ST MORITZ SELF TANNING MOUSSE
OMG throw away all ur other self tanning products away bcoz this is the best thing u will ever get ur hands on i promise u and if its not i will eat my hat............. I baught this from my local GEETEES in ashton just because it was cheap £2.99 i put it on during the week so if it went wrong it didnt really matter. The mousse is tinted so u can see exactally where u r putting the product. I began as i normally would exfoliating, shaving, and moisturizing, put on my dentist gloves and away i went, i always start with my face and work my way up from my feet. It applys very vey well with bearly any streeks, the tan developes over 4 hours but i sleep in it then wash it off the next morning. i washed it off to descover the most even natural looking bronze goddess looking tan i have ever seen, and to add to the good points i did not smell like stail buiscuits lol. Acording to a reliable source the ingrediance are nearly exsact to st tropaz self tanning mousse that is £20+. the only down fall is it is quite hard to get hold of i know u can buy it from b&m bargins, GEETEES, and i am awaer that u can buy it on ebay and amazon altho it could be more expensive. the first two ppl which email me at firstname.lastname@example.org i will send u a bottle in the post free of charge.

I have been mystic tanning and using self-tanning lotions for years. The smell is kind of bad but not that bad, in my opinion, they all have akward smells. I used this only on my legs at night and it was sticky and streaky going on. I showered in the morning, the color guide washed away in the shower, and my legs had a slight tint of color to them. no streaks or anything. It is a very realistic color. No orange, no brown..just a natural skin color if you ask me. I don't see yellow just natural. It gives me a tad bit of color so my legs don't look so PALE and ghostly. Oh yeah I bought this in dark

Tooling around the 99 cent store for plants to put in my office, I wandered down the toiletries aisle and found a ton of No-Ad self tanners. They had two different ones, the first said Medium and the one I bought said "Instant Sunless Tanning Lotion" in Dark. The Medium didn't say "instant." I'm really pale, but I always get better color from deeper self tanners, so I shelled out for just one test bottle. The lotion itself is really dark, so you can see where you spread it, which is more important for darker tanning since you really need to see where this stuff is going on your skin! It's on the thick side, but spreadable. I put it on at night and then put on some light pajama pants so as to not wreck the sheets. The stink is incredible--so much like curry that it's embarrassing. My cats are into it, though! Anyway, I can bear the odor as long as the payoff is good, and it is! My legs are the most incredible even-toned bronze! (Okay, so my knees are a little too dark.) They look thinner, too, and this is perfect for my skirt-wearing habit all summer long. I would never put this on in the morning and go on my jolly way to work, but I'd deal with it on weekends or at night. I have plans to go stock up while they're available, and I may just try the medium to see what happens.

This stuff is Great!! Okay at first I was afraid to try this because I read some of the reviews below saying it turned them yellow. But I thought I would give it a try anyways. It turned out to be a very nice tan brown color on me, Not orange, and Not yellow. I don't even have any streaks and I didn't blend as well as I should have! I bet the people who came out yellow, must have had an old batch or something. This works just as good as any ST that I have tried before, the color is very similar to savage bronze. Also the smell isn't as bad as others I have tried. I still am amazed by the price of this, I only paid $3 dollars for 6 oz. And it works sooo much better than the $25 that I spend one a 3.4 oz bottle of Exuviance Crap!! Unbelievably, this is the very first ST that I have tried that fades evenly (and I have tried a lot)!! I will definitely keep repurchasing!!

I wanted to try this last year but could not find it anywhere. This year, Wal-Mart had it in tubes and bottles, and in varying shades/levels. I bought a tube of Medium for about $3. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this gives me a really nice color. The key (as with any self-tanner) is to blend completely. This formula doesn't dry too quickly so you can rub it in evenly. There is NO weird self-tanner odor at all! I had been using Neutrogena and had to stop because the smell is horrible. I use No-Ad on weekends and then maintain the color with Olay radiance during the week.

I think this is pretty good. First of all, it's cheap. You get a huge bottle for $5 (I bought it at Ulta). For the frequency that I use self-tanner, it's a bargain. I don't think any self-tanners smell good, so I don't judge based on that, but this isn't bad...sort of orangey/chocolatey. It IS a little hard to rub in, which is annoying, but the color guide helps with seeing where you missed. I like the color...I am very pale, and I used dark and it came out a nice tan (not orange). I would definitely buy this again.

I gave this product a full two weeks of use before reviewing and have to agree with the other positive comments on this dirt cheap self-tanner. It does NOT streak! It does NOT have that overwhelming self-tanner smell - in fact, I can't smell that starchy self-tanner odor at ALL after applying and drying. Thus, I can actually be around other people and also tolerate myself with this on! I like to mix this half and half with Olay Radiance Reviver (which I also highly recommend over Jergens Natural Glow)) when I want a slightly darker color than the Olay can give me alone, and I gotta tell you, I have not been able to screw it up...even at the knees, feet, and elbows (though, as said below, it's always a good idea to apply regular lotion to those areas before any self-tanner). I haven't even had an issue with color on my hands/nails/between fingers after application...a good washing and quick use of a nail brush eliminates the problem completely. As for color quality, well, it could be more brown and slightly less yellow tinged...it's not a bad yellow, but I suspect with weeks of continued application, this could become an issue. I don't worry about it much because of the mixing with another product, but may find myself needing to "take a rest" from this stuff periodically. All in all, for less than $4, this self--tanner was a surprising success. I'll keep buying until I come across something even better!

