I am a man and this was the first time i used any spray tan having used Dove Summer Glow light before and that only for face. When i first used this I sprayed too close and had damp patches on applciation, and hours later it had patchy result so had to scrub off the best i could and wait a few days for the colour to fade - a mess! But then i saw the vid on youtube. When white again, this time I watched the youtube vid first with the expert guy instructing the girl. I did as he said, twisting... (read more)

I am new to fake tanning, so gave this a go on the basis that previous Garnier products I have used have been great. This however was not. I put one coat on, followed by another ten minutes later (as I wanted a nice rich colour). I was ridiculously sticky for about ten hours and the smell was god awful. I showered about 10pm having put it on at 1pm simply to get rid of the smell as best as I could, I am now a streaky mess. It ran everywhere, and I am left with a smelly patchy orange body....

This spray tan is brilliant and gives a lovely golden glow. You have to follow the instructions and spray at least 40cm away, my friend made the mistake of spraying to close and ended up with loads of streaks. One other tip put something to bottom of your feet if you stand in the mist that's hit the floor your feet will go a really dark browny orange colour which is not a good look! I like the smell and it goes after 20 mins. This product takes about 3-4 hours to develop so I tend to... (read more)

I bought this tan as I'm going on holiday soon and can't tan my legs to save my life! I was told about this tan by a friend I usually uses San tropay moouse ones, but fancied a change. I went out and bought this I was just planing on doing my legs but I decided to arms as well. I spray as instructed 40cm away, and was like oh I'm used to other looking tan a little bit more tan instantly. So I let it dry and develop for 3 hours and didn't really notice a whole lot of different, a little but... (read more)

I applied the mousse version of this product after my morning shower, so it had all day to absorb and dry, and result was OK. BUT - went to bed, and next morning my bed linen was badly stained. (Thank goodness I didn't wear my best cream trousers during the day). It toook a couple of washes to get the stains out. Contacted Garnier and got a patronising reply saying the can said 'to avoid fabric'. So, we are expected to walk around naked and sleep on floorboards ! They have totally ignored... (read more)

Tried this for the first time, followed the instructions exact as on the bottle with my partner so we didnt mess it up.
spraying on is easy but as a mist doesnt exactly give you confidence that it is covering all of you
Results were mixed, although sprayed same distance all over, the results mainly appear in overnight and they were streaky at best but in other areas seemed basic tan
I think ill stick with the moisturising lotion, at least you know where your putting it and can spread much... (read more)

This is my first time using any self tanning product ever. I naturally do not tan at all and remain milky white most summer.
I bought this as it was on offer at around 7-8 pounds, I cant remember exactly.
I think the reason why so many people are getting streaks here is because they arent reading the instructions which states hold the can 30 CENTIMETRES away from skin and spray in circles. I know this because when doing the back of one of my legs i accidentally got too close, so i have a... (read more)

Right, seriously, do not buy this!! I never usually wear fake tan becasue i have quite olivey skin anyway but I decided to try some for our engagement party last September. I had bought a shortish dress to wear and had quite pasty legs so was recommended this spray by a friend. I only wanted to use it on my legs so a few days before I though i would try it out to see if it worked. I followed the instructions exactly and went to bed hoping for an even tan. How wrong I was!!

Awful awful product! I bought this because I couldn't afford my normal spray tan this month. I applied it twice within 48hrs and it made absolutely no difference to my legs or torso - they are as pale as they were before. This alone I wouldn't mind - you win some, you lose some! But unfortunately the horrific side effects to my pale legs were orange feet and one big, fat streak down the back of one of my legs neither of which will budge regardless of how much I scrub!! I would blame the... (read more)

Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer - I used this for the first time at the weekend for a pre holiday glow...and thought it was fab! I was careful to exfoliate all over first which I think is key...as is washing off the soles of your feet afterwards..sort of common sense really! I did not need to rub it in, it dried within a couple of minutes and I just put my dressing gown on and relaxed for 30 mins to ensure it did not rub off...not much happened that I could tell after the first spray but...

Ive read a few reveiws on here saying this is awful, and 'lies lies lies' but tbh I think it really does depend on how you use it and the space you do it in. I've NEVER had a problem with it going to dark, unless ive put it on dry skin, and ive never seen it 'shimmery', ok so its not dry but it dries quickly! overall this is the best/cheapest spray tan i think is available, st tropez is a very good one but less practical application and higher price leads me back to garnier.

Very easy to apply and it doesn't come off on your clothes or bedsheets and I definitely had no streaks! I did miss a part on my arm but it was very easy to respray the area to give an even tan.

It is a really good product but you have to know how to put it on. Even though it seems as if you just have to spray it i put plenty on and then spread it evenly.

They should have never changed from the original. The original make of Ambre Solair was much better than the new formula. The only thing better about the new one is its fragrance. The old one went on almost like an oil which was much better to rub in etc. The new one goes on like a water based. The old one went a much better colour also. (read more)

I'm a big fan of self spray tan, I've used many. When I saw Garnier no streaks bronzer, I thought I was on to a winner as it was half price, £7.00 instead of the usual £14.00. I felt confident purchasing the product as Garnier is a well known brand.
I followed the directions on the back of the can but may as well just have gone ahead and ignored them. I woke up the next day to legs that resembled a zebra. I tried to scrub the tan off but to no avail and had to wear jeans or trouser... (read more)

Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Spray is clear so you can't see where you're putting it, it's runs out pretty fast too. The smell can be pretty intense when you first apply it but it's soon dies down. States it can be applied from any angle, well, you can, but it's extremely hard. I had to shout my sister to help me! It takes a few hours to notice a change in colour. For about an hour after your skin is still pretty moist so I had to disappear up to my room and wonder around naked until it... (read more)

The first time I used Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Spray I ended up with runs/treaky marks all over my legs and arms...not a good look.

I would recommend holding it closer than the advised 30cm's and spraying continually in long sweeping motions. Two 'coats' in one go seems to give a pretty nice golden colour. (read more)

Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Spray goes on so easy and you can reach the hard to reach parts of your body with the dry mist, the colour turns out great really tanned and only after 2 hours, it lasts shower after shower.

I really liked this product. It was easy enough to use and it could get into hard to reach places. It's definitely easier than creams or mousses.

Only used it once so far, over all its an acceptable colour, apart from the few very obvious streaks. maybe it just takes practice to use.

I love no streaks bronzer and after reading other peoples reviews some think its great some think its not!! My only advice I could give is to exfoilate in the shower with a body shop body scrub, dry your arms and moisturise leave the moisturiser to dry and then apply the no streaks bronzer an don't spray in lines. Me and my cousins have been testing it out and have found if you hold the spray down and continue to go up and down the area it comes out a lot better. Hope this helps !! (read more)

I love the idea of a home self tan spray, and this feels just like the stuff from the salon when you apply it! I had finished applying in less than 10 minutes and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it dries in comparison to creams.
The odour is okay and not too biscuity, it doesn't leave a mess behind. Unfortunately the instructions on the can are what let this product down. It just says to spray on at a distance of 30cm, which I did. I have waited nearly 2 hours and have yet to see a... (read more)
