Our Thoughts: Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer
Jergens is known for their original scent cherry-almond lotions. Though they’re creating a variety of products now, their moisturizers are still incredible and deserve some spotlight. Jergens makes great firming lotions, hydrating creams, wet skin moisturizers, and self tanning products.
Their self-tanning products are becoming quite expansive though, so we branched out to try at least one of them. With so many other self-tanning products on the market, how did we pick this one? Rumor had it, Jergens’ natural glow moisturizers were safe for sensitive skin. That made the choice easy, so we hustled to snag one of those.
I tried this lotion after a good dose of exfoliation post-shower. As any self-tanning lady knows, it’s best to try the color after exfoliation because then the color has a better chance of sinking into your skin in a streak-less, flawless fashion. Streakiness is a common complaint uttered by self-tanners, so be sure to take this step seriously. Okay, as seriously as you can because let’s face it. Your hands are probably going to change colors in this process and there’s nothing serious about that.
Now, most self tanners have a funky smell to them. Sorry Jergens, but this is no different. It’s tolerable though it does have a hint of ‘eau de chemical’ to it. The smell wears off very quickly, unlike the color. Without thinking, I applied this right before bed after a shower for the first time. When I woke up, there was no tan or color stain on my sheets! Can you say hallelujah?
I saw a difference within two or three days of regular application. By regular application, that means in place of my regular moisturizer. So, applied morning and night for three days and my skin was a shade of tan I wasn’t afraid to wear shorts with. Can you blame a girl? Winters are long!
Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer comes with a pump now, too. That makes application easier, if only because I don’t have to open the tube of lotion. Walk by, grab a pump, apply and you’re good to go! The easiness of this self-tanner is perfect for someone working on a tan with normally fair skin, or for someone who wants to enhance their tan.
Overall, this self tanner gets a 3.5 out of 5 stars from me.
Get out there and get your tan on. Have any of you tried any of Jergens self tanning products? Let us know!
