The latest super-hydrating self tanners glide on effortlessly (so say goodbye to streaks and patchiness) to deliver banging body glow. With everything from enviable holiday-tan creators to buildable, natural-looking golden makers and one-wear finishing gloss (perfect for adding a gorgeous sheen), these are our top picks for getting bronzed and keeping your skin nourished in the same hit this summer.
Bondi Sands Protect & Tan
Talk about a quadruple threat! This tanning spritz develops to a stunning golden shade, delivers SPF 15 sun protection, the oil formula keeps skin silky soft, and the scent? It’s like summer bottled.
Le Tan Ultra Dark Self Tanning Spray
If the darker the better is your self tanning motto then meet your match. The green-based formula coats you in a beautiful olive shade and the added moisturising ingredients pamper in the process.
Skinny Tan Tan & Tone Oil
Your skin will drink up the addition of coconut oil and guarana in this hydrating – and also toning! – self tanning oil. Plus, it’s eco-certified (read: it contains naturally derived tanning agents).
St. Tropez Instant Tan Finishing Gloss
For the commitment-phobe or last-minute tanners out there, this instant tanner is a must. The glossy sheen it gives skin is more than just surface-level, and the formula is non-sticky and quick drying so you won’t be left feeling like a greasy mess.
Josie Maran Argan Liquid Gold Self-Tanning Oil
As if the combo of argan oil and coconut water wasn’t enough to nourish your skin, aloe juice brings an extra hit of soothing benefits in this sun-kissed creating self tanning oil.
