Posted on

1. A bronzing kit that dries faster than sunburns fade.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is my new absolute favorite self-tanner of all time! It blends out perfectly and dries very fast. This one takes only minutes and you can get dressed and be on your way. The color is great, very natural-looking, and not orange at all." —HME1975

Price: $13.13

2. Some pads with vitamin D so you can get your sun on without your skin peeling off.

Promising Review: "The BEST self-tanner I've ever tried! It's a natural-looking, bronzey-brownish tan than you can build like a real tan. No orange color at all! The skin care ingredients also give the skin a glow or sheen, does not leave it dry-looking like other tan towelette products. And no brown residue to stain your clothes or sheets like lotion tanners." —Opinions from Miami

Price: $45 for eight pads

3. Some tanning lotion with shea butter and coconut oil for a rich, natural glow.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I have been using tanning lotions for 15 years now. This has been the best! It is instant and as long as you follow the directions, you will have a flawless tan. After two applications (once a day) I achieved a perfect rich color. And it is still nice and rich two days later." —Eileen Smith

Price: $18.99

4. A daily moisturizer for a gradually deepened and year-round tan.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This has been my favorite for years! Sadly, it's so hard to find here in Hawaii. It really helps keep a faux tan glow lasting. It's moisturizing and soaks into skin fast, even in our humid weather. Not at all greasy or slippery." —ricky

Price: $9.47

5. A pack of sprays that say, "I spent all day on the beach" without having to pick sand out of your butt.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I have used this product for several years and have never needed to try any other tanner. It is a gradual tan, which is much safer for beginner tanners. It also means you control how tan you want to be." —StranP

Price: $29.10 for a pack of three

6. An organic, vegan lotion if you hate chemicals even more than tanning beds.

amazon.com

Promising Reviews: "I have sensitive acne-prone skin on my face and it did not break me out." —Chanel Ross

"I've tried TONS of self-tanners in the past, and this is by far my favorite! Easy to apply, no streaks, and a natural golden brown tan. I apply it overnight, and wake up looking like I just spent a day at the beach!" —Katie

Price: $16.99

7. A self-tanner plus exfoliator because streaking is no joke.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "PERFECT! I had Melanoma so I am not supposed to go in the sun, so unless I get a fake tan I am pasty white. It's not sticky at all, it feels just like regular lotion! It's not colored, so it doesn't stain my clothes. I put it on in the morning, and can go to work with it on fine!" —Lake Murdoch

Price: $19.90

8. An easy-to-use spray as an approachable beginner's intro.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I live in Texas, so I have a perpetual tan. I wanted to give it a little boost for the weekend and was shocked. Immediately after application, I was already glowing. I'm hooked!" —L. West

Price: $14.51

9. A hydrating blend of natural ingredients so you can moisturize at the same time for super-soft and bronzed skin.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Best self-tanner that I have ever used!! Self-correcting coverage, so no streaks or strange patches!! Great color, very natural! A+++" —Ashland0222

Price: $29.99

10. Some handy towelettes for a quick transformation from ghostly to glowing.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "My favorite self-tanner! And I've tried a bunch! I'm a redhead — pale, but no freckles. Not too dark, not orange, just subtle bronze. I use this stuff year-round!" —StickySteph

Price: $8.54

11. A bronzing cream if your mornings demand a one-step routine.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I have VERY sensitive skin. I'm also very fair skinned, so it's nice to have a product that I can use in the summer to look tan. Does not turn you orange either, just a very 'healthy' glow. Smells good, like oranges." —James Douglas

Price: $29.90

12. A moisturizing mousse in darker shades if you're not messing around about looking tan this summer.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "WOW. Where has this been my whole life?! I've been using sunless lotion for a while, and while I liked the results, I felt they look a very long time to achieve my desired color. This goes on and tans pretty instantly and the color is nice (not orange). It also builds up nicely over a few days." —SG

Price: $11.87

13. A daily lotion to slap on after your shower. Easy peasy.

Promising Review: "I use this lotion almost every day after I shower. People think I spend hours and hours in the tanning bed or out in the sun, but in reality I just use Jergens!" —Claudia

Price: $9.74

14. Some mousse with argan and coconut oil so you can easily ~gloss over~ without streaking.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Amazing color. So natural and smooth to apply. Doesn't stain anything afterward and dries really quick without any smells!" —Amazon Customer

15. A fast self-tanner in case you need a literal overnight transformation.

feelunique.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I used to pay an arm and a leg to spray tan. I decided to take a risk and go the self-tanner route. St. Moriz not only lasts much longer, but it doesn't come off in patches the way spray tans do! It really does fade evenly. I only have to apply once a week." —K Dizz

Price: $9.99

16. An everyday moisturizer for a gradual tan if you're afraid of turning into an Oompa-Loompa overnight.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Best tanning product I have ever bought. It doesn't smell bad, and goes on perfectly. It looks like I sat out in the sun all weekend. I'm naturally a VERY pale person, and this doesn't make me look orange." —Christy Baker

Price: $30

17. A body cream that's easy to spread evenly if you've ever stepped into the light and realized you look like a tiger.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love this lotion. I'm very pale and it's hard for me to get a beautiful and natural-looking tan. I don't like using most tanning products because my skin looks orange, not natural. But this lotion is very nice. If you use it every day your skin will start looking tan, glowing, and hydrated. When it comes off, it's not so noticeable as with a lot of other products. And it smells really nice." —Sveta

Price: $4.97

18. A bronzing mousse with a steadfast reputation for making even the palest of pale look naturally radiant.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "My skin tone falls somewhere between Snow White and translucent. I can go outside in the sun for 15 minutes and get a burn. I've even been told I glow in the dark. With that said, St. Tropez is the first self-tanner that ever looked like a REAL natural tan on me. In the last two years using this product, I have never had an issue with streaking, and I am not sure how you can." —Tea

Price: $42

19. A pack of tanning towels if you just know this could end with neon orange hands.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I've never once had any kind of blotching, streaking, or that obvious orange color that self-tanners often have. The towelettes are so easy to apply and you really can't mess the application up." —Dr. Holly

Price: $24 for a set of 10

20. A coconut-scented sunless lotion so you feel like you're under some palm trees, when you're really just sitting on your couch.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I won't use anything else. This makes my fair skin beautiful and naturally golden. Does not rub off on clothes or sheets." —TS

Price: $27.95

21. An express tan mousse because sometimes you have an event that you need to look good for RIGHT NOW.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Had never used self-tanner like this before I headed off to the Virgin Islands in March. I was pasty white, and with this I had a deep, natural-looking tan. This lasted a while into my trip. Long enough to get a regular tan. I felt so so much more confident in my swimsuit with this on." —mary

Price: $44
