REVIEW: Let's face it, I'm a self tanner hoarder. LOL. I LOVE LOVE self tanner and I'm always WILLING to try new products. I was very impressed with this self tanner and it will be added to my collection to keep. 

Check out the before and after pictures. The tanner was only on for ten minutes when I took the photos!! 



  • Absorbs quickly and dries fast
  • Doesn't stain your clothes
  • Doesn't streak
  • Doesn't turn you orange
  • Gives a nice golden, natural tan
  • does not dry your skin out
  • does not have the self tanner odor

  • I hated the spray pump. It kept getting clogged.(I was able to cut part of the dip tube and it worked then)

I think this is a great self tanner and I will definitely purchase more after I use up my bottle.

  1. I love this! I will have to check it out. My friend uses St. Tropez and loves it. I haven't dabbled into spray tan too much but I probably should so I don't ruin my skin from UV tanning!
