Build-A-Tan is a lightly colored sunless tanner that gets a bit darker with every application. Build your tan according to the darkness you desire. Dries in five minutes. Lightly scented.
To help optimize results, use after exfoliating skin with Neutrogena Pre-Sunless Scrub. Apply lotion evenly over freshly cleansed, exfoliated skin, as you would apply a daily moisturizer. Smooth on evenly, and apply sparingly to elbows, knuckles, knees and ankles. Blend thoroughly. Wash hands with soap and water immediately after use. Wait one hour before bathing or swimming. Color will develop in approximately two to four hours and will last for several days. Reapply to deepen or maintain color. For best results, wait at least 8 hours between each application.

Precautions: Avoid contact with eyes. This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.

      I have used this for years now. on legs only and get compliments all the time. I mix with my moisturizers after a shower and have a fan blowing on my legs while putting on makeup and drying hair. I do not wear white underwear on shorts that day and wash hands and arms thoroughly
      afterwards because it will stain!!! I also apply small amount around ankles and feet and rub into skin well NOT FOR PALE, PALE SKIN

        Not for me

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

        So I used this as direct and every time I use it I literally get EXTREME streaks, splotches, everything! The other day I spent an hour blending everything and it stillll came out terribly! Also I feel like it never completely dries which could be why this happens, maybe it smears? But it doesn't work for me.

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

        I use this product a few days a week and very happy with results. No issues with streaking or bad coloring. Towards weekend I compliment it with the use of Tan Towel. The 2 work great together. I'm a blue eyed blonde that avoids sunbathing because of a melanoma scare.

          I've tried a few other self tanners and some of them have an awful smell and leave me feeling itchy. I love this stuff. It slowly builds color. I am very pasty, so it takes the edge off of my white legs with no smell and itch.

            I use this product when I get out of the shower. I like it for my legs because it gives me a slight tan, and it is a good moisturizer. After several applications it does produce a good tan.

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

                  Color makes it impossible to tell if you've covered your body completely. While I thought I did a good job rubbing it in, the next morning there were streaks and patches of tan color on various body parts.

                  Make sure you get a good sugar scrub to use beforehand. I love using this on my legs. Its takes overnight to take effect. Not my favorite but still works
