      Comments about ULTA Instant Bronze Sunless Tanning:

      This tanner is actually really good! It doesn't smell awful and the color isn't super fake from what I have seen. The problem is that I haven't gotten to use it anywhere but my legs and I haven't gotten to do more than one application. The pump gives out after a VERY short amount time. I bought a bottle and the pump stopped working by the time I finished my legs so I returned it and got another one that didn't even finish my legs. So I was incredibly disappointed and have not bought a third yet.,. I will eventually because the tanner itself seems to be a good product for my fair skin but the pump sucks!

          Definitely an awesome self tanner especially for the price. I love this product and it worked great on my skin tone. it wasn't blotchy or anything, it created a smooth and beautiful tan..

          IT WILL CLOG: many other reviews said this as well, and people said they threw away their bottles because it became unusable (SILLY!!!)
          if you run the pump under warm water and pump water through it to clean it out a few times it will go back to normal! yes its annoying to have to do that but I've used the tanner 2 times on me and another person and only had to unclog once.

          don't let that keep you from buying it!!! great product!!!

            I bought this product this summer as a less expensive alternative to Fake Bake. At first, it worked very well; easy to apply, no overwhelming odor, and it gave me just a tint of color, which is what I wanted. I recently purchased two new bottles during a sale and noticed that about halfway through the first one, it would clog in the straw. The result was very dark brown, almost coffee ground like mousse. It did not blend well on my skin at all. I tried shaking the bottle and pumping the product into the sink to clear the straw. Nothing worked. I thought maybe it was that particular bottle so I threw it away and opened the other one. Same thing; worked great for the first handful of applications then clogged. I am beyond disappointed in this as now I have wasted two bottles. I will not be using this anymore.

            The key to a great glow is prepping. Make sure you exfoliate first, then use a water based lotion (it will be the first listed ingredient).

            With this product you can literally apply and dry within a 30 minute period. Give it a few hours to appear but by the next day I always have a beautiful glow. The product smells great too!

            I tend to buy this in bulk (buy 2, get 2 free sort of thing) to make sure I always have some. The only downside to this product is the foaming pump can become clogged with the product building up over time.

            A bottle of this typically lasts anywhere from 2-3 months (I apply 1-2 times a week). Well worth the money when you compare to other products ranging about $45 for the same amount of fl. oz.

              OK, I thought with the Mousse feature, this would be easier to apply and offer better coverage than a cream or spray. Well, I was disappointed. I followed the instructions to use a good exfoliant, apply moisturizer to dry areas (elbows, etc.) and rub in thoroughly. Sorry, Ulta, this one is a hot mess. Not only did it streak, the color seemed to built up on some areas and be sparse on others. Not for me, for sure - this will be returned.

                      If it were an option I would rate this product 1.5/5, and there is nothing I can think of to persuade myself to rate it any higher. I am a very pale girl and I've been testing instant bronzing/tanning lotions and the like all summer. By far one of the worst is listed above. My routine: I will prep my skin, use a mitt (like with all other self tanning products), let it air dry for an hour with no clothes on, and sleep in it overnight (in sheets I'm not fond of) and you would think that is the perfect formula for a lasting tan, right? Very wrong. Even after an hour, it is STILL sticky (I live in dry weather), and leaving it on overnight,it looks like everything washes down the drain the next morning. I'll have a bit of a glow, but nothing noticeable. This is after four tries. I advise anyone with common sense to buy something else. Price is not everything.

                            Likes how fast it dries so can get dressed quickly after showering, great natural looking tan, leaves a gradual deepening color each time is showered off. Only bad thing about it, if you sweat outside in heat after product has dried and your clothes are on, color transfers to your clothing. That's why gave 4 stars instead of 5.

                                A:

                                It is safe for use on the face; however, care must be taken to avoid the eye area. For best results, gently exfoliate and apply a moisturizer first, then apply the product on high-tan areas (top of nose and cheek bones with a bit on chin and forehead) and gently blend out to the hair line and down to the décolleté with a mitt (we suggest ULTA Bronze Glow Sunless Tan Applicator Mitt For Face, Item #: 2267340) for even, streak-free application.

                                The product can also be mixed with facial moisturizer to reduce the depth of color. Use very little product and gently build the tan over time. The deep, rich color of the formula may be too dark for the facial area if applied too heavily. The trick is in applying the right amount to the correct areas and blending out to create the look of a natural tan.

                                Please note that in order for full color to develop, it is best to wait at least 4 hours before you shower. There is no risk for the color to over-develop; however, we recommend that you allow 1-2 minutes before getting dressed and/or going to bed to prevent color transfer onto clothing and/or sheets.
