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....

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!

This is THE one! I bought this tanner because of the SPF 15 sun protection. I like to put it on, then work in the yard. BUT, aside from the sun protection, this tanner is great! It doesn't smell bad like every other tanner I have tried. I know you've heard that from the others, but this one really doesn't have that icky self-tanner smell. It actually smells like chocolate! I'm guessing that's because of the cocoa butter, because I can't imagine how they've done it. It also leaves you with a beautiful, natural-looking tan that lasts all week. I use it on the weekend and the tan lasts me through the work week. The cocoa butter leaves you feeling moisturized and smooth, where other self-tanners made my skin dry. I thought this was a little pricey at $10+, but it's so good, I'm willing to pay it. I can't imagine going back to using the other smelly tanners I was using, especially the ones with the shiny particles in them. I highly recommend this and think it is a great value, two products in one!

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.

I know all sunless tanners smell weird but this stuff smells like a big jug of hershey's syrup. Really made me feel nauseous over time. So I applied and toughed out the smell and followed all the directions and the color came in okay, nothing amazing, but whatever. Went out to the pool and everything is going fine. I went in the water and when I put my white coverup back on huge cocoa colored stains rubbed off my entire body onto the coverup. When I washed it later the stains came out, but it was kind of embarrassing in a group to be covered in brown stains after a swim. Seriously it looked really awful and I wasn't really with people with whom I could laugh about my awful sunless tanner. I threw it away immediately. I am so sad they ruined my favorite drugstore L'Oreal by changing the formula. It was perfect for me and had SPF8, which I loved. Now it smells like horrid perfume and it doesn't moisturize my skin and the tan is barely visible and NO SPF. I swear they felt that people were using it as a moisturizer, tanner, and sunblock and they wanted to sell us three products instead of one so they ruined it.

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.

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

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.
