Farewell, snow white skin…
Everyone wants a bronzed summer glow, but there’s no point in roasting your skin when fake tan is just as good. We’ve tried and tested some of the best (and worst) fake tans around so you don’t have to; here’s our pick of the pack. You’re welcome.
Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam (Dark), $19.99
The best tan for: colour
Bondi Sands has created the perfect mousse formula which applies evening onto the skin, and takes just seconds to dry. There are two shades (medium and dark), although one application is best if you want a natural-looking tan. Use a self-tan applicator mitt to buff the product well into the skin, and leave your body looking tanned and streak-free.
ModelCo Tan Mousse Light-Medium Formula, $20
The best tan for: smell
If you want to create a soft, subtle tan before a night out, ModelCo’s brand new and improved formula is a life-saver. The light formula delivers a natural-looking tan (even for pale girls) which develops in 4-6 hours getting darker and darker. But don’t worry – the mousse is equipped with a colour guard which shows you exactly where the colour is going.
Fake Bake Tanning Butter For Dry Skin, $29
The best tan for: dry skin types
Finally, a fake tan for dry skin which won’t cling to knees and elbows. Fake Bake has created an innovative formula which is paraben-free, moisturising, and creates a lovely bronze glow for the summer. Buff it well into freshly exfoliated skin for a flawless, streak-free tan!
Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter Lovely Legs Spray, $19.95
The best tan for: flawless legs
Keep your legs looking flawless this summer with Cocoa Brown’s Lovely Legs Spray. The sweet-smelling formula (it’s just like chocolate, yum!), spreads evenly and covers imperfections for a special night out. The formula washes off with soap and water, which is ideal if your legs need some colour before a big event.
GlowByBeca Chocolate Tanning Mousse, $40
The best tan for: natural formula
If you’re searching for a fake tan without any of those nasty additives, GlowByBeca definitely ticks all the right boxes. The salon quality tan is quick and easy to apply, plus it is 100 per cent eco-certified natural DHA made from a chocolate based solution.
