I don't know why I give this product two stars. Perhaps out of some brand loyalty - I used it for so long before I knew I could do better and I love most Neutrogena products. Perhaps because I still think that using this sunless tanner is better than baking cancer onto your skin.

Anyway, as an instant bronzer, it gives a nice color and is easy to apply. It drys quickly on your skin so you can dress quickly, It also washes out of clothes w/o staining. The trouble is that if you are not careful around areas with tough skin (elbows, ankles...) it appears much darker and unnatural looking. I have also noticed that, after a day or two, it tends to fade elsewhere and stay behind in my pores/hair folicles (especially on arms and legs) leaving a dotted effect that is just plain weird. I have to really scrub in the shower to get rid of it. The biggest problem is that it doesn't stay on. It washes off as soon as you shower (or worse, jump in the pool!) - so don't use a light colored towel. Umm, just don't swim at all!! I have also noticed lovely dark brown sweat in the creases of my elbows when I work out. This loss of color is even after waiting the recommended hour (infact, even after waiting several hours). As a sunles tanner it just doesn't work. I have never noticed a tan develop, even after days of repeated application. It is a bargain tanner - so try it if you must - maybe it works differently on different types of skin. But IMO Loreal has some better products at about the same price.

I decided to try a self tanner because I know how bad the sun is for your skin. I grew up on the beach in Hawaii so I am used to having a tan year round. But now I live on the mainland and I ma pale as ever. I tried sunnless tanners in the past when they first started getting popular and that was a horrible experience. I ended up being orange and smelly. I decided never to use self tanners again. That was like 5 years ago and well, I had a change of heart.

I tried this product after reading reviews on a different site. I have to say that it is great! First off, there is no smell to it. It has a bronzer in it and it makes it easy to apply because you can actually see where it is going. It dries fast and is not orange on my skin. It actually looks natural! And I can spot a fake tan a mile away. (Trust me-I grew up on the beach)The tanner takes 2-4 hours to develop so you have to wait to wash the bronzer off if you don't like it. Usually, I will wake in the morning, put the lotion on, do chores and take a shower. By then, the tanner is developed and looks great. The bronzer is great if you plan on wearing shorts on a sunny day. Beware-if you wear it on a rainy day, it might run a little off your legs. A great product!

If I could have given it a "0" star I would have. It streaks when you sweat, and who doesn't in the summer, plus it washed off in the shower after applying it about 8 hours before. Glad I tried it when I knew I wasn't going anywhere. What an embarrasment that would have been.

I love the realistic tan it gave me! It"s all in the way you apply it. I used a small sponge paintbrush. put it on with straight up and down motions then let it dry. It doesn't look the same wet as it does dry. The tan you will have takes 2-4 hours. And if you notice a streak all you have to do is take a tissue and rub the streak gently. The tan looks even and fabulous if you do it correctly. Great stuff, use it right and you'll look great, and deep is not too dark, its just the nice tan you always wished you could get from the sun (even when your too fair).
Just be sure not to do it in a hurry!!!
