I've been using this for years but I can't say I love or hate it...it's just alright it does the job but it's nothing I go crazy about
-gives you tint of color
-smells like self tanner
-can be streaky
-can't use on face (it broke me out!)

This is an average self tanner. I use it as a supplement to my other self tanning products. I do really like it for giving me a healthy glow on my face though. Seems to be the best for that.

I LOVE this product. I have pretty fair skin and was a fake baker up until last year when I developed spinal cancer and decided to stop rolling the dice with skin cancer too lol. I bought this on a whim and decided to give it a shot. I use it at night after my shower and let it dry while I'm brushing my teeth and such. It does have a slight smell to it now with the new formula but really, it just smells like tanning lotion. When I get up the next day, my color is perfect and looks natural. I am using the light/medium shade and will be picking up the face tanner too as my make up is now too light for my body! Love it, love it, love it. :)

I have very pale skin and have an allergy to the sun so I can not tan naturally. I use this mainly for my legs and it works wonders! It gives a natural glow that doesn't look orange and gives my skin a nice sun kiss look. When using this product make sure you EXFOLIATE first! The first time I used this I didn't and the tan looked patchy and streaky, then I tried again a few weeks later this time exfoliating and the tan looks perfect! I highly recommend to those who have trouble tanning and want a natural look!

I originally thought I really liked this product. The first two or three times I put it on, it was giving me a nice, naturally glow. But then it started going patchy on me. I exfoliate extremely well before using this, so I have no idea why it was patching. It wasn't patching on my elbows or kneecaps, but on my chest and shins. I wouldn't repurchase this again.

so first off I need to state the fact that I am WHITE I have auburn red brownish hair freckles and really light skin. I do not tan whatsoever I just burn and fake tans always look orange on my with my red undertones and redish brown accents purchased this product this morning thinking it was a gradual tanner so in a couple weeks I would have a glow. This is not the case for me. I'm assuming it is probably because I am so pale, but I applied it around 1230 pm and it is now around 1130 and I could see a big difference the color is very nice, noticable yes subtle. I exfoliated before using it and shaved so it would be even and used it all over my body it is very even. Except one spot I messed up on my arm :-P lol I think it is a great option for pale people that want a glowful colour without the sun. Or for people like me that have skin that doesn't tan. I have the "No Odour!" version. It definitely is less odour than others but is not odour free. I would just suggest putting it on in the evening letting it dry and then sleep so that the smell fades off. I am putting another coat on tonight, hoping it won't colour me too much. If it keeps working as it is now I would definitely re purchase. It probably won't colour others as QUICKLY as me as I am really fair but it should hopefully workout. I definitely recommend this to all fair skinned people of makeup alley good luck and happy tanning :-)

Love it! The new formula does not have the intense and terrible "self tanner" scent. I can faintly smell it if I stick my nose up against my arm, but throughout the day I don't smell it at all. I have the color Light/medium and find it to be a gradual and natural looking tan. No worries about streaks--just rub it in long even strokes until the lotion is absorbed. Don't expect a dramatic difference in one application; that's not what this product is intended to do.

I used to use self-tanners constantly, especially in the summer, and had a whole complicated system going on that I finally couldn't stand to maintain. This year, I decided I wanted a bit of colour on my legs, but wanted getting it to be EXTREMELY simple. This Jergens Natural Glow stuff is terrific! The "Light" version, on my extremely fair skin, actually makes a difference with one application - enough to even out blotchy skin tone and take off the deathly pallor. Two applications makes quite a difference, so it's not the weeklong wait I expected, which is great. Three looks "tanned" on me, and lasts a week.
Application is fast and easy, no trouble with streaking so far; plus, because the colour change is subtle, if I rush and get a faint streak or demarcation line it's really unnoticeable to anyone else. Plus, the next day's application will even everything out. On me, the colour is a yellowish beige-brown; NOT orange.
I apply right after showering & shaving, so that the skin's quite exfoliated, and I use a regular lotion on my knees, ankles & feet, which helps avoid overdarkening those areas (a big problem for me). I use a fairly heavy coat to make sure I've covered everywhere, then wash my hands. It dries within a few minutes and wearing clothes over it hasn't caused any problems. I do smell a faint hint of that self-tanner aroma as it develops, but it's very mild and I doubt anyone else would really notice it.
I'll be interested to see if I have any problems & have to change my routine in the high summer when I need to use sunscreen on any exposed skin -- whether applying sunscreen over it will cause streaking. If so, you better believe I'll update my review!
Yes, this is basically the same as mixing your favourite self-tanner and your favourite lotion; but MUCH easier, and for the price, I now prefer to save myself the time.

