Additional Information

Why is it different?
SUN 365 Self-Tanning Concentrate packs a high percentage of DHA—a well-researched tanning ingredient—into an odor-free, water-light formula. A few drops is all it takes to turn your favorite face or body moisturizer into a customized self-tanner, giving skin a natural-looking, long-lasting tan without exposing it to the sun’s damaging rays (keep in mind: this self-tanner is not a sunscreen).

What does it do?
You’re in complete control of how much color you get. Want a little color? Add one-half to one pump to your moisturizer. Want a deeper tan? Add another few pumps, and in a few hours your customized tan transforms your skin from drab to fab!
Collapse
How to use
    Dispense moisturizer into the palm of your hand, and then add 2-3 pumps of the concentrate for a medium tan result. Apply the mixture evenly and smoothly, one area at a time. Wash hands thoroughly to avoid tan palms and cuticles. Wait 10-15 minutes for the skin to completely dry before dressing. Color should develop within 1–3 hours. Full results are visible in 24-48 hours.

    Please Please Please don't remove this amazing self-tanner. It is such a unique self-tanning product. It delivers consistently great color without any of the guesswork. I think people would be less scared of self-tanners if they experienced more like this. I've had so many disasters with other brands and so many unpleasant surprises. Please tell your customers where they can find something comparable if you are going to phase out this amazing product. I am so sad aboutt his.

      This product is amazing! Jergen's bronzing lotion breaks me out, so I love that I can add it to my favorite moisturizer (Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator). I also like that I have control over how much to use, so that I can add more to look darker during sunny summer days.

      I'm sooooo disappointed! Please don't discontinue this product, or at least offer a similar substitute!!

          I've been using this for two years and love it. At first I used it with Jergen's tanning lotion because I liked the color the two mixed together gave, (then I realized using with a body lotion daily worked just as well) I used it with lotions I wanted to get rid of, Now I use it exclusively with my favorite body lotions that are animal cruelty free. I would continue to use it even if Jergen's became cruelty free, which they are not. The color is rich, stays on and does not stain my towels when drying off from a shower. Not the three hour color change if you are in a hurry, but with daily use it builds nicely and stays, I use 4 drops with my lotion daily, then once it reaches the color I want, I drop down to twice a week and the color stays fresh looking.

          The only reason I gave this two stars instead of one is because I felt like my spf went on easier when I mixed this in, but my face turned yellow. It looked like I had jaundice. I'm going back to Jergens even though it irritates my skin.

          Disappointed

            Best Uses

              I had high hopes for the self tanning concentrate since I really like the Foam Self Tanner by Paula. I used it according to directions, but it did completely nothing. No tan, no color at all. I like the concept of mixing it with lotion for a moisturizing and self-tanning effect, but this product did not work, even when I tried adding more drops. Returned it and will stick with the foam.... Too bad the customer has to pay for return shipping when dissatisfied with a product.

              This was my first Paula's Choice product...Hopefully the next one will suit me better! I am not giving up on the brand. I love her books and all her knowledge.

                  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.

                    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.

                    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.
