Self tanners are HUGE this summer and I’m here to tell you I’m IN!
Okay so remember how hard it used to be to try and get a tan?!? I would have to lay in the sun alllll summer long just to get a little something and by that time Summer was ending😭😂 or laying in the tanning bed 5 days a week to get a base and then when I actually go lay in the sun just get burnt to a crisp! Yeah you are not alone. Well nowwww thanks to self tanners it’s so much quicker 😍🙌🏼 thank you self tan Gods! Not to mention the products hydrate your skin and just give you that glowing bronze you only dreamed of getting from the actual sun. I am so thankful for these products and I wanted to share them with you!
My very first product I tried was St Tropez. It’s a very popular brand so I’m sure you have heard of it. My experience was so great at first. It was very easy to apply. It comes out as a foam and didn’t streak at all. You can get this at Ulta, Sephora, Amazon, and their official website. It runs about $50. They have a bunch of different options but I went with the classic and was not disappointed. However, I kept using this product and noticed my skin was getting a rash 😭 I’m not saying that this stuff is bad for your skin. Everything is not for everyone and my skin just wasn’t reacting well after about 5 uses. It wasn’t hydrating my skin but the tan was a very pretty color and did not blotch or streak. However because this one didn’t work for me so well after a few weeks that brings me to my next (favorite) product I’ve been using.
This is my holy grail. It does not give me as much color as st tropez did but it’s soooo hydrating and my skin is just so soft after using. This is a spray and I did prefer the foam over the spray but it’s still great. This product is so easy to apply. I just spray a few sprays on a tanning mitt and rub it on my skin in circular motions. Since I’ve been using this product for a good while now I’ve noticed that a little goes a long way and it’s definitely a layering tan. What I mean by that is after your first use yes you will notice a difference but you won’t be like shocked. It will look like a natural tan. If you use more say the next day it just adds to what you already have on your skin and makes you darker. Another plus is this tan stays for days! I feel like when I put this on it’s on for that entire week or more. I haven’t used it on my face yet because I worry about breaking out but so far my skin has yet to react negatively. You can purchase this at Ulta, Walmart, Amazon, and their official website. It runs about $35 or less. Super affordable! I am wearing it in this photoshoot.
So those are my two reviews so far. I have yet to fully involve myself in self tanners but I’m excited to try some new ones out soon that I have been hearing about. Also let me know which self tanning products you will be using over the Summer 👇🏼🙆🏼♀️
Have a fabulous weekend!! Here’s the links to all products and my mitt!
