Advice for a good sunless tanner?

Hi all! I'm hoping for some advice...

I'm going to my Aunt's birthday party in So Cal on Saturday and I was hoping to look a little tanner than I do now

Hopefully you guys know of something that isn't too expensive that I can pick up at a local store (CVS, Rite Aid, Pure Beauty, Target, Sally Beauty, maybe Walmart)

I don't have much experience with sunless tanners, all I know is that I don't want to turn out orange! So maybe a gradual tanner?

IDK! Thats why I'm asking, hopefully y'all can offer me some advice

TIA!

For all the self tanners...this one's for you.


I'm still a huge fan of this stuff. Won't use anything else. It NEVER looks orange. You can get it off ebay or their website but it obviously wouldn't be there by Saturday. I don't like any drug store brands at all so I'm not much help in that department!

I completely agree with Erika, the React tanner liquid is the only actual tanner (think dark like a spray tan) that looks right on my fair, freckly skin.

The only other thing I have to contribute is this: Malibu Tan: Golden Glow Skin Firming Bronzing Moisturizer Hemp Body Lotion, 18 fl oz Customer Ratings & Reviews - Top & Best Rated Products - Walmart

I can't recommend it enough, it is by far my favorite beauty product of all time lol! I only have been able to find it at select Walmart stores unfortunately. It is super cheap and really nice lotion, plus it smells nice and doesn't have that disgusting tanner smell. I LOVE it and wear it as my daily lotion! It won't give you a dark fake tan or anything, but just a subtle glow that builds over time. Plus you can put it on quick like normal lotion and absolutely can't mess it up which is important to me haha!

Thank you both for your advice!

Even if I end up going to this party as my white-y self I truly appreciate the info.
I'm definitely going to try to do more sunless tanning this summer so I don't damage my skin regular tanning.

I'm at walmart, like all the time so I'll probably check for the Malibu Tan, what section would I find it in? By the regular lotions?

Thanks again!

Thanks! I have always used the surgical gloves method, so I am going to try this! I cannot go in the sun. When I do, I turn all shades of tomato, so I am going to try this!

I think you'll like it. The React didn't look good with my skin but this one is perfect.

The Malibu Tan stuff is in with the normal skin lotions at my Walmart. There is also a non-tanning hemp lotion by the same brand that is nice as well. However the brand really annoyingly isn't carried at all stores.

I am a HUGE fan of L'Oreal Sublime Bronze. I'm pretty fair, too. It's only $8 or $9 at Target or wherever.

Buy L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion & More | drugstore.com

/\ That's what I used to use, and I love how it sprayed. But when I am ready to start my usual tanning routine - and believe me, it's a routine - I am going to try Erica's stuff. I haven't self-tanned in a couple of years, and I am ready to embrace the bronze again.

I checked before I went and walmart.com said the walmart 10 miles from me had a limited supply but I wasn't sure how accurate this was or if they would be in stock, turns out they were!
So I picked up the smaller bottle that doesn't have the pump top to try it out
I haven't tried it yet though
I'll probably write about the results here once I do
