I've been kinda bummed that I'm at work and won't be getting any sun for the next couple weeks, so I took matters into my own hands! Instant tan in a bottle! Its probably better for my skin too?!?! Maybe not, who knows...
I've been a fan of ROC MINESOL Self-Tanning Lotion for quite awhile now (ever since I got some for free at work). Its the easiest to apply (except for on your back, which I normally skip, seeing as how I'm wearing clothes anyways) of all the products out there. I mean, we all put lotion on so how hard can it be? All you do is rub, wash your hands (this is a must) and Voila... you're bronzed goddess! It takes a couple of hours before your skin is that bronze color, so don't panic if it isn't instant. I've noticed that my skin feels really soft after I put this on. It doesn't have the greatest smell to it, but its not so offensive that nobody wants to stand near you at the water cooler. I rub it in really well so that I don't look like a zebra, because as much as I love animal prints, I don't want my skin looking like that. Especially because I'm always trying to pass this off as au natural!
Next product I love is Rimmel London's -Sun Shimmer Instant Tan. This is a lotion as well, I have the sexy legs one (another free one I got at work). You rub it on and your instantly tanned! The best thing about this product is it washes off in the shower that evening or the next morning! The only downside is that it isn't permanent, so that means if you run through wet grass (which obviously I have done, or I wouldn't be mentioning it) or get all sweaty you are going to be streaky... just remember to rub it in well if it gets a little wet, and you should be good! I use this on my legs in the summer, because they never seem to match the same color as my arms, so it just evens everything out! I rubbed some on the back of my hand and then took a picture so you could compare the difference! Its not orange, its just the perfect color!
What are your thoughts on self tanners? Do you guys have a favorite, and if so, what is it and why?
On another note...I've spray tanned a few times and always find I come out looking like Chester from the Cheetos bag, so I quit doing that!! Plus its retardedly expensive! I'm just excited to get out there and get some real sun, because that's whats summer is all about.
Random Question Of The Day... What is the one thing that reminds you of summer, or makes you feel like summer if finally here?!? My answer to this question: Pink Lemonade!
