Awhile ago I blogged about the dangers of tanning beds. Having just come back from vacay in the U.S. Virgin Islands tanned...I naturally want to try to keep the tan as long as possible, while not stepping foot in a tanning bed. I'll admit it, the temptation is definitely there, especially since they have one at my gym.
However, one of my best friends recently saw another one of my best friends (I live 2 hours away) and said she keep her tan (since she went to the Dominican Republic earlier in the month) by using Jergens Natural Glow Firming Medium Tanning Lotion. I must say, I have used my fair share of self tanners and I have not had the best experience so I usually try to stay clear for anything other than Mystic Tan.
In desperate attempts I gave in and bought the Jergens Natural Glow lotion and figured I may as well try it. Well, I have been using it now for 5 days and I LOVE it. My tan has not faded since I used this lotion- it doesn't streak and doesn't look orange either. It has a bit of a tanning lotion smell, but it is very light.
If you need a good alternative for a tan, try using this lotion. PLUS- it is a firming lotion- which is always a plus ;) I use in the mornings and rub it in circular motions into my feet, legs, chest, arms and the part of my back I can reach.
It is about $8 at any drugstore, Target/Wal-Mart.
