quick rec for a year-round glow

Attention all fellow pale-whities!  If you are like me, you've embraced the fact that you will never {naturally} have that Gisele-Bundchen-bronze glow, and that's okay.  Having said that, should you need to achieve a skin tone that won't cause passersby to shield their eyes, I recommend using this.
I discovered NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer a couple years ago and haven't since strayed because it is the sh!t. Allow me to gush enlighten you NIVEA virgins:

  • Most importantly, it works
  • It smells yummy**
  • It doesn't streak or make your skin patchy
  • It doesn't rub off on clothing
  • Not only does it make you look subtly glowy right away, but it firms your skin, giving you a toned look
  • You can build on the depth of the tone, depending on how many days in a row you apply it
  • It's cheap
  • It's not only a self-tanner but a moisturizer as well
    The thing that got me thinking about sharing this product with you is my brother's impending nuptials, for which I am a bridesmaid.  The other maids fake-and-bake {no way, not this Virgo!}, so I would stick out like a bleached sore thumb.  I plan on getting in to a routine of applying it daily starting roughly two weeks before the big day, so at least I will feel like I tried.

    I should note that unfortunately there is no SPF in the moisturizer--its only drawback--so if you plan on using it, I strongly recommend getting on dee boat, dee Banana Boat, before lathering up.  That's all for now.  If you try it, let me know what you think!   

    **NIVEA smells good, unlike other self-tanners that make your skin smell like you were sprayed by a male cat, like that one company whose name begins with a J and ends in ergens.

    This sounds just like what I need! Hate all those normal horrible smelling self tanners!;)

    Will definitely have to try. I never go in the sun and am always looking for a good (fake) glow! just a bit!

    we will see how it compares to jergens.
