As you know I had been sent  a few different types of Tantastic tan to review for my site and I loved their Instant Bronzer. (Read the review here!)

However, as I was sent four different types of the tan, so rather than doing four different reviews on the one brand, this review will give the highlights and lowlights of the other three types that I received.


Instant Leg Gel


  • Is instant
  • Great coverage
  • Great colour that you can build
  • Doesn’t rub off onto your clothes
  • Very quick drying


  • This tan does have a fake tan smell to it
  • I would only use this on my legs as it seems to look a little patchy on arms or chest!

Self- tanning Mousse

Tantastic Self Tanning Mousse 150ml


  • Deeper colour
  • Lasts longer
  • Mousse allows for easy application
  • No over powering smell


  • Need to put on the night before
  • Maybe better for slightly oiler skin as a friend with drier skin than mine found it patchy

Instant Tan


  • Is instant
  • Great colour that you can build
  • Very quick drying
  • Don’t need to use a lot for a lovely colour


  • Smells like fake tan!
  • Very liquid. I prefer a thicker consistency as I think it is easier to apply

I must be honest and admit that the Instant Bronzer (I am obsessed with this!) and the Instant Leg Gel are the ones I would buy again. I did like the Self Tanning Mousse but I prefer my tans to be instant so I can have a tan at the very last minute if I need it.
