Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely terrible! I bought this thinking it would leave my skin with a nice sunkissed glow. NO! I did as the instructions said, shake well before use. I then began to spray my legs. I have never used such a watery and runny product. I have used many sunless tan sprays, and I expected this to be great product. I do NOT recommend this product to anyone. I had to instantly shower because it was so terrible. I gave this a 1 Star because I had to select something, although I would rather not give it any stars at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst tanner in the world Oh my gosh. I use self tanner for my job. So I know my stuff. This is the most streaky, leaky, grossest tanner ever. Usually I can apply it 1-2 hours before I go to work but this is making it so I have to miss my shift tonight because it won’t run properly it keeps running. I’ve NEVER had this problem with other tanners. I had to keep taking off the leaky parts and redo them. It’s awful. Seriously i don’t understand why this tanner is so AWFUL. I can’t express enough how upset I am that I bought this and how many problems it’s causing for me. By far the worst self tanner I’ve ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Glow! 1st time purchase, second option. I usually buy another brand but when I saw that it was sold out and this was priced at the same amount, I went ahead with this. Totally unaware of instant results! Mind blowing! Will buy again. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just read the directions I bought this product in early May. I am still I my 1st can. I use a glove to apply the product and rub it in. I do not spray it directly on the skin and apply alot to ensure it's not streaky. Let it sit overnight or 4 hours then wash, just water, the excess off. The tan last about a week untill I scrub it off or shave. I even use the product on my face without a breakout. The product does get on clothes untill you was the excess off of your body and the skin looks orange untill you was the excess off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Application Bought this yesterday to use for a wedding I have this Wednesday. I have to say that out of all the self tanners I have used this is the worst. It says to spray 10" away from skin, I sprayed about 2 feet away for a natural glow and it turned me into an oppaloompa. When I sprayed it on my body it did not stick but instead streamed down my arms and legs. So for the next few days call me a patchy oompaloompa unless I can scrub this orange goo off. Never will purchase this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden color I just purchased this. I work in a salon and I have to tell you that this for me is hands down THE BEST sunless I've used. It gives a beautiful natural golden tan. It really has no after smell and it's a must try! I've used a lot of sunless and tanning products and Australian gold still is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously the best ever I saw the lower reviews for this tanner so I had to add my review. Hopefully it will help! Ok I have used almost every self tanner and this is my absolute favorite. Here’s a quick rundown of my process... 1. Exfoliate A LOT in the shower. 2. I apply a sunless primer gel in the shower( the kind that corrects your ph before spray tans), let it sit for two minutes 3. After toweling off, I use my regular lotion all over ( Jergens 48 hr smooth) 4. I lounge around for maybe 20-30 minutes to cool off and let the lotion soak in. Sweating will be a big problem after tanner application, so I make sure to cool down completely. 5. I lay down an old sheet so I don’t make a mess. 6. I start at my feet, spray one leg at a time... right after I spray my leg, I use my tanning mitt to rub everything in really well. 7. I do the same for each body part 8. Once everything has a first coat, I spray some tanner straight onto the mitt and pat it into areas that need a bit more, like tan lines from natural sun, down the sides of each leg to contour a bit, etc. all you need to do is spritz some onto the mitt and pat it around in a circular motion. 9. Then I stand in front of a fan or under the ceiling fan until I’m totally dry. That’s it! Yes it’s a lot, but all the steps take a lot less time than scrubbing off a botched tan. This product fades so evenly I only have to do it once a week. For me, the color match is so close to my natural tan I use it to even out my color from my jawline down to my cleavage ( am I the only person with a neck that refuses to tan?!?) For reference, I do tan pretty dark and have yellow/olive skin tone. There’s no gross smell that lingers, and be prepared that the bronzer will rinse off the next time you shower. I love this stuff so much I will never buy another brand. Period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color! I purchased this last night, after using Tomas Sunless Tanning Spray. This product is wonderful! I sprayed it directly onto my legs and arms, rubbing into my skin with a mitt, and sprayed directly into the mitt for my face neck and chest. I am very happy that it doesn’t just wash away when showering and it’s super easy to build your color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bad application, good tan I bought this thinking it would be great since it was a spray. Boy was I wrong. It went everywhere. the best way to use this is to spray in another container and use a tanning mitt to apply. keep baby wipes handy to wipe the bottle off otherwise the run off will stain everything. I love the smell and the color it gives me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This product is phenomenal! It’s a great and easy application that takes little trial and error. It’s best to use with a self tanning mitt to get any spots that might be left over. It gives me great natural color and is very long-lasting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nicer Tan spray. Easy to use and goes on smooth. Good color on the first use. Blends with your skin tones very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for a quick tan I bought and used this today after showering. It was more watery than I had expected, but I had read the tips which say to rub it in for an even non streaky look. I sprayed my entire body (minus my face) and then rubbed it making sure I had no streaks. An hour or so later my feet looked a bit orange and streaky to I wiped them off with a wet towel and it came right off. I plan to shower with water only to get the excess off and make sure I'm 100% streak free.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Highly disappointed I loved the tanning lotions when I laid in the sun, so I figured this should be comparable, but it's not, followed the instructions, and I had runs all over, luckily I was in the tub I rinsed and soap quickly, then I tried another way, using latex gloves and applying to my arms only to see if it would work, it worked out well, but after 5 hours it was still slightly wet and sticky, no thank you. Only wish this was as good as the lotions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge disappointment I bought this to even out my tan due to my vitiligo. I sprayed a light coating and the tanning spray ran all over me! It was a huge sticky, runny mess! I was shocked at the outcome to the point of crying and embarrassment! I had to immediately start wiping the mess off me. I then had to go shower because i could not wipe it off fast enough. The color was an ugly orangey brown. More orange then brown. A huge disastrous disappointment. .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I am a constant airbrush tan in a can user. This is buy far the worst Ive used! I actually tried two different cans because i thought the first one was defective but no they literally just spit the product out randomly instead of spraying. It is also the most orange formula i have ever tried

