Birchbox Breakdown

There was a time when self tanning was synonymous with a telling eau de chemical and a streaky orange finish, but luckily, that’s now a thing of the past. This daily moisturizer has a touch of bronzer, which helps you build color gradually for a natural-looking glow. Say hello to a safer, better-smelling way to tan, and au revoir to those orange streaks.

How to Use

Apply daily all over body using the Tan Applicator Mitt, avoiding eyes and any broken or damaged skin. This product may stain clothes or furniture, so be sure to wait for lotion to completely dry before getting dressed. Wash the applicator after each use. We recommend trying a spot test 24 hours prior to use.

Genius Product

I've always been very fair skinned, but since moving to the PNW from Southern California, I've become a shocking shade of pure white. I've tried self tan products in the past, ranging from low-end drug store stuff to the expensive department store variety. While orangey-ness is always a concern, I've always had two main issues: 1) Streaking is inevitable on fair skin, just a tad bit to much in one spot and you have a streak. 2) When you go from super pale to even a light-medium tan overnight, it's obvious the tan is from a tube. This lotion solves both problems. It builds gradually, so if you get a little bit to much on one spot during an application, it doesn't stick out. It also take several applications to get to a nice tan (although I did notice a shade difference after the first application), so it's not a dramatic change. It typically absorbs into my skin within 15-20 minutes, and I haven't had any problems with it staining fabrics. The smell is a little strong but not unpleasant. After four applications I had a nice, light, natural and healthy looking tan, and now I reapply every other night to maintain it. I feel so much more comfortable wearing shorts and short sleeves now that I don't have an obvious tube-tan and I'm not blinding everyone with my white skin. This is now a staple in my spring and summer beauty routine.

Since winter i've gotten really pale and now that its spring i wanted my healthy summer glow back! this product did just the trick it isn't too dark and after applying it three nights in a row i saw a bubble difference which is just what i was going for (if you want darker i would apply more often) It wasn't orangy and as a bonus it moisturized my skin SO much! i will defiantly buy this product again

Natural looking

I am a blue eyed redhead and am quite pale with lots of freckles. The light/medium gives me a bit of color without looking fake, however I only use it every two or three days. There is still some scent, but my husband thinks it smells good. It is not my favorite scent.

Best on market

This is the best self tanning product I've ever used. I have very fair skin so I need a lot of helo. Doesn't streak of come of o clothing when you follow directions). Dries quickly which allows you to not have to wait forever to get dressed.

Every self tanner smells...

This one is no exception...I hate that drives me crazy. I really can't stand smelling that "self-tanner" scent. It's the same with spray tans and self tanners. It is always there and this one is no exception to the rule. it might work great- I wouldn't really know bc I don't use it on the regular...If you can hang with that scent- get it, but I cannot commit :-(
