Most Helpful Positive Review The Best Sunless Tanning Product On Earth
I love this product . I dont' have alot of time to sit in the sun , but now I don't need to anyway. I found one of the best Self tanners in the USA . Just rub it on , wait about 5 minutes tops , and it looks like you took a trip to the tropics. I have used it twice and look extremely dark , and I still have a full bottle ! I highly recommend Jergens Sunless Glow Tanning Mousse .
Most Helpful Critical Review Do patch test first!
Application was easy and after the first application the color was fine to me. I was planning to add a second coat the next day because I wanted a deeper tan, but unfortunately about 7 hrs later my arms started to have some small itchy bumps on it. No doubt it was this tanner since it was the only thing I put on besides my body lotion. I highly advise people to do a patch test first to make sure you're not allergic to this product. Unfortunately, I'm a newbie at this and I wasn't aware that you should do this. I don't even think they recommended doing this on the bottle. If you're not allergic then this product is decent and for sure good to buy if you're on a budget.

I bought the light colored tanner. I wanted to even out my tan from working in the yard. I used a mitt to apply and I believe that helped immensely. It was my first time using a self tanner. It definitely takes a lot longer than60 seconds to dry and you will feel somewhat sticky for awhile after. Overall it gave me nice color. I would recommend
Gives me a great tan

I get this every time and it's amazing . Highly recommend
You get what you pay for...

This does not dry in 1 minute. Honestly, I'm not sure if it dried after an hour. I applied with a mit and still ended up with steaks. It felt heavy and sticky. Over the next few days, it wore off in patches, making it look like I had a skin condition.
It retains 2 stars because the color was not orange and it is very low cost. Might work for someone who only wants 1 day of color.
Not an expert at self tanning
Brig55 from Florida
I bought this product because I haven't been able to go to the beach due to Covid. I bought the darkest one since I am Hispanic I thought I should. But I think o should have started with the lighter one. It appears orange in some parts. I only used it on my legs. I did not like it.
Great for newbies, but very sticky
Leah from Michigan
This was my first experience with fake tan and I was pleasantly suprised. The product blended out so well (I used a mitt) and did not have an awful smell. The smell is actually quite nice. I am very pale with pink undertones and bought deep bronze. Other reviewers said the product was too orange, however, I thought it was perfect. I am pale and found it lightened me about 1 skin tone. Not orange and not too dark. My biggest complaint that might keep me from buying this again is the stickiness. The bottle says it dries in 60 seconds but that was not true for me at all. I had it on for a few hours and it was sticky and pretty uncomfortable the whole time. However, I do like the color and price of the product and it blends out so nicely, so I may buy it again, but beware the stickiness!

