Usually I use Tan Physics every other night because excess tanning products dry my skin and cause the product to create a scaly look. I find that every other day application takes longer to build the tan, but it lasts for quite a while before I have to exfoliate and start fresh. For this demonstration, I used Tan Physics daily, so I could build my tan faster and demonstrate the capability of this lotion.
I consider this the most tan I will get with this product because the product has built up on my skin and is starting to crack. See the photo of my arm above. This signifies that it’s time to exfoliate away the excess product and start fresh again.
Overall, I’m satisfied with Tan Physics because it goes on so gradually that I don’t find streaks and if I do see one, I can usually scrub it off in one or two showers. The lotion itself is caramel colored, so you can spot streaks and rub them in before they set. It’s also not too dark, so I don’t have to worry about being so careful on my back area; it’s not as noticeable as other products I’ve used. The smell is typical of a self tanner, but it isn’t as strong as others I’ve used.
- Always go light to start. It is easier to darken a tan than it is to remove a dark tan. Tan Physics is highly buildable, so you can add color every day until you get the color that suits you.
- Don’t forget your ears and behind your ears.
- Be sure to get the back of your hands, between your fingers and the insides of your wrists. Your face and neck will darken easily so apply sparingly but evenly to this region and be sure to get tanner all the way up to (not in) your hairline to ensure seamless color.
- Slow down and use only residual lotion for your feet, knees and elbows. Feather and blend slowly and lightly. Don’t only use your fingers, let your palms do the work as well.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. I’m interested to know if you get a darker tan than I do.
What’s your favorite self tanner?
