  • I like coppertone, it slowly makes you darker with no streaks

  • I've always liked the gradual tanning moisturizer by Jergens. I have some upstairs but I can't remember the name of it to save my life right now...something with "Glow" in it lol.

    And just in case the comments start here, YES self tanning lotions are safe during pregnancy. I don't use them at all any more, however I was told by my midwife and dermatologist last pregnancy that they are harmless and are basically like dying your skin.

  • I use Arbonne Tan Enhancing Sunscreen and I am actually getting a really nice tan for the first time ever. I am very light complexion so I usually burn but never tan. We just bought a house with a pool this year so I have been out in the sun more than usual and was really worried about burning so I have been pleasently surprised.

  • We have this fabulous bronzer butter. It is not a tanning lotion so you don't get that orange look. It is a bronzer so you get a nice color with a very nice smell. Not only that Senegence Bronzer butter is chock full of shea butter so you are fighting those wrinkles with some great moisture too. It is a win win buy.
