Best self tanner I have found. Good price, and you see results the next day. Obviously you have to be careful with streaking, as with any self tanner, but def. the best tanner i have ever used. I have been using this for probably a year now, and have not experienced any break outs, and my skin is pretty sensitive. will DEF repurchase!!

AWFUL!! I broke out in this horrible rash all over my body from this stuff!! don't buy it! Yuck! I stick to the mystic tan at hollywood.. might be expensive but i know im not going to come out with a rash!

This is my HG fake tanner!! I am so impressed with it.
Yes, you do get a smaller bottle, but for the color delievery, it would take several coats of the larger/cheaper stuff to even come close.
Also, I am overjoyed that this product dosen't make my face break out. After reading a few other sucess stories, I got brave and tried a light layer on my face. No problems!!! I wouldn't recommend using it on your face during the day. It has a fairly greasy feel to it. But to put it on in the evening and sleep with it on, not an issue.
UPDATE: So, this may actually break me out slightly. Nothing major, but I did notice a few little blemishes in the days following using this. Overall, the color payoff is really good and almost worth the slight breakout.

comes in a tiny, tiny bottle, but delivers major color FAST. Its also really thick. I mix it with my neutrogena build-a-tan (which is runnier)and get great results. It lasts for a long time too, and the color is nice. Smells great too for a self-tanner

Deepest color I have every achieved from a gradual self tanner. Color looks natural and the scent could be worse, non sticky after drying (feels kind of gluey when applying though) I did use this in the darkest shade available though I am a pale girl, but that is just how I roll. Just exfoliate and moisturize any dry areas then make sure you rub this in really well and distribute carefully, that is the only problem I came across with this one. (I came out with streaky arms) live and learn though. I will definitely purchase again, I think it is a reasonable price for the color it provides.

I WISH THIS WAS MY NATURAL COLOR!!
I got the darkest shade
This is Absolutely 100% natural looking of a tan, no orange , no muddy grey...etc...i compared with a real sun tan, its like the same ......also this is not too opaque and not too transluscent, as i noticed that some other self tanners are either or...this is like the real tan!
my skin became dark after the first day
i also used this on my face, it didn't give me pimples, i am acne-prone!...but it did feel heavy, and left my skin really oily then it usually is..
but it does deveop color fast then the other formulas
and there isnt such a strong smell as the other formulas
shockingly, the color even stayed on when I was exfoliating my face with Neutrogena's Healthy Skin rejuvenator for like 7 minutes!
and that thing is abrasive, so im like scratching my head, thinking how is the color still sticking??
just be careful u evenly spread it , or else u will get obviously looking marks of brown ..

*This is a review for the Medium Skin Tone color. MUA wouldn't let me add a new review for that color only for some reason.*
have a fair skintone and this product works wonders for a natural looking tan without the harmful UV rays. This product works from day one and takes 3 days to reach maximum color. I don't like how this takes forever to dry on the skin, much longer than Jergens Natural Glow. I don't use this product everyday (I tend to forget and don't really like the length of time it takes to sink into the skin. However immediately after the product dries *make sure this dries completely or you will get it creates a gross goop on the skin*, I apply Jergens Natural Glow Firming Moisturizer in Medium (haven't seen any visible firming results, but I don't use this religiously) over. It seems to work really well to prolong the color. This is my HG self tanner even though it takes awhile to sink in hence the reason I took off a lippie. If you haven't used this product give it a try! For the price (around $7.50) is totally worh it.

Sometimes I can't believe how much self tanners have improved over the years. I was using the natural glow firming and tried this on a whim. It's excellent - streak free if you rub it in well, virtually no smell as it processes, and you get color a lot faster than the original natural glow. For feet and back of hands I put a little on a cosmetic wedge and rub in carefully. I picked it up for $5.99.

This product is not bad - definitely much improved over the regular natural glow. I got the 'medium' one in the Allure beauty box, and it didn't give me enough color after 3 days, so I went out and repurchased the 'medium tan.' What I like about this lotion is that it gives a bit of color after the first application. Additionally, it does not smell as bad as other self-tanners I've tried, though I do occasionally get a whiff of that DHA smell. I do find the med-tan one to be a teensy more stinky than the med one, probably b/c of the higher concentrations of DHA. The color I get is not perfectly my natural tan color (I tend to turn more brown), but it is a good alternative to harmful rays. It is not streaky, but as all bottle tans go, the feet and hands/wrist are hard to get perfect. It's easy to apply, just make sure you blend well and blend it in circular motions. The color is fairly long-lasting: after initial 3-days, I only had to apply once every 2-3 days to maintain the color. As others have mentioned, the container is rather small and would probably only last a few weeks if you used it all over. I purchased for $6.99 at Target.

I absolutely love this. I've gone through 3 bottles this summer already. I apply it before I go to bed for 3 nights straight and I have a great glow for a week. It doesn't turn me orange like most do after more than one use, it doesn't streak at all, and the smell isn't bad--though I put it on before bed and shower in the morning because it's easier and I don't have to wait for it to dry before dressing, etc.

This gave me a horrible itchy rash! I will never use this stuff again.

Everyone says that the size of this product is too small, but I disagree. You only need three applications to get a full tan. Plus, a little goes a long way. I am a plus size girl so I tend to use more product than others, but I still got a great tan with just a little bit. This spreads very easily.
As for the smell, I was extremely surprised. At first it smells good, like a nicely scented body lotion. The next morning, nothing. I was so surprised. Every time I have used a self tanner in the past, I always woke up smelling like boiled chicken skin. This was so not the case with this product.
The key to using this is exfoliating really well and applying this right after a shower, when the skin is just a tiny bit damp. That lets is spread easier. Then go to bed and wake up to a cute streakless tan. No nasty smells.

