Gets the job done...Best for the face...I am new to tanner to use on the face, but I heard about this on youtube and decided it was safe enough to try....I must wear a minimum of 30SPF, it needs to be sweat & water proof so those tinted BB cream with a laughable SPF will not cut it and I am not a foundation person so my only option for not looking like the negative of a Dalmatian, is to try to fake a tan to camouflage my patchwork of skin colours

This is the best...Very easy to use...Much safer than a tanning bed....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
