Summer Beauty Obsession: Aqua Tan

06/20/2007 at 03:00 PM ET

I hate coming home from the beach with a tan everywhere except my face! Since I always get burned, I lather on the SPF and keep my face completely covered from the sun. Recently, I discovered Aqua Tan, a light weight self-tanner made specifically for the face with green tea extracts and age-defying vitamins. Unlike other self-tanners, there are no messy bronzers, stickiness or odors. Aqua Tan comes in a clear and refreshing spray mist. After exfoliating, I applied a dab to my nose, cheeks and forehead (where the sun should have hit) and in about fifteen minutes I could already see some results. Aqua Tan brought out a natural- no streak- sun-kissed look to where I would have normally gotten burnt. My face was finally the same color as the rest of me and the tan lasted until my next beach trip! Get a tube of Aqua Tan at, $45, use sparingly and should last you the whole summer!- Andrea DeSimone

I just found out Aqua Tan is 100% ALL NATURAL! It’s awesome and looks so natural. I love the smell! My boyfriend loves it too.

You should protect you whole body from the sun – cancer doesn’t solely target the face, nor do wrinkles. I like Prescriptives Sunsheen for a body self-tanner and Aqua Tan sounds cool cause it’s clear and natural.

So you’ve tried Aqua Tan Kris? I was curious about whether or not it made you orange…I have that same problem with my body tanning and my face left looking like casper due to the sunscreen in my make-up…its good to know it looks natural. I’ll have to try it out sometime soon.
