I tan pretty well. If I spend enough time outside during the summer, I get pretty dark. This was me last summer, hanging out with my buddies, Wilbur and Orville Wright. That was after spending two weeks at the beach.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan gives your skin a flawless and luminous look. The long wearing foundation also includes SPF 20 protection. The self tanner provides a gradual tan. Color starts to develop on the first day with visible results starting at day 3. Color development plateaus on day 7 of consecutive use. Color begins to fade after 2-3 days after use of the product is discontinued. Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan is available in three shades: Light, Light/Medium and Medium.

I was sent both the Light/Medium and Medium shades to try. I found the Medium shade to be a little too dark for me. Maybe when I'm more tan in the summer, it would be a better match. But, then I really wouldn't need any makeup with a self tanner in it.
Before using the product, it's suggested you tap the bottle on a hard surface and press the pump several times. Pressing on the center of the pump helps to ensure that the makeup and self tanner come out evenly. I found one pump was plenty of product.

After mixing the two formulas together, I apply it to my face with my finger and blend with a Beauty Blender.

If you're looking to get a nice glow and a little bit of color, I think this would work nicely -- especially during the colder months, when you're inside more. Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan retails for $14.99 and is available where beauty products are sold. Or if you feel like it, you can use my affiliate link below!
