There is nothing I love more about summer than having an all-over golden complexion. But by winter, I had nothing to show for those long hours I spent lying in the sun – only pale, dried out skin. That definitely doesn’t scream “sexy” to me. Instead of exposing myself to the harmful UV rays of a tanning bed, I opted for a safe but effective sunless tanner – Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer. This alternative gave me a natural looking tan without the risk of turning into a walking piece of leather hide.
Jergens Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer provides a long-lasting glow that develops gradually and subtly in three to ten days. The skin tone chart located on the back of the bottle will help you determine whether you should buy the “fair to medium” or “medium to tan” version by matching the given “Day One” shade to the inside of your forearm. In testing the product for a week before a school dance, I noticed that my skin was significantly darker, and was pleased to not see an orange tint or streaking. The color stayed for almost two weeks after I stopped using the product, but I loved it so much that I continued to apply it every few days to maintain. Not only does it give you a nice, even skin tone; its combination of antioxidants and Vitamin E ingredients make it an invigorating moisturizer. It was a bonus to have a smooth, healthy feel to my skin as well.
To reach the best results possible, be sure exfoliate before using and follow the application directions carefully. If too much product is used and not rubbed in thoroughly between toes and fingers, ankles, knees, or elbows, it can appear blotchy. However, I never experienced this to be a problem. My nails beds did turn slightly dark orange the first time, which is why you must always wash your hands after applying. Unfortunately this Jergens product does not contain SPF, but it can be used before putting on sunscreens, cosmetics, and other moisturizers. Some users have not been satisfied with the particularly potent scent, but it can be masked with Jergens Original Scent Moisturizer.
In the end, you will be happy you chose Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer because you can be putting on not just your moisturizer, but enhancing your natural color at the same time. If moisture alone is what you desire, try Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer.
