Get Glow­ing In An In­stant

Don’t have time to fake tan? We’ve tried out the best in­stant tans so you can bronze on the go


1 Sally Hansen Air­brush Legs, £9.99 HHHH

Emma: I found this easy to use and great for a su­per-speedy glow. It dries in­stantly and cre­ates a nice, light cov­er­age. the only down­side is that when you look up close, you can tell that there’s a layer sit­ting on the skin. Look’s Gabrielle: this is make-up for your legs. If you want not only a false tan but cov­er­age too, this will blur out veins, bruises and other im­per­fec­tions in a flash. and when you’re done it washes off with soap and wa­ter.

2 Co­coa Brown In­stant Tan Bronz­ing Gel Matte, £6.99 HHHH

Emma: I was wary about this be­cause of its sticky tex­ture, but it blends in re­ally eas­ily. I felt like I’d had a spray tan in just five min­utes and it didn’t run in the rain – win­ning! Look’s Gabrielle: this trea­cleesque gel is pretty scary at first, but once ap­plied it trans­forms into a sub­tle bronzed tan. It’s to­tally matte, so you don’t have to worry about step­ping out of the house look­ing like you’ve bathed in high­lighter.

3 Rimmel Sun Shim­mer In­stant Tan Matte, £6.99 HHHHH

Emma: I love the smell of this – but you have to be quick when ap­ply­ing be­cause it dries al­most in­stantly. But once the colour is on, it’s not go­ing any­where. no rain, sweat or tears will make this one budge, mak­ing it per­fect for a night out. Look’s Gabrielle: avail­able in three dif­fer­ent shades and a matte or shim­mer fin­ish, this is your ul­ti­mate cus­tom in­stant tan. It dries su­per-quick, mean­ing it won’t trans­fer onto your clothes. Fab!

4 Vita Lib­er­ata Body Blur In­stant HD Skin, £30 HHH

Emma: this lies some­where be­tween a mousse and a gel, and gives an in­stant deep colour. I didn’t ac­tu­ally re­alise the amount of shim­mer in it un­til I walked out­side into the sun and was glow­ing – in a good way, obvs. Look’s Gabrielle: an­other one that com­bines in­stant tan with ac­tual cov­er­age, this gives your skin a gor­geous glowy fin­ish and deep tan. how­ever, the mousse gel tex­ture ru­ined my fake tan mitt!