I love this stuff!! The new smell is perfect and does not smell like self tanner! I use it everyday and for the price it's perfect!

I use this product every day! It delivers a believable color that builds up as you use it so you won't go to a party or out with friends and look like 5 shades darker than last time anyone saw you. The color builds everyday if your consistent with applying it. I own the one for your face and the normal one and use both every night or if I'm about to go out to something special. Also great for the price!

I tried Jergens Natural Glow in the past, probably when it first came out years ago. Back then it worked well, but it seemed to me the smell was awful, so that's probably why I didn't use it again until now. I had a coupon for it, and I bought both the face foam and the body lotion and both products indicated that they were "no odor". I applied both after showering, and while the scent is improved, it is NOT 100% odor free. The only self tanning product I have used that is true to the idea of being odor free is Yves Rocher Express Tan. Nonetheless, this is a good product in spite of the smell (which is much milder these days). As long as you exfoliate and moisturize properly, and apply with gloves, then you can have a nice glow in a few applications. I noticed a subtle color change after the first application, and I really liked the color after two applications, so I may just try to maintain this shade by waiting a few days in between applications.

I decided to buy this product because i heard everyone raving about how great of a tanner it is. I got both moisturizers (one for face and one for body) with no odor. Honestly it did have a smell to it but i really didnt mind, i actually kind of liked it.
I gave this a really good try. It says after 7 days you'll see color but even on my very pale skin i saw no difference after 7 days. I used it for 3 weeks straight and after about 2 i saw a bit of color on my arms but that was the only place and i noticed that in the shower if i lightly rub over any place that had color it would rub off onto the washcloth i used. I washed my hands well after every time i applied the product and it still made parts of my hand turn a bit orange and my nails had turned orange as well.
As for the face moisturizer, it does have SPF which is a plus but this made me breakout BADLY and thats saying a lot because i dont have acne prone skin and never has a product made me breakout like this.

Pros: gradually builds a natural looking tan, no streaks after even distribution, actually moisturizes, you can't sweat it off easily
Cons: smells like death, takes quite some time to dry after application, no UV protection whatsoever.
I've mixed this product with my daily moisturizer as well to build colour on my face and it didn't break me out! All in all it isn't a mind-bogglingly effective or brilliant product, but for its price it is quite useful.
Oh, and no orange tint at all!

The new formula that claims not to stink does still stink. Jergens Natural Glow is one of the worst smelling self tanners out there and it's kind of a rip off. There are better drugstore self tanners that are less expensive (the price on this keeps going up every year while the color gets more faint). It takes an eternity to get the color you want and I have to apply it twice a day to actually look tan with the medium to tan formula and I'm ghostly white. After applying twice a day and waiting forever for it to dry and finally reaching a decent shade, you can't exfoliate. As soon as I shave and/or exfoliate, most of the color washes off even though I'm applying daily. Thus begins again the process of building color for several days. Such a rip off and waste of time. You can't miss more than a day of using this either or you end up splotchy despite the revitalizing formulas claims to last two times longer. It only gets two lippies for not really streaking and because the color isn't orange. Don't waste your time and money on this.

