How it works: The Jergens stuff is the OG of subtle self tanners–but this one promises it’s ditched the unpleasant odor entirely. The tan gets deeper over several days of application.
• An easy-to-do, user-friendly application–though you can’t see where you’ve already applied.
• There was minimal smell!
• It was hard to tell the real impact of the color since it happens so gradually… Maybe too gradual?
• Our face seemed to darken faster than rest of body for whatever reason.
• It left dark spots if not rubbed in completely, with some splotchiness around wrists and elbows.
Overall: We started noticing color developing on Day 3, and by Day 6, had a tan that looked more natural than other products we’d used before. Definitely a smart choice for self tanning beginners.
Best for: People with an overwhelming fear of turning orange over the course of an hour. When it comes to this self tanner, slow and steady wins the race.
