I am PPP, pale irish skin that burns easily/never tans. This stuff is the BEST most NATRUAL looking BROWN self tanner I have ever used in 15+ years. I was skeptical after reading some bad reviews, so I didn't purchase this, I swapped for it. I took an MUAer's advice and used eucerin intensive repair lotion for 7 days before attempting this. The lotion has something in it that exfoliates your dead skin pretty much while you sleep. I did not shower the day of using this. I showered the night before. I shaved and I moisturized with REGULAR lotion, not the exfoliating lotion. The next afternoon I applied this with rubber gloves. It goes on looking like pudding, similar to Toma's. It APPEARS to be streaking, but it's NOT. That's just the color guide streaking. It dries fairly quickly compared to most pudding-like tanners. I took off gloves and applied to back of my hands and tops of feet with makeup sponge. Also be sure to go lightly on knees and elbows. I forgot to mention that above. I put on old PJ's and slept in the stuff. I woke up looking like a brown sun goddess. IT WASHED OFF. At first I was disappointed. I put my clothes on and headed for my beach getaway and I planned on applying more at the hotel that night. Well that evening I got undressed and found I was darker! So I didn't apply anymore. Day 3...still a nice light brown BELIEVABLE color. Day 4...fading a tad like a natural tan. No patches, no flaking, no fish scales. Day 5...I put on a light layer of Jergen's gradual taning lotion in the morning and by 4pm I am looking a nice shade of brown again. This stuff ROCKS and I will be paying full price for this stuff if necessary! Pale skinned blondes and redheads===Run out and try this now. You won't be disappointed.
