Thread: New recommendations for self-tanners?

  1. #1

    New recommendations for self-tanners?

    I did a search first, but the threads are all more than four years old, and I figure there must be some new products on the market. We're heading to the beach in a few weeks, and I've long ago given up on tanning, but I would like something to both tone down the winter white as well as even out some places where I do get a little color despite sunscreen.

    So what are you using this summer?

    There was a reco here for Paula Begoun products. I'm really happy with the self tanner. It's not orange on me and has very little smell. I have people ask all the time how I got so tan so it must look alright. Here is a link to the website.

    You can't drink rum on the beach all day if you don't start in the morning.

    I would second that. I have used her products for years and swear by them!

    I use and like her products as well. I have never tried her self tanner. Must do that!

    I like the Jergens self tanners.

    I use some of her products too, based on recommendations from this board. But after a few months of use they start to irritate my skin and make it red, so then I have to stop for six months or so. I'll look into the self-tanner.

    Kima, I've had good luck with the Jergens too, and I like that it is a gradual color, so that I don't have an orange/streaky mess. But I can't stand the smell of it!

    I've started using Nivea self tanner. I found Dove too streaky & Jergens too smelly. Nivea is really, really light toned, but that's OK with me. I actually don't want to look tan, per se, but just now scary bright Casper!

    L'Oreal Sublime Bronze is my favorite after trying several. It is a spray, so goes on very evenly, and dries quickly. Several friends have asked me what I use because it looks so natural.

    Can't you just eat what I put in front of you? Do you have to know what it is?

    It think I saw on the tube last year that they had changed the fragrance...
