In this day and age we all know about the dangers of tanning in the sun; fortunately sunless tanners have come a long way from the orange streak inducing formulas of old! As soon as the weather gets warm I immediately want to be 3 shades darker to compliment all the white clothes I’ll be wearing.
DISCLAIMER: I am all about embracing you as you are, and you should never ever feel any pressure to change that! I am also all about confidence and personally in the summer I feel more confident with a bronze glow. However, I’m all about doing it in the healthiest way possible!
If you have never used Lorac products, they give some of the deepest tans- whether it’s the tanner, or a powder bronzer. This tanner does get a bit of the self-tanner smell, but after you shower it goes away and leaves a smooth deep tan.
I discovered FakeBake Flawless two years ago on Amazon while browsing and it has been a go to for me! This works well for body and face, and doesn’t transfer all over your white sheets while it sets.
Maui Babe browning lotion is NOT a self tanner, however it gives a great brown tint for those times you immediately need more colour. You are supposed to use it like a tanning oil, but I find myself using it as a lotion instead in the summer. It has a fantastic smell and is uber moisturizing.
Last but not least, is the quintessential St Tropez. This brand has over a dozen different formulas, but this one to three hour option is my favourite offering from them. I love to start with just an hour application, and then leave on for an extended amount of time over the next few applications to build the colour evenly.
All of these products I highly recommend, however the best self tanner I have ever used is by far Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Infused Self Tanner! The included mitt is velvet for easy application, and the formula has a golden colour tint so you can see exactly where you have applied it. Plus, the Argan oil is so moisturizing! This formula is so popular, that at the moment it’s only available on Josie Maran’s site.
Is anyone else a bronze addict? I’m going to try my best to stay sun free this season. Hopefully these products will help me to do so!
Happy Monday gorgeous gals and I hope you have a fantastic week loves.
