Lives up to the awards and accolades!
After tons of obsessive research , I found a review on Good Housekeeping. I'd tried every expensive cream around for years but never stuck with anything. I'm thrilled with this from Boots! After a week of use my mom had a fit over my skin complimenting me over and over. Several acquaintances even noted I'd lost weight - um wish that we're true! But it's the serum. I now add Vichy to it and that's all I do. I use basic non soap cleanser on rare occasion. Mostly I go make up free on skin using mascara lipstick only. I'm 42 mom with four year old and severely disabled husband so i know what stress and neglect can do to your skin. Boots serum has rejuvenated my skin! It's inexpensive and Ulta offers it on sale or with their coupon. It's truly going to change your skin and give u results that my former $200 jar of thick famous cream could never do for me!

Excellent entry to try BB creams
I'd searched Ulta and Sephora as well as web for reviews in a quest to try BB creams. Rarely do I wear make up then its only Bare Esscentuals mineral. But I choose Garnier as my first and the low price was a major factor. I use Vichy anti aging and this bb cream works great as I've had no break outs or irritants. I get mild coverage that truly makes my skin glow without being shiny and makes me look fresher, dare I say younger? Light medium works best for most Caucasian women if you don't have olive skin I was told. I use self tanner always and the color blends perfectly. I use no powder on top cause I'm SHM who is simply too lazy for that step. Again just beautiful mild coverage making my skin lively. I also tried Stilla which comes in one color and loved it too. Csnt say that for others. But for the huge price difference I'm sticking with Garnier as the tube is generously sized and be sure not to squeeze too much out. It took me two tries to figure out how much I need to use without having tons leftover in my hands or face. Plus I bought at Ulta using their coupon an thy have good return policy that make me feel more secure in this purchase. Hope this helps!

Pricey but worth the splurge
I use this as maintainer for my tan towels. It's so moisturizing leaving my skin toned and soft without the tell tale signs of dry streaks often associated with fake tanners. It's never streaked and has mild pleasant smell to me. But scent is personal. It made a positive difference when I started using it. It's not inexpensive. But it's a good investment for me as I use it moderately. Dry time minimum and absorbs fast with no greasy feel.

Easy application, no streaks/no orange
Been using this brand for several years as it has remained quality I can count on. Never streaks. Never orange. Reasonable price especially auto delivery from HSN. It dries super fast. Only downside is that it does require two to three towelettes for whole body application. But the results r worth it. Goes on clear which this doesn't affect streaking because its really that fool proof to put on.

So much hype but disappointed
I bought this after reading several great reviews. I've practiced using all the tips on application. However it simply didn't dry very fast or very well. Gorgeous shine yes. But after 45 minutes as my top coat, three nails with fresh polish rolled after I folded a blanket. And the polish rolled over half down each nails all down to the base coat. I've found Sally Hanson Fast dry n red bottle works way better for drying protection faster. I was simply disappointed in drying tho shine was top notch.

Excellent full body glow
The glove is very easy to use and generously soaked in solution. There is extra solution n bottom of packets and glove will be dripping when u take it out. I save that to put in Ziploc for later use. The glove will cover my entire body and I'm a curvy size 12 so that tells you it'll go far :) The glove tends to leave my body wetter for a longer drying period after application. But it's worth that extra few minutes as it stays on very long - five days of perfect color before fading. My face fades faster but I reapply the saved product on that. It's more expensive but excellent value for lasting longer. And I've tried most self tanners. This one transfers very little also on clothes or sheets. Plus u get anti aging benefits and my skin doesn't get as dry using Dr Dennis as other products for tanning. Give it a try as QVC offers it and you can return even after using if u don't like it. But I think most will be pleased!
