I am pale. Like really pale. My friends lovingly call me Casper. This makes it extra hard to find sunless tanners that don’t look ridiculously fake on me. Luckily I have found a few that take me from Ghostlike to Glowing.
- Tarte Brazilliance Plus+ – This is my go to sunless tanner. It is super easy to apply and comes with a mitt that leaves you streak free and keeps your hands from turning brown. It also has a tint to it, so you can see if you have missed a spot. It does not leave you super dark, so if that’s what you are looking for, this is not the one for you. It does, however, give you a lovely natural-looking glowy tan.
- Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Water – Yes you read that right – water. This was a recent purchase of mine and so far I am really liking it. Comes in light, medium, and dark (I obviously got the light) and each one has its own color-correcting properties.
- Jergen’s Natural Glow – Buildable so you can gradually build up a tan. This daily body moisturizer gives a natural-looking glow in a week or less. Easy, hassle-free application, and sun-kissed, streak-free results. Available in Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan.
- Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs – Technically this isn’t a sunless tanner, but I love using this for days when I look down and realize how white my legs are and I need a last minute tan. I also use this for blending in spots that I might have missed when applying my other tanners.
