Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alba Sunless Tanner Been buying this for a couple of years now and really like it. Not orange like some and the price is great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does put on a decent self tan But it sweats off.....onto clothing! Didn't have this issue with other self tanners like Beach Colours that Swanson no longer carries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tanner I was really pleased with the results of this sunless tanner. All the others I tried made my skin itch as if I had poison ivy. This product is easy to apply and gives a natural color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Golden" tanning means not much tanning Of all the self tanning products I used this one is the least effective. It says "golden" tanning on the tube, which, translated, means that the tanning is not going to be very strong - and it tends to be on the yellow side. The cream feels hydrating, though, and it is not greasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is the only product that does not give an orange color. I have tried others and that is what has happened. I wanted just a hint of color that looked natural and that is what this product does. I am happy to have found this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I use and love a lot of Alba products but this is a first time for the Sunless Tanning Lotion. This product goes on very well and really gives good coverage and great tan color (not orange). I have a medium complexion and only needed tan on my legs and it is the best I've used. I used very sparingly on knees ankles, toes as the color really works well. The product is also very hydrating. I will use this year round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunless Tanning Cream Ever! No Kidding, I have ordered 6 more tubes. This is the first sunless tanning cream that does NOT smell awful! It has a very light, barely noticeable slightly fruity scent, but none of that awful smell that every other product I have tried has. If you exfoliate and apply a little moisturizer to the dry areas, tops of feet, ankles, knees, elbows, back of hands, then apply the cream (I use gloves) you have a golden, non-streaky glow in a few hours. I do it overnight. If you apply on second day after a shower and light exfoliation, the tan deepens. Then I maintain every 2 or 3 days. Very natural looking, non-streaky, and no smell. I LOVE this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product I've been looking for a new self tanner for years. They can be so expensive or harsh to the skin. I feel this product smells very good (like pineapple) and works well. You do have to let it dry 10 minutes, not too bad. Around my feet I mixed it with a little lotion, otherwise it gets too dark around the ankle bone area. Seemed to help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Natural Tan I've been using this product for years and it's a very natural tan. I like this brand and they've improved it recently, so it no longer has a bad chemical odor, which is nice! It may rub off on clothes before completely dried, but it's never stained anything I wear. It can streak, so just make sure you follow the directions and all should be well. This is a great, inexpensive product that I recommend. Other tanning products are much more expensive and work just as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Subtle, buildalble tan I'm fair skinned so this is good for me. I don't alway want a dark tan so the subtleness of this lotion is ok. It looks quite natural but someone wanting a more dramatic tan may not be satisfied. You can always do build the color with repeat applications. Occasionally streaks but probably my own error. Natural ingds. Natures Gate is also a good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Effective Self Tanner Having tried many brands, this one has the most natural ingredients, does not smell bad, applies easily, resulting in a nice golden tan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I've been using the product for about a year. The smell is great, the result are perfect just take the time to exfoliate properly before hand. Sometimes I'll use the product before going to bed however it can make you feel a bit cold during sleeping but waking up to a nice glow in the morning after a quick shower really is great. I use this product 12 months out of the year and would highly recommend it even in the winter months. Nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Goes on smooth and evenly and develops into a natural looking tan. Also, leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized. Need to wait a few minutes before dressing...stained a shirt when dressed too soon after application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love this product! Gives me great color & does not look Orange or leave streaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and It Works! This tanning lotion gives a nice bronze glow without any orange. I don't care for the scent of most self tanners, but this one is not unpleasant. It's full of botanicals and does not streak when applied properly. It does not contain a sunscreen if you read the label, although the product description on the web page says that it does. Fine with me. I would highly recommend this product.
