California North Titanium Self Tanner, highest rated self tanner, self tanner without carotene



California North Self Tanner is best applied in a few easy steps. We recommend using California North Gelskin Wash and Gelskin Scrub to condition your skin before applying Self Tanner.

Begin by showering, cleansing your skin with California North Gelskin Wash to remove debris. Apply Gelskin Wash using your preferred method, scrubbing gently. Rinse clean with warm water.

Next, exfoliate your skin with California North Gelskin Scrub using a soft cloth or by directly applying in a gentle, circular motion. Scrubbing your skin will remove any remaining dead skin cells and further condition your skin. Rinse clean with warm water and dry off completely.

Apply Self Tanner evenly twice on the first day, approximately 3-4 hours apart. Rub into skin well and wash hands promptly after applying. Maintain every 4-5 days or as needed by applying evenly. For best results, avoid swimming or showering within the first 2 hours of use to allow Self Tanner to absorb into skin thoroughly.

For external use only.  Keep away from eyes. If material accidentally enters the eye, rinse well with plenty of clean water. Seek medical attention if irritation persists. Contains Oxybenzone.

  1. AMAZING Sunless Tanner

    Posted by TONYA GRACY

    I strongly suggest this wonderful product for anyone who enjoys a golden bronze appearance, without the damage of sun and tanning beds. It’s soft, creamy and goes on smoothly without clogging your pores. Truly Amazing. Thank you California North!

  2. Glowing

    Posted by HZ

    This is the only self tanner that I have used in the past 10 years that actually works. It gives my skin a natural glow that I just wasn't able to get from any of the other products I've tried. Well done California North!

  3. The BEST self tanner!

    Posted by Brenda O.

    I have used California North Self Tanner for 10+ years. Can't remember how I found it, but know that what appealed to me was the natural tan, ingredients my sensitive skin would tolerate, and the SPF protection - enough for daily use/when not in prolonged outdoor activities. I can apply this daily, as I would a moisturizer/body lotion, and have a natural tan on my otherwise fair, 'too white for shorts or short sleeves body', with some SPF protection. I am truly dependent on this product :). I can even use this on my face (super sensitive skin) when I want to have a 'tan'.

  4. Still the best!

    Posted by Brenda Gene

    I've depended on this self tanner for 20+ years. Blonde, fair skinned, I stumbled upon this product 20+ years ago when I was told I had to wear daily sun protection - no more tanning. I tried every available product, and still check out the new ones. This is still the best. Natural 'tan', easy to apply (I apply almost daily during the summer months), super mild, pleasant scent (I don't smell it, but I've often been asked about the pleasant scent/cologne I'm wearing in the am when I've recently applied it). I literally depend on this as soon as the weather warms enough for short sleeves and shorts. When I first started ordering this, there was an SPF label - think it was 4 or 7. It is no longer labeled as such, but the ingredients still include titanium dioxide, and it still works for me - the low level I need for minimal sun exposure, but some protection.
    Oh yes.. and my husband borrows it when he switches to shorts for golfing.

  5. Realistc looking tan

    Posted by Patricia Petz

    I've been using this self tanner for years. It definitely gives me a natural looking tan. The downside is that it stains my clothes and can't be washed out. It has ruined a couple of my tops and my pajamas are all marked. Yet this product is so natural that I continue to use it and make sure I'm careful what I wear now.

  6. My absolute favorite!

    Posted by Jeanie

    This self tanner gives me a natural looking tan without streaks or smells. I’ve been using it for years and it never disappoints. By far the BEST self tanner on the market. Fantastic coustomer service, great products, California North rocks!

  7. Best Tanner Ever

    Posted by Hal

    I've used a lot of self tanners over the years since I have a pale complexion, but not anymore. With this self tanner, everyone compliments me about my tan. I'm often asked where did I go over the weekend to get some sun. I tell them I went to California, I just don't say it's California North! Very natural golden brown tan color. Love this product and Jim, the owner, is just great. I had issue when I ordered the wrong product (my fault not theirs) and I emailed them, Jim responded and corrected it for me. Great product great company!

  8. Absolute Best. No question about it!

    Posted by Mary E.

    Nothing else out there will get you this type of natural looking tan. I've tried dozens of other tanners and nothing beats self tanner by California North. Perfect shade, easy to apply and maintain. Please..never stop making this product!

  9. Best Self-Tanner out there

    Posted by Jenny

    This is hands down the best self-tanner I've tried (and believe me, I've tried MANY). Creates natural color, no stinky odor, easy to apply, no pore-clogging bronzer in it.

  10. Best Self Tanner Ever

    Posted by Melissa L.

    I am a beauty product Junkie. I have tried every self tanner from the drugstore to Sephora to spray beds. This is hands down the best I have found. I prefer 1 application to the directions 2 but that is just me. It is awesome stuff.

  11. The Best Sunless Tanner

    Posted by J. Hicks

    I recently purchased this sunless tanner after reading lots of reviews and I must say I am quite pleased with the results. It is a natural looking tan (I am quite pale), not too dark or orange and there is really no odor. After the first application, you should re-apply after a few hours. The next morning I was pleasantly surprised at the color and you can skip a couple of days before needing to apply more, instead of the usual every other day. I highly recommend this product!

  12. ...and moisturizing too!!

    Posted by Jerri

    Is it too much to ask for a face tanner with true moisturizing benefits? Not anymore! LOVE this product!! Have tried SO many other face tanning products...this one adds moisture and color...and love the lightness of the color! Knowing you can apply the next day for darker color gives me easy control, and what's not to love about that!

  13. Gets the job done!

    Posted by Ross

    This is the best self-tanner ever. You will not turn orange. Very natural looking. Just make sure to apply evenly - goes on like regular skin lotion. If you happen to already be tan, this product will make your tan last longer. Definitely worth the cost.

  14. Well designed. Fantastic results.

    Posted by Brooke M.

    I purchased California North Self Tanner after a friend recommended it to me. Wow, very impressed!

    The application is very easy, a lotion consistency that absorbs easily. A little goes a long way. Scent is a very subtle light citrus.

    I saw the tan results within a few hours and applied a second time as instructed on the bottle. The results were fantastic. No orange or bronze. Definitely a very natural tan. You simply look like you've been out in the sun a few days prior!

    I also love that they use a natural tan ingredient and no carotene. Well design product with great results!
