My Memorial Day
was a complete washout! No, it didn’t rain a drop. In fact, it was sunny and ninety glorious degrees. You see, after the non-stop activity of a family cookout the day before I was eager to sneak off for some quiet time at the neighborhood pool. I packed my beach bag, tossed my towel over my shoulder and hurried out the door in hopes of securing prime poolside real estate in the shape of a chaise. But my dreams
of early summer bliss came to an abrupt halt when I caught a glimpse of something very, very white Ã¢Â?Â¦oh no, I realized it was ME. My normally “light” skin was extraordinarily white next to my black swimsuit. I looked so pale. Pasty. Lifeless. I was the Memorial Day washout.
After that uncomfortable awakening, I promised that I wouldn’t let myself get caught off guard again. With a full time job and a busy family schedule, who has the time to worry about the hue of body parts that are usually neatly hidden away for nine months out of the year? I needed a convenient, healthy way to get some color – and get it fast! Short of a trip to the tropics what was a girl to do? I found Skin so Soft Satin Glow Body Moisturizer in a friend’s Avon catalogue and decided to give it a try. It promised to “soften my skin while enhancing the color to bring out a soft, natural glow.”
I tried it that evening and was pleasantly surprised. Unlike most tanning creams I have had experience with in the past, it had a fresh, pleasant scent. The lotion was rich and absorbed quickly into my dry, thirsty pores. After applying the product I simply washed my hands and got dressed; there was no worry about finding any orange-colored residue on my clothes as it dried almost instantly. Having sensitive skin, I was concerned of the possibility of a skin reaction, but I experienced none whatsoever.
A few days later I was pleased to notice a subtle sun-kissed change in my skin tone. Two weeks passed and I had achieved a radiance that looked so natural, even my husband commented that I must have snuck in some sunning during my lunch hour. The July 4th holiday is right around the corner and this time I am prepared to take my place poolside since Skin so Soft Satin Glow brought the tropics to my door! If you don’t have the chance to take time out of your busy life to work on your tan, give this product a try. Skin so Soft Satin Glow Daily Body Moisturizer is available in shades for fair and medium skin tones through Avon at www.Avon.com at the suggested retail price of $8 for an 8.4-ounce tube.
