Birchbox Breakdown

From painful sunburns to zebra-like streaks, tanning blunders litter our beauty wrap sheets. On a mission to expunge these past crimes, this lightweight daily lotion glides on easily and gradually creates a convincing sun-touched hue. Swap your daily moisturizer for this bronzer to maintain a fresh-from-the-beach tan—bikini season or not.

How it Works

Key active ingredient DHA reacts with your skin’s amino acids to produce natural-looking brown pigments. There are two skin-matching options: Medium, best for fair to medium skin tones, and Dark, perfect for olive to dark skin tones. Use daily for a deep, gorgeous glow or before special occasions for a boost of radiance.

How to Use

For best results, use post-shower on clean, exfoliated skin. Massage a generous amount of lotion into your skin and let the formula sink in before putting on your clothes.

great tanning lotion

I sampled this self-tanning lotion and it's now in my favorites! A small amount goes a long way when applying. It is a white lotion when applied and it is easy to ensure even application. The color gradually and naturally darkens with time. I love this product and highly recommend it!

This self tanning lotion didn't have a strong smell, it dries fast and gives you instant color in a matter of minutes. Lobe this stuff

Good product, but not a game changer.

I'm a fair//medium skin tone, but I tan very well. Because I live in the midwest, I am constantly looking for something to give me a natural glow. This product delivers on that front, but I can compare results to some basic drug store brands that cost a fraction and deliver. The reason for that is because it has a STRONG DHA odor and is a little orange-y. I look forward to finding a product that delivers on these.

Quick tan, but leaves streaks
Purchased

I love this product and it worked very well for me; however, you have to wash your hands immediately afterward or else it turns your hands orange. It also left a few small streaks on my feet where I didn't rub it in as smoothly. Otherwise, it works great! I only had to use it ever other day when I first started it since it gave me a good tan pretty fast!

Self tanner

Same smell, result as all others - orange look after a day, smelly formula. I can't wait to find one that actually doesn't smell and gives good color.

My first Birchbox purchase
Purchased

I love this product! I have always been skeptical about self-tanners but this give just the right natural glow to skin. And it shows up almost immediately after applying. After using my Birchbox sample, I immediately purchased a whole bottle!

Hard to tell

It's hard to tell with a sample size whether or not this product really works. However, it seemed like it probably would if you kept using it. Self-tanners really aren't my bag though.

Love how natural this self tanner is!

I was happily surprised by the color of this product and plan on ordering some more come spring. The tanner gave me a great, natural looking glow last year and I am looking forward to using it again next season!

I've tried many self tanning lotions, being fair and most of them have failed to meet my expectations. About this product: It has a light cucumber scent when you first apply the lotion. It goes on smooth and eventually will have that sunless tan odor, but not as bad as others. It lasts more than 3 days and is in a nice price range. I have not streaked at all with this product b/c it's a gradual tan. I bought two tubes and am happy with them. I have tried another product in the form of a mousse that did not have an odor at all (yay!) but the color lasted only a day or two and it had a bronzer which rubbed off on everything. I've tried another product in the form of a towel (my previous fave), but it is a little over priced and does have an odor. I would recommend this to anyone.
