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?

Want your answer to appear in print? To have your comment considered for the next issue of PEOPLE’s StyleWatch, please INCLUDE your first name and last initial, your age and your hometown/state.

I love Shisedo instand self tanner with shimmer. It’s fantastic! It gives me an instant glow and it makes my limbs glow. It doesn’t streak at all and it doesn’t seam to turn orange. The only downside thought it that you cannot put it on our face unless you want your face to glow. The shiseido shimmer tanner is good for the rest of the body, but i recommend something different for the face.

L’Oreal Sublime Bronzer Gel! I love this. U put it on about 2 hrs B 4 bed, let it dry, put on legging & long sleeve shirt….hop N bed (I turn the electric blanket up & the fan on), & by morning I have a great tan. I use 3 days N a row & I look like I’ve been on vacation. Just make sure to put lotion on your hand, elbows, feet & knees before you apply this. After applying wash HANDS w/soap & washcloth! Luck!

I’m very fair & take good care of my skin, so I’ve tried many self tanners. My favorite is Lancome Flash Bronzer Lotion. It goes on evenly, and even with my skin tone, it never, ever looks orange. There’s also a bronzer in it, so you can see the places you’ve missed – leaving less room for streaks!

Kiehl’s is my favorite self tanner. Lancome comes in a close second.

I like Loreal Hip Face Bronzer. For the rest of my body I’ll use Jergens Shimmer Creme. My skin tone is about a shade darker than Jenn Lopez and I would never use self tanner. Cosmetic companies are still missing the mark on creating self tanner for women of color. It looks weird. I love JLo but damn that ish makes her look old. Not a good look for her.

I use the mystic tan at my local tanning salon. It is very good and if you do have a streak, you just use lotion and it will rub in! But if you dry off the right way you do not streak.

I love that face self-tanning cream. Perfect. http://www.collistar.it/ENG/G0101.asp

My favorite self tanner is Jergen’s Natural Glow. It goes on just like a regular lotion, doesn’t have an overpowering scent, dries quickly, and leaves a natural-looking tan on my otherwise fair-skinned body.

Dove Energy Glow (LOVE it!) or any Nuetragena self tanners — and never EVER use revlon tanning products because they will stain your clothes… i tried it one night and woke up the next morning to see an orange outline of my body on my bedsheet!
