  • I LOVE Ocean Potion's Gradual Glow. I bought it once at Wal-mart then couldn't find it anywhere so I ordered it on It is a good price and it smells like Orange Cream-sicles, not that nasty chemical smell. And it has cocoa butter, I think, so it makes my skin feel really nice. I'm actually waiting for some from UPS right now!

  • I like Loreal's submile glow, its a lotion with a light self tanner so it goes on even and dosn't look fake... although it takes a while to "build" your tan :)

  • I second Arbonne's because it has no chemicals and does make a nice glow about you without streaking or turning you orange. So many turn colors as they oxidize and react with your skin that you can't really trust it. It's nice because is it a spray on. I can show you before and after pictures if you'd like! Again, it pure and botanically based. They have an AWESOME bronzer for your face too that I use everyday. I swear it lasts forever and I don't have to worry how white I am. I always look healthy! Great for touchups on the white strap mark too!

  • I am VERY pale and I agree Arbonnes is amazing. I have tried others and this is all I can use. I do have a before and after I can show you too. To bad I can't do it here.. oh I think I have it on my myspace.. working on adding to cafemom.. lol anyhow went a bit off. I ldo love it and it is good for your skin and the bronzer they have is wonderful too. here is my site there is a 45 day guarentee so if you don't like it for any reason send it back or exchange it for something else.

    Letme know if you have any questions and good luck! Keep us posted!
