I set out to find a gradual tanner that didn't smell absolutely disgusting. If you're going to put it on as a moisturizer in the morning it can't smell like fake tan! Though the scent isn't my favorite lotion scent of all time, I think it's the best I've smelled in a gradual tanner. It's a kind of floral scent with only the slightest hint of tanner smell. In my opinion it smells immensely better than the Loreal Sublime Glow Gradual Tanner and the Jergens Natural Glow Gradual Tanner.
As with most gradual tanning moisturizers, it takes a few applications before much of a difference can be seen. I bought the lotion for medium to dark skin, though I'm probably closer to light to medium. The tan does not look orange at all, but again, a drastic difference can't really be seen. If you're looking to go a few shades darker, this probably isn't the product for you.
This was the most surprising feature of the moisturizer. I wasn't expecting this aspect of the lotion to really work at all. Wrong! It did! I shaved in the shower just before I applied the moisturizer and the next day the hair did feel finer, and did come in a little bit slower. I wouldn't buy this product solely for its shave minimizing effects though. I find it to be a nice bonus but I don't find it effects the hair enough to make that the reason to purchase this product
I'm very pleased with this product overall. It doesn't smell offensive, gives a slight glow to the skin, and as a bonus minimizes the appearance of hair. If you're in the market for such a gradual tanner, I would definitely recommend this product!
