Wonderful for the price!...I must wear a minimum of 30SPF, it needs to be sweat & water proof so those tinted BB cream with a laughable SPF will not cut it and I am not a foundation person so my only option for not looking like the negative of a Dalmatian, is to try to fake a tan to camouflage my patchwork of skin colours

I loved the green...No icky tan smell...For the price, this is a decent self-tanner....It does last about 5-6 tans or so, but their drops are a much better deal and you don't have to worry about accidentally stepping in the spray and getting self-tanner feet, so although it's a good product, they already make a better one for my needs
