Work It Out Wednesdays

I didn't realize it until I was going to bed, Oopsie. Forgive me?! 

My best friend told me this years ago, I do mean years like 9, "Tan fat looks better than white fat." I swear this has STUCK IN MY HEAD! I have auburn hair ,naturally, and freckles- geesh! I don't tan easily. I refuse to go to the tanning bed (been there, done that). I try to lay out, but sometimes I just don't have the time. I bought Jergens Natural Glow Express yesterday and I'm super excited about it. I just don't want to be streaky and orange. 

Natural Glow Express

Does anyone have advice on using it? Or know of any great natural looking self tanners? I'm in need of a little color by next wednesday! HELP!

  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'd love to follow each other. Please don't forget to follow me back:) Xxx

  2. haha thats so true! Im not sure.. im a naughty little girl so i just bake with sun oil =P

    best of luck! you will have to post pictures =)

    now following.

  3. i want to hear your feedback on this. i tan, but it takes FOREVER of laying out in the sun. keep me posted!

  4. I use this and my #1 advice is wash your hands after using it!! Or the insides of your fingers will be orange. Otherwise its WONDERFUL!

  5. never tried it, but i have heard good things about it.

  6. never tried this brand
    let me know how it works for you

    i tried the Hawaiian Tropic one
    works really good!

    make sure to wash your hands after applying love!


  7. Tan fat is DEFINITELY 100x better than white fat-- not that you are fat at all! I've tried this Jergens and had mild success. I didn't get as dark as I'd like but my faux tan came out even and non-orange. Make sure you exfoliate your knees, elbows and anywhere that might be a bit on the dryer side before using it! I chose to wear gloves while applying to my body just so my palms wouldn't turn super dark as well! Good luck!

  8. Being an adult is the scariest thing I've done so far. Now, I'm actually held accountable for the childish things I do, but my kids find it totally amusing.

    Love the name of your blog! :)

  9. you are an inspiration! I love how you blog like it's an open diary. Anddd you reminded me that I need to invest in tanning supplies before the Summer sun leaves us. Love your blog. xoxo, Plums and Pearls

  10. I've never tried this brand, but I've tried the nivea one, its ok, but it stained my clohtes. my friends always use St Tropez, its abit more expensive, but it is, FANTASTIC!


  11. Thanks, but it didn't seem to work. Wanna try again? Xxx

  12. Thanks so much guys for the advice- Ill definitely post pictures. :)

  14. My friend uses this she likes it, I've never tried it though. I have been wanting to try a spray tan by Sally Hansen but I am scared that it will not look natural :/

  15. I've never tried this on my hair dear, I love natural looks but it'll be nice on you I think ;)

  16. Just found your lovely blog! I am embrace the pale- I sure do :)

  17. I can get tanned easily too, and I look like I came from the North-Sweden or Norway lol, but honestly I don't really want to tan so bad.
    I hope this product works for you the way you want it! :D
