Comments about Nivea Sun Kissed Radiance Gradual Tanner & Body Lotion, Medium to Dark, 13.5 fl oz:

This lotion has a nice smell when first applied. However, that telltale self-tanner smell develops as the skin starts tanning. By the end of the day, about 8 hours, it smelled just like any other self-tanning lotion. It's noticeable by others because when I sat down to dinner with some friends, someone said, "I smell fake bake!"

I recommend washing it off with soap and water after the color develops. The smell goes away after that. Also the lotion feels sticky and doesn't completely absorb. So washing makes the skin feel smoother and touchable.

The color develops gradually. I got a natural looking tan in 2 days. No streaking. No orange. Use about once a week to maintain color.

Despite the smell, I will continue to use this product until I find something better because of its natural looking results. I still wish someone would make a good self-tanner without the smell.

Comments about Nivea Sun Kissed Radiance Gradual Tanner & Body Lotion, Medium to Dark, 13.5 fl oz:

This was my first time personally using a self-tanner, but I'm very aware of my friends self-tanning disaster stories, so I was rather reluctant to use one in preparation for an upcoming wedding. Nivea's tanner provided excellent coverage and beautiful color, and left me without any unevenness, streaking or orange skin, and while I was careful not to brush up against any clothing while it was still tacky, I didn't have any staining on anything that I came into contact with. I was careful to properly exfoliate in the shower before applying, and wash my hands and under my nails thoroughly after the application. Initially, the aroma of the lotion was fine, but after the color began to develop (about 4 hours) there was a slight aroma, similar to toasty buttered popcorn. The smell disappeared after a shower the following morning, but the color remained. I applied it a second time two days later, and my skin became even more bronze, but no odd smell. With daily showers, I still had a nice, healthy-looking tan 2 weeks later. Maintaining a beautiful tan only requires a once-a-week application.

      Anyone who has used self tanning products knows that awful inherent smell that develops after a few hours. Not the case with this product. Very slight self tanning odor. Color develops to a true tan color. I buy this product in groups of 3 so I can have one in a locker at the gym and 2 at home. Have used it on my face too with great results. LOVE this stuff!
