Great gradual tanner
I have this in medium - dark. I have used this tinted lotion for many years now, it was my first ever venture into self tan growing up and it really gives me a nice 'warm glow' to the skin. I have olive-toned skin as I have a European background and this doesn't make me look extremely orange.
Though, I love when self-tans have that bit of orange warmth to them as it just compliments my skin colour and I just like the look of it personally! Some may disagree but I personally like it on my skin tone, I have seen the same products I use on friends and some just don't look right on their lighter skin so it just comes down to personal preference/trial and error.
This product is pigmented enough to give you a subtle colour and if applied daily can definitely see a difference in a few days! But this can streak as it has a fair amount of self-tan in it so be sure to really work it into the skin. Gloves aren't needed as its not THAT pigmented!
Lotion-wise, it is moisturising. Not the best I have ever used for that purpose but does well. Will continue to repurchase this!

Happy with this product for a natural all over tan. Because it is gradual you are less likely to miss patches.
The all over colour is the most natural that I have tired.

Works perfectly in small amounts!
If you apply this around 2 or 3 days in a row you get a beautiful, natural looking tan. However, if you apply more than that you start to get really bad orange blotches and you can really tell that you are fake tanning. Other than that I like the smell, and i like the feel of it on my skin - I also notice it moisturises really well.

Natural Looking Tan
This product is great for building a natural looking tan by applying it each day. It is very easy to apply and it is a body moisturiser and tanning product in one which is great as this saves time. The smell is ok as far as fake tan products go. It gives a natural looking tan and allows you to build the level of tan that you are after.

didnt do anything for me
Whilst i love the smell of the moisturiser on my legs, I've never seen a difference tan wise. I have even tested only applying it to one leg for aa while to see if there was a difference (with no sucess). Another thing i dont like is the grimmy, greasy feeling you get after first applying it, makes you feel like you need a shower again. I can only assume it works better for pale skin i have medium and got th medium t dark version.

nice glowing tan
What i really like about this gradual tanning lotion is that it doesn't have a very heavy fake tan smell to it and that it leaves my skin with a nice glow and a natural looking tan- not orangey at all. i mainly use it on my legs. After 2-3 days of application i'm happy with the colour that i've built up (i use med-dark) then every second day or so i apply it again to maintain the colour- just make sure that you are careful around your knees/ankles- it can look patchy if you haven't exfoliated but otherwise a very good product overall

natural looking glow!
I used this product in the winter months when my tan olive skin gets a little bit duller due to lack of sun! This product is very natural looking when applied and really does give that extra glow! It is a moisturiser and had self tanning agents which is great because it leaves skin soft and glowing without the use of fake tan. However, make sure you exfoliate before you use this especially if you are shaving, because I once shaved without exfoliating and put this on and ended up with tiny brown dots on my thighs and under my calves which I thought was due to shaving, when really it was the product trapped in my pores! Other than that incident, a nice product.

this product is great to put on in the morning and have a stunning, glowing tan at night. except, after one day of using it gradually goes orange and really fake looking. it turned quite streaky on my legs too which was a little embarrasing considering that i only found out the day after. also, the smell is quite revolting and off putting

will rub doritos on myself instead next time
I have never used a proper fake tan before as i am natually tanned ad tan easily even in light sunlight. but due to skin conditions, behind my knees and in my elbows and some patches here and there don't tan.
i tried to use this to even it all out and i turned orange even with a small amount rubbed in evenly.
exfoliated and cleaned it off and tried again, same result.
i don't know what people define as a 'golden tan'
but this product does not give my idea of it
it just looks gross, orange and far from natural, even for a supposed gradual tan

I found that this product didn't make my skin turn orange ! A great plus. This product also works as a great moisturizer. The only down side is the scent. The scent kind of puts you off. But I still highly recommend because it doesn't make your legs look like cheese puffs! Also ensure that you get the right shade for your skin, I made that mistake and I looked like a cheese puff!
