The only one I can think of is it's harder to wash off your hands if you don't wash it off immediately after applying it.
TIP: I know it says use it before bed but here are
3 REASONS TO USE IT IN THE MORNING INSTEAD:
1) If you use it right before bed some of it will come off on your pillow and sheets and stain them.
2) If you use it at night and shower in the morning and use a washcloth or loofah, you're going to wash/rub some of it off before your day even starts.
3) If you use it in the morning after you shower it works as a great moisturizer and absorbs better into your skin.
My heritage is Scandinavian and Scots-Irish. I am very fair, light hair and blue eyes and WHITE skin. I have used other fake tanners (lotions, foams, sprays) and am pretty skilled at self-tanning, but all of them eventually fade to orange and I walk around smelling faintly of corn chips. (does anyone else think fake tan smells like chips?!)
This stuff is tinted green/brown, so you can see where you are applying. It does not rub in evenly, BUT DON'T BE SCARED. I was fairly panicked because I looked like I rolled in a mud pit. The stuff dried in about an hour, and I went to bed. It did come off on my sheets, but the sheets came clean. After my shower, the tint rinsed off and I was left with a subtle brown glow all over my body. NO STREAKS. I had darker accumulation on my elbows and ankles, but really not that noticeable. I was so relieved. I am so excited to find a product that (so far) leaves my skin golden rather than orange. I am on day three and it still looks great! It smells nice when applying, and the next day it did smell a little bit corn-chippy, but not overwhelming.
Tip: Use plastic gloves to apply, or wash hands with baking soda after. Baking soda takes everything off!
Tip: mix a squirt of tanner with regular face moisturizer to apply to face for a smoother application.
I've attached two pictures, one of my leg before I showered and the other after.
Seeking a bit more color than the medium/tan Jergens color, I checked out Amazon's selection of tanners and chose this one because of the price and description of "overnight medium".
Its brown! While some may consider this a con since they believe brown lotion can transfer easily to light fabrics, its a major plus for me because it 1)gives instant color and 2)I can actually see where I distribute it on my skin. I'm MUCH less likely to end up with streaks since I can use the color to gauge where it is on my skin right away
It smells good! I'd compare the smell to a cherry/almost scent..I think Jergens lotion (not the tannign lotion) has a similar fragrance. Its clean smelling, and MUCH better than others I've tried. If you are sensitive to fragrance, this lotion is not for you.
It has a pump. This makes it easier to get the lotion out of the bottle when you have lotion on your hands...its not fun trying to squeeze more lotion out of a tube when you already have lotion on you hands. The pump is good.
Price. Self explanatory.
Dries fast for a lotion.
Again, if youre' sensitive to smells, this is not the lotion for you.
It is pretty dark for a "medium" lotion. Although I'm loving my glow from the lotion, its not a natural look for winter where I live...
Overall, GREAT sunless tanner. I'd use it at night or in the morning because it dries fast and smells good.
I will no longer purchase any other sunless tanner after trying this one!
If you are applying it alone a thick layer of gauze pad taped to a long serving spoon helps to reach the areas on your back your hands can't reach.
