Regardless if you are spending time in the sun or not, these products deliver sun-kissed skin, trip to the beach not necessary. I am headed to the beaches of sunny Florida next week, and I am as pale as a ghost. I know that I will quickly achieve some color when I get out in the sun, but until then, I am counting on my Jergens Natural Glow products to help me to make that transition.
Here is a bit of information about the products:
Jergens Instant Sun Tanning Mousse
I love this lightweight formula instant tanning mousse because it simply works very well. In fact, it works as well or even better than the more expensive brands! I am able to achieve a natural looking all-over glow without any streaking, odor or fake orange color.

Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer (in fair to medium)

Red Carpet Ready Skin with MineTan
This weekend, on the Emmys red carpet, we will see beauty looks we will want to copy immediately – including their picture-perfect glowing skin.
With MineTan, you too can get the flawless, skin finish the A-list crowd is known for.
MineTan Violet Self Tan Foam ($34.95)
Inspired by the exotic European sun, the mix of violet and dark brown bronzers leaves the skin with a color finish that captures deep olive skin tones. It works with tan extending multi-vitamins and oils to moisturize the skin and deliver the quintessential glow in an instant, that continues to develop into a rich, deep finish without the fake tan smell.
**To achieve the beautiful, streak-free self-tan, apply foam with Bronze On Applicator Mitt ($7.99), quick and easy to use. Plus, it also works as a barrier to protect your hands from any unwanted staining.
QUENCH THE SKIN YOU’RE IN
Summer can take a toll on the skin. Long, hot days spent lounging around the pool, air conditioned homes and tanning can zap the moisture from one’s body fast. Without proper hydration, the skin can’t keep its golden hue for long. When all these factors come together, quench the skin you’re in with a moisturizer by NORVELL, for the key to a lasting tan.
Skin Repairing Body Butter - The ultimate smooth operator! This advanced repair cream provides intense moisture to revitalize dull, dry skin. Delivering immediate and long lasting results, Skin Repairing BODY BUTTER uses a non-greasy, ultra rich formulation to maintain moisture levels after self-tanning. Soft and smooth is the ideal canvas for sunless.
Hydrofirm Post Sunless Moisturizing Spray - This lightweight, hydro-rich mist immediately boosts the skin’s self-tanning results while elevating moisture levels. Specifically designed to instantly smooth and firm without streaking a sunless tan, Post Sunless HYDROFIRM creates dewy, luminous skin.
NORVELL is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and other things that are not so kind to skin. As with all NORVELL products, it is gluten free and vegan as well.
If you are like me, you want to hold onto your summer tan. I hate it when my tan fades. I was very happy when I discovered that my tan could last as long as I want it to, using these products. I use them after my shower every evening.
While my skin is still damp, (after lightly towel-drying) I spray my skin from my shoulders down to my feet with Hydrofirm Post Sunless Moisturizing Spray. To be perfectly honest, I had no idea that this product contained any sunless tanning ingredients. Imagine my delight when after a few uses, I developed a beautiful completely natural looking tan. This really took me by surprise because I thought this fabulous spray was only a moisturizer. I was so amazed at how perfect my tan looked without any streaking at all! It does not have an odor, and did not stain my clothing or my bedding. I was utterly in awe. My husband even complimented me on my flawlessly tan legs. I absolutely love Hydrofirm Post Sunless Moisturizing Spray!
As for the Body Butter, I use it after my nightly shower on the nights that I do not use the spray. It helps to keep my skin hydrated, which helps to keep both my sunless tan as well as my natural tan looking fresh and beautiful. It is so rich and creamy, but without a greasy, heavy feel. It smells nice and fresh, too.
Hydrofirm and Body Butter are available at specialty beauty salons, spas, tanning salons and online. For further information, please visit www.NorvellSunless.com

