Just one run-in with a traditional self-tanner and you'll see: it's not easy being orange. Streaks and odd tints can make a bottled tan look even worse than pasty January-legs. The solution? Benefit Cosmetics self-tanners and bronzers - putting the "fake" back in "fake-n-bake."
From left to right: Jiffy Tan, Glamazon, Hoola, and Nina's Nugget.
Looking for the sleekest, smoothest tan out there? Jiffy Tan tinted lotion ($24 U.S.) is formulated to go on even and stay put when applied. And the best part is, you won't have to wait hours to see that perfect bronze glow - Jiffy promises instant gratification! (They don't call it "tan-fastic" for nothing.)
If the bottle still scares you, blend watery Glamazon bronzer ($26 U.S.) on your face like blush for that freshly basked look. And, as with Aruba, there's only one rule: the more applications, the richer the look.
As if that's not enough, Benefit offers two more products to make you look vitamin D-licious: Hoola bronzer ($26 U.S.), a light powder for an all-over bronze finish, and Nina's Nugget ($14 U.S.), golden shadow that's always creamy, never sticky.
Though Benefit may cost slightly more than a drugstore brand, it's worth it. Not only do these products work, they'll make you feel as good as you look. Trust me, you'll be glowing long after everyone else starts peeling.
