So, have you ever had a tanning mishap? Given my super fair skin tone, it’s probably no surprise that I have! In fact, I’ve had plenty! My skin will tan, but not that easily. Here is a summer shot after being in Australia for a few days (we’re on the boat headed out on the Great Barrier Reef–best trip ever! 😉 The trip was in 2009). Great Barrier ReefSun kissed, but not that dark. Still pretty white-ish. And, that’s after multiple days out in the tropics (with some of the most intense UV rays on the planet)! So, over the years, I have tried almost everything out there to give my skin a little more color. Some of those attempts have been disastrous!

First up, there are the real sun kind of tanning mishaps. Right before I left for college, my family did one last fun trip to one of our favorite vacation spots- San Diego. I thought it would be great to have a little tan before going to off to school. We were spending a couple of days at a gorgeous beach house with family friends. I don’t remember how much sunscreen I put on or if I did, but one day on the beach and I got fried. Here we were at the beach and I spent the second day completely inside because I was so sun burnt that it hurt to move. Not good- can we say skin cancer?! Yikes!

I also remember giving sunless tanning lotion a try. Now, that was certainly healthier for my skin than the blistering sun burn, but it looked even more ridiculous. Nothing like orange streaks all over your legs to make a girl feel good! 😉  And, the smell?! Absolutely terrible. I tried it a few times, but I always smelled and looked so awful that I completely gave it up!

So, when Jergens recently asked me to try out their Natural Glow Moisturizer products, I was willing to give it a shot. The big improvement that had me sold on trying it “no sunless tanner odor”! So, I had to see for myself! Jergens Natural GlowOver the next couple of months, I’ll be sharing my reviews and results with you so we can all see how it goes! Fingers crossed for no more tanning mishaps!!
