Best Self Tanning Products: High to Low

Good afternoon lovely humans!

With this beautiful warm weather upon us, I feel it’s only natural to start talking about self tanners. Summer is the time to build a gorgeous golden glow, however, I prefer to do it safely, with self tanners. Not only is it quicker and safer, but many help to keep your skin healthy and moisturized. Laying out in the sun every single day may sound fun and relaxing, but it can cause early aging in skin, and even lead to dangerous problems, like skin cancer.

I’ve put together an easy guide to some of the best self tanners, priced from high to low! These are products that I have tried first hand and I truly think they are great!

La Mer Soleil

The highest priced self tanner that I’ve tried, but it’s matched with amazing quality! This is a gradual tanning lotion that can be used after cleansing and exfoliating skin on a daily basis until the desired color is reached. I like that it leaves a nice glow, but it’s something that needs to be done a few times. Because my skin is so fare, it did take me a couple days, but it was still a fabulous self tanner!

St. Tropez

I’ve talked about St. Tropez tanning products before, but that’s because they’re by far my favorite. The light feeling of the bronzing mouse glides on my skin with so much ease. It also is something that only takes a few hours to get the perfect color. I usually shower and exfoliate at night and then apply the tan. By the time I wake up in the morning, I’m good to go! This self tanner also lasts for about 7-10 days, which is better than others that I’ve tried!

Fake Bake

This self tanner is priced in that sweet spot area. It’s not crazy expensive, but it’s also not the least expensive either. I used this tanner a lot during my competitive all-star cheer days because it was easy to apply, much like the St. Tropez, and it only took a few hours to set in.

Jergens Daily Moisturizer  &  Jergens Wet Skins Moisturizer

Jergens is such a great brand that’s inexpensive and available at almost all grocery stores and drug stores. The daily moisturizer is another type of moisturizer that can be used gradually to reach the level of bronze. The wet skins is the same, however, it is applied directly to your wet skin (obvi) from the shower. I used this when I was in Cannes last year to cut down on time. It moisturized my skin, while slowly leaving a glowing tan.
