  • LORAC TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer

    This product was a small step up form Lorac’s Gradual Self Tanner, but it still wasn’t my favorite. I found the color to be too “fake” looking for me. I ended up looking a very dark shade of orange. Not exactly the natural look I was going for. I was looking (and still am) for a good bronzer to use all over my body to give me a natural looking bronze glow. This one definitely didn’t live up to my expectations. The smell is also kind of hard to get over. It smells like baby powder to me, and it is VERY strong. The good thing is that it’s not as messy as Lorac’s gradual self tanner, and it is way easier to apply. There was also a very noticeable shimmer/glittery look to this product that I didn’t like either. Like I said, I was going for a natural look, and this product just didn’t cut it.

  • Sun Laboratories Dark Sunsation Self Tanning Lotion

    After seeing all the positive reviews on YT for this self tanner, I decided to give it a try. Only later did I find out that all those "reviews" are sponsored by the company (and therefore biased)! Anyway, I had a heck of a time actually getting the company to send me my order. I never received a confirmation email. Bottom line, I had to contact them several times just to get my order sent to me. Once I did receive it, I'd say the end result was mediocre at best. Applying this product was an absolute nightmare. It is very thick and very dark. Blending it in took FOREVER. And once it was done, it got on everything as it was drying. My towels, sheets, and clothes looked like a mess. I put this on before going to bed and when I woke up the next morning, the color was definitely kind of orange. It was also a little streaky (which I attribute to the difficulty in applying this self tanner). The one, and maybe only, thing I liked about this product was the smell. It has an almond-cherry smell that I actually like quite a bit. But everything else about my experience with this self tanner was negative. The company could definitely stand to improve their customer service!

  • Clinique Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion

    I'm a big fan of Clinique Self Sun. It gives me a really nice, bronze color and actually smells good. It lasts for about 4-5 days and doesn't "streak" off like many other self tanning products. And for less than $25, it's tough to beat this tanner :)

  • Beautisol Summer Glow

    Didn't Work For Me

    This product gets a lot of hype, but it didn't work very well for me. During application, it comes out very thick and messy. I had a difficult time blending it in and making it look not ridiculous. It takes awhile to dry but that's not uncommon for many self tanning lotions. Because it's tinted, you can expect it to get all over your clothes and sheets until you shower. The color I got from this was just ok. My biggest complaint is it seemed to darken moles and skin discolorations. Not all self tanners do that. The one thing I really liked about this product was the smell. They actually do a pretty good job of masking that 'DHA smell' that many self tanners have. Overall I wasn't that impressed with Beautisol, especially considering it's sky-high price!
