Great color, very natural. It is a little on the runny side so be careful when squeezing the tube. It comes out fast. Smell is fine, although it does start to have a minor smell of that normal icky self tanning lotion. I love that you can see results right away and that its a build- able product. Would definitely buy again.

I use this religiously throughout the summer. It has coconut oil that masks any hint of that yucky self tanner smell we all know. It adds an instant golden color so you can see where you missed spots and there are tiny shimmery specs in the lotion which adds a sheen glow when your skin is in the sun.
Victoria's Secret recently discontinued this product and repackaged it as BeachSexy Instant Self Tan Lotion w/ Tint, its the same product but its cheaper.
My favorite thing is to add a dab to my foundation and I look like I just spent the weekend at the beach.

I use this product to give my tan a boost after using the daily moisturizer. I bring it with me on vacations and apply it every day. It gives me a tan faster and the result is amazing. I love how natural the bronze look and it has gold shimmers and makes me skin look ever better.

I love this tanner! I have been using it for a few years now, it totally beats spending tons of money at the tanning salon. If the beautiful bronze color starts fading all you have to so is reapply. This is def a must for all year round. It goes on easy and washes off hands easily too. Love love love it!

I bought this at a VS semi annal sale a few months ago and it's been sitting in my cabinet collecting dust. I was bored not doing anything so I decided to finally try it. Wow it gave me great color right away. Really great product. The smell isn't so bad. I will defenitely repurchase.

Ahhhh, i used to be a big anti-selftan individual! I had this naive thought that ALL self tanners were for umpa-loompa wannabes...my attitude towards tanning was "Id rather sun bathe and use sun beds, which i know are very bad for the skin, then be orange"
I am very fair skinned, and was so looking forward to my holiday in Las Vegas...it was so hot all i did was sunbathe.
Sun tanning was much harder than i thought, it was uneven and time consuming.I also got burned.
I came by Bare Bronze in a Victoria Secret shop (obviously), i was so ecited as i am a fan of VS and they dont have it here in the UK.
The pro packaging is what attracted me to it, and i got to look at how the lotion looked and it instanly won over me, it brown with amazing shimmer.
When i first applied it to my legs i already saw a diference in my colour, and already at that stage i was amazed, but what i didnt know is that it wasnt the end results. Next morning i woke up and was screaming with delight!My skin was Amazingly brozed and so glowing!
I really do recomend it, i mean there are many self tan gurus out there, and here i was first timer in it and didnt even know what to do, i just applied it and rubbed it in and had to pathes or streaks!
The only thing that is really bothering me is that after a few days my skin looks dry, which it isnt, its just the self tan coming off. But i learned that mousturising will keep that away.

I bought this because I'm very fair and panicked at the thought of my white legs in a bikini (ironically tried on in the very same store). I put this on in the afternoon and by morning was a completely different skin color. I can't say if it's natural, since it's unnatural for someone like me to have a tan, but I was told it looked like I spent a day at the beach. The price is all right; $18 is a pittance compared to Clarins or whatnot. The biggest caveat is the smell which, 3 weeks later, refuses to leave. I won't return it because it does work quite well and quite quickly, and I do recommend it for translucently pale women.
UPDATE: Nope, taking it back. The second time I used it with disastrous results. My skin looks like I'm wearing dirty camouflage, and my hands remain white while my wrists up are brown, giving me a distinct orangutan look.

Pretty good stuff, probably wouldn't have bought it because of the price - never would've tried it if I didn't get it for free, from a friend. It smells sort of strong, and I can usually smell it for a day if I don't shower (put it on at night, sleep, and smell it throughout the day). It works alright, but the color fades off pretty quickly...and I've also noticed that it dries me out, or at least accentuates a ton of dry spots, on my legs...not liking that too much!

Um, I bought this product on a whim. I was running some errands and while i was shopping at VS I decided to just grab the self tanner I needed there as well. The SA raved about it, so I bought it. I personally really like it, I am a tanning freak, bed and spray so I was surprised that it did the job. I applied one layer of it and notice a significant difference. It kind of smells, wait a couple hours before you put on your clothes, or, do this the night before an event. The price was 18 bucks, which isn't so bad, but I don't think you could get more than 3 full body uses out of it. It is definitely good for a quick fix, I personally apply it with a brush like the MAC 187, or a kabuki brush to avoid streaks and orange hands.

On the fence about this one. Packaging: Gorgeous. Got a little red bottle with a gold cap. Really cute. Price, not so bad, $18 US. A little hard to blend at first. Not as much shimmer as promised. Which is good, don't want to look like Disco barbie. First time I put on a layer before bad, had a light tan next day. Second time I put two layers (it says add more until bronze level is achieved), and the next day the tan looked significantly darker. Got complements- friends said it looked natural. It looked a little orange in some lighting. Didn't streak at all. Not so long lasting, fades a lot in a day without usage. Smells nice, kind of like coconut. I'll update.
i really wanted to like this more.. i had so much luck with it the first time. it collected oddly on my skin where i have stretch marks and rubs off easily.

I love this self tanner, this and st. tropez are the best I have ever used. No streaking at all and it gives you a beautiful tan just like the Victoria's Secret models! Don't let their beautiful tans fool you they don't lay around in the sun that causes wrinkles and they are paid to look good. It is such good quality for the price too I have been through so many bottles of this I started using it right after it came out. If you like st. tropez you will most likely like this one too!

This is probably the best self-tanner I've used. It gives me a very healthy, natural glow...not orangey at all. It deepens into a nice, rich color, and the smell isn't too strong for a self-tanner. Great product...I took away one lippie because of the price.

I think that this is the best self-tanner that I have ever tried and I have tried many! The color it gave me was so golden and even when I washed off the tint, the lasting color was just as beautiful! What I really like about this product is that I can use it during the day and not worry that I stink of that terrible self-tan odor. Don't get me wrong, it does smell a little after a few hours, but only if you sniff your skin up close. The worst part of this product is the price. It is a bit expensive. Also, I scrubbed my hands after applying with a salt scrub and my hands were still faintly orange, but the results on the rest of my body make it worth it!

I like this product because it gives a instant results in the form of a slight, bronzy glow. It turns into a gradual tan that does streak a bit after drying, but I have a feeling it's probably because I'm not blending thoroughly/carefully enough...When I do though, it looks like a have a natural sun-kissed glow. Overall, no complaints and I'd buy it again, although I might look around for others that do the same thing just for the hell of it.

I bought this as a total impulse purchase and am quite pleased I did. I have had next to no luck with any self-tanners (both the gradual ones you use every day and the ones that 'tan' you after 4 hours). It gave me about the most realistic color I've ever had from a fake tan and the smell wasn't too horrible. No streaks either. Smell is the main problem for me and self-tanners. The active ingredient that stains your skin makes me gag. If I was a scientist, I'd figure out a way to make a scentless self-tanner and retire with my subsequent millions.

This is a self-tanner with a gel texture, and a visible shimmery broze color, which is nice, since you can see where you put it, but not nice when it comes off all over your towels. Unfortunately, just like the Bare Bronze mousse, this made my legs itch like crazy, so there's something in here that irritates my skin. It smells nice, like coconut.
