Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Giselle2712 Skeptical at first
So for the past few weeks I have been trying to find the right self tanner to use since my professional mystic tan faded. I decided I was going to order the St. Tropez foam and be done with it. However I went to my local CVS last Friday night after work (searching for a shampoo) and came across the MicroMistÂ® Airbrush Sunless Tan. I was frantically trying to youtube reviews on this since it was Memorial Day weekend and I didn't want to end up looking like an Oompa Lumpa (probably spelled that wrong# anyway I couldn't find anything but I took a chance since I use Nuetrogena face products and they are great but I was still nervous on how this would turn out or if the mist was more like a spray or something I would have to rub in which would cause the streaking. They had two models one was 2 shades darker and the other was 3 shades darker then your current skin color. so I purchased the 2 shades darker just in case.
I followed the procedures I would have had to follow if I went to a professional, took a shower, exfoliated and put lotion on my feet, knees, elbows, wrist and used gloves on my hands to avoid orange palms. And I sprayed away #it was definitely a fine mist just like a professional spray would be# I sprayed it everywhere lightly #used the whole can btw) and waited till it dried. It did feel sticky and weird in between the drying time but it went away as soon as it did. It didn't smell bad neither..... until later on lol but it wasn't so bad
later on in the evening I noticed the color and it was a VERY natural looking tan NO ORANGE at all honestly it was unbelievable!! I kept raving about it that I never ever actually rated something or gave a review and I had to do it with this one! definitely recommend, I will however say that when I went back to CVS I went to purchase the gradual lotion self tanner and that came me an orange look so I do not recommend the lotion but the mist is awesome.

If this review had an option to put zero stars I would. I woke up awaiting my sunless tan and was angryf to find I looked like a diseased umpaloompa. I am furious and oh guess what... it won't come off! its literally in the 90s all this week and I have to wear long jeans and a long sleeve shirt to hide this sad excuse for a tan. DO NOT USE!!!!!

The product works well. I use the tanner once a week throughout the spring and summer months. When I use it, everyone tells me that I have a natural glow!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by tess27 LOVE IT! just ran out and headed to buy more!
I love this! Easy to use. No Mess. Dries Fast!
This is the first product i've ever used that lives up to the description on the packaging and actually, in the end I'm even more pleased with it than i had expected to be!
I have tried other tanners that you gradually build your tan and this you can do that with as well but, when it says you see results within 2-4 hrs they MEAN IT! and being an american i'm a big fan of instant gratification!
it doesn't look fake, streaky, orange, or anything!
just looks great!
i dont stick with the lotions i use whatever is in my bag or car or office so they dont really do much for my color. but this does! i will buy two at a time now :)

Does any body know if this washes off in the shower?and how often do you have to apply it?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Jessica Defective Nozzle
I know that these aren't the best quality spray tans, but sometimes this does just fine. Why not this particular product?
The nozzle gets stuck! It's not a pressure problem in the can - it's definitely the mechanics of the nozzle. It came out well the first time, but when I wanted to reapply a week later the nozzle wouldn't go down. I even disassembled the button from the actual valve and made sure it was clear.
Now I have to waste over half the can - around $7. That's just terrible. I won't be buying this again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Sara Kate Bradfield Perfect for the face!
I bought this product to use on my face, (For whatever reason, my face always manages to be a few shades lighter than the rest of my body), and It is spectacular!!! I bought the medium 2 shades darker can and it works flawlessly. Spray the product in your hands and apply like you would a moisturizer. Wait a few hours and you will see a results.
If you're worried about discoloration or "streaks" on your face, I recommend getting a shade lighter than you would normally would, you can gradually add more as needed. Bottom line- this product rocks. I've got sensitive skin and have struggled with acne for years. This product is the only self tanner I've used that has not left behind an oily residue. It also makes my makeup look flawless! I'd recommend this to ANYONE who needs a little boost in color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by ambernickle2 Won't try anything else.
I have used the product in the past and had great results. I have a very hard time letting the sun on my skin because I burn so easy, but the is my magic in a can.
I love that it's a spray so you know you aren't putting too much on (unless you just hold the can there), the smell is that you CAN deal with, and if you put it on in a well lit room you can see where you have sprayed.
I like this product because it is something that is very affordable and the tan is gradual. As long as you apply once a day, and build your tan up, you shouldn't have any problems. I always find myself starting off with the number two can for winter and building up to the number three for summer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by alli Couldnt even get it to work
I bought this product while visiting California. It sounded amazing, unfortunately it was a complete waste of money as the nozzle would not spray! I tried loosening it under hot water, shaking it, etc but no luck. VERY disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by AbbyM107 Easy, affordable, Great!
I love this stuff! A good exfoliation and completely dry before use and you will be happy with your tan! I have never had a blotch or a streak. Follow the instructions and you shouldn't have a problem. I usually let the product dry on my skin for 10-15 minutes before getting dressed or into bed and I haven't had any problems with transfer. Would recommend it to everyone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Product
I have gone through two full cans without any problems. The smell is not bad at all especially compared to other self tanners I have tried. I would recommend this product to anyone! I get all angles of my legs, arms, and chest.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by norard11 Not What It's Advertised To Be
The concept is a great idea. A natural tan from a spray can that can reach all parts of the body. The reality is that most of the cans that are purchased have defective spray caps; and if they don't start that way-they end up that way. No matter how precise you spray over body; the tan that develops is a film that forms on the skin surface and transfers onto everything. Shower with a delicate soap and most of the tan washes away leaving your skin horribly blotched and streaked (mind you that skin was completely exfoliated prior to applications.)
The bottom line is: this is not a tanning product, but rather a spray on stain of the poorest quality.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Heyyyyy12345 LUNGS ACHE!
Good color but it streaks sooooo bad! The worst part is that this product made my asthma go crazy! The first time I used this my chest felt tight but then the feeling went away so I went to bed thinking it wasn't a huge deal. I woke up and my lungs felt horrible all day! Like I was sick! I think the smell is just too strong for someone with asthma or sensitive skin! USE PRECAUTION! DONT INHALE!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Soontobemrsb MY SKIN IS SO SOFT
i have used this product several times. and really feel like it gives me a natural glow. My only complaint with the product is that every bottle I ever get, I have a difficult time pressing the spray cap which sometimes causes uneven look on my skin due to the mist not coming out continuously.
Other than that, I really like the product. If you are fair skin, like myself, the Medium tone is perfect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by dani8976 Easy, clean, a little on the light side
*Sprays are way easier and FASTER than lotions
*No streaks (some blotching though but I fixed it with some hydrogen peroxide)
*Works on face
*Smell is better than other tanners I've tried
*No dye means it feels cleaner (though there is a flip side to this, see below)
*Good sun kissed color
*I got the "deep" version and I barely notice a difference. I am freckly with light skin.
*You can't tell where you've sprayed because there is no dye in it
*The nozzle is very hard to push down which is what caused some blotching. Not streaking though like I get with lotions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Jo999 Loved this product!
This product worked great for me! I just wanted a subtle tan for the beginning of summer and that is exactly what I got! I do not look orange at all, which I was very afraid of, and it was very easy to apply. I found that I was tanner within 4 hours but the next day was when it really kicked in. My skin look fairly even except in one spot where I held it to long. The nozzle is difficult and you have to press hard, but overall I am very pleased and will be repurchasing.

