Good gradual tan
This Dove moisturiser also works as a gradual tan that builds up over a few days. You will notice a brown tan after a few days, however you will need to keep reapplying everyday to keep the consistency. It has a nice smell and blends well. Just remember like all tans you need to prep your skin first - exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
This one is so much better than the Johnsons holiday skins that I originally tried.

I really like this product, I use this and the letan one, I prefer this one as the colour builds up a few days faster than the letan one which takes about a week and im too impatient for that.
I have really pale skin but I use the medium - dark one, the colour is really nice and natural looking and the smell is alright compared to other gradual tanners. I just use a face wipe to clean the palms of my hands after using this and there is no dark build up at all. the colour is even and I not orange or streaky, its easily removed with a scrub in the shower. I have nothing bad to say about this at all I really like it.

Orange skin :(
It’s a great product and I love how it smells but it didn’t work well with me since it made my skin orange. I tried the fair to normal skin since I have white pasty skin that looks like I don’t go out much (yet I actually do). After I used it for a couple of months, my skin turned into a lighter shade of orange--not the natural tan that I was going for. I haven’t tried the normal to darker skin version of this product, though.

Smells good, but I went orange!
I am fair so I thought I'd give the lightest one a go. I turned so dark orange it wasn't funny. It did smell a little like the usual fake tan smell, but it also smelt warm and summery. Unfortunately for me I never used it again. I gave it to my Mum who had better results than I.

Am i even tanning?
This is nice and moisturising, but other than that, i see almost no difference in the colour of my skin. The smell is good, but where is my "summer glow"? I'm pretty dissapointed. I even tried it in medium-dark and still, no results.

Not sure if it works
Under some lighting I could swear I am a bit tanned, but really I think my skin might just completely reject this stuff.
I used the fair skin cream each night after my bath for a week straight and saw no difference, apart from having to change the sheets as I never felt that the moisturiser had completely absorbed into my skin so always went to bed feeling a bit sticky.
This was even after standing in front of the fan for a while trying to dry - not fun during the cold winter.

I'm sure this product has the potential for a good and natural tan but i did not see it. It left lines on my legs in parts, even though i double checked it was all even. It also leaves a terrible smell on your legs.

Great for a natural looking, golden tan!
I use this product all year round to maintain my summer tan. I love how this product not only adds colour to your skin but also makes your skin super soft. It is also quite pleasant smelling compared to other tanners, which tend to give off a strong scent. The down side - this is a very greasy moisturizer, so if you suffer from oily skin this is not for you!

I adore this product. I started to use it years ago and every now and again I'd get bored and get spray tans again or switch to other brands, but no matter what i always revert back to this! It is great value for money and smells so much better than the other brands. Love it! Not streaky at all, not greasy and it really does moisturise as well!

One of my favourites!
I am the type of person who likes to try out all different products in terms of gradual tanners, but it seems that I keep coming back to this one. A lot of people say they prefer fake tans over gradual tanners, but for me gradual tanners end up with a much more naturally tanned look. This one is great, it keeps my skin nice and moisturised, and after about 12 hours I can already see the results. You can also build it up to quite a dark tan by re-applying. Overall I would recommend giving it a go.
