Quick Fix

It's Wednesday. Spring has hit Tennessee and even though it usually has to be a thousand degrees before I wear shorts if it's above 60, people rip out the flip flops. Well, not this chickie. But since everyone is showing off their bare skinned legs, today on the Tater Queens Fashion Wednesday, I wanted to share something I found that is Hot Snot. 

This stuff has been around for a while and I am sure a million posts written on it but not by me. So ha! I don't get out in the sun alot. And when I say that I mean I don't lie on a float for 6 hours and baste myself like a roasted turkey. I do get out in it, we have a swimming pool and I tan very easy. But I had a skin cancer removed a few years back and that hurt like a mother. Was it because of the sun? No. The tanning bed for which the placement of the cancer was (under my boob) and ever since then I don't take any chances. My body is prone to those types of cells and if I go out I slather on the sunscreen. I still get tan but I do it with protection. Sounds like your first lay. 

Any hoot, I bought this stuff about a month ago. I wanted to wear some capri pants so I decided I would whip this tan in a can out. I use self tanner but I needed something quick because my legs were white as a powdered donut. The Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs did the trick. 

I first shaved my legs, yes that's a miracle, and then I sprayed it on my dry skin. This stuff went on smooth. It didn't take much. I didn't have one streak. Not one and it had a great color. I used the medium glow. It does have a little shimmer to it, but I put a little lotion on after it had dried and it was awesome. I am sure you could lotion up before you spray it but be sure the lotion is absorbed into your skin. I washed my hands with soap and water and it came right off like last nights prom dress. It also actually stayed on my legs for two days. I recommend this if you are in a rush and need to get our tan on. Now, it is a little pricey at $11.99 a can, but I still have a ton left over. 

This Queen gives it 5 out of 5 taters. I actually will probably use this on my whole body if needed. So, prom girls save your money and  your skin because believe me needles in a boob hurt, get this tan in a can. You can hike that dress up and dance the night away and not look like two spaghetti noodles just out of the hot water.

This is your fashion advice on this Wednesday edition. Have you ever used this before? Whatcha think?

Queens out o' here,

  1. The only "tanning" method I've ever tried is the Jergen's lotion that gradually makes you look tan. I like it because it's harder to mess up than something that makes you all tan at once. A real tan is out of the question for me--I've never once been to a tanning bed and I prefer to stay covered up at the beach (because I live in Michigan, and the beach is always cold!!)

  4. So cool- great to know! I will need to get some to try out. I also use the jergens lotion because it doesnt streak and not make me look like orange oompa loompa. I've had 2 moles removed that were cancerous and they DO hurt like a motha!! I'm a very pale Indian- Mexican! LOL

  5. Damn skin cancers. I'm so scared of them and I burn instead of tan so I need to get this tan in a can. I usually wear my pasty pasterson skin with pride but a tan is always nice! I just always streak the rub on tanners, so....

  6. I've always been scared of self tanners! That was until last year when I started using the Jergens lotion! But the smell is a little strong! Does this stuff have a strong smell?

  9. I said to my housemate at the weekend I needed someone to recommend a self tanning lotion/spray to me as I'm clueless, thank you! I want to give my very white a bit of colour before I go to Rome so I'll definitely be giving this a go now.

  11. I've actually never used self tanner but have always wanted to. I'm scared of it rubbing off! So you recommend this one? I think I need it... my legs are super pale.

  16. Interesting... does it wipe off or does it like dye your skin? I also refuse to wear shorts if it is below 90 degrees!

  17. I don't use any tanners of any kind. I'm weird like that. I grease up with SPF 30+ when I'm out and about. I used to worship the sun and all products to make me darker, but a skin cancer scare a few years ago and made me think differently. :)

  18. You read my mind!! I was JUST in Ulta wondering which one to get. Yes, I use Xen Tam, but I wanted instant color. Does it stink? Bring on a tan in a can!

  19. I'm gonna try it. I've only used the spray on stuff that's at the tanning salon and I don't like it. Good recommendation! It's about that time.. Hopefully. I am ready for summer dresses and tan legs.
