Not a good it for my face
By All Paula C All The Time
from Gorham, ME
I use only Paula's Choice Products on my face, hands, and body. I tried this concentrate in my evening moisture. In the morning, I had uneven tanning. On the dark spots of my face the skin was dry and patchy look. I thought it smelled like all other self tanners. Bad. Even in the morning when I washed my face I smelled it. I was hoping to find a safe and effective way to have a tan look to my face without the sun exposure. This product isn't the one for me.

from Chicago, il
I can honestly say that I've applied this daily and see no change in color whatsoever. I do like the concept however I wish it would work. What I miss is the almost the real thing tanning gel. I love that stuff and stocked up on it when they had it. I sure wish they would get that back. This is not effective at all, And while the concept is great if it doesn't work, then it's not so great.

About Me Beauty Conscious
I was really excited to try this product, but I didn't end up liking it. I added it to the Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator and I think it made my skin more greasy. I think it made my skin look kind of orange. I also found that it would sometimes build up along my hairline and I'd wake up with kind of orange-brown flakes on the area around my temples/hair line. I'm not sure if I was overly zealous and used too much, but the color and build-up along my hairline were not attractive. It's a shame, because Jergen's tinted lotion makes me break-out, so I really wish this product worked better.

Like this Product
I liked this product. I did not think it smelled much at all - contrary to other comments. I liked that I could use it with regular moisturizer - less drying that way. I have some sun spots and other self-tanners make these spots very dark, this did not do that. I thought it lasted a long time and wore off very gradually. I will definitely buy again!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My Must Have Product
I love this product! This is the only self-tanning product I have used that is truly satisfactory for my sensitive skin. I have had no adverse reactions. I use it on my legs and find it works best only if I use Cetaphil moisturizing lotion before or after. I believe the mineral oil in other lotions diminishes the effectiveness of this product. If I gently massage the product into my skin I find that it produces an even coloring.

About Me Budget Buyer
I use this product about 3 days a week. I mix it into my Resist daytime moisturizer then apply as usual. It is so easy! Others have mentioned the smell. I don't notice any smell once it is mixed and certainly not when it's absorbed. It leaves a really nice natural tan. When I use it I find I don't need to use my liquid foundation. I just use a little of the Resist setting powder to finish the look.I love this self tanning product & I haven't seen anything like it except one product that is strangely creamy & almost like foundation. I really appreciate that this self tanner. is much easier to use!Paula please never discontinue the Sun 365 Self-tanning concentrate!

Zero difference. And I do mean zero. I have fair skin and live in Chicago (minimum sun) so I figured this would be a great way to fake a little color. Have used two tubes. Nothing.... and I followed directions exactly. Eating an orange gave me more glow than this...

Foam version is much better
from Chicago, IL.
It didn't give my much color, except in areas where my skin is drier. It stuck to those spots, making it really orange and which made my 'tan' not even or natural looking. I liked the idea of mixing it with a moisturizer, so at least you can skip a step. But next time I will definitely be buying the foam one instead. Way more effective, at least for me!

Still Smells Bad =(
I think I had unrealistic expectations for this. I really thought it would have no self-tanner smell at all but it does. It definitely isn't the worst I've smelled, and I think self-tanner smells particularly bad on me but I just really can't stand the smell of self-tanner, even a little bit. If you don't have much of a problem with that then this is a really cool and innovative product. I have very fair skin and it looks like a very realistic, golden tan on me. I also love that you can mix it with anything and it doesn't affect your skin. I'll probably pass it to a friend or something.
