The Best Tan Brand For Believable Glow

The Best Tan Brand For Believable Glow

Self tan isn’t just for summer – on the contrary, a subtle glow can do wonders for your complexion at this time of year. Enter Bare by Vogue – the brand’s easy-to-use mousses, instant illuminators and vegan-friendly, cruelty-free formulas are an SL-favourite when it comes to achieving natural and even results. Here are some of our favourites from the range, as well as the best ways to use them and why their latest launch is set to be a game-changer…


Self-Tan Foam | £19

Why We Love It: Tanning foams don’t get much better than this. With a pleasant scent, the subtle guide colour develops into a healthy golden tone that looks completely natural. As for the formula, it’s brimming with goji berry, oatmeal, chamomile and grapefruit, all of which work together to boost moisture and elasticity for a smoother appearance. It also dries down fast with zero stickiness – you won’t even know you’ve got it on your skin. Available in three shades, choose your preferred colour and amp it up with an extra layer if you want more intensity. Available here


Face Tanning Mist | £14.50

Why We Love It: A SheerLuxe favourite, this is one of the best facial tanning mists on the market today. Available in light, medium and dark, the pump spray makes it easy to apply – great if you’re worried about overdoing it. Simply spray a thin layer over your face once for a light, gradual glow. If you feel it’s not enough, add an extra misting the following day. Oatmeal and chamomile extracts will lend skin a hydrating boost, while antioxidants work to combat redness caused by pollution or UV rays.

Body Illuminator | £22.50

Why We Love It: The latest addition to the range is this silky Body Illuminator, and it’s already been dubbed ‘game-changing’ by industry insiders. Great at taking the edge off pale, autumnal skin, its glossy, golden formula catches the light beautifully.  Either apply it with your hands or using the brand’s new chunky Body Brush to buff the formula in for a more seamless finish. Meanwhile, vitamins A, C and hyaluronic acid work together to hydrate and boost luminosity."Using the Bare by Vogue Body Illuminator, you can elongate and slim parts of the body by highlighting down the centre while shading the edges. Apply the liquid illuminator down the centre of your limbs, across the collarbones and anywhere else you’d like your skin to catch the light for a luminous glow."Available here

Self-Tan Eraser | £14.50

Why We Love It: Everyone needs a good self-tan eraser, and this is one of the best – and gentlest – we’ve tried. Suitable for sensitive skin, the soft foam removes self-tan without for scrubbing. Use it in the shower, massaging the formula into any stubborn stains, to see colour come away within ten minutes. Oatmeal and chamomile extracts offer some much-needed skin-softening benefits, while fruit extracts like pomegranate and grapefruit gently exfoliate to ensure you’re not left with any unsightly streaks.

Instant Tan | £14.50

Why We Love It: If you need a bit colour quickly, this Instant Tan promises to warm up skin within an hour. With a subtle sheen and rich colour, it’s easy to blend out – as well as cover up any mistakes. The light texture isn’t sticky, either, and added peptides give skin a smoother, plumper appearance. Unlike similar instant tans, this never feels dry, and it won’t leave behind any scaly, flaky patches – instead, expect the kind of softness that’s unheard of with fake tan. Available here
