Tanning Mishap? Oooooh Yeah, I’ve Been There…

by | Feb 27, 2013 | Sponsored

I didn’t clear the 80’s until I turned 18. Read: I KNOW ALL ABOUT TANNING MISHAPS.

Fortunately, my mishaps (yes, PLURAL… because I am a slow learner and perhaps even have a leeeteele touch of optimism in this worldly-wise heart) never quite matched the mishap of THAT ONE GIRL.

Ladies, we either KNOW her or WERE her.

You know… The girl who showed up to school with skin as orange as a carrot… because self-tanners in the 80’s did that.

I learned a valuable lesson about self-tanning that day… the day THAT ONE GIRL came to school looking a few shades darker than the favorite snack of bunnies.

However, despite my best intentions, vanity would get to me too. Occasionally I’d get a little eager, see the inevitable streaks.

People don’t have orange streaks. Tigers do. Do they?

Or how about REALLY dark knee caps? Or stained clothing? Clothing doesn’t “tan” well. 

A couple years back, I discovered the Jergens line of self-tanner. It eliminated these issues for me, so it’s easy to share about Jergens Natural Glow moisturizers line today.

It is a line of self-tanners that grow your tan over a period of time… giving you the chance to build your tan over days… not overnight. Read: no overnight carrot skin for you! Hard lines aren’t an issue because after a few applications, chances are you’ve caught that *one spot* you missed the first time. Apply daily until you achieve the tone you want, then apply once or twice a week to maintain that tone.

Awesome, right?

I’ll be using several of the Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizers over the next 3 months. Be sure to come back and check on my progress! I’ve been using it for about a week and have built a nice golden tone to take with me on a work trip to Miami! This girl from the Pacific NorthWET is READY for shorts in February! And Jergens is going to help me keep that signature sun-kissed Miami look when I get back!


NEW Jergens® Natural Glow Moisturizer provides the same great, natural-looking color but without the sunless tanner odor!
