Ummm...did I miss something? I don't understand this product. My legs are white like Casper's ass and I bought this in the "medium-deep skin tones" just to really see if there were any color changes and nothing. It does nothing. I like it as a lotion, it's soft, my legs are smooth, it smells good but that's like the result of applying any other cheaper lotion. I don't see any BB perfecting action. I even bought a second tube thinking "ok, maybe it needs more time" and nothing. There is no color correcting, no hiding scars....I really don't get it.
So, yeah, I won't repurchase, it just didn't work for me at all.

Very pleased with this moisurizer. I use it more often in the summer time and it makes me feel like I look much darker. Less harmful and permanent than other self tanning products.

I love this product primarily for the scent. It's hard to describe. But I just love it. The scent stays with you for a while too.

Jergens BB Body perfecting Skin Cream has become my favorite product to use on my legs. I am too lazy to use self-tanning lotions as most of them take too long to dry before you can put on your clothes. I live in the south, and it is too hot for hosiery in the summer, but I love to wear dresses. This cream helped blur imperfections from scars and from unsightly veins - it almost appeared as if I was wearing sheer hosiery. it applied smoothly, dried between when I put it on, applied my makeup, and then got dressed, and didn't rub off on a dress with a white lining. I'm not so embarrased about how my legs look when I use this lotion on them.

I'm using the med-deep and loving it. If you remember BeneFit Flamingo Fancy (which I LOVED) this is pretty close, but with a teensy bit of self tanner. I'd love a giant size with a pump, but other than that, it's pretty perfect.

This review is for the Lighter Skin Tones.

I have always enjoyed Jergen's lotions. When this first came out, I didn't immediately go out and buy it, mostly due to the price. I ended up purchasing it thru Amazon for around $9.

What I really like about this lotion is how well is soaks into my skin and doesn't leave me greasy or sticky. It dries down really quickly after application. It's been a long time since I've found a lotion that soaks in so well and leaves me feeling moisturized.

The fragrance isn't anything special. It is pleasant without being too strong or obnoxious. After a good hour or so I do get a bit of the 'self tanner scent' from it. However, it is by no means strong.

I really didn't notice a drastic change in my skin tone, but I do feel it looks more even. My skin is definitely fair to light without a tan, but I do tan easily. I would have liked a bit more of a tanning effect out of this, so next time I will purchase the one for darker skin tones to see if it will give me a bit more of a glow. I know this isn't claiming to be a self tanner, but I was hoping for a bit of color out of it.

It's probably safe to say I have noticed my skin to be slightly firmer, but nothing life changing. It's just enough for me to notice that my skin seems to be in better condition.

Overall, a great lotion with extra benefits. Worth trying out!

Not a miracle cure but does instantly improve the looks of legs. A bit glowy but you won't look like a disco ball. It's subtle. I enjoy the smell and although it is a rich lotion, it absorbs and doesn't leave you feeling greasy. Just apply the right amount. I use on my arms and chest area also. I repurchase when they're on sale and I currently have two backups.

I purchased this product on a half off sale hoping that this cream would lightly cover the redness on my legs. It has not. I enjoy the smell, because it reminds me of my grandmother. It is a decent moisturizer, but it is not worth full price or even half off.

I bought this in the medium/dark skin tone in hopes of seeing more dramatic difference as per previous review. No such luck. The lotion is a pinky brown color however I have yet to see a change in skin tone and I am about to finish the tube. The smell is pleasant, reminds me of my mother. No shimmering affect left on skin, unfortunately it is recommended on the tube to wait to dry prior to dressing otherwise color will rub off. Not great if you are rushed on time, however it never left marks on my clothes or sheets. Not overly moisturizing either which is surprising considering the thick cream consistency. Did not leave my skin more smooth than other lotions even legs after shaving did not stay soft and moisturized hours after application. Worst part is it broke my back out badly into both tiny whiteheads and cystic acne. Will not be purchasing ever again.

First let me start by saying this review is for the med- tan product.

Im not really surprised at how many people were disappointed with this product. I feel most people are expecting miracles and Jergens kind of set themselves up for failure on this one, setting up ridiculously high expectations for this product. When you purchase a product you have to realize going in that most of the claims are inflated marketing hype. Yes, I understand that companies morally should not promise results their products cant fulfill , etc., etc....... But, it is what it is. I never expected this lotion to perform past its capabilities.

What prompted me to purchase this was the silicones it contains. I know many people try to steer clear of silicones as they are not great for you, but really what is now days?

I used to purchase body lotions from the tanning salon I use ( yes, I tan, but no longer several times a week, only about once a week and use sunless in between) and could never find any other lotions that worked as well on my very dry skin.

I have tons of lotions from drugstore to very high end and none could provide the silky texture or leave my skin as soft and smooth as the lotions I purchased from the salon. I finally figured out what these lotions all had in common was silicones in the ingredients.

With many of the leading brands now trying to stay on trend and leaving out " harmful" ingredients, its hard to find a body lotion loaded with silicones. This one however basically works like a face primer , smoothing and blurring imperfections. So I figured it would contain cones and it does, along with petroleum and mineral oil.

It is absolutely wonderful for giving you silky smooth, radiant and dewy looking skin. The effect is temporary of course, as it doesnt really contain any ingredients that offer any longterm moisture or skin benefits, aside from shea butter and glycerin and these are the main ingredients in most all body lotions. That said, I do recommend using another body lotion that contains more quality skin loving ingredients in conjunction with this one. I use a different one at night ( La Prairie or Pevonia) and apply this one when getting dressed daily or before going out etc.

Bottom line: This lotion is not a miracle worker , it doesnt even offer any great quality ingredients. But if you use it with realistic expectations from a $12 lotion, it really does do most of the things it claims.... temporarily. If your searching for a better lotion with long term benefits and/or trying to stay away from cones, then this isnt the lotion for you. But if your looking for a quick fix for dry or dull looking skin, or just want to have that great skin look, then give it a try. I will now be purchasing this as appose to the $60 silicone lotions I have been purchasing from the salon :)
