Best cheap self tanner on the market has not been discontinued:-( Worked like a charm for me, never streaked. My hands & feet, I had to be careful. Other than that, it was so easy to use.
Now I have to research all over again:-( continued >>
AMAZING! Just make sure you apply it evenly. If you don't you will gets white spots. When I first thought I using a self tanner I was concerned about sun damage. My friend lays out ever weekend and now has white spots on her forehead, she is 14 years old. Sucks! But I have been very lucky that I have only a few visible white spots. And those are on my arms and they are tiny! This doesn't look fake at all! Nice smell. I don't know why people are complaining about it. After I get my desired color I used the Jergens Natural Glow and Protect to maintain that pigment. Overall, yes I will buy this again. Outstanding product.
This product is awful. I've tried a few self-tanners and this one, is by far the worst. I didn't like the scent and I hardly received any coloration whatsoever (even after repeated applications).
See my other review for a great self-tanner...Neutrogena's Build-a-Tan. Love that one.
This stuff is great so far! Cheap, fast and easy. In just a few hours I was noticeably more tan and had a nice glow. Just don't put it on before you go out if you think you will sweat!!! I had a tiny issue when I put it on and just went out during the day, but it really is barely noticeable. I suggest putting it on before and bed and then showering the next day for the best results! Great for olive skin tones though!
I LOVE this stuff. I use it every time I want to look tan, and it really does make me quite a few shades darker in just one day, with one application. I usually will put it on at night and sleep in it, and then wake up tan. I think it takes at least 8 hours to get the full result, but you will start noticing color within a few hours. The tan lasts about a week on me, although fades gradually during that time.
I haven't had problems with streaky color, but I'm also pretty careful about putting it on evenly. The only pitfalls I've had are getting more concentrated color at my wrists, and my hands being pale because I just can't not wash my palms after putting this stuff on. But even that hasn't been that noticable.
I would say, unless you are as porcelin pale as Nicole Kidman, don't bother with the light/medium express stuff, go for the darker version. I bought the lighter one to try it out and it just didn't give me much of a tan - no more than the foam gradual build up version. I am pretty light skinned and burn easily, but I do have some olive undertones, so maybe that helps it to look decent on me.
I also use the Jergens foam sunless tanner that gradually builds up, and I like that a lot too (especially for my face), but this is the one I use when I want to look tan FAST.
First off, I have very fair skin, I can't even turn a sunburn to tan. I had been skeptical at first of this product but decided to try it after using the medium to tan jergens revitalizing, which the only downside to that was that it took 4 or 5 daily uses to build a nice color. The Express version is amazing, in one application I get the same color as I would after a spray tan. The only issue I have is that it goes on with no color and so you don't know if you missed any spots for a few hours which may be too late, but with some practice it's not a problem.
I like it. One coat was great - I even put it on my face and it did really well (a very LIGHT coat on my face). I definitely saw results within a few hours. I looked like I had a tan alright. But I do get the feeling that more than one coat would make me orange. I would like to use it again, and go darker, but I'm afraid of the orange undertones. They look bronze with one coat and it looks good - so if you do use this, use a single, thin coat and then assess your tan. Great if you are in a rush and need some color A.S.A.P. Not so great if you want to look like you have a dark brown tan.
I gave this and the other natural glow lotions a couple chances. The first tine I used it and after 3 days it turned me orange with streaks. I gave it another chance.... after one day of using the express I'm orange with streaks . Then I used a small amount of the moisturizer to blend it more. Oh no.... I'm a lovely shade of bright orange with streaks. Lol. I know it depends on your body chemistry and it obviously didn't work to great for me. :) kudos to the ladies that have a nice looking tan from this product.
I don't understand how anyone has had success with this product.
I'm a very seasoned self tanner and using this was like a disaster, an orange, streaky disaster. Generally when tanner comes in lotion form it's easy to avoid the streaking but not with this stuff. My legs were unsuitable for public viewing for about 3 days until I finally scrubbed it all off.
I had high hopes for this tanner, but those were quickly replaced with feelings of disappointment. I used this for my senior prom 2 years ago, and it gave me a really great color. The HUGE issue I had with it was that it bled onto my (white) dress, completely ruining it.
