Get your summer tan off to a head start with our pick of the best fake tans for all skin types

Want to achieve a fabulous faux glow this summer? Our pick of the best fake tans, gradual tanners and tanning lotions will give you a gorgeous, natural colour without a ray of sunshine in sight.

Best Fake Tan Lotions

Bondi Sands Self Tanning Lotion Light/Medium 200mL - $17.99



Most gradual tans are lightweight lotions, which is perfect if you’re a beginner. You’ll get a natural glow that develops day by day, and it’s versatile enough to use on both your face and your body. They look just like your average moisturiser, so be sure to wash your hands straight after application, or alternatively you can use a mitt.


Best Fake Tan Foams

Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Foam 270mL - $17.99

If you’re looking for a deeper, long lasting tan, a foam application is super easy to use and gives a gorgeous natural finish. You can find instant/wash off tans, but most of the foams are designed to last. Apply the foam, then leave on for a specific amount of time before showering (always read the directions as each brand/product differs). It’ll last for a few days without the need of any further top-up. The best part about foams — they guarantee a flawless, streak-free finish.


Best Fake Tan Mists

Lightweight, fast-absorbing and super easy to apply, a mist is perfect for a quick fuss-free tanning session. Application takes a matter of minutes, so you can even do a quick spritz in the morning before you head off to work. It also dries down on contact, so you won't need to worry about leaving part of your tan on your furniture. Mists give a subtle, even and natural glow, so if you’re a rookie on the tanning game, then this is a great place to start.

Best Fake Tan Oils

Super hydrating with a luxurious silky finish, tanning oils are perfect for those who suffer with dry skin. They’re also great for areas that tan likes to stick to — knees, knuckles and elbows. This texture penetrates the skin to replenish and rejuvenate, revealing an all-over bronzed glow. Hello summer!

Best Fake Tan Areo Foams

Bondi Sands Aero Aerated Self Tanning Foam Liquid Dark 225mL - $21.99
