Image for Worst gradual self tanner!

I am very fair skinned. I NEVER tan. I burn very easily and after the burn fades, I have a very subtle darkening in skin color and that's it. If I go out in the sun again, I burn even worse and there is NO change in skin color afterwards.

I have also had some bad experiences with self tanners - as have we all! So I was ecstatic to see this advertised on TV. I went out to purchase the product as soon as possible and I was even happier to find they had a gradual tanner for the face as well!

I did have a change in color. It is very gradual and if you want noticable color you have to apply it religiously. I applied twice a day when I could - once in the morning and once at night. However, despite my exfoliation efforts, the faux tan looked "cracked" - like my skin looked like it had cracks in it! And the face lotion have me lots of pimples all over my face and neck that took forever to get rid of. This is by far the worst self tanning experience I have ever had. I don't even have sensitive skin. I rarely have problems with products making me breakout - I can't even imagine how bad it would be if I DID have sensitive skin! Also, the pimples on my face went away faster than the ones on my neck and chest. Even after the redness and swelling went away, I had this crusty, pale brown, flakey stuff all over. It was kind of like dry skin but it was much darker and didn't itch or anything. It was an icky side effect of the healing process. My doctor later told me that I didn't actually have "pimples" - I had hives which are an allergic reaction. What's weird is that I tested this product on a small area on my leg to make sure and nothing happened. I strongly reccomend finding a different product. If you have to use this one don't say no one ever warned you!
