Three of the best: Self-tanning products

·1-min read

A layer of fake tan is the quickest and safest way to achieve a glow prior to an event or vacation.  

But unlike the self-tanning products of years gone by, when there was always the potential to mess up the application and end up looking streaky and orange, the latest crop of tanning formulas makes achieving that bronzed effect a piece of cake.  

Bondi Sands’ PURE Gradual Foaming Water  

For a tan that will keep people guessing, check out Bondi Sands’ new PURE range.

Housed in 100 per cent recyclable packaging, the clear formula features hydrating ingredients like vitamin E and vitamin C as well as hyaluronic acid.

Blend with an application mitt, and once it’s dry, expect your tan to develop over six hours. Select the light/medium option for a natural-looking sun-kissed glow and dark for a deeper colour.   

Bali Body’s 1 Hour Express   

Unlike conventional tanning products, the latest addition to the popular Bali Body line will have you looking like you’ve just visited a tropical locale in a mere 60 minutes.

Enriched with nourishing oils and vitamin E, the aerated foam is a breeze to apply and doesn’t transfer onto clothing. Too easy!  

Coco & Eve Sunny Honey Bali Bronzing Foam  

For the perfect tan, look no further than Coco & Eve’s brilliant range.

With medium, dark, and ultra-dark options, this self-tan is fast-drying and develops in around two hours.

Plus, it has a fruity mango and guava scent – much nicer than those biscuit-y or traditional fake tan fragrances.
