I got the one in the spray bottle from the Bronze Nature collection, it's in a clear plastic bottle. I was impressed with the color it gave me, no orange at all and it went on quickly and evenly. I like the liquid formula cuz it's easy to spread but be sure to wash your hands quickly cuz it sinks in fast and WILL turn your palms orange like any self tanner would. I took off one lippie cuz the smell was really strong but it does cover up the DHA smell. I got it on sale for $10 CAN, i'm going to try the one with the shimmer in it next. UPDATE:I am upgrading my review to 5 lippies, this is by far better than any self tanner i've tried. After applying this twice I had a great seep tan with many compliments. NO ORANGE AT ALL and NO STREAKS. WAy to go Yves!

I really like this one. I hate the smell of selftanners, but this one doesn't reek! I can actually put it on and leave the house and not be caught in a cloud of bad odour after a while. I wouldn't go to a party or a movie with it on though, I think I can detect a very faint sf smell, but a day in the park or hiking is ok. I also used it on my legs before going to work.(The "summer legs" selftanner version is in comparison a stinker.)This selftanner is clear in color and comes in a spray bottle.It is easy to apply, but you have to work fast or it will sink in where you sprayed it. I find it easier to apply after I have used a moisturizer, as it doesn't really moisturize alone even though it says so on the bottle. It gives a quick, tanned glow - not orange, but natural. It is not just a hint of colour, so you can see a difference after only one hour. If you want a deeper tan, reapply.It smells wonderfull of gardenia, but not too strong.Remember to shake the bottle before applying, and wash your hands thoroughly (of course) after.I haven't finished my first bottle, and I have allready purchased a second one.UPDATE: I think this is the best selftanner for me, it doesn't stink, you see a nice tan quickly, and it makes my skin softer allthough I don't find it very moisturizing. I'm satisfied and will definately repurchase.Just a note:After more than 15 years of being a repeat customer at Yves Rocher, I've closed my membership and account after being treated rudely one last time by their customer service in Norway. Clearly the company has a worldwide issue with their customers if they are dissatisfied, after reading more than one review mentioning it.

I've tried all the products in the new Bronze Nature line so far (spray, shimmer lotion, legs, face, & face anti-wrinkle), & this is my favorite brand that I've tried ever. Very affordable price too compared with nearly any drugstore brand. (With all their sales & internet/mail order specials I've never once paid full price on any of the dozens of YR products that I've purchased.) They make my skin so soft without feeling greasy, & no streaks or orange. They don't even turn my knees & ankles ultra-dark, which has happened to me with SO many self-tanners no matter how sparingly I applied it in those areas. I even love the scent -- kind of a slightly sweet tropical floral scent (tiare flower?), not the usual coconut-type. The only one I might not repurchase is the shimmer one -- it is a bit TOO shimmery for my tastes, but I always apply all my self-tanners before I go to bed & shower in the morning, so it really doesn't matter too much anyway. The anti-wrinkle face tanner is very convenient too, as I can just use it in place of my usual night cream once or twice a week instead of using two products. It's in a plastic jar too, which would make it good for traveling or taking with on vacation. LOVE this line & will definitely repurchase!

I bought the YS Bronze Nature selftanner gel for face for a dirt cheap price so I really didn't expect too much from this. It just sat in my drawer for a while but some evening ago I decided to give it a try. The first thing I noticed was the scent, a really nice monoi de tahiti fragrance that is very nice. The gel itself is claer, which is a minus, since I couldn't see where I had applied it. I used a cotton pad to put this on my face and neck, it sunk into my skin really quickly and didn't leave a film on my skin. When I woke up the next morning I found that I had a nice, even tan that didn't look orangey or unnatural. Needless to say, I'm really really impressed with this product. I've actually never found a selftanner that works for my extremely pale skin before. Nice!

The Bronze Nature 3-in-1 Shimmering Bronzing Self-Tanner Lotion is pretty good. Aside from the shrimmer, it actually develope a nice tan on your skin. However, don't expect the tan to show up the next day... It does take it 2+ applications for the tan to work. (But that's what the bronzer is for...)The scent is exotic. Not my personal favorite, but it didn't make me throw up.The color of the tan is leaning a bit toward the "brown" shade instead of the "orange" shade. (But again, I'm of Asian decent. It could be my skin tone) - over all, I like this tanner much better than the Neutralgena, The Body Shop and the Bath and Body Works self-tanners. The Bronze Nature color is more natural.

I just ran out of my Cap Soleil Spray so I headed to the Yves Rocher Boutique and noticed that the Bronze Nature is replacing my beloved spray! At first I was a bit nervous to try something new as I have trouble getting a non-orange, natural-looking, streak-free tan! I had a coupon so I got 2 for $18cnd which is dirt cheap!! It comes in a clear spray bottle in 125ml/4.2oz size. It contains Tiare Flower Extract so it doesn't have that offensive self-tanner stench about it!! I was surprised that it went on even easier than my Cap Soleil and it turned out so even in color!! I find it's even more fool-proof if that's possible!! My tan develops into a natural golden glow which is exactly what I wanted!! I tried the GlowFusion and I turned a patchy orange, but the YR has it just perfect!! I find even my feet/elbows and ankles have no tell-tale demarcation and I don't spend more than 5-10 mins applying either! I love the spray as it gets all of my body parts with a light mist and doesn't focus on any one point. It's been about a week since my last application and I noticed that I'm even fading more even than any other product too! I've used my first bottle about 7 times and I still have about 2 more doses left now! I find this is the BEST EVER!! I'm returning my GlowFusion and I'm going to stock up on more of this one!!

