I actually love this self tanner! I've tried a lot and for me, this is the most natural looking one. I have very pale legs and this just takes the edge off without looking orange or fake. It just gives them a nice tone and I'm not embarrassed to show my legs, haven't had a problem with streaking either. I always put a moisturiser on my knees, ankles, heels and any dry areas first though... otherwise like with any tanners, the colour will stick there more. I have not used this on any other areas of my body (just legs) so can't comment on how it would work else where. I'm not going for the whole body tanned look. If you want a deeper colour you just put in on for 2 days in a row.
Usually I end up with 2 or 3 different brands by the end of summer but I've happily used this all summer! I still have a lot of product left too. It's obviously not for everyone but it was just what I wanted in a tanner, plus it's "100% natural" which is always a bonus.

smells terrible, not buildable at all, and the gel is such a weird texture i just can't with this product! makes me look actually fake, could not use it on my face as it would clog the fuck out of my pores which means my tan is uneven. would much rather use a gradual tan instead of instant as it looks natural.

Have to say I'm not happy with this product at all. I don't find it all buildable .. its actually quite dark on my fair-medium skin after one application .. and that would be ok except that it is STREAKY dark. No matter what i do or where i put it (arms or legs) this streaks every time for me and looks horrible and patchy. Agreed, it does dry super fast but for me it leaves a very sticky feeling and actually makes my skin look dry and aged. I have tried them all (fake tans) and will go back to my St.Tropez or my Garnier fake tan products. I must say I use all of trilogys other products and find them to be wonderful but this one is just a miss for me.

This is by far the absolute best buildable fake tan I've ever tried (and I've tried a LOT of them)! Because it's subtle and the color is buildable there's no danger of it being too dark and I found that within three days I had the perfect shade of tan that I wanted and then all I needed to do was reapply it every few days to maintain the shade. It's made of all natural ingredients (no synthetic chemicals) and contains aloe vera and vitamin E to moisturise your skin. There's absolutely no danger of turning tandoori orange as with so many fake tans. The colour looks completely natural and from the moment you first put it on your skin glows because this product contains the light-reflecting mineral Mica, which shimmers. This product feels lovely (a smooth, moisturising gel consistency) and it dries super-fast so you can get dressed as soon as you've finished applying it without worrying about it staining any of your clothing! If you're wanting an instant dark tan use a different product but if you're happy to build it up over a few days (and therefore have more of a natural look) then this is the ultimate!
