I have been using sunless tanners for over 20 years beginning with Estee Lauder. I have used foams, lotions and sprays. I recently had a personal spray tan where a person actually sprayed a sugar product on me. I paid a total of $60 to have the proceedure done on 2 consecutive days, and was disappointed. I get better results using the micromist from Neutrogena. Here are some helpful hints. Use the product at night before you go to bed. Do not shower or shave before hand. Shaving will create the little dots effect. Always rub the product in and use a hairdyrer to speed drying time. After one hour, reapply then go to bed. It is best not to have plans the next day in case you need to do some touch-ups. Be very careful around your feet, ankles and nails. Press your foot onto a stool and try to simulate where the sun actually hits your foot taking care around excessively dry areas like your heels and between your toes. I wouldn't plan on wearing flip flops or sandals until you perfect this area. After you have rubbed the product in wash your hands with soapy water being careful to only get your hands wet, not your arm. Then dry hands thoroughtly and spray the tops of your hands lightly, rubbing the backs of them together gently. Try not to breathe in the product and walk out of the room frequently. For the price I do recommend this product. With some practice and patience you should achieve great results.

I would not reccomend buying this product unless you are an expert at applying self-tanners. Though it does give your skin nice color, it leaves your skin streaky and blotchy. It also takes a while for it to completly settle and absorb into your skin. Above all, I would not recomend this product for anyone who has never used a self tanning product before.

Comments about Neutrogena MicroMist Tanning, Sunless Spray, Deep, 5.3 oz:

I bought three cans of this stuff from drugstore.com back in 2006. I used about two of the cans and the third one ended up under my sink for 5 years. I finally pulled it out last week and did a small test area on my arm to see if it would still work okay. It works exactly the same. I like this stuff because It does give me a natural darker color. As long as I don't coat the stuff on me, it dries pretty fast. It doesn't smell bad but it doesn't smell good. I definitely would recommend this product in dark for anyone. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it smelled better like fruity and if I did coat it on, I wish it would dry quicker.

Comments about Neutrogena MicroMist Tanning, Sunless Spray, Deep, 5.3 oz:

I actually use this product year round...yes, I am a pale face! I think the results are much more even than a lotion tan, and certainly easier and quicker to apply. I do not think the results are as good as a professional spray tan...but then I haven't sprayed myself for as long a duration in one application as the professionals do. I find it necessary to moisturize my skin more becuase I think it is a tad drying. I find a better result than the many, many other products I have tried. Caveat: I just moved to a home with a light, cream colored carpet in the bathroom...it now has a tan too!

    Comments about Neutrogena MicroMist Tanning, Sunless Spray, Deep, 5.3 oz:

    I like to use this spray in the winter for my face/neck area. It's really easy to use - I usually apply after I wash my face at night, and the next day, I have a nice glow. It has a slight odor, but nothing too overwhelming. I definitely recommend it!

      Have used this product on my legs and arms along with one other tanning lotion and it seems to be an easy "touch-up". However, even spraying must be done. I avoid the knees and elbows. Very easy and non messy.

        I am a cancer survivor who had plenty of radiation so I try to not tan like I used to - so this is perfect! Very natural looking and almost always very even color. I like that I can even spray my back and shoulders and get good even color! Love it!

          Works the best when you exfoliate the first day of use and don't use any lotion that day, then apply again 2nd day in a row. Add again the next day until desired color. Once you've achieved your desired color, reapply every 2 days or so, remembering to exfoliate approx. once a week.
          I love the golden hue that the "deep" color achieves; matches my real tan.

          Comments about Neutrogena MicroMist Tanning, Sunless Spray, Deep, 5.3 oz:

          I have been self-tanning forever_ 20+ yrs. I've pretty much tried them all and this is just about the best. Gives a soft tanning effect initially and then develops into a deep true tan color in a couple hours. I like that it gives a full tan and not a "starter" tan which must be reapplied to develop full color. I don't want a 'hint' of color! I want bare legs color with the 1st application and this one does it. I am blonde and light skinned and it covers my ghostly legs very well! _ Smell similar to most self tanning products which I've come to accept_ the benefit is worth it.

            i use this product all the time. i'm pretty light skinned and have tried #2 and #3. i didnt really see much result with #2. #3 def. works!! it goes on evenly if you spray it evenly. b/c you see results pretty quickly (i use it at night and then sleep with it on) if you miss a spot it will show up. only use it 2-3 times in a row or else you might start looking orange. great product to add a little color quickly and without spending a lot of $.

              I use this in the am after my shower. I shave then dry off. I spray evenly in a circular motion all around my body. I am very careful around my ankles/heels. Spray lightly there. You need to use more of a mist rather than a spray. You can't have the can real close to your skin or you will get wet spots. Once you get the hang of this it is real easy. I use the blow dryer and dry my skin quickly. I learned this from getting air brush tans. Dries quickly, no odor, nice color. I am very pale and I use the deep color which gives me a nice natural tan color.

              Comments about Neutrogena MicroMist Tanning, Sunless Spray, Deep, 5.3 oz:

              I can't believe that some people don't love this product. I have tried soooo many different self tanners. My favorite results come from St. Tropez tinted self-tanning lotion, but it requires you to sit around for 6-8 hours covered in mud-like lotion in order for it to work. This mist is so much easier. I've been putting it on a couple times a day and look like I've spent a couple days at the beach. Definitely not a deep, dark tan, but more of a sun-kissed glow. A lot better than my normal white skin. I don't even put that much care into the process. After I shower in the morning, I dry off, then step back into the shower and apply this all over -- even on my face. If I feel like I didn't get enough, I just go back over the area. I know some people rub it in, but I haven't done that. After a few minutes (5 or less), I get dressed. Sure, the smell of all that mist is like spraying hairspray continually for a minute or so, but it goes away quickly. I used to go to the tanning bed year-round, a few times week. Now that I'm older and wiser, I'd never use the tanning bed, but I'm looking forward to being able to "glow" all year round again...this time, safely! Some tips: don't directly spray your feet, ankles, or hands. Instead, hold the can further away than you do for the rest of your body -- about 24" or so. Then just mist "around" that area, in a very fast sweep. If you try to spray these areas just like the rest of your body, you'll get horrible results. Same thing with the face.
