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 will occasionally use this tanner during the winter just to add a bit if color. This product has no cons. It is healthier than suntanning and tanning bed use, less expensive and you control the amount of color you want. The skin color lasts for weeks and never turns orange. Easy to apply

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

          I'm Scandinavian and it takes me forever to build a tan. After a few online vouchers for a spray tan, I decided to see if I could do it at home. I wanted to have bare legs in the summer without feeling ghostly. I apply it while standing in the shower because I don't want it to get on my bathroom floor. I also spray it on my face, which they don't reccommend, but I hold my breath and pinch my lips it. It gives a great color. The only thing is I'd wish it'd last a bit longer, but that's probably due to my exfoliating habits, not the product.

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

            This self-tanner dires very quickly and creates a nice color. I am able to use it quickly between bed and getting dressed or getting undressed and going to bed. I have had it turn a little orangy between the ladies after using it multiple times per day for a few days. Also, at that point, it did rub off and stain some clothes. I consider that user error and don't really blame the product. The directions say to use a steady stream 6" away from skin. I find that I am not meticulous enough to spray evenly at that close range. I tend to spray from farther away, rather rapidly to have it dry quickly and evenly. because I am using less product, it takes a while to develop color over time and I find that I look more natural - not overnight beachy tan. Although I live in San Diego, no one I know would believe that I spent the day sunning at the beach.

            Honestly, It's a Mystery! I can say the product did not streak, but I am not sure if it even worked? I could not tell a difference at all. Also it's smell is very strong even in a Highly ventalated asrea it makes you choke. So honestly a plus because there was no evidence of a bad sunless tanner leaving hideous streaks , but then again there is no evidence it even worked!

              This self-tanner is easy to use. It sprays evenly at any angle, dries pretty much immediately, and doesn't stink after application. I tend to accidentally breathe it in during use and sneeze, but that's my own problem. The instructions say to spray 6 inches from skin, but I have been using it more as a gradual tanner and spraying less thoroughly from 8 - 10 inches away. Doing this, I used up a can in about 2 weeks with application every 3 - 4 days. Also, it took me a while to figure this out: put an old towel down on the bathroom floor during use so you're not constantly walking on self-tan over-spray. You can't see it on the floor, but it turns your feet sticky and orange over time.

                I am very light skinned, I use this mainly on my legs, I see a lot of comments about streaking, I found a way to help with that, after you spray it on you, use your hands and gently rub the area you sprayed, I do this when I feel I have sprayed more on one area than another, just a little rub to blend a little, that prevents streaking and such. this gives me a very subtle color to my skin, as I do not ever tan , I always burn in the sun.

                  Ok before I start here is a little "about me":I live in Miami, I tan VERY WELL (I get really dark but am afraid of sun damage). The average spray tan in my area is $50 a pop - ouch. My skin is combination oily/dry, sensitive to chemicals and breaks out easily.I bought a LEVEL3 deep tan. It was easy to use. I couldn't reach my back so my bf did it for me. I let it dry (which was more like 10-15 mins) and went to bed without showering. The next day I noticed my skin was nicely tan - it was more golden than brown which is different than how I tan naturally but it still looked realistic and dark. I didn't notice any self tanner smell after I took a shower. In the natural light I noticed that I had missed some spots and had a streak or two. When I got home I sprayed on a second coat let it dry and the streaks and spots were gone. It looks really great. My skin gets dry from the alcohol so I really have to moisturize well when I get out of the shower (but that's fairly normal for me, as I mentioned I have problems with my skin)This product is easy for me to find ([$] @ the drug store [$] @ [@]). One bottle lasted me for 4 full body/face coverage. Some tips: Don't spray too close!!! It will run down your legs and streak. Also see if you can find someone to assist you for the hard to reach spots. Don't bend your joints for the first 15 mins to avoid having the tanner collect in the creases!
