Best for the face...Gets the job done...I normally spray tan with the Versa in shade Dark with no bronzer (for reference) and using 8 drops of this blended with that perfectly just giving me color where my spray tan was fading....After washing my hands well I mix a little lotion and a few tanning drops together in a small container then dip a foundation brush in to get the back of my hands and feet and it's amazing - no awkward dark spots, just a smooth airbrushed look

Nice One Day Glow...I loved the green...I use the dark (purple) and love it!...I'm pale all year long & have never looked naturally tan & thanks to this I keep getting compliments on how tan I look :) if you're on the fence, I would definitely say give it a shot & apply it twice before giving up on it bc it does take a little practice to get the hang of when you're used to lotion or foam

Very easy to use...So easy to apply...In the morning, super dark, but blotchy on my face....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
