User post: Self-Tanning Lotions That Don't Suck

I've been on an endless quest to find tanning lotions that are easy to apply, without looking orange, blotchy, or streaky. I'm a girl that on the go; the kind of girl that literally gives herself 10 minutes in the morning to wake up and get out the door. So, with time being of the essence, this is what I've got:

Jergen's Natural Glow: $7.94, 7.5 oz, Walmart ON SALE
Very easy to apply, and virtually FOOL-PROOF. It's thicker than most other formulas so you don't have to use a lot to get nice coverage. Downside: The lotion just stinks. My boyfriend would barely touch me after I applied this lotion. So even though I had a lovely "glow" about me, I kind of smelled like expired Nair.

L'oreal Sublime Glow Daily Moisturizer Medium Skin Tones: $7.69, 8 oz CVS ON SALE
By far, my favorite tanning lotion. Smells amazing! MUCH better than any other tanning lotion out there right now, for the price. It also has very subtle sparkles in it that make you look fantastic. Downside: A little more runny than other brands. So you have to spend more time rubbing it in to avoid streaking.

There are many more out there, but these are the most successful, so you might not want to waste your time, or money.

Happy Tanning!
