How to Use
Rated 4.15 out of 5 stars
This stuff works! Like overnight. I've used it once and the results were very impressive (not exactly "gradual"). My boyfriend says it's a very "nautral tan". My only suggestion would be make sure you get it as close to your hairline as possible, otherwise you'll see a definite line between tan and non-tanned skin.
I'm so disappointed in this product!! I was hoping to LOVE it as my face does not tan whatsoever. Since I usually don't wear makeup, I was hoping this product would even me out and give me a nice natural color and glow to match the rest of my body without having to cake on makeup to achieve and even look.
I used these tan drops for about 4 days, every night mixing with my pond's night cream. The color/ tan never appeared, but it did turn my naturally light brown eyebrows orange. It looked really bad. It also made my face SO shiny. I've never struggled with oily skin, but this made my face look super oily and gross. The shininess and orange eyebrows finally completely went away after a week of discontinued use. This product also had a subtle "fake tan" smell, which was a turn off, but I could've overlooked the smell if this product would've actually worked for me.
Unfortunately, I will not use the tan drops again. I will stick with applying a tanning foam (for body use) on to my face a couple times a week and call it good.

I always have this product in my drawer. I have bought it multiple times now. I mix this with my face lotion at night and wake up with a very noticeable tan. Blends in nice with the neck and doesn't leave streaks or lines -with exception of making sure you get a little into the hairline. I can get by with using it about 1-2 times a week. It has a slight self-tanner smell after about 4 hours after application, but not overbearing. I have used it under my powder foundation a few times and I do not get oily (I have fairly oily acne prone skin).

I was skeptical at first but after ~3 uses it looked like I had used bronzer for the day (I only do brows & mascara). I backed off and will switch to every 2-3 days so it's not overdone. I use toner, hyaluronic acide and niaminicide under moisturizer

Add a couple drops to your daily face moisturizer and you will have a great glow by mid day. I use it everyday . After the Third day you can take a break . Your glow will last a few days before needing to re apply

Absolutely love these tanning drops. I get extremely pale in the winter and use these every other night mixed with my clinique moisturizer and they create the perfect tan. I've tried more expensive brands and love these the most.

I only use this every 3 nights. If used every night I could see how it could be overbearing. It's a subtle tan given, but it helps keep the tan on my face since that's the area where my tan first fades.

Used them everyday and never saw a difference lol save your money.
Annie from Milwaukee,wi
I used it on my face at first and it was OK. nothing dramatic or super noticeable, so I tried more on my body. A day or so later I now have this insane rash all over my body that is coming and going. I think it is contact dermatitis. Never had this with any other product. Not quite sure what to do. This SUCKS

This, unfortunately turned me orange. I will say that it does not transfer.
Sam from California
I bought this to use on my body not my face. Works well. Has a slight "fake tan" scent to it but nothing overwhelming or lingering. Took 3 days to notice the glow. It is subtle and looks natural. Will keep buying especially for the price!
Barb from Michigan
Overall I love this product. It gives me a nice bronze glow and has not made my sensitive skin break out. HOWEVER it is very easy to overdo this so I would not recommend using it every night. When I was using it every night it turned my face orange.
Lynds from Michigan
My first time using tanning drops as i have very sensitive combination skin. This hasnt made me breakout or dry i use it at night with my moisturizer and gives a nice natural looking glow!!! Definitely recommend

I've been using tanning drops for years and normally purchase tan luxe/I forget the other brands, but I've tried them all. I was skeptical at first bc it costs so much less and is the ulta brand. BUT this product has worked just as amazing as the others- I have no complaints! The only difference I've noticed is these drops don't last as long as the other brands- so I usually apply every other night vs a couple times a week. Would highly highly recommend this product- I swear by it since I'm in WA and there's not much sun where I'm at lol.
jade from atlanta
been using this for months and i love it. i have very pale skin and this product gives such a natural glow without it looking orange. makes my skin look so much better without makeup too. the smell isn't great but i only notice right when i'm applying it. i mix 3 drops with my cerave daily moisturizer and it's perfect. if you buy this be sure to pump enough moisturizer to blend down to your neck and hairline and don't forget to wash your hands with soap directly after!!
Jbeemarie from Sacramento
I can't give a decent review since I do use chemical exfoliant like the Dr Dennis pads. And when I use my exfoliating pads in the morning I can see the tanner running off.
Jen from New Jersey
I mix a drop of this with my moisturizer every night and I really love the results. It's not a deep self- tanner type of tan by any means. It is extremely subtle and gradual but it helps to even out my skin tone and blur imperfections. I have very sensitive skin and this does not break me out at all.
Lippy Lippy from Ohio
What I think is that this one works better after you got a little bit of tan, and need some extra.
It smells quite strong for face product so if you have sensitive skin, you might need to reconsider purchasing it.
Lolo from Jasper, Tn
I mix this with my moisturizer and apply to my face and neck.
As the saying goes, if it goes on your face , it goes on you neck.
It gives beautiful color.

I started using the product, loved the bronzed look it gave me, loved that I could mix with my Ordinary products, but didn't love the acne breakout that this product caused. I will not use again!!!! It you have sensitive, acne prone, or oily skin, not the product for you. Sorry peeps😢
xoxoefade from OK
I was skeptical at first - ok absolutely terrified that I would end up with orange splotches on my face- and the result was exactly the opposite! I've been using these drops about 4-5 nights a week for a month now and I have a nice, natural looking tan. Only use 1-2 drops and mix with moisturizer at night. Highly Recommend! For the price these can't be beat!

I saw some friends loving this and finally made it to Ulta to buy a bottle. It's simple to use and gives this sheet-white fave some actual glow.

I use faithful for two weeks..I seen nothing.i would of been a lil happy with something light.but nothing..big 0
for the one's saying they get color from this,they must be super light pale.
actually I should return it.but it went in the garbage instead.
kpison from Nashville tn
I love the gentle sun-kissed color...but... you do smell like a frito no matter what your moisturizer smells like. and my face is more oily since using it.
Katie from PA
So I want to be very clear and say this is not gradual. I would approach this with great caution. I mixed a few drops with moisturizer and I'll admit I didn't take a lot of care applying...because it's supposed to be gradual. I ended up with a white ring around my mouth. Yikes.
Marla from Maryland
I absolutely LOVE these drops! I use them for my body, but they also work nicely on the face. I am very fair and wanted to find something that could give me some color without having to go out in the sun and risk burning. These are perfect! They're so much easier than a mousse and way less messy. I use roughly a full dropper for my shins, two droppers for my thighs, and one dropper per arm mixed with body lotion. They give a nice warm tan, but don't make me orange. I've already repurchased 2 more bottles - for the price, you can't beat these!
JennyBeans from Cali
Purchased 3 bottles so far & very pleased with results. Both my daughters love these drops & they get a sun kissed appearance that is natural looking. They like that it makes their face match their body since they wear sunscreen everyday. & don't wear any base makeup. It hasn't caused breakouts & it hasn't turned anyone Orange. They have fair neutral & light olive skin tones. They haven't had an issue with longevity using these in conjunction with active exfoliants like retinol, BHA, AHA, or azelaic acid regularly. Would recommend & repurchase!!!
