Regardless if you are spending time in the sun or not, these products deliver sun-kissed skin, trip to the beach not necessary.

Here is a bit of information about the products:
Jergens Instant Sun Tanning Mousse

Tracy Murphy for Kate Upton~
“I used the Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil on Kate’s arms and legs, really blending it in for an even all over glow. I used a foundation brush and buffed it in around the collarbones, neck and décolletage. The result is stunning!!”
Quinn Murphy for Lily Aldridge~
"Before Lily was dressed I used the Copacabana Bronzing Glow Oil all over her body. Then I added the Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil to the places where the sun hits/highlight like the collar bone and center of the chest. The combination gave her that bronze glow that makes a red carpet!"
Emily Cheng for Yara Shahidi~
“Once Yara was fully dressed I used a large fluffy eyeshadow brush and applied the Copacabana Bronzing Glow Oil on all the high points like her shoulder, collar bone and arms. Then I used my hands to spread and blend.”
Dionne Wynn for Tiffany Haddish~
“I used the Copacabana Bronzing Glow Oil on Tiffany's jawline, face and forehead for a super glowy look!”

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

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, we finally have a little time for ourselves :) Sun Bum, Colormetrics and Wink Brow Bar have just the stuff to help you ring in the new year in style. Check out these tips and tricks on how to make yourself the pop on NYE.
Get glow that will last with Sun Bum Self-Tanning Towelettes (which are my very favorite sunless tanning products.)
These multi-tasking towelettes ensure a damage free experience in the sun by exfoliating, moisturizing and darkening skin all in one go!
Champagne isn’t the only thing that can pop this NYE when you add Streekers to your glam routine
Streekers instantly bonds liquid hue to your hair. The formula looks and acts just like permanent hair color, so you can brush your hair without dulling the shade or risking color flake-off.
Make your brows the envy of the party with a little help from the pros at Wink Brow Bar
“Girls and women prefer the fresh faced look, and brows make all the difference. A light thin or sparse brow can make you look messy, but tinting can change this. The process takes about 10 minutes where specific product is applied directly to the brows usually to make your brows a shade or two darker.” – Umbreen Sheikh, founder of Wink Brow Bar

Sally Hansen AIRBRUSH SUN® Instant Tanning Mousse is available in 2 shades: Medium & Dark
I love having a golden glow on my skin. If I was not sunbathing on my parents' trampoline (in my teen years) soaking up those dangerous UVA rays, I was always in a sunless tanning bed. Now that I know how terrible the sun is for my skin, I grab sunless tanning products instead. The only problem I have had with sunless tanning products is the odor as well as the streaks. I have always trusted and loved Sally Hansen products, so I decided to give their new Airbrush Sun tanning mousse a try. (My shade of choice is medium.)
I recently returned from a trip to Hawaii, where my oldest son got married on July 14th. My beautiful Hawaiian tan was flaking and fading, so I applied my Airbrush Sun Tanning mousse, and my golden glow was enhanced and beautified. The formula is light weight and not greasy. It dries very quickly. and that is great because I can dress again soon afterwards. I keep my hands and feet from getting stained by dipping a q-tip in petroleum jelly and rubbing it under my nails as well as on my ankles and knees. I went to bed that night, and awoke to a gorgeous, even tan. No streaks and no bad odors. I am in love!

Since we’re in the middle of summer (still can’t believe how fast it’s flying by) I wanted to share some safe tanning hacks from Sun Bum! These items are great if you haven’t had a chance to lay out as long as you wanted or haven’t been able to go to the beach at all this summer. Or, if you are like me, you want to extend the tan you do have! (My son got married last week in Hawaii, and I have a great tan!)
Sun Bum Sunless Tanning Towelette
About: Exfoliate, moisturize and achieve a golden glow all at once with this revolutionary and easy to use self-tanning towelette for the face and body. Contains the most effective ingredients like Black Walnut Leaf Extract but is also infused with a patented clear self-tanning formula that works with the proteins and amino acids in skin to produce a healthy, beachy glow.
How it works: Apply the Self Tanning Towelettes on your body and your face for a flawless, sun-free tan.
I used these handy towelettes from my face to my feet before I ever got on that plane. Otherwise, I would have looked ghastly white from the moment I put on my swim suit. Instead I had a gorgeous natural looking tan that was only enhanced by the sun.
Sun Bum Natural Browning Lotion
About: This product will help you get the deep, dark golden glow you want without the risks associated with extended sun exposure. Infused with some of the best ingredients from around the world like Kukui Nut Oil and Kona Coffee Plant Extract, the formula is completely vegan, gluten free, and paraben free, with an amazing scent as well!
How it works: Apply an SPF 15 (like Sun Bum SPF 15 Original Spray Sunscreen) or higher sunscreen 10 minutes before applying the Natural Browning Lotion.
I used this tropical scented browning lotion at the beach in Hawaii. I applied it after slathering myself with my sunscreen. It really helped to give my skin that golden glow that I love.
