Can I share a secret with you? I’m not much of a tanner. I’ve never had a spray tan or been in a tanning bed, and I avoid the sun. Two family members have had skin cancer scares, so I take super good care of my pasty white skin.
But it comes with a price. I’m so fair I feel like Casper! I also feel like I can’t wear white because it blends in with my skin. I’m at my brother’s wedding in a few months and when I tried on my bridesmaid dress, all I could think about was how washed out I looked.
Jergens Natural Glow
What’s a girl to do?! Create my own sunshine, of course!
I struggle with this every summer but this year, I am determined to do something about it and go through the summer with a lovely glow.
I was shopping at my local Walmart and saw Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun Deep Bronze in the lotion aisle. I read over the directions and it looked so easy to use, I figured why not!
The next day, I showered, exfoliated, and thoroughly dried my skin. Then, I pumped the mousse into my palm and rubbed it into my skin. NOTE: Use sparingly around the knees, ankles, and elbows! The product has an airy mousse texture and you get natural-looking color instantly. Wash your hands immediately after so too much color doesn’t sink into your hands. Then let it dry for a few minutes before getting dressed.
The color appears immediately and gets darker over the next couple of hours. I applied just the right amount on my arms, neck, and chest, but I think I went a little overboard on my legs. You live and you learn, right?! Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun Deep Bronze works with your skin tone and mimics results from the sun. The glow lasts for up to seven days, so this is perfect to do before vacation!
If you apply and want it darker, just re-apply the next day. If you have any unwanted color on your skin, use a body scrub to remove it.
See the before and after photos below.
You can find the Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun Deep Bronze at your local Walmart in the lotion aisle or online here. You can also find a local Walmart near you here.

Oh girl I am SO pale so I definitely need to invest in this!!
This is what I need! I love their other products so I’m sure I’d love this too!
Jergans has the best self-tanner! It’s not only affordable but gives you a great, gradual tan!
I definitely understand where you’re coming from. I’m super fair as well. But I do love a good spray tan whenever I can haha. I have always used Jergens products to keep me consistently golden throughout the summer when I can’t be outside. Love this!

Girl this white dress looks gorgeous on you! I don’t really need a self-tanner, but I do LOVE Jergen’s products! xo
This product really did give a lovely glow! And I don’t blame you for avoid tanning beds and sunbathing, a little color isn’t worth risking cancer.

That before and after looks so natural! Not a streak or orange tint in sight!
