I had found this on Pinterest a few weeks ago…


I ordered the SunLabs tanner that she recommends and I did everything just like she directs you to on her website. I just tried it for the first time yesterday and I am amazed at how natural it looks. I really liked this tanner because it shows up right away, so you can see exactly where you already put it and where you still need to go over – no streaking! It has a very, very light scent but its not bad – it just kind of reminds me of a lotion. I worked out last night and nothing came off on my clothes and after 2 showers there doesn’t seem to be any fading.

I think Jergens Natural Glow (or whatever its called) works, but it takes FOREVER to show up on me.

The Victorias secret one is my FAVE. Never streaky and doesn’t smell disgusting!!! I love it! And I’ve used them all!

The only one I’ve ever liked is the St. Tropez gradual tanner

I’m super fair and use the Jergens Natural Glow every day.  It works really well.  If you want results a little more quickly, Jergens has a 3 day lotion that works really well also.

OP, I agree with above poster that SunLabs is the way to go. You can get a bottle for $18-19 or so on Amazon. It smells like a Tootsie Pop – way better than the regular self tanner smell.

Jergens moose is nice, I love it. Takes a few days of application but I find it’s the best.

Everone I know who uses it here in Florida uses Neutrogena sunless tanner.  If you use the lotion it builds up (i.e. you get darker over time) as you use it so it looks more natural.

I’ve been meaning to try the SunLabs for a few months now.  Maybe now that it’s getting warmer, I will be more motivated to order some.  


My go-to is Jergens Daily Natural Glow or whatever it is.  I prefer the foam (it dries faster!).  I have been using something new, with Hemp in it.  I cannot recall the name, but it isn’t too terrible for how cheap it was ($5 for a small bottle) – I was at Target the other day and they were out of Jergen’s (WAAAAAAAAAT?!).  It just feels like it takes forever to dry, but the color seems to build a little quicker than Jergen’s (like, 1 application vs two for me).
