Go for the Bronze! Goof Proof Self Tanning
Is it too late for Olympics references?! I don’t think so.
I’m faking my way to a Misty May Treanor tan. In addition to my usual skin cancer concerns, the heavy, steamy weekends we’ve had in Boston for the past few weeks have not made for the best beach tanning.
- Odor. Beautisol still has a slight odor, but it’s nothing compared to most self tanners on the market. According to their website, they use “Pure Scent” technology that eliminates the processing odor by 70%. Whatever they’re doing, it’s working!
- Streaks. The Summer Glow self tanning lotion for body tanning features a built-in bronzer that acted as a guide to show me where my work was streaky and where I needed to color in the lines.
- Orange Tint. While I will forever cherish the first season of the Jersey Shore, I am sort of over Snooki and her oompa loompa tint these days. Beautisol left me with a very natural bronze with no hint of Skooks in sight!
My favorite part of the Beautisol approach is that the products come with a full suite of instructional videos featuring founder and Self Tanning Queen Sinead Norenius. She has essentially goof-proofed the application process from head to toe. I’m the first to admit that I need this sort of instruction before attempting anything that’s going to last 3-7 days!

Too bad I can’t fake my way to a Misty May Treanor body!
