I like the Jergens Natural Glow. You could also try the spray tan that they do at tanning salons.

I and a few friends have had bad experiences with Neutrogena.

I used Loreal Sublime Bronze last summer and loved it. It is a tanner that is also a bronzer so you see where it goes on and you are also tan right away. You might do one application today and see how it goes. Bronzer will rub off a bit on clothes, so either let it dry for like an hour or don't put it on on Friday.

Mix it with a bit of lotion with the tanner for your knees, elbows, feet, etc and you will be less likely to get a concentratioon of color in those areas.

You could also do a powder bronzer on your face and chest (do the self-tan today, then powder bronzer before the formal).

The spray tan at the booth is very good too as mentioned before.

Peroxide will help get rid of orange streaks if you end up with any.

I just discovered Jergens Natural Glow Too!!

I'm hooked!! LOVE IT!!! Since I'm a redhead I've tried a lot of them out there and this is the first fool proof one I've found. I had nice color after one application too!! (nice color for me that is)

I've done the Mystic Tan where you stand in a booth and get sprayed - before the Jergens that was the best I had found but you could still end up streaky and MUST exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. It took me nearly 5 visits before I had figured out all kinds of little tricks to get it the best that I could.

Is the Jergens Natural Glow a self tanner? Sound good. I am a redhead too seeking to look a bit less ghostly pale come summertime.

I think I'd only recommend the Mystic Tan type solution if you can find someone who will spray you, instead of standing in an automated sprayer. I had a coworker who did this as a business. She would add a personal touch by examining the areas, and do some shading, contoring in the appropriate areas.

Thank you for this thread! I am so pale they call me casper and now that I am getting buff I plan to wear shorts and halter tops this summer and need some color. I bought the Jergens a few days ago and have a slight bit of color starting, very foolproof. Take care.

Jergens Natural Glow is a tanner!

All the magazines always say mix tanner with moisturizer to get less streaking - I had tried this on my own in the past with no luck.

Jergens has taken it a step further and mixed the tanner for you with moisturizer!! I was skeptical at first because it didn't have the immediate bronzer to make sure you had even coverage - I though "uh oh - good thing I'm trying this when it's still cold outside!!" But no worries - I had ZERO issues with streaking!!

hrmmmm.... I just picked up mine at Costco this weekend - hubby has the receipt. I got two big things of the body kind 7.5 oz each and then one medium tube of the face stuff. No idea what the price was - it was somewhat of an impulse buy/grab as my kids were running off in the other direction. I thought I had remembered reading about it in one of my mags and wanted to give it a try!

I will try and find out for ya and get back!
