The Highest Ranked Drugstore Self-Tanner Right Now

The sun is finally shining, and the temps are warming up at last. Which means we're making sure to have our good friends SPF and oil-free foundations on deck. But, it's not quite beach weather yet (at least not consistently). If you just can't wait for the sun-kissed summer look, you might want to consider scooping up something that'll help you get a bronzed glow in the meantime. Luckily, Rank & Style has the scoop on which self-tanner is the best bang for your buck. The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid the winner. Fake Bake takes home the title because it's ridiculously popular and has racked up great reviews. On Amazon, user Teresa says: "I have been using self-tanning products for about two years, and truly the best product, EVER. What sets it apart from the rest is that it doesn't have a strong smell, and it applies light-brown so you can see if you've missed any spots. It looks natural, and I absolutely love it!" We're into it because it's fast-drying and stays put all day. So, if you're looking for a little pre-summer glow to get ahead of the game, this is your best bet.  Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid, $12.53, available at Amazon.
