I love this product for my face! I have very senstivie, acne prone skin & this stuff works wonders! It absorbs quickly, smells great, has SPF protection & leaves a nice color after a few days. I used it all the time & recommend it to everyone. I had trouble finding it in the store so now I order it from Well.ca (Free shipping in Canada over $20, I order two at a time)
I am pale with pink undertones, and my skin often looks dull due to my inability to tan. I use this product to up my glow, not to get a tan, which is why I rated it highly. Instead of applying this product to my entire face, I apply it to my cheeks, temples, and the bridge of my nose, basically all the places you would contour with bronzer. This gives my face warmth and definition. However, my artistry is often lost the second I exfoliate, a fact which I resent heavily. My skin is not sensitive and does not react negatively to this product, and I don't mind the light almond-y scent. The color it deposits is fairly orange on my pink skin, but does not look unnatural when applied in selected areas.
Although this product gave me a slight shimmery glow, it did not tan my face. I would not buy this product again due to the HORRID acne that it gave me. I used to have acne prone skin, got cleared up, and after using this product for about 4 days, I was developing new blemishes EVERY DAY. This product claims to be non-comedogenic, but it RUINED my skin :(
This works really well for my skin. I am oily/sensitive so I'm prone to products either giving me a breakout or eczema. This does neither. I like the color, not too orange, natural looking.The only thing I don't like is if I exfoliate it removes almost all of the color, but I use the medium/tan one (even though I'm light) and the color is regained pretty quickly, like in 2 uses. If you are lighter skinned but exfoliate often I would recommend using the medium/tan and putting it over a light moisturizer to give more natural color. The fair/light color doesn't seem to do much, at least on me.
Worst. Product. Ever. Ive used it 3 separate times now and each time it made me have the WORST breakout of my life. Like so bad i considered calling in sick to work--and i don't even have acne prone skin! I gave it a few different tries since it says its non comedogenic and oil free but clearly that doesn't mean anything. My skin was so pretty and clear and now i have a face full of this weird cystic acne and tons of white heads AND blackheads!! My chin is the worst---and its so bad i cant even cover it with make up. Ive been applying pimple medicine for weeks now and its getting a LITTLE better but now im peeling like crazy and my skin is wrecked. I just want it to get back to normal! It's been almost 3 weeks since ive used it and my skin is still a mess. I HATE you jergens. (side note---it took about 3, 4 days to break me out and the breakout has been nonstop for over 2 weeks now--its a NIGHTMARE. DO NOT BUY! i will never buy another jergens product after this!
I mix the Medium-Tan color with another moisturizer every morning. Didnt realize what an impact it was making until I ran out and stopped using it for a couple of weeks - I looked like a ghost!
(Using the Light-Medium isnt enough when mixed with another moisturizer - might as well have not used anything at all...)
I love this self tanner! I used to use the Clinique one but switches to this and will never change. I use it every night before I go to bed, along with the body self tanner and every morning my face looks a little darker but not crazy/orange dark. Just perfect sunkissed healthy look. In the summer I use a little bit more and then add on bronzer and I look as tan as if I had laid in the sun. The trick though is to use it regularly. If you use it just once a week you won't notice anything. I love this - I always stock up on it when I see it.
it made my face darker, but left me with whiteheads after each use.
Not really a noticable difference in color. My acne had been at bay for quite sometime and now I have whiteheads all over my face. Thanks, Jergens.
No breakouts. Love that it's got SPF and its non-comodogenic. Smell is very subtle and goes away after you put it on. It made my face a liiiiiitttlleee more "golden" instead of tan (using medium-dark), but like some of the other reviews said, whatever color your face gets will wash off if you use toner n' stuff. I would love to buy this again if it held color longer. :(
