Smells better than most self tanners
Sampled

I thought this smelled better than a lot of other self tanners I've tried - the result was pretty much the same as others though. So all in all, not bad.

I don't like self tanner
Sampled

Not a fan of self tanner, and can't bring myself to use this... always a risk of that orange color

Self Tanners Used to Scare Me
Sampled

Admittedly, I am not a self-tanner kind of girl. I have pale, pale skin an any effort to make it darker usually doesn't work out so well for me. I did like the smell of this one, and it was easy to apply -- the color was natural and it wasn't a scary experience like my last foray into making my skin orange. However, I don't like anything that is semi-permanent and needs to be 'maintained'. I am much more comfortable using a tinted body lotion that can wash off at the end of the day.

Zero Results
Sampled

I have fair skin and avoid the sun, so I was really excited to try this product because I've used a lot of self-tanners over the years. Unfortunately, after three days of use, I had zero results with the color. The smell was nice, and I liked the consistency, but I wasn't any tanner than when I started.

Not too bad - not for me though
Sampled

I'm ok w/gradual tanning lotions, but I feel like they often wash off when you shower, so how are you "gradually" building a tan? On the positive side, the smell isn't too bad.

Didn't smell great
Sampled

I love the idea of tanning without being in the sun. The product felt nice going on--smelled ok and dried quickly. However, after it was on for a bit my skin smelled a little weird. Please note that I am very sensitive to smells.

Depends on what you are looking for

This product does take a long time to dry ...with that being said ...if you are looking for just a hint of glow/color and don't want a product that rubs off on clothing or sheets... Then this is right for you ....but if your looking for a self tanner that gives you a deep,just got back from vacation tan...I'm not sure you would like this ...what I did was use it after I applied a darker self tanner and it looked pretty good .

Great for dry skin
Sampled

I love this self tanner because its super rich formula is great for my dry skin and so I don't need to layer on a moisturizer underneath. Th only problem is that it doesn't self-tan on me at all. I can't see any difference in my skin tone even with layering it on several days in a row.

Slow and good!

This didn't stain and streak me as I anticipated. I was pleased it was gradual but still didnt take but three applications to make my legs look golden!

Even color, easy application

I don't usually have a problem with self tanners and this one was no exception. I loved the generous portion and the even color this product provided. This will be on my get list for the fall and winter when my skin has less color.
