sunless tanner we’ll use every day.

If you love beauty products, you know Completely Bare for its great waxing tools. If you love really-bad-slash-really-good TV, you know Completely Bare because of its founder, the Real Housewife Cindy Barshop.  But we're obsessed for something a little different: their Model Tan formula.

We got our hands on a bottle of their moisturizing bronzer, and followed the relatively simple instructions.  (Exfoliate or shave, dry your skin completely, then apply.)   In our experience, the promise of a no-streak formula was actually true.  We could have lived without the tiny bit of shimmer that comes with the solution, but the fact that it went on brown instead of orange made up for it. 

After three days, we have a tan.  An honest-to-goodness, "I'm not a vampire, I swear," kind of tan.  The fact that it's safe and easy makes the $36 price tag basically worth it.  Also the fact that the bottle is big enough, it'll last us all summer.
