We rounded up a bunch of  always in-the-know fashion and beauty peeps, shined a bright light in their eyes and shone a magnifying glass over their glowing golden skin to find out the exact bronzing products they are swearing by this summer. From gradual tanning lotions to deep, dark tanning creams, here's what they (and I) had to say about the bronzers we can't live without.

Have we missed any? How do you get your bronze on?

    I use Dove Summer Glow for my body which is excellent and lasts a couple days, also you can apply it daily and it will build up for a deeper tan. For my legs if they’re looking a bit pasty, I swear by Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs – this stuff is amazing and you can see the results instantly.

  • MissyK says:

    The new Garnier BB cream is great for a quick glow top up. I use it every morning with a bit of bronzer for a quick, fresh look.

    I can’t believe nobody has mentioned Nars Laguna bronzer! Fabulous colour that suits almost everyone (including me, and I’m very pale!). I use it every morning to contour, or if I need a hint of all-over face colour. Blends beautifully for no harsh lines. I love it!

  • Courtney says:

    I love the Ella Bache tanning foam it looks absolutely gorgeous and healthy! Without the streaks smell or orange colour, definitely give it a try!
