8 Of The Best Products For A Faux Summer Glow

Between the storm and the need for sun safety, chances are you don't have quite the tan you expected at this time of year! Forget burning your precius skin in our harsh rays and gain a real-looking tan with dewy skin by using these clever little products. 

Here are our picks of the best products for that summer glow. 


The Lack-Lustre Skin Fixer | Bobbi Brown Remedies - Skin Moisture Solution

You know that tight feeling you get when you step off a plane or spend the morning walking to work being lashed by wind in Winter? Well it definitely doesn’t scream Euro-summer. But we’ve got a solution for that. These magic drops boost hydration in a flash and help to restore your skin’s glow.

The Totally Believe-able Tan | Clarins – Golden Glow Booster for Body

Sure, you could definitely get a spray tan. But if you haven’t actually been to St. Tropez in the last couple of weeks, is anyone going to believe it’s real? Look, probably not. If you want that maybe she’s been on holidays, but maybe she’s had 9 hours sleep kind of look—we’ve got you. Clarins Glow Booster is liquid sunshine in a bottle. Add around fave drops to your fave moisturiser (yep, any moisturiser) and it will gradually boost radiance and develop into a natural-looking tan.


The Miracle Primer | Napoleon Perdis - Auto Pilot Bronzing Primer

Make your makeup last longer and appear just a little more dewy and fresh with this bronze-tinted primer. It has tiny light reflecting particles that blur any sneaky little imperfections whilst smoothing your skin.

This-Smells-Like-Portofino Fragrance | Estee Lauder – Bronze Goddess 

Whilst we’re not entirely sure what sunshine (or a holiday) in a bottle smells like, we’re willing to bet this would be it. A concoction of creamy coconut, vanilla, jasmine, lemon and juicy mandarin, you just need to spritz this on at your desk at 3pm and imagine you’re sipping cocktails by the pool.


Glossy Hydrated Limbs In A Bottle | Diptyque - Satin Oil for Body & Hair

We know you’re not necessarily showing much skin in winter, but hydrated glossy limbs are a must, especially for when you’re moisturiser just isn’t cutting it. This dreamy French oil is enriched with avocado oil and smells like fresh jasmine.

The Holiday In A Tube Eye Treatment | Murad – Eye Lift Firming Treatment

This holy-grail gel works in just 15 minutes to lift, firm, tighten and refresh your pretty peepers.


Overnight Face-Glow In A Tube | Charlotte Tilbury – Overnight Bronze & Glow

A hydrating face mask with a touch of fake tan, that you can SLEEP in? There might not be a buffet breakfast for you when you wake up, but this is as damn close to dreamy holiday skin sans passport that you could hope to get.

The Summer-Locks Restorer | bhave – Deep Conditioning Mask

Restore your hair's glory by enriching it with Keratin protein and macadamia oil found within bhave’s Deep Conditioning Mask. It saves dry and brittle hair and restores shininess and softness in just minutes.
Want to go deeper? These are our fave hydrating face masks.
