I have fair, sensitive skin and anything I put on my skin shows up no matter what. I got this with Ulta's buy one get one 50% off (and some saved up points) and I only ended up spending $15 for 2 bottles. I can't justify spending $30 for a bottle of self tanner that I'm not even sure is going to look stupid when I wake up the next morning. This stuff looks really great and not fake at all. There are just a few pointers to keep it from looking like a fake bake: 1. After you get out of the shower and have shaved and exfoliated, put some moisturizer on your feet, knees, and elbows. It keeps the tanner from settling in the rough spots. 2. Work fast!!! This stuff dries incredibly quick, so make sure you know where you want to apply and work it in your skin with the quickness. Start from the legs and work your way up. 3. Don't get anything wet. It needs at least 4 hours to really set in and any wet spot on your skin will be noticeable esp if you're pasty like me. I feel like I'm going to be using both bottles of this stuff over the summer. If I can't lay out, it doesn't mean I can't look like I do.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not worth a penny spent on it
I am ok with faking a tan and being a little orange. It's somewhat expected. I DID NOT expect for a sunless tanner to turn me green. I followed all directions and have spray tanned a lot so I don't consider myself a beginner at self tanning applications. This is not worth you looking like the grinch. Thankfully I noticed my feet turning green first so I immediately showered. Mind you I only had it on for 10 minutes.

Madison from ID
This spray tan does not last at all on me, it washes off as soon as I shower. I followed directions and left in on 4-6 hours before showering and tried leaving it on over night and it will not absorb into my skin. I've even tried exfoliating and putting lotion on before I apply. I guess it's good for if you just want to look tan for a day or few hours but you cannot sweat or get in or near water or it will run off the skin. 👎🏻
Fav spray tan product!!! I'm
Lylasnayna from Kingsport, Tn
I started keeping a continual fake tan year round about 5 years ago and after a lot of trial and error settled on this product and one other to alternate between. I self tan after every other day after my shower to get the most realistic color. Also, I only cover my face, neck, arms, and chest. I do this year round as it makes me feel better especially during the cold months. This product dries quickly, gives the best realistic coverage, with the least problems of any of the other brands! I would definitely recommend it to amateur and professional tanners, because it's really so easy to use. Lastly, the other brand I alternate with is St Tropez express tan in the blue bottle which I also buy at Ulta. Try it because, practice makes perfect and a year round tan definitely makes me feel much better during the winter months.
A must have for my pasty winter months
Andrea from New York
I love this product! It gives me beautiful color during the long winter months. It doesn't turn orange like other products. I get compliments all the time, wondering how I've managed to get so sun kissed!
It's a great product, but have a mitt ready
Megan from North Dakota
This gives nice color, but be sure to have a tanning mitt ready to use as it does spray out a little splotchy and will need to be blended in. I would also recommend applying in the shower or on a towel to catch the excess spray, laying lotion on thick on your toes to act as a barrier, and take your time spraying and blending. It seemed like it dried fairly quick and doesn't have a super potent smell. Some of the color does rinse off with the first shower, but I still liked the color and glow that was left. I will use this product again.
Doesn't do much
Kayla from Michigan
I've tried it several times now, and it doesn't do much at all. I can barely see any color (and I got the dark shade), its prettier when you first apply it but then the next morning doesn't look like anything. I like jergens better.
:) from Bay Area
I honestly love this product people say that the spray isn't the best it's because they aren't pressing down all the way! Best inexpensive tanning mist!!
I would buy this again
Kate from Spokane wa
I used this in the evening, the first time and thought it was a sun tanner, but I didn't read the label correctly and it was a sunless tanner. Never the less I love how natural the color is on dark, and I would boy this again. The spray is also great so you don't get it in your hand or need a applicator. If you do get some in your hand there is no orange color as well and comes off easy
Omg just NO
kschu from Troy, MI
This is by far the worst tanning spray I've ever used. The spray comes out so uneven and literally goes everywhere thank the good lord I did it in my shower. Save your money and time DO NOT BUY. Gel or foam works sooooo much better.
Jen black from Minnesota
It's not orange, but it's not dark. I am fair as fair gets and ordered the dark. And I got just a few shades of bronze. Doesn't smell, and isn't very strong as far as longevity.
DO NOT BUY THIS
Sims from North Carolina
THIS IS NOT A GOOD SPRAY TAN. I am a red head and that means I am very pale. It also means I am constantly trying to find a tanner that works. This was not one of them. The spray does not come out evenly and spits. It would stain my skin and left spots on my skin and patches.