I am reviewing two products:face bronzer: LOVE this. i had been using the Jergen's stuff and while that was pretty good, it just smelled really badly and left a very slight bit of an orange tone. but the Yves Rocher is more brown than orange. it's stronger than the Jergen's but still looks completely natural. i have a tendency to get VERY tan in the warmer seasons so this was perfect for me. also, on my friend's behalf...she asked me to write a review for her. she tried this too. she is normally pale beyond reason but this looked AWESOME on her! seriously, she looked like she had this really healthy glow and had returned from a tropical weekend vacation. she is a huge fan :)as for the spray bronzer, that same pale friend used it too. she liked it a lot too. (i haven't tried it yet) but just be sure to wash your hands. she waited a little too long and one of her hands was a wee bit darker than what it normally is. but for either bronzer, it's easy to correct if you accidentally have a streak so no need to cry over spilled milk. but overall, we both LOVE the products!

Yesterday I tried the self-tanner for the face "SUNKISSED FACE SUNLESS TANNING CARE" which apparently can be used on the face and the body so that was a plus. I exfoliated my face and then I moisturized. I applied the cream or shall i say gel as they call it. It was easy to apply but because it's clear not tinted it's kinda hard to see if you miss any spots. I applied it in circles (Mr. Miagy style - wax on wax off) and it seems to be absorbed pretty quick. Then I moved on to my neck and my chest which I moisturized prior to the application. I was so excited to see the colour especially after the sales lady told me it would be noticeable after 2 applications. After an hour I didn't really see a lot of colour so I applied the cream again. i let it dry and went to bed. i was happy in the morning to see that the colour developed nicely with no streaks. even my hads were tanned and no orange at all. I took a shower and the colour faded a bit but it's still there not as strong. I put on some bronzer to even out the skin tone and it looked amazing......I am going to put on another coat on tonight to see how dark I get....i'll keep you updated.

My skin has a natural ligth olive complexion (latino) that tans dark in the sun. These products are good in obtaining the correct bronze color and not the orangey type. My goal for now in using a self tanner to hold on to a fading "real sun" tan. I have reviews for two separate products from this line:1. "Sunkissed Face Sunless Tanning lotion" (Teint ensoleillé) Rating=3, which can also be used on the body. This is a gel sort of cream (non-colored) that applies smoothly, but WATCHOUT for giving it plenty of time to dry (like 3-4 hours) without having clothes or anything else rub up against your skin. After I applied this lotion to my whole body, it left a rather sticky feeling. I usually apply self-tanner before going to sleep. In this case that was a BAD idea as I woke up with streaking around my face where I had pillow lines (now fake tanned in) and on my body. Otherwise the product had an excellent end color and the smell was on the more tolerable side (compared to other self-tanners where the soy sauce smell would reek for days). I would use it again, but next time ONLY on my face and hours before bedtime (or any other activity like sports that might cause streaking).2. "3 in 1 Shimmering Sunless Tanning Lotion" (3 en 1 Effet Lumière) Rating=4, since there was a big sale at Yves Rocher I also bought this one to try it out. The saleslady was kind enough to caution me that this lotion has a big shimmer effect (golden sparkles) since for some people it's too luminous. This golden colored cream worked perfectly with my faded tan to instantly bring out the color. This lotion was a lot quicker to dry (I would say completely dry in 1 hour) than the face gel/lotion and easier to see gunky or missed spots due to sparkly color. I did not use this shimmering lotion on my face though, but instead used the previous Sunkissed Face one and this time applying it with plenty of time before going to sleep (3 hours) so it dried properly. I woke up this morning with excellent results, and I had a nice color after I showered all the sparklies away.The only reason I gave Bronze Nature 4 out of 5 is because I am still looking for a miracle self-tan cream that: leaves a deep natural color tan after just 1 application, applies and blends smoothly, completely dries quickly (in less than 30 minutes), leaves no streaking, and does not have that overpowering everlasting soy sauce smell. Bronze Nature gave me very good results with an affordable price tag.

I tried the face and leg ones after reading the reviews here and absoultely love them! The color is natural looking and I had no streaks or anything. This is the 1st self tanner I've used that didn't come out bad on my legs, and I've used a lot (but not the ridiculously expensive ones). The only thing I could have done w/o was the smell, which wasn't so much bad as it was strong. But it was something I could defintely deal w/to have such a great outcome and I didn't notice the smell after about 10 minutes, and my husband didn't say anything about it either. The tubes are a little small for what I'm used to, so I just ordered a few more b/c I really don't want to run out.I have extremely white, almost see-through, freckled skin, and it just came out great on it. I exfoliated my entire body and face in the shower, also shaving my legs. I dried off completely, put some regular body lotion on my feet and ankles, knees, elbows, hands and wrists and then applied the tanner all over. I did this at night and showered in the morning after a sweaty workout and it looked so natural.Hope my review helps!
