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.

When our editor-in-chief walked into the office wearing this, we all were astonished by the vacation-worthy glow she'd developed overnight. With warm, golden-toned results, this is the way to go if you'll be stuck in an office instead of in the Caribbean during the weeks before your wedding.
