Our Favorite Self-Tanners That Don’t Smell GrossMay 09, 2022
Best Tanning Drops
Mix these clear, fragrance-free facial drops with your daily moisturizer for a non-streaky, natural-looking tan. It’s easy to build your glow with these — add five to seven drops to a dollop of moisturizer for a subtle tan, and eight to ten drops for a deeper bronze.
Best Tanning Mousse
This vitamin E- and coconut water-infused mousse gives your skin a healthy dose of hydration along with a natural-looking tan. It doesn’t smell plasticky like some self-tanners either; instead, this lightweight foam smells sweet and coconutty.
Best Tanning Mist
Spritz on this tropical-smelling face spray for a buildable tan that develops over four to eight hours. It dries down quickly, layers easily with your makeup and lasts for days at a time.
Best Tanning Serum
If you’re looking for an instant tan, reach for this shimmering golden serum. It’s infused with mica to make your skin glow and delivers an even tan for up to three days. Bonus: It smells fresh and fruity, like a piña colada.
Best Tanning Foam
Available in three shades suitable for fair to dark skin tones, this quick-drying foam develops in just two hours. It contains botanical oils to nourish and soften the skin, and the mango-guava scent reminds us of a tropical fruit smoothie.
