in love...Love it...I've been using the Dark formula since earlier this year, and it's perfect for my olive complexion....Hands down the best self tanner I have ever used and trust me I have tried them all , I am extremely fair complexion and this did not make me orange like the rest of the self tanners , I found the one and I will be sticking with it , one thing that I found not to be true about this one is that on me it does not last 2-3 weeks even with 3 applications its more like a week and a half ... But Best of All NO FUNKY SMELL

No smell!...No streaks....I would definitely recommend getting this in the shade dark if you're looking to splurge....) and have been dependent on self tanners to avoid an albino-esque physique for years, so I know to achieve a good result you have to go through the exfoliation process with oilfree products right before application, leave it on overnight and pry have to apply 2 layers to get a deep enough color, then expect the final tan to last about a week before needing to repeat the process.

Great Tan...nice mitt....I really like this product because it is a gradual self-tanner, so the product isn't very dark and obvious after it has set on your skin....PROS: -good initial smell and not-completely-volitile after smell in self tanner terms -goes on well with both the mitt and by hand, but I prefer the mitt because it seems to give a smoother application -for a redhead, it gives me plenty of a tan (same deep tan I was able to get in the tanning bed a decade ago) CONS: -I have to use so much more product when I use the mitt!
