Good stuff

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
With the hot weather, I wear skirts more often but my legs are very pale. Being fair-skinned, wrinkle and skin cancer cautious, I avoid the sun, though. In the past, I've tried self-tanners and didn't like the results. Sunday, I picked up a bottle of Dove Energy Glow moisturizer, with self-tanner. My legs now have a nice, even golden color, which is supposed to deepen, with continued use. I've also used Jergen's Natural Glow but didn't like the results, as it has a tendency to streak.

I just don't want to look like this one woman at work. She got a fake tan and has missed several spots. In addition, its a horrible shade, for her and she looks as if she's been rolling in dirt

That's great that you found something that works...maybe you need to share that with your co-worker

I have the Jergens face right now and not noticed a spot of difference, but I got the fair and probably should have gotten the medium anyhoo, I might try the Dove then for my legs I never see the sun so I'm not very golden either

The Dove has a lower percentage of the self-tanner. Therefore, it has a lower propensity to streak. The bottle says that it takes about a week, to build up a good color/glow.

Oohh I tried the Jergens last year & didn't like the results either. I'm gonna try the Dove! I just used it on my legs and arms- I never used it on my face since I usually get enough color on my face... I was always worried about using face tanners... I dont want to be streaky on my face!

How does the Dove do in the knee and ankle areas? Those are the places that always seem to streak or get off-color from the rest for me.

I tried the Jergens last year and got horrible streaky orange legs right at the height of summer and couldn't wear shorts for 2 weeks.
I'll try the Dove too, I like the sound of building up the tan more slowly.

I never had an issue with Jergens. I did have an issue with Target's version of Jergens. Maybe I will give Dove a shot. I like their shower gel and lotions.

My knees and ankles are looking fine. Don't use TOO much and make sure to rub it ALL in. I'm using it twice a day - morning and evening.

I use the Jergens one, and it looks fine

BTW I love the invention of this stuff..its pretty much fool proof...and I am so pale..this excites me very much to get such an easy, safe tan
