Casper would be jealous of my skin.
Im not supposed to be this pale. My family has firmly medium skin. They also all have thick, dark hair and lush, full features.
Im the only one with skin so fair its practically transparent.
Needless to say, Im always looking for ways to look tanner without being forced to head to the beach. One, because the beach and I dont mix. Two, because its damn cold and I havent been on a tropical vacation in years.
Naturally, my journey takes me down the self tanner route. Personally, I love the simplicity of using a bottled tanner. Its easy to apply alongside my post-shower moisturizer and if done right, looks totally natural. Just wash your hands before leaving the house.
In the name of science, I recruited several co-workers to get their glow on with the latest and greatest.
Check out the before and afters and judge for yourself.
Scent: You couldnt smell it. I mean, youre also in the shower. It was a very watered-down version of what self tanner smells like.”
Application: “In order for the product to work, you need to turn off the shower completely. Then, you slather the product on your body and stand in the shower, naked, for three minutes. I had no idea when three minutes had gone by because I was naked in a shower with no access to a clock. So, I was forced to sing “Bad Blood” to myself in hopes that song was somehow exactly three minutes long.”
Look: Its a lot of work for little color payoff. Its great if you have really fair skin and are worried about looking overdone, but it didnt really show up on me.”
Application:“It’s a little intimidating at first, but once you put it on, the color blends into the skin as a beautiful natural tan color. The color it gives you is very natural and not orangey at all.”
Look: “Of all the self tanners I’ve tried, this one gives me the color that’s closest to the natural tan I get in the summer.”
Scent: “Didn’t have that strong of a smell, but it smelled pretty good! Kind of like coconut and vanilla.”
Application: “It was easy to apply, I only needed to apply it once and saw the effects. I saw more color on the second application. It came out of the bottle as a brown lotion and foamed white when applied.”
Look: “It gave a natural, non orange glow. I liked this one best!”
Scent: “I didn’t smell anything. Then again, I was super congested all week, so that’s not saying much.”
Application: “This went on as a totally clear gel, so it was a little hard to tell where I was applying. It also took a little while to dry down, so I didn’t know if I f*cked up until that morning (if I applied at night).”
Look: “I looooooved this. It didn’t appear patchy and gave me enough of a glow to make it look like I’m not pale as f*ck.”
Scent: “I didn’t smell anything — but again, I was congested.”
Application: “I applied this three times. The first time, I lathered on a ton because I was drunk and thought this would work like my night cream would. I woke up the next morning looking like an Oompa Loompa and had to wash and scrub it all off. The next two nights, I used a pea-sized amount over my face and it left just a bit of glow, which is way more manageable.”
Look: “My co-workers all said I look extra glowy, which is reason enough to add this into my skincare routine.”
