I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. Everyone thinks I'm tanning or laying out in the sun all day, but seriously all I'm doing is putting this on after every shower. I'm very fair skinned so sun tanning only burns me. This product gives me an even, brown glow. My Boyfriend also complements how soft it makes my skin :) they also recently changed the scent, which is a huge improvement!
The key to getting an even aplication is to start from the feet and work your way up the body, going easy on the knees and elbows, and REALLY work it in! keep rubbing it in until its getting dry and tugging on your skin. I also think this helps with the FIRMING aspect.
this product made my skin turn orange. it was streaky and very unnatural looking. i am always looking for an easier way to tan. but now i guess i should just go back to the sun.
I purchased this in the darker "medium to tan" formula. I also purchased it in the new pump bottle. This is great for beginners or those who hate to fuss with the prep involved with selfless tanners.
The smell is just fine to me but this is supposedly a newer formula.
Before my first application, I waxed my legs and exfoliated my knees and feet with a loofah in the shower, then I applied this until it was worked in well. It took about three applications to get the color I wanted to achieve (no more glow in the dark but not a Brazilian beauty). After two weeks, I waxed and exfoliated again. This pulled most of the color off. I went ahead and applied two times and got the color I wanted.
The formula is very forgiving. My knees and feet/ankles had some blotchiness after the 2nd application. It was easily removed with body wash and a shower puff.
If you are looking for the big guns though, this ain't it.
I bought this in the foaming daily moisturizer and love it. I'm fair, so I bought the fair to medium colour. It applies easily and not orange at all. I'm on day 4 of use and I look nicely tanned. I'm going to buy the medium to dark next time. This is by far the best self tanning lotion out there for the money.
I loved this product! I dont tan in the sun very well all i do is burn. I was tired of glowing in the dark with how pale i was so i searched everywhere for a good fake tan. This product gave me a great tan in just a few days. It smells great and wasn't expensive at all the only problem i have is with the packaging. Its hard to squeeze out the product once your hands are covered in it. Other than that this product is great and i highly recommend it.
First of all, let me say, I LOVE the smell. I do not know what it is but I am addicted to it.
Okay, now I can get on with my review. I tan very easily therefore any body part exposed to the sun numerous times gets a nice tan...well, in the winter, my legs are always covered therefore remaining light while the rest of my body sees sun. This then leads to light legs and tanned arms, face, etc. I bought this product to use mostly on my legs to have a nice color when the warm weather comes so I can wear shorts/dresses/skirts without any white legs until they can naturally get the color from the sun.
I am greatly pleased with this product. I saw great results in just two days. My legs now have a nice caramel tone to them and match the rest of my body. I am more confident to show off my legs now. :)
Make sure to distribute it evenly and try and stay away from boney areas like ankles and knees because it does look patchy and orangey when applied there. Other than that, I love it.
I've been using this self tanner in the foam medium/ tan and I have to say for the price it's absolutely amazing. It's an amazing colour and I found within 3 days I could see a difference. I could see how it may look streaky on people who are of fair complexion but because I already have a tanned base I find you can barely see the slight streak. Overall many people have complimented me on how tanned I am and I will definitely buy again!
Okayy! So I'm sort of pale and when I go in the sun I don't tan, I simply burn. Its just terrible, I hate it! I started thinking about self tanner and I knew that this product was loved by soo many people because its so popular. I checked some reviews on many sites and decided I'd go buy it. They make 2 colors for this. Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan. I decided to go with the Medium to Tan even though that defiantly not my skin color but the darker one will make you tanner quicker and thats what I wanted. I bought it from Walmart for about $8-9. I went home, showered, shaved/exfoliated, and I put this all over my body including my face. I saw my skin change colors in a couple hours so I knew this stuff was working. A couple hours later I applied a little more and went to sleep. I woke up with a beautiful nice tan!! I was sooo impressed. Only downside is that it made my feet orange, but thats alright to deal with. I went to school and so many people came up to me and said I looked tanner. I was so happy! Now time for that "actual" product review. In the reviews I read some people were complaining about the smell but this stuff smells AMAZING! idk why its just so comforting to me. Another thing is that its soooooooo moisturizing! This stuff made my skin feel baby smooth! Some thing I dont like is the price. I know its considered cheap, but I'm gonna be applying this everyday or every other day so I want the tube to last long. This should be like $5. That would be so great if it was. Another thing is I wish it came in a bottle with a pump. That way I dont this all over the place and the tube won't get all "greasy". Thats all for my review. If you have never used self tanner before I suggest trying this out because I feel like its a classic and it does a really great job for first time users. I defiantly recommend this product!
I have never ever in my life used a tanner, I've never been a tanner in general. I have lots of tattoos, and very fair skin, with a history of skin cancer and all that jazz that works against being a sun lover. I love the look though and I always wanted to try it but scared I would turn into a pumpkin. This basically speaks for everyone when it comes to tanning.
So I bought the Avon daily moisturizer that gives a color difference in as little as 4 days. The product smells like something geared towards our elderly folks, it's sparkly which I hate and did nothing for color and remained greasy all day.
Then my Avon rep randomly fell off the planet so I went to our trusted MUB and saw this product had decent reviews. So I bought it. It's got a nice fresh smell, no sparkle and after about a week I finally got some nice compliments. "Did you go away? You look all sunkissed" so that basically helped with my opinion. It dries nicely and doesn't stay greasy. It's very natural and adds the life my pale skin needed. It also helped my skin look better, it was hydrated and evened out any odd pigmentation. I got mine for $5 dollars at Walmart and I will go back and get more. I have the shade fair to medium and been using daily for 2 weeks. I might even try the darker one since it's warmer and I can get away with looking like I actually sun tanned.
The reviews are accurate. It's a very good product at a very fair price, especially if you buy it at Bed Bath & Beyond that is a couple of bucks cheaper than most drug stores. But I am partial to the aero/foam version which dries almost instantly, as opposed to the tube lotion.
Funny, I was never that aware of the smell so have to give it a good sniff next time I apply. Unless the foam doesn't smell as much or as bad as the lotion. But regardless, think of this as a light tanning agent and not as a replacement for a good moisturizer. Just don't use them back to back...meaning apply one at night and the other in the am for best results.
