Get Ready For Summer – The Best Faux Tanner


Consideration was provided by Jergens.

With summer well and truly upon us, it’s time to wear our favorite skirts, pretty dresses, cute shorts and swimwear. Unfortunately, I wasn’t born with a naturally bronzed complexion and I definitely want to protect my skin from the harmful effects of the sun… so what’s a girl to do? I’ve been a devout faux tanner for around twelve years now. There’s nothing quite like a golden glow to make you feel fabulous! You feel free to go anywhere and wear anything, because, let’s face it – everything goes better with a tan.

My friends are always asking me about tanning, everything from how to get an even application, which products are best, how to exfoliate and prep your skin and how to make a tan last longer and fade evenly. Recently, I’ve been using the Jergens® Natural Glow® Sunless Tanning Collection and have been so impressed with this affordable and effective range!

Summer Beauty Jergens Natural Glow Tan Extender Review

The products in my summer beauty repertoire are the Color Primer In-Shower Scrub (a must for even application and longer lasting results), the Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse and to make all this bronzed goodness last longer, the Tan Extender Daily Moisturizer is amazing!

Over the years I have tried many products and I’m super particular about what I like… I have to say, the Jergens® Natural Glow® collection really gives such a beautifully natural, even and consistent result (no one suits oompa-loompa orange!).

If you’re new to tanning, or want to gradually build and maintain a permanent golden glow, the Tan Extender is a brilliant option. It won’t give you an instant tan like the Sunless Tanning Mouse, however it can be used instead of your daily moisturizer and over a few days of use, you can build up to your desired color. Once you reach your optimal bronze, easily maintain it by applying the Tan Extender every second or third day as required.

Summer Beauty Jergens Natural Glow Tan Extender Review

A major plus in my opinion is that there’s also no down time, the products dry in under a minute (so you can get dressed and go enjoy the day, or sleep easy knowing you won’t wake up to bronzed sheets!).

Don’t hide your legs in jeans all summer, or risk sun damage… Life’s too short to spend hours in the sun. Tan in an Instant with the Jergens® Instant Sun® collection. To get a discount coupon code to use on your purchase, be sure to visit the Glow Advisor.
