Most Helpful Positive Review I never do this but
I bought this in medium/dark yesterday solely because of reviews so today after using it last night i felt i absolutely had to leave one of my own. I am so so caustious and skeptical about what i put on my face because I breakout so easily. So i added 4 drops to my cetafil daily moisturizer before going to bed last night and took a pic so i could compare to how i looked this morning. I didnt expect to notice any difference after the first try honestly but I did! Absolutely sold on this after just one use and want to get the body one as well. I have a natural tan glow and it reduced the redness or hid the redness anyway of my current breakout so I am so pleased!! Highly recommend to anyone thinking about trying . I know its pricey but when it comes to your face you want the best and this i think it is!
Most Helpful Critical Review Has Fragrance and Self Tan Smell
I bought both the light/medium and medium/dark. Unless you are losing your olfactory senses, these have fragrance in them that is apparent before the bottle is even open. After application that self tan smell is pretty strong as the tan develops and stays until you wash your face. It's more noticeable than other self tanners I have used on my face. The light/medium didn't work at all, only the medium/dark. I used 5 drops in my face cream that I mixed in my hand. The formula is a very thick, heavy oil that is impossible to use under makeup with oily skin and difficult to mix with an oil free cream. My makeup turned to sludge. I had to spray a ton of makeup setting spray to dry it out. Frankly it's a lot of extra work that is not worth it. This is so expensive and you go through it faster having to use so many drops. The reviews just are not accurately describing what I received which is frustrating.

I received this in my ipsy bag and have been searching for it ever since. It smells like self tanner but the even coverage is amazing. I'm fair skinned and it's easy to apply and looks so natural.
Been using this for a year
Jules from Houston, TX
This is a life saver. I mix this with my The Ordinary Moisturizer all over my face &
Décolleté. This is just such a better choice than sitting in the sun & causing aging. I'm not orange & my face is moisturized. That's all I can ask for lol there's a faint scent but nothing overpowering. I'm super sensitive to smells & this is great. Sometimes I even mix this with my body lotion & put it on my legs.
Most even looking face tan!
Adley from Chicago
Love these tanning drops! Previously I would put the tanning moose on my face and it would look uneven and darker in some spots and would break me out. But I don't have a problem with this! I love that I can mix it with my moisturizer making sure that it gets all over my face. And I am able to easily reapply when needed. Will be buying again!
Broke me out
Lins from USA
Gave me a slight glow, but caused a major forehead breakout and scattered facial breakout a couple days later. Not worth it. Just tan your body and use a bronzer or darker foundation for your face.

Work better than I thought. Will definitely make
KaseyG from KY
I got a sample of this in the light/medium formula & liked it a lot so I came to order the full size. I read some of the reviews first, took the advice of many & ordered the medium/dark instead. I know the price may seem steep but this is totally worth it! I'm a light-medium skin tone that tans very easily & very golden in the summer. I use 2-4 drops of this mixed in with my daily moisturizer about every other day & the results are truly gorgeous. It conceals any blemishes and/or unevenness I have & gives a beautiful golden (not orangey) glow. This is the very first self tanner I've used (and I've tried a ton) that easily passes for natural sun. It also doesn't irritate my sensitive skin & hasn't made me break out which is a miracle. If you're thinking about trying this, take the leap because it's absolutely fabulous!

I really wanted to like this based on the reviews I read but it turned my hairline (blonde hair) and the top edge of my eyebrows (black eyebrows) orange, and the smell is unpleasant.
I never write reviews for anything, but this deserves it
Claudia from Boston, Massachusetts
Absolutely LOVE this product. I have a medium/light skin tone that tans easily in the summer, and followed the recommendation of some of the other reviews saying to purchase the medium/dark color and just use less of it, which has worked out perfectly! At first I was a little hesitant about the price, but it is well justified with how long it has lasted me - I bought my bottle at the end of January, use two drops in my moisturizer every other day, and still have half the bottle left. I've received tons of compliments on my skin and I don't even use foundation anymore because I find that this hides any blemishes/unevenness that I have. 12/10 product.
Yes!!! Love it everything that I need

I use this product every day at morning it is amazing

PrissyKrissy from New York
get it! I get a nice tan on my face, which never tans. I always get a nice tan from Tanluxe products.
👏🏼 No more pale face!
Lindsey from NC
I got a sample of this in the Light Medium color and after one use I'm hooked! I spray tan every week but I don't tan my face because it sits in my pores and makes my makeup look weird. Not this stuff! I added 4 drops to my moisturizer and let it sit for about 12 hours so it could fully process. Now my face is the most beautiful natural tan color. No streaks and does not look orange at all. Be sure when you are applying you press into your hairline so you don't have a weird line. Also wash your hands thoroughly in between your fingers. I missed a spot and it got a little orange. 10/10 would highly recommend!
Why would you not want to GLOW??
Janey from Highland, Michigan
after you shower and use toner, add 2-4 drops of sunshine into your hands and apply to your face and neck. You will see results instantly!
you need to buy!!

