I am so upset that they have discontinued this product! Other than the strong self tanner smell that most have, it worked amazingly!! Its a light texture that spreads like a milk. I have a medium skin tone to start with and this product gave me amazing color!!! If you can get your hands on this product... BUY THEM ALL !!

I have used the one for medium skin tones. It also comes in a version for fairer skin types.

This is also one of the newer generations of self-tanners that builds up the color gradually and where the self-tanner is combined with a moisturizing body lotion.

These gradual self-tanners are generally are more easy to use compared to normal selftanners that crave good preparation of the skin as well as a good application technique.

And this is no exception. However the medium version gives quite a bit of color even on the first application. So you might want to at least exfoliate before you start using the product so the base-coat, so to speak, gets on nice and evenly. After that I have been able to get away with exfoliating perhaps once a week and then use the product every other day or so once I have reached the level of tan desired.

This gradual selftan is not however completely streakfree, so pay extra attantion to moisturize dry areas on your body before use and then again after application to avoid streaks or uneven colored areas.
There are more foolproof gradual tanners out there in my opinion, (Shiseido daily bronze if a subtle result is desired, or St. Tropez Everyday if you want more color), hence one lippie off. The pricetag is also fairly steep considering the fact that Biotherm usually manages to keep midrange prices for their high-end products.

The signature selftan smell is also rather potent in this product, despite the quite strong scent of citrus that perfumes this product.

But it still deserves four lippies for me, mainly because it is fairly easy to use and gives a nice looking color, even with a slight hint of sparkle. And it comes in a 200 ml bottle which makes it last longer than most similar products.
