Get Your Tan On

Get Your Tan On
With Memorial Day weekend upon us, the official start of summer just around the corner, and warm weather here to stay (fingers crossed!), I am ready to bust out the shorts, dresses, and tank tops.  But what I am NOT ready to put on parade, is my pasty winter skin.  And while you couldn’t pay me to step foot in a tanning bed, I do love the look of a nice bronze glow.  Over the years I have tried a lot of different products in order to achieve a natural looking faux tan, but have either hated the results, or the smell.  But a couple of years ago I discovered L’Oreal Sublime Glow lotion and I have never looked back.  It’s a fantastic product that I use year round, and can’t imagine using anything else.  And because I love the lotion so much, I have tried several of the other tanning and bronzing products in this line, but haven’t been super impressed.  That is until I recently tried the tanning towels.  And let me tell you, they are AH-mazing!!  They are super easy to apply, are relatively odorless, and I find when I use them in tandem with my lotion, I am able to achieve that beautiful, natural looking faux tan I have been trying forever to create.  Hallelujah!
So if you are looking to try a new tanning product, give these two a whirl.  I am pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!

FPF: Sublime Glow

Alright, moment of truth: everyone looks better with a tan. I hate to say it, but it’s true. Now I’m not talking a Jersey shore tan, but rather just a little bit of color to give your skin a healthy glow and put some color in those cheeks. But over the years, as we have become increasingly more aware of the extensive damage the sun causes, sunscreen is now a must and tanning beds are absolutely out of the question. So what is a gal to do during the long winter months to fend off that pasty white skin that will inevitably overtake all of us?

Unfortunately, the only option is a self-tanning product. Now this stuff can be messy, and smelly, and streaky, and leave your palms and nail beds bright orange if you aren’t careful. And in my opinion, most of the tanning products that I have tried are just too much of a hassle to even be worth it. But a couple of years ago I discovered L’Oreal Sublime Glow lotion, and this product is incredible. It is an actual lotion that enhances your natural skin tone leaving with you just a hint of a tan. It also has a bit of shimmer to it creating radiant looking skin that is never, ever orange or streaky. I use this product everyday, winter or summer, and really don’t think I could ever go without it. Plus, it smells great and doesn’t have that funky odor that most tanning lotions have.

L’Oreal Sublime Glow Lotion: available at CVS, and some other local retailers, but it can be really tough to find, so another good place to look is Amazon or eBay)

L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Tinted Tanning Lotion:  available at most grocery stores, CVS, and Walgreens

I really can’t say enough positive things about this lotion.  It is absolutely fantastic.  And when I am feeling like adding a little more color to my skin, I mix the Sublime Glow Lotion with the Sublime Bronze Tanner for just a bit more intensity.  I have to warn though that when using the Sublime Bronze alone, it can get a little streaky, and tend to rub off around the ankles after a good workout.  But when mixed with the lotion, it works perfectly.  So if you are looking to fend off that white winter skin, while giving yourself a healthy and radiant glow, then these are the products for you!  Let me know if you have any questions. 

Happy weekend everyone!
