I finally found some self-tanning moisturizer* that doesn’t smell like someone’s butt. Nair, on the other hand, still does. “Vanilla Smoothie” scent? Yeah, no. Besides, I’m not too keen on slathering some cream on my skin that will chemically melt my hair. Eep! (mutters to self: I don’t know what I was thinking.) But hey, time for my seasonal razor-blade replacement! I really have to get better about doing that more frequently.
*Hemp Bronzing Moisturizer from the Moist Products Company in St. Paul, MN. Woo, shout-out to my BFITWWW in the Twin Cities! Its bronzing efficacy remains to be seen, but at its worst, it’s a nicely-scented moisturizer with lots of “natural” ingredients (fruit and flower extracts; coconut, sesame, olive, sunflower, tea tree, and jojoba oils, and obviously hempseed oil) and it isn’t tested on animals. So it has that going for it.

Ya, cuz we don’t see da sun much in da winter, doncha know. It’s dark here, you betcha.
Guess I’ll be the only pasty white one of the bunch… oh well, sets off the red hair better. (At least that’s what I tell myself.)
In my experience, Nair creates worse razor burn than razors do. Hooray for the old fashioned way… and Bikini Zone.
