      Decided to try a tanning product with no bad chemicals and was pleasantly surprised by this! it does have a bit of a guide color so you can see where the product has been applied, fully dries after about 5min, and smells like a cinnamon-y dessert! For a deeper tan use again after two days

        This is the best tanner so far, I have tried everything from cheap stuff like jerfons to st.tropez mousse and oil, shower tan. And the millions of others I have tried. I have olive skin tone, and the smell after a few hours gets annoying but worth it cause it's been a week and I still got a pretty nice shade. Price is ridiculous though.

            I have fair skin and only use it on my legs because of the smell and because they get less sun than the rest of me. It's the most effective self tanner for fair skin (not orange or streaky). It takes some practice to get it just right. I shave, apply lotion, then the tanner. It doesn't smell bad going on, but it definitely has the smell of a tanner after a few hours. It lasts about 5 days for me

                Love this self tanner. Smells great and it works well for my fair skin. Helps even out bikini lines too. Makes my skin super soft and moisturized. A little expensive but you get a lot of uses out of it! The mitt isnt very sturdy, i bought an additional one because the one it came with fell apart halfway through the bottle.

                  I have a very pale complexion causing my skin to burn easily. Never could get a nice summer tan. I decided to try some self tanning products so I could have a nice glow in the warmer months. Used to use a drug store brand, which turned me orange and smelled terrible. Went on Ulta's website to check out what a little more money could get me & I'm so glad I did! I get best results when using it 2 nights in a row. Gives me a nice even "tan." Since my skin in so fair the pigment really shows. I also have eczema, which made me think the tan would show up patchy looking, but it actually helped improve the texture of my skin! It left me feeling softer than before using. It has a somewhat pleasant aroma. Most self tanners stink pretty bad. This one smells pretty good, although it gets a little pungent after being on the skin for a few hours. I usually put it on before bed and shower it off in the morning. Lastly, it fades pretty naturally. The color usually lasts me about a week and a half or so. After that I usually buff it off with an exfoliant and reapply. I don't think this would work so well for someone with a naturally tan or dark complexion. If anything it would enhance a natural tan. I highly recommend!

                      This tanner smells amazing and is super easy to apply. I'm Asian and have darker skin than white people but not 'tan' especially this time of year.. I found that this barely gave a tan, only darkened my skin ever so slightly. Not super impressed.. I would recommend this to lighter skinned people.

                          This product smells AMAZING and it is very moisturizing. The guide color is great but, unfortunately, you watch it all wash down the drain the next day. I've used this twice now and both times didn't notice very much color remaining after showering 10-12 hours later. I'm not super pale right now, so maybe this works better on a lighter skin tone. It does blend very well and after two uses I still have plenty of product left. I just wish it was darker.

                            This stuff is awesome. I am going on a trip soon and have a naturally extremely pale skin tone. First, it is very easy to apply. It's not blotchy and the smell is much more bearable than most self tanners I have used. I put it on before bed and left it on for 10 hours (while sleeping) before washing it off. I have dry, acne-prone skin, and it didn't break out my face or anything else. It is actually very moisturizing. The color wasn't quite as much as I wanted, but I was also starting from a very pale state. Very pricey, but definitely recommend!

                              If I use Epiduo acne cream 3 times a week at night would this self tanner be okay to use 2 nights a week on my "off" days? Or will the Epiduo cause the self tanner to be blotchy/change colors? I also alternate between Dermalogica Antibac face wash and Purity by philosophy? This product says it won't clog pores but I need the other things for acne due to being active/sweating ... I read that sometimes self tanners are affected by the other products you use??? Help???

                              Did this replace the tarte Maracuja rainforest glow? I loved that product which I used daily and gave an instant glow. I cannot find it anywhere. Does this compare and or did it replace rainforest glow??

                              Can i put in on before I go to bed and then wash it off in the morning? If so will laying in bed affect the outcome of the tan?

                                Yes you can! Just make sure you wait at least 10 minutes before dressing to let the formula fully absorb

                              does this self tanner develop a natural tan after so many uses or is it more of a tempory tan?

                                It lasts for a few days but if you continually use it, you can have a lasting natural looking glow.
