We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. If you love to keep your skin golden all year round, consider picking up a quality tanning oil. They are crafted to give you a deep, long-lasting natural tan quickly, so you don't have to spend quite so much time out on the beach blanket. Be aware, however, that they intensify the effects of the sun on your skin, and are not to be used as protection. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best tanning oil on Amazon.
