Wow this product made me a shade darker in just a couple of hours! I used this on my legs because they were super pale in comparison to my upper body. You just have to make sure you rub it in evenly. Apply it very lightly to the areas around your knees and ankles, they tend to darken quite easily. I used this a couple hours before going out with my friends and it looked like a natural tan =) I honestly think putting it on 3 days in a row is a bit much and will probably turn you orange instead of giving you a nice bronze glow.
I bought it for around $15 canadian so i thought it HAD to work since it came in such a small bottle. I tried the Jergens natural glow daily moisturizer before and purchased it twice because i thought i MIGHT work the second time. It didnt. The tan didnt show up at all. Jergens Natural Glow express is definitely worth repurchasing!

Color wise, it is great. The packaging sucks though.. Its a small bottle for around $10. I wish the bottle would be as big as the normal Jergens Glow lotions. I love how fast I can get a nice tan with this though. I will purchase again, but probably not one of my top picks due to the small size.. it lasted me a month.

I love this self tanner! I am a huge Clarins lover but I can't always afford to buy Clarins. This product does a great job on my face. The color is very natural and the quality of the moisturizer is high.
The down size is that the bottle size is a bit small. Getting the cream out of the tube takes some dedication - I often find myself whacking it on the sink and the bottle is quite full. Make sure to take the top off near the end becasue there is always a lot left in the tube that will not come out with the top on.

This is an amazing self tanner; the only one i've ever used and actually liked. its kind of expensive for the amount- like 10 dollars for 4oz, and the packaging is kind of annoying because it's hard to get the last little bit out, so i just cut the bottle when I know im almost out. i have pale skin and this doesnt turn me super orange. it makes me look darker. Im using this to wean myself off of tanning beds. i rub super hydrating lotion onto my knees, ankles, tops of my feet, and elbows to keep those areas from being unnaturally dark. It works super fast and is the best drugstore self tanner ive ever used.

I couldn't find the light/medium product on here, even though that is what I had... wouldn't try that shade again, however, as it turned me yellow - not bronze. That's a problem with most self tanners that are too light for me, however, being super pale and all. The application can be very, very streaky if you aren't careful, so be sure to scrub well in the shower first, and apply a regular moisturizer or plain Jergens Natural Glow first to help prevent that a bit, and also apply as carefully as you can. Watch out on any rough patches or it'll take super dark there. Also, be super careful if you dress or hop in the bed right after, the lotion will wear off anywhere that touches fabric and leave you with white splotches. One pro of the Express is that it didn't break my skin out, probably because it's not a very oily moisturizer. Another big con for me was the packaging - hard to get it all out, plus the plug on the lid broke and it won't stay shut all the way now.

It works, sometimes even before the 3 day time period! Make sure you apply evenly and lightly.

This left an uneven, streaky, blotchy result on my legs. The color was nice and fairly natural though. The smell is quite strong, I didn't necessarily mind it that much. I wanted to like this product as I saw results after one application and it left my skin feeling soft and supple. However the blotchy streakyness is not worth having people stare thinking you have some type of skin condition on your legs. The color had a "red" hue to it rather than bronze/brown.

Left my skin blotchy and uneven with little patches of darker color that wouldn't even up no matter how many times exfoliated. Clogged my pores. Weird that it was so drying bc it feels very moisturizing. Only pro is I thought the color was very natural and pretty; it showed up very well by the second day.

I have tried tons and tons of self tanners recently because of the dangers of tanning! This one is by far my favorite because of the price and how well it works! Even at my whitest I buy the medium/ Tan. It only takes me to uses to get the full color I want, and I can easily keep the tan by using the regular jergens natural glow. Make sure to be very careful around hands and wrists, but that is a tip for all self tanners. I find it best use your hands (without gloves) to apply all over your body, and then wash your hands. Once your hands are dry put a small amount (size of a penny or less) on the back a hand and begin to rub the backs of your hands together making sure you get the tops of your fingers as well! The only other self tanner that I will use is Tan Towels! They work very very well but the price is much much higher, and Jergens really did well with this product!

Just bought this and on my second day of using it. BTW--I planned to only use this on my face because I'm doing indoor-tanning. Doing one 10-min session once a week. I'm putting SPF 45 on my face when I go tanning, so I'm pretty white from the jawline up to my hairline. Everywhere else is a nice tan.

It works FAST! First application, I got amazingly beautiful color--it was a beautiful veil of color, not invisible, but not too much either. I put it on for Day 2 and I think it's too much. This color develops super-fast and dark with no orange tones. I love it, but now I can figure using it every 3-days or so to maintain.
