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.
I have never been a huge fan of self tanners, so take my review with a grain of salt.
At first, I was in love! I had changed my mind about self tanning. I was about to hop online and buy the full product right away. I loved the subtle color, the ease it came off my hands, the lack of weird tint that my skin usually gets with any self tanner.
The second application changed my mind. I realized my earlier opinion was clouded by infatuation. This product wasn't drying, I couldn't put on my clothes for an hour because I still felt sticky. My nails now look a little orange, despite washing my hands immediately and near my feet you can tell that I used a self tanner. Perhaps the second application does not need to be as plentiful as the first application? I still like that it does not have the strong odor that is associated with most similar lotions and it moisturized my skin well.
I've never found a self-tanner I like, but this one is it. It doesn't smell like self-tanner, so I can wear it during the day. I hate having to be careful around knees, elbows, and palms, but that's the nature of the beast. This gives a natural glow. Not orangey.4
I tried this product before I went out to dinner and when I was done putting it on one leg it looked fine but then after I finished my second leg it was impossible to get the two of them to be the same tone! It also felt like my legs were sticky for a while as if it never fully dried.3
I was skeptical to try the product due to the smell of other self tanners. Surprisingly, it did not smell badly.4
I don't like tanning lotions I'm very happy with my skin color as it is, so whenever birch box sends me tanning lotion it goes right in the garbage.
I have fair skin. I was very pleased with the quality of tan this product gave me after just one application. It was not streaky or too orange. I don't plan on buying the full size because I don't think the price is a good value- it was not that much better than similar mass market products that are half as much.3
I could start to see change in color after the second application. I stopped for a day in between each day thereafter because I didn't want too much color - it began to look a little fake to me in certain lighting. As purely a moisturizer its very good, and the smell isn't too bad either.4
Always nervous about trying new tanning products. Had no issues with this product very similar to what I already use.3
Fair skin isn't the best to use these lotions on... I looked like i had applied a tanning lotion. I didnt get the gross smell afterward though! so that's nice!3
I liked the fact that this was thicker than most self tanners...and it didn't smell horrible. Worked slowly, but that was good for me so I could prevent streaks.4
