I’m normally completely opposed to anything involving self tanner, but picked up this tinted moisturizer out of necessity since my recent bout of boy fail has kept me indoors for the past week. And though I don’t love this stuff, it’s the least fail of all the self tanners I’ve tried.
Don’t let the word “moisturizer” fool you though, this stuff packs quite a punch. The label says it’ll darken your skin by a shade in three days, but by the second day I was almost too dark. I suppose if you’re going for a dark tan this is great news, but since all I wanted was a little color it was a bit too much.
I do like the fact that it didn’t leave me all streaky, and because the lotion has a slight color it’s easy to see where you’re putting it. It will however turn your hands as orange as a tanorexics face, so make sure you wash them well when you’re done.
While it doesn’t beat the natural glow that comes from going out in the sunshine instead of watching The Nanny re-runs in your PJs, it’s good enough to get you by until your next tan. Or until you realize that stupid boys aren’t worth it, and decide to go out looking for new ones =D
Verdict: It’s Aight
Get it: drugstores
Because it’s such a beautiful day out there, let’s brighten things up even further with this little throwback gem, courtesy of Coko. Yes, the Coko from SWV. As far as I know this was her only successful single as a solo artist, but damn it I still love it! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside =D
Ok I know this song doesn’t really qualify as ‘old school,’ but there really is nothing like Koffee Brown circa 2001. Seriously, does anyone know whatever happened to these guys? They were really, really good!
Now I will leave you, so I can remenisce on what my life was like when this song came out. I was happy, young and in love…ah those were the days!!!
