Shopping: Tanning Products That Smell Good

Fact: Everyone looks better with a tan.

Another fact: While we can all benefit from a little sunless color, it's the notorious tanning product smell that scares most away. And while tanning has come a long ways since the early days, there are still a lot of products out there that smell less than appealing.
