Antidote Skin Care Summer Glow Self Tanner

SUMMER_SINGLE_SCALEI would not consider myself a self tanner expert, by any means. In fact, I might even go so far as to say novice. In the past I've only felt comfortable using the kind of self tanners that have a gradual effect and build up color over a number of applications, so that I couldn't really mess up. Well Sinead over at asked me to try her company Antidote Skin Care's new self tanning system and I had great success! Perfectly tan legs in October!

She sent me the Summer Glow Dark Self Tanning System, which includes a 6 oz. Summer Glow Dark Self Tanning Lotion,  along with a body scrub and 2 pairs of application gloves. I applied the lotion in the evening after a shower where I scrubbed my skin well and shaved my legs. Using the gloves to apply the lotion felt a bit funny at first, but I got the hang of it. It was so great not to worry about dying my hands brown in the process. The lotion is incredibly dark brown and so as you apply it, you know exactly what it is going to look like. It seems to apply as dark as it turned out (meaning it didn't develop over the next few hours) which was fine by me. The summer glow is a bit dark for my pale complexion, I think I would be more comfortable using their All Seasons Glow system, which is a shade lighter and can be built upon with a few applications.

The tan I got seems to last awhile, a least a week I think. It wasn't streaky at all either. I do recommend moisturizing your rough spots prior to application (knees, heels, elbows, etc.) I had to do a little scrubbing to get rid of some dark spots because I forgot! This is a great, very natural looking self tanner. It does take some time and concentration to apply it correctly, but the effort is worth the payoff - a gorgeous tan without the cancer!

Tan Lovely!

  1. I'm also a total self-tanner novice. Glad to hear there's a tanner out there that actually doesn't streak. Might have to check this out.

    I agree wholeheartedly with you Beth! But everyone should know that Antidote Skin Care has changed their name to Beautisol. It's still the same great product as before but the new name really rolls off the tongue.

    Say hello to no streaks or orange-ness!

    Go check it out!!

    There are a lot of things Tanner is saynig I agree with. I am about to graduate from the University of North Texas and I have to say that kids today don’t appreciate that they are receiving some of the best education assets in the world. They didn’t earn it. There was no sacrifice. What’s more is that no one is pushing them to appreciate it. The game is to go class as little as possible, do the work you absolutely have to and wait until you walk. Sometimes I felt challenged, but mostly it was a right of passage. Now I will be in the educated club. I have talked to many at other universities and I think that that is a consensus, not my lone opinion. Why is this? Does it have something to do with the fact that people have to sacrifice less and less. If someone is given something they don’t value it the way someone who earned it has and in the case of children being sent to school by their parents, that is a sacrifice. When I send my kids to school I am going to be so deep into them to get the best from their education that my dimes bought anyway. I ask though, if you have a lot of people who give of nothing, who no one in the family gives up anything will they appreciate it? Will they appreciate their opportunities that don’t exist in other places?There is one more thing that I want readers of your post to consider. We do NOT live in a society where people who do not come from money can’t get an education. I did not come from money and no one in my family has it. What I did was join the military. I earned my degree (first) by serving the country until it felt the need the repay my efforts. Two tours in Iraq and many nights away from my family gave me an opportunity that my families wealth couldn’t.I also feel that education is privilege. If there were an infinite amount of it we could give it for free. Unfortunately we have a finite number of resources in the form of our colleges and educators, therefore there must be a cost. Whether you believe that cost should be paid for with wealth or with work, education in America is kept fair by being a privilege requiring sacrifice.
