This is going to be a fairly quick review. I thought when I sniffed this in the tube that the fragrance might be ok (for my sinus allergies – though the fragrance was likely synthetic and not healthy) but as soon as I had some out of the tube onto my leg I was hit by the overwhelming scent. And it reminded me of old lady perfume (sorry, but that’s what it reminded me of.) WHAM – fragrance.
I immediately scrubbed it off … And I do mean scrubbed. I can still smell it lingering so … Even if I didn’t have allergies I don’t think I would want to use this and smell like it all day.
I have no idea if it gives a good tan because I immediately washed it off because I couldn’t take the overwhelming smell.
So here’s what I like: the concept. I like the idea of being able to put a tanning lotion on in the shower and waiting a bit for a gradual tan. This seems WAY easier than half of the other products out there (besides a spray booth.)
What would make it even better?
- a fragrance free OPTION (even if the company also wants to sell a scented version!) I know that the perfume might be covering up other smells but I would rather have natural smells than synthetic overwhelming scent. I can then CHOOSE a natural perfume if I want to use one.
- A DAILY BODY WASH bronzer. Something that was maybe even more gradual but you simply use daily or half the week to get to the bronze level you want.
- Ideally no standing naked in the shower for three minutes waiting without water because its COLD standing in the shower without water!! This would be epic!
Ok – maybe this is just wishful thinking but I figured I would throw it out there anyway. MAYBE someone will make it. Or maybe I should be googling for such a product (that doesn’t turn you orange!)
UPDATE – no no …. WAY too much scent. Got it on one leg and quickly washed it off because I regretted it.
