While there is really no such thing as the absolute top ten sunless tanners because different people have different skin types that require different formulations, there are still a few standout products that seem to carry its weight no matter what the conditions. We have consulted the different lists of top ten sunless tanners we found from magazines and websites and attempted to make the list even shorter so you can make better purchasing decisions. Here are some of the products that we picked from top ten sunless tanners – the best of the best, if we may say so.
• ‘Terracotta' from Guerlain of Paris is still one of the best facial bronzers these days. It has not lost its appeal even after 20 years since it first came out. The Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder retails for about $44, while the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder goes for $33. Quite steep, you may say, but for a product worthy of inclusion in the list of top ten sunless tanners, Guerlain Terracotta is a steal. It gives your skin a luminous, natural tan. It is a moisture-rich and long-lasting powder that even has and oil-controlling properties. They make it in almost every list of top ten sunless tanners because aside from making you look good, they also protect your from free radicals. They have formulations for all kinds of skin tones, or you can also get a neutral formulation which works for every color.
• We also like Chanel Perfecting Bronzer, which works really well on the key areas of the face – the cheeks, the forehead, and the nose. Chanel's formulation is gives you the most natural-looking, sun-kissed look. The Chanel Irreelle Soleil retails for only $26 and comes in a variety of shades.
• Can you guess what facial self tanners were rated highest in almost all lists of top ten sunless tanners? It's Clarins Radiance-Plus Self Tanning Cream-Gel. Users love its how easy it is to apply, how light it feels, how good it smells, and best of all, how long it lasts (two days!). It is great as a makeup base, too, and is appropriate for all skin tones and ages. The 50ml Clarins Radiance-Plus Self Tanning Cream-Gel retails for about $50, but they really last. It comes in an air-tight pump dispenser, making it very easy to use and totally mess free. I personally love this product – it is one of the worthiest products ever to be recognized in the lists top ten sunless tanners.
• Consult any list of top ten sunless tanners and you will surely find Decleor Auto-Bronzant Spray Express Hydratant (the one with SPF 6). We tested it and found that it is one of the most odorless sunless self tanners in the market. It is always one of the top ten sunless tanners because it is all-natural – it uses only organic elements and is completely safe. What's more, it's a hardworking product that you can use on the face and on the body.
