Sun and the sunless

Sun Labs makes my favorite sunless tanner.  I found out about the product while watching a YouTube video from Kandee, a fantastic makeup artist and blogger. 

I've had many issues with self-tanners, the biggest of which would be smell and color.  Sun's Overnight Self-Tanning Lotion in medium is what I've been using for about a year now.  The best part about this product is it smells like almonds when first applied and pretty much fades in a few hours.

noooooo orange Lindsay.
The color is realistic if you don't overuse.  A few times a week will give you a nice color without looking like an orange Lindsay Lohan (I know...bitchy right). 

I've applied at night after a shower, but also sometimes before an event or going out for the evening.  Since the product is tinted, it gives me a nice color without the wait.

I suggest using a glove like this one to apply to the body.  Makes it so much easier and the product goes on much smoother. Happy Tanning! 

Here's a pic of me and my husband, as you can see, the self tanner isn't too orange.


  1. The tanner really looks natural on you, which is great coz the orange hue is better suited for Halloween. You look great and tanned:-)

  2. agreed! I don't really want to look like I just got back from Florida fully tanned. Just a little color will do for me, especially in the winter months. :-)

  3. Now I know why you always look so perfectly tan! I had only tried the creams with a slight tint to them. Not real tanners b/c I was afraid of looking orange since I am so pale. I've given up on self tanners and decided to just be pale.

  4. @Robin: thanks doll! It's hard work being tan in winter...most of the time I give up early and wait until spring, but this stuff is pretty easy to apply so I'm going to try and keep it up this winter...we'll see.

  5. Hey! I just found your blog, it is amazing and now I am following it! Hope you will follow my blog too!
