This is a great mousse to wear during the day. It adds a natural looking shimmer that you really need to get close to in order to see the gold flecks. For the most part it gives your body a very natural glow. It's not tacky in the least.

I've used it during the day and it's great, but I guess it depends on what is too sparkly for you. I wouldn't say put it everywhere, just the places you'd like a highlight of color.

I don't think it's too sparkly for day but I use it more for occasions where I'm going out with friends (day or night) than for day-to-day use. That mostly has to do with the cost of the product. I think it would be too much shimmer for an office environment though.

I have mixed this with a little moisturizer to tone it down for the daytime but it will have a tendency to transfer a little more. It is very shimmery in sunlight and since it's a mousse it dries quickly making it harder to apply a 'light' coat. It's great to use when my self tanner starts wearing off on my legs a little to even out the color.

it can definitely be worn in the day. The sun gives it a glow. If you end up adding too much to one place just dust a little matte powder over it

You could but there's better facial bronzers out there. I don't think this one is oil free, so you'd risk a breakout.

Yes, I have extremely fair skin and I use this on my face. I would use MUCH less than I do on my body. I usually put a dime size amount on my palm and use my fingers to blend it into my face, I usually do that about 3 times to reach every area. If you want to thin it out you can mix it with a little face moisturizer. Don't forget to wash your face before bed with this on.

If you don't mind a fairly substantial sheen, you could use this on your face. For me, at an older age, I like my face more matte, so if I were to use it on my face it would probably be on my cheekbones only.

I tried this product on my face and it didn't turn out all that great. I used it after my moisturizer and added a little powder bronzer over it and it looked uneven and ruddy. I have medium/olive skin but maybe it would work better on your tone. Maybe it would be better putting it under moisturizer I'm not sure. I use it just on my legs, chest and shoulders where I want an extra highlight of color.

I wouldn't. It might be a little dark unless thinned with lotion. It's a little too much shimmer for the face but great on the body. It dries quickly and can look a little metallic if too much is applied so I occasionally mix with moisturizer. The fragrance is a little strong. The Lorac TANTalizer lotion has a softer fragrance(-spicy vanilla)

Question
How many uses can you get out of a single bottle?
I noticed the bottle is only 2.5 ounces... that's small enough to fit into a carry on for air travel... so does that provide enough product to use more than once? It seems like a waste of money to only be able to use it once.

There isn't much product in the can, but I get at least ten applications on my arms and legs out of this can. And if you don't use soap to wash it off, it is water resistant, so I get two days of use out of one application. I order online through ebates.com, and then click on the Sephora link. That way I can get a small rebate check every time I order this product. It does irk me to pay $32 for this small can. If I could find a product that's as good as this product, any cheaper, I would stop buying this one. Lorac does have a lotion bronzer that has more product for the price, but it isn't water resistant so you have to reapply every day. I buy both products. Both Lorac Bronzers have a shimmer to them, which you can't really see during the evening hours, or indoor lighting, but if you get in the sun, you're going to look like you've gotten sprayed with glitter. You may like that, but I would like to look like I have a real tan without glitter. Still I can't find a better bronzer for the price. Fake bake has a bronzer with even less product in the bottle. It doesn't have glitter, though. It does look like a real tan. But it's too expensive for the amount of product inside and it isn't water resistant at all.

I've had this container of TANtalizer for a couple of weeks and have used it every day, or almost every day, and there's still a considerable amount left. What I've done to make it go further is to mix some mousse with a bit of water or some lotion. I like mixing it with water better - the finish is a bit more transluscent and not as tacky or sticky as when mixed with lotion.

It is a pretty small bottle and I run out of it sooner than I'd like, but I'd say that you could get about 5 to 7 "full body" (arms, legs, shoulders & chest) applications out of a single bottle. However, you'd probably run out sooner if you were applying it to wear a bathing suit rather just with your regular clothes. I really love this stuff but it does get kind of expensive because of the small amount in the bottle.

