Product Smackdown: War Of The Self-Tanners
It's the season for sunshine, margaritas under the stars, and — oh yeah — exposed skin. A lot of it. Here to help us make the dreaded transition from winter layers to summer minis? Self-tanner, which can be a total godsend — that is, if you find the right formula for you. While there are a few fail-safe gems out there, many self-tanning products sadly leave us streaky and stinky enough that we would simply rather stay pale, thankyouverymuch.
Predictably, warmer months mean that a slew of brand-new self-tanners flood the market, each promising to give you richer, more even, and longer-lasting tans than the last. To help you sort through the masses, three of our fairer-skinned staffers put three new formulas to the test, so you don't have to. Yes, we love you that much.
Which ones left us glowing, and which ones made us consider working from home for the day (or the week)? Read on the find out!
