I mix the Jan Marini self tanner with my regular body lotion. This gives a more natural look and develops at a slower pace. Will purchase again.
Good for people with fair skin
I have used almost every self tanner out there. This takes a few days of application before the color builds up. It is not an instant tan, but it also doesn't have the instant fake tan colors that rub off on your clothes.It is a white lotion, and if you are accustomed to applying tanner, you will know that it should be applied sparingly and uniformly, avoiding rough areas like ankles and elbows. It takes a little more care to apply evenly, because there is no color to the product to help guide you. There is a very slight odor, which dissipates. Unlike every other tanner I have ever used, this is the most acceptable from an olfactory sense. Most self tanners have a strong odor I can't stand. So if you are willing to be patient for color to develop, and painstaking in your application of the product (be sure to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after), and have fair to light skin, this is theproduct for you. I would also add that many self tanners hav a drying effect on the skin.. To my delight, this product does not appear to dry out the skin as others do.
