Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer Review

Updated on January 14, 2013

Almost everyone wants to find that easy way to tan without harmful exposure to the sun. Some of us may have had bad experiences with sunless tanners in the past that have almost caused us to give up using them at all. Well here is a popular and affordable product that could help you get that tan you are looking for.

If you want a gradual, more natural look, this might be a tanner worth considering. I'll start by giving you a little background information on the product and then you can decide if it might be something that would work well for you.

Jergens Natural Glow Product Review

Jergens has produced many self tanning products throughout the years. They now offer a product called Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer which they claim will give you a gradual tan while providing rich hydration for your skin. The marketing material states that it will "Moisturize into a silky glow". Well, that sounds pretty good! Let's see what else they have to say.

The manufacturer says the formula will gradually create a natural-looking, streak free color using a subtle skin darkening complex. They also claim that it will dry quickly so you don't have to worry about it staining your clothes. This is a big selling point for me and I can see myself quickly becoming a fan if this is true!

Time to put it to the test!

Jergens recommends Natural Glow for women with fair to medium and medium to tan skin tones which pretty much describes me (I fall into the medium skin tone group). What you can take from this is that you may want to consider something else if you have fair skin or a very light skin tone.

My Experience with Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer

What I Liked:

The color was very natural and the product was easy to apply without streaking. It did in fact dry very quickly so I was able to get dressed almost right away, without worrying about it ruining my clothes. For me, that is always a big plus for a tanning product because I keep a busy schedule and don't have time to waste waiting around for a sunless tanner to dry.

When it comes to price, this product is tough to beat. It is affordable for just about anyone with a price right around $10.

What I Didn't Like:

Like other sunless self tanning products, Jergens Natural Glow has the active ingredient DHA. DHA is what actually reacts with the melanin on the skin causing your skin to tan. This ingredient can have a tendency to give off a bit of a chemical smell as it reacts with your skin and in my experience; that was exactly what I got. It wasn't overwhelming but it didn't smell good in my opinion. I'm just not a big fan of products that have a strong "self tanner" smell to them.

Overall Opinion:

This is a pretty good product if you are looking for something in the "value" price category. The color is good and the application process is quick and easy. I thought the quick dry time after the first application was impressive. That made it one of the more user-friendly sunless tanning products I have used in recent months. I didn't really care for the smell although it did diminish just a bit after a few days. If you are sensitive to the chemical smell of self tanning lotions, you probably will want to try something else.

There are plenty of great tanning products out there that you can use at home so if this doesn't sound like exactly what you are looking for, check out some of the other top-selling products on eBay or Amazon. You may even want to consider a spray tan or airbrush tanning product as well. I've had some very good success with both of those recently. With a little research, there is a good chance you will find something that works very well for you!
