I've used the old Johnson's Holiday Skin Body Lotion before, and it was really great- no smell, even colour, just generally looked like an actual tan without being orange. However, I used the new one this morning, and it absoloutely stank. Can't stand the smell! One plus was that my colour was slightly darker within an hour, which is great, but my legs did feel sticky for about half an hour after applying it. Overall, I wouldn't recommend to a friend- it may change my skin colour quickly,... (read more)

I have facial skin problems Rosacea - high colour and dry skin across the cheeks. I don't particularly want a tan however by chance I have found that this product seems to ease the condition. No idea why! .... so will use it once or twice a week for that reason :) (read more)

I have just recently started to use the product and it reeks! However after a shower the smell goes away and I'm left with a great tan, I've got to say that I hope their reading this so they change what it smells like, I've heard that the old one smelt really nice although I haven't tried it. However in the end I love the results as it leaves me with what looks like a natural tan, I wish I wish I knew about the smell before I purchased it! (read more)

I totally agree with the other posts. The smell is awful!! My best friend and my partner refused to be anywhere near me with it on. I was so upset as I had used this product for years. That was about 10 months ago and I have used something else since but I loved it so much I just bought it again to see if it really was that bad. Again - I love the results, but the stink!! Bin again. So disappointed I am going to send this page to them and fingers crossed, they will pay attention... (read more)

I have used Johnson's Holiday Skin Body Lotion many times in the past. This year I bought a new bottle & couldn't believe the awful results! The old version had a smell, yes, but I would apply it overnight & shower in the morning. The new version has a nicer scent in the bottle, but once it sets into your skin - YUK! I can't bear the smell of my skin with this product! It isn't as moisturising as the old version, leaves blobs of product on your skin like bad moisturiser that you can't wipe... (read more)

i applied the product last nite around 9pm or there abouts and i have to say around 11pm i could start to see a change of tone on my legs which i liked alot and would make me more prone to put it on in the morning. around the time i started to see the tone change i could also start to detect a smell lingering. this morning the smell wasnt as bad but i did have to shower just to make sure there was no prolonging smell. the only thing that would put me of the product is the fact it makes you...

As a very fair skinned person it is nice to find a fake tan product which doesn't make you look orange, but it has an awful fusty smell which lingers. (read more)

I have only just bought this product(about an hour ago) so ignore my review score because I don't know how well it works yet, but just reading through these reviews I just had to say that I can not understand why people hate the smell so much, my bottle barely smells, and the smell it does have is quite nice, I'm actually sat smelling my arms such is the pleasant-ness of the smell, perhaps I got a new one??? It does say on the bottle that it has a subtle fresh fragrance. I'm sure everyone... (read more)

I don't know why everyone's complaining about the smell. It isn't really a smell like you'd smell on a human like...it's more like a car air freshener, but it doesn't smell bad and it isn't too strong. I got mine out of Poundland, so it was only a quid, which was good, and it already, after a few hours, has a very light brownish tan, which is all I wanted. Not for those who want a self tan that's odourless or has a really strong and quick effect. (read more)

I used this one night, just one application I felt clammy and sticky for hours .. I awoke the next morning feeling really itchy down my sides... this has now turned into a rash all down my sides, across my stomach and up and down my arms. It's now starting on my back too. Johnston's is supposed to be for sensitive skin I thought? - Anyway, I'm covered in tiny little itchy bumps that are very uncomfortable, this has been 4 days now. I'm sorry, but I will NOT be buying this product again.... (read more)

This new fragrance is disgusting. after using it all over my body in preperation for a wedding on the weekend to look a little tanned, my partner said i smelt stagnent & he could not bare to be near me (nice)!! I will never ever use it again, i have just threw two full bottles in the bin. I scrubbed my body for 15 mins and after 3 showers the smell is still lingering. I would rather stay lily white. thanks Johnson's. (read more)

I wanted a pick me up as the weather is so rubbish and when it is sunny I just burn and go red, so i ususally buy nivea sun kissed but they were out of stock so I bought this to "tan" my body. Well this is does not! I applied it to my legs overnight and the next morning I had STREAKS galore! Its pathetic.. Why does the bottle say in very tiny writing "no more streaks"?? What a lie!
I will be going back to Nivea Sun kissed as it does the job perfectly and it smells MUCH better! (read more)

i dont agree!
if you turn orange youve put it on too much ,using this product once maybe twice will bring out your highest tan colour for your body,if you apply more than this and it turns orange it means that the tan you had before you went orange is you darkest sun colour!
its a good product although the ONLY problem is it can turn very streaky if you dont apply well !
i wnt orange first few times i used it and then got told about my darkest colour! (read more)

used this product for the first time last week. i have used it everyday and the colour has developed well, allthough i am slightly orange but thats more to do with my skin tone then the product it's self. i have read through the other reviews and people are talking about a horrible smell, i thought it smelt quite plesant, not offensive at all but the bottle i have purchased is a new improved fragrance apparantly. i would defo recommend this product to a friend, does exactly what it says on...

I bought it because i wanted to be prepared for summer, well, you know, nice tanned skin ;)
When i first used it, i was't surprised with the smell (unpleasant, but bearable), because i've read reviews about other tanning products (almhost all of them have unpleasant smells).
I apply this product at night and when i wake up in the morning the unpleasant smell is gone.
After a few days of using this product i got an orange glow... My hands look nicely tanned, but legs are orange.
Of course,... (read more)

i used to use Johnsons Holiday Skin years ago. I bought a new bottle two days ago from Bodycare as it was a hell of a lot cheaper than it used to be and i thought i would give it another try. I have to say that even though Johnsons claim to have given it a new subtle fragrance i was appauled at the smell. My husband told me it smelled like i had chip fat all over my body and i cannot get the smell to dissapear even though i have showered thoroughly. I will be taking this product back to... (read more)
