Precautions: For external use only. This product does not contain sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. 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. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Avoid contact with eyes and delicate facial skin.

    Comments about Australian Gold Instant Sunless Lotion:

    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.

          I find that you need to apply this everyday until you get the color that you want. It doesn't streak and it smells great.

            Comments about Australian Gold Instant Sunless Lotion:

            I have been using self-tanners for year, so I know how to use them effectively. I was excited to see this brand had made a self-tanner and the price was reasonable. After applying, even the next day, my skin was no more tanner than before I used it. This was disappointing.

                It dries quickly and provides a nice dose of realistic color to pale skin to hide those bluish tones and red bumps you sometimes see where hair follicles are. I didn't get any "instant" color, but within a few hours had a nice glow.
