I've got to tip you off about this newish Regenerist Touch of Sun UV Defense Regenerating Lotion ($15.19) from Olay. It has become nothing short of a cult craze in the United Kingdom and Australia. (However, be warned, if you are a reader from across the pond or down under you'll want to know that this gem may also be called Olay Total Effects 7x Touch of Sun. )
Not only does it claim to moisturize with a light, non-greasy formula, gradually create a non-streaky and natural looking facial tan, improve the condition of the skin in seven days and help diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, but it also contains SPF 15. I personally haven't tried it yet, but I've been reading tons of reviews and I feel obliged to share both the pros and cons with you. To find out what they are,
- CONS: Apparently if you don't wash your hands really well, the stains can cause major stains — even on your fingernails! Also, it's slightly orangey and if you are really pale, steer clear from using it daily or you'll turn an unnatural shade.
- PROS: Believe it or not, it doesn't streak, and the moisturizing aspect of it is getting great reviews. Many feel that it is light and absorbs quickly. Also, doesn't have that icky, self-tanning cream smell.
