Brand Overview

There’s a skin-unhealthy amount of fragrance in this self-tanner, along with numerous fragrant plants. That makes it a tough sell compared with several other self-tanners that turn skin color using the exact same ingredient, dihydroxyacetone. It’s nice that this contains cosmetic pigments for instant color (and shine) as your tan develops, but lots of self-tanners offer this benefit without the significant amount of fragrance.

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: Yes

This light, milky lotion glides on effortlessly and dries quickly, leaving a radiant glow. Advanced tan-perfecting technology is proven to deliver your most natural-looking shade ever, with color starting to develop in under an hour. Color deepens with repeated use.

Estee Lauder At-A-Glance

The history of Estee Lauder goes back to 1946, when the woman who created the brand (and for whom it is named) began selling creams and lotions made by her chemist uncle. From its humble beginnings, Estee Lauder has grown to become a multibillion-dollar company whose products are sold all over the world and advertised in just about every fashion and women's lifestyle magazine available.

The biggest compliment we can pay to the venerable Estee Lauder line is that their moisturizers and serums can largely be described as state-of-the-art. Though fragrance is often intrusive, but when it comes to formulary excellence culminating in products that give skin what it needs to function optimally, they are tough to beat.

When it comes to makeup, by and large the brand also exceeds expectations. Though there are some under-performing products (you can read more about them in our individual reviews), Lauder has a number of excellent options, most notably its lip colors.
