Love the new formula! I used to hate this lotion because of the terrible smells but the new version doesn't have that terrible self tanner smell. It's very moisturizing and sinks in quickly. I also love the "3 days to glow" version even though the bottle is so small. This lotion gives you a pretty natural looking glow in my opinion. I spray tan weekly and use this to maintain the color. If you're very pale/picky about the color your tan is you may not like this. I will definitely repurchase both the original lotion and the express version when I run out
I love this stuff. It's the only tanner that gives me a natural brown color and not orange. I love that it comes out white like a regular lotion and not brown. The brown is just to messy for me and it stains EVERYTHING. I've yet to stain anything with Jergens. And it's really cheap for the amount you get. I get mine at walmart for 8 bux for 7.5 fl oz. Most tanners are only 5 fl oz and are a lot more expensive. I love this product! It's great.
I've used this product on and off since it came out back when I was in high school..I really like it. Yes the smell is nasty but i am pretty sure its impossible to make a self tanning cream that doesnt smell like death bc every single self tanner smells like this. I use it before bed..wait about 15 mins, get dressed then go to bed. When i wake up I take a shower and the smell goes away. The color gradually gets darker day by day and I feel like it gives me a natural glow. Never has anyone asked me if I use self tanner when I use this stuff like some people have with other products I've used. I think its different with every skin tone but I do not think it makes me look orange at all.
My friend gave me a bottle of this because she hated the smell. However, they have since made one without "odor" the new scent is great, it's not odorless but smells fresh which I love! Clearly I repurchased this self tanner because I loved what it did to my legs, the only place I use it since they turn yellow after the summer. I use it about 4 times a week, it definitely made my legs GLOW! I could see how this could appear orange on certain skin stones but maybe try building up by using it every other day? I am an NC35-40 depending on the time of the year so I am of medium skin tone possibly making my results more desirable. I used the light to medium skin tone!
The Color was fantastic, but i take pale skin over acne any day. Which is just what this product caused! After a few days of use, i noticed white and black heads appearing all over my face, especially around my chin! This product is cheap and unsatisfactory. I will NEVER risk buying another Jergans product again. i do not suggest buy this product, unless you wish to have a large quantity of unattractive zits all over you face.
I was so excited when I bought this product thinking that I could finally have tanned legs. I was excited the first time I noticed a difference in my leg color. Then within 3 days of using this product, my legs/feet turned orange. It was embarrassing. If you could do something to make this product create a more natural tan (not orange or yellowish orange), you'd get my attention and my money.
Worst thing I've ever used, period. So glad I received it as a gift so that I didn't have to be upset for wasting my own money on it. I wouldn't spend a penny on this crap. Sure, it's creamy and pretty, but don't let that deceive you. First of all, the smell is very bitter. I don't even know what to compare it to, but it wasn't pleasant. Secondly, the bottle fell apart. After opening it a couple times, the cap completely came off. And the final and worst thing, IT MADE ME ORANGE. I used it about twice, it's not like I lathered it on day by day, and my legs were bright orange. It took days to scrub off and I wound up wearing pants in the dead heat of summer for a couple days because of that. Horrible, horrible experience and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but Snooki wannabes.
This product is amazing! I would recomond this product to anyone who wants a natrual glowing tan. I used this when I came back from holiday to lock in my tan and it done the job very well. The only downfall is the smell, the smell is very strong however is worth it.
There are a lot of things I like about this product; it gives me nice colour, doesn't smell too bad and is relatively inexpensive for basically a sunless tanner. Unfortunately, since I've started using this, I've broken out in random bumps on my arms, legs, chest etc. Not a tonne, or enough to be considered a rash but like random breakouts. I sifted through the lowest reviews on here and found that I wasn't alone, not surprisingly, I usually know when I'm reacting to something. So sadly, I won't be repurchasing this :( Otherwise it worked great.
This is not my favorite product but it fills a badly needed niche. I have fair skin and my legs are even fairer than my upper body. I use "Fair to Medium" only on my legs in order to "match" my arms and basically to feel comfortable when wearing skirts and shorts. The color change is so subtle that any application mistakes go undetected and application is super fast. The result is a slight coloration which looks realistic. No one would guess I'd used a self-tanning product. The slight color wears off gracefully after a few days. On the negative side, it smells very badly and is so creamy that it does not ever feel as if it has dried properly. I always slip into pj bottoms or I could never sleep with this on because of the odor and stickiness. That said, I'll always keep it on hand for "quickies". If I should want more color and do an all over self-tan, I use Paula's Choice self-tanner, a great product.
