Spring is upon us and it is just a matter of time before girls start driving to the tanning salons to get that perfect summer tan.

If you’re anything like me, saving money for college and summer break is definitely top priority, which is why I decided to save myself some money and try Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer.

I’m not going to lie, at first I thought this product would never live up to the hype.  How could a lotion give you a natural glow and moisturize your skin? Well I must say that after using this product for a week I have noticed a difference in my skin tone.

Let me start off by telling you the not-so bright side of this product. First, the tedious process of applying the lotion and having to wait 10 minutes for it to dry was not the most fun, but it’s better than staining your clothes.

The lotion does have a distinct smell that makes you wonder if people around you can smell it too. However, on the bright side, it did give me my desired tan look in about seven days for the small price of $8.50.

This lotion, if applied as directed, will definitely last you a long time, so you get your money’s worth. If you want to look like Snooki however, I might suggest buying in bulk or just going straight for the spray tan.

To discuss the precautions of using tanning lotions and other tanning methods I decided to consult dermatologist and local philanthropist Norman Levan.

Side effects like rashes and itchy skin can sometimes occur when using lotions or solutions on your skin.

Levan said that it’s because there are various agents in the product that can be irritating to certain people. He said if this occurs to stop using the product immediately.

When asked if he believes tanning is a good idea he said no.

“It’s not good to get a tan because it ages your skin,” he said.

He does believe, however, that spending time outside and having fun at the beach should not cause people to fear the sun.

Whether you plan on spending your summer at the beach or in summer school, Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer will help you achieve that perfect summer tan.
