Neutrogena was a cheap sunless tanning lotion. I got it at Target for less than $7.00. It works good for the price, however it does streak. There is no strong smell to it, and the drying time is about 10-15 minutes. I wish it worked a lot better.
Regarding any skin reactions, it was mostly isolated – on my neck and other sensitive parts like my thighs. There were patches of redness that lasted 3 days max.
I cracked and went to Sephora. I picked up Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel. Why? Because there was a special. Original price of this squeeze bottle is $33.00. It got it for $35.00 with an exfolitating lotion and a liquid bronzer plus a carry case. Yes I got suckered in by the carry case. Who wouldn’t be?
How well did the Instant Gel work? Pretty good. I was really surprised. There was no patchy redness and the scent was really pleasing. That is until my husband asked me “Why are you feet different colors?” I looked down at my feet in ballet flats and noticed that it was streaked tan and my pale skin. I just told him the truth, “I guess I need to practice applying the tanning lotion more.”
Is there a Sunless Tannning Lotion you used with no problems?
