I used this for the first time one morning; by noon people were asking me where I got my tan!! It's a pleasure to apply, so refreshing and light! it gave my face a very natural color; but I forgot to use it lightly around my eyes (frankly I didn't think it would give a lot of color) so I looked a bit like I had been wearing sunglasses on the beach. Lol! Also, make sure you blend it well downwards on your neck and chest to avoid demarcation lines.
SOOO true that using this hides imperfections and minimizes (eliminates, for me) the need for foundation. I had to use a lot less concealer than usual.
And can we say it makes you look more rested, and THINNER? Yep!
Cons: a bit of sunless tan smell after a few hours; and the pad is really saturated so unless you want to turn really dark, don't use all of it until it gets dry. I folded it back up and put it in the paper pouch, and used the other side of it the next day.
For face and body. Apply evenly to clean, dry skin in circular motions wherever color is desired. To customize color, increase the number of repetitions to achieve a darker glow. Wash hands immediately after use.
