I've been at QVC since midnight last night presenting my brand new TSV: Argan Self-Tanning Body Wash. Have you been able to catch one of my shows? I'm so proud of this product. It's a body wash that tans your skin in the shower! All you have to do is step into the shower, apply the body wash, wait 30 seconds for it to sink in, rinse, and step out of the shower with a natural-looking glow!!
I've been getting a lot of questions on the QVC forums about the best way to apply the tanner, so I thought I'd answer a few of the most common ones here!
Can I use the Argan Self-Tanning Body Wash on my face?
Yes! Although, I don't recommend using the sponge on your face. :) Instead, use the enclosed gloves. Just pump a very small amount of the foam onto the gloves, and rub your hands together to spread it around. Then, using the tips of your fingers, massage the tanner into your face. Focus the most on areas where the sun would naturally hit your face like the bridge of your nose, and the high planes of your face. I recommend doing this in front of a mirror!
Is the color buildable? Do I need to wait before putting on my clothes?
The tanner is very buildable! After the first use, you'll see a subtle but noticeable increase in tanness. If you continue to us it every day, the color will build to a deeper tan. After you use the tanner, simply step out of the shower and pat skin dry with a towel. Be sure not to rub skin, as that may cause transfer on your towel. (But if that happens, don't worry, the color washes out of fabric.) Immediately apply a rich body moisturizer like the Argan Tan Extending Body Lotion, and put your clothes on!
Do I need to shampoo my hair before I use this instead of after? Will my hair cause streaking?
Yes, applying the Argan Self-Tanning Body Wash should be the LAST thing you do in the shower. Shampooing and conditioning hair after applying the body wash may cause streaking in the formula. I recommend throwing your wet hair up in a bun, and then applying the body wash so that your hair doesn't drip onto your body. You should also turn the water off, or step completely outside the stream of your shower as you apply the product so that you are sure to cover every inch before washing it off.
I always have a hard time using self-tanners on my hands, feet, ankles, and knees. What's the best way to make the color look natural?
Put on the enclosed gloves, and use your hands to delicately paint the Self-Tanning Body Wash onto these areas. When applying to hands and feet, you want the color to be darkest closest to the ankle/wrist and fade out slightly as you reach your fingertips.
Will this stain my shower?
Absolutely not! If you get any drips, just wash them away with warm water. It will come right off!
