This is the best sunless tanner on the market. As a fair complexion person, believe me when I say, that coppertone it the only one that has gotten the tan from a bottle down. There's no real odor, and the color is a nice brownish color, not orange at all. However, you need to apply it at least every 4-5 days to maintain the tan. As long as you make sure to take the time to spread the lotion in, it is impossible to get an uneven tan or tan lines.
My only complaint is that Coppertone used to have a sunless tanner w/ a bronzer in it, so that you could put it on 5 minutes before you went out and be tan, and then the bronzer would wash off in the shower while the general tan stayed on. But for some reason, they discontinued that product. So, now if you want to be tan when you got out, you have to give it several hours. I haven't quite figured how many hours it takes, but it's safe to say that if you put it on the night before, then you'll be tan when you wake up.
Oh and one last thing, don't freak out if you get the lotion on your clothes, cause I've done it plenty of times, and every single time it comes out w/in one wash.

I used this primarily on my legs and feet as my legs are slow to get a natural tan. While not a bright orange, the area it was applied to does have a slight orange cast, mostly noticed in natural sunlight or under florescent lights. The texture makes for easy even coverage if only a small amount is used. It dries quickly, again with using light coverage, making it easy to dress shortly after applying. I have not tried applying it to my face or anywhere other than my legs and, while not the perfect color, it does give my legs a fairly natural tan look.

    Comments about Coppertone Sunless Tanning Gradual Tan Moisturizing Lotion, 9 fl oz:

    I use daily, but if not put on evenly you can sure tell it. Great for face & neck! Legs, not so much! Arms is okay but not great! Face is main part that it's great for!

      This is a great everyday moisturizer and gradual tanner for your legs/body. Does not have that chemical smell that other self tanners have. It actually smells good. It's also very forgiving,it's tough to make a mistake and end-up with those horrible streaks or clumps of tan color because you did not evenly apply. I highly recommend it!

      Comments about Coppertone Sunless Tanning Gradual Tan Moisturizing Lotion, 9 fl oz:

      I used this just a few times before going on vacation and it produced a very light, natural tan. It was not dramatic or dark,but just enough to take away my winter white legs. I do not know how it will do with more frequent or prolonged application, but so far the results are superior in color and evenness to other brands used. Only complaint is I haven't found it locally.

        This is fantastic. A friend told me about it and having used everyone out there I was afraid to try it, She got it for me and I could not believe it. No orange, no streaking just a beautiful golden brown color. Makes your skin soft.......This is the one for me and so much cheaper than some others. Wish I would have tried this a long time ago. Fantastic *********

            I have used every self-tanner on the market, even the pricey ones. Leave it to good old Coppertone to create one that works well, doesn't have an odd aroma and actually moisturizes your skin at the same time.

                  I have used many self-tanners over the years but this one is the best, even more so now! Most products suffer from terrible odors or orange coloring but this one definitely has the best qualities to avoid such pitfalls. It is indeed white, very gentle smell, and extremely easy to apply, allowing the consumer to adjust the coloring over time. Don't waste time or money on other products - this is the keeper!

                    For someone who could definitely use some extra melanin, I had been toying with the idea of using a self tanning lotion for quite some time, but never got up the courage to do so with fear of turning orange, smelling pungent, spending a fortune on a product, and/or getting stuck in a time consuming routine just to keep up the tan. After reading reviews, I decided to give Coppertone Gradual Tan a try, and if it didn't work out, I would only be out [$] Upon opening, I was pleasantly surprised by the smell, expecting the worst. I was also surprised to see that the lotion was white! Maybe it's because I was a self tanning lotion virgin, but I assumed that it would be some shade of brown. After just one quick and easy application at night, I had a wonderfully healthy looking glow the next morning with no streaks in sight! Also, who knew that a self tanner could be such a good moisturizer, as well? Now when I shave my legs every morning, it's nothing but silky smoothness! I added one more "coat" the next day and, on the 3rd day, decided to maintain that color - a beautiful bronze that I could never even achieve in my wildest dreams, mostly because of my insistence on wearing SPF 50+ every time I go out in the sun, but I'm a cancer geneticist, so you should, too! No color is worth melanoma. Anyway, I digress. I now apply this on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, to maintain. My three suggestions would be to 1) DON'T wash your entire hands as the bottle says to. The first time I applied it, I washed my hands thoroughly and wound up with white fingers and hands. Now, I just use a damp tissue to wipe my palms and nails, but leave the rest be and it looks perfectly every time. 2) Don't forget your earlobes and also in between your fingers ever so slightly so you don't wind up with webbing. 3) Be careful of your eyebrows and hair if you are like me and have blonde ones! Pros:*Decent Smell*Easy application for 1st timers with no streaks as long as you rub it all in*Beautiful BROWN color*Inexpensive*Easy to maintain*Dries quickly *Looks naturalCons:*White color makes it difficult to tell where you have already applied the lotion*Difficult product to find other than on a few websites, which concerns me that it may be taken off the market in the futureBottom Line:Get this product if you are curious about trying a self-tanner for the fist time and want an inexpensive, easy, beautiful, SUNLESS tan. For the first time in years, people aren't asking me if I'm ill simply because my skin is transparent, and I'm loving it!

                      I always used Bain de Soel and Loved it, then I couldn't find it anymore. I tried tan towels,which I liked but they were a little expensive. I've tried a lot of things and ended up looking like Tony the Tiger. My daughter bought this for me for a Mother's Day gift. I would have probably not have purchased it because of being a little of a "brand snob" but I'm so glad she did it's awesome. Just make sure you exfoliate, I dry brush bfore I shower.
                      Plus, I love the way it doesn't get all over your clothes when you sweat.
