Best Bronzing Gels: Sunless Tan

Best Bronzing Gels

Summer’s finally here, which means there’s no excuse to walk around pale as a ghost. Get a glow going with bronzing gels! I only tan my body, so I used to apply Bonne Bell’s washable gel (on DrugStore.com for $3.95) on my face. You just mix a few drops into your tinted moisturizer or foundation and voilà! A natural looking tan that’ll have you forsaking your bronzing powders. It’s a great Frugal Snob option and can be used on your whole body if you want to avoid the sun altogether. Laura Mercier also has a lightweight, easy to blend gel (at Laura Mercier for $32). To try one specifically formulated for your face, go with The Body Shop’s Fair Trade honey-enriched version (at The Body Shop for $7). These are safer than the sun and easier to correct than tanning lotions and sprays that can dry unevenly. Have you tried bronzing gels?
