Getting My Glow On!

Being it is school vacation a.k.a. Spring Break in our household, I am getting my glow on by starting my self-tanning ritual. Yes - I am a bit early this year. Hey, just because I didn't get to St. Bart's this week doesn't mean I can't look like I have been there - right?

So far I have only been using a few products. You know, the self-tanners mixed into a moisturizer for the most gradual sun kissed glow.

I initially started with the Fair for my face, and the medium for most of my body. I just purchased the medium for my face as well, and will begin to use that to see a little faster results.

I like the gradual results, but I hate the smell. It stinks - but if you can get past that,  the color is even, very natural, and gradual. I only use it at night before bed so I can wash off the starchy smell first thing in the morning.

I have been using the Bare Bronze Daily Glow Facial Moisturizer ($17.50)on my face, neck, and chest - and I love the way it has just enough moisture for my skin to get me through the day. I plan to use their Bare Bronze Gleaming Self-Tan Body Tint ($18) later this week, when I am ready for a more deep bronzed glow.

While this only begins my self-tanning rituals, I am excited to discover new self-tanners, and get to know my old favorites a little better.  Look for my ongoing reviews as we progress into warmer weather.

I'll have to try the Victoria's Secret Bare Bronzer. Being extremely pale, I'm always looking for a natural-looking self tanner. And I love pina coladas!

Yeah, Go Sox!
I use the Jergen's lotion too and hate the smell - but you're right. The colour goes on evenly and it actually bronzes your skin!
