Homemade Self Tanner: Pinterest Fail

It's sunny outside, and as I thought about wearing some capris, I remembered a homemade recipe for a self-tanner I'd pinned on Pinterest. I thought I'd give it a try!

It sounded simple:

2tbs cocoa powder (depending in how tan you want to be.)
Any moisturizer
an empty bottle 
mix it all together. Good for super light girls.

Here was the original photo:

Wow! I had to try it. So I gathered my supplies, mixed it up, spread it on...


And I was a chocolatey, sticky mess.

There was no tan. There was just stupidity.

Ok, so that was a fail. Please, don't try this at home, unless you feel like wasting a few good ingredients.

So... in light of the sunshine and "fair maiden" syndrome we have after 6 months indoors in Indiana, do you have any good self-tanner suggestions?
