The vast world of self-tanning products can be just a tad overwhelming. Between lotions, sprays, mousses, and foams, how are we supposed to figure out which products can actually help us look our best?
Of course, that’s partially our job as beauty editors to bring you the best of the best—but in addition to the friendly recommendations we give you, we still turn to online communities like Reddit and Amazon for stellar new finds. And when hundreds upon hundreds of Amazon reviewers give a product a detailed, satisfied, and glowing review, we figure it has to be a great product. (with some personal research of our own, of course).
With this in mind, we tracked down the best self-tanner on the market that boasts more than 140 4.5-star reviews on Amazon. Ready to see what it is?

It’s the Healthiest Tan
It’s not just about going a shade darker, but also about treating your skin with only the best. Vita Liberata’s Phenomenal Self-Tanning Mousse is a fast and easy-to-apply, odorless self-tanner that gives a natural-looking, streak-free tan. It also contains natural and organic extracts and zero toxins so you can rest assured you’re getting the healthiest tan. So when we apply a layer of the mousse, we’re not only glowing on the outside, we’re also doing our skin a favor.
My favorite part about it is that it lasts up to four times longer than regular tans! Yep, it’s made with pHenO2 Technology, so you can go 2-3 weeks without worrying about fading. It may have taken you all summer to get your glow on, but with just a pump of this mousse, and you can prolong your tan through the holiday. Bonus: If you’re not a fan of leaving tan on to develop, you should try their Ten Minute Tan, a rapid performance tanning lotion that allows you to shower just ten minutes after application.
Number of 4-5 star reviews on AMAZON: 140
“I LOVE this tanner. I have used MANY different tanners and have gotten professional $55 tans. I believe there are multiple factors to consider when looking for a great tanner. I want to note that I am VERY fair skinned.”
“Fades EVENLY. It really does fade evenly. It’s incredible. You just slowly get lighter as time goes on without even noticing any unevenness.”
” This tanner is the BEST quality you can find for your skin, literally. If you don’t want chemicals covering your entire body, then buy this. (On “think dirty” an app for skin care health, it has the best rating you can get).”
