Reviews for Miami Gorgeous Self Tanning Mousse LaPlaya Glow Instant Self Tanner Bronzing Mousse to Tan Skin Organic Ingredients Best Natural Self Tanner Satisfaction Guarantee 4.2 oz
People say Miami Gorgeous is really similar to Loving Tan.
Better than products 3x the cost!
YAY! Finally a self tanner that is quality AND the price point is perfect! I regularly use loving tan which is a very expensive self tanning mousse that a i bought online..not anymore! Miami Gorgeous will be the ONLY self tanner I use, as it gives me the same effect but at essentially 1/3 the cost. Also, I double checked the ounce ratio, and while this is .2 ounces less than I’m used to...I think I will survive and it’s a great deal! The tan is super dark after having it on for hours, but after showering you are left with a stunning, golden glow. I love love love this product! If nothing changes with the price or the formula, I will definitely be a life long customer!!
I can’t believe it!! I finally found a sunless tanner I love!! No streaks (I used a tanning mitt) no smell!! Love it!!!!!!!!!
Natural Look! Slight learning curve for beginners, though.
This stuff is great but (if you've never used mousse before and aren't much of a self-tanner) there is a learning curve. I use this with a mitt. I love the brown color and absolutely do not feel like it looks orange once it develops. The first time I used it, I ended up with some (really just a few) streaks and patchy spots. However, after watching a million YouTube videos about using self tanning mousse, I can now apply it evenly. I applied lotion to my knees (which are naturally darker than anywhere else on my body), elbows, palms, and ankles first. I HUGE tip is that you should not try to "rub in" in the mousse/use too much pressure as that is what apparently causes the streaks. With the mitt or gloves, you should very gently (like icing a cake) glide it over your skin liberally. And, even more lightly, apply it over the dry spots. I think it's far easier to apply than lotion and any issues are more likely user error than an issue with the product. As far as the tanner itself, it smells nowhere near as bad other self tanners. I've had no issues with it transferring to clothes and such but I wait about 10 min after applying to get dressed. I really love the color of this. It may look different on various skin tones, so for reference, I have warm skin with very yellow undertones. In the photo is about 1 hour after one application (after letting previous applications come off). If I can remember, I will add a photo showing the tan after longer time. Also, I plan to build ...

Affordable DUPE for Loving Tan!!!
I am so in love with this self tanner! It looks like I went to the salon and spent a fortune. It does make a HUGE difference in your skin preperation though. It will give you the best results. What I do is prepare my skin 24 hours beforehand. While in the shower I exfoliate either with an exfoliating body poof or a sugar scrub. Either works just fine. Then I shave. After my shower I slather on my entire body a good moisturizing cream or lotion. I like to use Palmers Cocoa Butter. I dont apply the self tanner until the next day and the reason being is that if you apply it the same day that you shave, your pores are still fesh and open and the bronzer will settle into them leaving you with brown spots all over your legs. A tale tell sign that you have on a self tanner and a huge mistake that a lot of people make. Doesn't really matter where on my body I like to start but usually I start with my legs and work my way up. I do use a tanning mit but for my face, neck, chest and wrists I use a clean foundation brush and sort of "buff" the tanner into my skin. I think it makes such a difference and gives the most natural looking results for those areas. I actually got the idea from watching Jaclyn Hills ever popular tutorial on proper self tanning application for the Loving Tan. This is waaaay more affordable and gives beautiful results. I even purposely didn't apply it for a few days just to see how it faded and I was impressed. It never looked blotchy or had that rusty look. I will... Read More
Lover of Self tanning - this stuff rocks!
