    I have yet to find a sunless tanner that I can tolerate on my skin comfortably. They all seem to sit on my skin and feel sticky; and I've used many different types and brands, from sprays, lotions, and gels. I've had it professionally applied in a booth as well; it's always the same feeling.

    But these products are essential to someone who doesn't want to bake in a bed or the sun to get that glorious glow. The trick is to EXFOLIATE! You don't need an expensive scrub. Take a hot bath, scrub your skin with a wash cloth and shave. If you don't feel completely squeaky clean, a couple of handfuls of baking soda will do an excellent job.

    So, if I were to choose a self tanner as a favorite, then it would be this one. Why? The smell! It's sweet and citrus-y. I actually enjoyed using it. Be sure to let it dry as completely as you can. After you've let it sit for about ten minutes, you can rub the remaining sticky places into your skin; it won't hurt anything--just wash your hands after. Then put on a long sleeve pajama top and full legged pajama bottoms, turn up the AC and get some shut eye. The longer you can stand to leave sunless stuff on, the happier you'll be with your results.

    If you get dark ankles/knees/elbows/cuticles, don't sweat it. Take a quick shower in the morning (no baths after sunless tanning; the chemicals haven't settled into your skin) and use that wash cloth again on those places vigorously. Most of it will rub off; the residue will work itself off in a day or two.

    Good luck!

    The color was good, but you have to use A LOT. I agree with another reviewer that you can use a whole can of this stuff -- actually I think you could get 2 good tans from it. First application I sprayed lightly and was blotchy from it. 2nd try, I used a lot and also used my hands to blend it in and the color came out very nice. The sprayer is not the "air brush" variety it claims to be. Mine sputtered and spewed. So I had to rub it in, which is what I wanted to avoid to begin with. The smell is okay. They all tend to stink, in my honest opinion.

    I used it and my tan was streaky and blotchy. I didn't like it at all. And it does smell bad later

      It is what it is, fake tanning spray, so don't act all surprised when it looks and smells like one. It works great for me.

        This is SO great! You don't even have to rub it in! It's so light, you just spray it on, and it dries so fast. Plus, it doesn't smell bad at all! I'm very fair skinned, and this looks so natural on me. I do 2 applications every couple days, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on my great tan!

          I applied this and then came online to read the reviews. I was a bit scared after some of the comments, but this is GREAT stuff. I've been using Banana Boat's summer color lotion for a long time and people always think I've been tanning, so I knew that the color would be realistic. I decided to give the spray on version a try, and I'm amazed at how great it looks! Honestly, it looks more even than my outdoor tans usually do. I don't have ANY streaks, and I have a gorgeous all over tan. As for the smell...I don't think it's great, but my son came in and asked what smelled like gummy bears...so it must not be that bad.

            Comments about Banana Boat Sunless Summer Color Self-Tanning Mist, 5 oz:

            Having read reviews that can itself does not last long, I used this on my back and hands only--and rubbed lightly into my face--hoping spray would make application easier on those areas. Worked GREAT! Smelled WONDERFUL, and took only two LIGHT coats to get a tan that matched my L'Oreal Sublime Bronze lotion (in natural)! The key is applying in LIGHT coats--too much keeps it from ever drying completely on your skin, which keeps it from working/"sticking" to your skin. Great, natural tan color on this fair-skinned Floridian! The can states that the established tan will last about a week, which is amazing since I had to reapply Banana Boat daily (before switching to this plus L'Oreal Sublime on rest of skin). I am very happy with this purchase.

            Applies easily, though I recommend blending it in with your hands - when I didn't, I had streaks on my legs. Gives me deep color that lasts for a solid week. The smell is slightly overpowering, so use it in a ventilated room. I absolutely love it and have gone through 5 bottles without looking like an Oompa Loompa!

            I'm an experienced self tanner and have used every brand in every price range. I applied this to my fair legs and didn't see ANY color change after 3 hours! I used quite a bit, too. I applied with gloves to clean, exfoliated skin. Did I get a bad can? I can't imagine anyone rating this well with little to NO color change?!

            It's good stuff, it goes on well, the color is nice, and it even smells nice BUT, the sprayer doesn't work that well. To get the back of my legs, I have to contort myself, lest I turn the can upside down. If you accidentally do turn the can upside down, you have to wait several hours before it will spray again.
