10 fake tans that’ll give you a gorgeous summer bronze in just a few minutes.
St. Tropez Instant Tan Wash Off Face & Body Lotion
Avoid the fake tan faux pas of forgetting your face by using this transfer-resistant lotion. Just don’t forget to cover your ears and go all the way up to your hairline!
Ella Bache Great Tan Without Sun
The tinted lotion will give your skin colour as soon as it’s applied and it’s enriched with skin-loving ingredients like vitamin E and green tea extract. And how cute is the packaging?!
pureTAN Instant Wash Off Bronzer
Say hello to your I’m-going-out-in-10-minutes-and-need-some-colour-now solution. The chocolatey-brown lotion glides on to leave your limbs looking like sun-kissed perfection. It also washes off like a dream.
Australis One Night Tan Wash Off Mousse
Apply this lightweight foam with a mitt and you’re set for a day (or night) of bronzed, tanned goodness. And the formula is quick drying, so you don’t have to leave much time for it to set.
Michael Kors Liquid Tan Self Tanner
This luxe formula features notes of orange flower, jasmine and cassis, and quickly develops into a deep, golden colour. It’s definitely one for those who want a bold result.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
Okay, so technically this one isn’t a tan, it’s more like make-up for legs. But that just means it’ll give your skin extra colour and help cover imperfections like bruises or scars. Sounds like a win to us.
