Old lady at CVS talking the ears off of the store employee about self-tanner.
Me: Excuse me…are you talking about self-tanner?
Lady: Yes, I am!
Me: You need to go online and buy Loving Tan. And you need to properly moisturize so it lasts longer and you don’t flake. It’s the best and you just need to trust me. I know.
Lady: I NEED TO WRITE THIS DOWN. Does anyone have a pen??? Thank you!
Sometimes we all feel like the old lady at CVS whom I rescued last weekend (true story). And now I will rescue you, too. Finding the perfect self-tanner has been one of those tasks I’ve been working on since high school. I’ve tried everything under the sun (!) from drugstore brands, to towels, lotions, sprays, and finally mousses. My findings…
- St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Lotion If I ever get tired of my #1 choice (below) then this is definitely my fallback plan. Amazing natural color. The bottle lasts several uses. And the smell is bearable. I used this forever and loved it the most…until I found…
- Loving Tan 2 Hour Express Tanning Mousse in Dark Don’t freak because it says “dark.” I have light/medium skin this is the color for me and let me tell you, it is so incredibly natural. It’s also an express tan, which means you don’t have to sit in weird lotion for 8 hours. Plus, since there’s no need to sleep in it, you won’t ruin your sheets! You can find it at Loving Tan’s website or at Ulta. (Note: Ulta stores only sell the smaller size. You can find the larger bottle on their website.) It’s the best. I can’t say enough about this product. And did I mention it smells like vanilla? It smells like vanilla!
