I like this product, but I do have to say that one has to be careful when using it. I was perhaps a bit more cautious than recommended and only used very small amounts on my lower arms at first. After three applications over three days, I found that the "tan" was very natural looking. I then progressed to my face and legs and received many compliments about my "vacation-look" tan! I did note that darkening could occur on elbows, knees, and ankles. So, I took extra precautions by smoothing the tanning lotion with a regular moisturizer and washing my hands immediately as not to discolor them, as well.

Does exactly what the directions say it will do. I'v hardly used any since purchasing and already see the results. Although I only use it on my legs, which for some reason don't tan as easily as the rest, I will never go back to the tanning booth again. Saving a ton of money each month. Worth the purchase for sure!

I used it 4 times in the 2 days before before New Yrs Eve and it totally worked. I even got a couple comments by people asking me if I'd been in Florida recently(I live in PA). It works fast, and it looks natural. The smell is a little unpleasant (to me anyway) but it's not a big deal and you're not going to be using this daily so you can live with it when you do use it.

This lotion works great for me. No streaks, and a great, natural-looking tan. It works on the face as well if you are careful, and take care around the hairline where it can accumulate and get dark.
My only complaint would be that the smell is rather strong, as most tanning lotions are. My husband does not want to be around me when I have just put it on. Though, that may be considered a plus for some people.

I used this recently to tan before a tropical vacation. I began applying it 1 week ahead, as read the tan builds gradually so needed to be sure it worked, as if it didn't I planned to get a pricey professional spray on tan before my trip.
The first day I just did legs and arms, I saw a little difference and had no negative reaction to it (I have very sensitive skin, so better safe than sorry!)
The second day I was more brave and tanned everything, including my face.
On the third day I had a good tan developed! My legs were still too pale for my preference but I should note I have very fair skin. I applied the tan cream again,
I continued to apply every day after my morning shower for 1 week. My friends commented on my good tan, and said I looked really healthy and glowing with it! Which is definitely what most of us want from a tan, is a naturally subtly sexy, healthy looking glow!
I missed a couple days when busy, the tan faded a bit, but I was able to boost it right back up within 1 day by applying it again.
The benefit of this tan building slowly is I didn't get streaks or white spots from accidentally missing a spot, which is a problem I have had with other sunless tanning products. If I missed a spot one day, I hit it the next, so the color looked even and natural.
Also, being it's a cream, I think its easier to not miss spots by thoroughly rubbing it all over when applying and rubbing it in evenly just as you would a lotion. It also worked as a great skin moisturizer, my boyfriend commented on how soft my skin was!
The products reasonable price made it affordable enough for me to use every day, which was a convenient luxury I did not have with previous similar products I have purchased. I was able to get approx 8 tans out of 1 bottle.

This is the only sunless tan lotion I use. I used to buy it at Kmart, but couldn't find it. So happy to see it on Amazon. I have had skin cancer so I avoid the sun and never use suntan booths. This works very well for me----no streaks or blotches. I do apply it two or three times to get the color I want, and then I reapply in a few days. Once or twice a week after that keeps the tan I want throughout the summer. Just be careful---it is a realistic tan and you will think you are tan---so if you go in the sun you will burn!!!

Great Product. Smell is a little off putting, but this isn't the first time dealing with self tanners, so I knew what to expect. Product does what it says. My sister asked if I was tanning again, I said I was outside in the sun. I live in the Philly area. LOL Will order again
