As a fair skinned, red head, I've used sunless tanners religiously for the last 15 years. I recently decided to try to go paraben free and was skeptical about this sunless tanner as I couldn't find it in stores anywhere. Boy was I wrong! This sunless tanner is very easy to apply and is very forgiving. I never saw any streaks and it faded relatively easily. Since I'm fair, the color that it gave me was perfect. I'm not sure how it would turn out on someone with a darker complexion. You should give this product a try. I recently ordered several more bottles, but they're on back order. I do hope that it's back in stock SOON!!!!!

i had used a previous brand of sunless tanner but didn't like it becuase of the lingering odor it left. i switched to this brand because the list of ingredients, i felt, were more 'natural'. at first the lotion had a pleasing odor, but after an hour or so, the smell was so overwhelming i had a headache. if i was near a shower or had another way of washing my body, i would have. if you don't have sensitivity to chemical smells, this will work great. however, if you do, beware.

    Comments about Nature's Gate Sunless Tanner, Self Tanning Lotion, 4 fl oz:

    First of all, I love this product's low EWG rating and Nature's Gate is a great cruelty-free brand. I'm fine with the odd smell/lack of fragrance in the formula and my sensitive skin so far has tolerated this lotion very well. Now, I am no slouch at applying self-tanner--I know what I'm doing. I exfoliated first, applied in short, quick strokes, and applied very sparingly around elbows, knees, ankles, etc. But I woke up this morning to streaky, splotchy color all over my legs and arms. Not great. The areas that aren't streaky have a nice, very subtle tan. I'll keep trying, since I love this company and their commitment to less toxic products.

        Comments about Nature's Gate Sunless Tanner, Self Tanning Lotion, 4 fl oz:

        This is a good self-tanner if you are looking for a natural glow, which is exactly what I desired. I have applied with no streaks or orange color. It develops a bit slower than other products I have tried. Others have mentioned the smell but it smells exactly like every self-tanning product I have used. I highly recommend applying it before bed to help with the scent issue.

        Comments about Nature's Gate Sunless Tanner, Self Tanning Lotion, 4 fl oz:

        I am very fair and can't/won't try to tan. My goal is to not have legs that glow in the dark. I was excited to try this as other self tanners were full of chemicals and had a very bad tanning smell. This was very natural. The tan itself was OK - it is a light tan. However, it has that same terrible tanning smell. If you don't have a sensitive sense of smell, this is the best self tanner, health-wise.

          I am very skeptical about sunless tanners. Living in Florida, people expect you to be ultra tanned all year long. Had an event to attend and didn't want stares so thought I would try this. SO simple to apply and just a hint of a fruity smell. Dried quickly. After a few hours, I looked like I had spent all weekend suntanning. Definitely recommend this!

            Comments about Nature's Gate Sunless Tanner, Self Tanning Lotion, 4 fl oz:

            This is my first purchase of this product/brand. I don't normally use tanning lotion. Just on occasions, I go to a tanning salon. My skin can be sensitive.

            So the tube was smaller than I expected (I guess I didn't look at its description thoroughly) so I definitely won't use it on my body, just my face, or else I'm afraid it will run out quickly.

            I was afraid to use it on my face because my face gets clogged very easily and super quickly (like 1-2 days later) even from oil-free products. I used it at night so it stays on my face overnight, and the next day, everyone noticed that my face looked tanned.

            I think the tan is even. I have been using it every day (it's been 4 days now), and still no sign of pimples. No side-effect. No redness. I mix it now with my moisturizer and apply it every night.

              I bought this when my usual origins self tanner was out of stock. I only use cruelty free and this one had good reviews. I am very happy with this one I actually like it better than origins. There is almost no smell, it goes on easily an dries super fast. I use it everyday and it creates a really nice natural looking tan. I constantly get compliments on my color. My only complaint is it doesn't work well on feet. It looks blotchy and bad. I didn't use it on my face so I can't recommend it there.

                the ones I've used before are a more subtle change, this makes you markedly tanner the next day. I am glad I didn't use it on my face right away. Be sure to wash hands after applying.

                      The best thing about this product is -- it works and doesn't look fake or orangy! Trust me, I am blindingly white (scots-irish) and this stuff works well and makes me look like I actually have a pulse. Take care to apply evenly. Works overnight. The smell is light and not offensive.
