The VIP (Very Impressive Product) Pick of the Week #14

Posted 05/05/11 at 04:14PM by Audrey Fine

The Product: Olay Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion

The Price: $8.99

The Promise: "Moisturize skin and gradually enhance its color to enjoy a beautiful sun-kissed glow all year round."

The Real Deal: Cards on the table: I spent way too many years lying in the sun. Oh, who am I kidding? I still lie in the sun more than I should. Can't help it. I just like being tan, sue me. But, yes, I know that it's bad and that I need to stop. And, I have to say that this clever self-tanner is making it a little easier to wean myself off the harmful rays. As a general rule, I abhor the whole faux glow thing. I don't like the way it smells and being orange is not a look I covet (sorry Lindsay). That's why I like this Olay Quench. It's not only a really good moisturizer but the "tan" is gradual and, heavens to Betsy, it actually smells good.

The Upshot: If getting a safer tan can be this easy (and pleasant smelling) I'm willing to keep trying. So far I'm very happy with the color and the hydration Olay Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion delivers.

    I'm going out to buy this tomorrow. I was just discussing self tanners this morning with my friend. The one I currently use is very noticeable in the pores on my legs. It drives me crazy! Can't wait to try this one!

    I am so pale my skin absolutely refuses to tan or even burn, for that matter. LOL I also can't stand the smell of most self tanners or the funky color they produce (righ there with you, Audrey!). This one from Olay sounds excellent and I think I'll give it a try. I have great luck with Olay products usually.
