What's this TikTok tanning lotion everyone is obsessed with?

Influencers like @iwinnieeexi, @francassano1, and @skymandell have been using a bottle of self-tanning drops that they mix with their go-to moisturizer to create a super natural-looking "I just spent five days in Hawaii" glow. The brand is Isle of Paradise, and you can get it for $30 at Sephora. The beauty of this product is that you don't need gloves or worry about having to wash your hands immediately after applying it, nor do you need to fear those uneven streaks that normally come with regular self-tanning sprays and lotions.
