As the temperature drops and the sun sets earlier than usual, it’s becoming harder and harder to get our daily dose of Vitamin D and sunkissed tans. We could book an expensive trip to the beach, take off a few days (weeks) of work, and pretend like we have no cares in the world. Or, we could take an approach that’s a little more realistic.
You’ve probably seen tanning drops on TikTok and Pinterest—they’re scientifically formulated to give the appearance of tanner skin without leaving streaks or staining the skin, are easy to apply, fast-drying, and can be done at your leisure. As it turns out, one of television’s most beloved morning talkshow hosts is a fan of these tanning products.
The always-glowing Kelly Ripa took it upon herself one taping to rave about it the Tan-Luxe Illuminating Drops. They’re face and body tanner drops that enhance your complexion and leave your skin looking sun kissed in just 2-4 hours. Some tanner drops can have a chemical smell, but Tan-Luxe Illuminating Drops have a delicate raspberry finish that you’ll absolutely love. Not to mention, they won’t leave you with streaky skin or sheets.

Tan-Luxe Face & Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops
“This product is kind of remarkable,” Ripa told co-host Ryan Seacrest during her show. “It stains nothing… You put it in your moisturizer and then you put it on and your tan develops slowly.”

Tan-Luxe The Water Hydrating Self-Tan Water

Packed with essential vitamins like Vitamin B, C, and E, this self-tanner nourishes the skin while gradually building up a tan that complements your natural complexion, leaving you with a luminous glow on the outside and hydrated skin beneath the surface. This self-tanner has a crystal clear finish and fast-drying formulation, which is a must-have for when you’re running late to that blind date or need a quick touch up at a gathering.
Tan-Luxe Hydra Mousse Self-Tan Mousse Duo
If you’re someone who’s very hands-on and wants a full body glow without making a mess, Tan-Luxe’s Hydra Mousse Self Tan Duo is just for you. The Hydra Mousse dries quickly and not only helps tan your skin, but it also hydrates, firms and improves the appearance of your skin with its key ingredients such as aloe vera, purified water, raspberry seed oil and our favorite Vitamins B, C, and E. This tan duo comes with an application mitt so you’re able to get a full-coverage look without missing any spots (make sure to blend those elbows and ankles!)
The sun may be setting sooner, but with Tan-Luxe’s tan essentials, your sunkissed glow will stay shining through the day (and night)!
