Garnier Skin Renew B.B. Cream, Yes Please!

Not wanting to waste money on a possibility I might like B.B. Cream, I decided to try Garnier's version. I instantly fell in love. It did not irritate my skin and left it glowing.....seriously! I now use it as part of my daily regime, putting it on after my moisturizer and before my Too Faced skin primer. Most use B.B. Cream as their primer but I like using it to conceal reddneds and even out my skin tone. The separate primer combined makes my makeup last for hours. When I am just puttering around the house or working out, B.B. Cream is a great option when you don't need makeup but want a little coverage. I use Light/Medium and my mom uses Medium/Dark. I really love the fact that this product doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.

Airbrush Tanning At Home.....worth it or not?

After deciding our spray tans at SunTan City were a bit expensive, we researched spray tanning at home. Many blogs and websites later, we chose Kahuna Bay spray tan formula in Kahuna Melange. We set up a booth in our basement with tarps, bought a paint airbrush from a home building supplier and we already had an air compressor. Since Kahuna Melange had bronzer already in it, we knew we didn't need bronzer drops. We coated our ankles, palms, toes and fingers with a scent free lotion to avoid super brown extremities. After about one hour of making sure we didn't miss any body parts, we waited and hoped for the best. We are now on day three and our tan is still present without streaks and we do not look like oompa loompas. We ordered the trial kit of original, dark and extra dark. I am liking the original. Being naturally fair skinned, I don't think I would want to go darker. I am going to try the darker colors on my mom, as she is darker complected, and see how those look. The VersaSpa formula at SunTan City always seems to vary in how good it looks. Lately it's worn off my skin in two days. After trying Kahuna Melange, I think my husband and I are going to stick with it and say farewell to SunTan City. Saving money and still looking good is always in style in my mind.
