This is very splotchy for the face. Unless I have make up on to even it out, it's very splotchy in color. I really do like it though, but it's not amazing. I just need color in my face. Unless you wear make up every day I don't suggest this for girls who go bare faced - you'll be able to tell it's self tanner. :/ Decent product, and it doesn't have that nasty self tanning odor. it smells good like most banana boat products - but it's definitely a $6 product. I haven't applied it on my body so I don't know how it would look if I did but as a facial tanner this is just OK. I'll use it as a pick me up until I purchase St Tropez, which I will expect better results.

Just purchased this at Wal Mart for $6. I've been a bit pasty since it's wintertime and normally I go tanning at the tanning salon, but I refuse to use anything but the most expensive bed (it has less than 1% UVA/UVB rays) and it gives you the deepest, darkest most natural looking tan. It's $80 a month and I can't afford it right now. I'm Native American & Mexican so I tan very easily and get very dark. But I'm also French and German so I also am fair skinned, but I grew up in California and have olive/yellow golden undertones and normally I am very tan. I moved to Seattle 2 years ago and since then I've been pretty pasty haha cause there isn't much sunshine here.

I've really been dying to try St Tropez Tanning Mousse but it's $40 and I'm a student who doesn't make much money. So as an alternative to St Tropez I've been using this. I don't really care about tanning my body because naturally my body is at least 2-3 shades darker than my face due to exfoliation/washing/etc. So I need a self tanner to even things out. I'm really impressed with this. Naturally, I don't really turn orange with self tanners and bronzers and this doesn't really do that. I've only used this once and it has really good results...but it fades within a couple of days (I exfoliate usually everyday or every other day) and my best friend noticed my face looked more bronze. This isn't completely an even tan - there is a tiny bit of splotchiness but for a $6 drugstore brand the results are very impressive. I wear make up everyday regardless, so it evens it out perfectly. I'm going to put it on tonight...I'll update with my results within a week or two, but so far so good. I'll probably use this until it runs out and save up some money for St Tropez. :)
