Favorite Self-Tanners for Spring 2020

We call it a lot of things. Sunless tanning, fake bake, mousse tanning, fake tanning, etc. Whatever you want to call it, I am a fan of faking it as much as possible! As someone who lived in Florida for the better part of a decade, I can personally attest to the skincare scaries that come with being in the sun too much. Now that I’m approaching my 30’s I make it my mission to wear SPF and fake my tan as much as possible. Below you’ll find my favorite self-tanners at the moment!

Glow and get it, ladies.


I broke my favorites down into two categories. products for your face and body.


I don’t use any selfless tanner on my face unless it’s created specifically for that purpose. The tan drops have worked best for me because I can add it to my favorite moisturizers and stick to my normal skincare routine.


For the body, I only use bronzing products if I am not wearing white or going to sleep any time soon. I also love the tanning water for when we have white sheets on our bed or if I’m wearing clothing that can’t get stained. It’s harder to see where you missed any spots, but practice makes perfect, so don’t beat yourself up the first couple of tries. Don’t forget a tanning mit! My favorite mit comes with the Fake Bake tanning water, but if you have to buy one separately, I use this one.


There are a lot of products on the market, and I like trying as many as possible, but these are always under my cabinet and get used more than most! Scroll through below to shop the items directly. Happy “tanning” y’all!
