As someone who thrives by a beach, it’s no surprise I feel most confident with a tan. Whether I’m prepping for an upcoming vacay, a big event, or simply want to feel a boost of confidence, a spray tan always elevates my mood. While the days of tanning beds are long, long, behind us, a fabulous self-tanner is the perfect remedy for achieving a glamorous and natural-looking glow.
Today we’re diving into the world of self-tanners, the holy grail for achieving a flawless tan from the comfort of your own home. While I am ashamed to admit, it took me a while to find the perfect non-UV ray tan (Facebook loves to send me reminders of the overtly orange chapter of my 2007 life), I’ve tested out dozens of self-tanners over the years and am excited to share my favorites!
From trial and error to blog partnerships or recommendations from my friends, these are my trusted favorites that I know you will love as well! While I still prefer the mousse over lotions and drops, these are all amazing options and I recommend trying each type to see which one is easier for you to apply! Say goodbye to streaky orange disasters of the past and get ready to discover the best self-tanners that will leave you feeling confident and radiant!
Tip: Don’t forget to snag a mit like this one from St Tropez or this one from Amazon. While it helps prevent your hands from tanning, a deep wash with Dawn Dishwashing Soap after helps prevent the awkward self-tanning hands best!
St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse
If you’re after a foolproof self-tanning experience, look no further than the St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. This iconic tanning product is my personal favorite and go-to tanner. Its velvety mousse texture blends like a dream, leaving you with a streak-free, long-lasting tan. The formula is also enriched with hydrating ingredients, so your skin stays moisturized and glowing.
Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun
When it comes to a quick and convenient self-tanning option, Jergens Instant Sun Glow is my go-to choice. This affordable and widely available product offers a gradual, natural-looking tan that builds with each application. I tend to use this product in the winter when I want a lighter tan than the St. Tropez, or when I need to grab a self-tanner at the local CVS while traveling! The lightweight lotion is infused with moisturizers, ensuring your skin stays hydrated and supple while achieving a beautiful, sun-kissed radiance.
Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse
Let’s start with a true gem in the world of self-tanning: Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse. After my girlfriends recommended this product, I was hooked. This lightweight mousse glides effortlessly onto the skin, delivering a natural, golden tan. Its fast-drying formula ensures you won’t have to wait around, and the color guide helps you achieve an even application every time. Plus, the heavenly coconut scent is an added bonus!
Vita Liberata Self Tanning Mousse
For those seeking a luxurious self-tanning experience, look no further than the Vita Liberata Self Tanning Mousse. This high-end product delivers a flawless and natural-looking tan with its lightweight and easy-to-apply mousse formula. Infused with organic and nourishing ingredients like aloe vera and hyaluronic acid, it not only provides a beautiful tan but also hydrates and cares for your skin. The fast-drying formula ensures minimal transfer onto clothing, and the long-lasting color develops gradually for a seamless tan that lasts.
Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops
For those who prefer a customizable approach to self-tanning, the Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops are a game-changer. These innovative drops allow you to tailor your tan by adding them to your favorite moisturizer or body lotion. With three different color-correcting options (light, medium, and dark), you can effortlessly achieve your desired depth of tan while ensuring a natural-looking finish.
