Used to really like this product as it gave a very gentle colour to pale skin; it smelt 'chemical' but not offensively so, however the latest product is vile. I agree with the reviewer who thinks it smells of play dough, and shan't be trying it for long enough to see if the tanning effect is as good as it was… Read Full Review

This went on well & smelled OK. But now I'm looking at the result, I wouldn't buy it again. It's certainly no better than any other fake tan product... and it IS more 'fake tan' than gradual tan. As with so many other fake tanners, the result is very YELLOW - I prefer a less yellow/brown tone, but finding a fake tan that isn't yellow-based is like finding a needle in a haystack. (the best one is Avon 'skin so soft' soft & glow but sadly this has been discontinued). However, if you get on… Read Full Review

This product is ok if you understand that it is not going to bronze you. You're going to look like you've been out in the sun for a little while, but you aren't going to be a "footballers wife". Yeap you can double up and get it to go darker, but this means more money and more importantly - More time. If you want a good colour by the weekend you need to start thinking about it on Monday. If you have no illusions about what this'll do then you'll get on with this fine - but if you're like me go… Read Full Review
Bought a bottle to try out as I usually burn in the sun and this really does work I have a lovely tan building and at only £1.99 a bottle I thought I would try it cannot fault it one bit I don't mind the smell, it isn't as bad as some fake tans I've tried so after this I went back and bought two more to stock up as its nearly winter and no doubt I'll buy a few more to put in my cupboard!… Read Full Review
Im pale skinned myself,use this quite a lot.i have used other products of fake tan and cam out streaky n orange.so I think if u get it right applying it u can't go wrong. I use nearly every day after a bath or shower its great. Don't think the Melos that bad just like any tan lotion really… Read Full Review
I am getting married in 6 weeks and have been uming and ahing over sunbeds / spray tan or fake tan..... I would usually use sunbeds a few weeks before but i dont fancy the idea of possibly peeling on my wedding day!! (I always peel) I cant really afford a fake tan and a trial of a fake tan (as i don't really trust them. Some look soooo orangey and how do you tell which ones will turn out ok). I decided to go for Johnsons holiday skin for trial purposes as i bought it a few years ago before i… Read Full Review
This product is excellent apart from the terrible smell it has after application. It lingers around for ages and has completely put me off using it again. I would advise people to look around at other similar products… Read Full Review
I love this product, i have always been scared of fake tans but this is brilliant, i moisturize first and then apply and i have never had streaks of blotches.
I have recommended this to many people and they all love it AND it looks totally real.
I have a few bottles now for safe keeping ;)
Easy to use and great finish, i love being able to show off my legs and not be embarrassed about the brighter shade of white that i carry around with me all year round… Read Full Review
I put it on after a bath, all over my body and waited for about an hour before putting clothes back on, as I know it can go streaky, it didn't feel very absorbed but I thought an hour was long enough. The next morning I woke up with streaky arms and legs, so I used it that night after a bath, but waited 2 hours and used a hair dryer, it still didn't feel fully absorbed, but I still turned out blotchy in the morning, I wouldn't recommend this product… Read Full Review
I used the overnight one and I would advise anyone who is going to use it for the first time to do a skin test. I wish I had. The day after I used it my arms, legs, chest area - basically where I had put it - came out in a horrible rash with huge itchy bumps. The doctor gave me anti-histamine tablets and for a second opinion I asked the pharmasist who coincidently suffered the same outcome as me, so she knew it was from using Johnstons Holiday skin lotion. I am getting married in 2 months… Read Full Review
WARNING! The horrible smell doesn't come out of your clothes/towels! I've used Johnsons Holiday Skin Lotion for a few yrs now. The first one had that familiar fake tan smell, but it disappeared after a shower & gave a beautiful tan for days! The new one last year was AWFUL! The new aloe vera added didn't help. The original smell was sweet, but a lingering annoying smell afterwards, loads of blobs on my skin as the product NEVER absorbed right & not as good a tan either. I decided to give it a… Read Full Review

i bought this because i hate being pale (im very pale skinned) but wasnt sure about sunbeds and cant afford a spray tan every week anymore. when i use fake tan it goes very streaky even the expensive ones!! so thought a gradual tan might do the trick. i dont think it smells anymore than a fake tan does, i did notice the smell but it wasnt bad. it went on well i was abit sticky but i used my hair dryer to dry myself and that was fine. i thought colour was ment to come out 3-4 days but have woken… Read Full Review
Hi :) i feel like i should write a review as i love this product but its true about the smell its a bit nasty i thought it was off ! But my skin is soft and my tan is building up so i gave it mostly good ratings . i hope they sort the smell out but for now a squirt of perfume or body sprits works for me !… Read Full Review
Okay , Im writing this review in April 2011.
The Positives first- I am confused by all these comments abut smell! The scent is a very nice, quite fruity almost vanilla smell which I find very pleasant and when I opened it up to smell it in Boots (yes I am one of those people) Me and my friend both thought it smelled divine. Now the colour is also very good, I used fair to medium skin. The colour is Browny Golden with absolutely no orange tone. It developed after about an hour and I reckon got… Read Full Review
i had heard so many mixed reviews about this product, and nearly every single one commented on the smell of the product- so heres my review for the fair-medium one
packaging- okay, so it comes in a yellow bottle so it is very noticible on the shelves in the store. it is quite bright and summery and on the front it just says what it is and at the very top it says - no more streaks* .. so theres me thinking that the asterix means that there is a massive hidden catch but no- it tells you why… Read Full Review
