Most Helpful Positive Review Works better then any other face sunless tanners I've used!
I've tried quite a few different sunless tan face lotions. None of them seemed to really. I am in Love with this product though! Works well and the color is prefect with my olive skin tone. When I purchased it I received a free gift from Coola. It was coola's mineral sunscreen, natural BB cream. It is amazing and one of my new favorite products! I use the sunless tan serum at night and then the bb cream during the day with a little powder over top and it's perfect! I have oily, acne prone skin and neither of these Coola products have been a problem for me. Oh and the bb cream keeps my face from getting oily waaaaaaayyy longer then any other kind I've tried. I recommend trying both! Ultra is great about returns so it's worth giving them a whirl!
Most Helpful Critical Review REally wanted to love this but...
I've used various spray tans and decided to try this one based on reviews and a coupon I had. I liked the idea it was made from all natural ingredients. However, it has a pump spray, not aerosol, which is impossible to use upside down or in long sweeps of spray which you need for even coverage. No way could I reach the bottom back of my calves easily! The result were drips down my legs and feet! BTW, nail polish remover is good for getting spray tan stains/blotches off of your body. There was no discernable odor after application, hours later I could smell a little tell-tale tanner odor but it wasn't bad. Plus, the spray became sticky before it dried so don't plan on getting dressed and going anywhere right away. But the most disagreeable thing was the color! It was a very orange color on my skin! I have an olive complexion and was surprised at the color that developed. Now others had said they like the color. But not on me! I'll stick with St. Tropez for now.
Reviewed by 1467 customers Sheer tint with SPF
Lauren01 from MD
I don't ever write reviews. Although, I do always read them. This is just SPF with a sheer wash of color. I have very light skin and I purchased the golden option. I was concerned it would be too dark but it's perfect. Makes my skin glow and is perfect for everyday wear. I'm not a fan of heavy foundations. I just wish it came at a lower price point.
CyndiRoo from Virginia
I only gave this 4 stars due to the price. It's pretty expensive for what you get. It's a pretty thin liquid, very sheer coverage but good for a minimal make up look, leaves your face glowing right where you need it. I will say if you prefer medium to more coverage you will probably not like this product. There have been a few times I had to add some concealer under/over it. I saw a lot of reviews complaining that this product is a self tanner and washes off.. it's literally a skin tint. Nothing more. Do not buy this thinking it's going to gradually tan your face because it won't and you will be disappointed. The smell doesn't smell like self tanner because there isn't any in it. It just smells like make up. Overall I think it's a great product but that price.. kinda pricey for a skin tint.

Give me a perfect color every time!
Allison from Portsmouth, NH
I started to develop horrible fungal acne when using this product. The minute I stopped using it the acne cleared up. Started using again and the acne came back worse. I am super super pale and after 4 hours I hardly notice a difference. Product does not last after washing your face. Wish I returned it. Waste of money.
i like it but have some improvements
lexie from michigan
i've tried countless self tanners in my face. this one delivers the best build able color. however, for the price i wish the scent was better. it smells the same as cheap self tanners. I wish it had a better scent. also, as a serum i don't loveee the texture on my face. while applying, it just feels thin/liquidy and unsatisfying. however, i will continue to use it because overall it gives a nice face tan
debrika from tampa fl
This is the 3rd purchase of this item, works well, mixes well with my moisturizer, tan to a nice color (not orange)
I would buy this product again.
RobbieTheBonehead from Walpole, MA
This product is great. It leaves the face feeling soft. The smell isn't that strong and it fades out. It also blends in very well and quick and isn't greasy or sticky.
Cools from Tampa
I felt like it washed away with every face wash. Don't spend the extra money and use the ulta drops or mist.
Works great, but, .the Smell is awful!
DeeBee from Dallas
The product gives you a very natural tan. But, the smell is AWFUL.
Erin from Seattle, WA
The packaging is really nice but I honestly think that is what I paid mostly for. The product itself is just ok. It smells like self tanner which actually goes away rather than getting worse like some do. The color it gave me was standard, nothing spectacular. I broke out shortly after using it which almost never happens. Aside from it, I was using the same products I always use and washing my face twice a day like normal so pretty sure this was the culprit.
