I haven't bought a bottle of this in over a year. In fact, the bottle I did buy still has most of the product in it and remains in my vanity. I really like the color this gives me, but I can not take the smell. I actually got it out the other day and used it, but the smell was so bad that I started feeling faint and vomited. Definitely not worth being sick for a tan! I remain hopeful that I will find something with even better color and little to no smell!
I really liked this product. I didn't think it would do much for me, but it did give me a nice "toasty" color, and no streaks or orangeness. I am basically a ghost with freckles, but this product gave me a great natural looking color. I am using the fair of this product. My color did come on gradually, which was nice, and it even looked great on my arms. If you have any uneasiness with sunless tanner, try this product, its not too expensive, and it works well. I will definitely buy this again.
Love this product! I bought fair and can see a difference in 2 applications. No streaking, no brown color guide to stain your clothes! Dries in minutes too. I don't mind the faint scent at all which fades so quickly. I will re-purchase this forever!
I noticed results instantly after using just one time. The fair color is a bit on the darker side, it is more of a medium shade than anything else. Since I have fair skin, I use only a tiny amount and spread it out evenly on my body. Smell is okay, not too strong though, there are worse smelling ones that i have tried. Purchased at around 6.99 and has lasted me for several months now, i do not use everyday.
Builds up gradual so I can start skipping days. I am fair and used the medium to tan skin and I look like I've spent days in the sun. My coworkers who maintain their tans via the salon don't look this good! No streaking, no orange - just a nice tan look at a fraction of what some of the cosmetic products go for with less result.
Definitely easier than tanning all the damn time!
I like this stuff. It isn't perfect, but it's good.
I've been using Natural Glow the entire summer now (3 months), and most of the time, I get a great, natural-looking, not-too-deep tan (amazing for me, since I am naturally ghost-white!)
It works GREAT on the upper torso area, though it doesn't seem to want to take on my chest. Legs, that's a different story. I have a very hard time getting a no-streak tan there, which usually turns out super blotchy and streaky. I've also had instances where I put on Natural Glow, and got no glow at all. Nothing happened!
I've noticed that it's very hard to get a non-blotchy tan on hands and ESPECIALLY feet. You really, really have to perfect for your technique for those areas, and unfortunately, I have not mastered feet.
A major bonus is there's no sparkle and no scent; when done well, the tan really does look natural.
Jergens Natural Glow is in my top 2 drugstore self-tanners I've tried (along with Banana Boat self-tan). It's not perfect, but it's pretty damn good.
First, this stuff stinks! Second, results are minimal and take too long to develop. L'Oreal Bronzing Lotion is much better.
This self tanner is good for its price. It doesn't compare at all to the high end ones, but it's good for when I need to just run out and get a self tanner real quick! I wouldn't use it for everyday use.
For any of you below that hated the smell, I am happy to report their "new and improved" version is truly new and improved. The smell of the newly done lotion actually smells a bit like my favorite perfume, Coco Madimoiselle. I love the smell of this lotion and the fact that it produces a believable tan on my porcelain skin makes this an irreplaceable product for me. In the past, I had used the Medium/Dark shade and it had turned me completely orange. The key is to use the type best suited for your skin tone when you begin applying. Using the Fair/Medium shade has worked amazingly for me and has taken my skin at least a shade or 2 darker. Enough that people credited my trip to Mexico for my tan even though in real life, all I would do is burn then peel then freckle. Keeping up with this lotion is the only shortfall I see, applying it every day for around 10 days gets me my deepest tan and then maintenance on it would probably be one application every 3 days? Kind of a pain in the butt, but it works for me. I justify it because I'm only trying to maintain this tan during shorts season (in Chicago it's roughly May-September) and I don't try to keep up with it all year round. Overall, give this new version a shot!
The face version is WONDERFUL, I can't say the same for the body one. Stinks more than most sunless tanners and I'm already tan, not pale, and this one even makes ME orange. Streaks more frequently than others. Not the best choice for me.
