This so far is the only self tanner I keep going back to. The thing I hate most about it, though, is the glitter that's in it. I try to put it on at night, let it dry, then sleep. If I do it right, it comes out fine. But sometimes I forget so that means I need to put it on before showering and give it a few hours. The glitter isn't subtle enough for me to walk out of the house with it on. Despite all of this, I love the stuff. The color is instant which I really like. I'm kind of pale, so especially in winter, I like something that you'll see right away and not take forever to develop. If you use it every other day, the color will last. I don't think it's fake looking, but this could be because I don't put on numerous applications. I use one "layer" and that's all. It is just enough to make me look alive, which is all I really want. I use it in the summer also, along with other self-tanners that I'm trying out. So far, I've had good results, so I'll keep buying it.
This stuff is great for my face. It has that instant "tan" look in just a few minutes after applying it on. And looks great for the winter coming on.
CONS: It smells bad and has an awful taste (if you accidently get it on your lips). And has a wet feeling until in dries.
Need something to cure the winter blues? This is a great self-tanner if used properly. Must exfoliate, must moisturize and be careful with knees, elbows, ankles etc. Easy to build up to a nice colour (not too much or else it will be fake-looking) Be careful can be really shiny if using on face (especially the forehead) I use it at night, a few hours before heading to bed, than in the morning i do my usual face wash regime, leaves nice natural looking tan.
This is the BEST self tanner ever. Sure, if you don't rub well and exfoliate (which I never really believed in, because my doctor told me that you can't 'rub off dead skin cells') it doesn't streak at all. Just make sure you don't have any oil on your body! I did that once and it literally crumbled off after my oil bath.
Anyways, I have this in medium and it lasts for about a week after just one application and it makes me look as if I've gone on a two week vacation! Which is exactly what I want, I love looking sun-kissed! I have a very golden undertone to my skin, I've never had a problem of 'looking orange' and the glitters don't bother me at all... Seriously, give this self-tanner a try, experiment with what makes it work, scrubbing, exfoliating, letting it dry longer, using a sponge... :)
Sadly they don't sell it here, but I'm going to get my family to send me a ton of bottles asap with winter coming, dove just doesn't do it for me!
This is the best stuff ever!!!! my hg self tanner, without a doubt! Smells awesome, gives a beautiful glow with a soft shimmer and doesn't streak! What more could you ask for?
I love this product. As of right now it is the only one I use. It gives me a nice glow. The sparkles can be alot, but it looks nice on your legs in the summer. I do not put this on my face because it makes me break out. I rarely get streaks from it. The only downfall is when it starts to fade on me it begins to look blotchy.
Horrible. Ends up being EXTREMELY blotchy. Enough said.
Please don't buy this. Just don't buy it. I bought two bottles of this thinking it was going to be fabulous but it was far from that.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS SELF TANNER:
1. IT MAKES YOUR SKIN BLOCHY.
2. IT IS HAS TOO MUCH GLITTER.
3. THE COLOR TURNS ORANGE, BRIGHT ORANGE.
I hated this, it was soo hard to was this off my skin. If your looking for a good self tanner, you are better off with a mousse self tanner because the lotion ones are way too blochy. Just go to any beauty supply store and look for a mousse self tanner, that's what I did and I'm better off with my mousse self tanner, they are amazing!!
The first time I tried this I looked in the mirror and saw an instant glow. Then my husband came home and asked why I put glitter lotion on my face? I looked in the bedroom mirror...and I looked like Edward Cullen in sunlight. It made me feel soooo greasy and does not ever fully dry. In the morning when you wash your face/take a shower, it feels like you are washing a layer of oil off. The color is hardly noticeable, but very streaky. It left stains on my pillowcase at night.
I love this product. It works wonderfully and it is easy to apply. I found that it took a long time to dry which would be the only downfall. I have tried many things and this one is one of my favourites.
