I have made it no secret that I have a love for Jaclyn Hill. She’s drop-dead gorgeous, outgoing and happy, hardworking, and genuine. She’s worked hard to get where she is and looked glamorous while doing it. I have also made it no secret that I love self tanners since I am so naturally pale and don’t like sitting for hours out in the sun. She posted a video about her tanning routine a while ago but I never got around to actually trying out the product myself.
I had used mousse products before (styling for my hair and a mousse foundation- neither of which I liked) so I was cautious about this. Why stray from my tried and true Jergens? So while in the shower I exfoliated and shaved, then I applied a body butter to my ankles, knees, elbows, hands, and feet. I exfoliated my face and moisturized before I tried buffing this weird burgundy colored mousse on with a foundation brush. It looked weird and splotchy and I was immediately scared for the rest of my body. I applied several pumps of the mousse to my legs, torso, and arms. It would look streaky but I kept buffing with the mitt they gave me hoping I wasn’t messing everything up. My face still looked splotchy so I only kept it on for 30 minutes instead of two hours before rinsing it off.
The rest of my body looked dark. I threw on some sweats and watched an episode of Castle for an hour before rinsing the rest off my body. I woke up the next morning and couldn’t help but notice how tan and glowy my skin looked. People commented on how I looked like I had just gotten back from a tropical vacation. The best part is it didn’t come off more when I showered again. Jergens color only seems to last about a day or two before reapplication. LovingTan lasts for several days, so you would really only need to apply it about once a week to maintain and golden goddess glow.
The application process is really scary but the results are outstanding. Maybe I will make the switch from Jergens to LovingTan for good.
