Today is the start of summer. Although in my area you wouldn't know it! We have such micro climate weather here. Being by the coast you will get , fog, sun , more fog and then travel 15 minutes 80 degree's! It is a real pain to figure out what to wear each day, layers are your friend!
So of course you want to have a tan! But the best way is the safe way, sunless tanner! It sure has come a long way since I first tried them. Remember the days of the stinky orange glow? I do! I was a victim of it....scary to admit.
But with the bad past history I still try sunless tanners. Since my dad had skin cancer recently. It scared me, thankfully they caught it early and he was treated.
On the hunt for a new one this year. I went searching for reviews. I was first going to try one from Victoria Secrets, but my store is a real pain to get to, so I opted for Bath and Body Works. Plus, I had a coupon! Of course I did!
I looked up reviews before heading to the store. I decided to pick up the
True Blue Spa Bronze Self Tanning Lotion.
I exfoliated my skin before I applied it and then applied lotion to the area's that will grab the most color. I really like the scent, it is light and sort of a flower scent. It does have a very slight hint of the self tanner scent but nothing that lingers.
When you apply it the texture is a cross of a lotion/ gel feel. It applies easily and dries fast. I let it try for at least 10 minutes to be sure.
The instructions state to wait at least 3 hours before you shower or workout. I waited 4 hours. After that time I had a nice even tan that was not too dark. I like a lighter natural color. You can reapply it for more color if you want after the processing time.
My color lasted at least 5 days and the fading was the best part. Most unless tanner do not fade well on my skin. I get these weird fade area's. But not with this one, it faded so evenly and I actually didn't even realise it had completely faded until one day I noticed I looked paler again!
I have used this 3 more times and every time I have great results! I will be buying this again and hope they do not stop making it!
I hope you give it a try too! And have a beautiful tan this summer.
Be safe and have lots of summer fun!
Until next time xoxo