Question
does this work for people who skin that ranges light to dark but is actually olive? So, basically, most tanners make you look, well, bad?
hey
If it is important I have black hair, and Gold eyes, or very very light brown, hazel, depends who you ask.

I'm half french basque-half Spanish. I find now in northern New england I'm very light, still olive. And I miss my color. Even my spouse does. Home, with SPF, (ok, so it's hard to find higher than 15 sometimes, or 8) I was still me. My color. Here, I've heard this is good but, I'm jaded, I've tried so many products. So many self tanners are rotten, they go light/med/dark, but they don't take into account my actual tone. So, waste of money, and I look. BAD. Makes me want to lay out all day in the sun without my SPF but. Cancer. Wrinkles. Anyone sort of like me who has ideas? is this it? Or, what are good options?
thanks

O think this product will be fine for your skin tone. It isn't a self tanner. It washes off with soap and water. It is water resistant, so you can even shower if you don't use soap on the areas where you've applied the mousse. It has a shimmer to it, so in the sunshine you're going to look glittery. You can't detect the glitter indoors or after sunset outside.

This product is not a self tanner. Also it doesnt really make you look "tan." Its more of a luminizer than a bronzer. That being said, I LOVE this product, but its not the type of thing you want to put all over your body.... just places you want to highlight.

My understanding is that this product is not a self-tanner but a body bronzer. I have medium to medium light skin (not as dark as Italian but not really light either, and my arms, neck, and stomach are darker than my legs, for instance. I can't really tell how this would work on other skin shades, but I do know that it gives a beautiful finish. It's worth trying at Sephora because they have a money back guarantee.

I have olive skin and this works great but only on my body, not my face. I would highly recommend you try this in combination with Sephora brand SUN self tanner. That tanner is the best I've ever tried and I've tried a ton!! I love it on my face especially. The Lorac Glow is not a self tanner, as the color only lasts until you wash it off. I use this product on my legs (shins), shoulders and chest to add a dash of color that accentuates the self tanner I use under it. It has a good smell and the foam texture is easy to spread evenly onto skin. Good luck if you decide to use it!

I would say it's more of a bronzer than a self-tanner (although it does deposit color). I'm a fair-skinned African American and I use this for the glow it creates. This isn't like a self-tanner that comes out orange- this will give you a warm glow.

I have very fair skin and any other tanner/bronzer I've ever used has made me look awful, however TANtalizer is a totally different story. It seems to adjust to your skin to give you a natural glow. You should give this one a try because it has certainly renewed my hope in getting a bronzed glow (cancer-free of course) :)

What's the difference between Lorac's Award Show Glow and Lorac's Body Bronzing Luminizer?
The other product I'm referencing can be found here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P144241&categoryId=B70

I visited my local Sephora to compare the two products but they only had the Luminizer in stock and the SAs had never even heard of Award Show Glow. Basically, I'm looking for some feedback from someone who has tried both products. For reference, I'm tan/olive, with dry skin. Which bronzer would you recommend?

The award show glow is a mousse and the other Lorac bronzer is a lotion. The mousse is water resistant so you can wear it for a couple of days if you don't use soap to wash it off. Not much product in the can of mousse, but at least you can get two wears out of it. The lotion has much more product in the tube, but is not very water resistant. Neither product withstands swimming pool water very well. Both spread well, both smell good, but different. Neither product shows any noticeable difference in smoothing or toning as the description states. It's just a bronzer with shimmer in it. Both are good products. I've tried many bronzers and you just can't beat these two. I just wish they would take the shimmer out of the products so they could produce a real tan look.

IMO, the Award Show Glow is not a bronzer. It's more like a primer + a touch of shimmer. I do LOVE it. I use it over St. Tropez Tanning Mousse but not on my face. Usually, I would avoid anything with shimmer but this product is perfect and makes my skin glow like a movie star. (Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a little but, I do really love this product.) I did try it alone and it's just okay on pale skin. Don't notice any firming.
