And there's loooads of really good gradual tans out there that a) won't make you orange b) don't smell like old soggy biscuits and c) won't go hella streaky. 

So if you're struggling with which to pick, here our some of our absolute faves:

Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Lotion, £11.99

Most Popular

Less scary than their deep and dark bronzing mousse, Bondi Sands' gradual lotion is perfect for those who like a natural-looking glow. 

St Moriz Insta-Grad Tanning Mousse, £7.99

Our faves at St Moriz have got a brand new Advanced Pro Formula collection which are even better than their originals. Their insta-grad tanning mousse builds colour over time, but comes out with an instant guide colour so you can judge how much you want. Easy. 

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Tan, £5.59

This one's an absolute bargain and leaves your skin super soft, as well as adding just a hint of tan. 

NKD Skin Gradual Glow Daily Tan Moisturiser, £9.99

No horrible smell, and buildable enough to reach an actual noticeable tan-line - NKD Skin is perfect for those who want a deep colour, without going crazy tanned.

St Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion, £14.99

Most Popular

St Tropez's latest gradual tanner is absolutely one of our favourites ever. It NEVER streaks, no matter how slap-handedly you apply it and leaves skin glowing and with a natural warm undertone. 

Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Gradual Tan, £6.99

Our fave budget tanning brand Cocoa Brown's Gradual Tan is just as good as their one hour mousse. Plus, Kylie Jenner uses it soooo... need we say more?

Dr Organic Moroccan Glow Light Self Tan Mousse, £14.99

Okay so this isn't strictly a gradual tanner - but it's light enough to get away as one. Plus because it's a mousse, it's SO easy to apply so we reeeally wanted to include it in the line up.
