    I would not purchase this again. It was uneven in color and did not last. (Which I was happy about since the color was so uneven.) Stay away from this one.

        It does not streak like some self tanners. Lasts longer. Gradual fade. Can't tell it's not a real tan.

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

          This is my first self tanner purchase. I've always been a little skeptical of the stuff, but this is great! It's easy to apply. However, it will end up a little streaky if you do not blend it properly. That's the most important step with this product. Blend, blend, blend. Other reviewers bring up the product's scent, but I do not mind it. You have to wait for the color to develop but looks noticeable even after one use. Two uses give a great tan.

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

          I love love love this product! I am usually reluctant to try any self-tanning products, but this one proved me wrong. The fact that it is a cream versus a spray allows you to control how tan you get and allows you to prevent the blotchy and orangey look that other tanners give you. If you apply evenly on your body and rub in until it is completely soaked into your skin, it WILL work! VERY happy camper!!!

            Love this stuff!

            By Gwen21

            from Los Angeles, CA

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

            I was looking for a slight tan that was buildable and natural looking and I found it! The color of this tanner is more of a yellow base and it looks exactly like my natural tan (I have fair skin). After one application the color is slightly noticeable and after two you can definitely see a difference. You do have to make sure you rub it in evenly or it will streak but a scrub with a damp towel gets rid of the streaking. If you stop reapplying this, the color will fade after about three showers which isn't bad, and it doesn't come off patchy. The smell isn't bad either.

              This stuff really works. i think it works best right out of the shower while mixing it with my own non-tanning lotion. this gives a really easy smooth color.

                    It looks natural, dried in about 8 or so minutes (it helps to dry quicker if you stand in front of a fan of course), and it isn't a super intense color. I like this product because if you blend it correctly it won't streak; I am positive that they people who said it was "streaky" just didn't blend it enough. You have to make sure you can't feel any lotion there anymore and that it's spread out. You can't use this product if you're in a hurry to get dressed and get out the door. You use this product if you make time to get ready in the morning. It does have an odd scent that will stick with you, though. I would cover that up with perfume.

                      I am a male and decided to give this a try. Been using tan towels, but wasn't horribly happy. I am very fair skin. The tan color itself isn't too bad on me. Looks fairly natural. The problem is some areas I know I went over, never developed.

                      The thing that annoys me is it doesn't ever seem to dry. If you put it on before getting dressed, your sking has a greasy, sticky feel. Yuck. Also, for guys the scent is a little too strong. Smells like baby powder or something. Oh well...off to try something else.
