    Default Self tanners: any recommendations?

    Anyone have any self tanner recommendations? I avoid the sun due to pre-skin cancer removals, but still would like some color. I've tried the lotions and because my skin is so fair, all I see are streaks. Recently tired the spray on one from Victoria Secret but still see some inconsistencies.

    try Makeupalley.com...there are reviews on like every self tanner out there....

    I use Clarins on my face and St Tropez on my body, but I'm not really fair, more of a medium.

    Buy a bottle of bee propolis and mix it in. It's a patented combination which creates a deeper and more natural tan...unfortunately no one really produces it :/

    I really love L'Oreal's Sublime Bronze Gel. Its easy to work with, allows you to build up color, doesn't streak. They also have self-tanning cloths which work great, but i"m still partial to the gel.

    But then again, self-tanners are a pain in the ass. It looks great the first day and then you have to deal with it exfoliating off and looking like you have a skin condition.

    clarins always has a nice one. i've also found that origins' "great pretender" is a good color for the super pale skin. not orangey at all. just a nice light bronzey color.
    I'm a hard act to follow because when I'm done, I take the microphone with me.

    LOL! I just want a nice, healthy glow- not to look like an oompa loompa.

    What about Jergens Natural Glow lotion? It's just a moisturizer with a touch of tanner in it to gradually give you a little tan. You can get the light/fair kind if you're super pale and it shouldn't make you look Oompa Loompa, just like you have a bit of color.

    Everyone I know who's used it really likes it. I would try it myself, but it's not fragrance free and anything with any scent at all makes me itch & scratch like crazy.

    Exfoliate really well first. Then apply moisturizer. Then mix Clarin's sunless tanner with about 25% moisturizer and apply.

    Yep, try Jergens, the newest one is a mousse and goes on really well.
