Summer's Best Sunless Tanners

Each year, sunless tanner products become better formulated and easier to apply (consider application mitts a must). For all products, fine-tuning the misting/spraying/slathering process is key—yes, you need to exfoliate; no, you should not start testing tanners the week of your wedding. But, an authentic-looking tan from a bottle is possible. Here are our editors' top picks for a gorgeous, sunless glow this summer.

Our staff approved of these rookie products' sun-kissed results and the fact that they come packaged with latex gloves for application. "I tried Fair, and it looked completely natural," one editor said. "My boyfriend even complimented me on it!"
