Fun in the Sun, er, Shade

I am not a sun person. I mean, yes, I prefer a sunny day to a rainy one, but I don’t like to sit in the sun and bake like so many Corn Flakes-encrusted chicken breasts. Or insert your favorite colorful baking simile here.

I was in Walmart yesterday (ya, so shoot me, the Target isn’t open for business yet) and stumbled upon a display of Jergens ® Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer. If you haven’t yet heard of this product, you’ve had your head in the sand. This is THE hot moisturizer right now, and it sells at regular Jergens lotion prices. The kicker? After about a week of using it, you’ll appear more tan. And apparently it’s a very natural looking tan.

I don’t claim to have any idea how it works, but I read about it in magazines, and how stores had completely run out and people were selling the stuff on eBay, of all things. So I’ve had half an eye open whenever I was in CVS, and sure enough, they were always out. So I bought it yesterday, and I’ll let you know how it works for me. I do want to note that unlike the other Jergens lotion that I was pushing here months ago, this one DOES have a scent to it. And remember, it doesn’t have any sunblock in it at all. Just use it like any other moisurizer, don’t slather it on. So that makes me a bit unhappy, but then again, if I can get a natural looking tan while living my preferred cave-dwelling lifestyle, it’s a good thing.
