Everyone loves the look of being tan, not overly done, but a nice sunkissed glow. The healthiest way to do this is with self tanners.
My favorite so far has been the Jergens Natural Glow. I like the smell of it and it's gradual so if you miss a spot one day it's not really going to be noticeable. But you have to put it on EVERY SINGLE DAY for about a week straight. Then you go to applying about once every 2 weeks. If you skip a day or two it looks terrible.
I learned of Fake Bake and I really thought they would be perfect for me to have that glow. So I contacted them. They sent me the Flawless spray.
It came with an application mitt and gloves
Just the left leg done... The lighting changed.
There was much more of a difference in person I promise!!
So it was super easy to use. I sat on the towel just in case. I put on the gloves (both just in case) and put the mitt on. I sprayed the solution directly onto the mitt and spread it on in a circular motion. The spray smelled so good, it had a nice subtle tropical smell to it!! YUM.
It worked very nice and was FAST. I had both legs done in about 3 minutes. Then I sprayed a little extra on the mitt and went back over them.
Here's the thing...
I shaved and exfoliated right before doing this. But my legs are SUPER sensitive to anything and I need to use a lotion immediately to prevent razor burn. Well this burned the second I put it on and then after a bit my legs looked like this
It all got right into my pores and burned.
SO after about a minute I got in the shower and rinsed my legs off.
This stuff has a color to help you see where it's going and your next shower THIS WILL WASH OFF, but your tan should still be there. WELL Mine rinsed off and my legs are still quite tan!!
It did wash off some of the tan, but it's been about 3 hours now and they're tan!! TRUST ME. Not as white as they started out.
I think next time I do this, I'll shave one day, then the next day I'll exfoliate and do the spray. I loved the process, but my legs are super sensitive. I think this would work quite nicely on my arms or the rest of my body though. Just not on my calves!!
I only tried my legs though. So you should do this at night and then shower the next morning (I should've showered in the morning then applied this at night, not right away) and do it 3 days in a row. Then once a week to maintain. You should also exfoliate once a week to maintain it as well.
I washed off the mitt as I learned reading other blogs. They said when they applied again the old color would rub off on their body. So I rinsed it off well and it should be totally dry before using again.
I did like it and the process was easy! It smelled good too. And it's really not that expensive either!
Price: This set with mitt and spray is $24. Right now it comes with a $12.95 value of a FREE Bronze on the Glow
Overall: **** The legs thing was probably my fault. I did it IMMEDIATELY after shaving and showering.
