11 Brilliant Fake Tans That Look So Real

Amy Lewis


It's official: Fake tans are the best. Not only can you score a holiday-worthy bronze free from all the sun damage (and travel expenses), but now that formulas are more advanced than ever, there are plenty of skin-nourishing benefits to be reaped too.

An authentic-looking sunless tan that leaves skin softer than silk from the comfort of our own bathroom? Yep, that's our kind of deal. Even if you have super-sensitive skin that reacts badly to DHA (aka dihydroxyacetone, the key tanning agent in most fake tans), strong fragrances or harsher ingredients, there are still endless options for bagging a healthy glow.

Of course, the tanning market is full of hits and misses, but we've set about rounding up the créme of the faux glows to help you sidestep streaks, patches, uneven fades and soggy smells. Ready to get yourself beach-bronzed? Keep scrolling for the best fake tans in all the land, with options for sensitive skin too.
