What brand of self tanner do you use?

I'm looking to find a good self tanner that is easy to use and doesn't cause a lot of streaking. My legs never tan no matter how long I stay in the sun. I'm supposed to be going to Vegas in about 5 weeks, and I really dont want to go with ghost white legs. Does any one know of any good self tanners that I can try out? Thanks!

I suggest Jergens lotion. It's not self tanner, it's just tinted lotion but I love it so much more than self tanner. I notice a difference after one application but it's doesn't look orange like most self tanners. And it's not streaky since you apply it just like lotion. For self tanners, my mom swears by Lancome. She's been using it for as long as I can remember.

I think I heard a commercial about this stuff on the tv! I've been wondering how it works. Thanks for the suggestion!

I use to use the Jergens too, but I have to admit it really smells aweful... its kind of embarassing, smells like you went to an actually tanning salon or something. I LOVE the Dove gradual tanner... smells good and dries quick! No streaks what so ever! Perfect!

thanks for sharing! You are right about the smells. Every kind I have tried all have that god awful 'perm' smell that doesn't go away.

I wish I had a before and after picture for you. I was actually putting on my tanning lotion when I saw this past. I LOOOOOOOVE my Banana Boat Everyday glow. It is a daily moisturizer and works so good. I got the fair skin one and it really does give me a natural looking tan without worrying I will have dark ankles, knees or stripes.It doesn't have a stron smell like most tanners. I am really fair so normally I look a little yellow. So easy to use I use it maybe 2 or 3 times a week after I get a shower. My husband asked if my legs were tan from being outside so much or from tanner. I asked what he thought and he said outside. Little does he know it really is this tanner and it just looks that natural. My legs don't tan at all. I get sunburned then back to white with dark freckles. Yuck. I love my banana boat everyday glow! Oh and the best part...I bought it from the dollar store. I would pay full price for it though. Oh I also have Banana Boat Summer Color airbrush self-tanner. It works really good for a fast darker tan. I do have to be a little careful on my feet though. Oh and if it gets wet too soon it will come off and be blotchy.

I am going to look for this stuff at the dollar store near me. I wonder if they have it too! I'm going out some time today, maybe I can stop at the dollar store and pick some up! Thanks for posting about this!!
