Au Courant Winter Tan

Professional Makeup Artist Review

Professional Makeup artist Mary Schook reviews Au Courant Sunless Tanning. Beauty 212
Is winter's cold erratic weather starting to take it's toll and make your mind wander to warmer climates?
There's nothing like an instant tan to warm up one's look and give a bit of a healthy glow. I have used more than my fair share of sunless tanners and stains in my day. Most photo shoots for the spring and summer take place in the winter in a photo studio. Which tanner is the most natural? It is one from a company called Au Courant. http://www.aucourant.com/

My favorite formula is the Sunless Spray Tan. It seems to have more of an olive hue to it than the other formulas do, but they just came out with a Platinum line so that may have changed.Their website says the Mousse is their top seller.

THE POSITIVES
-No rancid smell from the developer.
-Natural looking colors for even the palest skin.
-Non-comedogenic so it doesn't break out the face.
-Variety of formulas for different skin types and effects.
-Contains Aloe so you won't have to worry about dry patches looking darker than other areas.
-There's no alcohol so it won't dry out your skin like other companies.
-Has a long shelf life! I hate it when my tanners go bad in less than a month after opening them.

TAN TIPS
-The key to a natural tan is to exfoliate well especially around the knees and elbows.
-Use non-latex gloves to spread over the body.
-Make sure the formula is dry before dressing.

Sunless Tanning & Toning Au Courant Tanning Experts

 The Stylish City

We’re all about avoiding skin cancer. Duh. The younger you start tanning in the direct sunlight (or god forbid in a tanning bed!) the higher your chances of getting melanoma. If you just can’t embrace your god-given hue and the thought of putting your pasty body into a bathing suits makes you puke, then you’re forced to explore some sunless tanning options. That is, if you can fake it.



So if you’re going to fake it, here are the safest ways. Self-tanners leave you either stinky or smelling like a bagel bite. If you insist on self tanners, spray tan also does the trick with two benefits: 1) Air brushed tans looks more even and real and 2) You can tone it up while you tan. Do you notice how dancing with the stars contestants look so ripped? That’s because they are airbrushed to look that way. Toning and sculpting in the privacy of your own home. (Most companies do make house calls, pop up this little tent thing and spray away.) Weary about spending the money? There are some tricks to extend air brushed tans. Visit tanning expert cosmetic company Au Courant’s blog for tips on how to get the most brown for your buck.

Air brushing is a sneaky form of faux self-improvement. You can’t will away wrinkles without Botox and you can’t make your hair fuller sans extensions. You can, however, make your skin naturally tan by laying at the beach for five hours and tone yourself through diet and exercise. Or you can just call your local air brush queen.

Feeling milk bottle-white and pasty? Get an instant glow with Au Courant Sunles Tanning

Au Courant Instant Tanning Mousse Review: " I think most people would be hard pushed to guess it was fake. Thumbs Up " 

Au Courant Tanning products mentioned in Sunday Magazine Sydney Australia

Au Courant mentioned in Sunday Magazine Sydney Australia.
"The all-time favourite self-tanning product in the Aguilera camp is Au Courant, the original Baywatch bronzing product.
"It's one of the best products out there," says Sollitto. "It's green-based, so it comes out looking like your skin - not orange as many tanners do. It also comes out of the bottle dark, so you can see where you are putting it. Then it becomes darker on the skin over time."

It is really expensive but gives a much more natural tan than the “orangey” glow that so many do. "

" I’m not getting paid for this but, if you are wondering what sunless tanning lotion I use it is Au Courant. It is really expensive but gives a much more natural tan than the “orangey” glow that so many do. "
