Supergoop! Gradual Self-Tanning Review

Supergoop! Self-Tanning Mousse Review

I’m so excited about Supergoop! Gradual Self Tanning Mousse because it’s the answer to a little ongoing internal battle I’ve been having with myself for a while.

When using self tanner, do you moisturize first? After? Both? Then … how soon after do you apply sunscreen? Since my life changing battle with Melanoma, sunscreen has become a necessary and important part of my daily routine, but where does it fall into your beauty routine when you’re also moisturizing and self tanning?

Here are some ways to ensure that you get the best fake tan in the winter months:  Read more
