      Well last year I used Loreal foam (love it) throughout the summer on top of a real tan. I used it on my legs and face mostly cuz thats my problem areas, it looked natural. This year I've been using the jergens lotion and I do like it. Also there's this stuff they sell at Sally's, it's a big can and it's like 15.00, its a apray tan. It's a bit stronger than loreal, I think its called sun bronze, I will look tonight. It gets on clothes lil bit, so what I do is spray myself at night and when I shower in morning, it comes off alil but to me it looks more natural that way ANDDD it helps with not getting on your clothes. KWIM? Loreal spray tan works well also. You have to build up the tan too.

          Yeah, I was going to recommend one of those self tanner lotions.

          sort of off topic, but for the face I like Loreal sublime Bronze Face wipes. I used them last summer and they were great!

            It's a big more expensive but you can always go get the professional spray tan. My sister does it and she always looks great and even everywhere. Maybe they can just do your legs right before you go?

              Ya, I figured it was because of the shaving.


              I actually have a Clinique self tanner that I like. But, it doesn't get me as dark as I like.

                I used a tanning lotion with a dark bronzer in the tanning bed and it worked. Bloom is good and so is Blend (but it is more expensive).

                You can use them outside as well, just put the tanning lotion on first then use a spary sunscreen.

                I didn't know that fat tanned the best. That totally busted my happy bubble about having a caramel colored tummy!

                    That's what I was going to say Abbie. I heard that somewhere too.

                    I can't test the theory on my (chubby) stomach because I won't let it see the light of day. LOL
