Unused Coffee As A Sunless Tanner

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I bought a couple of rose bushes and had heard that you can put coffee grounds on them and it will help them flourish..
So I googled it to and came across this site.
It says (#5 on the list) that you can use coffee grounds or unused coffee as a sunless tanner. I tried it, and so far, so good..

How do you do it? Do you rub it on yourself or what?

I don't know about a sunless tanner but used coffee grounds sure work great on scratched wood furniture or wood floors!

I'm not sure if I want to go around smelling like Starbucks

But hey, if it works!

I dipped a clean sponge into the coffee, squeezed out excess and then smoothed it onto my legs. Let it sit for 20 minutes and then took a shower.

My legs are a smidge darker and I plan on doing it tomorrow too!

I didn't want to either... infact after the 20 mins was up, I was getting sick of the smell.
I went ahead and took a shower and it still colored my legs a bit...

I'll do it tomorrow and see if it makes them even darker
