What is it?

While self-tanning has always been a safe way to give your skin a sunless glow, these Self Tanning Glow Drops went viral thanks in part to the easy and mess-free application process.

While Tatiana Eliza was one of the first TikTok users to review the product — amassing more than 1.5 million views — many others have taken to the platform to show just how much the product works, regardless of your skin tone.

These Self Tanning Glow Drops use avocado oil, glycerin and chia seeds to give an omega 3-packed and hydrating solution.

Available in three shades (light, medium, or dark) these drops can be mixed with your favourite face moisturize or body lotion to help brighten your skin, reduce redness, and even skin tone for a natural glow.

Play around with the tan you want by adding 2 to 12 drops to your skincare routine. The natural-looking tan takes only four to six hours to develop, leaving behind sun-kissed skin — whether you’ve hit the beach or not.

What people are saying

This self-tanner has a 4-star average rating from more than 2,600 Sephora reviews.

Praised for being “easy and convenient,” many reviewers found that this formulation gives them the “right amount of colour.”

One five-star reviewer even claimed that after trying many other face tanning products, “this one takes the prize.” Another was “blown away by the natural glow” the formulation gave.

Another five-star reviewer was also pleased to find the product mixed easily “with their lotion” and the colour did not “transfer onto the sheets overnight.”

However, some users weren’t a fan of the scent, and also note that it takes a bit of trial and error to figure out how many drops you need to get your desired shade.


If you’re in the market for an easier, faster, and mess-free solution to your self-tanning needs, you might want to consider adding the Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Glow Drops to your routine.

Acting as both a moisturizer and tanner, you’ll get a healthy, even glow without the need to even step outside. But, as other reviewers have noted, you may need to go through some trial and error before perfecting your Tanning Glow Drop technique.
