L.A. tricked me last week! The weather went all crazy (it was about 100 degrees) and fooled me into thinking it was summer. When the temperature gets high I get all excited and I start craving fun, the sun, skimpy clothes, and a rockin’ tan.
Fast forward to this weekend where it got to about, oh, 70 degrees. That isn’t summer, it’s spring because DUH it is spring and during the spring you don’t really get a natural tan. So I took a peek into my beauty drawer to see what I had.
Part of my Peroni fashion week survival kit was a Solerra tanning mitt. I decided to give it a whirl. You simply slip on this plastic lined mitt and go to town. It was pretty awesome because the color looks natural and you don’t end up getting that orange palm syndrome like you do with other tanners.
After I finished mitting myself I moisturized with Jergens Natural Glow lotion — I love that stuff! I am sure you have heard about it a zillion times but basically it is lotion that gradually gives you a tan. Great stuff and cheap too.
The whole tanning duo I made up worked out well. I think my tan looks pretty darn hot. Problem is now I am hooked and I used up my one mitt. So I headed out to find more sunless tanning fun …
The tanning product I picked up at Target (the vicious cycle continues) to stand in for my mitt was Jergens Natural Glow Express. It is supposed to be just like the regular natural glow lotion except this one tans you in 3 days. I am going to test it out along with my normal natural glow lotion to see if I can get a sexy fake tan in 3 days. I will be sure to let you know how it performed.
