Self tanners have come a long way, baby. Years ago they were difficult to apply, smelled horrific, and turned you an unnatural looking orange. There are some truly great options out there today, options so great no one should be afraid to faux tan! I put my self tanners into two categories: one night stands (these only last until you wash them off) and marriage material (these give you more committment – at least one week). Here are my top ten self tanners. The first five are my favorite one night stands and the next five are my favorite marriages.
Four fantastic color options, this one night stand is also the perfect remedy for any bad ‘marriages’.
Oh my this is a terrific one night stand…it makes any skin flaws disappear with beautiful tint and soft shimmer.
The best liquid bronzer for the face and decolletage, hands down.
A beautiful golden tan that is waterproof (hello swimming!) but not soap proof (hello one night stand!).
There’s a reason this is a favorite of Hollywood starlets – it’s gorgeous, easy to use, and I love the beautiful golden shimmer.
I love this especially as a face tanner. The color adjusts to your skin so it’s extremely natural looking.
This sunscreen is also a gradual self tanner, which is a great way to build up to that commitment.
8. Tan Towels
See the tan lines? Tan Towels are a super convenient way to make them a thing of the past – even if you have the tan lines of a blogger.
I buy this self tanner over and over because it gives gorgeous color and I can get it in any scent I want. My most frequent pick is Day at the Beach, which is a “Coconut infused scent potion that will take you back to lazy days spent at the beach.”
This is a marriage, all right – it takes some time but it applies beautifully, gives deep dark color, and is total marriage material.
Happy faux tanning! - Lisa
