***BLOGMANIA Sponsor Spotlight*** Famous Dave’s Self Tanning Lotion

by Gina on March 22, 2011

I have tried nearly every self-tanning lotion product that you can buy from your local drug store, and I always end up either too orange or streaky. I keep hoping that I will find a product that will give me a beautiful golden summer glow without all of the time spent in the sun, not to mention the damaging rays, but I haven’t been able to find one that I am pleased with.

I hadn’t ventured online to see the types of products that were available until recently, and I starting seeing buzz about Famous Dave’s. I thought this would be a wonderful product to feature in my Summer Lovin’ package during Blogmania (Apr. 9-11), as long as it met my expectations.

Dave was generous enough to send me two bottles of his brand new Gold Label Moisture Tan in “medium”; one for me to try, and one to give away!

Some features of Famous Dave’s Moisture Tan- Gold Label:

  • NO Fragrance
  • NO Phenoxyethanols
  • NO Sodium Laureth / Lauryl Sulfates
  • NO Triethanolamines
  • NO Stearic Acids
  • NO Mineral Oils
  • NO Animal Testing
  • NO Parabens
  • Added Bronzer Color Guide

Paraben free with added bronzer now lets you see exactly where you’re applying the lotion, resulting in a gorgeous all-over tan.

This was one of the best self tanning products that I have tried! In my opinion, if you are spending close to $30 on a bottle of self-tanner, it better be an excellent quality product! One of the things I liked best about this product is you could tell immediately where you already applied the lotion and what areas needed more, or needed further massaging, since it comes pre-tinted. The tan does not show up immediately, but it gradually builds up over time. I also found that my tan lasted for a solid three days before I noticed it begin to wear off.

I made sure to massage the tanner very thoroughly into my skin, as directed, and avoided applying extra product on my knees and ankles. You really cannot massage this lotion in TOO much; the more, the better. Results are best if you apply this product to freshly washed, exfoliated skin. As the product began to wear off on the third day I had NO streaking like the other tanning products I have tried! I have to say, I was very impressed with Famous Dave’s formulation, and could definitely see spending more for a quality product like this!

I will be honest with you and say that even though this product is listed as fragrance free, there is a slight odor that you may notice that seems to come with all self-tanning products. The scent is not from any special fragrance added to the product, but is present in one of the active ingredients. It doesn’t bother me at all, but if you are very sensitive to smells, it could potentially bother you.

I am so excited that one of you will have the opportunity to try Famous Dave’s if you participate in our Blogmania event! Please visit FamousDavesTanner.com for more information on his full line of products. You can also visit them on Facebook!

Thanks for this posting. I have (had) stopped buying a lot of those products because of the same reasons you mentioned so it’s nice to know there is an alternative. I like it that it is colored so you know where it is and isn’t!
