This was amazing! It goes on with color temporarily so you can see where its being applied but this subsides within minutes. Blending is always critical with self tanners and this could streak but I thought it streaked less than 'jergens' and 'Mina organics' the other products that I tried. The color gathered slaround my knees because the skin is tougher there and color on …Read more

I got 5oz for $12.95. It was not on sale but just using powder bronzer on my face was not keeping up with matching my body. All self tanners seem to dry out my face like crazy or make it feel cloggy and slimy. I mainly bought this for my face since I can pretty much use any other self tanner on my body.

I was a little hesitant to try this because I have tried 'gel' self tanners before and they have been horrible and sticky and streaky.mthis is like a soft gel. It sinks in so well andmhasma bronze color to it. No streaking at all!! I followed e instructions and got a lovely natural looking tan. Perfect, perfect!!!

My favorite self-tanner!!! Believable color, applies smoothly, not streaky, color stays, smells ok. I think that's all the check points......

I'm in love! I've used Jergens self-tanner for years but I just got a sample of this and it's amazing! The color is the perfect deep golden brown and looks so natural on. And it's basically scent-fee which is really unusual for a self-tanner. It's not expensive and I LOVE that you can try almost all Paula's Choice products for $.80 USD. Highly recommend and I …Read more

This was my last try in a long line to find a self-tanner that would work on my pale skin. I got uneven results just like all the other ones I have tried. No matter how much I exfoliate, I still get the uneven areas. Apparently, self-tanners and my skin are not compatible.

This seems to have mixed reviews. I for one did not like this. The smell was not bad and did not really smell like a normal tanner until several hours had passed. The application process was very long. It took quite a while to apply this and even after applying it took quite a while to dry. This had one of the longest dry times I have ever had to do for a self tanner. The next morning after I …Read more

:( I was so excited to get this, I bought two bottles before I even tried it. The self tanner does have some amazing qualities - first off, it is fragrance free which is rare for self tanners. The self-tanner smell does come after a few hours, but this is going to happen no matter what, or else the self tanner doesnt work. Definitely much more bearable than any other tanner I've tried …Read more

Hallelujah, a self-tanner without an unbearable odor! While applying this, I didn’t smell anything. As the tanning ingredient began to work over the next hour, I did notice the self-tanning odor - but at a fraction of the odor generated by the many brands I've tried previously. With other brands, even after bathing I've had to change bed linens the next morning. This time after …Read more

I love this self tanner and I don't even know how many tubes I've gone through. I understand this self tanner doesn't work for everyone, but it works for me. It's the only one I use.
-----
PROS:
- It gives me a lot of colour, even after the first application (for referance; I'm about an NC20). Other self tanner I've tried barely seemed to show up even …
