The Self-Tanner Search
This means that I don't tan when in the sun AND, if I do ever get some color on my own, I am usually red as a lobster. Every year I am faced with this dilemna and every year I am on the hunt for the perfect self-tanner to give me the golden glow I can never achieve myself.
I went shopping with a girlfriend on Friday and our sole purpose was to find the best bottled self-tanner that's not too expensive. (Actually, that's not true. Our sole purpose was to go to the gym but we decided to shop instead of working out.....a much better option I think.) We immediately went to Sephora and looked at everything from Clinique's Self Sun Body Airbrush Spray to Too Faced Tanning Bed in a Tube and even, my personal fave, Dior's Self-Tanner Shimmering Glow but all were way out of the budget I'd allotted.
This is a great product because it's a spray. This makes a world of difference as you can hold the container at every angle and spray till your heart's content. A huge bonus is that it doesn't streak! You don't even need to rub the product into your skin because it comes out more like a dry oil. However, I was rubbing it into my skin, just in case. I will also say that after about three hours, I looked like I had been at the beach all day and really did have a nice all-over glow. THE BEST part of this product, though, is that it doesn't have a smell. Do you realize how gross some self-tanners can be? This one has no foul scent and actually does the trick, without turning me orange. I'd say it is definitely worth the $17.
In the next couple weeks, I'm also going to be trying the Victoria's Secret products as I've heard so much about them and can't wait to do a comparison.
What's your favorite self-tanner?