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spray bronzer Terrible! I’ve used your spf spray with bronzer #4 and #8 for years and seems now it’s not available. I ordered 4 of the bronzer spray and I’m very disappointed. It’s way too dark. I tried getting it off before it dried on my skin and it didn’t remove easily or completely. Will never buy again. Will donate all 4 containers. When are you going to get the spf 4 or 8 spray with bronzer back?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful orange streaky mess I bought this a week ago decided to give it a try and it was instant regret; it was blotchy, and runny and super orange. I washed off in the shower immediately after

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy! Omg!!! I always self tan at home and buy the sprays or mouse. Walmart didnt have my usual so I saw this and tried it out. .. Such a bad idea! It is soooo messy. There will be spray all over your shower and bathroom. Then you can’t even clean it easily Bc you can’t get wet for hours. It doesn’t spray on nicely. It’s spaces big chunks of color which run down your arm, leg , whatever the case maybe. I rubbed it in then after... but it’s soo excessive that it makes you panic that you’ll have streaks and look horrible. You’re wet for a long time .. not just 60 seconds. Once it dries, it’s extremely sticky and the bronzer in it does not dry evenly... so you again freak out Bc it’s sooo blotchy. Once I washed it all off (the day after) the color wasn’t bad. However, I will never buy again due to the hassle and it being so messy. Pray you don’t start sweating too... that whole area of your body will start running again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Streaky and Runny! Bought this product about a week ago and finally had the time to use. I exfoliated and shaved the day before. My skin was clean and dry however trying to get this product to spray effectively was a pain. Uneven coverage and streams of runny products were the result. I am less than happy. It was so hard to find the correct distance. Can says 10" but that was too close.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gave me a rash and super dry skin!!! I was so excited to try this product but horrified when I applied it and saw how runny and streaky it was. Turned me completely orange. Hours later i developed a scaly rash on my neck and face. Days later and my face is peeling and dryer than ever and my neck still feels scaly. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super wet and runny I love the spay self tanners because they are supposed to dry quicker. Not this one!!! It runs down your body and get ALL OVER everything around you! Sprayed it while I was standing in the shower and the entire shower was orange. The color is good once you rub it in and it finally drys, takes hours!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFUL Worst self tanner I have ever used! I have used lotions, foams, sprays and wipes. Application was runny and did not apply. I immediately got in the shower to rinse it off my body. The color that did apply was the color of a Cheeto. I will be returning it tomorrow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy Awful. It ran everywhere and would not absorb into skin at all. Tried rubbing it in just for it to streak and still not dry. Not mention it went everywhere and took several towels to wipe up off the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Love this product!!! I do sometimes have to use a mit to get it evenly distributed but it gives me a beautiful glow tan. Other stuff leaves weird after residue and looks flaky and this doesn’t.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! If you’re not a pro at self tanning spray, then don’t even bother to try this. I looked orange, the application was uneven , starts running supers easily when applying etc. Want my money back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Streaky Mess This might be the worst spray tan I've ever used. It's a super runny, streaky mess that made my skin look even worse than before. Neutrogena spray tan works 10 times better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It’s very runny liquid It’s very running I was expecting something a little thicker I don’t think it spreads on my skin nicely. Not really sure if I will use again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super runny I had to immediately shower off because it was so runny and watery and was dripping everywhere and made such a mess

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Orange Runny Tornado I am an experienced self tanner and have tried every drug store tanning lotion/mouse/spray on the market. I bought this spray thinking the constant flow nozzle would be helpful applying alone. Very pleased by this attribute, I began to go trigger happy, starting with my legs and proceeding around my whole body. It appeared to have nice coverage, and I liked how I could see where the spray was hitting my body. With that being said, it also looks like my bathroom was hit by an orange tornado!!! Before I could freak out about my new shower curtain, I had a mudslide running down my legs and entrapping my feet from moving too fast. Mortified, I began using my bare hands to spread the hot chocolate all over my body. As I began to notice it drying, I decided to use all the towels in arms reach to make a path to the mirror. That is when I saw a patchy giraffe like figure staring back at me! I used a dry washcloth to “blot” these patches with more coverage.... So, here I am now - a waxed pumpkin drying under my fan hoping my bed will not look like I drunkenly ate a bag of Doritos in my sleep... Advice: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. However, if you have already bought the bottle, and cannot return for any reason, (or are on a time crunch and have no other options available) then dare to take on this product.... 1. Do it in a covered area or outside 2. Have a tanning glove/towels/mirror ready 3. Envision yourself as a tan goddess and hopefully your dream will come to fruition. Good LUCK.
