This product is pretty good, not the absolute holy grail tanner (in my opinion), but it lives up to its claims.
Application is made really easy with the color guide instant tint and the mitt used to apply. I don't think I've ever had any streaking or missed any spots with this product, unless it was some fault of my own. It also dries really quickly and hasn't transferred on my clothes so far.
The packaging I've had no problems with. The pump is really nice and efficient. The smell is quite strong and floral. I've no problem with scent really so it didn't bother me, but it may be different for others. But it will make my whole room smell of it when I apply it.
The color it gives is not fake looking or orangey, but dark. I'm pretty fair skinned and it took about 2 or 3 showers for the color to fade to a shade that looks natural on me. I would only get to enjoy that color for about two days and then it would just seem to disappear in the shower. This product is not long lasting; maybe only 4 days of wear. But it fades evenly and isn't patchy. So there's that.
I also found this product was quite drying, so I had to moisturize everyday or else the tan looked scaly and gross.
I'm not sure if I would repurchase this.. maybe if I got a really good deal on it. But it doesn't seem worth it to me; only 4 days of wear meaning I have to constantly exfoliate and reapply, moisturize daily to keep it from drying out my skin more, plus the massive price tag.
This product delivers a nice color but is very high maintenance, especially for those with fair skin. Be prepared to care for it properly if you want a nice tan.

Dries very quick, without chemical smell. Super expensive but it works well.

I am a natural red head with pale skin and freckles. I NEVER tan. NEVER. This is my HG tanner. I have used every self tanner imaginable and this is the best one I have ever used. The price is a little high but you def get what you pay for. The color is perfect. The smell is minimal, almost non existent as far as self tanners are concerned. Easy application with the mitt. Dries super fast!! Greatest product ever for self tanning.

I really LOVE this self tanner. I purchased at Sephora yesterday, 4/16/13, and also purchased the mit for applying (which is a MUST - keeps your hands mess and stain free!!). The SA told me it does not have a smell, and she was right. This is the ONLY self tanner I have ever tried that does not leave a disgusting smell. I love the pump bottle and love the mousse formula. It is tinted so you can see where you are applying, and it also gives instant color. It develops into a natural looking, believable tan. I will definitely repurchase!!

This is a great self tanning product! It goes on really easy- mo mess and no stained sheets. And it dries really, really quickly.
The color is nice, could be a little darker. But overall this is one of my favorite, short-term self tanners. Perfect for the weekend!

Absolute must! Use with disposable gloves (I use medical exam gloves from work) or it will stain your hands and nail beds. Colour looks very dark, but easy to see where you've applied it. Ensure you have access to a full length mirror, you want to be careful of any dark spots. To remedy these, I just wet my hand slightly and rub in water until dark streak is gone. Wait roughly 30 minutes before dressing, but I would recommend using before bed. Colour will transfer to your sheets but washes out (I have 900 thread count ivory sheets that came clean easily). Shower again in the morning, the water will be brownish, but, when you are done, you will have the most natural tan look achievable. Looks exactly like a Mediterranean tan.
One caveat, it seems to make me a little energetic, perhaps there is an ingredient that does this, so I don't get the best sleep when I use it. Scent isn't too bad, it is a self-tanner so that is unavoidable but once you shower again in the morning, you will not notice after you apply your moisturizer. Well worth the price, I have not had a single person ask where I tan, instead it's comments on where did I go for vacation!

By far the best self tanner that I've tried. So many products look orange and streaky...not this one. So many products smell terrible...not this one. It does have a characteristic smell, but my hubby doesn't cringe every time I put this on like he does the other tanners. Lol. It also lasts for quite a while, so the price is definitely worth it. Definitely recommend.

I have purchased this tanning mousse time and time again. Although a typical tanner in terms of difficulty to apply (always use a tanning glove!) the color goes on a perfect golden color and applies very evenly if you have properly exfoliated your skin beforehand (a VERY important step). It dries in a minute and stays on for several days before reapplication is required. No streaking, no orange hue, dries fast - only draw back is that it is expensive. Don't use as much in the winter, though so not so bad. One note, however, be careful if you apply it to your face. It can make you look healthier but if applied too heavily it can make your complexion muddy and bring out problem areas. Otherwise, it is the best tanner I have found.

The BEST self tanner ever made. It transforms my casper like skin into a lovely bronze (non orange) colour that looks NATURAL!! I've had issues with every other self-tanner I've applied and had given up until my sis-in-law recommended this.
It gives a non-streaky, non-orange glow without much effort. I exfoliate (as you should before any self-tanner) and wear cheap disposable plastic gloves to apply all over, but remove when carefully applying to my hands (I'm careful of this as it is the area most people forget).
It's economical in Aus, about $42? at priceline or myer but priceline sometime has sales. I don't need a lot so it lasts ages.

I really like this product. It gives a wonderful color and lasts pretty long, and it doesn't streak AT ALL. It is pricey, however this item will last you TWICE as long if you do not use the mitt that comes with it. Use rubber gloves instead. The mitt soaks up so much of the tanner and you end up wasting it. It went much further with the gloves. The smell is pretty decent too. A few things I wasn't thrilled with: It does leave a slight aftersmell after showering, especially on your hands (even using gloves). It is sort of pricey ($40 or so), and it isn't a tanner you can put on before going out or dressing in clothes you don't want potentially stained. I've tried probably 12+ self tanners and this is my 3rd favorite. I would def buy this product again
