    I'm pale. No way around the fact that my skin doesn't tan well in the sun. I've come to rely on sunless tanners. I've used a few different brands, but haven't been satisfied. Not only do they smell bad, but they rub off on my clothing, they talk forever to build, and then disappear quickly. I have been quite pleased with this brand. With just one application, I see instant results. And, after 2-3 applications, the results really last. Application is easy as well, since the lotion is tinted, you can see exactly where it's going and can ensure you are rubbing it in properly. On top of it all, the odor of the lotion isn't offensive like other brands. It actually reminds me of chocolate.

    I've also learned a trick that if you put body lotion on elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles before applying a sunless tanner/bronzer, the lotion is absorbed more evenly. No weird orange glows.

    If you aren't satisfied with your current sunless tanner, I highly recommend you give this brand a try.

    I bought this because it combined tanning and sunblock. It smells okay, but doesn't rub in. For some reason made me sweat right after my shower, and it all came off-- onto my clothes. I have been using sunless tanning products for YEARS and never has a product stained my clothes so badly. I threw it out.

    Comments about Palmer's Sunless Tanner & Instant Bronzer SPF 15, 5.25 oz:

    This self tanner is great....you get instant color (very subtle) and when it does develop, it is a very natural look. It also has sunscreen. I have had so many people tell me that my "tan" looked great not ever thinking it was a self-tanner. No need to use it every day and you still may want to use a regular self tanner w/o bronzer in it for those times you don't want the extra color.

          I love this stuff. I use it every other day for moisturizer, bronzer and the self-tanner. I love the light chocolate smell and it also has the spf in it which is awsome. The only thing I don't like about this product is that is does and can stain your feet around your toes and the sides of your feet. It stained my palms really bad even with me washing my hands immediatley after applying it. Other thank that, I get a lot of compliments on my tan and once again, I love the smell. It definetly doesn't have that nasty chemical smell that most self tanners have.

          Comments about Palmer's Sunless Tanner & Instant Bronzer SPF 15, 5.25 oz:

          I really enjoy the creamy, chocolately smell of this self-tanner! Ordinarily I cannot stand the odor from self-tanners, so It's great to have one that's like using a pleasant-smelling moisturizer. I really like the texture, and smooth effects from this lotion. It dries quickly, and it definitely adds depth and some color. It's not really "bronze" though. I think its color may be more noticeable and "tan-looking" on fair skin tones. On my medium/olive skin it's more of a peachy-brightener. However, I think it looks great and I will continue to use this. I am happily surprised that this cheap product is such a good one! Yay for Palmer's!

            Comments about Palmer's Sunless Tanner & Instant Bronzer SPF 15, 5.25 oz:

            it's next to impossible to find a bronzer, tanner and Spf protection in one item. This one is really good. it didn't specify whether it is like the Loreal Sublime that gives you a tan (uneven) in 6 hours, or like the Jergens and Neutragena that do a gradual over a weeks time.... it is a combo of both. The bronzer gives an instant glowing subtle tan. Then the effects just fade a little when you shower, leaving a subtle tan. It has the LEAST offensive odor than any other product (and I have tried them ALL). After application I scrub my hands w/ soap and a nail brush, because it can stain your hands. And don't wear white or anything pale that you love, on the day you apply. I use it 3x/week and I look like I have been outside in the sun for a few weeks.

                I'm quite impressed with this product. I HATE the self-tanner smell, and this one is very minimal. Very moisturizing, and the color is great. Will definately buy this again!

                  My favorite self tanner was Neutrogena Instant Bronze, but I can't find it anywhere now. I tried this sunless tanner after looking at the reviews. I was not disappointed! It gives a great color and stays on fairly well. This is my new favorite sunless tanner and I highly recommend it if you want a self tanner with bronzer.

                    I have tried almost every self-tanner out there and this one is by far the best. For the record, they ALL smell funky, because they all use the same active ingredient. Likewise, I haven't found one that doesn't rub off on your clothes a little bit either. This one has a nice tint, so you look slightly tanner right away, and after you shower the color is perfectly golden. As with any tanner, you have to be careful around wrists, ankles and feet, but the tint helps you do this. The fact that it has a built-in SPF is a nice bonus, too. Great product at a great price--I buy it three at a time!

                    I absolutely LOVE this product and will buy it again. I would give Palmers a higher rating than a 5 star if possible!!!! It smells very nice and pleasant. This color blends naturally as you use it. I have never, ever found such a GREAT self-tanning product for this lower price that does ALL THESE GREAT THINGS. A BIG PLUS is that it has SPF 15. What more could you want.#
