So easy to apply...This is the best...To my surprise, the developed product was not orangey at all but a beautiful, medium dark tan....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
