Last night I got my tan on and it looks great!

I am very pale (think Casper the ghost, but with freckles) and have not been out in the sun this summer, so was worried about applying a self tanner. I've tried self tanners in the past with mixed results and it is not a product I use regularly.

The secret to a perfect sun-kissed tan? ...a FIRMING self tanner without the SUN!

"No doubt having a tan makes you feel thinner, sexier and healthier. Now you can add a gorgeous, deep golden tan to your skin while firming - without risking the damaging effects of the sun." actifirm

The Actifirm formula contains exclusive patent-pending ActiMatrix, an ingredient that helps firm your skin. The golden tint comes from carbohydrates derived from beets and sugarcane (DHA), for a safe and natural color. This product contains many skin-loving plant-based botanicals such as Aloe, Rosemary,
Chamomile and Echinacea to leave your skin smooth, soft and hydrated. I also notice these ingredients:  Olive, Coffee, Lavender and Japanese Bamboo.

Here's the skinny (it's firming, get it?):
I exfoliated my body first using this,  rinsed off & towel dryed. Self tanner application is best on smooth skin. I poured product in my hand and rubbed in a circular motion, over-lapping and covering all areas. I was a little afraid when I saw the dark color, but I assure you it fades as you blend it in. Actifirm Firming Self Tanner colors immediately with a "color guide", leaving a golden tan to guide application. Color darkens over the next couple of hours.

Tips: Wear gloves when applying, I didn't and should have. Wash hands immediately after applying. I used exfoliator scrub on my hands to remove excess color. Allow product to dry fully before dressing.

I love this product and would purchase it again. Application was easy and the color turned out beautifully.

Actifirm Firming Self Tanner can be purchased here. Currently it is being offered at an introductory price. Please follow @actifirm on twitter and visit them on facebook.

Goddesses, get your glow on!
