I’ve used this moisturizer for years and I love how it does double-duty. First of all it adds a subtle glow, all while it helps your shave last longer. That’s a win-win in my book!

Spray on self tanners have become quite popular, partially because of their easy application. Just make sure you spray onto skin in even strokes for the most natural color.

I adore Philosophy’s products, so checking out their new self tanner was a must. Infused with an amino acid complex it helps firm and tone skin from the inside out.
TanTowel Classic Self-Tan Towelette For Face & Body
The joy of these towelettes is how easy they allow for application of self tanner. And the bonus is they have a refreshing citrus scent, instead of the usual chemical scent most self tanners have.
