It's winter and your giftee is as pale as a white rabbit. Give a Hawaiian vacation with a fraction of the carbon footprint with Nature's Gate Glow Lotion self-tanner.

I approach self tanners with serious trepidation because a) I don't want to look like an orange popsicle and b) more than once my sensitive skin has screamed hell no -- responding with a massive full-body red and scaly rash. Believe me, it's not pretty.

However, I used Nature's Gate Glow Lotion (available for both light and medium skin tones) for months, and not only did my skin develop a nice glow as the name suggests, but no rash in sight. Success!

Plus, bottles and packaging are made with post consumer recycled material and the company partners with WaterAid. (Nature's Gate, $14)
