Very easy to use...This is the best...It gets me very dark and works best when using the st tropez polish in the shower beforehand....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
