it has penetration enhancers, probably would. In any case, we would say to wait about 12-24 hours after fake tanning before applying any sunscreen. And in that time please don’t lay out in the sun either!
