NO SMELL...fair skin...I won't be repurchasing this as I've moved on to wanting a much deeper tan than this can give me but this is an easy way to step into the tanner world for newbies who want a slight colour boost!...But as a genuine porcelain girl who struggles to find foundation light enough, I'm so happy to have found a self tanner that doesn't turn me into an Oompa Loompa in one use.

Great Tan...Great Glow...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!...I felt like I rushed a bit when applying and was expecting at least one awkward line here or there but I woke up to perfectly bronzed skin and no bad fake tan smells before or after showering... I may experiment with adding to the color as some reviewers suggested but as a quick and painless way to look like you have spent a few minutes in the sun one coat is perfect.
