Even after all these years this company has yet to perfect their sunless tanning lotion. The smell is typical sunless tanner and is obvious to anyone around you. It is extremely pungent. The "tan" takes weeks to become apparent and you so have to be very careful to keep it away from your knees and palms of your hands. Not worth the hassle!

Good Color, Bad Smell
by Melissa

I love that the color builds gradually, but the smell isn't very pleasant. If you do try this, make sure you're not leaving the house anytime soon, or everyone will know you're wearing instant tanner!

Works great!
by Kelly

I have tried several self tanning products over the years and most of them come out looking fake. I tried Neutrogena's Build a Tan last year and came out with a natural look! I will definitely use it again this spring to get ready for summer!

Natural and easy to use
by Mandy

I was previously disappointed with Neutrogena's sunless tanning lotions, but this one surprised me with its natural look. I used this lotion before prom so I wouldn't be so winter white and it worked wonders. Although it took a month for it to reach the level of tan I wanted, the tan was flawless and looked completely natural. Usually sunless tanners make my elbows and knees look odd, but I didn't have that problem with this lotion.

This is the best!
by Carol Covello

Several years ago I tried sunless tanning, and was disappointed with the streaky finish. Then I tried 'Build a Tan' last spring - in a desperate attempt to 'glow' my white winter legs for spring. I was skeptical that it would work - but was quite happy with the results!

I've used it for a year now. The first week I apply it every day before bed (it drys quickly). Once I get the color I want I use it every 3 days or so.

The only drawback is when I get a pedicure - the buffing does rub some off, so I put an extra coat on my ankle/calf area the night before, and touch up right after the pedicure so that area can 'catch-up' again.

Well worth it!

Good for freckled types
by Rebekah

I thought this self-tanner smells much better than most. It sets to a nice color that isn't too much for someone with my lily-white complexion. I had very few areas of streaking and that was primarily because I was in a hurry.
