    Comments about Neutrogena Build-A-Tan Gradual Sunless Tanning:

    I have very pale skin and don't tan very well. I mostly get very red. This product gives me just the right amount of sun kissed glow, without looking fake. In fact, even my doctor was fooled!
    Excellent product! I will continue to use it!

      Comments about Neutrogena Build-A-Tan Gradual Sunless Tanning:

      Have used this for years. The color is natural and not too obvious it's not a "real" tan. I just use this on my legs, since for some reason they don't tan like my arms and torso do.

        I think it is especially nice for fair skin - after just one application, the coverage was "just right" on my legs!

          Comments about Neutrogena Build-A-Tan Gradual Sunless Tanning:

          This product has worked wonders for me for the past 2 years. Im naturally very fair with freckles so getting a real tan never really happens in my life. The color is great and natural. I would recommend this product to anyone. Application is easy and it is streakless, but the only con for me was that it can be darker in some areas such as your ankles, elbows, etc. i have dry skin so if anyone else was having that problem, I recommend to moisterize beforehand and then it turns out all even. Love this product!

          My ulta was out of my usual Jergens gradual tan in the light/ medium so I saw this, and bought it. Since it was neutogena I figured it would be a good product. Boy, was I WRONG!! It streaked SO BAD!! And it's hard to apply . Never again will I purchase this. Now, I know why my usual was out a lot.... Cause it's a constant good product!!

          Comments about Neutrogena Build-A-Tan Gradual Sunless Tanning:

          I bought this to achieve a nice tan without actually harming my body. I am very pale, but this gives me the perfect sun-kissed tan after 1 application. This lotion is really hard to mess up. I've never used a self-tanner before this and won't ever switch to another. The only con I have is that it fades quickly. So once you stop using the lotion, your tan will last maybe a week or a little over. Not a bad thing for me, but for some people it could be.