Considering that no self-tanner is perfect, this is a pretty darn good product. It was a bit confusing at first, because the color guide (instant bronzer) can end up looking a little streaked or uneven, despite careful application, but the product itself will develop evenly and look great after washing off the bronzer. The color is really quite good--no orange on my blue-based, PPP skin. The immediate smell is not great, but doesn't make me ill. As for the famous self-tanner smell, it's really subtle on this one (much, much less than that on the elusive Jergens Natural Glow). For $3.99 a tube, I'm pleased. Will buy again.

I'm surprised by this product-it's wonderful! I bought it on a whim in Medium. I got the newer one, with a color indicator. It gives me a wonderful bronzed look immediately, and after I shower leaves me looking quite tan. The color is very natural. The only tip I have is for people to put a light moisturizer on before-hand on the driest areas. Otherwise, it works great! I apply this at night on my body, but I've been known to put this on my face before heading out.

Bah..I wonder if Walmart would take this back w/o a receipt. I am anything but happy with it and would rather risk baking myself in the sun than keep up the neverending search for a good self tanner that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. This didn't cut it.
Cheap yes... $3 for 6 oz isn't too bad at all. I was surprised to see that they repackaged this in tubes instead of the big bottles I used to eye. I choose medium.
I waited till the next morning to apply. For whatever crazy reason I really thought I could take a shower, put this one, let it dry, and be okay to go the next day. Not. It was this incredibly thick feeling gel gunk that damned near impossible to spread around evenly. And the smell...*shivers* ..It has that typical self tanner smell but on top of that there is this sweet syrupy scent mixed in. The two combined are just blech!
This does have a color guide. Unlike most people though I generally hate color guides. They're evil. They can't just go on evenly, no they streak and ball up. When I finally got all this one me, it felt so sticky I put a little lotion on top in an attempt to even it out and not feel so sticky. I waited for it to dry... and waited and waited and... yeah. Three hours later I still felt like a sticky mess and the color guide was balling up all over my skin. I finally gave in and took another shower
I wake up to some color alright. YELLOW. Flippin freaking yellow. Most noticable on my legs of course. These are quite possibly the *worst* results I've ever gotten from any self tanner I've tried. My goal was not to look like I have jaundice. Just ugggh.

Without question the worst product I have ever used.
I bought this because it was like no money at my local Savers drugstore, I really wanted to like it because it was sooo super cheap, plus I had read somewhere that professional beauticians use this stuff however...
The smell of it was cloying and hideous to the point of making me nauseous, the colour was patchy, streaky and dirty and it made my skin greasy and gathered in my pores in nasty dark spots as well.
I exfoliated before but this was the worst result I have ever had from a self tanner.
I applied this before going out and although I did give it at least a couple of hours before leaving the house it still kind of just kept on developing throughout the evening, I could still smell it really strongly when I was out and was so embarrased that others may have been able to too. I kept looking down at my legs to see how it was developing and it just kept getting worse and worse every time I glanced down, eventually I just decided not to look anymore.
The packaging is a fright as well.
Just as well I didn't use this horror on my face.
I would not buy or use this again in a million years and would only reccomend using if you do want no social life and to look like you have some kind of hideous skin disease, I threw the rest of mine away in the bin where it belongs.

This is probably the messiest self tanner I've ever used, but the results were worth it. I exfoliated, moisturized (particularly around my feet and knees) and glopped "Medium" on my legs and tush using gloves. It looked like it had smeared etc., but after I showered, an hour and a half later, it just looked beautiful. The shade was a natural light brown with no orange tint (I'm extremely fair but tend to tan bronze); it didn't slide into my hair follicles, like L'Oreal Sublime Bronze tends to do, so I had no little dark spots; and it wore off evenly with no patchiness. As for the odor upon application, to be honest, I didn't really pay attention (heck, I've been using tanners for 15 years) - but I did notice that there _wasn't_ the typical 'oh God, I stink!' thing happening after an hour or so. Coppertone, I've found, is brutal scent-wise (I once had to apologize to someone in the car when Coppertone's scent kicked in).

I got what I think is a new verson of this, it comes in a tube and is only 6 oz. My hubby grabbed this by accident instead of my regular and I'm glad he did. The shade is Deep and the color is a nice warm brown on me. I'll update this when I see how it wears down the road. But so far so good!!

