I love this stuff! I was really scared to use it because I have never self tanned before, and my acne medication doesn't allow me to use tanning beds or go in the sun too much. I have pretty fair skin. It gave me a gorgeous, natural looking, orange-free tan, and for $6.99 I couldn't ask for more. First, I shaved my legs and armpits in the shower. Then, I used a washcloth to exfoliate from head to toe. I towel dried myself, and then used Nivea's 48 Hour Moisture lotion on my legs, feet, arms & elbows. I then applied Cetaphil's Oil Free Lotion to my face. Finally, I put my acne medication to my face, back and chest. I waited for it to "soak in" for about an hour, then I started to apply the self tanner. I recommend starting the whole process 3-5 hours before you go to bed, especially if you're a first timer. I started with my arms (be very cautious with the elbows, use a tiny bit!), then went on to my stomach, chest, back, then neck. Then, I moved on to my legs, careful to use a little on my knees.I applied a tiny bit to my feet, and did not put it in between my toes- that would not look natural. I washed my hands only three times, which I regret. It left my fingernails a little orange, but not enough to notice. I then applied a small amount to my whole face, jaws, and ears. I washed my hands one last time, waited for them to dry and applied a tiny bit to each hand. Then, I walked around naked for two hours. When I woke up, I had an extraordinary tan that looked amazing. I will continue using it often, and I recommend it 100% to anyone.
