Make Your Own "Tan in a Can"- FAIL

I don't know about you, but a couple of my friends have pinned ways to make your own Tan in a Can. It could go by other names, but that's what I call it.

Well, with Springtime here, I thought it would be a good time to try it. I honestly knew it wouldn't work going into it- cocoa powder & lotion. Seriously? Hmm. Ok, I'll try it. Haha.

How'd it work? For me... It was AWFUL!! Hello streak city. It was a mess from the beginning. I will give it this, it smelled yummy. I think the worst part was that I used up my Vanilla Lace lotion from VS. Boo. Pregnant brain decided to use yummy lotion instead of plain lotion. I'm super smart.

Mmmmm, streaky leg cracks!
So not hot....
Here is the original pin:
Anyways. Didn't work for me. Wish it did, because her legs look fab! But hey, it might work for others, but I will stick to my usual tan in a can.
I use Jergens Natural Glow. Yummm. However, I know a couple of my friends tried it, and it turned them orange. So. Good luck! :)
This was the day my husband came home from his deployment in 2010. See the legs- hard to tell- but they're not too crazy tan. This is the only picture I could find that I know I was for sure wearing the tan in a can.


  1. Too bad it didn't work - but it was a good laugh!

  2. Boo! I had this pinned..I tried million dollar tan.. I seriously looked like I stepped right of the set of jersey shore...looks like jergens will be next on my list! I love the last pic bytheway! That dress is so cute... You need a fashion blog ;) you always have such cute clothes
