BEST EFFORTLESS SELF-TANNER: Hampton Sun Sunless Tanning Gel
Hampton Sun Sunless Tanning Gel provides the most effortless self-tanning experience. Simple application, quick results, great build-able color.
This formula features natural and organic ingredients that improve the skin’s quality. Walnut Oil, Aloe Vera, Vitamins A through E, antioxidants and Chamomile create smooth and moisturized skin with no harsh chemical scent.
The formula also contains Erythrulose (a ketone sugar found in raspberries). Like Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), Erythrulose reacts with the amino acids in the keratin protein on the outer layer of skin. The nontoxic reaction creates a color change in the skin, similar to a cut apple exposed to oxygen, and gives the appearance of an natural-looking tan.
The gel consistency feels cool and soothing on the skin. It melts into the skin seamlessly providing effortless application. The long-lasting formula dries quickly with no lingering scent and fades evenly and discreetly.
The color is light but build-able. If a deeper color is preferred, this unique formula can be applied for a second time immediately after first application. Hampton Sun Sunless Tanning Gel is dermatologically tested and hypo-allergenic, perfect for all skin types.

BEST MOISTURIZING SELF-TANNER: Kerstin Florian Sunless Tan
Kerstin Florian Sunless Tan is an innovative product that provides easy application, natural color, consistency, moisture and a pleasant aroma.
The uber moisturizing formula is enriched with Sweet Almond Oil and Shea Butter to deeply hydrate and smooth the skin for a radiant, streak-free appearance. Ginko Biloba and Echinacea extracts help to condition the skin, fight free radicals and promote healthy cell regeneration.
The active ingredient in most self-tanners is dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which reacts with the outer layer of the skin to create a bronzed tone. Kerstin Florian Sunless Tan uses a natural sunless tanning ingredient derived from a vegetable source. It reacts with amino acids in the top layer of the skin to produce the golden appearance.
Selected by SELF Magazine as the “Best New Self-Tanning Product of the Year,” Kerstin Florian Sunless Tan is thick and creamy and smells subtly like a bouquet of flowers. The initial color is light but builds to a beautiful sun-kissed glow. It feels very lux on the skin and feels and smells like a spa treatment.
