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.

Nicole Miller makes a great self tanner that’s easy to apply and doesn’t look fake. I couldn’t live without it in the winter months!

I USE BARE ESCENTUALS FAUX TAN. I PUT IT ON AT NIGHT BEFORE BED WITH LATEX GLOVES. SHOWER IN THE MORNING AND THE EXTRA JUST WASHES OFF. IT LEAVES A NICE COLOR ON MY SKIN. I LOVE IT!

I love the Dove self tanner.I’ve tried many but this seems to be the best for the price.JH

My favorite self-tanner is Mary Kay’s Sun Essentials Sunless Tanning Lotion. I have very fair skin, and no matter what, my legs never tan, even when the rest of me does. It moisturizes as it tans. I didn’t have any streaking problems, and I can have the degree of the tan change to match my natural tan on the rest of me. It smells nice too!

My favorite self tanner is Biotherm Tinted Self Tanning Gel for Beautiful Legs and Biotherm Self Tanning Water for the face. They don’t smell funny and are really easy to apply. The color is very natural too.

Hawaiian Tropic SPF 25 Oil Free Faces (Sheer Reflections Formula) Bronzing Sunblock… It’s got Vitamins A,C,E and it’s anti-aging, cooling, never streaky… I use it on my face and neck and I am in LOVE!

I love Passport by Biddiscombe International. It sprays on very evenly and lasts quite a bit longer than others I’ve tried. I would definitly recommend it!
