Getting My Tan On (Literally)

Hi everyone :) This summer we have some vacations and other things planned and a big change we are preparing for this fall (will fill you in later), so my summer postings might be a bit sporadic at times. In the meantime of this week with no “crafting”, I wanted to share something fabulous I discovered:

Where my tan comes from
{Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer & Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips}

I figured out how I can look tan from a bottle (or can?). I have tried other rub on lotions and all, but this foam stuff is the absolute best! Everyone keeps telling me I have my Florida tan, but I know it’s not from being out in the sun! You see, we are a very fair skinned family and the sun is strong in FL. We lather on sunscreen like crazy, not really seeing much tan going on. (I also like the shade a lot more when it’s 100+ degrees outside.) I use the foam almost daily on my body and I use Physicians Forumla bronzer on my face. I have very sensitive skin, especially on my face, and this is one thing that doesn’t seem to effect it that much. I also love the mixture of shades it has. It makes the tan look very natural. Now, I know the bottle says 25 uses, but I used my first bottle of this stuff for 2 months (maybe that’s because I only put it on places that would show if I had my bathing suit on) and I have never had a problem with streaking. But, you have to make sure you rub it on evenly and use just enough. Nevertheless, I figured I would share my success and love with these products.

    I’ve used this product as well and was very impressed, lately I have been using L’oreal Sublime Bronze. (As a matter of fact, I just put some on! lol) It’s a lotion, but it’s tinted so you seen where it is applied, even has a slight shimmer to it, my favorite part!

    Thats awesome! I have used the lotion from the same brand but could never tell if it was working or not! Will def. have to try this stuff!!

    Smell is a big deal to me too… tempted to try it, but not if I’m going to stink for days afterwards! lol :) I love bronzer too, I will have to look into that one. I need to replace mine, it feels like I’ve had it forever. Does the bronzer have SPF?

    Okay, the smell isn’t bad at all. I had to wait until I tried it again this morning because I never paid attention to it! It has a light smell, but once it’s been on a few minutes, you have to put your skin right up to your nose to be able to smell it. I personally don’t find it to be a bad/stinky smell.

    The bronzer does not have sunscreen in it. I use a foundation that does, so that takes care of that problem.

    Thanks for the tips! I’m super pale but run a lot and am always looking for something to even out my pale/slightly less pale tan lines. :)
