Let me start off by saying, I've been a member of a tanning salon since I was 14. I have tried every tanning method there is known to man. Unfortuntely, there is no taming salon near my college so I need to use a drug store product if I want to achieve a tan. Before I went to a tanning salon, I used Loreal, Jergans, Bananana Boat, Sally Hansen, even the Neutrogena Micro Mist... Out of every product I've ever used, I have like this the best and let me tell you why.
Color: The color is a gorgeous tan that looks very believable. What I like about this product is it goes on like a lotion, so you can see where you need to blend. Make sure you blend the product in completely before moving on to the next section of your body.
Smell: I've always laughed when people make note of the smell. You shouldnt be wearing a self tanner during the day to begin with so smell really should not matter. However, if you must know...the smell reminds me of Dove rose. It's very pleasent and I actually would love to have a lotion that scent.
Price: The price ranges from place to place but I purchased mine for about $9. It's cheap on a scale of a tanning salon but kind of extensive for a drug store tanning product. Especially considering the size of the bottle.
Tips: With any self tanner, you should apply it over night. Sunless tanners in general react to body heat which is greatly produced while you are sleeping. You will get the deepest tan possible by applying it before you go to bed.
Experience: Day 1- I applied this during the day in need of a tan for later that day. I was disappointed that I received no color.
Day 2- I applied over night and I was impressed. I didn't apply evenly thinking that it would hardly give me a color...boy was I wrong.
Day 3- A week later I applied this product again, this time evening and thickly. I was blessed with this beautiful medium bronze tan. I can't wait to apply this tonight to get a darker tan.
