After one shower I was still tan, but after the second day and second shower, my tan was gone.
The immediate color will wash off (it's like a 2 part cream, 1 part gives immediate bronze to look good and let you know where you have missed and the 2nd part has a chemical reaction with your skin for longer term color). That part won't wash off but more "fade off".
No the tan does not wash off in the shower. You should still reapply every few days to keep the color nice and intense.

Kinda......but that is a good thing in a way too. Like you can correct the color more than a more intense self tanner. The gel is bronze when you put it on so you dont have to wait 5 hours for some color, you get it right away. But yeah, after like 2 days I find I need a re-do......

The temporary tint it gives you intially (the color straight out of the tube that helps you see where you're applying it) will wash off in the shower, but the color that develops as a result of chemical reactions with your skin wont wash off for a couple showers unless you exfoliate. If you want the color to last, dont exfoliate for as long as you want the color to stay. After you shower, you appear slightly lighter because before, you were seeing the developed color under the tint that just got washed away. To intensify the developed color, reapply another coat after your shower.

This is not a bronzer, which would wash off completely in the shower, but rather a self tanner, which will fade gradually over 4-5 days. For best results, please follow the directions below:
-For best results, exfoliate before applying self tanner.
-Start with clean, dry skin.
-Apply a generous amount of lotion and smooth evenly on to skin.
-Massage with both hands until absorbed.
-Use sparingly around elbows, knees, and ankles.
-Wash hands thoroughly after use.
-Tanning effect will begin within an hour and continue to darken within 4 hours.
-May be reapplied for more intense color.