My thoughts: Now that the weather is warming up, it is time to show a little skin. Of course, my skin is rather pale after a long winter of keeping it under wraps. Laying out in the sun in a no-no, and tanning beds are out of the question. (I have already caused some pretty hefty damage to my skin from my sun-worshipping/ tanning-bed-abusing days of my youth. No more!
I usually hate applying sunless tanning products because I always end up streaky and smelly. My hands are usually a disgusting shade of orange because I can never get all of the product off of them no matter how much I wash them afterward. The Precision Mitt by Norvell has definitely changed my mind about the perils of using sunless tanning products!
After my shower (in which I had used an all-over body exfoliator) I dried off with a towel. I slipped my Precision Mitt onto my hand and was very happy to see that is is lined with plastic so my hands will not have to touch the solution. I massaged the mitt all over my skin from my head to my toes. It glided on very easily, with a silky smooth finish. The product had a cooling effect to it and it had a very pleasant fragrance.
While the product dried on my skin, I brushed my teeth and then got dressed. I went to bed and in the morning, my skin had a lovely, natural and glowing tan. There was nothing streaky or orange about it. Even my face and neck looked tan and gorgeous. My hands were stain free!
This beautiful glow lasted me for about a week before it started to fade. I really love the the Precision Mitt by Norvell because it took the scary part out of sunless tanning application for me. I felt sexy, beachy, healthy and alive!

Just because winter is here, it is never an excuse to feel pale and drab! It is possible to have a healthy winter glow and aid dry winter skin all in one step! Fake Bake has one of the broadest product ranges on the market and tons of self-tanners designed for all seasons.
Here are some of my favorite tanners that do so much more than meets the eye:
Fake Bake Tanning Body Butter allows you to build a beautiful tan using the softest Shea Butter ingredients available. It¹s light enough to use daily to build on top of the tan you already have. It can also be used as your daily moisturizer with its lightweight texture offering a velvety softness to skin while providing a sheer bronze color! Tanning Body Butter retails for $20.99.
I use this amazing body butter once a week in the winter. It keeps my skin ultra hydrated as well as gives me a hint of color that I need in the winter. I mean, it is true that I do not show much skin in the winter, but I don't want to look sickly and white when my husband happens to glance upon me now and then.
Fair is a self-tanning lotion for fair skin. Builds a gradual tan over time. Fake Bake Fair Self-Tan Lotion has been specially formulated for people with fair complexions. The easy glide formula and subtle "show where it goes" cosmetic color guide enables even the most inexperienced self-tanner to apply a self-tan with ease and confidence. Fair retails for $29.95.
I love to use Fair on my arms quite often during the winter because they are the only skin that shows. I don't want to look too dark since I am naturally a fair-skinned person.
For those who wish to add some bronze the face, our Platinum Face with cell renewal and Apple Stem Cell is amazing all year round! Platinum Face is moisturizing, contains effective anti-aging ingredients and delivers the signature Fake Bake golden glow J. Platinum Face retails for $29.95
Platinum Face is honestly the best facial sunless tanning product I have ever tried! It is non- greasy and absorbs beautifully! I usually only use this once a week for a very lovely glow.
Amplify is one of Fake Bake's newest products.
Boost - Containing an active plant based agent that is proven to increase the skins melanin production, this can be applied pre sun exposure. Skin will tan quicker, deeper and last longer. An essential whether you are home or away.
Intensify - Contains gradual tanners that give skin a rich golden glow. Apply daily to create long lasting and deeper results; this streak free formulation will give 'that glow" we all long for and extend the life of your natural tan.
Perfects - Luxuriously creamy but surprisingly light, this works to hydrate the skin leaving a skin perfecting veil that blurs minor imperfections and creates an even, youthful canvas. $24.00.
I love Amplify! I use it on my legs when I don't feel like wearing tights or nylons. I am not kidding, it makes my legs look sexy and flawless. It does not streak and it gives my legs just enough color to make them look natural and healthy.

I love to look tan! Naturally tan, that is. Gone, however, are the days when I would lay out in the sun on our trampoline soaking up those dangerous UVA rays as well as UVB rays. You will never find me anywhere near a tanning bed, either. I am so glad I stayed away from those in my youth, too, because I have no wrinkles to show for it, which is a great thing, but I still do love a glow.
I had tried every self tanning product on the market only to experience huge disappointment, orange streaks and stained hands. I was never able to blend the color evenly, no matter how hard I tried, until now.
I had the opportunity to sample what I consider to be the greatest sunless tanning product I have ever used! It is Fake Bake's New Flawless Self-Tanning Liquid with Mitt.
