It is difficult to name the best indoor tanning lotions because most of it is really personal preference. However, we can help you find the “best tanning lotion” by looking at the products with the highest sales and most reviews. Even though new lotions come out every year there are some really good ones from one, two and even three years ago that still top the charts in terms of how many people keep using them.
One of the all-time best selling tanning lotions is Black 20x by Designer Skin. This is an awesome bronzer tanning lotion that is so good most people don’t even try anything else after using it. It applies evenly, smells great and gives you a deep, dark tan within only a few sessions. Many swear by it and it shows by how many bottles are sold every day. If you’re a frequent tanner there is a very high chance you’ve heard of Black 20x.
Designer Skin also came out with Luminary tanning lotion in 2010 which is a 25x bronzer. This one is even more expensive than Black 20x, at $120 retail price, but technically has more bronzer ingredients in it so could be even better. Even though it just came out recently it is topping the charts in sales and the reviews that come back are almost all positive. I mean how could it not be a good lotion at such a high cost right? **Update: Luminary now exceeds Black 20X in popularity and sales – if you haven’t tried this lotion you are missing out!!
An oldie but goodie is Smoke Black tanning lotion by Supre. This has been out for years but it continues to sell like crazy and it’s hard to find a bad review of this product. It is much cheaper than the other lotions mentioned above which makes it more appealing to those on a budget. The retail price is only around $60 (yes, we said only lol) but you can also get it for about one-third the price online. There are a few different varieties of Supre Smoke but Black is the best one that contains bronzer ingredients in the formula. We recommend this lotion highly for beginners as well as seasoned tanners.

Always remember that with bronzer tanning lotions you should wash your hands right away after you leave the tanning bed so that they don’t get those orange streaks. You should also wait a few hours before showering to let the bronzer do their job fully, you’ll get darker faster if you do this.
