This product is more of a moisturizer than a tanner so you won't get an immediate result. It builds over several days. It's very natural looking. You also get more for your money, my first bottle lasted several months. I've never had streaks from it and I usually just put it on very quickly after the shower. It does need a few minutes to dry and I don't recommend using it on the same day you are wearing something white (use it building up to that). I used it for two weeks prior to my wedding and I got tons of comments on my tan (and nothing was left on the inside of my dress). My skin is naturally medium color so I can't say how it would work on very fair skinned people.

I'm giving this a mediocre review, but my lack of luck with this product may be because my skin is very pale. Also, all skin products react differently with different skin types. But here goes...

It goes on smoothly, absorbs nicely, and doesn't rub off on my clothes or sheets. The smell is alright, a bit strong for my taste, and you can still smell the tanning chemicals beyond the delicious chocolate smell. That's why I said it smells bad. It's a little too dark for my skin tone, I like a very light tan. At first I thought it went on pretty smoothly, but after a while I noticed that when I straighten my arms, the joint behind my elbow was discolored, as if when I had bent my arm, the lotion moved. Anyway behind my elbow there was a big round white spot.

      Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze Body Lotion, 8.5 fl oz:

      This product would be great if not for the smell/fragrance. If you are ok with REEKING like a fudge factory then you might like the fragrance; it is very strong and I could still smell it even hours after applying. The lotion is nice and rich, feels great on the skin and delivers a nice, light, gradual tan. I've never used Palmers products before so I do not know if this fragrance is in everything or just this lotion but I wish they would make an unscented version.

        Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze Body Lotion, 8.5 fl oz:

        Out of all the gradual self tanner creams out there, this is by far the best. When first applied it has sort of an artificial chocolate smell. Something you would smell from a chocolate scented candle, or body cream. The smell doesn't last long. No lingering self tanner smell which is a big pro. Even though it's a gradual tanner I noticed a subtle difference hours later. Being fair skinned, this cream made me confident to wear a dress without any hosery. I apply it after I shower about 4days a week This cream does a great job at moisturizing as well. A must in my beauty regimen.

        So Very Pleased

            Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze Body Lotion, 8.5 fl oz:

            This is a really good tanner of a type I haven't been able to find the past two or three years. It can be applied overnight without fear of turning too dark or permanently staining my sheets. It doesn't have any nasty brown tint nor sparkly stuff in it. It rubs in very easily and it seems to me I don't have to use as much of it as with most other products. I am very light skinned and always had to use tanners classified as "dark" to get any color. This tanner is dark enough--and darker than other "buildable" tanners. I am reasonably pleased with the color, although if someone has very ruddy skintone, it might look just a tad orange on you. All tanners smell bad, and other reviewers have said they thought the scent was too much, but based on my eons of self-tanning experience this scent is a winner. It's not drying my skin out (amazing)! Basically, I find this tanner to be extremely reliable. I know I can put it on and look good (and smell okay) in the morning, without all the other bother of the currently "improved" tinted, sparkly, perfumy, stainy, generally weird other tanners out there. Reliable wins the day!

            Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze Body Lotion, 8.5 fl oz:

            For the past 3 years, my skin has been sensitive to added fragrance; if I use a body-wash or lotion with added fragrance, my skin will often develop severe itching and hives.

            Self-tanners of all varieties tend to have added fragrance. As a result, I have not "experimented" very much with gradual self-tanners. I have tried instant self-tanners before (on my theory that applying a fragranced body care product once a week is better than something similarly fragranced that must be applied every other day); they would usually turn me oompa-loompa orange, and inflame my skin, to boot.

            Palmer's Natural Bronze Body Lotion is the first lotion-with-added-fragrance that I've been able to use in 3 years. It does not give me hives at all. Upon initial application, it'll sometimes cause small areas of my skin to itch veeery slightly; however, whatever minor itch that occurs is easily soothed with hydrocortisone cream.

            And the color! I'm half-Asian with a light gold complexion (fairly golden, in BE terms) and it deepens my skin to a natural-looking medium gold--which is just enough to disguise veins and discolorations on my body.

              gives a great real looking tan. covers well, develops fast. apply every day or every other day to keep it up. but is long lasting. no streaks, no bad smell. soft moisterized skin & great color. I am very fair skinned and to get tan legs in a day or 2 is great. same with neck, chest & arms.

                  I love this tanner. I've never had any streaking with it, but I do take a damp cloth and lightly rub my knees where the skin tends to absorb a little more. I like the smell. I use it about every other day. I use it on my legs, which don't get that much sun, and the color perfectly matches my arms, which are pretty tan on their own. I gave a friend the remainder of a bottle to try and she loves it, and now has recommended it to a friend of hers, who also loves it! And I LOVE no animal testing!

                    Noticed instant color the next day. Was a little streaky but not too bad. There wasnt an unpleasant aftersmell either like some self tanners give you. Only lasted about two days. I think it works fine for this price.
