New product alert! Meet Bali Body’s new water-based, full-body self tan solution: Clear Self Tanning Water! Bali Body really is on fire with launching new, innovative products and I’m happy to share my experience with their newest launch which I have been testing for a bit.

Bali Body Clear Self Tanning Water

New Water-Based Bali Body Clear Self Tanning Water

The Bali Body Clear Self Tanning Water is a water-based, full-body self tan solution. This transparent water to foam formula contains no dye, making it a clean & easy way to achieve the perfect fake tan at home. Moreover, it’s enriched with nourishing oils, skin-loving & natural ingredients for a perfect tan that smooths & hydrates.

The Clear Self Tanning Water is formulated with 100% Natural DHA & environmentally friendly ingredients, making it the perfect solution for sensitive skin or anyone searching for a more natural self tan alternative to adding to their beauty regime. The water-based solution ensures zero transfer & provides a light to medium self tan.

The difference between the Clear Self Tanning Water and the (Dark/Ultra Dark) Self Tanning Mousse is that the self tanning mousse provides more of a dark self tan. The Clear Self Tan is the perfect option if you have very fair or sensitive skin. 

Bali Body is a cruelty-free brand so there’s no difference for this product. It is 100% Australian-made, vegan, and promises zero transfer. The Clear Self Tanning Water retails for $28.95 USD – €27.95 EUR – £24.95 GBP and contains 200 ml/6.7 fl. oz.

Before & After

As you can tell, this self tanning product is indeed providing a light to medium self tan. I would say if you apply just one coat, you’ll get a light self tan, and applying another coat will give you a medium self tan. In the picture above I applied just one coat which makes the tan looks very subtle and natural.

If you’re starting out with self tan and you’re afraid you’ll look orange or too tan (which never happened to me when using Bali Body products but I get your fear), I would recommend starting with this product! It’s super easy to apply, the actual foam is white so looks less intimidating (the self tanning mousses have a brown-looking foam), will prevent transfer and the tan itself looks subtle so no need to be scared of the results. Moreover, this tan is also buildable which is a great benefit for beginners. You could apply just one coat, see how you like it and if you decide you want a little more of a tan you just apply another layer.

I personally never had skin irritation after using Bali Body products so I think all their products are pretty safe for sensitive skin BUT I like how they made sure this product would be perfect for sensitive skin, anyone searching for a more natural self tan and very light skin tones. Not everyone wants a very dark-looking tan so I think it’s amazing Bali Body respected that and created a great solution.

I like to apply my self tan with the Bali Body Luxe Tanning Mitt because the mitt is super soft and makes it so much easier to apply your self tan evenly and streak-free. I have a couple of tanning mitts myself because I love them so much and I slowly get everyone around me hooked on the Luxe Tanning Mitt too haha. Right now, you can pair the Luxe Tanning Mitt with the Clear Self Tanning Mousse to save 20% off the mitt. This is not sponsored and I won’t earn any commission, I just really love the mitt and you deserve a discount!

My Experience Using The Clear Self Tanning Water

It’s a great product, as always! It 100% works as promised. It’s a zero transfer, easy, clean, and smoothing foam. I had no irritation at all and my skin doesn’t feel dry after applying the self tan, nor does it feel dry after a couple of hours.

It really is a light self tan and even though I appreciate and like that, I personally prefer the Dark Self Tanning Mousse or the Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse. A darker self tan has my preference but that doesn’t mean this product isn’t good. I’m pretty sure I would have been obsessed with the Clear Self Tanning Water when I just started out with self tanning because it’s really fail proof. Now I’m a bit more expierenced using self tanning products, I just like to work with a darker tan.

I have to say though that I don’t like applying the Dark or Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse to my face because that’s still making me scared about having a too dark looking face and it being too obvious that I self-tanned. I normally use the Face Tan Water but I would use the Clear Self Tanning Water on my face too. I think this would be a great way to tan my face and give it a nice, subtle tan without it being too much. I’ll test this in the future!

Overall, it’s a great product and 100% worth the try! You can get your Clear Self Tanning Water here.

    Ohhh always looking for a good self tanner. I think I would prefer the mousse too as I want a darker tan. Does it feel sticky after you apply? This is a great option for the face like you said. Thanks for the review and I will definitely be checking it out. Love the packaging too!

      It’s not sticky at all. After you just applied it, you can feel that it’s still just a bit ‘wet’ but after like 5-10 minutes it’s dried down and feels all normal! 🙂

    This product sounds great! I love the idea of self tanning, but I’ve always been a bit put off because my skin is really sensitive and I wouldn’t want to accidentally turn myself orange! This tanning water sounds perfect though xx
