The exciting summer months are fast approaching, which means that right now, there is nothing more thrilling and beautiful than a golden, sun-kissed complexion! Sun beds are bad for you, we know that, and regular spray tans can be quite costly and even slightly inconvenient for some of us. To add to that, there is hardly any sunshine around this time of year, so whatever can we turn to for that perfect summer glow? Well, tanning lotions, of course! Check out these 5 best drugstore tanning lotions that you simply must get your hands on!
1) Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion
It comes in 2 shades; Fair – Medium and Medium – Dark. This is a gradual build self-tanner that moisturises and adds a very natural sun-kissed glow to your skin. The great thing about this tanning lotion is that you can apply it once and watch it gradually deepen to a richer, more noticeable tan over the course of just a few days. Because of its moisturising properties, Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion will not streak or fade unevenly, and the scent is divine! To me, it smells like cookies, and that alone satisfies me enough.
2) Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Gradual Tanning Moisturiser
This is a creamy, nourishing tanning lotion that is packed with pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E. It has quite an overpowering Cocoa butter scent, but the beautiful rich tan it delivers after just one application – plus its skin-softening and moisturising qualities – definitely make it one of the best tanning lotions to buy for this summer!
3) St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Body Lotion
