Jergens Natural Glow is a line of moisturizers that say they can level up your skin tone without the need to go tanning outside or at a tanning booth. With so many sunless tanners on the market promising the same thing, how do these measure up against competing products?
It’s a great idea to get color on your skin without resorting to the harmful effects of the sun and tanning beds. But unfortunately most of the products out there that are supposed to deliver the right look fall short. Either they make you look orange, or they make you look fake, or they flat out don’t work.
Jergens claims that their Natural Glow lineup will give your skin a naturally tanned look in a matter of days, without the smell that typically accompanies sunless tanners, and also has versions that tone and revitalize your skin as well.
Since Jergens is already a big name in the moisturizing world, they’ve come into the game with a leg up on the competition, since they don’t have to establish themselves as a success. They also have some initial positive reactions to these products which only leads to more and more people trying it out.
Jergens Natural Glow products are priced higher than regular moisturizers, but less than some of the other sunless tanning products on the market. You’d expect them to cost more than regular moisturizing lotions, since it is supposed to do more for you. We found them for about a dollar an ounce at Amazon, but they are available at online and offline retailers nationwide.
You’ll have to stick with this one a bit longer than those tanners that give same-day results. However, you should notice that it’s working right from day one so you get that positive reinforcement and encouragement to keep on with the plan.
The feedback on Jergens Natural Glow has been mostly positive, with many users saying that out of all of the gradual darkening products they tried, this one worked best for them. If you’ve ever tried some of the tanners that take you from pale to tanned, you have probably noticed that they often give a fake look, by going too dark, or streaking. The benefit of taking a gradual approach is that you typically don’t get the streaking, and the color has a more natural tone. You can also have more control over how dark you get by simply stopping the applications when you reach your desired color, and then simply maintaining that color.
One interesting feature that we noticed is that they’re not really going for a super dark tan here, but more of that natural gold look that appears when you get just the right amount of sun. It’s the color that many strive for, but few attain because it takes the right amount of sun exposure on the right type of skin. If you don’t have the time, energy, desire, or skin type to try to get this perfect hue, it only makes sense to try to get it from a bottle instead.
A common complaint on the earlier versions was the smell. They’ve since fixed that, so as long as you’re buying the new and improved formula you shouldn’t be having the distinct odor that comes with a lot of sunless tanners on the market. It’s good that they are continually trying to make the product better as it goes along, since most companies simply release a product and never try to upgrade or improve the formula. It shows that they are serious about making this the go-to moisturizer for those looking to darken their skin without damaging it.
Final Jergens Natural Glow Review
We’re giving Jergens Natural Glow our Thumbs Up rating, as it has proven itself to work as long as you know what you’re trying to accomplish and this fits in with your plans. If you are trying to darken up quickly, like for a special event or one-time occurrence, this is probably not for you. But if you have time to let it gradually take effect, you should be pleased with the results and it can help you to get that coveted tanned look without having to resort to damaging your skin by spending too long outside or on a tanning bed.
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and should be respected as such. While being tanned is in style, it’s not something worth sacrificing your health over. Looking for ways to tan without the sun is a great idea, and since many of the products in this Jergens line also contain an SPF, you’ll be making your skin look great, and protecting it at the same time.
