Do you have the winter blahs? What’s better than a real tan? Flaunting a fake tan that looks so good you might as well have spent a week in the Bahamas! The Blonde and The Brunette believe a year-round radiance is always in style. We haven’t really had a “winter” out here in Los Angeles, but no matter where you are, sunless tan is the safest way to add color to your life. If you’ve done your research, I’m sure you are already aware of the suns harsh dangers, so why not forget the baby oil-at-the-beach trick, forget the smelly tanning bed, and “faux tan” it all year long!
When most people think of a “sunless tanner“, Snooki and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast often comes to mind. Put those thoughts aside, and take a look at The Blonde and The Brunette’s favorite sunless tanners that will give you the perfect glow, that keeps you feeling sexy even without the sunshine.

This moisturizer gives you an instant hint of color, then slowly deepens a full shade darker within three days.

The creme de la creme of self-tanning wipes, just one paraban-free towelette does the job, dries quickly without streaking, and has a fresh, clean scent.
