We don’t often talk about self-tanner on Product Girl. We more or less embrace our pale-ness. But I had to go and get myself a farmer’s tan while in Florida last week and it is none too cute if you’re planning on exposing your bare shoulders. Which I am planning to do this weekend with a one-shouldered dress.
To back up just a moment, before it was a farmer’s tan it was a sunburn. I scold people all the time for not using sunscreen, so I’m a little embarrassed that it happened.
Exhibit A: The farmer’s burn
It was really painful for a few days, which is enough of a reminder to never ever go without the SPF again. Regardless of my recklessness, I needed to rectify the farmer’s tan. I picked up L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes and they’ve been slowly evening out my skin tone. I’ve been using them at night because I don’t like to sit all day with the scent. They work really well without turning me orange or streaky. I’ve even been using them semi-unevenly since my main concern is to remove the white strip along my right shoulder, and it has been foolproof.
Now that I’m dabbling in the self-tanner, would love to know what everyone’s favorites are? I have to admit, being tan in the winter is exciting.