Having used many self tanners out there... to name some Netragena spray (dark 3- which I do love the ease of the spray), Saint Tropez, Arbonne.. and so many more high end lines out there...I have to say this stuff gives the most bronze tan colour on the market! Product junkie in me ordered thinking I would be annoyed by using the foam ( since I loved my spray Neutragena) But figured I'd give it a try! I was shocked at the level of tan- but not orange - I got from this! TIP: Use a tan mit ( learned the hard way by not using ) and rub it in well! I have slept with it on... NO smell ( woohoo) and NO stains on my clothes or sheets! ( woohoo) Also... it actually fades evenly on me! ( and this is w/out having used an exfoliant prior.. which i know I need to do!) Workout junkie- spin class- check check... I've never had tan sweat lines using this ( which I have w professional spray tans!) I'm on bottle #2 now.. thank you Miami Gorgeous for making this great product! Only wish to make you even more perfect is a spray version? But it won't hold me back from using you as the colour rocks!
Do not mess around with application! Great product! Well maybe not, check updates
So, I’m brave today, I’m actually uploading pics of myself AT WORK. These are not the most flattering pics by any means but that’s not the point. I’m 43 years old and I just can’t worship the sun anymore. Last summer I tanned by my friends pool every weekend and acquired some not so beautiful spots on my face arms and legs also known as liver spots. As unfair as it is at my age it’s reality. I sure as hell don’t want any more! But I love being tan so I went this route. I read reviews and chose this product because of its natural ingredients, promises of no streaking or orange color and also it shipped fastest lol. I’m just being honest. People recommended getting the application mit but I didn’t want to invest anymore into it until I knew the results. The product arrived on time and I used it that night. I wore latex gloves to apply it and among learning a few things not to do I was also very happy and impressed with the color it gave me. When you apply it it has a dark color so you can see where it may be too thick and it helps you get it as even as possible. I did order the mit and put on another application last night. I highly recommend the loofa rule. Use a loofa on your skin in the shower ahead of time because the color definitely adheres darker to dry skin. Like feet lol. Second very important recommendation is be VERY CAREFUL applying it to your feet. Toes and heels are very dark and stained. And it does not come off easily. It takes days. But honestly I love this stu... Read More
This is a great mousse. It really doesn't have a smell and the color is great. The only thing was I was lighter in some places but I think it was because I try to put to much on at one time. It gives a great color the first application, it dried quick ( I stood in front of a fan), as the day went on it got darker and the next morning it was darker. I would purchase this again. I put it on yesterday and this morning it looks good. No streaks. I just think you have to be careful not to put to much at one time. Also the first time I applied my knees looked white and I was tan on the rest of my legs so I quit putting lotion on before. You just have to try both ways and see what works for you. I love this stuff!
Great loving tan dupe
I saw this recommended by a beauty influencer and decided to give it a try. I normally use loving tan but wanted to see if I liked this better. Well, I don’t like it better but just the same. It seems to have the same cool undertones and consistency. Smell is very light, almost non existent. It doesn’t last quite as long as my LT, starts to fade around a day or two earlier (I compared by putting one on each side of my body). Not super significant. The only thing I don’t love is it just comes in this one shade. In summer I will like a little darker, so it will be a great winter tanner for me and I love the price point.
Love this so much!
Love this product so much!! First of all this self tanner is way cheaper than other popular self tanners out there! It was easy to apply and the smell is so minimal I couldn’t tell it was there unless I put my nose to my skin. After it developed it was the most natural looking tan! There were no streaks or blotches and the color was a very natural tone. Ive been wearing it for a few days now and it is wearing off evenly, not in blotches. Got so many compliments on it and so many people telling me how natural it looks! Will buy again!
Quick results, minimal scent, fabulous tan!!!
Out of all the self tanning products I’ve used (ALOT) this one gave me the deepest tan. Used a tanning mitt in circular motion from head to toe after a shower & before bed. Takes a bit to dry, was sticky for a good 30 min but once it dried was fine! The next morn. I was very tan! Took a shower & shaved & used a moisturizer. A little fading occurred, as usual with any self tanner. It’s to be expected. However my dark self tan stuck around for at least a week with re applying every other night. Fave so far with VERY noticeable results overnite. Minimal smell too! Love that!
