Although summer is still a few months away, it’s never too early to determine which tanning drops will become your go-to. (That way you won’t have a mishap on your tropical vacation.)

On the latest episode of What the Dupe, PureWow creator Matthew put the Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops ($36) to the ultimate test by comparing the product with a cheaper alternative: Indeed Labs Nanobronze Bronzing Drops ($25).

In the episode (see above), Matthew explained why he chose this product. “These Drunk Elephant bronzing drops have taken over the beauty community,” he said. “It has become impossible to get your hands on—in-store, online—so to have an alternative is really important.”

He continued, “It’s a very specific product. Not a lot of people make this kind of bronzer that you can warm up the skin with instantly.”

Matthew also revealed that it can be used in two different ways: “You can use this as a bronzer, or you can mix it in with a moisturizer which is what I’m going to be doing today with both of the products.”

So, did the Indeed Labs Nanobronze Bronzing Drops live up to expectations? Watch the video to find out.
