Easy to use but smelly
This stuff is really goof proof, especially for someone like me who has never used self tanner before. I have the mousse version and it does leave a sticky film once applied. I put it on at night before bed so I don't spend the day feeling sticky. It also has a yucky smell to it that lingers until you shower. On the plus side, it does leave a nice sun kissed glow that lasts if you apply everyday!
I would say this is not one of the best self tanners out there, it has such a horrible smell and it stays on you for a long time. The worst is when it would get on my cloths and not only stain them it penetrated into my cloths. Now the product itself works for a few hours doesn't give you much color but there is something there. Its not long lasting you hit the shower, pool, beach its gone.
this doesnt last long...it does give good color, but it comes off in the shower. also, the smell is HORRIBLE. however, if you want a light tan that isnt too deep or different than your natural skin color, this works.
At first, I thought this worked amazing! But the products came off in the shower and I felt like I had to re-apply it every single day. It got old fast. I started to smell, and turn orange. Not the best experience for me. I'd rather be pale.
i bought this a while ago for medium to dark & i must say, it is a bit better than the nivea sunkissed legs tanning lotion but still, i can't get over it. i'd put it on and even after hours, i'd have the smell on me. i did notice a small amount of color change on me but it wasn't as promising as the shades shown on the bottle. so be careful, results may vary depending on how you use it (ie: if you apply other moisturizers and lotions, daily use or every other day usage, etc). the application of this wasn't hard at all, the texture was almost like it was water based. it's important to wash your hands right after application because the smell stays and it just might turn the middle of your fingers orange (i know from experience). would i buy this again? no. i still have my bottle on my vanity and just wanted to get this review done. i think i might give it a second try and really test it out hardcore and blog about it at the same time.
The smell of this is absolutely horrible and any time that I've used it, I've noticed a lot of streaking once I go out into the sunlight. I'm very pale, so it may work better for darker skin tones, but it's a no go for me.
my go to
When I can't get my hands on Victoria Secrets airbrush self tanner I use this one in fair to medium. I love this self tanner. If you get the right color, apply it correctly, and daily you'll love it to. I do think they could improve the scent a little more though, its gotten a little better since it first came out though.
It smells like a wet dog
The DHA in it certainly does the trick of delivering a faux tan, but the formula smells so bad who wants it on their face? It literally smells like a wet dog that's been playing outside.
Changed the ingredients?
I used to love this stuff. It gave me a healthy glow. I think they have changed the ingredients or something though because now it turns my skin yellow. Yeah, you heard my right, a distinct YELLOW. I hate it now and it has a weird smell.
Natural Glow gave me a very nice, gradual tan. It really worked well for me after using for about a month. I have a beautiful drak color for winter, and it is cheaper than pay to go to the taning bed. Its also great to get color AND moisture for dry winter skin.
