“You Get What You Pay For!”

Written on: 14/10/2013 by JenniferColeman (1 review written)

Overall I didn't really like this self tanner. The color I got from it just wasn't dark enough. I tried using it for several days in a row (which is a real pain) and it still just produced a very light tan. The smell out of the bottle wasn't too bad, but over time it started to stink of DHA and chemicals. So even though it's very inexpensive, I just didn't like the color or the smell. There's definitely better self tanners out there that cost a bit more than this one!… Read Full Review

I'm still not sold on nivea tanners. You have to apply, apply, apply to get a proper colour! Even though it didn't give much natural colour it still had quite a smell to it, good moisturiser though… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2007 by loobyloobyloo (3 reviews written)

I usually use the Johnsons Holiday Skin, but it stinks. So I thought I would try the Nivea one, as I use Nivea moisturiser and love it. I was really disappointed, as the Nicea Sun Self tan Lotion didn't change my colour at all. I used it for a week every night to see if that made a difference, as it does say it gradually builds colour, but it still didn't do anything. I've gone back to my Johnsons, and after one application I'm a lovely glowing colour… Read Full Review

“This is the first self tanning lotion I used, and I...”

Written on: 23/12/2006 by tomassi (13 reviews written)

This is the first self tanning lotion I used, and I have used a few since, and it's definitely the best out of the few I have used.

Nivea Sun Self Tan Lotion goes on just like body lotion, so if you just rub it on plentifully you can't really go wrong. Some people don't like the fact that it has no colour, but I've had no problem. It has quite a nice odour, unlike others. The colour comes out gradually, so I put it on before I go to bed, and I wake up with a tan! You do need to put a couple… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2006 by emza2511 (176 reviews written)

A friend recommended this Nivea Sun Self Tan Lotion to me. It has a lovely fragrance, but I wouldn't try to apply it with your hands because it's a lotion and not coloured so you cannot control where you are putting it as much. My first application went a little wrong because of this. I use a foundation sponge to apply it as you can easy see where you are putting it and rub it in more or less in desired places. Also suitable for use on the face and I sometimes just use this as my foundation… Read Full Review

“My husband - bless him - is fed up being pale skinned...”

Written on: 15/06/2005 by Loulie (1 review written)

My husband - bless him - is fed up being pale skinned and never tanning so asked me to apply fake tan to him. I was very wary and reluctanct as he wasn't prepared to remove all his hair! However we had a go with this stuff and the results have been excellent. The colourless lotion applies easily and dries fairly quickly (although I would prefer it to dry more quickly) and develops after about 6 hours to a really natural looking tan. I like it so much I had a go myself the next day! It is… Read Full Review