This product is pretty good. I just bought it 2 days ago and I noticed a result within a day! Easy to apply and not greasy, I even used it on my face (mixed half and half with my regular moisturizer). The best part is that it does not smell bad at all. The other Jergens product (the non-express stuff) smells 5x times worse. I was worried about the size of the bottle and not having enough product, but so far it is just the right amount. No streaking and no stink!

If you were to take a peak under my bathroom sink- you would see bottles of various self-tanners/lotions lined up that will most likely get thrown out when I get around to it. Im super pale and living near the beach in Orange County- my casper legs stick out... I tried everything. I ALWAYS ended up with streaks no matter how careful I was applying.
I was finally coming to terms with being pale white in the summer but tried to give the self-tanning business one last shot. Enter Jergens Express!! After the shower I apply regular lotion on my legs and let that sink in for a few mins then I follow up with a generous amount of jergens... Within a day I noticed my legs had an overall warmer glow.. not orange... not sickly yellow... and most of all.. NOT ONE STREAK! I keep marveling at how even it is... as if I just laid out in the sun...
Now, you DO still have to be careful regardless. Always rub in circles not up and down... exfoiliate beforehand.. and please- dont use this after having a few beers at night and feeling sleepy. (I learned the hard way.) It seems to take forever to dry but all this pales in comparison to having even streak-free natural looking legs.... The smell is much better than every other ST product Ive tried too. Its in the high 90s in SoCal and my skin still smells fresh even outside after applying! Yes, the amount you get it pretty small... but Im willing to pay even double the price since this is a product that actually works properly!

First of all I just wanted to say that I have tried pretty much everything on the market, from the cheap cheap stuff, to the waay expensive stuff and I gotta say, this is by far the best self-tan mosturizer I've tried! I have a natural tan to myself because I'm asian, but I do get a little pasty in the winter and this stuff come on so natural, its amazing! I've been looking for something like this for years and going to the tanning beds was something that was so unconvient for me and also very bad for your skin! Now I've fallen in love with this stuff, even though it cost me like 10 dollars for a tiny little package, but is SOOOO worth it! This has officially replaced my tanning bed days for sure! Honestly, I get the same results if I were to go tanning in the bed, so why not do my skin some good and just moisturize it?!?! Fan-friggin'-tastic!!

I really like this! This is not a self-tanner. It's a moisturizer with a hint of self tanner for you to build up to your desired tan-ness. So if you want fast fast fast color, this one doesn't do it. It develops into a nice tan after 3 days. Best of all, the smell is not offensive and totally goes away the next day after a bath.
I'm a full shade tanner after 3 consecutive days of application, then I apply it once every 3 days to keep my tan in check.
It's easy to apply, no streaks and fail proof. All you need to do is make sure it spreads on evenly. I wish they sold it in a bigger size in a pump bottle!

This is the best self-tanner I have tried in 13 years. The natural color (no orange) builds quickly, doesn't streak and my legs are still moisturized and doesn't smell. The scent is fresh and after a day, my legs and body are thankfully scentless (unlike most self-tanners)
This is the first self-tanner I have used in the past 13 years with the LEAST terrible DHA/self-tanner chemical smell that gets worse as it's hotter outside (yuck). On me, I only have the DHA scent for a few minutes and it goes away. I simply rinse my legs with warm water and the scent goes away more quickly.
I saw a 'warming up' of my skin color (very pale legs with yellow undertones) within 10 minutes after the first application. The tinted product dried about 15 minutes (to be safe) and produced full, warm and natural (not orange) color after three applications. Past self-tanners (Lancome, Loreal, Neutrogena) all disappointed in streaks and the bad scent. As for the price per size, to me it's nothing compared to the good quality, fresh scent and priceless benefits of having authentic tan legs that are moisturized with no streaks and scent. I highly recommend this for most people.

Best self tanning moisturizer ever! I have used Vichy, Dove, Olay,Vaseline, and the first Jergens natural glow self tanner/moisturizer, and none of them compare to this. I bought this for medium skin tones even though I'm fair/freckled. The first day I used it I didn't notice much of a change in my skin colour on my arms and legs. By the 2nd day it looked like I had a natural tan--I wasn't orange at all! I was actually a light tan colour that looked healthy and natural. By the 3rd day the colour had developed a bit more and I was really impressed with how naturally tan my skin looked.
A few reviewers commented on their skin being orange and streaky. Make sure you exfoliate very well to prevent streaking and orangeness--general rule for when using anything with a self tanner.
This is probably the only self tanner that I can put on really quickly and not have to be really precise when I put it on and rub it in forever. The only drawback to this is you don't get a lot of product for your money. But I will definetly keep purchasing this regardless.

I got this productin a package on clearance at target a week ago for 5 dollars. I didn't like the color, and i was too impatient for it to develop, I didn't like the streakiness of the product. would not waste my money. great for a beginner though. the color takes a long time to develop (over a few days) and the streakiness of it is subtle so you can fix it, great for not wanting obvious color.

Am I the only person who turned orange with this?
It had an odor, not as strong but it did. Im very pale skinned but in the sun tan to a nice brown.. i did not think the color looked natural, i came out looking a little muddy with an orangey tint. This is the worst self tanner i used in awhile, gave me the oompa loompa look.. The regular Jergens Glow is much more natural.
I had to soak in my bathtub for an hour and then scrub myself all over to get the orange out, even had to scrub my face-no way can i go to work looking like an extra from willy wonka.
I exfoliated and applied this very carefully I still came out as an oompa loompa-
AVOID THIS!!! stick with the old jergens glow, trust me this stuff is bad
