1. Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops – Light (from www​.boots​.com)

Isle of Paradise glow enhancing Self-Tanning Drops are easily incorporated into your existing skincare routine and are designed to be added to your favourite moisturiser to give you a natural and even looking tan. The more drops you add, the deeper the tan, offering you buildable and customisable colour. The drops are enriched with Coconut, Chia Seed and Avocado Oil which nourishes and hydrates the skin to give it a healthy, smooth finish. 100% Vegan and Cruelty free!

You don’t have to worry about it being streaky as it gives you a really beautiful, natural glow and colour. It also makes your skin feel and look amazing. You may want to use this product in conjunction with other self-tanners (like a mousse). Self-tanners tend to stay on longer if your skin is super moisturised, so this product can actually extend the length of your self-tanner. But, and this is a big but, there’s a odour to it that takes at least 3 days to dissipate.


2. Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Self Tan Foam (from www​.boots​.com)
Having recently won the award for best new self-tan’, the Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Tanning Foam has been breaking sales records with many claiming the tan to be their favourite one to date. A dream to apply, the tan melts into the skin within seconds to leave you with a golden glow that’s touch-dry, meaning you can get dressed without worrying it will come off on clothes. Enriched with argan and coconut oils, which work to hydrate the skin and gives it a glowing sheen-like effect. If you prefer the feeling of a tanning oil, you will love the brand’s Liquid Gold Oil instead, which absorbs instantly so it doesn’t leave any greasy residue behind.

3. Tan-Luxe Super Glow Body Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum (from www​.feelu​nique​.com)
Get that authentic summer glow with the Super Glow Body Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum from Tan-Luxe. Intensely hydrating, the formula contains Hyaluronic Acid that carries up to 1000x its weight in water to deliver maximum moisture to the skin, smoothing it out and giving a luminous, golden glow. The Serum not only tans the skin, but uses Caffeine to firm it, leaving you looking toned and summer ready.

4. St. Tropez Self Tan Whipped Marshmallow Bronzing Mousse (www​.pret​tylit​tlething​.com)
This mousse smells super sweet and delicious. As it’s the same formula as the original St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse, which needs to sit on the skin for four to eight hours before being washed off. Leaving the skin looking beautifully bronzed and glowing, this is perfect for anyone who hates the traditional smell of fake tan.


5. Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2 – 3 Week Tan (from www​.boots​.com)
This product has been hailed as a tanning miracle, due to its long-lasting properties which means you don’t need to top-up. For this reason, this’ll be your favourite holiday tan product as it won’t fade or go patchy. As with all Vita Liberata products, it gives you a clean tan that’s enriched with hydrating botanicals as opposed to chemical nasties, so is great for anyone with sensitive skin. For best results, apply over three nights to build up so it lasts for two to three weeks.

Self-tanners aren’t created equal. Low-quality products and improper use can leave you with unnatural, embarrassing colour that you’ll be scrubbing off in the shower. For a perfect glow, you need the best self-tanner on the market. So, chose wisely.
