I started using this product maybe a year ago it has done great things for me. I am one of those girls who used to be white then a ghost but since I started using this product I'm not so much white anymore. I started using it to protect me from getting burnt well after maybe a month of using it I started going tanning and well I started getting dark and not getting burnt. It is very useful for getting tan fast if you don't have the money to go tanning at the salon and its not expensive at all. You apply it daily and you get dark with the days most people think oh this is just going to wash out the first day or leave marks well it does neither, because you have to have clean skin to apply it to it will not wash off with the first wash it takes about a month or so to start fading if you stop applying daily and the darker marks and stuff that doesn't happen you just have to make sure to touch something while it's wet on your skin and it will wipe off beleive me lol I remember getting one white spot on my arm and everyone noticed it but the next day it was gone cause this stuff works like magic. I love the fact that it helps not just make you tan itself but helps you in the long run with suntanning or tanning beds. I'd recommend this to anyone who needs help with getting darkerfast.
