10 Editor-Approved Wash-Off Tanners That Look Crazy Real

Wash-off tan products haven't had the best reputation. They used to be known as being horribly streaky and made even worse by rain, as the lines running down your body (we're having horrendous flashbacks here) would be the ultimate telltale sign. But products have changed dramatically over the years so that now there is a fabulous range on offer—whether it's for your face or body.

True, there's always the messy obstacle of applying the stuff. But seeing as we're all agreed that it's better to fake a golden tan than bake for one (study the SPF facts if you're not with us), self-tanning is just an easy way to avoid damaging your skin. Which is why we feel incredibly blessed to be au fait with the very best wash-off tanners in town.

Buff on, glow for hours and then wash off—it's that simple! So if you're liking the sound of this low-maintenance tanning option (who wouldn't?), prepare yourself for an induction into the wash-off tan hall of fame.

From the best shimmers and matte finishes to paraben-free options that'll be kind to sensitive skin, we've rounded up all the wash-off tanners we love, including why we love them.
