Super pretty and not over done shimmer. Light smell. Not too pricey (for it being origins). Lasted at least 24 hours- without being wet. I used it during the summer for events. Would buy again.

This is a great product if you have problems tanning naturally or if uou have problems being out on the direct sunlight too long. This is a natural self tanning foes not stain your skin and leave you looking orange.

Favorite product!! i would recommend to anyone!! Smells super good but can be kinda pricey. Its great though it's ever gentle and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. Definitely worth the money.

I first used this when I was a junior in high school and my mom was counter manager at the origin inside of macy's here, and at first I loved how dark I looked and how natural it looked. However, I decided to try it again since it's been a few years and lately I've been having bad luck with a nice dark and long lasting tanner. Well, this time I wasn't really impressed, I felt like I had more shimmer on me than tan, and it didn't last me through the day. Maybe I had one from a bad batch or something but I was kind of disappointed this time.

I googled skin tanners for a few days before I finally arrived on Origins The Great Pretender. The smell is great just like the face wash I use daily, nice and smoothy minty fragrance. It goes on really well, just be sure to use sparingly so you do not over due it and make sure you rub it in thoroughly! I bought this for a trip to vegas and it made my skin look natural and has a little bit of a sparkle/glimmer to it which also makes your skin look incredible. I would recommend to anyone who wants a natural looking tan!

This is one of the best products o have ever used. I am very pale/fair skinned, and this is the ONLY self tanner that has not given me an orange tint. It has a distinct smell, but I don't mind it. There is a slight golden shimmer when first applied (but doesn't look like sparkles on your body.) last even after showering and shaving. Origins has a forever customer because of this product. Remember to shake well before use, and it can tend to be on the watery side.

I have a bottle of this from last summer and let me just say it is the best self tanner I've had! This tanner is shimmery and a very nice bronze color from the tube, it glides on the skin smooth and lasts a while! I love the smell its almost like a light mint which is sweet. It kept me tan all summer last year and i am going to buy a second bottle for this summer! I love this product it is my holy grail for summer! It's cheaper on the actual website so i suggest going there (: hope this helped!

How shimmery is this product? Would this be appropriate to wear to a wedding or would it make me look like a child?

How dark does this appear after first use? Does it streak? How long does it last?
