Tanning Season

It's coming. And soon you won't be able to avoid it. Summer. Think sleeveless, strapless, skirts, shorts, bikinis. Is your faux tan arsenal ready? This is NOT the season to embrace the pale. OR to bake in the sun or tanning salon, setting yourself up for wrinkles and skin cancer. Go for the faux, baby!

I'm hoping to do a pre-summer self tanner review blitz, so I've taken stock of all the ones I've already tried and listed them below. If there's already a review (linked items), I'll update it this season. If not, I pledge to write one up before bikini season begins in earnest.

If you have a brand you'd like me to try, that doesn't already appear on this list, leave a comment and let me know which one it is. I'm open to nearly anything (except the Fusion Beauty tanners, as I object to both the price and the product claims).

Happy tanning!
