Palmer's Sunless Tanner should have a huge following.

I am MADLY IN LOVE with this product. It is the best self tanner I have found at any price! No kidding. Here is why...
1. Amazing natural color
2. Absolutely no smell!! (This is a first for me. Everything else I have tried goes bad on my skin.)
3. No streaking. As will all self tanners, I am careful to blend around knees & elbows.
4. Fast subtle color that is easy to build on.
5. Color lasts! People don't know why, but say I look rested & happy with this color.
6. Cheap! A little goes a long way.
7. Good for everything from face, around eyes, to legs. I use it on my face over my daily moisturizer & still get color.
8. Has SPF!
9. Nice light moisurizer.
10. Don't let the "Instant bronzer" feature scare you. It is SO subtle that it simply helps avoid streaks when blending.

I will be crushed if this is ever discontinued. I have used self tanners since the beginning of time. As a strawberry blonde, tanning is not an intelligent option. TRY IT! It's so cheap that you have very little to lose....

My mistake. This product not only makes your skin darker, it makes your age spots darker than that. Bad decision for an old guy.

This stuff is great - it goes on brown so you get immediate colour and you can make sure there are no streaks. It then develops into a nice tan that lasts for days and it is not yellow or orange - I love it.

The reviews written for this product were rave: "best color", "no streaks", "no smell"...
The color is alright. The first day I applied it it looked almost orange but the next day it darkened and it doesn't look too bad. I'm probably not going to wear it again. In just the first application it darkened so much... I'm worried I'll look like a burnt orange when the bottle is gone.
It does streak. I mixed it 1 part Palmers 1 part moisturizer lotion (that makes the self tanner less potent) however even then the Palmers is so thick that it's almost impossible for it not to streak. When it dried it looked blotchy. Also I washed my hands thoroughly but it still absorbed into my cuticles on my nails so my fingernails look orange.
It does smell like self tanner... and chocolate. It smelled like I was rubbing chocolate syrup on me. Then when it dried the self tanner smell was very strong.

I love this stuff and I never thought I would say that about a self-tanner. I admit this sat in my cabinet for several weeks after I received because I was afraid to use it, but I now I wish I hadn't waited so long. It actually smells pretty good and does not have that horrible self-tanner smell (hallelujah). It feels good once it is absorbed (and it has SPF, big bonus) and it doesn't take long at all. Obviously, it will get on your clothes if you try to put clothes on right after applying. It is a very pretty light milk chocolate color but it doesn't go on obvious at all. You have to keep applying to build the coverage so even if you do make some goofs they won't be that noticeable. I am extremely pale and it has not turned me orange or ridiculously dark. I just look like I have some actual color, but I don't use it every day. I'm thrilled to have found a self-tanner that is natural looking, easy to use, and doesn't smell bad.

So...

I have never used tanning lotion before, I have only tanned in a bed and used spray tan. I took a leap of faith based off the high reviews this product got. I also use this brand as my daily moisturizer.

The smell is a light chocolate smell. That's kind of a given because this is a coco butter product. It does have that tanner smell once it is on and dried... but that tanner smell isn't really strong. I have pretty pale skin and I did a happy dance when I put the lotion on, about 4-5 hours later I was looking like I lived in California again. I was super happy, I felt like my tan looked natural, but dark enough for me and my fiancé to notice.

Overall, I would recommend this product. I will used it all during my winter here in Seattle.

I really liked the results of this tanner. As a pale white girl (I'm usually the 2nd or 3rd lightest shade when it comes to makeup foundations), I don't like to look transparent when it's summer time. This tanner gave me a noticeable, but natural and subtle, tan. The formula is very smooth and goes on very well. I didn't have any streaks. It's a little more greasy than other brands, but I didn't think there was an abnormally long drying time. I was able to put on my pjs within five minutes and I woke up with a nice color. The bronzer rinsed off in the shower, leaving just the tan. My friends said "Angela, you look tan!" But they had no idea it was fake until I told them =)

I was using face tanner that didn't seem to make a difference - with one application of this you will be able to tell the difference! It doesn't look orange-y at all. To be used on the face or the body, but I use it on my face because I always put sunscreen on my face, making my face multiple shades lighter than my body. it does smell a bit but not as bad as some products I've used, that's why I rated this product 4 stars instead of 5, because of the smell. The tan lasts about 5-7 days, applying it once a week usually keeps me looking tan!

I have probably tried a dozen tanners over the years and this is the best yet. Best feature is the lack of odor. I also love that it contains an spf of 15. I put this on, wear my bikini and work in the garden for a few hours. The tan I get is very natural and medium dark. As with any other tanner, you need to rub in evenly and wash palms with soap following aplication. Thank you Palmers for a superior product at a reasonable price!

This is the only sunless tanner lotion I have used, but it is great! I love that it has sunscreen in it so I don't have to use that as well. As long as it's rubbed in well, there is no streaking. The only thing that bothers me is that it can look a little orange at times. Smells great which is another plus!!
