This time last year I had just returned from my honeymoon cruise a bronzed goddess and then was lucky enough to spend Memorial Day weekend in the sunny islands of Hawaii. My transition into summer clothes was not a problem. I was more than happy to show off my fabulous tan. This year my legs have not seen the light of day in months and it is down right scary. Since a few sessions in the tanning bed were out, my mission to find a decent sunless tanning lotion began.
I scoured the shelves at CVS trying to find one that wouldn't make me look like an oompa-loompa and decided to try Jergen's Natural Glow Express Formula. Three shades darker in only three days? Sounded like a winner to me. They were out of the fair/medium variety so I went with the medium/tan praying this wouldn't turn into a disaster. I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up the next morning to see a pretty big difference. My biggest mistake was not using any on my hands or feet which resulted in a very obvious white line at my wrists and ankles. Oops. I was able to correct it pretty easily and am now sporting a pretty even sunkissed glow. (It still looks a little funky around my feet, but I think it's because I got a shade darker than I should have.) Plus I didn't think it smelled like a stinky self tanner at all and it left my skin super soft. Bonus! All in all I give it a B+. I think I may try the non-express formula now that I have a pretty good start.
