|why the random spray bottle, you ask? Read on...|
Some people raved about it in various reviews, so I decided to give it a try. I have notoriously pasty skin, if you need an example of my pasty legs check this out. Be forewarned, I'm practically an albino! You may in face be blinded.
So I boiled two cups of water, steeped five tea bags for 30 minutes and put it in a spray bottle (see above picture).
I sprayed myself down and let it air dry. TEN TIMES. That was labor intensive.
Here are the results of all my trouble:
1. My legs actually looked darker, and tan.
2. It did not come off on my white bed sheets or my clothes.
3. It was free.
1. It was really, really time consuming. And I have small kids! Time is like gold.
2. It was a little sticky.
3. It streaked.
4. The dye job was uneven (my knees were darker then the rest of my legs)
5. It wore off after a few hours.
6. When I showered it came off completely.
7. My bath tub was FILTHY. More wasted time cleaning it!
Verdict: I won't be doing this again. It took waaaaaaay too much time and energy that I could have spent doing something more productive! It's worth it for me to just go spend the $8 on a bottle of Jergans Natural Glow, thank you very much.
What about you all? Do any of you use self tanner? Any suggestions on getting a natural, non orange-y glow?
