The scent of self-tanner is a big pet-peeve of mine. It’s just nasty. It smells like dead leady bugs and French toast. If you’ve never smelled a dead ladybug, they smell like dry dirt. If you’ve never smelled French toast…well you have bigger issues than needing a tan. It bugs me and I’m hyper aware of it. So when choosing a self-tanner, I smell the shit out of it and often put a small tester on the top of my hand, walk around the store for a while then take a sniff. If you do this, don’t put on a lot…I’m talking a tiny dot or else you’ll have a weird tan spot.
Just a reminder, Jergens doesn't pay me to blog about their products, I just happen to like them the best right now and I've tried and lot of self tanning products. If you have a question about one or would like me to guinea pig a brand for you, just let me know in the comment section.
