I like it a lot!

I have only used this on my face and neck area so far. The 1st time I used it, I applied 1 coat, waited about 5-10 min’s and applied a 2nd coat. In about 4 hrs. I had a nice tan on my face! It isn’t as noticable on the neck area but that section seems to be more stubborn with any product. I wish I could tell where I’ve applied it, but other than that, I think it’s great so far! It creates a real nice color and is easy to apply; smooth and creamy feel to it. I will keep using this and I’m sure I’ll end up buying more. I wish they had it in a larger, pump bottle…. great stuff!

Another disappointment

I read pretty positive reviews on this sunless tanner and liked the fact that it’s from an organic company that doesn’t add a bunch of crap chemicals to their products. It was cheap so I gave it a try. The smell wasn’t horrible. The color guide could have been darker (I like to really be able to see where i’m putting it so I don’t end up with missed patches and streaks). I did get some color from this, but not enough to repurchase. The color looked…ok…indoors but more on the yellow/washed out orangeish side when I went outdoors. Not pretty. I’m very pale so that could be a big reason. May be better suited for someone who already has a golden tone to their skin.

Happy and impressed…

I was really impressed with this self tanning lotion. I liked the olive oil component in it and I actually liked the scent! I appreciate that it’s made in the US and contains so many natural ingredients, but more than anything… it’s about the tan. I was really really happy with the brown in the results (as opposed to orange). Of all the different application methods, lotions are my least favorite, but the reviews on this one had me try it once more and I’m really glad I did. I think I’ll really use this one in the cooler months when my house is drier and my skin sucks up the moisture of a lotion super fast. In the meantime, I just lay in room under a fan and watch TV for 20 minutes to speed up the drying. Overall, I think the benefits of the moisture far outweighs the nuisance of extra drying time. Besides, isn’t tanner softer skin what we’re ultimately trying to achieve? Win-win.

In 15yrs I’ve tried em’ All & THIS is the BEST by far!! Color, easy app. Lasts etc.!!

I have purchased this from Sally’s beauty sup. & tan salons at much higher prices than THIS!! You get 3cans for close to the price of 1in stores. I have used & tried many, many self tan products over the past 15 years.some good, some Great, others Awful! And price seems to have little to do with how good the product really is? I’ve used very expensive brands only to end up “orange” & or blotchy ! But I don’t recommend getting a really cheap store brand either because then ur almost sure to look like an Oompa Loompa!! This product is by far one of the Best I have ever used! Easy to apply , Great color & it last a long time without an uneven blotchy fade . I LOVE this brand! I am ordering the 3can pkg now, @ around $30 it’s a Steal for this! Most everyone that tries this stuff loves it, even though everyone’s skin & chemistry is different, THIS seems to work well on ALL types! I highly recommend anyone to try this, wether your fair skinned or olive toned-this stuff works GREAT! & it smells GOOD too! Some as many of u know have an awful self tan Odor that stinks &is a dead give away that you’ve used a self tanner! Well not with THIS one! It smells kinda chocolate-ish, now I’m not saying your gonna want to EAT the stuff but it by far beats the reg old S.T odor, lol …. All in all this is a wonderful product that works well on almost everyone.for the price , you cannot &will NOT go wrong w/this. Do yourself and your skin a favor &get this stuff! If you buy & use self tanners, you’ll love it- if you go to a tan salon, you’ll love this and won’t even need to go Tanning anymore! I use to spend $100’s at tan salons & ruin my skin , hair color & nail tips, but once I found THIS, I haven’t gone to a salon in a year+! It’s a great product.im not usually a “review” writer, but there are so many self tan products out there &I have wasted so much $$ trying tons of them! So if this help some choose a good product over a bad one & saves you $$ , then I’m happy & wish I had Ppl’s reviews to read 15 yrs ago! Lol. 🙂

Bummer!!!!!

Was excited to order this. Based on reviews it was exactly what I wanted.After I waited 15 mins after my shower I stood back in my shower and sprayedmyself lightly with it. I noticed that it got more thick in certain areas so I hadto rub it in and then it left swirl marks and I had to hurry and wash my hands sothey wouldn’t get stained. Since I am fair, after this developed it left the poreson my legs more noticable, like my hair follicles. And then after it started to fadeafter 4 days or so it started to look like a giraffe, all spotty, it was weird!Good thing is that it didn’t stink tooooo bad and when you first spray it I think itsmells like vanilla with a hint of cocoa.

Great stuff!

