A Great New Sunless Tanner -- The Difference is in the Gel

What: Hampton Sunless Tanning Gel

Why: Usually I go tanning three or four times before meeting my friends at the Jersey Shore for our annual July reunion. My friends, after all, are mostly of Italian and Persian descent and — unlike my English skin — have no trouble getting a deep, brown tan that lasts the entirety of summer. But this year was different. This year, the week prior to said reunion I began using Hampton's sunless tanning gel.

The gel, which the company touts as a product for "quality-minded individuals who enjoy the sun but not the burn," makes for a veritable stress-free application process, since is goes on just like any other body lotion. This facet of a sunless tanner was important to me, having experienced the mortifying orange line of sunless foam and the strange looking Michael Jackson hands that can appear after using protective gloves in a spray-tanning booth. Plus, the gel is hypoallergenic and contains rich moisturizers, so it was an easy substitute for my morning Jergens.

Within three uses I achieved a natural, even looking tan, without a single trip to the tanning booth. Plus, and dare I say it, my fake tan looked even better than my friends' real ones — because mine didn't come with wrinkles. Maybe next year we'll have to move our reunion to the Hamptons.

Price: $32
