New innovations, formulas and techniques reign the realm of self-tanners, constantly improving the effects of achieving the utmost natural, sun-kissed glow or the deepest “fresh-off-Ibiza” tan. Fake tanners have been gaining more attention and encouragement of use over the recent years thanks to advanced technology, providing equally stunning results as compared to a real tan, minus the damaging effects of the sun’s dangerous rays.
St. Tropez is one of the cult brands that have reinvented the way people perceive self-tanning, with the astonishing Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion debuting in 2015. The eponymous tanning label has now taken another step towards a new direction by inventing the first ever self-tanning sheet mask that’s launching this month, just in time for summer ´17.
Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion
A clever, sweet almond oil infused lotion that is to be used in the shower. Carefully apply all over the body, leave it on for just 3 minutes before rinse. Then wait for 8 hours to see full results. Reapply with every shower for a deeper glow.

The Face And Body Gradual Tan
Basking in the sun’s delightful glimmer is a sheer luxury. And so should the act of self-tanning be. La Mer Face & Body Gradual Tan absorbs quickly, treating skin to a desirable, natural tan minus the streaks if applied carefully on exfoliated and moisturized skin.

Brazilliance PLUS+ Self Tanner
An enticing Brazilian tan is within reach thanks to Tarte’s upgraded version of the original Brazilliance tanner. The improved PLUS+ Self Tanner is packed with aloe, vitamin E, citric acid and squalane to smoothen skin while giving it an approved golden Goddess glow.

Self Tan Express Bronzing Face Sheet Mask

Vita Liberata is another cult tanning brand among beauty aficionados, blessing skin with a photo ready finish, sun-kissed tint with promises to cover imperfections and minimize blemishes. The new Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish is available in light, medium and dark tones.
