Kelly Ripa dished on the one beauty product she swears by to give her a sun-kissed glow. 

As the fashionista chatted with then co-host Ryan Seacrest about beauty upkeep and routines, she mentioned her secret: “You just need the Tan Luxe, those tanning drops,” she told Ryan.

“It’s very good. It’s foolproof,” she continued. “I use it. It’s so easy,” adding that she got hooked on the product after receiving it as a birthday gift. “I was just looking for a tan,” she said.

THE FACE Illuminating Self-Tan Drops

Kelly said she loves the tanning drops because they don’t rub off or have a messy application process. “This is just like slap it on and go to bed,” she continued. “Roll around in those sheets. It’s not going to come off.”

Tan Luxe Tanning Drops - The Body

When the show’s team uploaded a behind-the-scenes video on Instagram of the beginning of the episode, tons of fans quickly hit the comments asking for the name of the tanning drops that the daytime TV host mentioned. 

We wanted it too - and tracked down the drops! You can shop the Tan Luxe The Face drops either here at Sephora or here at Tan Luxe, starting at $25 for the smallest size. There are also Tan Luxe drops for your entire body, for $60.

According to the brand’s site, the drops work with your existing skincare regime and can transform your favorite moisturizer, serum, or oil into a custom self-tanner. It also minimizes imperfections and even skin tone. 

The drops have also skin-boosting properties of Raspberry Seed Oil, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera that help skin feel hydrated and nourished, and the naturally derived tanning actives (DHA) in it gives a natural-looking glow that complements your own skin tone.