My friend recommended this to me and I was kind of skeptical about it. I bought the smaller bottle to try it out for about $12 and I bought the medium to darker skin tone one. I exfoliated and shaved my legs in the shower and completely dried off before applying this. I evenly applied it to my whole body and I didn't really see an immediate result, but when I woke up the next morning OH MY GOD I had the most beautiful natural tan on my skin. I have been using it for a couple days now and it just looks so good! I love that I don't have to damage my skin with UV rays to get a sexy tan. My only complaint is that I wish it had a tropical smell like most self tanners do, this one just smells kinda bland. But yes I would recommend this to anyone who wants a nice glow or to prolong an existing tan!!

I had to write and let people know that the new "no odor" Jergen's self tanner stinks just like the old one. I fell for the hype--after weeks of researching the web, reading reviews, I finally tried it. Let me start by saying I cannot stand the self-tanner stench. It drives me insane. For people who can deal with it, or whose skin doesn't react to it, more power to you--you are lucky because the sun is horrible for your skin and I would love to have a safe way to get a nice tan :( but I can not live with myself when I use self-tanners...and I have tried everything including the highest of high end with the best promises for no odor (my latest--before Jergens--was Kerstin Florian--it stunk too). Anyway, no need to go on and on. Jergen's no odor has an odor. I used it only on my legs last night at about 7:00, I could start smelling it by the time I was ready to go to bed, even though I had sweatpants and socks on. This morning I took a shower, used Dove Body Wash, then Sephora Vanilla Body Wash, then Dial Soap, then shaved my legs, then put Bath & Body works Vanilla lotion on, and I still smell it!!! Don't believe the hype.

I used to get really tan really quickly and almost never burned. Then I used Accutane and it ruined my skin (and didn't clear my acne). I now burn almost immediately in the sun and struggle to not be pasty white thereafter.
I bought Jergen's Natural Glow three days ago ($8.99 at Giant Eagle). I used it on my legs before bed and priced a subtle change over night. I applied it again in the morning and again that night. I've decided to use it twice a day to speed things up a bit since the bottle says it should take "several days" to notice a difference.
I love the light scent and it feels great in my skin. I'm acne-prone so I have to really careful about lotions-- my skins not afraid to sprout a pimple anywhere if I use the wrong moisturizer. iI did notice I missed a spot, but nobody else noticed it until I pointed it out.
I love the way my legs look only three days into using this product. I feel like I have my old skin back!

This product is amazing! After using this for just one day I had darker skin. My skin wasn't darker by much but it was still noticeable. This will most likely continue to get darker the more you use it. Be careful though when you are applying it that you get all over your body and let it dry for 3 mins before getting changed. The price was good and it came with a good amount in the bottle. Defiantly will be repurchasing this product !!

I love this product - new and old version. I originally got it in 2010 during my junior year of high school so I (being naturally pale) wouldn't look too pale when I went to prom. I would apply it at night and wake up and shower it off in the morning and repeat that evening. The color was fantastic. I was a little worried because I naively got the one for medium to tan skin but my friend had done the same and just suggested using it every other day. My skin was so nice at prom. It was soft, I loved the smell of the lotion, and it had a nice slight shimmer to it that just made my skin look extra lovely.
Now for the new one... I bought this last night and tried it out as soon as I got home. The scent of the new one is much more subtle, would go well with more perfumes/body sprays than the last one did. I got the fair to medium one last night and can already tell the tiniest difference - which is great - because I am going to the beach in a few weeks and didn't want to be blinding everyone with my WHITE skin. Plus, the new one doesn't have the shimmer in it, which I know was off-putting to some people. Not everyone wants to be shimmery all day every day.
My only complaint (why I rated 4/5) is the price. In 2010 when I bought it, it was $6 at my Walmart. Last night it was nearly $10. I understand that though, since (in my opinion) Jergens has a great product on their hands with the Natural Glow.

I was really excited to try this self tanner, especially since i've had such great results from the hydrating body lotion and face tanner. This body self tanner smelled awful, made my skin look orange, and was streaky when putting it on. I was not happy with the results at all. I have fairly light skin and the lightest color this comes in which is way too dark and orange for my skin. In my opinion, it seems more like a a medium tone and does not match well with my skin again. Will not buy again.
