Comments about NKD SKN Natural Gradual Tan Lotion with Carmel Tint:

This is my go-to gradual tanning lotion but I mix it a daily, moisturizing lotion that has no color. I took one star away because when used alone, it dries too quickly during application that later that day/early next, you can see locations you missed. So on day, I mixed it with my daily, moisturizing lotion and magic! Even bronze! Add an even amount of both lotions in my palm, mix it up between my hands and apply. What I love about this tanning lotion is that I can apply two to three days before an event and have such a natural looking bronze glow. I see results within hours! With that said, wash your hands immediately after application or you will have tan palms and finger webs that same day. Overall, this tanning lotion just needs an extra bump of moisture from a daily lotion to keep from drying before you body is fully covered. Fades evenly. This is my new favorite tanning lotion that I and extra container of at all times!!

    Comments about NKD SKN Natural Gradual Tan Lotion with Carmel Tint:

    I already had a tan so the color I got from this product from after 2 uses is actually really nice. This is definately not a gradual tanner though. It works very quickly and the color deepens fast. I washed my hands right after applying and my palms are pretty discolored right now. I do like the color I got from it though but I feel like someone with a light skin tone would not like this product at all. I didnt notice any streakyness , but then again it may be harder for me to tell since I already had some color.

        Comments about NKD SKN Natural Gradual Tan Lotion with Carmel Tint:

        Just warning that is a long review... my grandpa died from skin cancer and it really changed my perspective on things. So I stopped using tanning beds and could NOT find an inexpensive and unharmful way to tan that didn't turn me orange or streaky. I bought this because of a friend's recommendation. I went into using this product feeling very confident because I saw how natural and dark of a tan my friend got from this (I actually thought she got the tan from the beach and was shocked when she said it's fake). I also bought the Ulta brand mit for application because a mit is recommended, and it went on smoothly and easily and dried very fast. I had absolutely no transfer onto clothes or furniture (I have a cream colored couch so this was a plus!) and it soaks into your skin super fast. I don't know why other reviews mention an orange color? I have pale skin with red undertones and this product brought my skin to an olive-y bronze complexion, truly a beautiful tan. I have used this product after exfoliating and also after not exfoliating, and always had an even application. I did get a little blotch on my one foot but I expected it since I accidentally used it a little too heavily there. As long as you take your time, you will be 100% impressed with the results! Worth every penny and love that I can get a gorgeous tan without exposing my skin to harmful rays! The color is also buildable. I woke up the day after my first application very tan, and applied more the next day. I can now go every couple of days without using and my tan maintains and does not fade streaky or weird. I could not rave about this product more!

          Goes on smoothly. Has Awesome color. Lasts days. No bad smell. Organic - which is why I purchased in first place having a 8 month old and all. It dries fast! Incase I need to pick her up or something and DOES NOT TRANSFER! Does not make your elbow, hands, knees and ankles look nasty like most brands usually do regardless if I exfoliate or not. This product is literally the best. Thanks Nkd Skin, now just come out with a face serum with sunscreen in it for daily use‍♀️☺️

            I have used all kinds and this by far is safe, doesn't transfer and is my favorite thus far! I was surprised because it is half the price of the top brand names. Heard of this through a Blog, have it a try since it's organic (since breastfeeding my baby still) Thanks NKD SKN!

                This product doesn't smell, but you need to be careful with application, especially if you have a lighter olive skin. I'm sure if you skin is more olive that any uneven application may not be as noticeable. Also, warning- not a very gradual tan for lighter skin. I put on 2 applications and was a lot darker. Not a bad thing, but I'd prefer people not to immediately react and ask if its real.

                Bought this upon a friend recommendation. It claims odor removed but it smells like all other gradual tan lotion. Color is very orange. Do not like it. Probably return.

                  I usually buy a more expensive brand of self tanner. Saw this at Ulta & decided to give it a try. Goes on easy w no streaking, no heavy smell & no staining of my hands! Tans quickly over a few hours & dries fast! Tan lasted about 3-4 days. Tan was natural looking. Will definitely purchase again. I save money buying this tanner!
