ESSENTIALS & ENHANCEMENTS FAQs

How many applications in a bottle of Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan

It is difficult to say how many applications are in the bottle because people may not use the Foaming Sunless Tan over their entire body. Also, a petite woman will use far less than a large man. The good news is that our dual-active formula ensures even, natural-looking colour without exposure to the harmful UVA and UVB rays.

How should I apply Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan on my face?

To apply it on the face, first cleanse the face, then gently massage the ENHANCEMENTS MicroDermabrasion Paste on wet or dry skin. Rinse and pat dry. Apply the ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan as directed on your face, then follow with a moisturiser and sunscreen if applied during the day. Don’t forget the last step of your skincare routine to protect and perfect your glowing skin with Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid Broad Spectrum SPF 25.

How do I use Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan on my body?

1. Take a shower and use ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste to exfoliate every part of your body where you will be applying our ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan. (Note: If you shave your legs, do so at least 6 hours before applying ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan. Shaving after you apply will reduce the life of your glow.)

2. Focus on one area at a time, apply 1-2 pumps of Foaming Sunless Tan into hand and rub onto skin. Begin at the centre and blend outward. Use sparingly around hands, elbow, knees and ankles. Wash palms immediately after application. If you do make a mistake, non-acetone-based nail polish remover can be used to remove any unintended colour.

3. Allow Foaming Sunless Tan to dry to the touch before getting dressed. If you can wait 15 minutes or so before getting dressed, that’s even better. Avoid wearing tight fitting clothing over your Sunless Tan for 3-4 hours after application to allow colour to develop evenly.

4. After 3-4 hours, apply ESSENTIALS Daily Body Moisturizer, to extend the life of your tan and keep your skin moisturised, softer, and healthy looking. Continue applying the moisturiser over the next three days to extend the life of your tan because Foaming Sunless Tan and Daily Body Moisturizer both contain RFDcell that nurtures healthy cells and helps extends the duration of your faux glow.

Finally, understand that colour develops as the proteins on your skin respond to the colour-inducing ingredients in Foaming Sunless Tan. This response creates the notorious smell that is often associated with self-tanning products, so it’s a good idea to apply Foaming Sunless Tan at bedtime, and to sleep in loose fitting pyjamas and then shower in the morning.

How does Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan work?

Foaming Sunless Tan provides your skin with sun-kissed natural looking glow as the proteins on your skin respond to the colour-inducing ingredients in the product. Our dual-active Foaming Sunless Tan contains RF-Dcell Technology, which prolongs your sunless tan by calming climate-induced stressors that may rob skin of moisture and colour. The end result? A radiant, long-lasting self-tan.

Why did the doctors develop essentials Foaming Sunless Tan? (Dermatologist Insight)

The Doctors know that many consumers like having a natural-looking tan but also know how important it is not to expose skin to the harmful, ageing effects of the sun’s UVA/UVB rays. With the launch of R+F ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan, the Doctors harnessed the power of science to create this product as a safer way to achieve a long-lasting summer bronze without the risk of sunburn, age spots, freckling, dryness, or crepey skin.

ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and shaving

Use ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste on damp skin before shaving to set up hair for a close shave. This salt and sugar scrub can also buff off dead skin that increases a smooth shave and decreases razor burn.

For best results, use SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment, which is an excellent aftershave for men with sensitive skin or for those who just want to alleviate razor irritation associated with dryness.

Can I use ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum together?

Once your skin has acclimated to nightly usage of REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum, you can introduce ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste in the morning one to three times a week in the morning as tolerated.

If you have sensitive skin we do not recommend you use REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum or ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.
