I Tried Out Self-Tanners And Became Orange So That You Don't Have To

I became orange so that you (hopefully) don't have to.

Hi, it's me, Lara. Like many people, I like having a nice ~summer glow~ to my skin. But I don't like skin damage, wrinkles, and sunburn.

So I chose four of the most popular self-tanners on the market to see which one worked the best.

Come on this journey with me, and rest assured that I became orange so that you (hopefully) won't have to.

I rated each self-tanner on overall product, usability, durability, and of course how the tan actually looked! And to ensure accuracy, I waited at least a week in between to let my skin recover and become its natural color again. I also used lemon juice to remove prior color when necessary. #Hack.

Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer ($8.21)

L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Towelettes ($8.16)

St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse ($27.95) + Application Mitt ($6.50)

This is what my mitt looked like after I had finished. Save your hands.

Kardashian Instant Sunless Spray ($17.10)

Like I said, the color might get all over your bathroom, but just clean it up with a bathroom cleaner and you'll be G2G.

The winner:
