It’s almost Summer and that means it’s time to get our tan on! Sunless tan that is. We all know how damaging the sun can be to the skin, so like with everything in life… sun in moderation is fine. However, it’s awesome we now have safe options for achieving gorgeous glowing tanned skin anytime of the year.
I work in the Cosmetic Industry and remember quite a few years ago when Oprah talked about Jergens on her show and the next day Jergens was literally flying off the store shelves. I have used Jergens Natural Glow Body Moisturizers since they were first launched. But I have never tried their Natural Glow with ‘Firming’ added to the mix. Who doesn’t want a little added firming included for good measure? I want to be firm while glowing don’t you? I want it all! 😉
The thing I love best about Jergens Natural Glow is that it provides a gradual colour. It’s not as intense as a typical self tanner. It’s more like a body moisturizer with the bonus of achieving some colour. This product will give you visible colour after a few uses. I use it daily until I build up enough colour then I maintain colour by applying it every 2nd to 3rd day. When you stop applying the Jergens your colour will fade after a few days just like an actual sun tan fades. You can control how much colour you want depending how often you apply. I really like this product because the colour is natural & sublte, actually moisturizes, has minimal odor and makes my skin glow.
NATURAL GLOW PLUS FIRMING DAILY MOISTURIZER
– Comes in 2 shades – Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan.
– Winner of Allure Magazine’s Readers Choice Award for 2 years running – 2013 & 2014.
– clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
If you are a fair skin tone you can start with the Fair to Medium and after you obtain enough colour and decide to go darker you can switch to the darker formula. However, I am a very fair skin tone (aka ghostly!) and I find that I can achieve a pretty dark colour just by continuing to apply the Fair to Medium colour.
NEW JERGENS NATURAL GLOW COLOUR PRIMER IN-SHOWER SCRUB
This body scrub is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Considering how popular face makeup primers are I guess it was only a matter of time before we were introduced to ‘body primers’. This product is essentially a body exfoliator that prepares (primes) your skin for a streak free, flawless self tan colour. I always recommend exfoliating before applying self tanners. It is a crucial step to achieving an even natural looking colour. Exfoliating off dry skin specially around areas such as ankles, knees and heels is especially important.
It is recommended to use this scrub once a week prior to self tanning.
NEW JERGENS SHEA BEAUTY OIL
I am all about the body oils out in the market lately. I honestly can’t get enough. I will never turn down a good body oil! This new oil by Jergens is Fab. Really. It is packed with delicious Shea Butter and Argan Oil to hydrate and condition your skin. Ever wonder how Jennifer Lopez gets her legs looking so gorgeous and glowy? Body oils will do the trick!
It is recommended to use the oil after your shower on damp skin. I also have applied it on dry skin and it works just as well. It adds that extra glow without being greasy and leaves your skin so smooth and hydrated. In love! With dress and skirt season right around the corner this oil will definitely be a staple product.
NEW JERGENS SHEA BUTTER DEEP CONDITIONING BODY MOISTURIZER
This body moisturizer is loaded with Pure African Shea Butter for intense hydration and HydraLucence for beautiful illuminating skin. It’s deep in hydration and absorbs without leaving a heavy sticky residue. You can feel amazing while using this product as well as feel good about helping support the women of West Africa who rely on Shea for their livelihoods. Shea is also known as Women’s Gold and empowers thousands of women every year providing them jobs and income during harvest and Shea production.
We love the large pump-style bottle and the smell of this body lotion is absolutely delicious! It’s not overpowering and you can still wear perfume with it. It leaves a really pretty subtle, Shea Butter smell… the perfect scent for Summer nights.
Before & After using Jergens Natural Glow Body Firming Daily Moisturizer for 3 days.
We love that Jergens products make it so easy to achieve a beautiful, safe & sunless tan at home.
