If you know me then you know I will try absolutely anything and everything for a healthy glow. Especially in the summer. I am an extremely pale girl. However, once I have a base tan I seem to be able to keep a good tan. Last summer I was golden all summer long.
Here is a short list of the methods I’ve used to become a bronze goddess:
- Tanning beds. (Yes, yes… I know they are terrible for you… but they are so relaxing and they really give you an amazing result.)
- Tanning oil and my backyard.
- Spray tans. (They’re pretty amazing once you know how to pose.)
- Multiple brands and types of self-tanning lotion. I have yet to find a lotion that doesn’t turn me into an Oompa Loompa.
Needless to say, I am trying again. I was shopping and found Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer on sale. For $2.50. Seriously it is normally $13. I had to buy and try it.
Now I did have a bad experience with their Express lotion last year. I am talking horrible streaks in the summer when I love to wear shorts and capris. I thought perhaps foam would be the way to go. I know it was likely the way I applied it. Apparently this kind starts a natural glow gradually and takes a week to really see results.
Don’t make fun of my pasty legs. This is a shot after application.
I must say I was impressed with the application and the dry-time. Usually while using a lotion you have to wait forever for it to soak into your skin. You stand around waiting like a dolt, walking around not wanting to stain your clothing or furniture. The foam dried instantly and my legs feel lovely and smooth. I’ve had #dryskinprobz all winter and this stuff is actually HELPING. Remind me that I said that in a week if I am whining about how awful my legs look.
So… that brings me to asking who wants to place bets on if I will be whining and regretting this in a week… place your bets, folks.
