The Best New and Innovative Self-Tanners for Summer
Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Water
This 100 percent vegan line created by a self-tanner to the stars has racked up tons of fans since it launched last summer at Sephora. The products use color-correcting technology for a natural tan—choose from peach (light), green (medium), or violet (dark)—without streaks or stains. We're partial to this "water" that you can mist on skin (including your face) for a Blake Lively–like glow.
