About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about SUN 365 Self-Tanning Concentrate - 0.5 oz:
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!
About Me Brand Buyer
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...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.

I love this product!! I was using st. tropez's face tanner and it constantly clogged my pores and broke me out. This does not!! Beware the color does not show up for a little while after you apply it! But the color looks so natural and pretty. I look like I just got done sun bathing once the color sets in. And it doesn't wash off!! I use a cleanser and BHA exfoliant and it still lasts for days. I mix it with my PC moisturizer every morning and love the way it makes me glow. :) haven't tried it on my body yet but soon to!

New Holy Grail for a self-tanning vet
from New York, NY
I was SO happy to find this because I have used self-tanner daily on my face for years (as using BHA and Retin A my fake tan will fade on face much more quickly than on body).This blends well and shows up eventually. No tanning product looks completely natural if you use a lot but this is as good as nearly all the other brands I've compared over the past 8 years I've been using self-tanner on my face.They say everyone's skin is a little different and personally I'd love if the team tried adding erythrulose to mix with the DHA because I like the color that personally gives me (a bit more brown than orange), but I can't find a fragrance-free product with it. For more info on these active ingredients, google sunless911.blogspot.com/2013/12/is-erythrulose-better-then-dha-inI also like that I can use 3 pumps some days, 2 pumps others.

I am so surprised more companies are not selling tan concentrates. This product allows me to maintain my normal skincare routine but add a little boost if I am feeling a pale. Just one pump in my evening facial moisturizer and in the morning I wake up with the most natural glow.Yes it smells slightly, but its not awful. DHA-based formulations will always have a smell, but I would prefer this than the product to be loaded with fragrance as I use this on my sensitive facial skin.This is the first Paulas Choice product I have bought and I am super impressed.

Didn't do anything for me
By Fountain of Youth
I used this every day for over a month and I did not notice any additional color in my face. I read all of the reviews and followed recommendations, but nothing.
