It's a tanning mousse, pretty simple and straighforward there. I used a tanning mitt to apply. Oh, also, I did purchase the "dark" version because parts of my body are already tan so I didn't see the point of getting the original, and I intended for my lighter parts to match my tanner parts, if that makes any sense.
I have never used a tanning product, ever. However, I do get naturally tanned very quickly. That is, if I drive all day with my arm out the window, I will see the beginning of a tan the next day. I used to live near the beach, and I would do everything I could to not tan, yet I was always considerably tanner than I hoped, even after a short while.
Anyway, enough about that. Here are the results:
As you can see, the untanned leg is quite pale. I only applied on my legs, because I just wasn't sure about the whole thing. But for a comparison, these are my arms:
I did finish applying to both legs, and I must say, this whole thing was not a good experience for me. I felt traumatized by losing my paleness for some reason. The first day, I tried as hard as I could to scrub the tan off in the shower, but it fought back, although it was much lighter.
Once the tan was in place though, I really liked the colour and how it matched my 'real' tan, although it was hard to get used to tanned legs!
Two days later, I had a change of heart and applied the product again, trying to have an open mind and also, wanting to verify that yes, it does work very well.
Although I have not reapplied the product and have no intentions of, I will say as a product, it is very effective. I did not experience any streaking, although I did have to be cautious around my tattoos, which is to be expected. I applied it from my upper thighs all the way to my feet, and I thought it applied evenly and it was fairly easy to do. The foam was airy and light, and it didn't drip.
I used this at night, and one drawback I can say is that it had a lingering slightly unpleasant scent, but based on other sources, I think this may be the case with a lot of self tanning products.
Overall, I say if self-tanning is your thing, this is for sure a good product. Not orange, inexpensive, and easy to use. I got it from Amazon for around $11. The bottle is also huge- 200 ml, so quite a bit of product that should provide many uses.
