The $42 Secret to Achieving Jennifer Lopez’s Signature Glow
We’ve already found the best glow up of 2020 — and it’s all thanks to the OG glow queen, Jennifer Lopez. The singer shut down the red carpet at the 2020 Golden Globes on January 5, thanks to that extravagant gown and her dewy, bronzed skin. You won’t be able to get your hands on the former (it was Valentino Haute Couture), but you can scoop up the exact product Lopez used to get that gorgeous sun-kissed glow.
Lopez showed up to the Globes looking like she just returned from an exotic getaway, but in reality, her tan was achieved with Scott Barnes’s cult-favorite Body Bling Bronzer — a moisturizing lotion that’s quickly become “Hollywood’s favorite alternative to self tanner,” per the product description. More importantly, this beauty-shelf find is the key to achieving Lopez’s signature glow, according to brand representatives. The secret is out: For $42, you can look like Lopez — or at least glow like her, and that’s still something, right?
The Body Bling Bronzer boasts a lightweight hydrating formula that gives you a sun-kissed, shimmering radiance without leaving a tacky, uneven, or orange-y sheen on your skin (oh, the perils of self tanner). The brand does recommend giving the lotion plenty of time to dry so that it doesn’t transfer onto your clothes, though. It also easily washes off in the shower, so once you’re done with that glowing radiance, a quick rinse will do the job.

We’ve all been guilty of using a self tanner that makes us look orange instead of tan (it’s called high school). But even those who swore off any sort of bronzing lotions for good should be willing to give this Lopez-approved product a try because, well, it’s J.Lo, after all.