Golden Glow from Atlanta, GA
I put this product on a few hours before bed and sleep with it overnight. It's completely dry in 10 minutes! AMAZING! Which means no creases from bending your elbows. It leave a nice golden glow. I've religiously used St Tropez up until I tried this out. This is waaayyyy better than St Tropez and waaayyyy cheaper! Amazing deal.
Good product that works, but not what I thought it was.
Erin from North Carolina
I normally use the St. Moritz Mousse; I bought this product hoping it would be an aerosol mist (like a hairspray) I could use on hard to reach areas like my upper back with minimum rubbing in. Its annoying to always ask my husband to do my back for me! I planned to use on my ankles, knees, and hands too.
Unfortunately the spray comes out more like a splatter than a fine mist and requires significant rubbing in, and if you want to spray directly to your body, there is a lot of over-spray. I tested in my shower so I could wash off excess spray.
The good news is the color is MUCH darker than the mousse. I quite like the payout and may continue to use it for that alone, but I will spray on to a mitt rather than my body. If you are looking for a mist to hit hard-to-reach areas, this ain't it, but is still a good all-around self tanner product.
Love the color!
Britt from Phila
Love then color! When applying definitely use a mitten. Definitely recommend 8-12 hours before showering the color does wash off every time exposed with water.
Buy it! Better than the expensive brands
Maria from Chicago
The person who said is turns your skin green only had it on for 10 minutes. The green formula transforms into a more natural color on you once you leave it on.
As long as you exfoliate, moisturize, and use a mitt this will not streak. I've used so many self tanning products such as loving tan, st tropez, jergens. Etc.
This BY FAR is the best one. It naturally fades and I've never had to remove it. Loving Tan grips on the skin and I'd have to remove it before applying another coat or else it would be super uneven.
I love this product. I wake up with a bronze glow which is especially nice during quarantine. Just try it! Such a good price!
Cheyenne :) from Linthicum, Md
since i'm really pale and all of my friends are pretty tan, i was looking for a quick way to fix that. this made me so tan! i'm in love with it, i don't know how to use it on my face yet, i'm still trying to figure out how
EmiB from PA
I applied this is two layers and it looked even and pretty dark. It was a good color and I was so happy with the way it looked when I woke up. Then I showered and it almost all came off! Maybe 1/4 of the tan stayed behind. It doesn't look bad, just very natural and not that much of a difference for all the hassle.
hailey from texas
Not good. came out way to dark and streaky
Sprayed in a stream instead of a mist
Jade from Anaheim
Tried rinsing the cap under hot water guess I got a faulty one
I wouldn't recommend for everyone
Tori :) from South Carolina
I have been using this for a couple of years because it doesn't irritate my skin or make me itch. It is instant but I would recommend wearing it 6 hours or more so the tan will set. I do have a tan skin tone on the lighter side, but I would honestly not recommend this for someone who is pale. It darkens quickly, so it's gonna look super unnatural on a pale person. Also, if you don't use a tanning mit/washcloth you are gonna have some dark streaks. It needs to be evened out because it's not a foam or gel, which people usually just use their hands to spread out.
I would buy again
Vic from RI
I used this for the first time the other day. I'm still tanned after one application, no streaks either. So far I really like this product I used a mit to apply and I actually fell asleep with it on by accident instead of only waiting 4-6 hours. I took a shower right when I got up and it turned out perfect still honestly. Definitely would buy again, if you don't use a mit to apply tanner I would definitely suggest investing in one it makes a huge difference.
Beautiful bronze tan for fair skin
CarRoe from Missouri
I bought this in the shade dark! Gave me a gorgeous fake tan, I buy it two bottles at a time. Apply to moisturized skin with a tanning mitt. It drys quickly and is so good! Trust me, being a fair skinned red head, I have tried a ton of self tanners and this one takes the cake!
Mel from Woodstock
The color is perfect, looks really natural.
Susie from Phoenix, AZ
I have been using this for years. One application lasts a while. But it is a very beautiful tan color.
Beautyaddict159 from Charlotte N.C.
I really wanted to love this product but I just can't stand to look like an oompah loompah anymore! It comes out orange and after a few hours it only gets worse. I look like I rolled in Doritos. The applicator is messy too and sprays out everywhere! Very hard to use! Because the applicator is sporadic, I get it on my hands and bathroom counter and it stains immediately! No chance of washing it off! Very disappointed!
Love this tanner!
CRoe from Missouri
So worth it! Gives my fair skin a beautiful tan, not orange at all!
