The first day I applied it I saw the difference in a few hours,very light and natural. The day after, I applied it, wondering if it was the orange day, but it stayed natural and I went darker. The third day it starts getting orange, so I let pass a few days before another aplication. It smells good when you apply but after it sets it starts giving you the scent but not very strong. One bad thing it's that definitely it has to be put with gloves,since I washed my hands several times after aplication and they still stained.

I am very very very pale. I did a light application at first, only on my legs, and barely saw a change, but at least it wasn't orangey. I did a heavier application the next day and liked the color. However, if I applied 2 days in a row, I had obvious streaks. So every other day worked better. I stopped using for a few days and there were definite streaks as it faded. No bad smell at all. I had no problem with knees and ankles being too dark, just my inability to apply evenly on my ankles. It's the best self tanner I've tried so far, but not perfect.

    Comments about Bain de Soleil Mega Tan Sunscreen With Self Tanner, SPF 4, 4 fl oz:

    I used it several times and didn't hang out in the sun long as it's fall already. But I got a pretty good tan immediately. And it is VERY light weight, you can't even fell it on your skin. Smell is strong but not annoying.

      Hate the Smell

      Comments about Bain de Soleil Mega Tan Sunscreen With Self Tanner, SPF 4, 4 fl oz:

      I bought this expecting it to smell like Bain de Soleil suntan gelee, but it didn't. It has that same heavy scent that so many lotions have nowadays. I only used twice, but it seemed to do nothing. Threw it away because I hate the smell. Why would't they use the same fragrance as their other products?

      Comments about Bain de Soleil Mega Tan Sunscreen With Self Tanner, SPF 4, 4 fl oz:

      I have used this product for years. I had trouble finding it for quite a while. So glad that Drugstore.com has it! I only wish it had a bit more SPF. I use a higher SPF product on my face, neck and chest. Loreal has a good product. I also wish it came in a larger size. I use alot of it. I always apply before going outside. Let set thoroughly before sun exposure. It stays on quite well that way. Also be careful applying to feet,elbows,heels where it can stain. Also thoroughly wash hands and fingernails after application.

      Comments about Bain de Soleil Mega Tan Sunscreen With Self Tanner, SPF 4, 4 fl oz:

      This is best used along with the sun. I love this tanning lotion. I couldn't find it for years and then found it on Drugstore.com a couple of years ago. I'm going to buy some latex gloves. It tends to stain around my finger nails even after using baby wipes to clean my hands. I'm fair skinned and went to the Outer Banks for ten days years back. Using this I never burned except for one place that I guess I missed w/ the lotion. Use while in the sun and it works great.

        LOVE Bain de Soleil Mega Tan... I wouldnt use ever day (as with any tanner will get funky color with too much use). However, using once or twice a week & sitting out in the sun for a brief period of time ~ will give u an amazing tan . only negative that comes to mind is that this product is very difficult to find (from where i live) Glad to have found it here ~ Thank U Drugstore.com :)

          Comments about Bain de Soleil Mega Tan Sunscreen With Self Tanner, SPF 4, 4 fl oz:

          Most important is, how naturally does it tan? More naturally and evenly than anything else out there, without splotches. But wait, there's more, as the infomercials say: Unlike other tanners without moisturizers that can leave you not just splotchy, but un-moisturized (= looking OLDER), this moisturizes AND gives you at least SPF4 protection- so on the only sunny hour or two you get a shot at all week, THIS is the end-of-the-rainbow product to make everyone else look old and pasty by comparison.

            So far, this is the best tanner I have used that delivers a natural looking tan color. The size of the bottle is small however and it goes quickly. Wish it was available in an 8 oz. bottle.
