This works best if you exfoliate well before using. I then put a cream on my hands , elbows , knees and ankle before starting the apply this. I wipe it on and try and get it as even as I can but don't rub it in. If using a mitt or plastic gloves to apply no worries but if using bare hands then I use my bodyscrub to rub my palms and between my fingers thoroughly jut in case washing is not enough.Don't wear tight clothes straight away - let it dry otherwise you will get rubs from clothe. I also wear a black bra and knickers so that any staining from the cream wont show - also I don't wear anything white/light on top either on the day I apply it. I find it give a nice natural looking tan that lasts a week or so without a top up.

Lovely scent, Good sized bottle. Nice easy to use flip cap.
Weakest points
Was difficult to apply as the product is quite thin in texture. Very patchy on drier areas so make sure you moisturise these first!. Biscuit smell the next day which lasted a while!
Summary
I would not recommend this product as there are similar products that are far superior e.g. Dove. I used the "deep sun kissed' shade as I have dark hair and a fairly olive skin and I actually found this too dark for me (maybe because it was patchy in areas especially my hands and between fingers even though i scrubbed them afterwards!) The initial fragrance was lovely, however I was disappointed that once again I had that biscuit smell as my skin got warmer in bed!

Strongest points
Easy to use, nice gradual tan
Weakest points
Scent and patchyness when wearing off
Summary
I have no idea why tanners have to have that strange biscuit smell but this is another that the next day you have that scent again.
It did give a nice gradual tan but my gosh, it took a while to get rid of that smell.
Skin did not look orange, I had a really nice brown tan that looked real.
Did not get patchy until it was wearing off.

This is certainly not the worst self tan I have used by a long shot. The bottle is attractive and oval shaped with a practical easy dispense flip top lid. The tanner is a white cream medium consistency that absorbs well into the skin without residue. I always prefer a tinted tanner so you can check you have applied it properly but this one you have to pay a little more attention. The fragrance is not of course perfect, not many self tanners are but I found the fragrance quite fruity?? It is certainly not overpowering and bearable for a self tanner. After one coat on my olive skin it gave a good natural colour (I used the dark formula) but as with many tanners if you build without the proper care it can become streaky or patchy. If you exfoliate first and then use a good moisturiser this should all but eliminate the problems.
The tan lasts well and does not look orange and my skin did not dry excessively form this product. All in all not a bad self tanner and worth the pennies for a mid range buy

Gave a light tan unlike other tanning products that make me orange. Felt sheer and gradually developed into a tan.
Weakest points
biscuity smell
Summary
Great product as it is cheap to buy and good to apply pre-holiday or to top up a tan. Gives a light glow instead of an instant colour.
