    The only time I tried to self-tan it was a disaster. I didn’t know about exfoliating so I just shaved my legs and thought that would be enough. I ended up with orange stripes. I wore pants for a long time after. Things have definitely improved lately though.

      I know the feeling! There’s definitely a learning curve with sunless tanning, and I still make mistakes here and there. I need to try tanning with a synthetic kabuki brush, I heard that makes application super easy.

    Love these recommendations! I’m always looking for safer ways to have that sun kissed glow! Especially being from the Midwest in the brutal winters. Our skin is too important and precious to damage!

    It’s been a while since I’ve used sunless tanning (the one time I did try it, the lotion smelled so bad that I couldn’t stick with it) but I may have to give some of these a try!

      I know that gross tanning smell! It can be so off-putting and not at all practical if you have stuff to do. Try the Purity Water, it smells like tropical heaven.

    I love the Jergens Tanning line, I have every single one!!! One thing I do need is a sponge or mitt to apply it! Thank you for your suggestions, this is super helpful!!!
