Very Disappointed


I had high hopes for this as I was looking for something Natural for my Daughters Wedding..I applied it on my arms after following advice how to prepare my skin and allowed it to dry..It gave me a red rash all over my arms..Very disappointed..I won't be trying other products..

Purchased in September 2021.

Bought this tan as heard so many good reviews for people with eczema and so many fans have irritated my skin. Tan was easy to apply and a nice even colour but still made my skin red and itchy. Won't be using this again.

OMG My legs are on fire...used it last night and they are getting more itchy as the day goes on. Was assured that this would not happen. Not happy Jan!!


Moo Goo have been in contact with me. They very nicely have said that would refund. Thanks Moo Goo....great customer service!!!

Oompah loompah.


After 2 applications there was very little difference, but after 3 applications in a 5 day period I am orange. I have used other Moogoo products and found them lovely, sadly this one did not live up to my expectations.

Average, was expecting more from a wonderful company.


Read a few reviews online regarding this product so I was eager to try it. I use several other moogoo products and have never been disappointed. Well until now. I liked the quick application time- just like applying moisturiser. The product didn't smell too bad when applying, but I could smell it on me for the next couple of days despite showering. The usual fake tan smell. I also love that it's all natural and nothing nasty. It was the colour that developed that I was least impressed with. Turned a strange yellowey colour, even after applying a few days in a row. Not impressed, especially when I was expecting a lovely golden brown :(

I haven’t noticed a difference between the colour of my freckles with or without the product?


Do I have to exfoliate before every time I use it?

1 answer

I think it pays to, and I make sure to put a little moisturizer on my knees and ankles before applying
