I'm not impressed with this spray. I find it to be very drying, moreso than any self tan product I have tried. My skin is olive but very dull and I Ike self tanners to brighten my complexion. I didn't find that my skin had much extra glow with this, it was a little darker but just dull, dry and kind of muddy looking. I don't think the citrus scent is an asset, I could still smell the self tan odor and the fake citrus was scent was just as unpleasant. This tanner isn't bad enough that I will throw it away... I hate to waste products. It is however at the back of my cabinet, only used in emergencies when I run out of everything else.

THe good things about this self tanner are the medium/light, natural color it produces and the fact that it sprays on in (for the most part) a light mist that needs very little rubbing in or blending. The bad part is the truly awful "citrus" fragrance. It's a nasty, synthetic stench that lingers in my shower or wherever I choose to use it. I would give it four stars if it weren't for the smell. But it is absolutely priceless for using on my back, so I will likely continue to buy it anyway.

*Scent-Orange citrus

*DHA scent kicks after a few hours but isn't bad....(DHA is the 7th ingredient)

*Sprays on clear and in a light mist.

So I haven't tanned in a week due to me being lazy lol but I have been using this....I mainly got it to even out my sides and also have been using it all over (except my face)

The scent is really nice and light! I will say tho every time I sprayed myself or had my husband spray me this stuff sprays on cold lol but besides that it goes on nice and have had no issues with the areosol spray clogging.

After the spray is on it dries pretty quickly wich is great and I noticed in some areas it would feel a little sticky but it was no big deal. Also if you have dry skin that is not moisturized the dry spots will suck up the DHA and look a little orange (I had a little of that near my under arms the first 2x I used it).....After my sides got sprayed tho I'd rub it in to make sure I had no splotchyness. Another plus is that it seems to be pretty tansfer resistant,I didn't see any come off onto my cothes....just remember if you get it on your hands to wash them.

Overall I'm really enjoying this spray a lot!!! I had no orangies going on and this evened out my sides by the 3rd time I used it. The color developes really well,on me I noticed a difference color wise after 2hrs of spraying it on.

During my week of not tanning I used it all over my body and it gave me really nice natural brown color and deepend my exisisting tan. I had no splotchyness or streaking at all wich was great!

I got this at Target for $5 just to test out before I get one of the pricey ones and I'm glad I did!! I would highly reccomend this!!

I felt like my can may have been a bad batch where color wasn't added. It did absolutely nothing to me. Not a thing. I had no color what-so-ever and I am a very pale person, so spray something on me and it's going to show. Not this. Nope!

Ive tried em all.. i was using the jergens glow and noticed i was getting that build up alligator skin look so tried this banana boat spray. I really like the color its a true tan not too orange. The application is strange as you cant just spray it on you, have to spray and blend in with your hands. I like the spray better than a lotion as it dries quickly. The spray is very cooling almost cold. The smell is not that appealing but it fades quickly. I will use this as my new spray tan as it is believable

I absolutely love this product. It doesn't turn an orange color and it dries quickly. The only problem I have with this product is having a white mark where I lay on my arms when I sleep. I apply it before bed and let it dry, I lay, letting it dry, for about an hour. When I wake up in the morning where there was pressure on a spot is white. Other than that this product is great, I've tried other self tanners and this is by far my favorite

I love this product! The look is very natural - even on my winter-white skin. It is easy to apply and can be sprayed from all different angles. To ensure even coverage, I spray it on, then rub it in with my hand. It gives light coverage, so often requires two applications, but I prefer that, as it's easier to apply more than try and tone it down.

The price is so reasonable! I have tried other, more expensive products, but this one is, not only the best, but the cheapest!

This spray tan is horrible. First of all, the smell is really gross... It's supposed to smell like "limes" but it just smells nasty. The product itself is sticky, and even if I apply a very light layer, rub it in, and stand in front of a fan, it takes forever to dry, or at least to become non-sticky. Worst of all, it did NOTHING to me. I didn't see any difference in my skin color. It was a waste of money!! I would give it 0 if I could.

The Good: This self tanner is awesome because the tan is a natural looking tan. Also the spray helps mist evenly all over your body and it does last about 7 days. The tan does not flake off... it just fades slowly which is very nice.

The Bad: It does not smell good. It's not the worst but not the best smelling. The smell goes away within a day. A good tip is to spray tan at night, let it dry for about 20 minutes, then sleep and wake up in the morning and shower. This will get rid of the smell.

I go the lengths of having a tan appearance living in Miami. Having fair, burn-prone skin, I always look to tanners for a no-sun sun look. I bought Banana Boat's self tanning mist spray today at Target (on sale for $6!) and tried it out today. I only have rave reviews for the mist. Not only is the smell tolerable (and fairly good), the mist really flows out well so it does all the work in ensuring the formula gets on your skin evenly. I have always used lotions so I was nervous at first to use the spray, but like I said, it was so easy to use. I waited 10 minutes for it to dry and reapplied a second coat, (for the promised 7 day length of color), and was amazed by how my skin glowed instantly. The color developed a total natural tan shade, not orangey at all! I recommend the product to all.
