Need a Good Self Tanner
I have been using Estee Lauder Sunless Supertan self tanner for years and I LOVE it! But of course, they stopped making it and I am now in need of a recommendation. Estee Lauder now sells something called Bronze Goddess, but I have not tried it yet.
Can any of you recommend a good self tanner for a very fair skinned mom? I have tried some of the cheaper drug store ones, but have found them to be very streaky and fake looking.

I use the Avon self tanners. I love them and it's not so expensive. Check out www.youravon.com/vpesce ... or email me ____@____.com

I'm quite fair as well and have the same problem with streakiness-- however after much trial and error I think I have mastered the trick...
2. When you get out of the shower, air dry or lightly towel yourself but its best if your skin is still a bit damp.
3. Make a 50/50 mixture of your fave reg moisturizer and the Sublime Bronze in your hand, making sure its really well mixed, then go to town on yourself! You'll want to be gentle around the ankles and tops of your feet but do not skip them entirely or you'll get 'amputee effect'
4. If the 50/50 mixture doesn't seem TAN enough adjust the proportions in subsequent applications
(the alternative method is to just pre-moisturize your whole body, wait a few minutes then apply the Sublime Bronze at full strength in a light coat)

Clarins sunless selftanner cream and gel. Both are fabulous and give you a great "glow" A. B

I just started using one from The Body Shop and I love it. It is the first one i've ever used that doesn't have that sunless tanner smell. There are 2 different shades.
