As summer fades into fall, our golden tans will begin to disappear. Now is the time to start looking into a great self-tanner to get you through the winter! I am very pale naturally and struggle to keep any color I may have obtained from summer. While, I do not condone indoor tanning, I can tell there is a slight difference in color between the seasons. I have tried almost every self-tanning spray, lotion, gel and butter there is. Here is a list of my favorite self-tanners:
Fake Bake Instant Self Tanning Spray $32.00 This spray is PERFECT for a quick last minute tan. The application is easy and the product offers a natural looking tan. Fake Bake uses two self-tanners blended together to give you an instant tan and a deeper tan that will develop over a few hours. This product lasts about 5-7 days depending on how often you bathe or sweat. Keep in mind that this product needs to dry completely before you get dressed. Also, make sure to apply this product in a well-ventilated space and I highly suggest standing on a towel you don’t really care for. If you happen to get it all over your bathroom, like I did, just use a damp cloth or paper towel.
Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner $36.00 I cannot express how much I love Jane Iredale. (Their BB cream is amazing but that will have to wait for another blog) This is one of the BEST self-tanning products I have ever used. Colored with Radish root extract, this is completely natural and non-comodegenic. It leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated while providing a really natural looking tan that you can build to your preferred color. Best of all, it is gentle enough to use on the face!
Jan Marini BioGlycolic Sunless Self Tanner $28.00 Jan Marini has gained critical acclaim and is known as one of best anti-aging skincare lines available. As with any other tanning lotion, it leaves the skin feeling silky and smooth. However, this lotion contains Glycolic Acid to penetrate deeper, color faster and last longer which sets it apart from the run of the mill tanning lotions. And it is a great price point as well.
Tan Towel Express Tan Kit $30.00 Hopping a plane to Vegas, Cabo or L.A? Make sure to grab this kit! Great for a weekend getaway or special occasion, Tan Towels are perfect for on the go. Individually portioned and packaged, they can fit in your suitcase, gym bag or purse. The kit comes with the Original Half Body Tan Towel and the Express Tanning Mist to give an allover luxurious tan.
