Posts for tag: self-tanning lotions

    Like you, I don’t like to look pasty white in the summer but I also know the dangers that can occur with repeated sun exposure and tanning. I’m so fair that I almost always burn in the sun.  Over the last two summers I’ve done some personal “research” to find the better self-tanners on the market.  I’ve tried all of these products on myself. I should also disclose that I don’t work for any of these companies or products; these are just my personal opinions. I tried many products over the past few years and will only talk about the ones I liked the most.

    First on the list is a product called “tan towel.” Each come individually sealed in a packer so each “towel” is fresh. Once opened it was easily applied all over my arms, legs and face. It dried quickly so I was able to dress in a matter of minutes and it has a fresh smell too! I applied it before bed so when I woke up the color developed and it was a nice tan color- no orange! There were some areas I missed because there is no color to your skin when you apply it, but you get better at applying it with time.

    Second on the list is a product called Mine Tan Foam. It came with an applicator mit so my palms don’t get tanned.  It has a fantastic coffee and coconut scent so I felt like I was on vacation. It was easy to apply because there was a light brown pigment in the product so I could tell where I applied it. It took a little longer to dry so a thin layer is better. I slept with it on and the next morning I woke up with a really glowing tan. Most people though I has laid in the sun!

    Lastly, if you are looking for a less expensive tan, Jergens Natural Glow actually worked pretty well. In my opinion, it doesn’t have a bad smell. Even though my skin tone is light, I though the “medium to dark” lotion gave me a better tan color. The “light to medium” lotion gave me a more orange color.

    So, these are my favorite self-tanner picks. A few tips: follow the directions on the bottle, always exfoliate ahead of time and wash your hands after applying so you don’t have tan palms. 

Happy Self-Tanning!
