Rated 4.05 out of 5 stars
I've tried just about every self tanner on the market over the last 10 years but this… this stuff is different than the others. First the application is easy & flawless. You can spray it directly on your skin or you can spray it on a mitt & apply. Either way, with proper skin prep (shave, exfoliate & moisturize at least a 1/2 day before tanning!) you will get an even, streak free tan. (I prefer spraying it into a mitt- it's less messy.) I usually apply at night, sleep in it & rinse in the morning for maximum color payoff & longevity. I've also done my chest, arms, legs & face in the morning before work & run out the door. No matter what, my tan develops beautifully & doesn't transfer onto my sheets or my clothing. This tanner usually lasts me about a week or so per application. If I need to touch up areas, its super easy. I also use Dolce Glow Mia to help extend the life & evenness of my tan. The only thing that kinda sucks is the price but for what it is, its worth every penny IMO. Plus a little goes a long way; 1 can has lasted me over a month & its not empty yet. I really can't say enough good things about this line. It's exquisite!
Let me start this by saying i have been a Spray Tan Artist for years, and consider myself a pro when it comes to sunless tanning. I Have wanted a self tanning mist with clean ingredients for a while, so that i can quickly touch up my face between full-body tans. I bought the dolce shade. To prep i exfoliated and waited an hour after my shower to apply it so that my pores wouldnt be open from the steam. I sprayed this on my chest and face, and used a mit to blend. I slept in it overnight. By the time i woke up It broke me out and clogged the pores on my face & chest. The color, though beautiful, was darker in dryer areas. It took me a couple showers to exfoliate it off completely, so if you have lower maintenance skin than me then this would be great for you!! Super long lasting and faded beautifully, no patchiness. I wonder if the guide color was the problem, not the formula itself. Im considering buying the "clear" shade to see if that one breaks me out too or not. Dont recommend dolce for sensitive skin, but if you have normal skin than there are plenty of redeeming qualities.

Love this product although kind of pricey.

I dont know if I got a defective bottle or what, but after giving this a fair shot over a few months I can geniunely say it's one of the worst fake tans I've ever used. Not once has it ever sprayed evenly, my bottle doesn't even work half the time, and it smells absolutely terrible straight from the get-go. Even smoothing everything out with a tanning mitt after application didn't help with the patchiness. It's also very orange (coming from an Italian with a cool olive skin tone). I got the light-medium shade and it still makes me look like an Oompa Loompa. It's so hard to get off, which could be a good thing if it looked decent, but because of how patchy it applies it wears off even patchier and then I'm stuck with a tiger stripe looking tan for what feels like forever! Imo, definitely not worth your money if this is how every bottle is :/

Purchased and reviewing 100% on my own. I actually really like this tan. The ease of application is unmatched. I did not have a issue with the spray nozzle like a lot of other people. It does spray upside down as well. It dries incredibly fast. No smell. It's a really pretty golden tan. For reference I'm a decently light ginger. If you're looking for a super deep, cool tone tan, this may not be it. The wear time is about the same as most others if you take care of it It doesn't get patchy as so long as you take care of your skin and the other thing I really like is on my third day I gently exfoliated and then I reapplied this which I normally would do the whole slopping of my skin off with a sandpaper thing but that sucks and so I tried to just apply this over the tan I already had with it and it looked really nice. So it topped up on itself pretty easily. The issue I have with this is the price. I've gotten two and a half tans out of one bottle and that's just too much money for it at home spray tan. I would love to buy this again and I just might but for only special occasions.

A few things I do like about this are that it dries REALLY fast, I havent seen it transfer, and it doesnt have a strong scent. Other than that it is so patchy, almost no color even after leaving it on for 10+ hours, and it doesnt last after 2 showers. Not worth the money, there are much better options out there

I have ordered this two times because I really wanted to try it based on the reviews. BOTH orders, the nozzle didnt work. It doesnt mist at all, the product just builds up at the nozzel and drips. Disappointing!

I wanted to love this so badly bc although the spray makes for messy application (I started using it in the shower to avoid getting it on the floor/walls of my apartment) it does apply streak-free and is such a beautiful, natural color. However, after a few days it gets SO patchy and it's so bad that it's embarassing. I am so disappointed it's not long-lasting.

Tired a ton of self tanners and just ended up getting sprayed at the salon. Tried this beauty and slept in it. Woke up and couldnt be more pleased. Even got the top of my hands without making a mess.
Wish I could be as positive as others. Could be because I don't self tan regularly, but I didn't think it worked well. Again, might have been the way I put it on. Worst part was that the bottoms of my feet got self tanner on them.

Wowowow!! I have tried almost every self tanner on the market, with Ultas being my favorite for the past few years actually! I had gotten this at a sample sale and am now converted! Although its pricey, its well worth it! Easy to use, pleasant scent, streak free, and the most gorgeous golden glow! No transfer and dries quicker than many other tanners.
Tbug from Columbus oh
I love this stuff! The price is a little hmmm but after i tried it (2nd time now) i fell instantly in love. Im not a reviewer either, and i just had to! You need this! It goes on evenly and a lot easier than some other brands. It had been streak free for me and no smell. I left it on over night and washed. N i love the results. To keep it up ill spray again in 2 days. Get it!

3 things i hate, fading in the inner elbows, fading on the chest and sticky application. HOW did it take SO LONG for a company to come up with a product that fixed all 3 issues? Oh, and you can double coat this for a way darker tan without pulling your first layer.
Is it overpriced? Probably by 5$ but this is the first time in 10 years ive actually continuously kept myself tan because the application before bed is so quick and simple.

I have probably used every self tanner out there being a ginger i cannot tan. This stuff is absolutely amazing i have never been streaky or had a bad smell from this. It sprays on so natural & even! This is a must & worth every penny!!
Kat from Pittsburgh, PA
Best color. Easy application. No streaks- just an even, hydrated, and beautiful color. I am so impressed. I even sprayed my face and it looked incredible. I got so many compliments on this. I have already ordered the mousse and the instant tanner. JUST BUY THIS. This is worth the cost. Hands down the best product i have ever used.

Yessss, just the glow I have been looking for! I worked at a tanning salon for years (and so I tanned for years) and saw the damage it does to our skin. Since then, I've tried MANY different mousses/ sprays/ lotions from MANY different brands. (St. tropez, il malkiage, Isle of Paradise, Jergens, etc.) and THIS is the best! I love the spray and the mousse. The spray is JUST like when I get spray tanned by a spray artist.

Lily from Las Vegas, NV
This mist is my absolute favorite tanning product I've ever tried. It doesn't dry my skin out and gives me the most beautiful color that lasts and doesn't smell weird. Easiest application and I always get to many compliments. Buying forever!!
Lolo from Los Angeles, CA
I really love this Dolce Mist. It was the very first one I tried since I wasn't very familiar with how to apply a tan. I like that it was super easy to spray on and it gave me full coverage. I was worried that I would mess it up and get streaks or look orange, but I didn't. I LOVE the beautiful bronzed glow that it gave me, no streaks...just a perfect glow!!!
