Self-tanners have always been a scary thing for me. Especially when I am trying a new product! Some streak, some turn you orange and some even turn you green, eek! Trust me when I say I've tried a few (a few too many). But here, as your guinea-pig, I present you my holy-grails:
Lorac SelfTANtalizer - Body bronzing gradual self tanner. This product is great because it gives you a long lasting tan but at the same time gives you an immediate glow. Everytime I use this product, I look like I just came back from a vacation from the Caribbeans (don't I wish). But one can pretend right? ;) Use the mitt to spread all over your body after a shower and let it dry before you wear your clothes. Note: The more you layer, the darker the color will get.
Clarins Radiance-Plus Glow Booster - My newly discovered love. (insert praising hands) Finding a face self-tanner is even more difficult than body. The face is a lot more sensitive than the body, so not every self-tanner can be used on your face. If you're like me, your face is naturally 2-3 shades lighter than your body. Putting on makeup becomes a dilemma because I have to go about 2 shades darker as well. This oil is a life savor! You add a few drops to your moisturizer day and night and it gradually tans your skin giving it a beautiful glow. I love that I can just mix it into my moisturizer instead of layering products. I absolutely love this product and have been using it on a few of my clients as well. You MUST try.
