One of my all time favorite sunless tanners! First off, let me just really drive this home: it smells freaking great for a self-tanner. None of that fake, chemical-y scent we all know and hate is apparent here. It seems to be pretty transfer resistant too. I don't think any self tanner is 100% transfer resistant or non staining, it's just not possible. But this one is definitely one you can worry less about ruining your sheets and clothes. The texture is very light and moisturizing and rich without being greasy. I'm so surprised at how light it is, literally none of that trademark self tanned gross and sticky sensation will be on your skin. You will feel light and moisturized. It seems to seep into your skin very well. There is also a little bit of shimmer, which I LOVE :) When it wears off and it's time to exfoliate away, it comes off easily and the color fades more than it "breaks apart". I got a little bit of that lizard skin appearance on my elbows but I think that's to be expected. Everywhere else, it just faded naturally, and it's easy to completely remove and then reapply. No harsh scrubbing necessary. I was able to get my tan to last about 5 days before I needed to re do it. About the average time for a self tan lotion. The color is very natural....I'm pretty sure you would have to take a bath in this stuff to come out looking like a fake Oompa Loompa. With that said, since it is a very natural color and application, you will not achieve an instant deep bronze, not even with multiple applications. This self tanner is meant to enhance your skin naturally and keep it fool proof. No mistakes, no looking over done. That's perfect for me. However, if you already have a darker skin tone, or you are wanting to look like you live on an island, Dior self tanner may not be your first choice. It is not a very deep bronze at all. The color is a natural tan/brown/gold. The only reason I can't give 5 lippies: the price tag at face value is obviously a little steep. Even worse, the fluid ounce:dollar ratio makes Dior top the list as one of the most priciest self tanners per fluid ounce. It's not a good value no matter which way you try to cut it. However, if you are sick and tired of smelling terrible, being greasy, staining your stuff, having lizard skin, being orange and looking unnatural all while just trying to get a tan without the skin cancer, I say bite the bullet and pay for Dior. It's still cheaper than if you got your fake tan at a salon, and again, it's not messy, it's pleasant, and near impossible to screw up. You will look shiny and naturally golden tan. Well worth it in my opinion!
