My legs are white white white...but at least with this lotion, it gives my skin a nice, non-oompa loompa glow and I don't have to worry about blinding anyone when I wear shorts now! :) The keys are to EXFOLIATE THOROUGHLY BEFOREHAND, and DO NOT rush application & to be extra cautious around dryer skin & skin that might get crinkly (like behind the knees, or if you have chubby ankles & if not paying attention to how your feet are flexed when you let this stuff dry, it can create lines in those crinkles!). I find that if I do a thin layer of regular lotion (I really like Dial NutriSkin Dry Skin formula) on the dryer areas, it helps this product not concentrate in those areas. I love how the color looks upon the first two days of application (1 layer per day). Sad to say, I achieve more of a beautiful tan than what I can accomplish naturally during an entire summer but it doesn't look orange or fake. It does seem to me that 3rd layer and beyond does tend to up the chance of streaks & "muddy" places but I think that's more user-error than anything. It does tend to last around a week or so before I need to do 1-2 more layers to "refresh" my tan. As far as the shave-minimizing, I don't know if it makes a difference or not as I normally can get away with shaving once a week anyway. That was the only reason why I rated it a 4 overall...I can't vouch if that claim is correct or not. Also, it'd be nice if it was tinted a bit to make application easier to ensure even coverage. It goes on fairly clear so it can be a guessing game whether or not you've applied enough everywhere. I just tend to rub it in until I can't feel the wet feeling anymore. I love the color it provides, the smell isn't too bad, & it's affordable. Good in my book and definitely worth a try if you're willing to prep & apply correctly!!!
