After using a few different self tanners with terrible results, I gave this a go. I love the fact that it blends nicely without streaking (last brand I tried was SO streaky it was embarrassing..I had to scrub off as best I could with a pumice stone and lava soap..ouch!). It gives you instant color, and it only takes 1 application to really get a tan going. I use it once every two days and it keeps me from looking washed out. I also have been using it on my face without any break-outs. It does smell..I notice the smell most on my hands if I haven't washed them thoroughly. I have a little trick to keep from smelling bad. Before applying I wash my hands, let dry, then apply a little lotion on them - as a barrier. I don't use lotion on my body or the tanner doesn't seem to absorb properly. I just use my hands and smooth it on in circles and then go back over and rub it in really well. As soon as i am done I wash my hands with Lava soap, making sure to clean the sides of the palms and in between fingers as well. (I tried gloves, it was a hopeless mess). This is slightly on the orange side. Use with caution. 1-2 applications of this stuff is PLENTY. Believe me, I went from an NC15 to NC25 after using it just once. Now I just use it to keep up the color. ---- UPDATE ---- I have been using this on my face (yes..FACE)...without any breakouts and best of all it has improved my skin texture and color SO much. I don't wear as much foundation as I used to...I can't get over how glowy and even my face looks. I will continue to use this as my face lotion!! I use it 1-2 times a week on my face and neck, and 2 times a week on the rest of my body to keep the tan going. It's my little miracle!
