Beauty Jobs – The Top Sunless Tan Options for Summer

Whether it feels like it or not (looking at you, unpredictable Canadian weather) summer 2017 has officially touched down. BNTF is very well acquainted with the dangers of harmful UVA/UVB rays and advocates the practice of safe sun by using SPF daily. We have compiled a list of the best self-tanners ranging from luxury brands, drugstore steals, eco-friendly options, etc. to get you bronzed up literally overnight. Get your glow on without damaging your skin in the long run by reading on below!

Worth the Splurge

Start your summer off glowing the right way. Dior’s foolproof self-tanner is raved about online for good reason! The gel-based formula makes it easy to blend evenly over the entire body — it also intensifies gradually throughout the day. To keep up your skin’s newfound bronze radiance, apply two to three times throughout the week.

#1 Drugstore Self-Tanner

Beauty aficionado Paula Begoun is known for her science-backed skincare line Paula’s Choice. What isn’t as well-known is her amazingly affordable Sun 365 Self-Tanning Foam. For only $16 a pop, you can get your hands on this lightweight, odourless, self-tanner for use on the face and body.

Eco-Friendly? Yes, please!

Eco-babes rejoice! We found the perfect vegan, cruelty-free and certified organic self-tanner for you to try this summer. The Invisible Tan by Australian company ECO-Tan has received countless beauty awards throughout the years and is the go-to product for many conscious women and men around the world. The brand also carries before and after care products to extend your glow as long as possible.

Handy Dandy Towelettes

Don’t have patience for all the liquid foams, gels, sprays and mists on the market? These large (9 square inches!) towelettes are the perfect option for full body self-tan applications. Simply run the towelettes over clean dry, skin and allow the quick-drying formula to develop over the next eight hours. What truly makes TanTowel a winner is the fact that they’re travel-friendly!

 

No Time, No Problem

BNTF has discovered the best 15-minute “self-tanning” beauty hack for Summer 2017. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs is essentially liquid pantyhose, it matches your skin tone and smoothes over your body’s complexion, covers veins, blemishes etc. all while being non-transferable and water resistant. By going a shade or two deeper than your actual skin tone you create an instant glow that will last all day long.

Tried and True

Let’s be real, is a self-tanner review legit if it doesn’t mention the iconic St. Tropez Self Tan? If you’re new to the world of self-tanning and are willing to spend a little more than you would at the drugstore look no further. A quick Google search will show you the thousands upon thousands of reviews on the St. Tropez line that promises non-orange, long lasting, summer ready bronze skin from head to toe.

 

Super Moisturized Glow

Jergens Natural Glow is a drugstore self-tanning line that’s been around for ages. They stepped up their game this summer with the release of their Wet Skin Self Tanning Moisturizer. As soon as you step out of the shower apply this gradual tanner all over body for a glow that lasts up to three days. Smooth, tan and touchable skin in just a few steps!

 

BONUS: Don’t get too messy

FYI sunless tanners can get pretty messy and stain your palms, knuckles and even under your fingernails. Keep it tidy by using this huge version of the Beauty Blender called the body.sponge. It has the same much-loved texture of the Beauty Blender but is large enough to efficiently cover large areas of your body.
