Hello, summer! Hello, sexy glow! With summertime here, we’ve shed our coats and snow gear only to unveil the winter ghost in all of us! If you’re looking to enhance your skin’s color this season, this is certainly the post for you. Finding multiple options for gluten-free bronzers in your local Walgreens or grocer might not be as easy as you think, so if you’re interested in a safer way to darken your tan, check out the bronzers we came across below.
L’Oreal SUBLIME BRONZE Self-Tanning Gelee: ” There is no gluten in the Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning gel, lotion, or mist,” claimed the L’oreal rep. Since all three of the following products do not contain gluten, you are free to pick and choose to your heart’s content. Natural-looking, the long-lasting glow is what you’ll get with any of these three products!
Neutrogena Build-A-Tan Gradual Sunless Tanning: Neutrogena’s rep claims that their micro-mist product has no added gluten or gluten-containing grains included in the ingredients. “We like to tell you that even though we have not added any gluten, we also do not test for the presence of gluten in the final product, and therefore it could contain traces of gluten at the end of production,” she added. This spray tan covers evenly, dries in 5 minutes, and works at any angle for those hard-to-reach areas. This product is oil-free, non-comedogenic, and comes in two different colors: medium and deep.
Too Faced Royal Oil: The kind rep at Too Faced claims that this product is formulated without gluten. To top it off, those of you vegans out there will be pleased to know that it is safe for you as well! This bronzing oil not only absorbs quickly to give your skin a warm glow but will also protect against harsh environmental factors. You can also get excited about the versatility of this body bronzer. You can comb it through the ends of your hair to protect against demands that tend to come from long days at the salty or chlorinated pool! I love when products have multiple uses!
Vita Liberata Self Tanner: The company’s rep suggested the entire Vita Liberata line, as they are gluten-free. You have several choices to choose between, from a tinted self-tan lotion to a 2-3 week tan mousse to an untinted self-tan lotion. Your choices are limitless, thanks to Vita! Whether you’re looking for a long-lasting bronzer, or a golden bronze tan that lasts 7 days and locks moisture in for 72 hours, the Vita Liberata line is safe to use and is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates. Transform your skin safely for the summer with this great
Bath and Body Work True Blue: Most of us love (or have loved) a trip to Bath and Body Works, as there are scents galore to tickle your fancy in lotions, soaps, perfumes, and yes, even tanning lotions. The Bath and Body Works rep couldn’t offer an “official” gluten-free statement, as products could obtain trace amounts of gluten during production. This particular product does not contain gluten-specific ingredients but includes soybean oil, which has a high probability of cross-contamination during harvest. If you’re severely allergic to any traces of gluten, you might want to choose one of the other great options listed here.
Beauty by Earth Self Tanner: This is an all-natural, gluten-free, vegan, cruelty-free tanning lotion that provides a very natural tan color and pleasant smell – non of that orange skin and awful smell anymore! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Especially for those with sensitive skin.
Skinerals Self Tanner Extender Lotion: Another excellent choice, it’s Cruelty-free, gluten-free, paraben-free, nut-free, and vegan friendly. Skineral’s Amber Glow is designed for all skin types and ideal for bronze healthy skin without exposing it to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. It’s made using premium natural plant-based oils, essential oil blends, fruit, and plant extracts.
Self Tanner, Sunless Tanning Lotion: If you are picky about what you put on your skin, this excellent natural, gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and cruelty-free tanning lotion is definitely for you. It gives you a beautiful, natural-looking tan without the sun or tanning beds.
Designer Skin Body Bronzer: This one is gluten-free and not tested on animals. However, if you are new to self-tanning lotions, this is not for you, as it can be harsh to the skin, especially if you have never used such products before.
