Guess who isn't completely translucent anymore?

Saturday, June 26, 2010

As you probably know, my legs are so white that they'll burn a hole in your eyes if you look directly at them a little pale. I have tried everything except laying in the sun or going to a tanning salon. Because that would be stupid.

Last summer was the summer of spray tans. Not worth it. $$$

This summer, I needed something that would allow me to wear my new denim shorts. I have officially declared the summer of 2010 the summer of Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer. I have been using this on my legs so they don't look so freakishly white, and it works. I do not have the color that I had with spray tanning, but that isn't really what I was going for this time around. I have learned to embrace the fact that I am pale, but I just don't want to glow in the dark. My sister said that I actually pass for a normal person now.

The bottle of the express moisturizer is smaller than the original one and more expensive {$8-$9 per bottle} but it works quickly. You will have some color in just 2 days, so it is definitely worth it. I am just about done with my first bottle, and will be buying a few more.


Under $10 and I can wear shorts and dresses without blinding anyone. I like it.


  1. I'm translucent too! We should start a club or something. I have heard lots of good things about Jergens, but this summer I went with Johnson and Johnson's Holiday Sun and it is working out well. I also don't think tanning salons or sitting out is a good idea, and I had a very bad experience with a spray tan, so that's a no-go!

  2. yea that stuff is fantastic isn't it?! i love that it doesn't turn me orange! I am pale as well and don't have time to go melt in the sun so I resort to a few minutes of lotion lather in the am {sometimes} as well!
    ps-i like the look of your blog. new, yea?

  3. I think I'll have to try that! I am pretty blinding myself ;)

  4. So, I saw this post and went straight to Target! Thanks for the tip. I'm so white and I have bug bites on my legs from watering the damn yard and plants! I need HELP! Call me.

  5. I so enjoyed reading this at 3 am in the ER (I was so bored), no worries, everything's fine. Haha, I am getting this today, I am so so pale as well. Thanks for the tip!

  6. Thanks for the review, maybe I'll try it...NOT. Ha. ;)
