Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer REVIEW

I've honestly never been a huge fan of the regular Jergens Natural Glow line (well except for the Natural Glow SPF20 Facial Moisturizer), but this product was surprising.
It comes in two shades: Light to Medium and Medium to Tan skin tones. I bought the Medium to Tan because that's all that was available at my Kroger (this stuff has been HARD TO FIND since it's so new). Anyway, I've used it twice so far and it's very much un-like any other self tanning product I've ever tried (and trust me, I've tried them all).
First of all, there is no typical self tanner smell. I actually thought it had no strong smell whatsoever (Jergens is known for it's obnoxiously scented self tanning products). It's the lightest, cleanest smell. However, when you smooth it onto your skin, the scent actually disappears which is cool. First, you shake it up really well and dispense a small amount into your palm. It's best to start out with less than you think you need because since it's a foam, it expands in your hands. It's very similar in texture to that of a thick hair mousse. It really absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves no stickiness, which is what makes it unique. However, I feel that as a "daily moisturizer", it's a little light. My skin feels soft after applying it, but I still feel like I need something more moisturizing. Since it does sink into the skin so quickly though, you can definitely apply a light moisturizer to areas that still feel dry.
About the results, I've noticed absolutely no streaks whatsoever. However, I'm used to using self tanning products and am careful about applying it. I've used it twice and can already see a difference. Not a HUGE difference or anything, but very subtle and natural. I feel like if I used it everyday, it could get to be a bit much, so I might switch to the Light to Medium formula. Or, keep the Medium to Tan formula and just use it every few days.
Also, the can is a bit small. I feel like if I truly used this product everyday, it would be gone in no time. For $8.99, I feel like the can should be a little larger. But that's really my only complaint!

  2. I think I'll go get some of this. I don't use any tanning products because of "I'm orange!" stories. xD But this.. I might just have to try!

  3. Hi Tiffany, I have been using this product for about two weeks now in the Light/Medium shade. I have found the application and color results to be very good. However, I agree with you that is not a good daily moisturizer. In fact, this product has severly dried out my already dry skin. I had to stop using it as frequently and I also had to switch to a richer moisturizer to combat the new dryness. It's a shame because I do find the application easy and the color results very natural. I would recomment this product to someone with very oily skin, but I myself am now on the search for a new tanner that is better for someone with dry skin.

  5. I've been using this in the fair/medium shade for a few days and it is hands down THE best self-tanning product I've ever used. It gives you fast results that are natural looking and has no smell until about 12 hrs after application and even then its super super faint. thanks for reviewing this product! i never would have picked it up otherwise, the foam made me skeptical. but now i think this will be the only self-tanning product i'll use from now on. plus the jergens natural glow healthy complexion daily facial moisturizer. its the 1st facial self-tanner that has worked well AND gives me SPF AND doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. goodbye versa spa! jergens is saving me so much money now haha :) thanks again for your review!

  7. Well I used this product and noticed a change after one day, I was slightly more tanned, but it was a weird light orangy tan, and then I used it another day and was practicly a carrot, especially in fluerescent lighting, (oops spelled that wrong) And I got made fum of at dance, worst of all the tan looked like it was sitting on my skin, like a had painted myself with 80's foundation, luckily it came off, I dont recomend this product if you are really fair!

  8. How long do you have to wait before you put your clothes on with this stuff so that it doesn't stain them? Maybe Tiffany you could do a tutorial on how you apply your sunless tanner? That would be great! :) :)

  9. Are you unable to cope with the wrinkles in your face? If your facial deformity is making you unattractive in front of your hubby and he is drifting away from you, then it is time for you to find out an appropriate solution. A host of skincare treatments are available to erase the wrinkles from your face completely but if you opt for the Revitol cream, the look of your face would be entirely changed and the lines on your face would be a matter of a bygone era. Revitol cream is a product of the Revitol company and all Revitol natural skincare products are available for you at www.herbsncures.com/.

  10. I was skeptical yet excited to try this product. I'm as fair as they come and I thought I would notice a subtle change. Well, my face seems a little darker as well as parts of my arms. My legs are BLOTCHY and uneven.I'm 50/50 on this product the color on my chest area and arms is rather nice, but my legs and arms are partly blotchy. I wish I knew what I did wrong during the application.......I exfoliated, so that's not the problem maybe it's my technique...Sucks!! Oh well, maybe I'll resort to a tanning bed....I know I don't want to do that, but, I would really LOVE an even TAN for once.
