I have been using this product for three years running, I still have the same bottle from the year before and it seems to last and last. I find it really excellent on my skin, giving me the perfect bronzed look I am after. I find I need to apply it about three nights in a row for a full on tan but if you just want a glow then one night is sufficient. I went to a party just the other night and I was constantly asked if I 'd been sunbathing and when I told them that it was fake they complemented me on how realistic it is and where could they buy it too! I must admit last week I did buy the spray version to try and compare to the cream. I found the spray was a lot nicer to use (the effect was the same) it seemed to soak up a lot faster and so you can get on with doing things. Also the cream has a stronger fragrance where as the spray is quite light. The spray however runs out a lot faster, I bought it for £3.00 so careful where you get it. PIZ BUIN Self-Tan helps develop a tan that can last up to 7 days. However, if your tan looks uneven, this is because the top layers of skin are sloughing off at different rates. For even and uniform colour they suggest you reapply the self-tanner every 3-4 days, remembering to exfoliate well each time. I would definitely recommend this self-tanner; I always make sure to rub it in hard and in a circular motion to avoid any streaks. I have never had orange streaks or an uneven tan with this product but it can be a little greasy to use, its all worth it though.
After watching an advertisement for PIZ Buin jet bronzer on television, the lady just wiped it on (whilst wearing white clothes) and that was it, it looked so simple and easy to do, looking down at my pale legs and complexion, I thought right this is it, and I went out and bought it from my local Boots. I was excited at putting it on and looking like I had been away on holiday, i applied the tan firstly to my legs and then finished with my arms, and I waited, the next morning I awoke hoping to see a healthy glowing tan, but no, I was orange it was all streaky down my legs and it look like somebody had painted me orange (dont get me wrong I didnt apply to much) i followed all the instructions. My body was covered in this complete patchy mess, and instead of showing off what I thought would be a tan, i had to cover up with a long sleeved top and pants and keep socks on so that nobody could see this orangeness, and then every night I would try to scrub it off (but to no avail) it took about a week and a half to fully come off, it was on my clothes and everywhere, yet on the advert, it shows women wearing white and just smearing the cream on!!!!!! I would definately not recommend this product to anybody - unless you are brave enough to see what a mess it makes, I think I will just stick to Pale and loving it.
I have used many different makes of fake tan, but this is the worst of the lot. Recommended by a friend, I applied the product evenly to avoid streaking, but I ended up with orange and white stripy arms and legs. I had to stay covered up to avoid everyone laughing at my expense, and it was the middle of summer! The worse thing was, that normally products fade too quickly and you keep on having to re-apply it, but this mess wouldn't shift for nearly two weeks, despite hours of scrubbing in the shower! Thank God I didn't use it just before I went on holiday because it would have ruined it, with me looking like a freak! I thought that because I was paying through the nose for it, it would be effective. Not so. It is a bad product masked by a semi-respectable name. The product smells funny, but worse, it makes you look extremely funny! So beware! I suppose that different products work better for different skin types/shades, but this is a definite no-no for the fairer-skinned ladies out there!!
Piz Buin Jet bronzer is my product of choice when on holiday because it has a 'holiday' smell which might not be great for the UK. It is quite greasy and is a yellow colour which would certainly mark clothes if in contact with them. It last for ages as you don't need to put much on and the end result is a great deep colour. It is more moisturizing than other products and it glossy without being shimmery. While it does have downsides it is definitely one for the holiday case when you don't mind looking a bit 'oiled'.
This product proves once and for all that you can't always expect quality simply because you are paying through the nose. This facial fake tan is the worst I've used. It smells (no kidding) like toilet cleaner. My boyfriend (who loves the smell of everything I use) asked me to wash my face at it was so minging! The consistency is pretty vile - a greasy, gel-like cream. My normally dry skin broke out in spots in ONE DAY. The packaging is of course stylish but so what? This product let me down and I threw it out after a couple of goes.
