After having a few skin cancers removed I do my best to protect my skin and I don't like being too pale in the summer.

Needed a self tanner
kathleen n on Jun 9, 2015
Most of the time, self-tanner is so light it doesn't improve my white legs. Is there a sampler I can buy to try it out?

how long does it last?
A shopper on May 19, 2014
Best Answer: I do notice that some traces come off onto my towel when I take my next day's shower, but the effects after using, for example, two days in a row, last 3 to 5 days, I suppose depending on your skin color. I'm really fair skinned. The best part is the way it blends more evenly than others I've used, and there is no stinky odor like I found with less expensive products. Hope this helps.

does this clog pores/cause breakouts if used on face?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2012
Best Answer: I have no idea since now that it's summer and I'm outdoors all day (shame on me!) I am truly sun tanned. My highly reactive skin had no problems with it when I tested it, trying to perfect application technique, on other more reactive skin areas I have, including inside wrist and on neck. Honestly, this still doesn't precisely predict facial reaction. Sorry.... I'll ifnd out in November when our California sun wanes

can this be used on your face?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2012
Best Answer: Yes I use this on my face. I put it on 2 to 3 x a week then my moisturizer. I love it on my face and legs. Gives great color. I will be honest though, I'm 52 yrs old and have some age spots. It will highlight those spots. That is why I don't use it every day.

I'm looking for a self-tanner that is fragrance free? Can you tell me whether yours is?

Don L on Jul 1, 2015
Best Answer: This lotion isn't 100% fragrance free. It goes on smelling clean and light enough that it wouldn't clash with any scent you use later, but after a few hours, you do smell a hint of tanner (which you'd know well if you've used other tanners). If, however, you're just looking for something non-perfumey, then this product would work well. Additionally, I really like the tan shade that this lotion produces more than others. I have olive skin, and this tanner looks very natural!

how long does it take to dry/ develop?
A shopper on Nov 11, 2013
Best Answer: Not very long, a few minutes to dry but the color isn't immediate so I usually take an evening bath and apply the lotion. It drys by the time I am ready for bed and the color appears by morning. I have applied in the morning before work and the color intensifies through the day. I love this product. It is the only sunless tanner that I will put on my face. It does not break me out! Enjoy!

Is this very water resistant?
karen on Dec 26, 2012
Best Answer: Not so much. . . it's a self-tanner, not a sunscreen. Best way to use it in my experience is apply right after exfoliating, then leave it on overnight. If you plan on using it outdoors, apply an at least an hour before you go out, then be sure to apply a good sunscreen on top of it.
