It’s safe to say the winter blues are here, thanks to less sunny days and no tropical paradises to escape to. If you’ve been searching for the best self tanners to help get you through the winter, you’re not alone.
While you patiently await the next time you can travel to the nearest beach, there is some good news. A summer glow in winter is possible thanks to a genius beauty product that everyone’s talking about on TikTok.
Beauty TikTok can’t get enough of Isle of Paradise’s Self Tanning Drops that are better than any bronzer or self-tanning wipes you’ve tried. Plus, it just so happens that these tanning drops are a Sephora best seller.

User Tatiana Eliza first brought attention to the drops on Jan. 15 when she uploaded a video after testing out the product herself. The video soon went viral on TikTok; it now has more than 1.5 million views.
In the review, Tatiana shows how she applies the drops. She first washes her face so that she has a clean base, and then she mixes nine drops (or one full dropper) with moisturizer (she uses this best-selling CeraVe cream).
After applying, you see a literally *glowing* Tatiana after she says “get it,” because it’s clear from her complexion that that the drops actually work.
Other TikTok users who have tried the product agree. One user named Kat Bell said that it was the best self tanner she’s ever used. “So so amazing, I will die telling everyone about this product,” Bell said. Another user Nicole Jones said she doesn’t even buy foundation anymore, only these drops!
The best part about these drops that Tatiana fails to mention? They come in three shades (light, medium and dark) so you can use the optimal color for your skin tone. Or, as the directions state, the more drops you use, the deeper the tan. You could opt for the darkest bottle and only use a few drops here and there, which would ultimately make the bottle last longer.
“I’m naturally very fair skinned, but this still gives me a natural looking golden glow. Never orange!” one shopper said. “I’ve used it in lotion for body touch ups too, but the bottle is so small that I think it would use up really fast if used as a whole-body tanner. It smells amazing too, but the scent doesn’t linger. And it makes my moisturizer feel even more hydrating.”
Thanks to these drops you can say hello to that summer glow any time of year.
