Product(s) of the week

Not trying to cheat, but I have 2 products this week since they are semi-related..

Now that it's hot as balls summer is here, we spend A LOT of time outside, mainly in a kiddie pool. I have already subjected you all to photos of my scary white skin, so being outside isn't that bad since I will have a little color.

However, being blonde haired, blue eyed, and super freckly - I burn in about 10 minutes.

My delimma is that I HATE the smell of sunscreen. Blarg.

I found this and it's like heaven:

It's sunscreen but it smells like sweet, coconutty tanning lotion. I slather this on fresh out of the shower and re-apply before we go outside and it's fabulous. I don't know about you, but Hawaiian Tropic always reminds me of my mom tanning on our back patio and slathering on the oil. I love that coconut smell!
Hawaiian Tropic has also re-designed their after sun line, which I plan on checking out before we go on vacation in July.

When I am not in the sun but need a little pick-me-up, I have been using this:
Jergens Natural Glow - FOAM.

Now, I have used the lotion off and on for years and eventually, you smell like sunless tanning lotion.
BUT - with this you don't. Honestly. I have used it for a week straight and never smelled that weird smell.

There you go ladies - my summer tool kit for pretty, tan skin.

I am a strange olive under tone in my skin and my hubby is pasty white! I use that natural glow on both of us and it's great! I can't wait to try the sun screen!
