The 10 Best Self Tanning Products

Sharing is caring!

Yes summer time is here and though we scurry to the beach to get that nice tan, we forget the UVA/UVB rays are not our friends. Skin health always comes first so it’s best to stay out of the sun and fake it with a sunless tan. There are several great self tanning products which I’ve tested, that will give you a nice, even tan and won’t leave you looking like a carrot.

Here are my top 10 picks of the best self tanning products!

  1. L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Any Angle Self-Tanning Spray– It has an easy self application and I love the fact that it doesn’t get on your hands. It applies evenly and it goes on quickly.
  2. Kate Sommerville Somer360 Tanning Towlette ($6)– It’s a great self-tanning product for travel.
  3. Aveeno Continuous Radiance Moisturizing Lotion ($11.99)– I love that added moisture with the tanning product and it leaves no streaks! You’re left with a nice sun kiss glow.
  4. Bliss A Tan For All Seasons ($36)– The name describes it perfectly. You can use it for any season especially during the winter months. It’s very easy to use and it doesn’t come off.
  5. Tan Towel Classic Self-Tan Towelettes ($21)– I love this self-tanner and it’s my go to product all year round.  I am african american but I do have some uneven areas so it blends with my skintone very well. It has a nice, citrus scent and will give you a sunkissed glow in just a few hours.

  1. Did you review the Solerra Tanning Mitts? Those are the best and a cut above the towelettes in their application and formula….I love their products and wish every one would try them!

  2. I have used L'oreal before. I have found another good self tanning lotion. It's from a brand that is expert in mineral cosmetology. They call it Glam Glow. It gives natural looking golden tan. Doesn't stains the hands.
