Can This Body Bronzer Give Us A Glow Without Turning Our Skin Orange?

So, self-tanner: We're a little hesitant about it. Our assistant beauty editor Tara in particular says the smell reminds her of fried food restaurants, and now that she's said it, that's all we can think about. However, it's been such a long winter, and we just want to look beach-ready before we actually hit the beach — is that so wrong?

Lorac's new Tantalizer Body Bronzing Spray makes some claims that sounded pretty promising: It's purportedly long-wearing, water- and transfer-resistant, and — perhaps most appealingly — "mess-free." It comes with a puff, so rather than having to just spray ourselves down and hope for the best, we can buff it on and ensure an even distribution. Since our beauty motto is pretty much along the lines of "try anything twice," Tara was obviously up for a test run. Watch to find out her verdict, and then let us know: Will you be buffing your bronze on this summer?