LaceyDi from Idaho
I took the advice from the description and began blending a few drops with my moisturizer. I noticed a gradual natural glowing tan the next day that I was quite impressed with. I have always been worried to try sunless face tanner, but wow I am so pleased with this product. It smells so good, it absorbs well into my skin, it has anti-aging elements. I was worried that I was going to look orange and streaky, but apparently sunless tanner technology has come a long way! I love this product!
It Works! I'm Glowing Like Honey
Coola Body Mist from Boca Raton, FL
I wish I could upload a photo because I put it on one leg so I could see the difference before I applied it to the rest of my body. The leg that I used it on has a nice honey-tan glow. I used it on my lower leg because it is always hard for me to tan that area. So normally my skin is light. I'm Irish-Italian and my skin reflects that. I'm fairly pale, but I have a hint of olive.
I bought both the Coola applicator mitt and the kabuki brush. I watched some online videos from bloggers and did what they said. I used the exfoliating side of the mitt first. Then I misted the spray and rubbed it in circularly and I used the kabuki brush on my ankles and knees.
I needed two layers of the oil to attain a deeper shade. It took about two hours to develop and it is still getting darker.
For me, it has been streak-free. It really looks nice.
Love Coola products! Best sunless tab serum I have used
Southernblondemomof3 from Morgantown
I love coola products! Good ingredients! I have used other popular brands of sunless face tanner but I think this one is the best! I usually mix with some moisturizer then apply on the face. My face doesn't break out using this
kk from WA
This was my first time ever using a self tanning product and I loved how easy it was to apply. I am pretty fair and it didn't look orange at all.
Buy it it's the best thing I've ever gotten!
Bella from Los Angeles CA
I stopped using foundation after this.
Ashley G from New Jersey
I have tried every face self tanner and this is by far the best. It smells amazing and produces a natural tan which is not orange at all. The serum also makes your skin feel smoothe. I use it every day as a gradual tan along with the other Coola products. Would definitely recommend.
Littlem0000 from Orange city
Orange color for sure and streaks hated it
My summer makeup setting spray
Hazel from PA
I love this stuff to spritz on my face. It goes too fast on my 5'10 body. I either do it alone after the sunless serum, or on top of my Mac waterweight foundation. Beautiful tan glow!
Doesn't turn me orange
Wendy from Washington State
My biggest concern about self tanners is turning orange or a color no where near my natural color. I tan pretty easy but I wear spf on my face regularly so my face is usually lighter than the rest of me. This is a gradual tanner that allows you time to adjust if you need to. It is a little slimmy but blends in very nice.
1st time buying this brand
Quicknine from Jackson, WY
Bought it for the sun protection for my face as I'm outside all day and sometimes forget to apply my face sunscreen. It feels amazing on my face and, when I'm wearing makeup, it really fills in the fine lines where makeup tends to settle!!
Mostly stress free
BF from CA
Quick, easy to apply. Don't forget to wipe off your feet when you wash your hands.
bmz from Boston
A lot of the negative reviews are for a different product!!! This has a great light smell, good texture, spreads evenly, no streaking. It is very very light so if you're looking for noticeable color this isn't for you.
I really do like this tanner
Dorit R from TX
I alternate between using just the product (2-3 pumps) for a faster tan and/or adding it to my daily moisturizer. The smell is not the best however it goes away very fast and leaves you with a natural tan (not orange) and streak free. I have used it now for a week and am satisfied. The best is to try it yourself!
Mila from Charlotte, NC
I've been using this product for the last few years and cannot stress just how amazing it is!! In the fall and winter I use it every now and then just to keep some color on my face, but in the spring and summer I use it every other day! I've always had a hard time tanning my face since I use exfoliating scrubs almost every night. I use two pumps of the Coola serum along with one pump of my moisturizer with my nightly routine and it gets the job done. I'm fairly pale so using it on it's own can give me too deep of a color, but mixing it with my moisturizer is perfect! I'd HIGHLY recommend!!!
Super easy to use
TNgirl from TN
Love this self tanning serum. I've tried so many others and liked a few, but this is my new go-to. It's very subtle and doesn't leave any streaks. I apply a few drops morning and/or night before any other treatments or makeup. Not greasy and absorbs easily and completely. Received a sample in a gift with purchase, then purchased full size product.
