Awesome!

Comments about TAN-LUXE The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops:

This stuff is great! I am an avid self tanner. I LOVE the "Loving Tan" but it's a lot of work. With this, I just add 5-6 drops for my legs and 2-4 for my arms. I have mixed it with a bunch. Of different lotions and it's worked wonderfully! I am extremely fair with blonde hair and blue eyes. I got the medium dark and I have had no issues at all. It is not orange or streaky. It will gather on the knees and elbows so I try to do those last when most of the product is gone off my hands. I don't use a mitt, but I do wash my hands afterwards and I've had no issues. I highly recommend this product.

Wow just wow!!

Comments about TAN-LUXE The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops:

Years ago I use to use Clarins self tanning milk and it would turn everything yellow. I tried the tanning salons but I hated having to go there. And with all the talk about the UV rays I had enough! I tried Lancome, St. Tropez, and Vita Liberata. They all gave me a great tan but the sheets for awful!
I used the dark tanning ST Tropez. mousse 2 times. Then I used Tan Luxe body illuminating self tanning drops with my Coco Shea body lotion which had coconut oil in it. I took a small mixing bowl and mixed I don't know how many drops in with the lotion. I was sitting in my recliner with no towel! I got into bed with no stains on the sheets! I sat in my car with no towel!! This stuff is the bomb!! I am taking everything else back that I use for in between tanning and buying this. I had been using Jergens Glow, but it never made my tan stay dark. I have not used this on my regular colored ski. I only used this after I have tanned with a tanning mousse. I did not have any streaks and even though they say do not use coconut oil after tanning, I had no problem and my lotion had it and it was very easy to apply.

Comments about TAN-LUXE The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops:

I live by reviews, but never spend the time to write them. I always try new self tanners come spring time. Jergens didn't give me the results I wanted and St. Tropez was too much work to apply. This stuff is awesome, no exfoliating or waiting for it to dry or using a mit. I simply shave my legs, mix this with my moisturizer and instantly go to bed. No stained sheets and I wake up tan. ONLY negative is that it doesn't smell at first but after a few hours you smell like self tanner. I can live with the smell for how easy and well this works.

    Comments about TAN-LUXE The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops:

    This is by far the best self tanner on the market...and i really feel like i've tried them all. You need to make sure that you use a tanning mitt to blend. Just like with any self tanner, it's always gonna blend better if you use one of those guys. If no, you run the risk of getting a streaky or spotty blend. Because there is no guide color, you have to go slow and be detail oriented if you want it to be even but it's WORTH the extra time. This guy looks more like a real tan than any other product I've tried. I got the light/medium because i'm not trying to look like TAN MOM (google it)..just trying to not look deceased. There IS a smell. I've seen some reviews saying that there was "no smell" and even some saying that it had an "awesome scent." Neither of these things are true. It DOES have that not-so-pleasant traditional self tanner smell...but way way WAY less intense than most brands. You only begin to smell it once the product has been on for a little bit and starts to develop. And again, it's faint, so it's tolerable. All in all it's the best out there. Pricey, but lasts a long time..and you can customize the intensity of your tan by choosing more or less drops in your body lotion. It dries super super fast, you can dress right away and not worry about it staining your clothing or sheets. Worth the $$ for sure

    I bought this product because it seemed easy and fool proof. It worked well on my face but my body was another story. It was streaky in many places! I really wanted this product to work.

      Comments about TAN-LUXE The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops:

      I never write reviews on products (even though I live by them); however, I couldn't keep quiet about this product. After using Jergen's and not getting the tan I wanted, I decided to research other options and ended up splurging on The Body by Tan-Luxe. I was pale, but because I tan easily and have olive undertones, I went with the Medium-Dark. After exfoliating in the shower I used my regular body lotion and 2 drops of The Body on a tanning mitt for each part of my body. I saw color within hours and I won't lie, I definitely didn't do my knuckles correctly, but the next time around I had a damp washcloth handy and just lightly went over them to make sure they weren't darker than the rest of my hand. I also realized that 2 drops didn't get me as dark as I wanted, but a couple days later I added more drops and ended up with the color I wanted and it lasts for about a week. The smell is great, but do note that after a couple hours you may smell a bit like you just went into a tanning bed, not like the usual self tanner smell though, which is great! By far the most natural looking tan I've seen that isn't from a tanning bed (which I once used frequently). Overall, this is amazing and the answer to every pale girl's dream who doesn't want to risk the tanning bed and who doesn't mind splurging for themselves once in a while.

        Comments about TAN-LUXE The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops:

        I don't understand the negative reviews of this product. I've tried ALL the self tanners, and this one is by far the best - and basically foolproof. I bought the med-dark and apply two days in a row to get a really natural dark tan that lasts for days! After about four hours there is a hint of that DHA smell, but it's not strong and totally not a negative. I appreciate that it doesn't stain my clothes or white sheets - will buy again and again! This product is light years ahead of a certain high-end mousse competitor that claims to last for weeks. Buy it!

          Comments about TAN-LUXE The Body Illuminating Self-Tan Drops:

          I'm a long-time user of self tanners. This is the best product I've ever used! You mix it with your own moisturizer and I was able to put this on my body and face and actually go to work with it on! This is so great! No more annoying having to take another shower at night, then put self tanner on. I put the tanner on my hands at night since not being able to wash my hands during the day is gross :-)
          This has no "guide" color in it so nothing transfers onto clothing or gets into your pores.
          There was a hint of that self tanner smell but it was not overpowering or anything.
          I used 3 drops per body part and was really surprised how dark I got (bought the dark version). The color matched my skin tone better than anything else I've tried. Even color lasted 5 days.
          Feels great on, too! Very moisturizing.

            I was so excited to try this brand after reading rave reviews. Unfortunately, I'm going to Ulta soon to return this tanning oil. I took time to apply the product and it was still streaky and orange. Only good part was no smell after applying. Sticking to St Tropez for my tanning needs in the future.
