DuWop Sun Drops

This bronzer could also be considered a miracle serum. Described by DuWop as a universally flattering bronzing serum, it imparts a healthy glow while also conditioning and hydrating the skin. If that’s not enough, then you’ll be happy to find out that it also contains collagen-based ingredients that aid in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Pick up a bottle for $28.

Sally Hansen Healing Beauty Weightless Bronzing Powder

A new product from one of our favorite drugstore brands, this is a waterproof bronzer. It’s made to prevent excess shine and melting makeup issues that can occur from too much sweat, heat, humidity or oil. Priced at $6, this is an essential and super accessible summer beauty buy.

Tarte’s Amazonian clay bronzer

Tarte's clay matte waterproof mineral powder bronzer gives a sun-kissed look while also helping to improve skin’s texture, tone and clarity. Each $29 compact comes packed with ingredients that promote healthy skin. Amazonian clay helps to provide skin balance, mineral pigments soothe and soften skin and vitamins A, C and E help to prevent premature signs of aging and skin damage.

A Tan for All Seasons by Bliss

Bliss makes many amazing skin care products and this is one of them. This self-tanning mist is formulated with aloe vera, antioxidants and a instantly-visible bronzer that gives you a beach-ready glow right away and helps you to avoid streaks. This bronzer is also transfer resistant, so it won’t stain clothing. Botanical extracts leave a sweet citrus scent and the tanner may even help to make cellulite less noticeable. Good for your skin and your look, the $36 price tag is well worth the easy-to-achieve, natural looking tan.

Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer

Totally splurge-worthy, this waterproof product is made to get you through the hot and humid summer months with a flawless face. It’s an extended-wear bronzer that blends, smooths and contours, on top of withstanding extreme moisture -- swimming pool moisture! It’s free of oil, parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and synthetic dyes. And it's available at Sephora for $45.

Lorac TANtalizer Award Show Glow

A multi-functioning bronzer that will leave you looking and feeling fabulous, this is a firming body bronzing mousse that contains caffeine and anti-cellulite ingredients to help smooth the skin as it firms and tones.
