good, light tanning products for fair skin?

I have fair skin, and I burn pretty easily. That being said, I cannot tan to save my life. Also, because I burn easily, I only wear shorts when I go to the gym, and my legs are slightly paler(my upper body gets sun, so I'm only slightly darker, but not transparent). What might be some good sunless tanners that don't look fake, don't get very splotchy, and would only give me something light?

    I like using Jergens Natural Glow tanning moisturizer. Its subtle but really does make the greatest difference on my legs. It leaves them with a light tinted color of tan and I've had lots of complements on have great colored legs. LOL! I would recommend the one for fair skin.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I also burn easily, as I have fair skin, so I don't tan at all in the sun - just burn. I hear that the Jergen's Natural Glow lotion works well to give you some tan/color. People have raved about it a great deal, so it must do what it claims to do - :D You have to use it every day for about a week, spreading it on your skin. It's a lotion, so it not only moisturizes your skin, but gives you a nice, even color as you moisturize. There are three types: one for fair skin, one for medium skin tones and one for dark. Choose the one for fair skin and use it for a week. I'm going to try it myself. I used to work in retail, so I can tell you that, when it first come out, it sold like crazy - couldn't keep it on the shelves. Hope this helps.

    I have very fair skin too. Iv used other tanning products, but iv found St.tropez everday moisturiser works best. It builds a gradual tan, and moisturises at the same time. You can buy two types, fair - medium and medium - dark. It costs usually £12 and theres quite a lot in a bottle. You can buy it from boots, department stores, ebay, online shops. :)

    i would just use a simple tanning lotion, it keeps the tan looking very even and gets darker daily. Of course it also keeps your skin moisturised. It is a great product and works wonder with fair skin.

    You can purchase this lotion at a super store or beauty supply store.

    Best of luck!

    Look on HSN .com TanTowels. Works with your skin tone--and you can read customer reviews. Worth a try--saw it on HSN TV and I would try it b/c iam very fair. and they say its sooo easy. Hard to make a mistake and you cant get too dark or splotchy on elbow and ect.
