I have been self tanning since the beginning of February I searched the web, watched YouTube reviews, and visited local drugstores for tanning products to try out! I came across Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow and the St. Tropez 3 Hour Express Tan. Additionally, I purchased Aveeno Moisturizer, St. Tropez Tanning Mitt, and Lush Body Butter to help the self tanning process.
1) Jergens Natural Glow in Medium to Tan- Under $15
The Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Tan Moisturizer is great for a subtle glow and it is a reasonable price too which is great for tanning on a budget! This tan lasted me 3-5 days at a time and I honestly saw a difference 10 minutes after applying it.
2) St. Tropez 3 Hour Express Tan- $65
The St. Tropez 3 Hour Express Tan is a relatively new product from the St. Tropez Self-Tanning product line. I love it! This tanning product has an agent that creates a shade that is suitable just for your skin tone. The time segments in which this can be applied allows for more control over the depth of the tan. One hour is a light tan, two hours is a medium golden tan, and three hours is a deep bronze tan. My tan typically lasts me 4-7 days. Rate: 9/10
3) St. Tropez Tanning Mitt- $8
The St. Tropez Tanning Mitt is a must have for applying any self-tanner that is a mousse.
4) Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion- $13
I have had the Aveeno moisturizing lotion for quite some time now. It is made with oatmeal and has clinical skin care benefits which is an added bonus.
5) Lush’s Body Butter- $13
The Body Butter I use is called Buffy. The bar lasted me about 8 days and left my skin feeling smooth and hydrated after each application. Rate: 7/10
6) Black Stockings Solid Body Tint- $12
I like this product from Lush Homemade Cosmetics. I liked the colour when I blended it in really well and it has a spicy smell to it. It is great to put on for a very last minute tan. There are a few things to be cautious about before applying: it is created for darker complexions and it is washable and may smear on clothing so be careful after you apply it! I would suggest putting it on after changing into your outfit for the night. Rate: 7/10
