Product Love

Hi friends! I've missed blogging and communicating with everyone. I had a minor setback with an infection and had to do several rounds of antibiotics. I'm finally getting back to a "routine" and my energy level is increasing. I sincerely appreciate all the supportive comments and tweets you sent me. You all are so sweet!

Anywho....with all the time recovering in bed the past few weeks, I've had a lot of time to look down at my ghost white legs. They are SKURRY white. I'm not a "tanner", so I depend on using self tanner and bronzers to get a summertime glow. 

There's several self tanners that I like and have used for several years now. Sun Labs and St. Tropez are the brands that I find myself buying again and again. They're both tinted, so I wear disposable gloves when applying to avoid brown palms. 

After watching one of my favorite beauty guru's self tanner suggestions, I decided to try "Faux Tan" by Bare Escentuals. I can't believe I didn't think of using a bronzer or Kabuki brush to apply self tanner before seeing Emily's video.

I ordered the same kit from QVC, and have been really pleased with the results. I can see the biggest difference on my feet and ankles. No matter how careful or how much I moisturized PRIOR to applying self tanner with my hands, I still had some streaks. The brush application takes care of that problem! I'm sure you can use a Kabuki brush along with your own tinted self tanner. 

You will still want to apply a light lotion to the tops of your feet, ankles, around your wrists, knees, and elbows before brushing on the "Faux Tan".

Do you have a favorite self tanner 
or application method that you like? 
I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. I highly recommend the jergens natural glow foam. I usually streak really bad due to spastic application and I have been using this a while and have had NO streaks. It is wonderful and CHEAP and looks natural.

  2. I switched to self tanner wipes and they seem to give me a better consistency of color, but, yeah, ankles and feet are still tricky. My daughter loves the ULTA brand, but it was sold out, so I got L'Oreal and like it.

  3. I really like loreal sublime!! I love the aerosol spray and i spray it on like hairspray on my legs!!!

  4. Thanks for the suggestions! I can't believe I haven't tried Loreal before.
