With winter in full swing you might be noticing you are looking a little too fair. You might be dreaming of traveling to some place warm and getting back your summer tan like I have been. I have never tried a self tanner before because I always felt like they would turn me some unnatural orange color. I thought I would try a sunless tanner to just confirm my feelings on it. I tried Million Dollar Tan Cabana Tan Extreme, like the name says it’s a sunless tanning lotion that will get you bronzed fast. It’s an intense version of Million Dollar Tan’s, Cabana Tan.
When I pumped out the tanner, the color of the lotion is white. I applied it all over my body, legs and arms. I did not apply this to my face. The color doesn’t develop right away. It takes about 6-8 hours to fully show. It absorbed quickly and there was no color transfer on my clothes. You can apply lotion to your body after you apply Cabana Tan Extreme. Don’t make my mistake by not washing your hands after applying the lotion. Since the color was white I forgot to wash my hands after and my palms were also tan in 6-8 hours. It wasn’t horrible and I was able to get the color off of my palms with a little scrubbing. I was pleasantly surprised how beautiful my tan looked and how natural it looked. That I even applied more lotion the next day to get it a deeper color. There was no streaking and it blended in very easily. I looked like I had just come from St. Barth. The color lasted about a week and I really loved it, that I have been using it every week. It makes me feel like I look thinner and more toned, the way I feel in summer.
I love that Million Dollar Tan uses organic and hydrating ingredients, such as aloe, sesame oil, vitamin E and sweet almond oil. Some tips on how to prepare your skin before sunless tanning. Shower, shave and exfoliate. Then after you have dried off apply the sunless tanner like you would body lotion. You just need to apply a thin layer of it and if you want a deeper color you can reapply. The color builds easily. Don’t apply to areas like your knees, or elbows if they have a slightly darker pigment than your body. Don’t forget to wash your hands! If you miss summer, this is a great pick me up.
