If you’ve ever wondered what self-tanner Kelly Ripa uses, well, you’re not alone. Luckily for us though, the 50-year-old talk show host recently shared the self-tanning product that she’s been loving lately — along with why it’s her new favorite find.
All was revealed on last week’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. During the show, Ripa professed her love for Tan Luxe’s best-selling self-tan drops, which are available for both the face and the body. She detailed the first time she used the drops and explained how impressed she was with the results. “This product is kind of remarkable,” she said. “It stains nothing!”
After waxing poetic about the self-tanning formula, her co-host Ryan Seacrest expressed interest, too. “I hope I find some of this in my dressing room next week!” he said, half-jokingly.
Are these self-tanning products really worth all the hype, though? Well, Tan Luxe’s The Face Illuminating Self-Tan Drops landed an Allure Best of Beauty award in 2018, and it had to beat out a slew of other self-tanners on the market, so, take that for what you will.
As for how they work, it couldn’t be easier. You simply add a few drops of the tanning concentrate to whatever moisturizer, serum, or face oil you have around, and then wash your hands thoroughly to avoid any stains. In addition to adding a natural glow to the skin, it also provides some skin-care benefits thanks to ingredients like soothing aloe vera, nutrient-rich vitamin E, and glycerin for hydration.
These self-tanning drops are super convenient and easy to use — plus, they let you customize the level of glow you want, which is definitely ideal. You simply add one or two drops for a very natural-looking glow, and three to four drops for a more intense payoff.
If you’ve been on the hunt for a new self-tanner to get glowing this winter, consider trying Ripa’s new favorite. You can shop Tan Luxe’s The Face Illuminating Self-Tan Drops for $49 and The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops for $59.
