If you know me, you know my favorite season is summer. I just can’t deal with cold, rainy days and that it’s getting dark so early. I love warm days, full of sun and sunbathing. Obviously, that’s not really possible right now and sadly I’m not a lover of a sunbed. So to still have my tan and a bit of a summery feeling, I like to self tan. For all my fellow self tan lovers, I have good news! There’s a new self tanning mousse on the market: The Bali Body Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse and I tested it!
I already tried a couple of self tan products from Bali Body. I tested out their Dark Self Tan Mousse and the Gradual Tan, both products I really loved. When Bali Body reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try their new product, I couldn’t say no. Let’s first start off by talking about the new Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse.
Bali Body Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse is the second Mousse within the
brands bestselling Self Tan range. The new formula has been created for babes who want the darkest tan possible. Ultra Dark delivers a quality streak free formula and a dark, flawless fake tan colour.
I’m so curious how this will look on my skin tone. I’m pale and I’m not easily tanning. Questions I have beforehand are: how is this going to look? isn’t it too dark for me? would I look orange? do I have to be even more careful when it comes to streaks?
Since Bali Body was so kind to send me the product even before the launch, I was able to test it and get this review up so you’re able to buy quickly after it’s launch.

As I said before, I already tried the Dark Self Tanning Mousse and ended up really liking it. So I already experienced features and benefits such as no fake tan smell, fast-drying, and streak-free. BUT of course, we are going to test out if this Bali Body Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse is just as good as the Bali Body Dark Self Tanning Mousse.

How to apply
Bali Body application advice: For best results apply to clean, dry skin in long sweeping motions using a tanning mitt. Ensure all areas are covered before lightly gliding excess tan over hands & feet.
First of all, I truly want to recommend the Bali Body Luxe Tanning Mitt. This mitt makes it so easy to apply the product. I’ve tested it while using the Dark Self Tanning Mousse and the combination worked so well. Moreover, my mom stole my mitt several times and is obsessed with it too. I asked Bali Body if I could get another mitt for my mom (she kept begging for her own Bali Body mitt, I love my mom) and, I swear, she’s the happiest person on earth right now lol, thank you so much Bali Body for sending me another one!!
Before & After 1 Layer
Don’t mind my legs, I know they’re not pretty and I wasn’t able to sit on the ground because I could barely do a thing after my injection for ACNES. Yes, the first thing I did when I felt a little bit better was self tanning lol. Anyway, the top photo is before any self tan obviously and the bottom photo is just a couple of hours after I applied the self tan.
Even though I already loved the Bali Body Dark Self Tanning Mousse, I’m even more obsessed with the Bali Body Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse. I can definitely tell it’s darker than the other one but still very natural looking. As you can tell, I’m super pale but it doesn’t make me look orange or overall too dark. My legs definitely look 10 times better with a self tan on.
Moreover, it’s so easy to apply the mousse! Especially when using a mitt, but the mousse glides onto the skin and dries pretty quickly. Also, I ended up having a perfect streak-free tan!
The thing I like most about this product is that it isn’t drying or irritating at all. I have pretty sensitive skin and especially after shaving my legs, I tend to have irritated skin. However, I can still use this self tanning mousse without extra irritating my skin. After I applied the mousse, I can barely tell that I’ve put on a self tanning product instead of a body lotion.
Oh and this self tan doesn’t have a typical self tanning smell. As Bali Body described it, it even has a floral scent to it which is so nice. The smell is not overwhelming at all, it’s just a subtle scent.
Overall, I’m super satisfied with this Bali Body Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse. I had high expectations, because all the products I’ve tried from Bali Body have been amazing and such great quality, but they definitely lived up to my expectations. The product was even better than I expected it to be, which I think is awesome.
If you’re looking for an amazing Ultra Dark self tanning mousse, I would for sure recommend this one. Wondering where to buy? You can shop Bali Body on their website here.

See you next time loves,
I have never tried self tanning to be honest but I kinda wanted to try it at some point. Seems like you like this one a lot. It’s good because it is vegan and cruelty free!!!
I’ve been scared for self tanning a pretty long time but found out that when using the right products, it’s super easy and no need to be scared for streaks! This Bali Body Self Tanning Mousse makes it soooo easy and indeed, I love that it is vegan and cruelty-free!
Omg this looks so incredible – I’ve never tried self tanning but I want too! I’m always afraid I’ll look streaky or that my face won’t match my body, but this looks so awesome! Did you notice if it stained any surfaces or clothing? That is my ultimate fear!
I’ve been scared for so long too! But when using the right products it’s almost impossible to mess up. That’s why I love the Bali Body self tanning products so much, it’s streak-free and so easy!
After I apply self tan, I let it dry for 45 minutes before I put on clothing and it doesn’t stain my clothing at all! I’ve never seen any staining on surfaces while I let it dry either so that’s amazing.
