Rash on neck
I started developing a rash on my neck it was itchy, dry, bumpy felt like i had blisters, ive never had a reaction to anything before, It was defo the garnier summer body that did it! And after still applying E45 cream to it its still dry after 3 weeks and still have the rash! Will never use again. Do not recommend.
Wish I had read the reviews before using this, I also came out in a awful sore bumpy rash in the creases of my elbows and back of my knees. Really sore won't be using again. This there should be a warning for this on the bottle.

I loved the tan this product gave me but unfortunately I have now had developed the same problem as a lot of other people....very itchy and angry rash on my throat and in creases of my elbow. I obviously won’t be able to carry on using it.

Best tanning moisturizer ever!!
I love this product. I am extremely fair and don't tan naturally so have found it hard to find a nice and natural tanning cream that doesn't look fake. This not only gives me a natural soft tan but also moisturizes which is great at 50. My Teenage son pinches it to put on his face and loves it too. You are in control of the intensity simply by using more or less. Make sure to exfoliate first and if a little too dark in one area simply give a good rub with an old towel after the shower. I have been using this for at least 2 years.
DO NOT BUY!
On my first application I developed a severe rash on the creases of my elbows and the backs of my knees, it lasted for days, very painful, I don’t dare use it again

Do NOT use if you have sensitive skin!!!
I was happy to try this product as it states it's suitable for sensitive skin. At first i loved it as it applied nicely, and didn't smell bad, however I have come out in an awful looking, painful rash. I look after my skin so well due to it's sensitivity, i always keep my skin clean and moisturised and have never had a reaction like this from any other tanning product. Please be careful if you are thinking of using this product, and test a small patch of skin first!!

I have used this tanning lotion for about 5 years. I'm a fair to medium skinned aussie - the colour you get is just beautiful. Noone would ever know it's fake. In Australia this costs about $5-$6 a bottle from Chemist Warehouse - one bottle does at least 2 full body tans, sometimes 3. But i use a lot. It's foolproof - unlike fake tan, this is just a white moisturizer - you slather it everywhere, body, face, neck - everything. Takes about 20 minutes to apply it all but i take my time. The best thing about this is, unlike coloured fake tanner, it...s just a white cream, so it goes into all your wrinkles, lines, on your hands, everywhere, so the colour you get looks phenomenal! It looks 100% natural. I use this ONCE, and i'm beautifully tanned for about 4 days. It fades easy too. I have another $70 tanning mousse - this gives a easier and better colour than the $70 one! And so moisturizing! It smells like apricot - it does develop with that fake tan biscuity smell - but they all do. And it's not bad. TIP - If you are pale as all hell and want a subtle quick colour, or just can't be bothered, get out of the shower, dry off, apply it all over, wait just 2 hours, then shower off - even with body wash - you will look super pale again, but waitttttt - you will wake up the next day with a lovely light tan that looks like you spent the weekend in the sun! Even after you wash it off with body wash! I was stunned. I cannot stand sleeping in anything like fake tan ect, so i usually put it on at 7pm, wash it off about 10pm, and i have a medium lovely tan for about 4 days. It's foolproof, EASY, moisturizing, and SOOOO CHEAP. $3 a tan?? It's better than a salon fake tan!

Don’t use - burns skin
I applied this to my face and body and noticed next day the skin on my eye lids felt like it was burnt. My eyes swollen and the creases in my eye lids dry and cracked. Very scary as I have never had sensitive skin to anything. I went searching to see if anyone else had similar reactions and found these similar cases. Cannot believe a product like this can be sold to public. Imagine if I had had sensitive skin!
Have used this product before with no problem, easy to apply, lovely scent, had really good results first few times I used it. Apart from staining my white bras lol. However my most recent used caused me to break out in hot itchy rather fierce red rashes on my elbow creases and all around my neck and chest. The rashes would last around a week and would itch, sting and weep. I will not be using this product again. Please be careful! If you have the same problem go to the doctors immediately and dispose of this product!
Not to be trusted...
I have a skin that tans easily, but I thought I’d give this product a try. I am in my early fifties, so want to prevent further sun damage. It is easy to apply and I noticed an almost immediate difference. It looked lovely and natural. I used it a couple of times without any negative effects, but my most recent application caused me to break out in a red rash in both of my elbow creases. It is not itchy, but has lasted for days. I have never had a skin rash, so this was quite scary. I will never use this product again.
Patchy and orange
I bought this expecting it to be great and it was the exact opposite! It keeps getting darker, very VERY streaky and worst of all orange! Do not buy! It doesn’t rub off either so you’re going to be stuck with a patchy orange body and face! Don’t let the cheap price fool you.
