With the summer months now upon us, most of us are longing for that radiant, summer tan. With an abundance of self-tanner products on the market, all claiming to work magically, which one is the true best?
As with many people, I have a limited income to spend on skin products such as these. This led to to try and found which self-tanner was the best.
I began my search with the Jergens Natural Glow Express in Medium. I always exfoliated properly and still ended up with orange, although there were no streaks.
Since the Jergens was out of the picture, I then tried the Rodial Brazilian Tan Light. The colour was alright, but on the second application, it looked orangey once again.
Then after reading many good reviews about the Hawaiian Tropic Island Radiance Self-Tanner, I decided to try it. I practicially scoured the entire surrounding area for this product and couldn't find it.....anywhere!
I went to many grocery markets, pharmacies, and beauty supply stores...no one had it!
So I searched the internet for it and I found it at drugstore.com. It was only $.8.99, which is pretty affordable for a self-tanner. I recieved it a few days later and tried it out. As always, I exfoliated before. It made my legs a beautfiul shade of tan. Not a hint of orange! But the one bad thing, there was a fairly good amount of streaks. But I mixed half & half self-tanner with some regular lotion and applied it to my arms and got a great, streak-free result. But it wasn't as dark as it would be if I used just the self-tanner.
Overall, I would give it a 7 out of 10. If mixed with a little bit of regular lotion, I got a much better result, so then a 8.5 out of 10!!!
