Why people love it
  • Protect your skin from radiation while getting a beautiful tan
  • Non-comedogenic, free of parabens/PABA, vegan, and gluten-free
  • A highly effective lotion for light bronzing

Known to cause face rashes, and some find the scent overly-strong or too sweet.


Application and Use: This tanning lotion is perfect for those who want to work on a base tan or a light bronze without fully tanning. Thanks to the SPF15 sunscreen in the tanning lotion, you can protect your skin (even very pale skin) from burning while you tan. It's not going to give you a deep tan, but it's ideal for daily use to slowly build up that bronze coloring.

The tanning lotion has an 80-minute lifespan, though you'll only get about 15 to 25 minutes of sunscreen protection. It's great for an hour in the sun, and it'll help you get a bit of color without burning.

The formula is non-greasy and won't leave a residue on your skin. It absorbs easily, provides an even coating, and will help to moisturize your skin. Those with sensitive skin will find that it's gentle and won't cause breakouts (though some have noticed it causes rashes/acne breakouts on the face), and it's suitable for children as well as adults.

Ingredients: The ingredients are 100% vegan, free of parabens and PABA, gluten-free, and approved by the Skin Cancer Foundation. The non-comedogenic formula will help to reduce the risk of back or body acne, and the addition of Vitamin E into the formula ensures the lotion will hydrate and protect your skin. The ingredients are all also hypoallergenic.

Price: At $13 per bottle, this is one of the better-priced tanning lotions on our list. It's not going to give you a deep, dark tan, but it will protect your skin from UV radiation and encourage a light bronzing—perfect for daily use.
