Product Review: A Self-Tanner For Us Pale Girls?
This $50+ formula claims to be the new fair-skinned go-to, but is it really just as Jerseylicious as the rest?
So on the rare occasion that I want a tan, I'll go to a pro for a spray-tan. But even the light formulas are just too, well, "Jersey Shore.".
But a cute new white dress calls for drastic measures. I grabbed a bottle of Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse in Fair, $54 (!), and a tanning mitt and rubbed it all over my legs before bed. It's a foam consistency, it went on easily, and it didn't stink.
The next morning, I showered, got dressed, and completely forgot about the self-tanner. Around lunchtime, I finally noticed my legs. They weren't tan per se, but they had just enough glow to make them, well, less albino than my dress -- and there wasn't a steak in sight.
Days later, I'm still kind of glowy and feeling rather pleased with myself. What's your go-to tanner? Share in the comments below.
