    NO Fake Look Here

    I have been using this since last summer and it's great. I have tried so many different sunless tanning products on the market and this by far is the best I have tried. It doesn't smell bad at all - smells kind of sweet. It's a dark color so you see where you put it on. I have not had any problem with streaking. I put it with my bare hands & it washes off with a little scrubber brush ... more I have them I use disposble rubber medical gloves and put on the product that way - and I am certain to get even coverage. It will last 3-4 days . I have fair skin and I have people at work saying that they can tell I have gotten some sun lately! No one even knows my color comes from a bottle!! There are a ton of youtube videos to watch of people using this product too. I put it on before I go to bed and wake up with a beautiful bronzy not orange color. — 7 months, 2 weeks ago

    An Orangey Mess!

    After seeing all the positive reviews on YT for this self tanner, I decided to give it a try. Only later did I find out that all those "reviews" are sponsored by the company (and therefore biased)! Anyway, I had a heck of a time actually getting the company to send me my order. I never received a confirmation email. Bottom line, I had to contact them several times just to get my order sent to moreme. Once I did receive it, I'd say the end result was mediocre at best. Applying this product was an absolute nightmare. It is very thick and very dark. Blending it in took FOREVER. And once it was done, it got on everything as it was drying. My towels, sheets, and clothes looked like a mess. I put this on before going to bed and when I woke up the next morning, the color was definitely kind of orange. It was also a little streaky (which I attribute to the difficulty in applying this self tanner). The one, and maybe only, thing I liked about this product was the smell. It has an almond-cherry smell that I actually like quite a bit. But everything else about my experience with this self tanner was negative. The company could definitely stand to improve their customer service! — 1 year, 3 months ago

    Worth the money!

    I was nervous about buying this because of the price, I did order it off of amazon, not the website because it was cheaper and because I wanted the medium tone because I am irish and very fair. I was worried about turning orange since I am fair but I got a very nice tan. Not dark whatsoever but that is because I chose medium. Overall I am very happy. The smell is a nice plus also. Sorta smells like cherry almonds. — 3 years ago

    Great GREAT Self Tanner

    After months of watching reviews on YouTube and doing endless research on sunless tanners I finally gave in and bought an 8 OZ bottle of SunLabs Dark Sunsation. Like everyone says its slightly intimidating when you first pump it out (SOOO DARK!) but after you get going its super easy to blend and super easy to tell that you are getting good coverage (nobody wants streaks or blotches!). The more really is not bad at all, even if you leave it on all night and the color is FABULOUS!! I am biracial so I have a unique skin tone that I never thought would really work with a self tanner but I am really loving this one. No orange whatsoever. The only thing I do not like about the product is the price... its high, especially for a broke college student (thank God I'm about to graduate! ;-P)... Overall: Try it!! I promise its worth it — 4 years, 5 months ago

    Fantastic tanning product

    I love this product. I have recommended to others and bought it for my daughter. It gives a very natural look. I do use rubber gloves when I put it on so I don't have to worry about washing it off my palms and fingers, then put a bit on the backs of my hands. — 5 years, 4 months ago
