After three applications I'm very happy. This lotion is very easy to apply and I've had no issues with color build-up around dry areas such as elbows or knees. Because is seems to work a bit more gradually, I also haven't had issues with sudden changes in skin color where I didn't apply quite enough- it seems to blend much more seamlessly than other lotions I've tried.
As for scent, it far surpasses any other lotion I've tried so far. The lotion starts off with a sweet scent that is not overpowering and in the world of sunless tanning lotions, quite pleasant. After the lotion has set, it does have a slight chemical scent, but not overpowering or anything that made me feel self-conscious. I haven't had any problems with run-off onto clothes or fabric, but I do let the lotion dry for about ten minutes before letting it rub on to anything. The extra bonus is the drying component of the lotion- it lasts all day and my skin feels soft and silky, no greasy.
If you're looking for a new sunless tanning lotion to try I'd recommend giving this one a shot. It's relatively cheap, gives a natural color with a pleasant smell, and won't leave you looking like a splotchy pumpkin in July.
It takes a little longer to kick in than the bottle says, at least in my experience - over a week as compared to three to five days. True to form as far as not staining clothes. Have waited 5-10 minutes before dressing and it's done fine.
It's got a slight smell, as to be expected, but it's by far a very tolerable and almost pleasant self-tanning smell (it definitely smells like self-tanning, which is why I say "almost" pleasant. But it smells very close to a regular lotion that might be beach-scented, or to a mild sunscreen that is pleasantly scented.). The smell also fades after a bit and isn't really noticeable, at least I don't think so.
If all of this sounds pretty good, the reason I only gave it three stars is because I'm not a huge fan of the color. It's a very golden glow, and I was hoping for something more beige or tan (light bronze). It comes out slightly more yellow than the dark shade appears on the bottle. I understand the golden choice, given that it's for fair skin tones, but just be aware if you're buying that it will be noticeable slightly golden or sunny, as opposed to bronze. I think ideally I'd recommend it be used to about 2/3 of its fullest extent, as it looks more natural that way. That way you get a glow and some color, but it's not layered on so heavily that you start to look noticeably yellow, as in my experience happens when used every day for 10 days+ or to its fullest development.
