Favorite Tanning Products for January

Shop the post

There are so many good tanning products out there, and then there are the duds! I try not to spend too, too much on products when there are plenty of affordable options out there, but I can’t help but try all of them.

Below are some very affordable options for the self-tanning glam girl. Test them out for yourself and let me know what you think!

Pro Tip: Before trying these products on your entire body, do a swatch test on your wrist for 24 hours. It’s a good way to see how gradual each product is and you’ll know if the color is right for you.

TanologistSelf Tan Water

This tanning water has very little smell and goes on clear. I use shade dark.

It’s one of the more affordable tan waters and it’s even available at a few grocery stores like Target! If you find yourself on a trip and wishing you had a quick tan, you can easily pick this product up while en route. Try the travel size for only $10!

Isle of ParadiseSelf Tanning Drops

These tan drops can pair with your favorite lotion or moisturizer and are great for tossing in your bag on a trip. Using shade medium.

For less than $30, this is a great deal. I have used a few kinds of tanning drops but it’s hard to find high quality drops that don’t break the bank. This is a great middle option and you can use them in your favorite moisturizer or body lotion. I typically only use the drops on my face (with moisturizer) but you could absolutely use them with lotion all over your body. *Be sure to wash your hands really well after!*

St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist

I use this bronzing water on my neck and face for a subtle glow without the harsh orange color.

While you could probably use this on your entire body, I don’t think it would be the most cost effective option. I’d recommend it for those in-between days when you don’t want a super bronze face, but need a bit of color.
