I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like to look like a glowing goddess all year. Because I rlly do. I’ve tried literally every tanning product known to man and these are the best ones I’ve found. For reference, my skin tone is medium and I am olive. I like to keep things simple and I don’t like blotchy tans!!
I also have a YouTube video discussing all of my favorite tanners & details on how I apply them so they perform best!
These are in no particular order because I love them all the same.
Loving Tan 2 Hr Express
I HATE the way tans smell & this one dries down so quick (in a good way- you still have time to blend it out) and you can wash it off in 2 hours it’s a real blessing. It leaves the BEST color behind that lasts on me about a week before it gets a little patchy and wants to come off. It is a bit pricey but I think it’s worth it because they last so long. I’ve gone through SO MANY OF THESE!!! They also have a variety of different colors for people of all skin tones and undertones.
Jergens Instant Sun
This one won’t hurt your pockets and looks phenomenal!!!! I LOVE THIS ONE. Especially for the price- I can always find it under or around $12 and it lasts me a little longer than Loving Tan.
Hempz Skin Glow Moisturizer
This thing… omg. This will change your life. I always put on lotion after my showers because my skin feels so dry & this is usually the one I go for, for 2 reasons: it hydrates my skin while also giving me a good glow. It’s SO AFFORDABLE. After 1 use you can tell a difference but after about 3 uses your skin is really glowing and bronze. I also like this one because it’s a lotion, so it settles into the skin nicely and doesn’t smell bad. If I want extra moisture I mix in a few drops of Argan oil!
Sol Body Hydrating Lotion
This one is similar to the Hempz in the fact that it builds up over time but this one does have a nice coconut smell. You don’t get as much product but it gets me a little tanner faster. I find it a little more drying on the skin so I definitely recommend mixing it with oil!
In about 3 uses I’m DARK when using this one. It’s pretty cheap too!
Each of these are really good and I use them in rotation all the time. I believe if you purchase any of them, you will not be disappointed. I am also going to link my favorite mitt you can use to ensure you get even coverage for a perfect glow!
