Even if you haven't heard of Dolce Glow, you've definitely seen it. The cult-fave brand from spray tanner to the stars Isabel Alysa features everything you need to get a sun-kissed glow from home — and at the beginning of this year announced Miley Cyrus as an investor in the company. Not a collaborator, not an influencer: An investor.

So what is it about Dolce Glow that inspired "global icon" Miley to come board? E! talked to Isabel about their new partnership, Miley's favorite products, and more.

E!: How did Miley come to partner with you and Dolce Glow?

So she was actually introduced to me by another tan artist out in Nashville. That artist was using Dolce Glow out there, and said, "This is your girl out in LA. She actually makes Dolce Glow. You have to try it!" So I started tanning Miley [in LA] a few years ago.

She actually fell in love with the product, from the way it made her look, to the way it made her feel, to the ingredients in our line. The rest has been kind of history! Miley came to me and just said, "I would love to be a part of this with you."

More on Miley's favorite products for sunless tanning and safer ways to keep a summer glow below.

Dolce Glow Dolce Self-Tanning Mist

"Miley loves our Dolce Mist," Isabel says. "With the bag-on-valve design, you can turn it in 360 degree angles, and [even] turn it upside down." Does she love anything else about it? Oh, yes. "Obviously, Miley loves that it dries super quick," adds Isabel, "[And] it doesn't stink! It's lightly fragranced, and doesn't smell like self-tanner."

Dolce Glow Luce Clear Self-Tanning Mist

Dolce Glow is an alternative to previous eras of widely-used, less-than-healthy approaches to achieving a sunless glow. The entire line is manufactured in Australia, which has rigorous standards for not just what goes into their products, but what is legally even allowed to. "We know how damaging the sun is," states Isabel — anyone who grew up in the era of pre-at-home tanners can confirm that — which is why high-end ingredients without any "icky" components are integral to her line.

Dolce Glow Acqua Hydrating Face Mist

With its "decadent blend of moisturizing agents" that work together to "lavish your face" in the brand's signature "flawless, natural-looking glow" (minus the UV damage), this "self-tanning water" is one-of-a-kind. It also offers a "mess-free application" from its ultra-fine mist. The result? You should be feeling "hydrated, dewy, and refreshed" in just a few spritzes.

Dolce Glow Mia Instant Body Glow

The Mia "a luxurious hydrating tinted lotion bronzer" that's custom-made by Dolce Glow to "top off your natural-looking glow without any downtime." By developing Mia "with flexibility" in mind, Dolce Glow has crafted something unique: A customizable, buildable, and versatile bronzer-lotion. It can be applied directly to the skin for a deeper effect, or blended with your go-to body lotion for a more "subtle golden" appearance. It's also another Miley-approved fave.

Dolce Glow Kabuki Brush

The Kabuki brush can help you blend your glow for a "flawless, streak-free finish."

Dolce Glow Des Nuda Self-Tanning Lotion

Per the brand, "Des Nuda brings the effortlessly elegant glow of a Mediterranean summer right to your skin. Its moisturizing gradual tanning lotion creates a radiant, light to medium tan," with a "subtle golden finish" that delivers a natural-looking glow.

Dolce Glow Application Mitt

Keep your hands clean and your glow streak-free with this easy-use application mitt. After all, we can't all have a spray tanner to the stars just a text away, but we can have her products in our bathrooms.

Dolce Glow Exfoliation Mitt

The exfoliating mitt is an essential component of any tan. According to Isabel, it helps lay the base for a healthy-looking, even glow. (Consider it doing for the outside what hydrating can do internally.)

Dolce Glow Goccia di Sole Hydrating Self-Tanning Serum Drops

I'll let the brand speak for itself here: This fabulous new product "was formulated to give you a sun-kissed glow without the damage of harmful UV rays." The Goccia di Sole is "blended with skin-nourishing ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Caffeine, Green Tea Leaf Extract, and more," resulting in a "buildable formula" that's "developed to boost your favorite moisturizers, serums, oils, and lotions with self-tanning and hydrating abilities."

Dolce Glow D'Oro Self-Tanning Lotion

One of the popular gradual tanning lotions, this hydrating formula will help you fake a resort getaway — in a natural-looking way.