I'm sorry to spoil all the great reviews but.....I HATE THIS PRODUCT!!! omg...i cant stand the smell......its the worst self-tanning scent i've ever encountered...i got this in a medium/dark...it took me 3 applications to get my legs to the color that im "ok" with (came out a light brown) but after i took a shower the day after....my legs were virtually white again with a SLIGHT tint of brown...i even tried wearing this EVERYDAY and my legs still look pasty white!!!!!..i get better results from "one" application from my Savage Bronze(and it lasts longer too)....i will never ever ever bother with this product again!!!!!!!!!!

Overall I'll buy this again, coz it's so cheap. But couple of things that I didn't like: 1. it smells really nasty. My legs stank after I applied it. 2. The design of the bottle makes it hard to get the lotion out, wish it had a pump. 3. It's actually quite light so you'll need at least 2 coats to see a difference. I gave it 4 lippes because it's cheap, and the results are not bad.

The gel version of this is my HG self-tanner. I started using it in college because it was more affordable than the Lauder and Clinique tanners I had been using previously, and somehow I just keep coming back to it. For the record, my skin is fair, neutral, and tends to be dry on my body, combination on my face.
On me, it delivers the most natural color I've ever gotten from a self-tanner--a nice golden-brown glow. It never looks orange. You do have to layer it a bit to get a deep color, despite its being labelled as "Medium-Dark" (do they even make a light version?), but this isn't much of an issue, because you get a whopping 16 fluid ounces of gel for only $5.95. My technique is to apply one coat, wait an hour, apply a second, wait an hour, then apply one last coat on my lower legs, which seem to resist self-tanning more than anywhere else on my body. If I don't apply enough coats, I end up looking just a little yellow.
The scent is light and much more pleasant than the heavy perfumes some self-tanners use to mask the DHA smell, and even the DHA doesn't seem as noticeable as in most other tanners I've used. It spreads nicely, dries super-fast (although not too fast to rub in evenly), has never streaked on me, and never rubs off on clothing or sheets. And as long as I wash my hands thoroughly right after applying it, I've never gotten stained palms.
One caveat: if you prefer a self-tanner to have guide color, this is not for you. Not only is it colorless, but the fact that it absorbs/dries so fast means that it's very hard to detect where on your skin you've applied it and where you've missed. Personally, I've never liked guide colors in self-tanners. They invariably look bad on me and rub off on everything I touch.
I've never had a problem with the aloe gel rubbing or flaking off after it dries, but perhaps I rub it in more than the reviewers who noticed that effect. I've also never experienced a drying effect from it, which I usually do get from self-tanners--even high-end cream and lotion formulas.
Additionally, the staying power is above average on me. I can re-apply it lightly once every three days or so after achieving my initial "tan," and it keeps looking pretty much the same. Other self-tanners, even high-end ones, always required more maintenance.
I used to find this in drugstores and places like Target or Wal-Mart, but I never see it anymore--although most of these spots still carry the No-Ad sunscreen line. Happily, you can get it on Ulta.com for the same cheap price as ever. Even with postage, it's still the best buy I've ever found in a self-tanner, and as long as it works so beautifully for me, I'll keep using it!

I bought the med/dark lotion. Very inexpensive- $4 for a huge bottle. The bottle is kind of ugly, but I didn't really care. I have pale/sickly skin with olive undertones, & dry, dry skin. I made sure I exfoilated & moisturized with a water based moisturizer before using this. I got a flawless (though light & goldeny) tan on my first application. I have 2 bottles of this. One has no smell & the other has a light chemical smell. I guess smell changes by batch. Tip: if the lotion is too thick or smelly, mix 1/3 nice smelling water based lotion with 2/3 tanner. It goes on smoother and smells nicer.

I like this product...I am very fair and I buy the medium/dark gel...I wish the smell were a tad bit better. It doesn't streak on me because I have learned to rub it in really well because coverage is important and I think that's where people get into trouble with their self tannners. I also wish it would give just a hint more colour since it says medium/dark but otherwise it's pretty good...
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Picked this up in Medium/Dark recently, and I have to say, I'm impressed. It delivers approximately the same results as other the self-tanners I've tried (Lauder, Clinique, Coppertone) but it doesn't a) cost a small fortune or b) smell overly hideous. If you're looking for a cheap, effective self-tanner, give this one a shot.

I guess you either love this one or hate it. I desperately wanted to like this as it's probably the most economical sunless tanner on the market--a huge 16 oz bottle and I paid $4 for it. Many sunless tanners, even drugstore ones, will run you $10 or more for a much smaller amount. Unfortunately this one goes on terribly streaky and uneven on me, and yes I do exfoliate prior to using it and I am super careful with my application. Still the color was so uneven and spotty I looked like I had leprosy or something...one time I even ended up with these dark stripes on one arm like I had scratched myself. And I too have had the problem where it balls up and flakes off of me during the hours after it's applied. The color isn't the worst of any self tanner I've used but it's definitely not the most natural either, still a bit orangey for my tastes. It takes FOREVER and a day to dry, too. The one positive thing I can say about this one (besides the fact it's cheap) is that the smell, though bad, isn't quite as wretched as some. Unfortunately I think I will pay a bit more for better quality.
