I am generally fair skinned and do not tan well in the sun or regular tanning beds BUT the past 2 years I have been getting in a bed that has bronzing bulbs (not the bronzing tanning lotions which turn you orange) and I use tingle factor lotions, it takes me about a month to really see a big difference.

There is a product called XEN and I have only been able to find it at Nordstrom and it comes in at least 2 shades. It truly looks wonderful and I am a pretty fair skinned person!

Tanning lotion works pretty well on me. I can get somewhat pale during the winter months, but I've never had any problems with tanning lotion

Dove tanning moisturizer is inexpensive and works pretty well. Get the light shade and blend well.

It will depend on your undertones and prep work. I have yellow in my skin(Caucasian/Amer.Indian) and it makes most all tanning stuff look too yellow or orange. The dove energy glow light is the closest thing to natural I have seen on my yellow toned skin. Normally I am very pale, don't burn, turn golden brown with natural tanning. I find mixing the Dove with your lotion 50/50 makes for a more even application/pay off and looks VERY natural. It also worked on the s.o.'s arms and face. He has some light freckles on his arms (blonde Irish) and it blended them in naturally. He has pink toned pale that never tans at all. He just get sun poisoning...purple.

I am very fair and all tanners have worked great, just make sure you pick the lightest one. The best by far was the air brush spray tan I got. It was FABULOUS! Looked so natural, just giving me a bit of glow. I wish I could afford to get that done regularly!

Kinda - she was at the MAC counter buying lip gloss. She wants to make sure and have a shiny smile as she goes to collect her welfare checks!
