This particular line of tanners provides a very subtle color. Naturally I'm extremely pale (to the point where I cannot find any foundation to match my natural skin tone. The lightest shade is always too dark on me).

As long as you blend, this line provides a hint of color without looking too garish. You won't look super tan, but will have a healthy glow.

it depends what type are you, for very light skin everything will be to dark, it looks like sun kissed, if you want darker you can always apply another coat, but its nicely melting into your skin and I wasn't able( ever) do too dark

It does come out a bit unnatural the first day. However I'd still recommend you buying it. I have fair skin and what I do is I mix it with some of my daily moisturizer and that gives me a less dramatic result. It does made acne scares blend in nicely and evens out skin tone. I dont even use foundation anymore. If you're unsure I suggest you to try it beginning of the weekend or when you don't have to show yourself juuuust in case you're not happy with the result! It does fade every day and looks more and more natural though.

I prefer to use moisturizer before - it helps the tanner go on smoothly and possibly dilutes it a teeny bit so you don't have a dramatic effect right away.

It gives a nice brown color, so you may need to get a new foundation color. I would not use it under moisturizer, as it needs time to set and develop on the skin. It does dry right away, but if you add moisturizer too soon on top you will just re-wet it and create thin spots or streaks in the tanner. I use it on clean skin before bed 1-2 times per week, in the morning it has developed and you can then use serum, moisturizer, etc. The color seems to last well by only applying 1-2x per week.

I also use med-beige foundation but found this tanner gave a nice brown tan so my foundation no longer matched. I would not use it under moisturizer, as it needs time to set and develop on the skin. It does dry right away, but if you add moisturizer too soon on top you will just re-wet it and create thin spots or streaks in the tanner.

You may want to go lighter with your foundation or just use some translucent powder as your skin will have a nice even bronze glow to it. I find I need less foundation when I use this. It's very natural-looking.

I have sensitive porcelain skin prone to breakouts but I didn't get any reaction from this. I think bare minerals in general are good for people like us! Ask for a trial before buying if you're unsure! Good luck!

Moisturiser/serum/face oil before (but use less than usual because this tanner is a moisturising product) then eye cream after so you don't rub it into your face. But don't but the tanner around your eye area. Hope this helps

I do. I put the tanner on, wait a half hour or so, then add my eye cream and moisturizer. Works great!

Can I use this under my makeup?
I mean without waiting a few hours and washing it off. Can I just put some on right before my makeup and head out the door or would that make my face look muddy?

This stuff sets/absorbes quicker than any face tanner I've ever used, but I still think if you used a powder over it, it would not be smooth and would be spotty, because you are putting dry over a tacky feel. If you were using a foundation over it, then I think it would work fine if you blend it well.
