Gradual Tan Rave: Ulta Bronze Glow Daily Moisturizer

Hello! Since Summer is coming to an end and Fall is almost here I thought that I would share my favorite gradual tanner with you. I think that gradual tanners are a great way to maintain a bit of a glow throughout the cooler months. I don't like to have a super dark tan, but I do like a bit of a glow to give my skin a bit of color. I have pretty light skin so I tend to have a hard time finding a product that doesn't turn me super dark or even worse orange! The thought of turning orange held me back from trying self tanners for years, but eventually I discovered gradual tanners. I love gradual tanners because they are super easy to apply and they don't give too much color at one time. Keep reading if you want to know what I think of the Ulta Bronze Glow Daily Moisturizer. link!


  • not streaky
  • has a light and fresh scent
  • dries in about 10 minutes
  • doesn't rub off onto clothes
  • adds just enough color for my skin
  • fades naturally without leaving patches 
  • after about 4-5 days it leaves a nice bronze glow 

  • leaves behind a hint of that typical self tanner scent for the first few hours
Overall, I really love this gradual tanner because it leaves the perfect amount of color and it's not very expensive. I usually apply this with plastic gloves because I'm afraid of my hands getting too dark, but I know that most people just use their hands. This gradual tanner is my absolute favorite at the moment and I try to use it at least a few days out of the week in place of my regular body lotion. I have tried other gradual tanners in the past, but they were either too orange or didn't leave any color. I have tried a few traditional self tanners, but I haven't found the perfect one yet so please leave your suggestions for self tanners and gradual tanners in the comments below. 

See you soon,
