If you keep up with the 24-7 Style blog, you know I’m a huge self-tanner…either through sprays or creams, foams or any of the other huge array of self-tanners out there. Surprisingly, one thing I haven’t tried – self-tanning pads, so I, of course, jumped at the chance to give JUVA’s Self Tanning Pads ($30 for a set of 15) a whirl. Dr. Bruce Katz, Board Certified Dermatologist and Director of the JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York, developed the pads himself with a goal of achieving the ultimate faux glow.
What’s great about these self-tanners, your skin is left beautifully bronzed, no streaks, no unnatural qualities of orange hues, and the tan only takes a couple of hours to develop. Plus, it’s odorless, non-comedogenic, non-oily, gentle, and free of parabens, sulfates, GMO’s, synthetic dyes & phthalates.
What you’ll love: the color! It truly is a natural brown bronze that leaves you with a kissed-by-summer-sun glow. Also it dries so quick – not sticky or greasy at all!!!
What you’ll wish for: bigger pads. One is perfect for face, neck and then-some, but hey, we’re lazy…although unrealistic, it would be nice for a towel size towelette for our entire body!
If you’ve been disappointed with self-tanners in the past, this is a must-try!
