Buh-Bye Casper!

It's officially Summer! {Yeah, I know, it took the Pacific Northwest a little longer to get with the program}. I could not be happier to see the sun, but I am a bit hesitant to show off the pale, pasty skin. I don't have the time, money, or desire to go sit in a tanning bed, so . . . .

Let me introduce my new best friend. I've been a big fan of self-tanner for several years. It gives my skin a little glow when I'm feeling blah. But the last time I purchased any was over two years ago. Sad, huh? I loved the brand I used to buy, but it was a bit pricey, and I could only get it at the mall {a 45 minute trip each way}, and I could not handle the smell anymore. Is it a written rule that self-tanner has to smell so . . . self-tannery?

Yesterday the girls and I headed to Wal-mart to pick up a few summer must-haves {more on that later}, and I scoped out the self-tanners. I've always liked Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen. Mostly because it smells good, and doesn't leave me feeling sticky. So imagine my delight to see that they make a self-tanner too! Score!

I tried it for the first time this morning, and I liked it a lot! No stickiness, no drying out my skin, and it didn't smell horrible. In fact, it smelled pretty dang good when I put it on. {If I were to be completely truthful, I do sense a smidgen of that self-tanner smell, but it's not nearly as bad as what I'm used to, and could easily be covered up with a scented lotion}. And the best part, no streaking!

In conclusion, if you're looking for a self-tanner, I suggest you try it. It was, like, $9 at Wal-Mart. Pick some up today!

{Yes, I do sound like a commercial. No, I'm not getting paid to post this ;)}

Thank you, Liz. Sierra was telling me about it yesterday as a matter of fact. I will add that to my shopping list. Mom
