Found: Least Smelly Sunless Tanner

Here it is: Nivea Sunkissed Beautiful Legs shave-minimizing formula.

I had just posted about sunless tanning over 40, and one of my pet peeves is the smell of sunless tanners--doesn't seem to matter how much you spend or how niche/specialty a sunless tanner is, they all SMELL. I'm not big on shave minimizing formulas--when it comes to hair removal, I don't go half-ass; if it's coming off, I want it OFF, not "minimized"--so I normally wouldn't try this one. But, I am a fan of Nivea and have like their Sunkissed Firming Moisturizer lotion as a gradual tanner (no, not for the "firming"). So I tried this. Here's the low-down:

1. It gradually tans

2. It hardly smells (and the real test is not how it smells when you apply, but how it smells on your skin several hours later)

3. It's cheap (about $10 for 6.7 oz.)

4. It's easy to find

5. Contrary to its label, it can be used elsewhere (not just legs--but I'd skip your face)


  1. I am thoroughly convinced in this said post. I am currently searching for ways in which I could enhance my knowledge in this said topic you have posted here. It does help me a lot knowing that you have shared this information here freely.

  2. No doubt your blog article is great to me and most importantly it gives me information about my related issue.
