The Pink Lily Luxury Tan Guide: Everything You Need to Glow

The Pink Lily Luxury Tan Guide

We love having a sun-kissed glow year-round. Being tan reminds us of beaches, boats, and enjoying the outdoors on summer vacation. There’s no question we feel more attractive, vibrant, and confident when we’re tan. We also know that too much sun exposure and indoor tanning beds come with their fair share of risks.

Pink Lily Founder, Tori Gerbig, agrees. “When I was in college, I lived in tanning beds, and I had no idea that I was damaging my skin and increasing my chances of getting skin cancer. Since then, I’ve had to deal with pre-cancerous cells and moles on my body and a family history of skin cancer. I developed the Pink Lily Luxury Tan Collection so everyone could have access to a safer alternative to getting out in the sun.”

Our Pink Lily Luxury Tan Collection currently includes Glow Drops, a Sunless Tanning Foam Self-Tanner, Luminizing Body Lotion, and a variety of tanning mitts.

What’s the difference, you ask? Read on.

Luxury Tan Glow Drops

These tanning drops were developed for the face (or body), allowing you to control the level of glow while fitting easily into your existing skincare routine. Simply mix anywhere from 2-12 Glow Drops with your favorite moisturizer, serum, or foundation. Then wait 4-5 hours for a streak-free, natural-looking glow to develop, which can be adjusted to achieve your desired level of tan.

Formulated per the Pink Lily Clean Beauty Standard, these drops are oil-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, vegan, cruelty-free, and suitable for all skin types. The ingredient responsible for giving skin that tanned look is a natural sugar derivative called DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). According to the Derm Review, DHA “reacts with the amino acids or proteins in the layer of dead skin cells that sit on the outermost layer of the skin”, causing them to temporarily darken for that tanned looking glow.

The drops also contain a unique blend of botanical extracts including Aloe, Pumpkin Seed, Avocado, Tomato Fruit, and Cranberry in addition to Vitamins B, C, and E to help skin look and feel more hydrated and moisturized. Rated 4.5/5 stars, our customers rave about how easy it is to build their level of tan, that it’s streak-free, doesn’t turn skin orange, and that it leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.


  1. Wash hands before application.
  2. Dispense a nickel-sized amount of your favorite skincare product into your palm, add the suggested amount of Glow Drops to achieve your desired tan, and mix.
    • 2-4 drops for a sun-kissed glow
    • 5-8 drops for a warm golden tan
    • 9-12 drops for a bronzed tan
  3. Apply the mixture to the desired area and blend into the skin until fully absorbed; follow with additional skincare products or makeup application.
  4. Allow 4-5 hours for your glowing, streak-free tan to fully develop.
  5. Wash hands after application.
  6. Repeat as needed when the tan begins to gradually fade.

Luxury Tan Sunless Tanning Foam Tanner  

This bestselling, coconut-scented foam tanner comes in a choice of 2 customizable shades: Light-Medium and Medium-Deep. The formula is powered by 100% natural DHA and infused with a unique blend of oils including Macadamia Seed, Avocado, Jojoba, Rose Fruit, Cucumber Seed, Coconut, and Grape Seed as well as Vitamins C and E to help moisturize, nourish, and condition skin. You’ll start to see a difference in as little as 1-2 hours after application, and your tan will continue to darken over the next 24 hours. If tanning for a special event, we recommend applying the foam 2 days prior, which will allow you to apply another layer if you desire a deeper shade.

Our fans have awarded our Tanning Foam 4.7/5 stars saying they love the ingredients, the easy application, the natural look, and that it dries quickly, leaves no sticky residue, and does not look orange or blotchy.

Luxury Tan Luminizing Body Lotion

If you’re like us and always pressed for time, our Luminizing Body Lotions are great for getting a natural-looking tan in minutes.

The silky, lightweight lotion comes in 3 shades: Sunkissed Glow, Beachy Glow, and Bronze Glow. The formulas contain iron oxides, naturally occurring red, yellow and black pigments that are combined at different levels to create the range of shades. These bronzing pigments are blended with Mica, another naturally occurring mineral, to add temporary color and a subtle pearly sheen, even out skin tone and blur imperfections. The vegan, cruelty-free formula is also packed with ingredients that help nourish and moisturize skin, thanks to a blend of Glycerin, plant-derived oils, and Vitamin C and E.

With an impressive 4.8/5 star rating, our customers say they love the scent, the easy application, the natural-looking glow, that it's Dermatologist, allergy and clinically tested and safe for sensitive skin, and that it washes off easily after wear.


  1. Apply a small amount of lotion onto clean, dry skin using your hands or a tanning mitt.
  2. Blend along your limbs and torso using sweeping, circular motions for even application.
  3. Layer as desired to achieve your customized coverage level.
  4. Wash hands after application.

Remember, these products do not contain sunscreen so you still need to use sun protection while using sunless tanners.
