I bought this stuff expecting miracles and the first time I applied it I ended up getting extremely angry that I had wasted my money! BUT then I tried another way of applying and I absolutely love this stuff!
When I first applied this stuff I used a tanning mit - BIG MISTAKE it just seemed to drag the product around causing massive streaks all over, so then I tried applying with gloves and again a big streaky mess! at this point I'd washed it off twice and had lost all faith in this 'wonder' tan. Anyways I left it months having decided I hated it, then just looking online someone suggested using your hands to apply, so I gave it a go - It went on so much easier and completely smoothly! However orange hands so washed them with soap and water and it did all come off (but takes 10mins). The colour result from this product is exceptional - no orange in sight and there are no streaks - WHATSOEVER! Just a lovely deep brown colour!
After a few more tries I fould that vinyl gloves work best as they are smooth and not clingy - they dont drag the product! DO NOT USE NITRILE GLOVES they will just drag and pull the product and you end up with huge streaks, the gloves have to be vinyl as theyre smooth and slippery.
Bad bits then - smells nice going on, kind of marzipan smell to it but alas as it starts to develop the usual fake tan spicy smell shows up! but its not too awful, I usually apply before bed then wash off in the morning (it will stain your sheets so put a towel down)
I apply this to my face hands and feet with a make up sponge - gives a lighter coverage and no streaks!
I recommend this stuff to everyone - its fab and although its not perfect its the best I've ever used! People comment ususally asking where I've been on holiday not what fake tan do I use!
