Far be it from me to recommend or even like a self tanner but Sephora Gradual Self-Tanning Face Water is probably the easiest self tanner I’ve tried.
This is actually a tanning water that gives skin a very subtle touch of the sun. I’ve used it for several weeks and hav eto say I’m kinda impressed.
Take a peek!
Sephora Gradual Self-Tanning Face Water is just that, a water. This comes in a 4.22 oz bottle and is basically a clear liquid tanner that smells like the tropics (I need a perfume that smells like! It smells like tanning oil and the beach and a tropical island and…and..all good things Summer)!
You’ll want to exfoliate your face prior to using it! After that all is fair in love and war. I simply applied it in the evening prior to going to bed and before any of my other skincare. I kept my skin regime really like the days I used it so nothing too elaborate on those nights aside from a bit of serum and moisturizer. It’s basically just like a toner so I just saturated a cotton pad with it and swiped it in a downward motion on my face and neck. It isn’t sticky and it absorbs easily into my skin. It’s very refreshing as well. Keep in mind this is completely clear on application so there isn’t tint here. On my first day after application I didn’t see a change nor did I see a change on the second or the third day or even the fourth. Finally on the 7th day I noticed that my skin was a bit darker and by the time I headed into week two I definitely noticed that my skin had gone up a shade. You can the subtle change in my photos below!

It’s actually a nice effect because it isn’t overwhelming tan or is it too orange or brown. It looks natural to me. Heck it looks better than a real tan as typically I tan easily and it would be considerably browner compared to the finish the Sephora Gradual Self-Tanning Face Water gives me.
If you’re anything like me and you’re kinda scared of the sun this is a nice way to get a touch of it without being overwhelmed!
It’s available now at Sephora and Sephora.com.
