Airbrush Makeup Review: Glow Fusion Air Glow Air Gun (for tanning)

An extremely affordable option for tanning, the Glow Fusion Air Glow Air Gun retails at $175 but is frequently discounted to less than $50. Apart from the price the Air Gun is not really competitive with the other major brands because it isn’t quite up to the standard of manufacturing. The gun itself is not bad but is clogged easily and can feel a little flimsy in the hand. This is why we always emphasize the importance of care and cleaning! Once you get a good technique going though it is possible to achieve a decent result. Remember, you have to ensure that the airgun is kept absolutely, spotlessly clean otherwise it will splutter.

One big issue is with the Glow Fusion solution (comes with the kit) which can produce an uneven, streaky effect when used with this airgun since it is prone to clogging. It is also smelly! However, the manufacturer does assure us that it is ‘dermatologist recommended’ and non-comedogenic. Keep in mind though the warning on the bottle ‘keep away from open flames’and ‘avoid contact with the eyes’. Most likely this is because it is an alcohol based tanner… Alcohol based makeup can have an irritating effect on the skin. Some people have suggested using the Ocean Sunless Airbrush Tanning solution (such as the 8.5 DHA) which has reportedly produced better results than the Glow Fusion solution provided. Though we’ve yet to experiment with this, it may be an affordable option which produces a great result. Let us know if you’ve tried it.

Overall, for the price currently quoted on Amazon the Glow Fusion is a steal. You will have to put in the work to get a good result though which means plenty of exfoliating and cleaning!
