19 Self Tanners With Seriously Glowing Reviews

After over a year of quarantine, you've likely conquered some formerly adventurous beauty dares, including but not limited to: Giving yourself a DIY 'do, becoming your own colorist, and for the bravest among us, waxing your bikini line.
But there's one DIY beauty treatment that we couldn't wholeheartedly recommend enough, it's at-home self-tanning. Unlike past iterations of the stuff, the newest generation of bronzing mousses, sprays, and lotions are nearly impossible to screw up, won't turn you orange, and will even spare your white sheets in the process. (Plus, any derm will tell you that a faux glow is the only safe way to tan.) After one application, you'll be glowing — which can do wonders for your mood, believe us. We've rounded up the top-reviewed options, ahead.
Welcome to Hype Machine, our hit-list of the top-reviewed products across the web — according to a crowd of die-hard shoppers. Call this your 4-star & up only club, with entry granted by our devoted-to-the-goods shop editors.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
