The Best Self Tanners:
Since we are all well aware of the dangers of tanning beds, and too much time exposed to natural sunlight, self-tanners are the next best thing. When the pastiness of the cooler months starts to get a little too much for us who love that golden glow, we turn to self-tanners.
With the season quickly creeping upon us, knowing which self-tanning products look the most natural will help us all.
Unfortunately, not all self-tanners are created equally. Believe me, I have had streaks that would make you run the other way. Finding a self-tanner that doesn’t streak and don’t make us look like an orange disaster can often be a task for even the most experienced beauty lovers.
Beauty brands have finally come up with the latest innovative products to make the process super easy for anyone to be able to do at home. Here are the best products so you don’t end up in a streaky, orange mess after you self tan.
For the face:
St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Face Sheet Mask $10 CAD
Instead of worrying if your moisturizer and your self-tanner and going to jive with one another, this face mask works incredibly. Just pop this baby on for 5-15 minutes and voila!
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Gradual Glow Pad Self-Tanner for Face $49 CAD
Need not to worry about forgetting to exfoliate before applying this face tanner as it has an exfoliant already in the wipe. Genius!
For the body:
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Spray $16 CAD
This can be purchased at any drugstore and is super affordable. This is a convenient spray-on bronzer that is perfect if last minute, you decide to wear a dress and need a little extra colour on your legs.
Tarte Brazilliance Plus+ Self Tanner $48 CAD
The convenience of the mitt applicator that is included with this self-tanner ensures an all over golden goddess look that can be used from head to toe. It also doesn’t transfer to clothing which is a bonus if you want to wear light coloured clothing.
Benefit Hoola Zero Tan Lines All Over Body Bronzer $40, CAD
This bronzer is one-time use. It is not a bronzer that lasts 5-7 days like a typical self-tanner. However, this gel-based bronzer includes a sponge applicator that ensures the application is streak-proof. It doesn’t transfer to clothing and stays put until you wash it off with soap.
St. Tropez In-Shower Golden Glow Gradual Tan $35 CAD
It doesn’t get much easier than this. No mess, no staining of towels, just apply in the shower and gradually build up that beautiful tan.
Tan Towel Half Body Classic Self-Tan Towelettes $39 CAD
These little towelettes are a fantastic time saver when you are in a rush. One towelette is enough to tan half of your body in a matter of minutes. I always keep a package of these on hand as they are so convenient.
