Buy Now, Use This Weekend: The 5 Best Bronzers on Amazon Right Now

When summer rolls around, I always feel a bit like Venus in her shell—emphasis on the pale and pasty skin. 80-something degree weather, longer days, and shorter nights means spending ample time in the sun—but on the flip side, baking my skin is not exactly high on my priority list. It's the classic summertime Catch 22: How do I look like the part of a bronzed goddess (sorry, Venus) while staying protected?

Self-tanning is always a win, but for a quick glow en route to a night out, bronzer is the MVP. The trick is finding a formula that imparts ultra-flattering, believable color—and with those criteria in mind, we tracked down some of the best bronzing products on Amazon. Bonus: They're all available through Prime, which means that if you order them now, you can still get glowing before the weekend ends.
