StyleWatch Editors Want to Know Your Favorite Self-Tanner!

04/20/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Finding a really great self-tanner is a big beauty quest for most women — you know, one that doesn’t streak, turn you an unnatural shade of orange and actually creates a believable sunny glow. We know, for example, that Jennifer Lopez loves her Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel, but we’re still searching for our favorite. This often leads to some scary experimentation — who hasn’t had to wear pants in the broiling heat because of splotchy calves? We want to know what you’ve come up with that works for you. Tell us: What’s your favorite self-tanner and why?

My favorite self-tanner is Comodynes’s towelettes. There are esay to apply and give an instant sweet honey tan!

Garnier Face Tanning Spray is the best. You don’t turn out orange, and there are no splotches as it fades away….

The Mystic Tan, can’t go wrong w/that! No need to apply, worry about streaking, etc. Last 3-5 days!

The best self tanner is Dove Energy Glow! Not only does it give a good tan, but it smells better than a lot of self tanners out there!

I personally like Aveeno’s Continuous Radiance Moisturizing Lotion. It gradually builds a naturally darker skin tone and moisturizes my skin simultaneously.

Because my skin is super pale I use one of the gradual tanning daily moisturisers, this year I’m using Jergens. I apply it every other day on my face, neck and decollete. For body I use L’Oreal’s NutriSummer (purchased in Europe). For big occasions I have splashed out for St Tropez, although it’s more work than the others. The most important thing is to know when to stop!

Physician’s Formula Baked Bronzer. It’s wonderful and can be found at any drugstore. The best self-tanner I’ve ever come across. You apply it with a blush brush, and it looks completely natural and gives you a perfect glow. I DEFINITELY recommend it over any other product. (Believe me, I’ve tried just about everything!)

Evelyn on

I love Loreal sublime lotion. No streaks and a beautiful color.

KR on

I really like Arbonne’s self tanner. It’s not orange at all and it goes on nicely. Of course with any self tanner you do have to be careful when applying. It also has spf in it so that’s a plus too.
