People are Complimenting my [faux] Tan!

Sadly, my long-awaited Florida vacation was spent on the couch, sick, so I didn't get to soak up the sun.  But I wasn't going to let it get me (too) down - so I've been applying a gradual self tanner and I've received a lot of compliments on my tan!  So I thought I would share my fav gradual tanner with you!

Its Nivea Sun-Kissed Radiant Skin lotion.  A gradual tanner provides a much more natural tan because it build slowly, whereas a self-tanner will darken you in one application.

I've tried several gradual tanners (Jergens was awful smelling, L'Oreal Sublime Bronze was nice, Victoria's Self Tanner worked great but smelled too strong) and the Nivea was the hands-down winner. 

It had the least amount of smell, and I thought the color was the most natural, even though I chose the medium (and I am obviously fair-skinned).

It retails for under $10 and you can find it at drug stores and grocery stores - and after 3 applications (full body application every other day) I got quite the glow!

Safe Sun is easy and healthy!  Try it!!
