Most Helpful Positive Review definitely the best self tanner
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
Most Helpful Critical Review Wouldn't probably purchase again
I wanted to like this product, but I just don't think it works as well as it should based on how much it cost. I put it on after taking a bath and before going to bed and it smells great going on, but in the morning once it's set up, it smells the same as every other awful tanning agent. I decided to get the darker color, and I wish I would have bought the lighter color because it doesn't look tan, it looks fake and like my skin is dirty. I used 4 drops, just for reference. I'm going to play around with it and try less drops and daily application to see if that will help but so far, I'm not impressed. The only thing I really like about it is that you can add it to your own lotion and apply.
Reviewed by 90 customers Clogs pores
Face tanner from Colorado
Tried it out a couple nights to build the tan up. Clogged my pores a lot even little ones. Would give off an orange tint (I have olive skin complexion) and easy build up in hair line area. I did it with both serum and moisturizer to see how each worked with it (no difference). Biggest thing for me was how it clogs the pores and I have small pores and the orange tint
Best self tanner I have Used!!
Katie from New Jersey
This is hands down the best self tanner I have used. The pros list goes on and on, it fades nicely, has buildable darkness, and I love that I can mix it with my moisturizer for application. It is not orange at all and lasts a pretty decent amount of time. Applying it the way I do, I have never had a problem with splotchyness or streaks. The only con I have found after months of using this product is the body tanner breaks my face out BUT they do have a face tanner. I have not bought it because the body tanner is quite pricey however it does last a long time. Love it and highly recommend!!!!
Leaves orange tint
Roj from San Diego
not the most natural looking tan if you're trying to get a deeper tan with multiple uses you'll just end up looking like an oompa loompa
Best Self Tanner!
Liz from Boston
This is my favorite self tanner!! I love that you don't have to shower it off after a certain period of time, once you apply it, it's all set. I also like that even though it's a lotion it applies pretty dark compared to other self tan/gradual tan lotions! I typically mix with my normal body lotion and I've never experienced streaking or orange appearance. When I apply, I mix the oil with my lotion first and then apply which helps with even application. It does have the classic self tan smell but I find after a day it fades, usually I just cover with perfume or a scented body lotion.
Kelly P from Columbus, OH
I use this in the summer time for my face, since I typically get less sun there from wearing a hat and wanting to prevent wrinkles. In the winter, I use it for face, arms, and legs. So easy to use, just mix with moisturizer or lotion and gives the best glow.
Cleaning lady from Ormond Beach Fla
I use it after I come out of the pool every day. I want that dark tan.
Not the Best for Fair Skin
Steph from Corona, CA
I really wanted to like this, but unfortunately, the color just wasn't suitable for my fair skin with pink undertones. This definitely has a strong orange/red undertone, and I've found that products with a green undertone are much more flattering. This looked flat out bright orange on me with only using two drops per body part like instructed. On the plus side, the product had a pleasant scent and didn't smell like that typical self-tanner scent. It was also VERY long-lasting. It took me almost a week of exfoliating every day to get the last of the product off. If you aren't super fair or have a warmer complexion, this might be a good fit for you.
Perfect even tan every time 😍
Drea from Portland Oregon
I use this with the nivea essentially enriched lotion and there is basically no tanning product smell, also this item goes on so easy and next day the tan is so even and smooth. It only sucks that it lasts like 3 days only but if you moisturize after every shower then it isn't that big of a deal. Overall i love this stuff.
Best self tanner on the market!
Kelly from Fairfield, CT
I have been using self tanners for 25 years. They have obviously come along way.
My favorites have been are Clinique, Clarins and Tarte. Until I was introduced to Tan-Luxe products. I haven't found any of their products that I haven't loved. But this one is my fave.
The key for me is the oil, mixed w a little bit of my fave Hemp lotion applied with a mitt. It creates the most even and brown tan of my life. I get endless compliments on my tan and I haven't been laying out since last year.
For people out there who have poor reviews, they either aren't using it correctly or simply don't have skin that tans w self tanners.
l recommend this product all day long!
I will be buying again
Keri from Arlington wa
Love 💕 this serum smells yummy and gives a natural sunkissed tan!
Worth the money!
CNTX83 from Houston, Texas
Love this tan oil. You can control the level of color and it is very natural looking. No streaking. Easy to apply.
Alicia from Arizona
Best tanning stuff.
