I'm stunned. Absolutely stunned. Thanks to MUA, I ended up purchasing this Ocean Potion Ever Glow Lotion. Got it at Walmart for $3.88 so I picked up the last two bottles in the store. Where do I begin?
OK. I'm the queen of fake tan. Years ago, I started fake tanning on my legs only because of my aversion to pantyhose. The first fake tan I ever used was Clarins and it stunk to high heaven and was orangey, but that was years ago. Anyway, due to skin cancer, I do make an attempt to not bake in the sun anymore. It just isn't good for the skin--I really limit my sun time these days. I've used L'Oreal (and like it), Jergens (like it), Coppertone and more. Some leave me orange, some leave me looking kind of dirty, some dry out my skin, some stain my clothing--but every single one of them smell bad. Every. Last. One.
Ocean Potion Ever Glow does not smell bad. It is true, the scent is like a refreshing orange creamsicle..the scent is very nice and fades after a while, which is great! The pump in the bottle gives you a nice amount to spread around. Leaves skin soft and glowing. But...does it work to "tan" your skin? Well..it does. However it does not give you a dark tan, and it doesn't leave your arms and legs looking dirty and streaky. It gives you a very light gradual tan--trust me, I have naturally fish-belly-white skin with freckles. Over the years I prayed that the freckles would grow and blend so that I would have a natural tan, but it never happened. Ever Glow really gives you a nice color. Not orangey at all. Just enough color to not have to wear those horrid panty hose and it just makes your skin look nice.
I gave this five stars and did so because I do like the lighter color. If you are looking for a fake tanner that is super-dark, this is not for you, but if you want a hint of tan to make your skin look healthier, then run to the store and grab this!! It is amazing that a product so inexpensive has managed to be void of that fake tan smell--amazing! The packaging is nice an handy and I absolutely will purchase this again.
Great find--thank you so much fellow MUA'ers for helping me in my quest for great product!
