Famous Dave’s {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I LOVE having a tan!  Even though I haven’t been showing a lot of skin at the beach this summer, I had a huge motivation to get as tan as possible in a short amount of time: I just finished performing in a show!  As I mentioned, I got a part in a little South Pacific musical review, and my costume entailed looking like I had spent months in the South Pacific, instead of in actuality, lathered in sunscreen and chillin under park trees!  “I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Outta My Hair” required a little bathing suit wardrobe, and next to some of these girls who spent consecutive days at the beach, I knew I was going to be in trouble!

Not only am I opposed to spending hours and hours tanning outside for sun-exposure reasons, but I don’t have a spare minute, let along a spare afternoon to even START on my tan!  Help!  Famous Dave’s Self Tanner to the rescue!

If you’re a Dandy fan, you also know that I did another sunless tanner review a few weeks ago.  I was still interested in trying out another brand to compare the differences, since there were some things about the last product that I didn’t love, like how much rubbing in was required and how easy it was to get streaks and lines, and the color was starting to look a little orange to me as it built up.  (Most tanners contain ingredients that cause skin to turn orange.  Not so with Dave’s.)  I am so glad I tried out another kind of sunless tanner, because I have really found a true love in a sunless tanner.

The first and foremost thing that I love about Dave’s is the foamy glove included!  Instead of rubbing and rubbing in with rubber gloves and worrying about streaks and lines with other tanners, this foam glove really smooths the lotion in after rubbing across your skin 2-3 times, done.  What comes out is more like a creamy lotion, thick and white, instead of a dye, already dark yellow/brown/black.  I really like this shade of medium.  It looks a lot more natural to me, and it is much less obvious when I accidentally miss places like the sides of my feet or the back of my neck.
…
What feels like reason #25 of things I like better about this tanner is that you don’t have to rinse it off after a few hours.  You can get dressed in 5 minutes and go right to wearing your whites worry-free.  Additionally, because this lotion is so natural-looking and easy to blend in quickly, it is great for your face!  It is safe to use, and I was never bothered by any fumes by my face.  (It IS 100% fragrance free, if you were wondering).  I wouldn’t dare try other brands of sunless tanner on my face, for fear that a mis-application, either too dark or spotty, would stain my face awkward for a full 10 days!

I can’t get enough of this tan look!  It looks so natural and so professional to me.  My husband can’t keep from commenting on it, something like “You look so healthy!”  I never want to go back to my whiteness!  And who says I have to?

As soon as people start talking “Back to School”, the summer is basically over.  Instead of long days at the beach, its long days shopping for school supplies, registering for classes, and doing some life re-organizing.  As your summer draws to a close, are you mourning the loss of your beautiful tan?  That is usually one of the sad parts of Fall for me!  Oh how I LOVE a good healthy glow!  That UV always comes at a price, don’t cha know, and I’ve really made a conscious effort to stay sun-exposure-free this summer.  It was hard, but for the best.  So how did I get my fix for glowing skin without the damage?  Sunless tanning lotion from Sun Goddess!

You guys, this is highly effective stuff.  If you haven’t tried sunless tanner before, let me convince you how easy it can be to get a ‘fake’ tan that looks legit.  Sun Goddess lotion is a dark liquid in a pump that you rub in like lotion in the places you’d like an insta-tan.

I admit that applying it to look natural did take a little practice for this novice, so I’m glad I first tried it out on a weekend where I wasn’t planning on seeing anyone.  Here were some of my mistakes:
1) I applied the lotion to my peeling knees (which were burned from white-water rafting trip a week previous).  As you can see, with my peeling skin, the result was a very multi-colored spotted leg, but this went away as soon as the burned skin fell off and I tried another lotion application a few days later.  Just make sure you aren’t peeling when you take to the sunless stuff!

2)  Rub it in well!  Or else you’ll end up with streaky, drippy legs like mine!  My first application was very hurried, since I was trying to rush it in order to wash my hands in time before they turned orange.  Problem solved if I had just worn the included gloves in the first place and taken my time to really rub it all in.

Speaking of the gloves, wear them!!  They’re included in the cute little pink bag, and they help to keep your hands color-free.  The substance comes out dark brown/black, and you rub rub rub til it is all absorbed.  I’ve found that circular motions are best to avoid streaky lines.

Once I got the hang of it, (really, it took only one or two attempts to learn where not and how much to apply), I felt like a pro and I LOVE having some healthy color in my skin!  I’m still get comments from family members and even people in the doctor’s office about how nice and tan I look.

When you try this out yourself, just read the directions and you’ll be all set.  It recommends showering a few hours after applying, and if you can’t get a rinse in, just stick to dark clothes until you can.  The only time I noticed the color coming off onto my clothes (before rinsing) is when we went to a splash park and a wet child sat on my lap.  If I hadn’t gotten my lap wet, I’m sure the coloring would never have come off.  Now look at the difference between my arms and my non-tanning lotioned stomach:

Striking, right?  I can attest to this lotion lasting a full 10 days like it claims.  This stuff goes deep!  I’ve sure been loving my tan this summer!  I love looking so healthy and knowing that I didn’t have to spend any unprotected time in the sun to get it.
