Madame LA LA is an American-Brit self tanning line that promises ‘Old Hollywood’ glamour with a glowy tan you can have year round. This line gets inspiration from the tanned goddesses in LA who exude youth, health, and well-being. At the same time, it incorporates a French and British sense of style and culture. You know all about BB creams that are skin care and light makeup in one, and CC creams that color correct. Well, these self tanners are DD creams – Dynamic Do-all potions that treat and color correct all in one. They sent the BIZ their Light Self Tanning Mousse to try.
Anything that has ‘DD’ as a descriptor gets my hubby’s vote, but I’m not so easy. This ‘DD’ Dynamic Do-all promises immediate gratification with instant bronzer, a long-lasting self-tan in 3 hours, and mega skin hydration with coco water, aloe, green tea and vitamin E.
The foamy mousse dries super quick – in fact, I had quite a bronze patch on my palm just from the time it took to take this photo. This is a great faux-tanner for lighter skin tones. It starts off as an instant bronzer, then becomes a light golden brown shade that evens skin tone, covers stretch marks, and makes me look a little thinner. On me, I found that an all-over application lasts about 7 days before I need to reapply to deepen and brighten the color. It fades evenly without patchiness so the tan looks totally natural.
The coco water hydrates skin and improves elasticity. Vitamins A and E are antioxidants that fight off free radicals and increase collagen production. Aloe vera and green tea moisturize and reduce inflammation and irritation.
Madame LA LA gets a thumbs up from the hubby, who is always in favor of double D’s, and it gets a thumbs up from me for being an easy to use self tanner that definitely multi-tasks. If you are in the market for a self tanner, this is a great choice that delivers instant bronze, a long-lasting self tan, and a skin treatment all in one. They do offer international shipping, so everyone can have a glowy LA tan. – Lisa
