Lets Talk About Self Tanner

Sunday, May 19, 2019

Hey Y'all!

So excited to be talking about one of my favorite beauty buys...self tanner! I am team Fake Bake all the way. Something I am super against is tanning beds and I strongly believe in protecting your skin. I wear sunscreen everyday. I'll be sure to share my favorite sunscreen products soon, but for now I wanna talk about my favorite self tanners that help me achieve that sun kissed glow!

1. Jergens Daily Moisturizer
I have been using this stuff for over 10 years. I love that it no longer has an oder- do y'all remember when that smell was potent? This is such a great daily lotion for an all over light glow- I never feel like it brings a ton of color but it does keep me from getting pasty in the winter! I sometimes use it over my other self tanners and especially on my knees and elbows.

2. Jergens Instant Sun Mousse

This was probably the first dark self tanner I  ever used. I think it does a great job for the price. The color appears really quickly in a nice deep bronze. It does show streaks easy and it doesn't last for more than a couple days. If you are looking for a more affordable option this is  great one!

3. L'orel Sublime Bronze Gelee
I am not a fan of the smell, but it dries really quickly. Beware this product will stain if you don't wash it out fast. It's a great tanner if you want something other than a mousse or a lotion based product. I do think the color leaves you with more of an orange color than a bronze.

4.St Moriz Fast Tan Mousse

This is a product I just started using in the last couple of months. It's a St. Tropez dupe you can find at Ulta or on Amazon. I think it works really well. I am a big fan of the tanners that you wash off. This one I generally put  on at night, sleep, and wash it off in the morning. The color is fantastic. It does dry fast when you are applying so make sure you smooth it in quickly! Also you HAVE to apply with a mitt. I haven't heard great things about their mitts but I use the St. Tropez mitt and it works just fine! This is a good option if you want a deep color like St Tropez but don't want to spend double the money, just apply it very evenly and you will be a bronze goddess.

5.St Tropez Self Tan Express
My favorite body self tanner. This stuff is amazing and it doesn't streak. The color is very natural and it stays on. I generally apply only once a week and the color lasts. Its pricey but it's worth it.  You apply and wait 1 to however many hours to want to let the color soak in. I generally apply at night and shower it off in the morning, also you HAVE to apply with a mitt.  The longer you wait to shower the deeper the color. St. Tropez has a great applicator mitt thats around $6. I recommend this product to anyone who is looking for that airbrush tan that they can get at home! See below for a picture of my skin 8 hours after application

6. Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops.
Run,  don't walk to your nearest Sephora for this product. I just bought this on Friday after hearing such great things about it. I am OBSESSED. I have had such a hard time finding a self tanner for my face and this product works sooo well. You  just add these liquid drops to your normal moisturizer and then mix and spread on your face or body. This color is so good y'all. I got the Dark color so I could really build my tan, I add about 5 drops to my moisturizer. Also it doesn't come off when I wash my face which I do 2x a day! Im testing to see how long it lasts but so far so great and it hasn't made me breakout! I highly highly highly recommend as a tanner but especially if you are looking to tan your face
