First off, I have very fair skin, I can't even turn a sunburn to tan. I had been skeptical at first of this product but decided to try it after using the medium to tan jergens revitalizing, which the only downside to that was that it took 4 or 5 daily uses to build a nice color. The Express version is amazing, in one application I get the same color as I would after a spray tan. The only issue I have is that it goes on with no color and so you don't know if you missed any spots for a few hours which may be too late, but with some practice it's not a problem.

I like it. One coat was great - I even put it on my face and it did really well (a very LIGHT coat on my face). I definitely saw results within a few hours. I looked like I had a tan alright. But I do get the feeling that more than one coat would make me orange. I would like to use it again, and go darker, but I'm afraid of the orange undertones. They look bronze with one coat and it looks good - so if you do use this, use a single, thin coat and then assess your tan. Great if you are in a rush and need some color A.S.A.P. Not so great if you want to look like you have a dark brown tan.

I gave this and the other natural glow lotions a couple chances. The first tine I used it and after 3 days it turned me orange with streaks. I gave it another chance.... after one day of using the express I'm orange with streaks . Then I used a small amount of the moisturizer to blend it more. Oh no.... I'm a lovely shade of bright orange with streaks. Lol. I know it depends on your body chemistry and it obviously didn't work to great for me. :) kudos to the ladies that have a nice looking tan from this product.

I don't understand how anyone has had success with this product.
I'm a very seasoned self tanner and using this was like a disaster, an orange, streaky disaster. Generally when tanner comes in lotion form it's easy to avoid the streaking but not with this stuff. My legs were unsuitable for public viewing for about 3 days until I finally scrubbed it all off.

I had high hopes for this tanner, but those were quickly replaced with feelings of disappointment. I used this for my senior prom 2 years ago, and it gave me a really great color. The HUGE issue I had with it was that it bled onto my (white) dress, completely ruining it.

I bought this a while ago and just used it recently. I applied it at night (I had exfoliated and shaved my legs earlier that day) and let it dry for a while before going to bed. I woke up to a noticeable tan. I did make the mistake of applying a bit to my the tops of my feet and ankles where the skin is thicker and I go have alot of orange splotches all over this area. I am hoping I can scrub them off. Other than that I am satisfied with the color payoff but not thrilled. I have medium brown skin and was hoping for just a bit more color for my legs for the summer. I can definitely detect some orange notes, although not overly so. But when I compare my legs to my naturally tanned skin on my arms I can definitely see that the color is not that natural looking. I will likely finish the bottle but will not repurchase. I have heard Bare Excentuals Faux Tan is better and may try that when I run out of this. Also this stuff stinks in my opinion and I had a hard time falling asleep with this on!

I don't get the hype on this...I have medium skin tone, and I just put this on paler areas of my body (thighs, inner arms etc) 3-4 times consistently, to even out the tone...but there's NO color at all! smells good tho

Very good product - noticable results after one use (I like to put it on right after a shower, especially after I've shaved my legs). Very important to not apply to ankles, knees or any other "rough" skin areas as it will definitely darken them more than the rest of you. I'm careful to wash my hands with soapy water right after application to prevent any coloration of my palms after working the product into my skin (and that works well for prevention). No streaking if I massage the lotion in well. I use this throughout the summer to give my legs a nice glow (my legs are pale white otherwise!).

Great product!!! I'm using this for my senior prom that is coming up in a little less than a month, and since I am STRONGLY against tanning beds, I decided to try self tanner. (I got a spray tan last year... NEVER AGAIN!)
I saw this in a magazine, and I figured I'd try it out. I purchased the medium to tan formula even though I'm pretty light right now, but I think it gives a more natural color than the fair to medium shade. I've used the foaming kind before, which I liked, but it definitely smells a lot worse than their lotions. This stuff gives you a tan the first time you use it, which is really nice because you can see where you're putting it. The only downside is that the lotion formula makes it a lot easier to get streaks. Just be careful not to use a lot around knees, ankles, and elbows because they will accumulate product and look darker than the rest of your skin.

This is one of those products that I tried once, and will never try again.
It was recommended to me by a friend who said that it provided a good amount of color in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, I was not able to get that far as the stench was nauseating. It smelled like melting plastic with a dash of baby powder - rather reminiscent of the L'Oreal Sublime Glow line. The more I applied, the more I smelled. I finally had to give up and wash it off. (The smell is still lingering, though.)
So, that's about all I have to say on this particular self-tanner. The only other thing worth mentioning (aside from the ridiculous price of $9.99 for four ounces) is that the texture of this is unsatisfactory. It is a thick cream that feels dry rather than moist, which makes it hard to apply.
