I have purchased the Sun labs Ultra dark lotion. I have applied it with and without gloves and it was very streaky and left my hands also colored (eventhough after few washes it went of). The best solution was to use a tanning mitt and it worked well.
However, the biggest problem I have with this tanning lotion is that it does not last !
I apply it in the evening with my tanning mitt and it looks really nice after one layer. I leave it overnight and when I shower the next morning, it all washes off ! .
I don't know why this product does not stick to my skin :( One time I have applied a super thick layer and left it overnight and this gave more color. But it also stained my sheets ..
Soo Im disappointed in this product.

This is really fantastic. You just need to know how to apply it. Exfoliate well before use and like ALL tanning products use a tanning mitt!! Tanning mitts will prevent streaking and will buff the product into your skin evenly! There is no point spending $$$ if you don't apply it properly so definitely worth investing in a mitt (which is usually cheap and reusable) Anyway the product itself is not as easy to apply than a mousse and definitely takes longer to dry. I apply this before i go to bed, sleep and shower in the morning. The colour itself is lovely and natural on my asian nc30. I really adore this colour. Lovely brown. It beats fake bake for sure! Also the scent isnt so strong either.
**update: for nc25-30 girls this is not a super dark tan. Its brown and natural. If you want something darker than try the shade up or build this one up.
Also i tried this mixed in with a light weight body lotion and it works great as a tan maintainer/ gradual light tanner. It is winter here in australia so if youre after just a little colour but not a full on bronze colour, try this technique. Works great :)

This product was great, don't get me wrong. I would not repurchase for economical reasons. It's bit pricey. I paid almost $30 dollars for mine. If I can find it for less online, then I'd consider re-buying. This did make my skin nice and dark instantly! You must use a tanning mitten or else you will have a dark stain on your hands that's difficult to wash off. I found if I got some on my hands I would have to wash right away or else they would be stained. I like how fast this product works. Almost instantly my legs got darker. The product smells like cherries to me.

This product is SO awful. I took a shower last night, exfoliated like CRAZY, didn't use any lotions or anything after and then applied this.
For one, the color guard, or lack there of, blows. It didn't show up AT ALL and I had no idea where I was putting it. That would have been a bigger problem had I gotten ANY color from this product, but I didn't. I woke up this morning with absolutely NO change in my skin color, I smelled disgusting, and even after rinsing the "color guard" off, I still felt greasy and disgusting. Returning this because it is so terrible.

Just fyi you can get this on Amazon for $24 free shipping (free 2 day if you have Prime like I do).
I have bought at least 4 bottles of this and it's my HG self tanner. It dries very fast, smells like cherry almond and looks 100% natural! I put it on before bed and by the time I wake up I'm tan, the self guide bronze will wash off. Any dark spots it may leave washes off. I use Eucerine/Aquaphore lotion (yes, is thick and greasy) on my feet/ankles, elbows and knees. It still tans through it but will not leave those spots dry and dark.
For my face I mix it 1/2 & 1/2 with my normal face lotion so I don't get my face to dark. To do my hands I use a foundation brush to get it on them perfectly- buff, buff, .
You can use any exfoliater you have (non greasy just plain) and I moisturize my body 2xs a day to extend the life of the tan.
The green you see in the tan self guide is what counteracts any orange that a lot of self tanners leave you with.
I just don't see how you can go wrong with this! Like any self tanner practice with aplication makes perfect.
I am naturally fair skinned, this Ultra Dark is not too dark at all. It's buildable, so the more you put on either at once (wouldn't recommend for fair skin) or daily it can build up to be very dark!

This is the absolute best sunless tanner I have ever used! I've tried many. This has a lovely cherry scent and it has a green tint base so that it doesn't turn orange. It is a thicker consistency, so you have to blend it in well. It does not transfer and it dries quickly. This is the most natural looking tanner I have used and I have very fair skin.

I was soooo nervous to try a self tanner since I have naturally very pale olivey toned skin (I do tan well though), but I knew that I didn't want to use tanning beds anymore so I started doing research into which ones people liked the most. Alot of people on YouTube have amazing tans so I assumed they would know something about good self tanners. This product came up ALOT so I decided since the price was right ($16 on Amazon.com) I would give in a shot.
I was sooooooo impressed by this product! I always assumed that all self tanners left you orange but this was not the case! I have only tried it twice ( two nights in a row until I got the color I wanted) and everyone said I looked like I just got back from vacation! I even kinda liked the smell of cherries it gave off.
My only gripe (but hardly one at all) is that I had a hard time getting it to spread evenly before it started to dry so to solve that I just mixed it with a little body lotion and it worked perfect. That was certainly not enought to lower my score though, highly recommended!

Out of any self tanners, this is one of my top favs because it gets me DARK in just one application.
One trick to get as dark as possible in just one application is to NOT use any "lotions" on your body before putting this on..including "moisturizing soaps/bodywash", Exfoliate, and scrub scrub scrub (use a mix of brown sugar and honey and a normal NON moisturizing bar soap in the shower) but dont lather yourself with lotions or creams before using this etc..because if you have a layer of something underneath, the self tanner will not be able to soak in and your tan will be too light (unless that is what you want). Only use a tiny bit around your ankles, wrists, elbows, armpit area, and knees, but do not use lotion all over. That way the self tanner will show up even more.
I highly recommend this one, and always will. :)

One of my fav tanning lotions gets me really dark I am really pale and this comes out a reddish/brown so it's more believable on me. When I am in the sun and I do get a little tan it always has a reddish tint to it so thats y this works better for me. I am also using st.tropez mousse and I like that too. I have tried xen tan and I like xen tan but xen tan comes out a greenish tint and since I am a pale person by nature with no olive under tones it tends to look like I am a little dirty at first. So I stick with this and st.tropez! This gets me darker than st.tropez mousse though. This does take some time to dry not too long though and remember always wear gloves if you don't you will waste some product rubbing it in bare handed ur also rubbing it into the skin on your palms!
