This was my first sunless tanner and I thought I would give this a try since I am always trying to avoid the sun. My legs were where I applied it. I made sure to apply it after exfoliating since I heard that can cause patchy areas of color. It didn't have a very chemical scent so I was glad of that....until it warmed up on my skin about 15 minutes after I applied it. It started to give off a strange aroma, like something fried??? It was pretty weird but I thought well, I can always add perfume to cover up the smell. I wanted to see if my legs actually would develop a color. I used this for about 4 days straight, and yes, my legs did start to look a little darker, but not by much. I exfoliate my legs every other day normally and noticed that my skin felt like it had some sort of film over it where I had applied the lotion, yuck! I will say that some of the color did last even after I used a body brush on my legs. I will probably give the medium to dark lotion a chance after I finish up this bottle.
