It's not shimmery. It's sheer color...with a bit of shine! It's perfect. It hides flaws but doesn't cover like a thick opaque cream. The color is very brown. Not orange at all.

It doesn't need applying everyday. You could easily go 3 days without reapplying, but I would suggest exfoliating after that, because it will start to kind of flake off, but a light exfoliant will take it all off and you can reapply it.

YES- first spray on lower legs and upper thighs. Rub that in. Then spray lightly over the same areas plus feet. Rub all over legs(make sure you cover back of legs and knees) rub it in really well on feet. Last do knees. Just rub mitt over knees with what's on the mitt. don't spray them.

It has a subtle amount of color, however the more you apply the darker it gets.
answered 2 years, 3 months ago
melissabt
answer 2
It's too subtle for my taste, considering you really only get 2-3 applications out of one can and that cost you $15. The tan will last about 3 days. If you're constantly in a hurry, then the spray might be worth it to you because it does dry fast. I still don't let anything I wear touch it (unless I wear black near it), because it will rub off on fabrics even 3 hours after application.

Definitely build-able like a daily tanning lotion but the first applications will be darker since it is more concentrated. My husband is really light and he used it before the beach without looking like a Simpsons character.

answer 4
You will definitely notice that you look tan after one application. Then if you keep applying it every couple days you will see that it turns to a deeper shade. I'm very fair too, and I looked tan after the 1st application. It also probably depends on how much of the product you use. More will give a deeper tone.

Hello,

I would suggest not to moisturize right before using this product because, it may act as a barrier and the color will not develop correctly or evenly. You will be able to apply moisturizer after the self tanner has dried completely.

The best way to ensure an even application is to expholiate well and shave in the morning, after your shower use a light moisturizer and that evening apply your self tanner, let dry well before going to bed. In the morning shower to wash off the color guide and Voila! a perfect self tan :o)

I wouldn't moisturize because it may block the tanner from soaking in. Try holding the bottle farther away and use less, but do a couple of coats. A lot of product comes out pretty fast so you have to be quick with it.

I slather on lotion on my feet, knees, elbows, and wrists without rubbing it in, then spray away. I've always had a problem with my feet lookiing horrible, but this does the trick...after I spray then I rub the lotion in(make sure you wear gloves, or you can use a foundation brush too) This makes my whole body so perfectly even. And with this spray, its best to start with two light coats the first night, then continue to build the days after.

YES. I read many review tips on how to apply to the face, and I went with the "spray fingertips & rub on face" first time, then "spray a paper towel & rub onto face" for my 2nd tan. Both work great. My face is already darker than everything else (side effect of Retin A, I believe), so I put 2 coats on my body and 1 on my face. Everything looks perfect, natural, & even.

Can you apply it on the top of your hands?
I hate it when the self tanner stops at the wrist because you have to wash your hands after rubbing it in. Does it go on top of your hands without it looking obvious that it's a self-tanner? Or can you see the lines in between your fingers?

It does not leave streaks on your hands, but this product does not also give you a really dark orange tan. It leaves more of a glow and a natural looking tan. Very easy to apply due to the application being in a can that sprays and not a lotion you rub in.

best thing about a spray mist..... after I apply it to the rest of me, I wash my hands then mist the top of the hand and rub the tops of my hands together, making sure to rub the fingers together well too (tops and sides only). I did not notice any visible tan lines with this product.

It takes a little practice. When I applied the self tanner to the rest of my body, I used my hands to blend it in (on my legs, arms, etc). I washed my hands after as instructed. THEN I lightly misted the self tanner on the tops of my hands and let it dry. It worked well for me, although I didn't use a lot because you don't want your hands to get too dark or blotchy in between your fingers.

After applying to your hands you should take a wet towel and gently rub in between your fingers because that is where the self tanner usual gets stuck making it look orange and after applying the self tanner to your hands give in 15 minutes before washing you hands so it can soak in. Then your hands will have a nice glow!
