This product is so addicting, at first you might think that it's too much for self tanner but if you get the very dark you can make two bottles last the entire summer and fall. There is never any streaking. The dark color might scare you at first but it rubs and blends in gorgeously. It doesn't smell like a traditional self tanner, but it does have a slight "lotion-y" smell to it hence why the four stars instead of five. However it has red and gray undertones so you never EVER go orange. My friend and I are obsessed! She has pink undertones and I have olive. It looks fabulous on the both of us!

I don't have much luck with sunless tanners. I'm very pale and I don't like the health risks associate with tanning in the sun. I've tried many popular drugstore brands I wouldn't go back too. I've tried Jergens Natural Glow, which was my favorite of the low budget variety. It gave nice gradual color but the smell disgusts me so much that I never end up using it for very long. I read glowing reviews about Sun Labs, so I decided to take the hit on my wallet it and give it a try. Keep in mind I only bought a full size version of this product, and not the accompanying scrubs, lotions, etc.

COLOR:
The color is fantastic and gives you a very realistic tan, even if you're starting off as pale as I am. It's the most realistic "quick" tanner I've used, Jergens being the most realistic gradual tanner. The color seems to have an olive undertone instead of orange, ensuring more natural looking bronze skin.

APPLICATION:
The lotion is darkly tinted so you see exactly how it's applying. Take note that if it looks uneven during this time you had better fix it or else it will end up looking just as bad once it sets. I still recommend using a bit of white lotion mixed in a drop of this stuff for your rough spots like knees and feet, or else it may end up soaking too much color as with most tanning lotions.

A note on the dark tint: the tint is there to help you apply, and serve as a visual. It also helps you look much darker. Once you take your first shower after using the product, you will appear much lighter because the tint will wash away. So don't be afraid if the water turns dark brown and you look much lighter after stepping out. Personally I like washing off the dark tint as soon as possible.

So after looking at reviews on youtube.com and reading up on this particular tanner, I went ahead and bought a bottle about a month ago. I just used it today and may I say, I don't know what I was waiting for. I know there is a system, exfoliator, tanner, and maintainer. I, however, just bought the tanner. I have these exfoliating wash gloves that I bought for a few bucks at the store, and I just use my normal body wash. I shaved, exfoliated my body, and after I was dry applied this to my entire body, including my face. I love the fact that the color of the lotion is a dark brown, but as you apply it, it actually has a greenish tint to it. DO NOT BE ALARMED, you will not turn green, and certainly will not turn orange. I am a very fair person, and I found that ultra dark or very dark whatever it is, is perfect. My skin was givin and instant glow, and since I was able to see where I was applying, Blending was easy and there was no streaking. I applied it carefully to my face, making sure I blended well into my neck and ears (you don't want the tan to just end). After each section of my body, I used the exfoliating glove and some soap to clean my palms well, as they were almost mud colored lol. My back was the hardest, as it should be but with some interesting twisting and hand swiping, I evenly blended the lotion, and GOT no streaks. When I was finished I took a round cotton pad, and dabbed it in hot water, went over my eyebrows, my nose, the bridge of my nose, my mouth and jaw line into my neck. Since the color is instant, you can fade it naturally doing that so there is no buildup in a particular spot. In a few hours the color deepened nicely, and at first I thought I could even use another coat, which i may do another coat on my legs, they are especially pale.Read more ›

I have been using self tanners for about 20 years, so I have tried a lot of different brands. I have learned that no one tanner "does it all". Some are dark, but rub off and even stain clothing and bed sheets. Some look great at first but don't wear well. This is my favorite every-day moisturizing self tanner. It goes on VERY smoothly and easily, it has a beautiful, natural color, and wears off fairly evenly. Best of all, it dries quickly and does not stain my clothing. And it really does smell great--sort of like chocolate cherry. For those of you who wondered, I experimented and found that the "Very Dark" is a bit deeper and stays a bit longer than the "Ultra Dark".

I paid twice as much on this than my normal self tanner. I read so many great reviews I tried it. Itsa waste of money. Maybe if your skin is snow white youll see something. Im slightly dark complected and white, look good with a tan. I kept putting this stuff on trying to get a nice tan. I spent 2 oz out of 8 oz =1/4 of the $22 =$5.50 in 2 days for next to nothing and I got the one thats very dark. This stuff is a dark green which Im sure is to offset any orange look, but beware if its not rubbed in good itll look like a bruise!! I finally realized the more I put on my skin was looking dirty! Like transient! I know when I use Loreal if I get some on say my heel and dont get it off, itll be stained, csnt really wash it off, that tells me it is really darkening my skin, not with this, it blackens your hands but you can wash it off. In some places it was rolling off my skin like dirt! I couldnt believe it. If you can roll it off dont think its going to last through a bath! The worst part about all of it was I went through "The Beauty Shop" seller. They were really nasty when I asked for a refund from the other bottle I had that I didnt use. They said they refund it but there would be a restocking fee and the amount they paid for shipping which would be 50% of what I paid ect. Basically acting like it would cost more to return it than just throwing it out the window.
Dont say I didnt tell you so!
