I’m not sure if it’s a Canada-wide phenomenon or not, but at least in Toronto this summer, there’s only one way to describe the weather: crappy.

As I mentioned here, I’m not a tanner anymore, but even still—by the halfway point of summer, I’ve usually got a bit of colour. This year? Nada.

Time to pull out the faux glow. Just when you thought there couldn’t be any more innovations in self-tanners, there are—really:

I have been using the Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer with Firming all summer and I am loving it. The colour is really good and I like the smell. Shoppers does a pretty good Life Brand version of it too!
