Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.

        I have pale skin with pink undertones, and have had great success with this product. It's a great body lotion that delivers a lovely bronze color that lasts. I use it under Australian Gold Instant Sunless Spray and get a great long-lasting bronzed look that looks natural.

            This stuff is great! On other review sites people complain about the smell...its smells like pineapple and suntan lotion...ehich personally I think smells wonderful! I used disposable gloves to put it on and protect my hands...no need for a fancy mitt! The lotion itself is tinted so you can see where it is as you put it on. Dries pretty quickly, about the same drying time as a regular moisturizer. I didn't see the tan within minutes but I went to bed about 15 mins later and woke up a (slightly) bronze goddess! I'm super pale though so I'll likely repeat use ever couple days until I'm summer tan :) ulta had a deal when I got it too so i got a lot of bang for my buck so to speak

                  I've been looking for self tanner again. I love Palmer's but it seems to be discontinued. I tried the Ulta tanner, but the gel formula never seems to dry. My skin stays sticky all day and the smell seems to waft over me all day too. This goes on like lotion instead of gel, has color so you can see where you've applied. I left off one star because I don't really like the smell. It smells like pineapple and I don't want to smell like that. It does seem to fade away after a while.

                    Comments about Australian Gold Instant Sunless Lotion:

                    I am no stranger to self tanning. I've been sunless tanning for almost 20 years and have tried them all. I used the old Australian Gold self tan formula and I loved it until they changed the formula and the scent. When I saw this product I thought maybe it would be just as effective as the old version. Not even close. For starters, the "instant" color is not instant at all. The lotion has a greyish tint to it and when you apply it you can't see where it's going. I like my tanners with a color guide. The two pros of this lotion: It smells wonderful and it dries quickly. I applied this tanner to my arms only and when I woke up the next day, I was just as pale as I was prior to the application. I'm sorry, this is a fail for me. I will be returning.
