So, let me just get to this product:
Jergens Natural Glow - Medium
It is a gradual tanner and it says that it will give you a tan within one week! Yes, so you would apply this as much as you want and the frequency of your application is proportional to the rate of your tan. WOW - that was a lot of science talk there... got that out of my system. So for me, I wanted quick results (ha ha, I can really impatient sometimes), I would apply this after the shower and before school. I would say this did give me a tan after a week of doing so and it wasn't a bad tan either.
I've seen tans that are ORANGE and thankfully this wasn't that bad. However, on my skin, I do detect a tint of orange... which I don't really appreciate. But it wasn't so noticeable for other people - it was only just me since I do observe my legs a lot during that time.
I mean, I think as far as a tanner go - this is pretty decent. I would definitely recommend this to you...
NOW - I stopped using it when I decided that I can't really even out my skin tone with this and thus, YES you guessed it, the gradual fading began! It's not that bad but it is kinda gross... sometimes. I do notice part of my legs would have PATCHES of the tanner fading. So it'll be my leg and then some parts will be lighter just because the tanner is being rubbed off....
So... BE CAREFUL with this!!! Although - disclaimer - this was my first time using a sunless tanner so I might've made some beginners mistake or something.
I use this now just as a moisturizer. I do detect a bit of shimmer (nothing crazy... but there are particles in here) in this so it is kinda nice to put this on if I do decide to show off my legs. I don't use this everyday but I have sorta been using it again and perhaps that might be why my legs are sorta tan. So I think I recommend using it really gradually - not twice a day like me... and you'll have a really nice and natural look.
** Oh and my legs have gotten a lot better. It still has scars and discoloration but after my ordeal, I don't really care. As long as they are healthy I am happy. And I have gained back my confidence in showing my legs in public again. I mean, I went to Hawaii for goodness sakes! I had to wear a bathing suit.
Now, here is the really really really weird thing about this lotion. THE SMELL - okay here's the story:
So I'd put this on every night before I go to bed for a few weeks during couple of summers ago. One night, I was too lazy to put it on and I got in bed and I thought... what am I missing??? Oh the lotion! I actually think the smell is really nice and comforting... a great smell before bed. WEIRD huh....
So yeah, I don't know if this was a good review or not. I would really recommend you to try this out if you are curious - not too bad $7-9. You do get results and I don't think they're horrible results either.
Do you have any summer must-haves that you recommend for me??
