Is Filter by Molly-Mae™ safe to use whilst pregnant?

Filter by Molly-Mae™ self-tanning products are safe to use during your pregnancy. We do recommend however that you do a skin patch test to a small area before applying a tan, as your hormone levels can be higher which may cause an increase in skin sensitivity.

The medium tanning mousse is our most natural radiant finish yet, Dark tanning mousse is perfect for a bronzed glowing finish whilst the Extra Dark tanning mouse is perfect if you are wanting to achieve your deepest tan. Please patch test before using.

How long do I need to wait before showering after tanning?

Please allow 4-6 hours after tanning before showering. Your tan will last longer if you let it completely develop before showering. For ultimate results, we recommend tanning prior bedtime to let your tan develop overnight. Making sure you shower in the am.

How long will my Filter by Molly-Mae™ Tanning mousse last on my body?

Your Filter by Molly-Mae™ Tanning Mousse should last between 5-7 days. Ensuring your skin is properly exfoliated prior to tanning helps to prolong the tan. Once you have your tan on, keep your skin hydrated by using an oil-free moisturiser. This will help to ensure your tan stays healthy, radiant and even.

After applying your Filter by Molly-Mae™ tanning mousse we recommend wearing dark coloured, loose clothing to avoid transfer.

Do I need a self-tanning application mitt?

We recommend using the Filter by Molly-Mae™ Tanning super soft luxurious self-application mitt to apply your tanning mousse. The mitt ensures the tan is spread evenly and gives you the most desirable results. Your tan will be smoother and much remain streak free when applied with Filter by Molly-Mae™ tanning application mitt.

How do I prolong my Filter by Molly-Mae™ tan?

Keeping your skin hydrated is key to prolonging your tan. Using an oil-free moisturiser morning and night all over the body should prolong your tan and prevent any patches. After showering, pat yourself dry instead of rubbing, this will also prolong your tan.
