This is not the best tanner in the world, but it provides enough color and it's easy to find almost anywhere. The color is slightly orange, but I have figured out if I use a lighter shade first and then apply the deep...it gives me a richer more natural color. I use this about 2x per week. I do recommend this, as I haven't found any better options that aren't crazy expensive.

Eh, it was okay. I might buy again, but only if it was on sale. Color makes my skin a little bit yellowish though.

I bought this to use on my face and to blend in tan lines on my shoulders.After the first application which gave a so so subtle glow of color this went the typical god awful unnatural orange. Easy enough to tone down with my Mia and an enzyme cleanser but not something I'll continue using. If this works for you and you want to use it on your face try spraying it on a makeup sponge or kabuki brush to apply evenly. I had no problems with streaking that way.
**Update** I decided to to try and put this to good use instead of collecting dust on my bathroom shelf so I tried it as a once a day replacement for foundation/TM since they melt off in this god awful heat and humidity. I shot a few sprays of this into my palm with my Neutrogena retinol moisturizer with spf, rubbed my hands together to mix, applied to my face and neck and the results were fantastic! Been using it ever since. I get a great glow with enough color to forgo foundation for the day with no color transfer or melt down issues. It evens my skin tone nicely and develops super quick. For more coverage or polish I just add some Halo powder on top and some concealer under my eyes. I've read that retinol is supposed to prevent the active ingredient in self tanners from developing but I've had no such problems. In fact something about this combo seems to make this develop quicker and in a better shade then when I applied it directly to clean skin. You can see color almost immediately and the retinol helps keep my skin clear. Since my Mia scrubs off the majority of the tanner every day my normal face washing routine prevents me from getting that god awful orange tint or patchy spots from the tanner wearing off unevenly. I get to have my face match the rest of me without endlessly touching up my makeup. I do have to reapply every day but this stuff is cheap and the can should last quite a while. It's become a quick and easy part of my moisturizing routine. I often do the same with my regular body moisturizer after I get out of the shower to help blend in t-shirt, shorts, or bathing suit lines. Buffing any residue off later on eliminates any odor.

I've tried many many different tanning spray, gels, lotions over the past few years, but never found one that I was too impressed with. Then this past summer I tried Neutrogena's Micro Mist Sunless Tanning Spray in deep. It comes in 2 shades and the other one is medium. I first started using it on my legs in the summer & was really impressed at how much of a natural tan I had. Once fall came, I bought this again bc I didn't like how my face was getting pale. I was a little nervous to use this on my face bc the other sunless tanning products I've used on my face never came out good. So I watched a few YouTube videos and tried it before I went to bed. I woke up the next day and my face had a pretty subtle glow. No streaking, blotches or unevenness. If you follow the directions on the package you shouldn't have a problem. Make sure you exfoliate really well first, hold the can 4 to 6 inches away, spray in a continuous motion without stopping until you've reached the end of your, leg (for example). It only takes about 5 minutes to dry and you start to see results within 4-6 hours sometimes less. It's also oil free so thats why I dont mind putting it on my face. It doesn't make me break out. This is my 3rd bottle and I've never spent more than $12.99 for it and I think its worth it. Just remember 4 to 6 inches away from your skin, exfoliate first, spray the can in one continuous motion (dont ever stop) until your done with that part of your body bc that's where you'll get streaks or blotches. I would recommend this to anyone that's looking for a natural tan that doesn't look orange and is easy to use!

Wow, didn't expect to see so may bad reviews. For me, this product seems to be okay. I actually bought it once before and gave it away--I used it the first time on New Year's and I had a streaky back (not cool!) I don't know why but I bought it again recently and used it without any bad results. It doesnt give me a deep tan, though. I actually really like Loreal's tanning wipes but that's for another review! Most likely will buy again.

Don't do it. Not unless you're a professional airbrush artist or you're into the zebra-chic look.
Pros: -Only took me one application to achieve a beautiful deepness; I have light-medium skin with lots of yellow undertones. -The color would be perfect if it applied evenly: like you've just returned from the islands. -Dries very quickly, does not rub off on clothing. -develops in a reasonable amount of time; full development in about 8 hours in my experience. -smells lovely for about the first hour then dries to a more traditional ST, um, aroma.
Cons: -Streaks and stripes galore.Even with rubbing (which the bottle suggests isn't necessary). -Fades quickly! Within two days. Say after the first night you use it, you wake up and notice that you've missed many spots (which is highly likely since this goes on clear and it's difficult to see what's been covered) so you cover the missed spots. 8 hours later, everything is looking good. You wake up the second morning of use to find the first application has faded and now you have a brand new set of stripes and faded spots you have to cover (this has been my experience.)
Overall: love the formula, hate the application and lack of staying power.

This is called "micro-mist airbrush sunless tan" now. Deep goes 3 shades darker than your skintone. So if you have very pale white skin, it's not going to give you a dark glow with one use. For that reason, it also prevents streaking and a fake looking orange. I have light-medium skin and don't see alot of darkening. Is this stuff subtle? Two to four hours to wait and see is a long time. That's why I prefer the colored foam bronzers.

I really liked this product. I used it on my face and body and it looked pretty good. It wasn't really orange or streaky. Although it runs out very quickly! Especially if you're using it on your whole body. The bottle is $10.. and if you did your body a couple times a week, you'd be buying a bottle a week.. which adds up. I will most likely be repurchasing. Took one lippie off for the terrible chemical smell.

Since I really liked Neutrogena's tanning lotion, I figured the spray stuff would be a good product also. It goes on evenly and consistently, although it smells TERRIBLE. This is probably due to the dihydroxyacetone, which is the key ingredient in all sunless tanners. Anyway, I looked subtly tanned, without the UVA/UVB damage. One tip I have is to apply it more heavily to areas you want to slenderize-it makes your muscles look toned and defined. At first, I attributed this to my yoga classes, but now I realize it was this all along.

love this sunless tanner this is the first sunnless tanning product I had ever found that did give me a nice bronze tan , and never gives me streaks , always comes out looking even . and fades like a natural tan.I have been using it (neutrogena brands of tanners)for years. and the good things about the tan developing slowly is you can wash your hands during and after applying it and you wont come out with tanned palms.

I have pale skin and i still found this worked really well. as long as you followed the directions and held it at the correct distance it was very even. it gave a nice brown colour although it took a few applications to build up the colour. I found (as with most spray tans) the can ran out quite quickly.

I liked the spray on factor, but it dried streaky, and with my very white skin it took many applications to get a good color.

I don't care how boring and outdated this looks next too all the new sunless tanning products out there-I still find it to be the best drugstore stuff for an easy and QUICK tan. I literally just spray it on lightly, rub it in, and an hour later I'm good to go. The scent is by far the least offensive of any sunless tanner I've tried. If you want quick results that look good and not too artificial, this is the way to go. There's too many other complicated products out there today that cost more, take too long to show up, or streak and leave behind blotchy results. This is cheap, quick, and effective.
