i love this tanner! im super pale and i used to spend $20 a week to get sprayed at a local salon. i bought this at rite aide on sale and thought it couldnt hurt to try. i read the other reviews about the application being tricky so i had my sister apply it for me. she sprayed me down, and it came out even and had nice color. it has a funny smell, it claims to be citrus fresh, but its more like cheap perfume. in my opinion i think it smells better than the stuff at the salon...but i strongly suggest having a helper, it just makes it easier to get an even look

best self tan i've ever used at home. i have it in the medium shade, which i recommend for everyone. if you only want a light tan, apply once. a full tan requires two applications. anyone experiencing streakiness is simply not applying it correctly. application of self tan requires practice. the colour is perfect and not orange at all. there is some self tan smell but it's not too strong. my friends all think i get my tan done professionally when i wear this!

Wow. Streaky as heck! Totally not newbie friendly!
The can is so difficult to spray, my arms hurt the next day.
All the tutorials on fake-tanning said application is one of the key things to getting an even fake tan. Well, this product makes it so difficult that you're going to end up with splotches (or in my case, STRIPES).
Oh well. Back to gradual lotions for me.

I'm on a review writing binge! I have quite a few stand by products that I take for granted, work horses that simply perform well consistently. This is one of them. I used to love Lancome FlashBronzer, and the Sublome in a tube (looks translucent reddish brown) is a great dupe for the original one of that. But its been reformulated and I wasted nearly $30.00 for a streaky, splotchy outcome. This gives me that shade Flash Bronzer used to, sans streaks.
I will tell you why this really stand out for me amongst the many Self Tanners I've tried, its great for the decolletage area! Many look awful there, accentuate anything but the positive, and applying bronzer there to match your face when you want a tan look (again no real sunning), is hit or miss since the skin on your face differs from that of your neck an chest area (even if you have worn sunscreen and used anti aging topicals as I have and do). You can end up looking splotchy and ridiculous, but this is great on me for that area. I see too many otherwise well groomed, and young looking women with decolletage that looks too dry and older than their faces, in an attempt to have some color there, they seem to skimp on sunscreen or did in the past.
This does not accentuate dryness, nor does it streak, or even stink. It dries quickly and fades very well, which is to say evenly, without having to rub a layer of skin off! Good color, ds price, I like the regular spray version too, have yet to try the one in a plastic bottle vs the can. This works well all over in general, but for ladies over 40, this is great to give color to your decolletage area.

I really don't understand all the negative reviews on this product. I have been spray tanned, and used MANY self tanners and this is the BEST by far. The best thing about this product is the smell. I think it smells very much like baby powder and I NEVER smell that nasty tanning smell. It takes a few coats for the color to show but dries quickly and evenly. Make sure to cover your feet or lay down a towel cause the bottom of my feet turned orange. I will def repurchase.

I can't believe more people haven't mentioned the smell. I got the Dry mist for face and it has an absolutely terrible smell! I am the palest of the pale, desperate for a tan, and I will not use this for fear of someone thinking I ran over a skunk. I really like the L'Oreal Sublime Bronze sunblock with tanner, though! That stuff smells really good, looks natural, and moisturizes. I'd go for that instead next time...

In my opinion this is the best self tanner on the market. I dont like lotions bc I think they are too hard to manipulate, streak easily, etc. This spray is just like Mystic Tan. Shower. Exfoliate if you need to. Get out. Dry off. Moisturize. Wait like 15 minutes. Then put a towel down in the tub for your feet and spray away. I focus on my shoulders, arm, thighs, butt, stomach. The product falls onto your feet, so I go extremely light. Once you do your whole body, theyve already been hit, so dont go overboard. On my face I go lightly too. I hit my cheek hollows and bridge of my nose and under chin extra.
Dont dry with a towel and dont get dressed for at least 10-15 minutes. Wear loose clothing if you can. The best time is to do this on the night before you wash your sheets and tan before you go to bed so you dont have to walk around smelling like crackers all day.
You will be a bronzed goddess. : )

I will definitely not use this product again...the one pro is that it did dry fairly quickly and had no unpleasant smell. However, 24 hours or so after this sets in, it's very patchy because when you are spraying it's difficult to tell where you hit and miss. Perhaps if I had more of a base tan before using this product, it wouldn't have looked as bad. The wrorst part about this product was about a week later after it was flaking off - it looks like you have a horrible skin disease (I actually had a coworker ask me what was wrong with my elbows!) I was able to exfoliate off some of it but other parts were really stuck to my skin and took nearly a month to wear off, it just looked really gross.

As other reviewers have mentioned it is very hard to get this even. I think it may have to do with how the active ingredient is suspended in the mist. It is a nice tan color, the packaging is good and it drys fast. I really wanted this to work and so I gave it three tries. Alas it never went on evenly. I will not repurchase.

This definitely isn't the best airbrush tanner out there for the following reasons: Takes quite a while for the color to develop (and I prefer an instant color) also it doesnt get very dark unless you keep applying.
However, it is good because i hate rubbing it in and no orange hands! Doesn't smell bad on skin and leaves color on for a few days :) So I use it the night before I need to look tan. I usually use about 3 coats, be careful to allow it to fully dry. It works, not the best like I said but not the worst.