Have been using this for years. Love the product but wont buy anymore due to spray nozzle failure. Wasted 3 or 4 cans already. I found another product to replace it, but still would go back if packaging was replaced. First thought it was a random can but each one since has failed also. Seems like summer 2011 is when it started. I have recommended to all my friends but they have same problem.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by Miznpal57 dissatisfied so far...
I was so eager to try this. I had a coupon for $ 1.50 off so that was even better. I followed the website directions exactly and, yes they are different than on the can. The day after my first spray I had blotches, streaks & light areas. Not having much luck getting the bad areas off, I thought I could blend them with a makeup remover wipe ( as directed on the web site ), but that didn't work. I did my face twice per directions on the can with no change in my face color. I will give it one more try & that's it. I bought the med. & I am not orange thank God !! No problem with the nozzle or spray button. I just can't seem to find a self tanned that really works well. Any suggestions ?? And how do I get rid of these stains & blotches ???

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by RLY12 Doesn't Work
If I could rate this lower than 1 star, I would. The good news, I guess, is that I didn't have any streaks, blotches, or unwanted orange color. The bad news is, it did absolutely NOTHING. No color. Total waste of money, don't bother with this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by SecretReview2 I'm Orange !
I tested this product on my feet first to see the color and first of all this product does dry in 5 minutes but takes about an hour to develop the actual color. After an hour my feet are now orange! And the smell that comes in this product is very strong and it still smells! It smells like nail polish remover. I would not* buy this product ever again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by NCtan not for really fair skin!
I have extremely fair skin and even though my arms and back will tan out, my legs pick up no color. I bought this hoping to even out my body for the summer (hello swimming pool!) but it didn't work as well as advertised. It splotched when following the can directions, which, by the way, are different than the directions on the website, and looked woorse after a second application. I alleviated this a bit by rubbing over-dark areas with a damp cloth with a sprinkle of baking soda. it is, however, more natural in color than Neutrogena's tanning lotions
. I am going to stick it out for another few weeks, but I am not impressed. However, it does work great for my friends with medium to dark skin tones.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by AngryWifesHubby airbrush quality fine mist?? NOT!!
Last night I sprayed my wife"s back with this stuff. As all the other reviews stated the nozzle was hard to push. The foamy stuff that sprayed out was not even close to a mist. This morning she looks like she has some kind of disease. The bathroom still stinks and my wife is furious with me since it was my idea. Its a good thing I didn't spray her whole body!!!

I have just started using this a couple weeks ago, along with laying out in the sun and I love it. It isn't even summer yet and I already have an "end of the summer" tan! Yes, there has been a problem with the nozzle, but you just can't be hesistant to press it and be ready! Also, I don't see an orangey tint, which I was nerovus about since this is one of the first times I've used self tanner.
