I am headed to Mexico for vacation in a few weeks and I’m dreading vacation pics of me with my skin GLOWING white! I am really pale, and my legs are like, ridiculously white. I’m going to be in a bathing suit a lot and I’d at least like to tan up my legs a bit. I have tried a ton of sunless tanners over the years but I haven’t been super impressed by any of them.
Has anyone tried an at-home sunless tanner that works really well and that they like? My main concerns are that it is easy/fast, and not orange or streaky.

Neutrogena Micro Mist spray! I posted something like this once, and that was the recommendation I got. I tried it and it was perfect. It didn’t look fake, and it was really easy to apply. I had ONE blotch on my wrist, but that was totally my fault–I was watching the SYTYCD finale and absentmindedly scratched my wrist. lol

Fake Bake! I have tried ALL the other tanners and it’s the best by far. I use the lotion kind (not the spray kind) and my only tricks are to put lotion on my face, elbows, hands, knees, and feet/toes just before putting it on. If I don’t lotion my face first I feel like the tanner is a little too dark for my face so the lotion helps tone it down a bit. It’s definitely more pricey than some of the other self-tanners but I think it’s worth it because I get a darker, more natural-looking, and longer lasting tan than anything else has given me. I tried Neutrogena Micro Mist again the other day because I thought it would be easy to do my hands and feet with a mist rather than a lotion and a few days later my feet were so orangey and blotchy. I scrubbed and scrubbed and it took over a week for my feet to look norman again. Everyone is different though so you might have to try a few to find what works best for you and what looks the most natural on you.

St. Tropez. I have converted 4 friends that love this stuff. I was on the hunt for a great self tanner for like 2 years and this is by far the best ever. I promise you wont regret it!

I’m a fan of the fake bake lotion, too! I’m very fair and it looks really good and natural on my skin.
