This product is really easy to use! It is a little bit difficult to apply evenly, so I would recommend exfoliating really well before applying. You could definitely use a glove to apply but I just use my hands and then make sure that I wash my hands really well after. This product does wash off, so if you are looking for a weeks worth of results from one application, this self tanner is not for you. That being said when it does wash off and fade, it fades really nicely. Overall I would recommend this product, especially if you are just needing a faux tan for a special event. I do prefer the cream lotion from Tanwise over the mousse. It is just as easy to use and lasts longer.
