Tan Without the Sun

***Answer to this week's Bible trivia is at the end of this post ***
Years ago, I worked out with a friend who's slogan was, "whatever you have always looks better tan."  I have to say that I completely agree with her!  However, after having a few "beauty marks" removed by the dermatologist, I decided maybe tanning in salons and by the pool wasn't the best way to achieve a tan and started testing out sunless tanners.   I knew I found the right ones when someone at church remarked that I had way too much time on my hands to be able to lay out in the sun for hours working on my beautiful tan.  Ahhh . . . if they only knew that now I tan from the bottle!


There are a lot of sunless tanners out there and they all claim to be streak-free and that they won't turn you orange.  However, after a lot of trial and error, I've learned that not all sunless tanners are created equal.  Here are my 2 favorites that I use on a regular basis:
*Faux Tan - by Bare Escentuals
*Sublime Bronze Sunless Tanner - Deep Natural Tan - by Loreal
 
If you have tried sunless tanners in the past and come out looking orange, try Bare Escentuals Faux Tan . . . there is absolutely NO orange undertone whatsoever.  It's more expensive than Loreal or others offered at Walmart but it gives you a nice immediate brown glow, dries very quickly and darkens to a nice true tan color by the end of the day.  In a later post I will tell you the secrets of application that I've learned along the way . . . stay tuned!  Bonus Tip:  If you are a QVC shopper, the Faux Tan by Bare Escentuals will be featured late tonight and tomorrow and will be offered in their XLarge size that is only available twice a year. . . just a little tip for you bargain hunters out there :-)

*Answer to this week's Bible Trivia:
The answer is 2  . . . out of approx 1-3 million Israelites (over the age of 20) that left Egypt, only Joshua & Caleb were allowed to enter the Promised Land.  Because of the Israelites disobedience and lack of faith, the Lord refused to allow them to enter the Promised Land.  Read about it in Numbers 1:44-46 & 14:29-30.  Then read Galatians 5:16-21 . . . see any connections?
