The ULTIMITT from Thermalabs Review


I initially received this product to use in conjunction with their self-tanner, but in order to give the Ultimitt a fair review, I decided to try this with a self-tanner that I currently own from Banana Boat.

The mitt itself is incredibly soft and covers my hand down past my wrist, hitting somewhere on my forearm. It is made of microfiber and is very flexible. It is meant to protect your hands from getting stained from self-tanning and also to help provide a more streak-free tan. You can use both sides of it as well. It comes with it’s own plastic carrying bag and also a tiny little mini mitt that is perfect for using to touch up spots or for the tops of your hands and feet. It also comes with a one full year money back guarantee.

Here is what you get with the initial kit:

This is the tanner that I used to test this item for this blog:

Normally when I use this particular tanner, I get a very deep and almost unnatural tan. I was pleasantly surprised that the Thermamitt , gave me a very natural look and that there was no streaking whatsoever. I also did not have to worry about my hands looking odd due to the stain of the tanner. The only really negative thing I can say about this mitt is that you might be using/wasting more product since it is very absorbent. Cleanup however, is very easy. You just have to rinse and wash it with some mild soap.

Here are my results that I tested on my arms:

I included the bottom pictures to show the natural color of my skin. If I had not suffered from several abrasions picking raspberries, I would have used the small mitt to fix these areas.

I think the Ultimitt is a quality product and I do recommend it for those that self-tan. It is available on Amazon here:

It now retails for 14.99 with free shipping with Amazon prime.

I received this product free for testing purposes and an honest and unbiased review. All opinions are strictly my own.



Thermalabs The Golden Standard! Natural Self-Tanner Review


For almost the past two months, I have been testing this self-tanner from Thermalabs that I received at a discount for an honest and unbiased review. Here are the claims of the company.

This tanner contains certified organic ingredients such as olive and avocado oils, shea butter, cocoa seed butter and aloe leaf juice. It is supposed to provide an even and natural looking tan without the damaging rays of the sun. It is a moisturizing, natural, organic superior lotion that builds a natural tan without streaks. It creates the perfect and smoothest sun free tan. It does come with a 100% guarantee if you ship it back, you get the refund.

I was actually excited to try this. I have been home tanning with sunless tanners for about 15 years, so I knew how to use these types of products. It comes with an E-book explaining the dangers of the sun and tanning beds and offers tips on getting the best tan possible using their product. I followed all of the directions, including making sure my skin was properly exfoliated beforehand.  Get ready for some pictures of my ugly legs, but I wanted to test this product on an area first that I could cover up if need be.Smart thinking on my part. I do not have any pictures of my first attempts, but that is of no matter.

Here is my leg prepped and ready to go.

before tanning

According to the directions, you apply the tanner with your hands in all directions and it is supposed to absorb within five minutes. I kept my pant leg rolled up for at least 30 minutes just to make sure, because it did take longer. It is a pleasant, almost citrus smelling formula and is a white cream. Shown on leg here:

You are supposed to wait overnight for the tan to fully develop and it also should continue developing over the next few days, or you can re-apply to maintain the look. This next picture shows what results I achieved with using only my hands.

streaky leg

Pretty streaky right? and patchy as well. Wanna see my foot? Please excuse the pedi.

awful toes

This is just awful. The thing about this tanner is that at least on my skin, it lasts two weeks. The first time I applied it, I tried to fix the streakiness by reapplying to those spots and the ones it completely missed, but the results were even worse.

At the time of the promotion, they were offering a free coupon code for their Ultimitt, I asked about it and they were out of stock, but would get one to me asap. That took forever. I did use that however, and will in a future blog using a different tanner review that product. Here is what the mitt looks like:

I thought for sure with this product I would get ultimate results, and I would not have the problem of streaking any longer. Well, that was not the case. In fact, only one side of my leg tanned and the other remained mostly its original shade. The product still streaked on me!

This is the side of my left leg that tanned. Here is the other side:

one side did not tan

Nothing going on here! I don’t know if my body just will not work with this formula or it is a bad product. I was afraid of trying it anywhere else that could not be hidden by clothing and that I could show acceptable photos of. Something else I should mention, the first time I applied it, and every time after, it did not transfer to my clothing, but it did transfer to my left leg which I had applied no tanner whatsoever to.Ugh!

I am done with this product, and will likely pass what is left over in the bottle to a friend and see if they get better results, if they are brave enough to try. Now I have to wait until this fades, so that I may review the mitt on its own with a tanner I currently own.

The product retails on Amazon for 22.98 and has free Amazon prime shipping. Here is the link:*Version*=1&*entries*=0
