5 Solid Affordable Self-Tanners For Winter Time

With the end of summer, our tans will begin fading in a month or so as we start to head indoors and hibernate from the chilly weather. Keeping a tan in the winter and fall is a pain– how do you avoid the harsh rays of a tanning bed without looking ghostly? At Shopkick, we believe in matching your outer glow to your inner beauty, which is why we’ve compiled our favorite self-tanners at every price point. Ready to tan?

1. Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun 

Rated 4.5 stars, the Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun Mousse is a safe pick for those craving a deeper tone glow. The product will give you the fruity scent of a beach bronze goddess, and come on, who doesn’t want that? This self-tanner dries in only 60 seconds, faster than you can say the title “Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun” itself!
Price: $10.44

2. St. Tropez ​​Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse

Another excellent choice, this St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse sits at a higher price, but is well worth the splurge. This tanner is slightly more pigmented and boasts high ratings for its availability to hide varicose veins, mask wrinkles, and block odors from the skin.
Price: $42.00

3. SKBC Self Tan Mousse 

The SKBC Self-Tanning Mousse is formulated with vitamin C, giving it ultimate anti-aging power and sun protection. So, not only are you going to be glowing like it’s the middle of summer, you’ll be protected too! With other benefits like rosehip and sunflower seed oil, you’ll be nourishing your skin while smelling like a fresh summer’s day.
Price: $29.95

4. Neutrogena Build-A-Tan 

If you are looking to build your tan gradually, Neutrogena’s Build-A-Tan is the product for you! This product doubles as a daily moisturizer, so you replenish your skin while giving it a sun-kissed look. Get the exact look you would get from tanning outdoors for hours just by moisturizing!

5. Sephora Tinted Self Tanning Body Mist 

Want a glow without any goo? Try Sephora’s Tinted Self-Tanning Body Mist, a luxurious yet affordable mist that quickly dries without leaving any stickiness. And with their color guard spray, you’ll be able to see exactly where you’ve already applied. Just make sure not to get it in your eye!

We hope you find your glow, whatever that means to you! Whatever you decide, rock it with confidence, no matter the time of year.
