Ok, I am usually a sun junkie - have been all my life. I tan pretty easy, maybe burn once a year, if that, and generally go without using sunscreen everyday. After coming to terms with the fact that I am beginning to get little wrinkles (I'm 37), this summer I decided to use self tanner instead of the real thing. My prior experience with the stuff was a mystic tan about 14 years ago that seemed ok but gave me little color and faded really quick. I did some research and landed here. I bought tanceuticals dark about a month ago. I followed the directions 100%, and it turned out pretty good. I did mess up on the feet and had a couple light streaks because I didn't apply a thick enough coat. Those problems were both remedied by the next application. I found that one application looked too yellow on me, so I did another one the next day and loved the results. I did find that I needed to reapply every other night to keep it looking nice, so I ran out of it fast- the bottle is about enough for two weeks, if that. When I ran out of the product, I decided to try St. Tropez because they have it at Ulta and I hate how long I had to wait on shipping for tanceuticals- didn't want to fade too much before it got here. I tried both the regular and dark ST mousses. The color is good, but fades very quickly and in patches, and while the mousse is more forgiving in the streak department than lotion, the stuff stinks, is super sticky to sleep in, and seriously stains your Jammies and sheets! Yuck. Experiment done, I'm going back to Tanceuticals- it's worth the wait.

I've used a lot of different self tanners in both mousse and lotion form over the past several years. My top favorite thing about this product is that it smells amazing, a lot of self tanners stink bad! This formula is especially great for your face since it doesn't seep into your pores, it doesn't clog your pores, nor does it leave you with dots that look like black heads but really aren't. I have found that mousse formulas personally work best for my skin, but this is amazing for my face and I will continue using it on my face. I hope Tanceuticals eventually releases a mousse formula because I would love to try it. This leaves you with a natural glowy tan that is build-able. If you would like a dark golden-goddess tan apply a few more layers of product and you will get that tan :)

For many years, I was a sun worshiper. After learning about the dangers of tanning, I will never go back to laying in the tanning bed or sun ever again. ESPECIALLY since I have found this wonderful self-tanner that makes me look as if I have just gotten back from the beach. It smells wonderful and looks even better. It is dark but somehow still looks natural. I love this stuff!

I've tried many self tanners and this one is the best I've ever used!! Has a pleasant smell and dries pretty quickly. As long as you apply it right, there isn't any streaks or blotches - just make sure you apply as directed and exfoliate before hand and add regular moisturizer on tops of your feet, ankles, knees, elbows/etc... like you would with any self tanner. I've never tried the one for face, but I'm sure it's just as awesome as this. Great price for what you get as I feel a little goes a long way - and at times they have discounts and promo codes. Definitely a product I highly recommend trying. :)

I actually really liked this. I think it leaves a really nice golden color that lasts pretty nicely. However, I am very bad with moisturizing and you absolutely can't do that with this product, especially if you have dry skin. Every time I used it and didn't moisturize it faded super patchy and my legs looked like lizard skin. However, now that I've been dedicated to moisturizing its fading nicely, maybe a very light patch here and there but you get that with every tanner. The smell is good but SO strong. I find that even after washing my body the next morning you can still kind of smell it, but I guess its okay. I also really like the face lotion, it doesn't break me out and looks really nice.

Definitely the best self tanner on the market. Other self tanners have harmful ingredients in them like alcohol or parabens. I always had troubles with using self tanners, because I have difficult skin (dry skin and acne). Other self tanners break me out, irritate my skin or dry out my skin. Some of them faded very scaly/patchy or were already patchy the day after first using them (no matter how much I hydrated my skin). I was very skeptical of buying Tanceuticals, because all brands claim that they are the best.
But oh my god this stuff is incredible! I screened the ingredients in it and it has no harmful stuff in it at all. It really moistures my skin, I don't feel any irritation on my skin when using it, it doesn't break me out and it's so good looking on the skin. Never scaly of patchy skin. And the smell of this stuff is delicious! Also it doesn't stain my sheets. And last but not least, I find that my skin looks so much better when I use this self tanner instead of other self tanners.
The customer service is alsof very kind, so I love the fact that my money goes to great people.
I love this brand and never gonna buy another self tanner anymore, because me and my skin love this product!
(I'm from the Netherlands, so excuse me if my English isn't that good. I had to leave a review on this product).

