Hey, y’all! I’ve been doing some research on the darkest self tanner over the last few months and I wanted to share my results! I’m so picky about them because I want to do as little as possible and still have the best results. Lol that might be unreasonable, but my standards are high. I tried out these three brands to see if they held up to my standards!
The Darkest Self Tanner
1.Loving Tan 2 HR Express Tanner in Dark
This is my all time favorite. My current bottle is almost empty, and I need more ASAP. I love this one because it has never streaked on me and it’s a great olive color. This one is great if you have a more olive undertone. If you have a more pale undertone the color is probably not going to be the best for you. You’ll be better off with the next one on this list! Although this one is a 2HR express, I usually exfoliate in the shower and apply before going to bed and leave it on overnight. It lasts for about 5 days and it’s the most natural self tanner I’ve ever used!
2. Tanologist Express Tan in Dark
Y’all, this one is DARK. I was so impressed by the color the next day after application plus it lasted about 5 days which was awesome. Downsides on this one were it was a little splotchy on my hands and feet (I’m lazy because I’m used to how easy the Loving Tan is to apply and wasn’t super careful), it also was sticky after applied and smells like alcohol. None of those were huge turn offs for me, and I’ll probably use the rest of the bottle, but they are things to consider.
3. B.Tan Forever + Ever in Dark
Ok, this one I wasn’t super impressed with this one. It says it lasts 11 days, but the fine print states for it to last that long you have to reapply every 2 to 3 days, so that was immediately a turn off for me. Secondly, even after exfoliation, it darkened my scars and joints significantly which the other two did not. Lastly, it was not very dark. I think this would be a great starter tan color, but not for someone looking to be super tan. Another plus is that it has no scent! Which was a pleasant surprise and unusual for self tanners.
