Best Overall: Skinny Tan Wonder Serum
- Pros: Long-lasting, natural, even results
- Cons: Bottle may leak after a number of uses
The best vegan tan is Skinny Tan Wonder Serum, it is easy to apply and needs to be washed off after 6-8 hours. After washing off gives a natural glow.
The formula is vegan, cruelty-free and is kind to skin with natural ingredients. This serum is easily absorbed and doesn’t transfer onto bedding or clothes.
This tanning serum smells great and works with all skin types. Take care when applying as the consistency is quite runny so don’t try to apply too much at one time. The other thing to be aware of is the bottle, it can be frustrating to use as it may leak after a number of uses.
When looking at Skinny Tan products, the serum or gradual tanner is best as the mousse is often streaky.
Best In A Hurry: Skinny Tan Express Tan
- Pros: Natural look, easy to apply, good value, fast results
- Cons: Needs to be applied carefully
Skinny Tan Wonder Serum is the best instant vegan tan, it is easy to apply and produces a natural look without streaks. A small amount goes a long way and it leaves your skin feeling very soft. The skin nourishing formula of anti-aging and anti-oxidant Q10 coenzyme, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E help with that!
One of the other things we like about this serum is the coconut smell. This express serum needs to be washed off between 1-3 hours after applying depending on the shade you are going for.
Best Gradual Tan: Skinny Tan Gradual Tan Moisturiser
- Pros: Natural, nourishing, coconut scent
- Cons: Takes longer to work than other products
If you’d like to build up your tan gradually, this moisturiser is the way to go. It helps to give you a tan with each application while also moisturising and nourishing the skin.
Unlike many fake tan products, this moisturiser smells fantastic with a coconut and vanilla scent. The other benefit of this moisturiser is that it is fast-absorbing and there is no colour transfer onto clothes or bed sheets so you don’t need to wait for it to dry before getting on with your day.
Runner Up: Isle of Paradise Fake Tan Drops
- Pros: Easy to apply, use with moisturiser, natural glow
- Cons: Strong smell
If you like the idea of a tanning moisturiser but you already have a moisturiser you love to use, these self-tanning drops are for you. You simply add between 3-12 drops of the product to your favourite moisturiser, mix it together and apply it. It takes 4-6 hours for the tan to develop.
These tanning drops need to be used as part of a daily routine otherwise the results will only last a few days.
Runner Up: Bondi Sands Gradual Tanning Milk
- Pros: Easy to use, absorbs quickly, not sticky or streaky
- Cons: Strong smell
The Bondi Sands Tanning Milk can be used as a daily or weekly moisturiser to gradually build up a natural glow. The results can be seen after the first application and as the tanning milk is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E it leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated.
While many users like the smell of this tanning milk, some people do find it a bit strong and it does have the slight biscuit smell of fake tan.
