Scent Away
We love everything about a good self-tanner—except the smell (you know the one: a little sweet, a little earthy, very funky). That odor and the bronze color are produced when a self-tanner's active ingredient, dihydroxyacetone, reacts with amino acids in the skin. Chemists have valiantly tried to make a self-tanner that produces the "tanned" color but not the smell, and finally, Jergens has succeeded. Its Natural Glow products (like the Daily Moisturizer, $9; drugstores) now contain odor-absorbing compounds and a light floral fragrance that completely eliminate the annoying self-tanner scent. And the subtle bronze tint to our skin? Perfect as ever!
