Fake Bake

As I have absolutely, positively no baby making news (thanks radiology department for taking FOREVER on the HSG results being sent to my doc), I decided to tell you all about how I smell.

I am a natural redhead, which therefore equates to being a ghostly shade of pale -excluding my freckles, which seem to merge when I am “tan.”

So after sitting next to this crazy tan Texan girl on the flight home last week, I decided to get tan too, via Jer.gens. Yesterday, I shelled out $12 for the face moisturizer and body firming lotion with “glow.” For a gentle, slowly forming tan-like appearance. Or whatever the bottles so claim.

This morning I smell.

You know, that funky tanning lotion smell? Ok, so the face lotion, not bad. No stinkiness. My legs. I swear the guy I interviewed this morning could smell the funktasticness of my loofahed, shaved and greased up legs. And I know I am likely the only person who could smell it. But still.

I smell.

I guess if it works and I have sun-kissed glow without the skin damage it will be worth it. Smell and all.

    I have never found the nerve to try one of those tanning creams. I guess it is safe to say that I am not missing much (well, except for a funny smell.)

    Have you decided whether or not the tan is worth it? I am curious…

    Good luck with the tan! 🙂

    I’m proud to be pasty. Although I did try tan-in-a-bottle once, and I looked like an unevenly dyed Easter egg.