Couldn’t find this product locally, although I’ve bought it from Walgreen’s in the past! I’ve been using faux tan for many years, but this is a daily tan, and I love it! Has absolutely no after-smell, like the self-tanners. They all say they don’t smell/stink, but self-tanners all contain thee same chemical dye, and they do! But, not this product, and it gives me a daily bronze tan, that others can’t believe is fake!

?

I purchased this because i use to tan a lot and also working at a tanning salon. While I worked there so many women came in saying that they have skin cancer yet hopped right into the tanning bed anyway. i stopped tanning. i found an awesome self tanner that is amazing but its a pain to put on every few days so i figured with this i can put it on when i pt on my lotion after my showers. this stains your hands SO BADLY! its hard to spread onto your skin. I also feel like the color is almost nonexistent. if you dont put enough time into putting this on and making sure its 100% perfect it would probably be very streaky. since this is a three pack i will have to use the rest. If my opinion changes on this I will update my review.

Favorite Bronzing Lotion

I love this lotion because it’s not a self tanner and it washes off so easily. No you can’t wear it swimming. This should only be used to make yourself look tan when you’re not on the beach or going swimming. I wish L’oreal had not discontinued this because I don’t like the one they replaced it with. It’s a self tanner and it wears off splotchy.

awesome smell, great conditioning

I recommend it if you like coconut, tropical smelling lotions. It’s doesn’t leave a greasy residue afterward, either, and the fragrance is long lasting. As a comparison, the typical specialty scented creams/lotions never have a smell that lasts as long. I got suckered into buying this at a tanning salon (which I’m glad I did), but I’ve also used this on my hands when they were chapped in the winter and it was an amazing transformation. It’s pricey for a daily lotion, but I love it.

Awesome product – smells great

I LOVED this product. It is NOT hot. I used it everywhere, including my face. It accelerates your tan an did not smell burnt after I was done in the tanning bed. It absorbed into my skin well and there was no reaction. This also does not have a bronzer in it, which was an absolute deal breaker if it did. I don’t do bronzing. Don’t like it leaching on my clothes and in between my fingers. I loved this and used it to the very last drop, which lasted me about 30 days. Shipping was quick and if I tan again this year, I will reorder!

This is NOT a “self-tanner”. it is a CHEAP ** TINTED ** MILD self-tanner

there is a MAJOR misrepresentation here: nowhere does the product say that this is a TINTED self-tanner. but that’s exactly what it is! it is meant to give you an instant color that washes off after a few hours if you take a shower. like the Clarins tinted tanner for legs, for example.soooo disappointed. i have tried a lot of self tanners, and this one is NOWHERE NEAR even the regular CVS ones like Neutrogena or L’oreal Sublime bronze. i didn’t notice any mess as stated by other reviewers, but the worst part of it is that it is so dry that it simply does NOT spread easily over the skin. it was very annoying, i didn’t like using it at all. you have to rub and rub and rub! the best way to spread a self tanner is to mix it with some lotion so it covers the skin evenly, especially on the critical areas like the ankles and the wrists. well it is really hard to make this happen with this product, as you always end up with darker spots here and there. and forget about covering your back yourself. i use a Home Depot painting brush with a long handle to cover my back with self tanner, but that one was a hopeless case to use with the brush.On the other hand, the fact that it is very dry does NOT mean it is quickly absorbed by the skin. Not at all. you need to apply it and wear some old clothes otherwise you will get stains everywhere, even after 4 hours.the only good thing about it is that it turns dark, not orangy. however the color does not last longer than other products. but hell, Lancome Flash Bronzer Airbrush (THE BEST!) does that and gives you a delicious golden color without all the rubbing, the staining, and the delayed drying. plus i found that one here at a great price. So i am back to it.in all honesty, i feel ripped off because i think that most positive reviews have been written by people working at that company. i have a hard time believing that a real self tanning junkie can be sooo crazy about such a cheap product. total waste of $. but now you are warned.

TOTALLY NATURAL LOOKING TAN!!!!

I love this product…The BEST tanning product ever. I have been using it now for a week and it looks completely natural, easy to apply, no smell. I went into my hairdressers and they thought I had been on a vacation!!! Awesome. I applied it with gloves, did not spray it on. I think it would be too messy and harder to keep even. Very easy. Price is fabulous, shipped quickly. I will definitely purchase this product again.

Hard to tan areas

I’ve been tanning a few times a week for a few years now and no matter what lotion I use, my neck and chest are always a little lighter than the rest of my body. Quick tan is perfect for those hard to tan areas. I usually just spray it on my neck and chest, sometimes on my arms as well, to even out my color. Since I am tan to begin with, I do not see a drastic difference, only the perfect amount of sheer but noticeable color to even out my body. I like to spray it on my neck every morning so that my neck and face are the same color after I apply my foundation. It is the best spray tan compared to all the rest I’ve tried.

