The only safe tan is a fake tan! I have very fair skin but love a sunkissed glow in the summer months. This is a great product! The Sublime Bronze spray is a fine even mist. As with any self tanning spray it is hard to get to certain angles - no matter what the bottle says due to the mechanics of a spray bottle, and you do need to follow up and work the product into your skin with your hands. The color is good, not too orange, you just have to be careful to not go over board- don't buy the deep/dark product if you have fair skin, as with any self tanning product. For an under $10 product this is great!!