Great results; Be careful during Application
Si from Saint Louis, MO
I use this to balance the color of my legs with the rest of my body. If you apply too much, the color can be very harsh, so I always use my applicator glove and blend it with an unscented moisturizer - sometimes the combination of the drops with another scented lotion is pretty bad. So if you make sure to apply it carefully, you won't stain your hands and it'll turn out great!
i have bought this several times
Jacki from Nevada
I have used this product for a few years. I use it mainly for my legs. I get enough color on the rest of my body that shows. It goes on easily and does not leave streaks in my experience. I use the med/dark and it gives my skin a nice even color. I will continue to buy this
I wouldn't buy this again
Natalie from Ohio
It's good coverage, but horrible if you have any age spots. It enhances them and makes them really dark and orangey.
Not for all skin types!
NeedsATan from Ohio
I read reviews and thought I'd try this since the weather had been cold, rainy, and tanning salons hadn't opened back up. I have very dry skin and age spots. I gave this a 2 because it didn't orange or discolor where I was dry, but my age spots turned ten times darker. Awful! Waste of a lot of money!
Just call me trump. from stl
Terrible. I've been trying out a lot of self tanners and this is by far the worst product. It's blotchy, doesn't blend well, and is the most uneven self tanner. Waste of money. If I could give zero stars I would. I wouldn't recommend this product to my worst enemy.
love the product very disappointed with Ulta
Nicole from PA.
I ordered this product..first my package arrived empty..they sent out a new one that took 2 weeks to get here . when it arrived it was open and some of the product had spilled. I didn't bother trying to call again and wait for help for over an hour but I won't be ordering from Ulta again. This wasn't cheap and the whole ordeal was ridiculous.
Love it the best and I be tried a few!
Porridge Gal from Brentwood CA
I use at night, straight on the skin and then only blend with night cream down the neck and on to my chest
I don't expose my face to the sun as always wear complete block so look odd when no make up on with the rest of my body naturally tanning when out and about- add this and it looks natural all over
Sensitive skin and I Love this!
Chrissy from NY
I mix this with my face moisturizer and my body moisturizer before bed and wake up glowing! Obsessed.
WORST PRODUCT EVER
Cancel from New York
Worst product I ever used I've tried it several times and it RUINS my skin every time I am FURIOUS. Does not even deserve one star
Would not waste my money again
JesHoov from Cranberry Twp.
I self tan all the time and was super excited about this product. The first time I tried it I mixed the drops with my lotion and the next day I did not notice a difference at ALL! I tried applying a drop without combining it with lotion on my leg to see what it would do and I did notice a slight difference in color where I put it therefore this is probably more for a gradual tan not an over night self tanner like it is advertised. You would have to apply it several times to see a difference and if I wanted to do that I would just use jergans for $10. I typically use at St. Tropez mousse which works great but I wanted to try this to have the advantage of being able to moisturize while getting a tan, unfortunately it does not work. It has a great smell and I do like the way it feels but I bought it for self tanning reasons. This is an expensive product which would be fine if it worked but it does not so I would not waste your money!
Sun kissed beauty!
Brianna from New Jersey (south jersey)
I love this self tanner. I mix 3 drops with my face oil or moisturizer before bed, waking up with a beautiful glow! I use the light to medium color and it's just enough of a sun kissed look for my light Italian skin tone. I always get compliments on my tan! I still prefer Bali body for the rest of my body; however.
I wanted to love this so much!!
Syd the Kid from Oklahoma
So! Just a note, I'm pretty fair complected. Blonde hair and blue eyes - I typically am a St Tropez user.
I got this and after reading SO many reviews I splurged on these. I read that they're much darker than what most people are used to, that being said I decided to go easy on my first application I did one drop on each body part mixed with lotion and went to sleep, work up to being the exact same color as before. Went up to 4 drops per body part..still no tan. Yesterday I applied 1 drop to my thigh, without ANY lotion, fast forward to today NOTHING. I don't know if maybe I got a bottle that just doesn't work..But i've now gone through half a bottle just trying to get some color..I would love to know if I just got a bottle that was defective somehow. I hate that it didn't work for me as it smells AMAZING and dries SO fast, isn't sticky at all.
Works awesome! Smells amazing!
Amazeballz from Omaha Nebraska
I bought this to help my pastey self merge into summer time. This product works so amazing! I am super fair skinned and got the light to medium. I opened the bottle and it smelled so good. Not like self tanner AT ALL! I got a perfect sun kissed look using the max of 6 drops with my lotion per body part. I would most definitely order this again and it is so much safer than my usual tanning bed routine.