S/be tinted moisturizer

This should be labeled as a tinted moisturizer rather than a sunless tan lotion. It has done nothing for tanning my face. Underneath a bronzer powder makeup, it’ll help make my face look tanner but then it’s back to it’s normal color, once washed off.

Lorena Arlington Heights, IL

meh…

I usually don’t bother writing reviews for items I dislike, however, I enjoy writing reviews about products I enjoy and am pleased with. This face self tanner, however, is terrible. It is no better, if not worse, than a product you can get in a drug store. It darkens my face with the “tinted” coloring, but it does not self-tan my face after the coloring is washed off! It also leaves me with cystic acne, even if it is only worn during the day and I am careful to wash my face well after. For a product that states that it is specifically for the face, I think it is terrible that it causes acne.

Good product

Wintertime leaves me looking pale and sallow if I can’t get to the sunshine…and I really dislike that. Having a little color just seems to make me feel better…but finding the right product for me was hard work. This face color seems to work fairly well (don’t forget to wash your hands after applying). I like it worn under make up…it is a little ‘off’ on me alone. Nice product, I would buy again.

Nice Color

I picked up a bottle of this over the weekend so that my legs will match the color of my arms and I have to say that I’m pretty satisfied with the results. The color is really natural looking and if you apply it in light even coats it’ll look much better on your skin, just remember to go light around your ankles and knees. The scent is much better than the usual self tanner but I have to say that for me this stuff takes twice as long to dry as usual, I’ve been sitting in front of a fan for about thirty minutes right now and my legs are still a little sticky.

If they ever discontinue this product I will CRY. Okay, that’s a little melodramatic. I will tear up a little, though 🙂 But seriously – this product is *amazing*!! I discovered it a year or two ago and even did the subscribe and save (until I realized I was having it shipped more frequently than I was actually using it. Now I have a mini-stockpile so I’m set if it’s ever discontinued. If you like being orange this is not the product for you. This product goes on easily and looks FANTASTIC. Totally natural. Just don’t go spraying it on every day (as I did once for 4 or 5 days in a row) – b/c then you will look orange. Stick to every other day or every few days and you’ll look like you live in CA year-round.

Nice Color, Very Natural Tan – But Not Very Dark…

This product delivers a very even tan with nice color – it wasn’t orange on me at all. With one application, I look like I’ve been in a tanning bed 3 or 4 times (and it is so much kinder to the skin!). I took the advice of other reviewers and exfoliated in the shower then applied a good shea butter moisturizer prior to applying the gel, putting extra moisturizer on hands, feet, knees and elbows. Because of the bronze color guide, it really looks like you are dark after applying the tanning gel. The next morning after I showered, I saw that a good deal of the color had washed off, but I had a nice even light tan in its place. I’m going to try applying again tonight to get one shade darker, hopefully, then maintain it weekly. I even used it on my face (again, after applying a light moisturizer) and had good results. The smell isn’t that bad – all self tanners have a certain smell, but this one is relatively mild.Fake Bake, like all self tanners, does take some time to apply correctly and let dry. In my opinion, it’s worth the time investment to have a natural looking tan and not get skin cancer from tanning beds or direct sunlight. My dermatologist will be so proud of me. :-)Just take my advice and buy this online. I bought it at Ulta and it costs a LOT more. The only reason I did that is because if you don’t like a product, you can take it back. Now that I know I like it, I’ll buy it on Amazon.com when I need a refill.***UPDATE***After applying the gel again last night and showering this morning, I can detect no discernable darkening of the initial light tan color. I think all you can expect from this product is a very light, subtle tan. (At least that is all it does for me – it may work better for others.) Because of this, I downgraded my review from 4 stars to 3. I think this product is best used as a one-time bronzer and not a self tanning product.

Great bronzed look

This self tanner is amazing. I use it once a week to maintain a healthy glow. I apply at night before bed, after a shower. In the morning, I rinse off and I have a great glow without looking orange or having to deal with harmful tanning bed rays. One bottle lasted me a year.

Messy!

I 1st used the Fake Bake lotion – it was great, but not dark enough. This gel is a pain to put on; it gets real messy when you keep rubbing (flakes). If you don’t keep rubbing, it’ll show streaky. It also has not tanned me any darker than the lotion.

This is my first time trying glow lotion / sunless tanner and so my first time purchasing a mitt.

I did read reviews of this one compared to a couple of others and note that this one is an actual mitt that you slide your hand into, while others are more just a sponge that you hold.
