The Best Selfie Tan’n Go Super Dark Tan Review

By Tara | Updated: 08/11/2020

It has been a long time since I switched my fake tan. I have tried many brands and was on the hunt for something that could rival my favourite dark fake tan go-to, Bondi Sands.

After looking at a few reviews online about Selfie Tan’ n Go I wanted to give it a try and picked it up from my local Chemist Warehouse.

There are currently two shades available in the 1-hour Express Bronzing Mousse range; Medium Dark Tan and Super Dark Tan. For this review, I chose the Super Dark Fake Tan. I opted for the darker tan as I have had experienced in the past that the medium shades do not provide enough contrast.

Before Applying Selfie Tan

As it is winter here in Australia, I have not been able to get any sun. So I started the experiment looking very pale.

24 hours prior to the application I had exfoliated and moisturised my skin in preparation for the self-tan.

There are several tips & tricks you can use for when applying fake tan at home. Check them out here.

The Product

This is the first product in the Selfie Tan product range I have tried, so I was excited to give it a go.

The bottle came with a Selfie Tan’n Go Applicator Mitt. I was quite impressed with this as I haven’t seen many other brands include an applicator mitt with the product.

The applicator mitt was provided along with the Super Dark Tan bottle.

Here’s what it claims to do:

A little goes a long way with this product. I pumped out just a small amount of the dark fake tan and was able to spread it over my body well.

The Results

Did it Work?

On the first application of the tan, I was really shocked at how dark it was (as it was contrasting with my winter pale skin!).

As you can see from the photos, it resulted in a rich, exotic bronze colour that developed well after a few hours.

Did it do what it claims?

My New Favourite Fake Tan?

I don’t believe this will replace my favourite as the product did not seem to leave a consistent dark tan. It would be too dark (for me) to wear without washing it off once and it left virtually no colour once it had been washed off.

I am willing to give it another shot this weekend and will leave it on for over 3 hours to see if that makes a difference.

It can be quite rare to find tanning products that tick all boxes; great colour, long lasting, and seamless application. While the 1 Hour Express Bronzing Mousse provided a beautiful colour, its downfall was its longevity. That being said, if you are looking for something you can practically wash all off after wear, this could be a suitable option.
