Good but not for sensitive skin

I really liked this product because it not only gave me the tanned color I was looking for, it also helped moisturize my skin. I would continue to use this if not for my sensitive skin type :( Due to my sensitive skin I got some allergies after using this. Not for my skin type but definitely a good product for those whose skin is not as sensitive as mine.

good to have on-hand!

this is great for when you've gone a little pale and your skin needs a pick-me-up. i always have one of these for emergencies. it'll give you a nice gradual tan, but it is a little sticky for the first hour or so.

It can easily be absorbed by my skin, I can see the result in as early as 3 hours but I find it so sticky on my skin.
