      I have fair skin, and burn easily. Used this many times a day in the Caribbean and thrilled with my tan and protection this provided. A 10 day trip and bottle is still 1/4 full. Loved it!!!

            This should not be advertized as an instant bronzer. I used 3 days in a row with no bronze what so ever. Very dissatisfied.

              This is my go to sunscreen for the beach or a cruise. It goes on evenly and really saves my skin from burning. The bronzer looks so natural and even better than my natural tan!

                I love this product so much! It smells amazing and feels amazing. It also gives you a little touch of natural color. And though this was my first time out in the sun, I didn't burn at all. I just got a subtle tan.

Some of the ingredients contained in the product could cause damage to the acrylics in a tanning unit. We recommend using a product designed specifically for use during indoor tanning. :)

                    • Q:

                      I love Australian gold tanning Lotion products. I recently learned about the bronzer, and purchased one. (AG spray gel sunscreen spf 8 with instant bronzer) But I learned today that the bronzer washes off in the shower, so what is the sense in buying it? Will I still be able to get a tan with it? I'm light skinned, but tan easily. I tan in a tanning bed 2 to 3 times a week. I'd love your recommendation on which of your products to buy. The intensifier? The bronzer? The rapid tanning product? I'm so hooked on the smell and don't want to switch to something new.
                      advice please.

                        Hi Debb! Thank you for reaching out on this! The Australian Gold Spray Gel SPF with Bronzers contain a cosmetic bronzer that will rinse off with soap and water. The main purpose of this product is to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UVA/UVB rays. The cosmetic bronzer is added into the product for those that wish to have a hint of color that will rinse off later in the shower.

                        Since this product contains SPF I would not recommend using it during an indoor tanning session. The product is designed for outdoor use only. All of the Australian Gold products sold by Ulta are for outdoor use and not indoor tanning.

                        I hope this helps Debb!

                        A:

                        Hi Mila! The bronzers in this product will definitely not leave you orange but rather provide a very light hint of color on your skin. :) However, if you are looking for a self tanner then I would suggest purchasing a product designed specifically for self tanning and will include the sunless bronzer DHA.

                        The main purpose of the SPF 30 with Bronzers is to provide your skin with protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays while also giving you a slight hint of color while laying at the beach, pool, etc. The bronzers in this product will wash away with soap and water so it would not last for 5-7 like your typical self tanner.

                        I hope this answers your question!

                        Hi Jessica! The main purpose of this product is to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays. The instant bronzer will provide your skin with a nice hint of color. However, that instant color will wash away with soap and water. Typically self tanners contain an ingredient that develops color on your skin which will last anywhere from 5-7 days. This sunscreen does not include that type of ingredient.

                      Will the bronzer in this last all day at the beach, even when exposed to sand and salt water? Can the bronzer stain light colored clothing and swimwear?
                      Asked on 2/7/2018 by Stacy from undisclosed

                      • Brand Expert

                        A:

                        Hi Stacy! Such great questions! The instant bronzer in the SPF 30 is actually caramel and considered a natural bronzer. A natural bronzer is meant to provide temporary color on the skin and will wash away with soap and water. If you are wearing the product and plan to expose your skin to water/sand it will more than likely wash away after time and need to be reapplied.

                        To answer your second question, yes, this product could stain light colored clothing if it is not treated properly. The bronzers in this product can occasionally transfer to clothing in the same fashion as a bronzer or foundation that you would apply to the face. If you find some of the bronzer transfers onto your clothing or swimwear just be sure to attempt to remove the stain and wash the item promptly. I hope that answers everything! :)
