Go for the Gold: Kate Somerville

When my most gloriously golden friend (CLEARLY BBJ's Amber, who loves all things gilded, aureate, Liberace-esque) tells me to "get involved" with a sunless tanner, I pay attention.

Such is the case with Kate Somerville's astonishingly well-formulated Somerville360° Body Self Tanning Towelettes and also Face Self Tanning Pads. These easy-peasy single-use packettes (the Face formulation even comes ready to go on a mini finger mitt) can be applied (post-exfoliation, of course - let's not get crazy) in mere moments, and over the course of the next 3-4 hours, the MOST divinely natural tan develops, with not a hint of that telltale, from a bottle scent we've all come to know and disdain.

Sephora conveniently offers up the Golden Glow Kit at the moment, which pairs six of each (Body Towelettes and Face Pads) with Kate's ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. This cult fave scrub is a bit much for my sensitive facial skin, but was nothing short of a savior on my newly uncasted and thereby under-exfoliated right arm. The Golden Glow Kit is an $80 value, but you can pick it up for just $58 here or at a Sephora near you - voila, the world's most perfect sunless tan!
