Bronzing tanning lotions are all different, and each has its own unique blends of vitamins, bronzing agents, fragrances, and sun protection. I will outline several of the leading bronzers and discuss what makes each one different. First, there are a few criteria that you should consider when picking a tanning lotion.
– Smell – Pick a lotion that you like the smell of.
– Consistency – Some lotions come out of the bottle thick like syrup. This makes them hard to spread on your skin and ultimately cause your tan to look bad. Find the right consistency, not too thick and not too thin.
Here are a few great tanning lotions that produce a nice dark tan:
Ultra Advanced 14 Bronzing Blend – 14 specially designed blends to give you dark skin
Fade Defying TM Formula – Allows the color to stay longer and penetrate deeper into your skin
SunStay Technology Formula – Allows the UV light to penetrate deeper into your skin
Exotic Fruits and Fig Fragrance – Gives the lotion it’s distinct smell (I think it smells like pineapple)
Cypher California Tan Bronzer Step 2 Maximizer Indoor Tanning Lotion – California Tan
Moisturizes Skin – This allows for the skin to tan easier (dry skin does not tan)
The bronzers produce a quick and long lasting tan only a few hours after tanning – Good for people who want to see instant results from their tanning
Silicone formula leaves skin feeling silky smooth – Keeps your skin moist after tanning
Zesty Lime Verbena Fragrance – I enjoy the lime scent and it’s not overpowering
Black 20X Bronzer – Designer Skin
Mega Magical Silicone Emulsion – Leaves skin smooth and locks in moisture
20X Bronzing Body Silk – 20 unique blends used to darken your skin
Suitable for all skin types as this lotion does not contain any tingle – check out my review to learn more about tingle tanning lotions
Refreshing citrus scent – Aromatherapy can be very relaxing.
A couple of things to remember when using tanning lotions. Try to apply your tanning lotion at least 15 minutes before going to the tanning salon to allow the lotion enough time to absorb into your skin. The moisturizers in the lotion will help prevent premature wrinkling and damage to your skin. Also, try to avoid showering for an hour after tanning so the moisturizer can continue to protect your skin after tanning. Tanning lotion will also wash off easily in the shower if you do not wait.
