It’s finally that time of year in Minnesota when we can pack away the sweaters and pull out the shorts! After anxiously awaiting the recent temperature rise and sunshine, I realized I am so not prepared to bare my legs just yet… I like to practice safe sun color remedies so while avoiding the tanning booths, I looked to my fellow bloggers for their top faux bronzing products and added one of my own.
Kate Sommerville’s 360° Tanning Towlettes available at Nordstrom
“A few weeks ago I couldn’t stand my whiteness any longer so I started laying on the self-tanner. I have to say that I’m LOVING Kate Sommerville’s 360° Tanning Towlettes. It’s a large towlette that allows you to apply a natural looking glow evenly over the body and it lasts for about a week! This is a great solution, as I’m anti-sun and tanning bed after seeing the damage from sunning myself authentically and artificially from ages 15-25. If you do anything ladies (and gents), start wearing sunscreen or try one of these products!” – Lisa
ST. TROPEZ Self Tan Bronzing Spray available at Sephora
“I love this ST. TROPEZ product because it gives an all-over natural-looking glow and goes on evenly without streaking.” – Sarah
L’Oreal Body Sublime Bronzer available at Sears
“I used to be somewhat of a notorious tanning booth junkie but as of recent years, I’m focusing on being cautious under the sun and taking care of my skin. I find L’Oreal Sublime Bronze tinted lotion to be the perfect, affordable fix. Just a tip: make sure you rub on as evenly as possible and rinse your hands in-between applications.” – Erin
MAC Golden Bronzing Powder available at MAC
“When it comes to tanning – I’m not into tanning booths and I’m not into laying out. I also don’t have the time or desire to mess with self-tanning. I’m a less fuss kind of gal when it comes to beauty products and maintenance. This being said, I use the medium color of the MAC Golden Bronzer powder year-round so that I don’t look washed out. I love how it helps to set my make-up helping me to put my best face forward every morning!” – Bridget
