There’s nothing I love more than a healthy sun-tan – especially in these summer months when a golden glow is practically a requirement for those lacy white dresses and carefree off the shoulder tops. Fortunately, when a 10 day trip to Tulum is not on the cards, it’s still possible to achieve a subtle and sophisticated sun-kissed glow, thanks to some new, luxury bronzers and tanners that prove to be user-friendly, orange-less, and best of all, odorless. Here are my top 6 favorites (actually 7 because I discovered the amazing Giorgio Armani bronzer after creating this post), that will get you looking like a bronzed beauty.
James Read Instant Bronzing Mist: I’m a huge fan of using a spray for tanning the body, especially for those hard to reach areas. This one is ultra-light, and fast-acting that leaves the skintone with an immediate bronze glow, and develops into a golden tan over 3-5 hours.
St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil: When achieving a glow for my face, I love using an oil that sinks easily into my skin without feeling greasy. This ultra-hydrating self-tan facial oil does just that, and leaves a subtle golden glow that lasts for up to 7 days.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer: When I’m in a pinch for time, this luxurious powder bronzer saves the day. One sweep gives my skin and instant uplifting glow. I use the medium color for my skin tone.
Michael Kors Hydrating Bronze Gel Creme: Super hydrating for face and body, this lightweight gel smells great and provides a sheer, radiant color.
Vita Liberata Night Moisture Mask: My new obsession! I apply a thin layer of this luxury night mask before bed (3 to 4 times a week), and let it do it’s anti-aging, tanning magic while I sleep. I wake up with a natural-looking glow. And the best part, it’s utterly odorless.
Chantecaille Radiance Gel Bronzer: This ultra-luxurious gel/creamy liquid bronzer gives a subtle luminosity that’s smoothing and long-lasting. It’s very light and gives a natural-looking finish so definitely no streaky lines in sight.
Giorgio Armani Maestro Bronzer: (Not pictured) Not only is this warm liquid bronzer SPF 15, (hurrah!), it melts into my skin leaving a no-makeup feel and a Mediterranean glow. I add a few drops to my foundation, which actually helps to blend in my makeup with more ease.
