Hmmm, I need to check out the Hawaiian Tropics one and maybe the Alba Botanica, that sounds interesting.
I just used the Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun and I look like an Oompa Loompa. 🙁 I’m curious if any of the others are better and give more natural, less orange color.
kissmysparkle Oh, it didn’t work out for you? Try L”Oreal’s new serum…it’s great!
aitch77 Glad you like the post! 🙂 I like almost everything Alba Botanica…they have good stuff!
the banana boat one is great for sure I use to use it all the time the dark one has good color after the first application but the l’oreal one is honestly terrible in my opinion, it’s orange and very streaky.. And it’s more expensive than others. I had to return the one I tried. My favorite gradual tanner is the Malibu Hempz one in the brown bottle. Try it it’s amazing for everyday it gives a totally natural color, not streaky, and doesn’t have a bad DHA smell (I’m fair skinned for reference) it’s more like Jergen’s where it requires more application for deeper color but for me it shows up nicely right away 🙂
