I bought this on a whim after using another self-tanner and not having much luck. This mousse is a dark bronze color when you pump it out of the bottle, which surprised me at first but makes it easier to apply since you can see where you've applied it. It doesn't smell like your typical sunless tanner, and just has a light scent before it dries. It really does moisturize like a lotion, so that's a plus. I will say you really do need to let it dry before doing much of anything, but I haven't had any issues with streaking or dirty-looking spots. Will definitely continue to use this!
