Self Tanning Made Easy: JERGENS® Natural Glow®

I started my self-tanning journey about 4 years ago when I decided that I would no longer be using tanning beds to get a sun kissed glow. Since then, I have stuck with self tanning religiously. However, one of the first brands I used in middle and high school was Jergens.

Right around spring time my mom would pull out her JERGENS® Natural Glow® Daily Moisturizer to start working on a sun kissed look. I remember trying it for the first time when I had a school dance. It was easy and didn't require much effort which is what we liked!

Fast forward 10 years and I'm now a self-proclaimed sunless tanning queen. Jergens has really bumped up their sunless tanning line since those days and I'm here to share a couple with you.

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Instant Sun® Sunless Tanning Mousse
I was really glad to see that JERGENS® now has an instant color self-tanning product now. The sunless tanner is in mousse form which I prefer and dries within 60 seconds! I really love that aspect because we don't always have a full 8+ hours to wait for a sunless tanning product to develop.

The Instant Sun Tanning Mousse can also be layered each day for a more intense look. I find that using one layer for two days gives me the exact color I like. This is an excellent self tanner for all skin tones but especially fair and light (in my opinion). The finish is natural and not too dark.

The color lasts up to 7-10 days when you keep layering every couple of days. I like to completely scrub off on the 4th day and start a new coat!

My 5 Minute Self Tanning Routine:

1. Pump 1 full pump of JERGENS Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse onto a self tanning mitt.

2. Rub thoroughly onto arms, chest, neck, and legs.

3. Pump half a pump of the Instant Sun Tanning Mousse onto your mitt and rub into hands and feet lightly.

4. Let product dry for 60 seconds and you're done!

JERGENS® Natural Glow® FACE Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20
I use the gradual glow facial moisturizer at night before bed and in the mornings before applying my makeup. It has SPF 20 for added protection and gives your face a sun kissed tint after about 3 days of use.

The scent is pleasant and the formula is actually very hydrating on my dry skin. I never like my face to be lighter than my body so it's a nice addition to the instant sunless tanner!
You can find the full JERGENS® Natural Glow® line at Walmart in the standard body lotion and care aisle. Make sure to check your boxes carefully, I had a $3 off any 2 full size JERGENS® Natural Glow® Products coupon attached to mine!

Do you prefer a gradual self-tanner or an instant one? Let me know your thoughs! As always, I love to hear your feedback!
