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!
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.
