(hot) take on the tan: Bronze Palms (@bronzepalms) new Like A Filter drops bring a stunning 10% DHA to the self tanning drop game—something that isn’t very common. This means that those with deeper skin tones or who are looking to achieve a darker tan no longer need to use a lot of drops to achieve their desired look. Because why should you have to apply more if you have a darker skin tone?

They are designed to be mixed in with your favorite facial moisturizer and begin developing around two hours post-application and reach their darkest around the eight hour mark.

“I hated having to choose between a skin-perfecting tan and my skincare routine,” says Bronze Palms’ founder Emily Scott. That’s why she chose to pack the drops with skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin B3, vitamin C, aloe vera, and collagen. “I use my peeling pads, guasha, serums, retinol, then moisturizers with a twist!” she says of her skincare-meets-sunless routine. “I add moisturizer to my palm, drop three drops of tanning serum, then apply to my face and wake up with a tan, skin-perfecting glow.”

how we applied: Dropped four drops into my daily facial moisturizer, lathered on in the morning, washed hands, then let develop throughout the day. The drops don’t need to be rinsed off and instead begin developing after two hours into a glow, three hours into a light tan, four into a medium tan, and after five+ hours into a deep, dark results. The longer you leave the drops on; the darker they’ll be.
