The best products for tanning your face

Gone are the days of orange faces on those who tried to fake tan their face. There are now an array of options for tanning your face and giving it that extra glow without worrying about it being too dark or making your skin break out. From tanning drops to face mists, we’re rounding up the best self tanning products made specifically for tanning your face!

Nano Mist Tan Compact

Nano Mist Tan Compact

MineTan’s Nano Mist Tan Compact is a self tanning revolution. The beauty device is compact, portable and combines an amazing facial moisturizer with a self tan. Using Nano Atomization Technology, tan is absorbed by the skin faster than ever before leaving it feeling soft, hydrated and refreshed. The fast drying formula builds a natural tan gradually over the next few hours.

So easy to use and so compact, it can be used anytime, anywhere to achieve a gorgeous, hydrating glow on-the-go.

How to use

It’s as simple as sliding the front cover down (holding away from skin initially) and when the white light is illuminated the Nano Mist will spray. Vertically hold Nano Mist 10 -12cm (4-5”) away from the skin. Close your eyes and mouth and begin to work in an even motion. Moving the device at  a slow, steady pace will ensure even coverage and a better result but you can use your mini mitt that comes in the pack to even and blend out any build up.  The fast drying formula will build a natural looking tan, gradually over the next few hours. Re-apply to achieve an even darker skin finish.

How to Use the Nano Mist

“I got ordered this with my fabfitfun box as a add on. So glad I did!! I am a frequent self tanner so I’d call myself pretty advanced. This has no funky smell. Give you the right amount of glow. I use it in the morning and at night. Also not that it does anything but I spray it on throughout the day even with makeup on just to wake me and my skin up. I also love that don’t need to blend with a mit or run to wash my hands in fear of orange palms. Spray and go. Quick and easy. I love it and hopefully can buy more for other than parts of my body. Happy here!” Cristi B.

“Color is excellent. I first wash my face, wait until completely dry as instructed, spray all over including my neck. Then after a few minutes I apply my moisturizer… I also tend to break out easily, and with this product I havent and it’s been 2 weeks…yeaaaahhh!” Jennifer M.

“I love this product! I mixed about 2 drops into my face moisturizer and applied it and almost instantly I started seeing results. It gave me a gorgeous caramel-colored glow! 10/10 would repurchase. It’s definitely an awesome addition to your tanning collection.” Jordan E.

“I love this stuff. I have pale ***** skin all winter and summer long and this oil is so easy to use and gives me just the right amount of glow without looking like it comes from a bottle. I can’t tan because I have a history of skin cancer. I am stocking up on this. Got my first bottle in my Fab Fit Fun box and used it for 2 weeks and bought more, plus the self tanning mousse.” Emma R Engel.
