The indispensable accessory

The Bronz’Express Self-Tanner Applicator Glove allows an easy and perfect application of your self-tanning product.

The glove’s velvety side gives an even, streak free application. It also provides a water resistant barrier to protect your hands from possible staining. The glove is reusable and can be machine washed at 40°C. Keep away from heat during drying.

Generously moisten the glove with your self-tanning product and evenly apply to the face and/or the body. Avoid eyebrows and hairline. To avoid staining, apply product sparingly on specific zones such as neck, elbows, knees and heels. If necessary, remove the excess with a dry cotton pad.


10 Tanning Tips



Before you apply your self-tanner, do not forget to exfoliate your body and/or face. Particularly insist on rough spots such as the knees, the elbows, the ankles and the heels to make sure you get rid of any dead cells.

10 Tanning Tips



Before you apply your self-tanning product, be sure you give your skin a good dose of hydration (particularly after scrubbing) as dry skin can make your take look uneven. Obviously, be particularly zealous when you apply your moisturizer to the rough areas of your body (knees, ankles, elbows, heels) and do not forget the hands and toes. Wait until your moisturizer is perfectly absorbed before you apply your self-tanner.

10 Tanning Tips


Get smooth

If you wish to shave or wax your legs, make sure you do it at least 24 hours before you apply your self-tanner. This will give an extra exfoliation to your skin so do not forget to moisturize it right after so that it can be soft, smooth and ready to be tanned.

10 Tanning Tips



To avoid excess tanning, protect your nails and cuticles both hands and feet with a dab of moisturizer and also apply lip balm.

10 Tanning Tips


Get the right move

For optimal results, use our Self-Tanner Applicator Glove. Furthermore, since it provides a water resistant barrier, your hands will be protected from staining. Generously moisten the glove with your self-tanning product. Squeeze the glove several times to spread the product and then softly apply your self-tanner with light circular movements, first on the zones that are naturally more inclined to get exposed to the sun then, on more “hidden” zones such as the back of the knee to give your tan a perfectly natural appearance. Delicately apply your self-tanner, do not rub it in.

10 Tanning Tips


Get a good start

When applying your self-tanner, always go from the bottom of your body to the top. Apply to the armpits, knees, arm creases when you have less product on your glove. For the face, start with the cheeks, the neck, the back of the neck, the ears and the décolleté before moving to the forehead, the hairline and eyebrows. And do not forget to carefully wash your hands with cold water once you have finished.

10 Tanning Tips



If you feel like you have overdone your tanning or are afraid that rough spots, hairline or eyebrows get overtanned, do not hesitate to remove the excess of product with a dry cotton pad that you will gently apply to the designated areas patting off the product carefully, not rubbing it in.

10 Tanning Tips


Be patient

Your tan will develop within 3 to 4 hours so, in the meantime, avoid bathing, showering or practicing sports to make sure the colour of your tan is not altered. Once your tan has fully developed, you can shower and apply your moisturizer.

10 Tanning Tips


Maintain your tan

Just like natural tan, Bronz’Express tan fades away after a few days. If you wish to keep a sunkissed golden skin, apply your Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion or Tinted Self-Tanning Gel two days a week. With our Magic Radiance Drops, simply keep on mixing the same amount of drops to your skincare product. Do not forget to keep on exfoliating your skin every week and moisturizing it the day before you apply your self-tanner.

10 Tanning Tips


Build up

If you want your tan to get darker, apply your Self-Tanning Tinted Lotion or Self-Tanning Tinted Gel every other day until you reach the desired tan. For the Magic Radiance Drops, simply increase the number of drops you add to your skincare product until you reach the expected tan.

History of a cult lotion

Inimitable, unrivalled and unique, the Bronz’Express Lotion has turned its name into a myth, that of an already cult new brand.


The revolution

Launched in 1960 by Académie Scientifique de Beauté, the Bronz’Express Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion totally shook the world of cosmetics. It was then the first liquid self-tanner giving an immediate effect and it quickly became known under the evocative nickname of “Eau qui bronze” (“Tanning water”).

Thanks to its soft ylang-ylang perfume (a revolution for a self-tanner since most had and sometimes still have a hard to hide unpleasant smell) and its uncontested results, the Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion immediately established itself in the beauty rituals of women all over the world.

Often imitated but never equalled, the Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion saw its look evolve through the years but its formula has remained unchanged since 1960 just like its success: today, a bottle is sold every minute!

In almost sixty years, the Bronz’Express Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion went from the status of cosmetic breakthrough that of a mythical self-tanner and the name Bronz’Express is now recognised worldwide as a synonym of expertise and natural looking tan.

To offer a variety of pleasures and satisfy all the expectations, the expertise contained in the Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion has been added to different textures recognisable by the emblematic Bronz’Express caramel colour: the Tinted Self-Tanning Gel and the Magic Radiance Drops.

Glowing with expertise, Bronz’Express has naturally become the brand of cult self-tanners.


What is DHA?

A key active ingredient of Bronz’Express self-tanners, DHA deserves to be put in the limelight

Dihydroxyacetone hides behind the acronym DHA, the fundamental component of Bronz’Express self-tanners. Unlike the natural tanning process which acts on melanocytes and stimulates the production of melanin, DHA acts on the keratin present in the corneous layer of the skin, its most external part. Since it does not penetrate the inner layers of the epidermis, the use of DHA is risk-free.

DHA gives you a beautiful golden tan thanks to what is called the Maillard reaction: when in contact with it, the skin’s amines, peptides and amino acids get coloured. Since DHA only tints the corneous layer of the epidermis, the tan it creates fades as naturally as a sun induced tan.

We advise you to exfoliate the skin the day before you apply your Bronz’Express self-tanner in order to get rid of dead cells so that the DHA acts properly and brings you an even tan. Caution though, DHA and Bronz’Express self-tanners do not contain a sunscreen and do not protect against sunburn.
