Since I have an almost two year old, and I’m 15 months pregnant (not really, but some days it feels like that), laying out in the hot sun isn’t recommended for anyone–much less pregnant ladies, and it’s October and there’s no more hot sun, I decided to use some sunless tanner.

First, what I really liked about the product:

There is an odor, but it’s not nearly as strong as the odor with their regular tanning lotion. An hour or so after it dried, I didn’t notice any significant smell from using the product.

It’s very easy to apply. I started from the bottom and worked my way up. The foam blended easily and I didn’t have any streaking or orangey-ness. (I just made that word up.)   Just watch out for dry patches of skin. Those spots will absorb more product and darken in an odd way.  (Hello left knee!)

It dries very quickly! I probably spent less than 5 minutes applying it and a couple of minutes to dry. That time commitment works for me.

Thing that I didn’t love:

It takes several applications to build up a good base color. However, this product is so easy to apply, and basically goof-proof–I really didn’t mind that.

In Conclusion . . .

If you’ve got a few days before you want to look your glowiest and most fabulously tan, this is a great option.  The price point is relatively low, it’s really hard to mess up applying it, and it dries quickly with minimal odor.  I’d purchase and use it again.