I researched the hell out of self tanners for literally weeks before coming across this on a random tanning blog. I had previously purchased the very expensive bottles like St. Tropez, Clarins, Dior.. Ect. And while they weren't bad, they definitely were not worth the money I was shoveling out for them. Long story short: I got this and have never looked back. I feel like it's this big secret thing that only I know about, but clearly I can see others have figured it out too. Go us!

I purchased this lotion earlier this week and I received it last night. Super fast shipping! I couldn't wait to try it so I showered and exfoliated right away. I also purchased the application mitt and I'm so glad I did! It made it SO easy to apply and blend in. I do have to agree that the mitt seems a little cheaply made so I may need to order a couple backups. The lotion is a bit on the runny side so make sure to apply lightly at first. For hard to reach areas I just put a couple drops on the actual glove and then blended it in. I left it on for about 5 1/2 hours as I did not want to get too dark and it looks amazing!! I don't see any streaks at all and the color is very natural. I will definitely be purchasing this again!!

A few years back I decided to stop using tanning beds. I wanted to focus on keeping my skin healthy and became quite pasty white during the process. I missed being tan...let's face it, we all look better tan! After trying MANY self tanners I never achieved the perfect tan. I can across the Tanceuticals website a few weeks ago and decided to give it a try after reading the reviews. I ordered the CC Dark Tanning Lotion and received it a few short days later. THIS ONE IS A WINNER!!! It's super easy to apply using the mit and it has a great scent. I do recommend going easy on the hands and feet. The color looks great and I've received many compliments! Also my skin actually feels and looks smoother/healthier

My skin tans from the sun very easily, so I have always relied on being outside and tanning beds to stay dark. In recent years, I've become much more aware of the dangers of these types of tanning, and have cut way back. I've tried several self tanners, but never was happy with the results, and the smell was always more than I could stand. When I read the great reviews for Tanceuticals, I decided to give one more self tanner a try, and ordered a bottle of the dark lotion. I tried it for the first time 3 days ago, and I am very impressed with the results. So far, it is not like any of the other self tanners I have tried. First, the lotion is very easy to apply. I used a mitt, and was finished with my entire body in probably 10 minutes. It is smooth and absorbs quickly. I was completely dry within 5 minutes of finishing applying. One note: a little of this product definitely goes a long way. I think I will use a bit less of it next time. A couple of button sized dabs are all you need to get large areas like lower legs, thighs, and arms covered. Also, definitely moisturizer areas like feet, hands, knees, and elbows, and use very sparingly in these areas. I went to bed as soon as I finished applying. The product did not stain my pajamas or sheets at all - not a trace. I think the scent is far superior to any self tanners I've ever tried. The coconut smell is pleasant. However, I still think it has a trace of that "self tanner smell". After a shower the next day, I can't smell it on my skin anymore, but my sheets still smell like it - so that is a downside. But overall, the scent is much better than any others I've tried, and definitely something you can live with. Ok, so the next morning I got up and eagerly turned on the lights to see if in fact, I had the gorgeous tan the package had promised. I was very impressed with the results. My skin had turned a very nice, golden, rich tan color. The coverage was extremely smooth and even - probably more even than my natural tans have always been!! The only places that looked unnatural were a few small spots on my feet and hands, but I think that was just because I used a bit too much on those areas. Next time, I will be more sparing. I made a paste out of baking soda and lemon juice, and used an old toothbrush to scrub the few spots where I had gotten too much product, and that corrected the problem areas nicely. I am on the 3rd day now since applying, and the color is still very nice and smooth and golden. I am looking forward to reapplying in a couple of days. Though $24 a bottle is a bit steep for me, I think this bottle will last me for quite a few applications, as it takes so little to do my entire body. I am very pleased and pleasantly surprised. I will be purchasing Tanceuticals again, and recommending it to others. Great product!!!
