      As I am pale skinned, red haired and freckle easily by nature, I have never been one to tan well in the sun. Therefore I have been a big fan of sunless tanning products for a long time. I often try different ones. Not all sunless tanning products are the same, some are great while others leave something to be desired. One of the better ones is Neutrogena Build a Tan Gradual Sunless Tanning.

      This is a light lotion that lets you control the intensity of the tan. With every application it provides just a touch of color, allowing you to gradually deepen the tan as you wish, or keep it lighter if you prefer. This sunless tanner takes about five minutes to dry and comes in a handy plastic bottle equipped with a pump.

      To use, it is suggested to exfoliate your skin first. Spread the lotion evenly onto clean skin. Make sure to apply only small amounts to knees, elbows,


      knuckles and ankles. Rub in completely. Be sure to wash hands in warm, soapy water directly after applying. It is necessary to wait at least an hour before getting wet, i.e, swimming, showering, etc. after application.

      It will take from one to two hours for the color to develop and it will last for several days. To obtain darker color, simply reapply. It is recommended that you wait at least eight hours between applications for the best results. It should be noted that this product does not contain any sunscreen.

      I mostly use this tanner in the winter time. This product works well, but takes about four hours for the color to develop on me after each application. Due to this, I can not build up a real deep tan as quickly as I can with some other sunless tanning products. However, I do like it for in the winter time as I still don’t wish to be ghostly white but

      feel that a lighter looking tan looks more natural on me in the winter then a darker one.

      I use this lotion all over. It is very easy to apply and you don’t need much to cover a large area. This product is applied just the same as any regular body lotion. As with most sunless tanners, there is no way to see where you’ve applied it, however, the color that develops is very light and building a darker tan with this is very gradual so getting the streaky look with this is not likely, therefore you need not worry to much.

      After applying this product you will need to wait a few minutes before dressing as it does take a little bit of time to dry. However, this is not a big issue for me. Also this product does not moisturize well so if you have dry skin you may want to apply a moisturizer after this product has dried. It ...

      is important with this, as with most any sunless tanner, that you do not forget to wash your hands immediately after applying as failure to do so could result in orange colored palms, particularly if you reapply a lot from product buildup on your hands.

      To achieve a light, natural looking golden color, only a few applications are necessary and this can be achieved in just two or three days. The color usually last for a little over a week for me before I need to start over again from there. However, if you are looking to get a deep, dark tan color, it will take several more applications/days to achieve such a look with this product as the color is very light and gradual. Hence the reason I prefer this particular sunless tanner for a light, tan glow, rather then for summer when I want a much more dramatic effect in a shorter time.

      In summary, Neutrogena Build a Tan Gradual

      Sunless Tanning Lotion is a pretty good product. Each application gives you just a touch of natural looking, streak free, tan glow. The color that develops is very light and building a tan with this is very gradual so for this reason I prefer this sunless tanning product for wintertime color when a lighter tan looks more natural. This product could be used to create a more dramatic, deeper, summer like tan, however to achieve such a look with this product would take several applications over the course of several days. Therefore this may not be the best sunless tanner for a summertime tan look, but it is excellent for winter. It is easy to apply and easy to control and achieve the tan look you want with this product. It does take a few minutes to dry so you will have to wait a bit before getting dressed after applying, but other then that, this is a good product.
