Pros: Intensely moisturising, not sticky, natural-looking, soothing, skin-loving ingredients, refreshing smell, subtle tan, natural ingredients
If you're looking for a natural-looking fake tan, this is the one. We applied ours before bed and woke up with a subtle sun-kissed complexion.
In our experience, gradual tans that apply like a moisturiser are very hit-and-miss. Often, they'll give you a streaky tan or the results will be so subtle that you can barely notice any difference. However, this tan was just intense enough to have an impact but still look natural and there were no streaks or white patches in sight. We used a mitt to be extra safe, and a tanning brush around the knees, feet and elbows. We'd advise reapplying daily to prevent fading and deepen the tan.
Out of all the tans on the list, this one contains the most skin-loving ingredients. For example, the added Vitamin A and Papain act as natural exfoliants and will remove dead skin cells to leave skin soft, and smooth, and will make your tan as even as possible. It also contains organic shea butter to deeply nourish skin, and aloe vera to soothe redness and irritation.
Evolve Beauty is also a brand that is committed to making natural and sustainable products that are still affordable. So, this tan is organic, vegan and cruelty-free ingredients and comes in a semi-recyclable bottle.
