I fell in love with a sunless tanner.

I have very pale skin and I love looking tan but after years of mindlessly laying out in the sun to achieve the perfect tan (which always faded within a few weeks) I’m trying to tan smarter. I have been a fan of sunless tanners since they first hit the scene in my high school days. When I first started using them I remember how awful they smelled, it took forever to dry and it would transfer onto light colored clothing.

Sunless tanners have come a long way since then and I just found two great new sunless tanners that smell great, are reasonably priced and best of all work!

Neutrogena Sunless Tanning Spray Micro Mist

Ultra-light, fine mist goes on even and works at any angle

* Medium – 2 shades darker than your skin tone
* Airbrush
* No Rub Application

Neutrogena® MicroMist™ Tanning applies like an airbrush spray for hands-free application. The mist is so light and fine, and the coverage so even, there’s no need to rub. One-touch continuous spray works at any angle to tan hard-to-reach places – even your back. Goes on fast and dries in less than 5 minutes, so you can shower, dress and go.

* Oil-free, Alcohol-Free
* Non-comedogenic – won’t clog pores
* Made in U.S.A.

To ensure an even application make sure you exfoliate first and spray in even back and forth motion about 10 inches from your skin. This is my favorite sunless tanner, it’s really easy to apply and leaves my skin the perfect golden shade without a spot or streak in sight.

$10.99 Neutrogena Sunless Tanning Spray Micro Mist

Neutrogena Sun Fresh Foam Fair/Medium

Sheer Summer Color

Fresh citrus scented lotion for a sheer, sun-kissed glow. Fresh Clean Feel.

Sun Fresh™ Sheer Summer Color is a fresh new approach to a natural-looking tan. The breakthrough, ultra-light formula infuses skin with sheer, natural-looking color, then seals it in with skin-silkening hydration.

The clean citrus scent with notes of grapefruit and nectarine goes on fresh and stays fresh all day.

* Dries in 5 minutes
* Oil-Free
* Non-comedogenic, won’t clog pores.

This is the perfect product if you want a subtle glow with a hint of color to even out your skin. It’s a lot milder than most sunless tanners and you don’t have to worry about the oompa loompa effect. One of my favorite things about the sun fresh foam was the grapefruit and nectarine scent, it left my skin smelling and feeling really soft and fresh.

A must have for this summer!

I’m terrible at buying new razors. I’ll refill the blade, but I think I’ve had the same razor for like 4 years.  I’ve always used Venus – and I’ve stuck with the same ol’ razor for years.  I went to the store to buy new blades for it over the weekend, and found the stinking things cost like $10!  I decided instead of buying refill blades, I would actually spring for a new razor entirely, so I picked up the Venus Embrace razor.

Only NEW Venus Embrace has 5 blades surrounded by a Protective Ribbon of moisture that effortlessly smoothes the glide. As you shave, each blade individually adjusts to hug your curves. Embrace your inner goddess with Venus Embrace.

I can’t believe how amazing this product is!  The razor is absolutely amazing!  It’s the closest shave I’ve had in a while, and my skin felt amazing afterwards.  I was totally impressed with how smooth my legs were…it’s amazing what a new razor will do! :)

You guys gotta go pick one up – you won’t be disappointed! I think I spent like $9.00 at Target, I’m sure you can find it at most stores near you!