This self tanner looks great! Be sure to follow the proper steps before applying the self tanner! Over all the color looked great and very natural! You do have to apply 2 coats in 2 days to get the dark color pay off. This was a little bit aggravating but worth it for the price. It gave me a very bronzed look. I will be honest by saying that I would like it to be a little bit darker but I am happy with the way it turned out! One tip is when applying the second time be sure to moisturize your hands about 20 minutes after applying it so it does not develop as dark as the rest of the body! This will give it a more natural look!
Orange and Splotchy
Amy from Texas
This is by far the worst self tanner I've used. The mouse comes out light brown but disappears as soon as you get it on your skin. This makes it impossible to see where you have applied it, or if you have smoothed it out properly. I've got super orange spots and spots that are completely untouched.
Good color for the price
BeckHeck from Connecticut
My go- to self tanner used to be banana boat, but since they changed their formula and ruined it I had to look elsewhere. This one is pretty good, especially for the price. I've applied two coats and it's developed a nice color. My only complaint is that it feels sticky on my skin, even after it's "dry". After showering, it's much better!
Horrible orange color
Ashley from PA
All i have to say is that this better wash off! I used it last night and now my legs are a bright orange!
Good for Newbies
Catie T from Boston, MA
I'm fairly new to self tanners this is about the third product I've used. It has been my favorite by far but you have to use it right. Always on clean and moisturized skin, always make sure to exfoliate. Only do one coat a day to make sure you get a good feel for the color. It will change you a few shades at a time and won't get you too dark in one use. I used with a St. Tropez glove (a little more expensive, but higher quality imo) and it went flawlessly.
nharrington93 from oregon
let me just start out by saying I'm PALE, ghostly even...I bought the deep bronze and after exfoliating and shaving I applied this before bed with a mit..woke up the next morning with the PERFECT glowy tan and I mean perfect! it wasn't orange, it was the perfect bronzed look. It doesn't have the horrific smell of most self tanners, the only complaint I have is it was still pretty sticky even after drying down. after showering the night after application, the sticky feeling was gone and the tan was still perfect.
Better than their lotion!
EdenMomOf2 from Eden, MD
I love that the foam is tinted, so you can see where it's going on. It also honestly dries really fast, which is great as long as you apply it quickly. It doesn't leave streaks, and it isn't too orange tinted (though honestly I can still tell a difference between this and my natural tan color). I am pale with neutral undertones and plenty of freckles, and the freckles still come through easily making it more natural looking. It doesn't smell great, but doesn't smell anywhere near as bad as the lotion. Definitely a good affordable option for a few days worth of color!
Kristin from RI
This stuff is TERRIBLE! I put it on my legs and instantly had some light, natural color to them-about 1 or 2 shades darker than what my legs were before. Now if only it stayed like that, I would've given this 5 stars. Not even 12 hours after applying and my legs turned totally orange. Defiantly not "light bronze" or "natural looking" like the product advertises. I look like I have carrot sticks for legs.
Smittenlex from Fresno, Ca
By the second application I have the color I like. I wash my hands immediately after and haven't had issues with staining. Comes out even and natural looking.
Meghan from Sayreville, New Jersey
This product is amazing. If you're using it on your face, just add a drop of it mixed with your moisturizer. It doesn't turn orange at all!
Morgg25 from Arkansas
I will say, this DOES work. However, it's insanely streaky & orange. Not a natural color at all & I actually am fairly tan already. I tried it 3 separate times & each time it looked awful. So bad that my boyfriend even pointed out how splotchy & orange I looked.
Really good for the price
Beauty Enthusiast from San Diego
I got pretty lucky with this product! I am naturally fair, on the olive side when I don't see the light of day, but this product gives me that perfect sun kissed bronze tan that I get from being outside for hours. I love the convenience and I use the deep tan formula, but I can see how this can be orange so maybe be mindful of that if you're more fair than I am so probably try the lighter formula. It's pretty messy, but what bronzing product isn't? So do it before you go to sleep and make sure you get your elbows, ankles, and knees (front and back) really good bc those spots are the obvi spots. Good luck! Give it a try!
Can be good
Aly from Maine
I love this tanner for a body tan, but when I used it on my face(I tried many different methods) it turned orange.
Do not use on face!!!
Em from Elbridge, NY
This product is great for your body and gives it a nice tan look. Do not use this on your face!! My face turned an orange color and did not look the same as my body!
this is itchy and burns
Nia from Florida
first of all, this is Orange!!! it burns and now my thighs are itchy and feel weird! horrible product!
Nia from P.R.
This is a horrible product, the light bronze it's very light to show and the deep bronze looks completely orange. It's sticky but not unbearable. And the smell it's not bad. I'm just mad i spent money on something that looks orange and unnatural.
top tier sunless tanner
kayswizz from PA
i have been using this consistently for about a year and a half and i would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a sunless tanner! make sure you exfoliate and cleanse your skin before using this, and DO NOT shave right beforehand as it can cause irritation, so shave the day before. this stuff REALLY WORKS. it's maybe just the tiniest smidgen orange but it looks natural. i'm usually the first or second shade of foundations and i have a pink undertone in my skin, and i find that it takes 2 or 3 coats of this to really get the shade i want. it does wash off pretty quickly though, i'd say 3 showers and it starts fading. on the second day it looks the best. my advice is to apply it at night, sleep with long sleeves and long pants (to prevent creasing) and then wash it off in the morning. i've never had issues with creasing in the elbows or any kind of weird patchiness when done this way! i see no reason to pay double the price for the st. tropez one once you can figure this one out
I wouldn't buy this again
Kate from Washington
When I use it. I don't use a tanning mitt. But I don't around 2 layers on my skin because I am fairly tan already but I wanted to look more tan. But after I did. My skin felt sticky and I could smell it on me. I tried masking the scent with perfume but it didn't work. I don't know why since I bought it the same day and when reading other reviews they really loved it. I still have a lot of product left so I'll continue using it but I'm gonna look for a new tanner the next time.
Looks as if you spent a few hours in the sun!
Tae from Missouri
I got this back in March for just a healthy complexion coming out of winter. I actually got the Deep Bronze shade and was a little worried it might be a little too dark for my Fair/Light skin, but it looks so natural and as if I had spent the day at the pool! It fades out naturally as well which is hard to find! Around rough areas like my elbows, wrists, hands, feet, and knees I mixed it with my moisturizer and that created no splotchy-ness! I definitely recommend this if you are someone who is looking for a tan that is natural and not orange.
