Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for fair skin! I am VERY fair and within two applications I was already as tan as I hoped to be. The first application I did with just my hands and some streaks appeared, then the next time I used a sponge gloved and the tan was even! Jul 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product... I have been using this sunless tanning lotion for years. I had tried a few others n the past but like this one the best. You scared me though... They were out of stock in all the stores where I normally buy it and I was afraid you stopped making it so just in case I ordered three bottles on line. I am glad to see it is restocked in the stores again. Jun 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent sunless tanner I have used many different products and have found the Neutrogena Build-a-Tan Sunless lotion to be the best product on the market. This has the most natural look of any other product and it goes on easily and gives you a healthy tan look without the danger of the sun's rays. I would recommend it to anyone. Jun 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this product!! This product is awesome..I needed something to help my legs looks the same as my arms and face and this did it. I garden alot so being out in the sun for some reason my arms always get tanned. I love the subtle scent of the lotion. A little goes a long way. Easy to apply, no gloves needed. My skin is smooth and moisturized so I don't need to put on additional lotion. May 21, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quickly develops I used this product only a few days because the tan developed within an hour however after 3 days of use spot on my neck became blotchy but that's expected with any self tanner. Tan lasts a week and it actually has a good smell compared to other lotions I've used. May 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sensitive skin, and it's great! I have very sensitive skin, I'm fair, and I'm acne prone. I also have psoriasis and ketosis polaris and I've been using this for years and it's NEVER been an issue for me. Great for a ginger like me! Never even streaks! Jun 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very disappointed!! I haven't used sunless tanners in quite a few years and have heard that they have gotten better. Apparently not!! First day was Very blotchy to say the least, second day not so blotchy but still very orange and rusty, applied again the third day and it did look somewhat better until I went swimming for about five minutes, got out of the water and was totally white, with some rusty spots left!! Horrible waste of my money. And DO not use this with sunblock as it will just "melt" away and instantly turn rusty looking! May 28, 2014
