Did not work for me
on 4 November 2012
-bright colour guard
-leaves a nice dark colour after washing off the colour guard
-sits horribly on pores , especially on your face
-the colour is patchy from day 1
-fades too quickly, 2 days after application all the tan is gone
-dries out skin
-can get streaky because it dries really fast
I bought this because of all the good reviews I found online combined with the cheap pricetag, but I was disappointed and I would not buy it again.
First off I highly advise you against application on your face: it is too drying; it makes you look like you put mud on your face when you have the colour guard on (believe me,although temporary, this is very depressing) and when you wash it off it leaves your pores (especially on the nose) horribly dark like you've never had a facial in your whole life ( and I don't have oily skin, and my pores had never looked so blatant in my whole life).
It is very patchy on the rest on the body too, as if the mousse had not sank properly all over. This is clearly the product's fault because I scrubbed vigorously before applying and did not moisturize(because they say that moisturizing before application of self tan does not allow the product to sink in properly) and nevertheless the result was not good.
I ended up mixing it with a cheap moisturizing lotion (1/4 of this mousse and 3/4 of lotion) not to dump it directly to the trashcan. I now use this mix sparingly in between proper tanning lotions of other brands, but I look forward to finish this a.s.a.p.
I usually use Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Lotion and this is an awesome product to which I will stick. I've never had any issue with it.
