    Such a helpful post! I too use the Clarins gel and have for awhile. It smells and I hate havin to wait for it to dry, but the color is totally worth it! Now if try could only invent a skef tanner that was instant, didn’t have a dry time, and smelled like perfume!

    I’m feeling the same way! Put shorts on this morning, I need some self tanner!

    Ooo thanks for sharing – I gotta check these out. I’m practically see-through! I actually picked up a bottle of the Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer this weekend – I’m so glad they finally fixed the smell (hate that side effect!) which was the only problem I had. Here’s hoping we will all have some natural color soon, too – bring on that warm sunshine!

    I hate self-tanners that smell funky and I feel like I’m on an eternal search to find one that doesn’t. Jergen’s lotions are usually pretty good, but I really want to try the Bare Minerals one.

    I love the Micro-mist spray. It’s my fave go-to for quick color.

    I got the Bare Minerals one at Pepperologie this weekend, excited to try it!
