I used this in hopes I would get a beautiful 'non-orange' colour like it promises... Well, it definitely was not orange. It also claims it doesn't have an odor, it doesn't streak, easy to apply etc... All of those statements are false.
First of all, there's the 'odor-free' aspect. It may not have much of an odor as you're applying it, butt It smelled SO bad once it dried... There's 'self-tanner' smell, then there's the 'burnt-flesh' smell that Pretend Tan emanates. I maybe could deal with 2 days of nasty smelling skin if the results were as amazing as they said it would be.
Secondly, it's 'easy to apply and streak-free!' Now I have applied many self tanners in my day, so before anyone thinks that I wasn't doing it right (because that's what I thought when I read the negative reviews) I applied it correctly. I exfoliated really well beforehand, I applied it at arms-length in a nice even flow, and I noticed all these black speckles coming out of the can and landing all over my legs and arms. I had to rub in those spots afterward because it started to look like I rolled around in crushed Oreo's. I also did not spray my hands or feet just because I know that overspray will land there and if you put too much, you start to look dirty. My hands ended up extremely uneven and I had these splotchy brown marks everywhere that I was stopped and asked if I had Vitiligo. (It's a condition where you lose pigmentation in the skin)

It starts to get darker after 3-4 hours of application and boy did it ever. In theory, it would be a nice colour if it applied nicely, but it really doesn't. The few areas that weren't splotchy did have a beautiful colour.

Overall, this product is terrible, smells disgusting and I would never ever try it again. I'm returning it... For the $50 I would rather get a Mystic Tan.
