I usually use Nature's Gate sunless tanner but it was out of stock and I thought I would try this one. The big thing to know about this product is that it is a gradual self-tanner. It should be listed as such on the package. It takes me about 5-7 days of daily usage of this Alba Botanica product to get about one shade darker. I do not like to apply self tanners daily which is I why I like …Read more

I have never seen this before! I was a Nature's Gate user for a long time, and both of their products are great, but this is the BEST sunless tanner I have ever used. There is no stinky smell that other drugstore tanning lotions have. It smells amazing! I have no streaking nor patchiness. I was scared to use at first due to the lotion being white, but no worries! The lotion itself is also …Read more

Saw this at Sprouts and it was this or Nature's Gate brand. I needed a bronzer for the face. I have only used Jergen's before and was looking for a more "natural and cruelty free product". Well, I forgot this was an all body self tanner and did not use it sparingly on the face! What a mistake! Color was brownish orange on me (I am medium skintone) and reminded me of the …Read more

This self tanner has a very nice scent and it is hands down in its class the best in after tan odor. Alba softens your skin while providing a soft natural glow. I would have given 5 lippies but I really wish it provided a darker tan. The upside is that this self tanner is buildable and upon your second application you can expect a rich bronze tan.

I usually use the Lavera self tanner which I love, but if I can`t find it or don`t want to pay the $30, I quickly grab this one. The smell is ok, I apply it with disposable latex gloves. The color is nice but not as pretty brown and natural as the Lavera one. I think it is worth a try as it is only $10, that is like all the other drugstore brands out there and this gave me better color than …Read more

I am really shocked at the poor reviews! I came here specifically to rave about this product... to each her own I guess.

I've used several self-tanning brands including jergens, neutrogenia, loreal, oil of olay and vichy. Alba is by far my favorite. The first time I applied it, it was streaky (even after exfoliation) but I decided to give it another chance. This time I …

I was so disappointed with this self tanner. I expected a lot more from Alba because I use their other skincare products and have been happy with them. I bought the tanner at Whole Foods and thought i'd give it a try since I trust their other products. I've never used a worse self tanner....the streaks on my legs and feet are embarrassing. After scrubbing away what I could I am still …Read more

This review is for the Alba Botanica sunless tanner that comes in the squeeze tube (not the pump) and doesn't contain SPF.

The review of this product on health food sites is very favorable, and I was looking for a cruelty-free version of the Banana Boat Summer Color, and this seemed to fit the bill: affordable, instant color that's still buildable and non-streaky. So, I …
