Winter sun doesn't cut it when it comes to tanning so those of us who can't embrace the pale need to opt for a faux glow. When it comes to tanning November to January, it's important to opt for a natural looking colour that won't look out of place set against your scarves and mittens.
Below are our top three picks for a gorgeous festive glow.
He-Shi Gold Foaming Mousse €30.25
This is an amazing tan. A golden mousse that gives a medium bronzed colour with one application. Made from 100% natural DHA, this tan is paraben and alcohol free so will make your skin look, and feel great.
Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan €7.99
A new cult favourite that has taken Ireland and the UK by storm (and soon to be sold in the USA) and it totally lives up to the hype. It claims to give a good colour in just one hour but I prefer to leave it overnight. It fades really well and you can't argue with the price.
This tan by L?'real is another familiar favourite. You'll either love or hate the dry mist but it does give a lovely light glow that doesn't require any rubbing - just spray and go! Perfect for pre-Christmas party prep.
