The mitt is soft...So easy to apply...And it's so worth the price....As much as I love this product it doesn't dry as fast as st. tropez nor does it give a nice dark glow like st. stropez does, im a natural red head and im very pale skin so it does give it a nice glow, however I usually apply this product before going to bed and shower in the morning so it only gives it like a shade darker from my skin tone.And if thats what you're looking for then go for it

THIS is a WINNER...This is the best...Worth the price....its a pretty good product the only thing is that it took a while for the tan to actually show had to reapply the product three days in the row however when the tan showed up it was very natural looking not orange at all and to my surprize there were absolutely no steaks and even though I only used it on my face and did not apply it on my neck it didnt look like I was wearing a mask A+ for that

Very easy to use...So easy to apply...I had really high hopes for this stuff considering a higher price tag usually means better results, but no....TIP: letting your tan fade all the way down and exfoliating will give a better result than tanning again before the prior tan has fully faded/been removed - layering this self tanner will result in patchy fading which is NOT cute TIP: you can use this to contour your face and body so when you're "natural" you still looked SNATCHED - be your own tan artist
