I think we can all agree that self tanning is an effing nightmare; the streaks, the smudges, the stains...one ultra-giant sh*tshow. Leave it to the professionals or book a trip to Bali. If I have to be caught orange-handed self tanning, I'd rather keep it Casper-friendly and drop the bottle than look like a friggin' Oompa Loompa.
Until of course, Karora Cosmetics came knocking on my door.
I was skeptical at first, because it was actually my super rugged - and not in a hot way - FedEx delivery man who was knocking (and I doubt he had very much experience perfecting the art of self tanning) with a giant box filled up of Karora.
As I opened up the box of colorful Karora bottles wrapped up in teal and royal purple tissue paper (love the jewel tone color scheme, btw) I was super excited to get started. I immediately stripped off all my clothes.
It wasn't until I was standing in the bathroom bare naked that I thought to myself, "Am I actually going to perform this self tanning procedure on myself? I need to open up a bottle of champagne. No, wait, I need to be sober for this. This is the fate of my body's canvas we're talking about." FML.
Anyway, I didn't have all night, so I read (sort of) the directions and balls to the walls, figuratively speaking, begun to God forbid, self tan.
And you know what? The results rocked.
Oh, and it wasn't because of me. I can assure you of that. It was 100% the product that left me an amazing glowing so-not fake tan that looked so much more real than the lady who always goes in front of me in yoga wearing super short shorts sporting little white creases underneath her perfect butt. Score!
Here's what I used...feel free to copy and repeat...
*Karora also threw in some amazing bronzing towels which helped the process (and the palms of my freshly manicured hands) immensely. These are a necessity!
P.S. Order online, pop into the nearest Ulta, or head straight to Bendels.
...cause it's that good, duh.
