After making the product dry which only takes about 5 minutes or less, I usually apply my day cream right after and my makeup after my cream application, following my usual makeup routine! I love it - it works amazing!!

I'd wait at least 20 minutes for it to dry. There's definitely a self-tanning process that occurs and I wouldn't want to risk it reacting with another product.

Yes you can, that is what I have been doing. I would actually recommend wearing makeup on top of it because it gives off orangy tones.

Yes but wait about 20minutes and if you can try to apply when you don't have to put your make-up on right away. Maybe apply then do your hair and then your make-up. This is what I have found for best results.

I let it set for a few min as you should with all types of creams or liquids you use on your face.

I have done exactly what you asked. Cleansed my face, put my facial St Tropez on waited a few minutes & the put a little SPF on and put my make up on & I was good to go! I actually looked even better and tanner throughout the day. When you use a quality product like St Tropez, you can use day and or night. I think they claim that only 1 minute is needed for drying time, and as you know it DOESNT SMELL. I love that stuff! Give it a try, I also use during the day too!

After it dries (20 mins) I use a moisturizer with sunscreen or sometimes Philosophy's "Here Comes the Sun" suncreen if I'm going to be in direct sun.

I wouldn't because it could change the effectiveness of the tan.

I would definitely not recommend putting this on during the day. Unless you're okay with the typical ''burnt'' self tanner scent..

It has been my experience that most bronzers can be mixed with a SPF lotion. Try mixing 2 parts bronzer to 1 part moisturizer and then applying it to your face. The result might be a hair lighter than the bronzer's intended color, but you can always build the color with a powder bronzer sweep of color. This also helps keep the color looking believable. Good luck!

The gradual tan is not really designed for the face. However the bronzer is especially formulated for the face. Your face has a much more sensitive skin. I use both of these products. I have used the gradual tan on my face as well, but it didnt do me what I was wanting when it came to my face like a glowing bronzer did. The bronnzer brightens the face with a healthy glow.

This lotion gives you instant results, the cream is a rich brown, no streaking, no smell, works wonderful. Considering the prices, i wouldn't want to gradually get tan....too pricey. The immediate results DO NOT make you orange and it dries in 1 minute. Wear during the day or at night!
