    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.

      Cocoa butter added plus of tropical island smell. Takes a little longer to dry especially in triple digit weather even indoors, but not sticky. Use gloves to apply evenly. Expensive brands cannot compare to Palmers!

          This is my favorite sunless tanner ever. It is inexpensive, great smelling (for a tanner, which usually have a strange odor)and I love the shade it imparts - not Oompa Loompa Orange, but a nice bronze. Creats an even tan, provides SPF protection and adds an instant bronze. My favorite!

                I love the bronzer in this product- makes it easy to see where it has been applied. The color is very natural for me- got many compliments on it at work.

                      It is still orange! I read the reviews and thought this would be a better product than it is. Doesn't stink like the others but still has that orange glow of fake.
                      Could use it to even out the tan or on the legs when it is not hot or humid as it does get sticky and streaky but not on the face.
                      Was supossed to be a buy one get one 1/2 off but it never went threw the basket. I won't shop here again.

                      I liked the color and it doesn't streak. It does feel really sticky but it smells like chocolate. I recommend applying a body cream to hands, feet and ankles before applying the tanning lotion. This will prevent staining.

                            This was listed under the green and natural section, but it is full of parabens. I'll still use it up and it's okay, but there are plenty of other options out there.