Love these!! Noticed a difference after one use!

Great color and feels wonderful on skin
Jen from Illinois
I've been using this for a few weeks now and I'm impressed, this stuff is amazing. It gives the most natural pretty, lasting color. I've gone through many and this one is the best I've tried so far. I just wish it weren't so expensive, but I will be sticking to this one for now.
Wow! What an awesome product!
M. B. A. from Ohio
I got a free sample and have never used self tanner so I wasn't sure if I would like this or not. I have been mixing 3-4 drops in my morning Vitamin C serum for the last week and am amazed by the results! A friend actually asked me if I had been tanning and complemented my complexion. I have no issues with streaking or dark spots. My face and neck just look naturally tan. I like how you can control the darkness bu adding/reducing drops in your regular moisturizers.

A great buy, the bottle will last a long time
Subtle, Natural, Great
Holly from USA
Been a fan since first trying a couple years ago! Use a few drops once or twice a week (redhead/ kinda fair), so one bottle usually lasts for months.
Anne with an E from MO
I really like this tan product for the face. It does not clog the pores like some other tanning products do. I did have to use more drops. I purchased the medium to dark. I read where the light really does not show up that much. I drop in my daily moisturizer which is simple Oil of Olay with sunscreen.
Tried the sample..few days later purchased the large bottle!
TKCinSTL from St. Louis, Missouri
I ordered a bunch of things on Ulta and received the 20 piece kit with samples. The Tan Luxe drops were in the sample and it is the first thing I tried. I used with my Nivea skin firming lotion and worked within an hour and I was hooked. The sample given was the light/medium. I ordered the medium/dark for the summer.
I am very very skeptical of self tanners and have stayed away because I tan easily when going outside. However, because of covid we didn't do much but stay at home, so I am the palest that I have been in years! This will help me as I slowly build up my natural tan again because I am vaxxed and ready to enjoy the summer sun!
Doesn't work all that well
Pale Gal from MI from Grand Blanc, MI
I got this as a sample and was excited to try it- I am a first timer tanning lotion & this is not it. I am also very pale as I am from MI just getting out of winter. I recommend Coola Sunless Tan Anti-Aging Daily Moisturizer. What I did was apply tan-luxe to my face 2x and coola to the rest of my body. My face stayed pale and my body had the perfect sun kissed glow. Price is the same for both products so might as well get one that works.
It's pretty great!
Tess from Washington
I was reading negative reviews and felt compelled to touch on those. I gave four stars only because of the typical self tanner smell.
I really think it's great if you're wanting a subtle glow. This is NOT a deep tan look
It does have a slight self tan smell, and everyone knows that if you don't wipe/wash your hands after using it, it turns them orange. So wash your hands after!! Duh.
I'm fair skinned and this give me just enough GLOW to not look dead. You have to wait about four+ hours to notice a difference. I put it on every other day or so right before bed and usually use 2-4 drops into my moisturizer.
Meh. It's alright
Rebecca from Illinois
I really wanted to like this product. It def has an orange hue to it. I used it on my legs and mixed it with baby oil gel. I used a dropper and a half. The smell doesn't bother me. I feel like I got just as good of coverage with Neutrogena sunless tanner. For the price I expected more. Probably won't buy again
Patch test first
Emma from State college, Pennsylvania
I got these tanning drops because I heard great things and I heard the bottle lasts a long time so I figured it was worth the investment. I'm super pale rn but decided to get the medium/dark because that's typically what I get in different brands just because I'm always able to use less product but when I get fair/medium sometimes you hit a max level of darkness your able to achieve that isn't even noticeable. I mixed one single drop in with my moisturizer and was a second away from smearing it all over my face when I decided "eh I'll just patch test it on my hand for tonight." So glad I did because the results were insane and I would have had to go into hiding. Definitely going to exchange my drops for the fair shade. It's a great product just patch test first because it is very intense.
Turned me Orange with only 1-2 drops
Diane W from Wake Forest NC
I tried this product fir a week, only using 1-2 drops every 3-4 days. I was orange!!
