Looked pretty. Smelled great. Foamed up nicely. Broke me out so badly after ONE use. My skin had really nice lately and I went to Target to replenish my Clearasil Ultra scrub which works great and they were out. So I picked this up. I had heard really good reviews. After one use, I got a huge, painful, cystic pimple on my chin and a few areas around it flared up as well. I stupidly tried it again thinking that it could not possibly have broken me out that badly, but that only made it worse of course. I bought the new Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action scrub that is supposed to help in 12 hours. I'm putting my skin in rehab now with that and my Queen Helene Mint Julep mask. I hope my skin can be clear again. I really wanted to like this!

This product is BOSS. The packaging is simple but cute and gives a generous 6 oz. per tube. You can see and feel the big chunks in it but they do not scratch or tear the skin. My skin is smoother than it has ever been. As I get older, I get less little bumps of acne and more large cystic ones. This scrub helps every kind of pimple. And it does help to lighten blackheads. I am using it in conjunction with Biore Pore Cleansing Strips. My skin is not super sensitive so I am able to use this on a daily basis. I use it as part of my night routine. I absolutely love it...by the way, it only cost me $3.00 at Wal*Mart!!! :)
I recently started using this product. It's February and I'm very pale. Then I came across my bottle of natural glow foaming in the fair/medium shade. The bottle was pretty full, so I must have used this only maybe a couple times last year or something. So I gave it a shot. I exfoliated with caress body wash and then moisturized my drier parts like knees, elbows, etc. I rubbed it in and even by that night I noticed a bit of color. By the second use I could definitely see a nice golden color, it looked especially good on my neck and chest for some reason. I have purchased the medium/dark shade to try next. I actually bought 2 bottles because where I live, this stuff is nearly impossible to find. My only complaint are that 1.) the bottle is small for the price ($8), 2.) it can be a it hard to pump out, especially if your hands are slick from The tanner, and 3.) I tried the trick of blending it into my hands but it turned them very orange. I guess for now I will just not put it on my hands. White hands are better than orange hands after all. All in all though, I love this product! Dries quickly and gives believable results quickly. 2 people at work tonight asked if I had been going tanning. :)
