Being tan all year round makes me happy and feel more confident in my otherwise pale skin…
I couldn’t accomplish this without a solid self tanner!
You guys are always asking about my favorite vegan self tanner so I’m finally sharing the deets… and the brand is Chocolate Sun (I have a 20% off code at the end!).
I’ve used them for years. You will fall in love with their organic ingredients and the intoxicating chocolate cake smell with hints of vanilla and coconut. No nasty fake tanner smell or orange streaks… no harmful chemicals… and the DHA is derived from sugar beets! Based in Santa Monica and run by female entrepreneurs, they’ve established a cult following!
I’ve been using self tanner since high school and so far, after trying many different brands, Chocolate Sun is the only brand I feel good about recommending here on the blog. As far as self tanner goes, my standards are high! Ingredients are of the utmost importance but it also has to work. By work I mean not only get you beautifully bronzed, but it can’t be streaky or orange. It must hydrate and be easy to apply too!
Chocolate Sun is all of those things, on top of being vegan, organic and cruelty free.
There are SO many self tanning brands out there and if you’re reading this, I’m sure you’ve walked the aisles too, only to be disappointed by the conventional ingredients, which totally suck! Since our bodies suck up everything we apply on our skin, we must be super careful and picky about what we slather on – self tanner included! Hand made in small batches, all Chocolate Sun products are created using organically grown, locally sourced and wild crafted botanicals and herbs, pure essential oils, and natural preservatives. Free of mineral oils, dyes, lanolin, parabens, PABA, alcohol, petro-chemicals, sodium lauryl sulfate and formaldehyde.

For The Face:
My swedish/polish skin allows me to get a nice tan in the summer, but I still supplement with self tanner since I do try to protect my skin from too much sun. In the winter months though, my bronzed look sadly fades away and I’ll use sunless tanner after every single shower – even if it says use only once a week, which I don’t understand because mine almost always washes off in the shower?! I’m weird and like to be more tan than normal I guess!
