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..

this Is the product if you want a delicate tan


I’ve been a fake tanner for years. I stumbled across moo goo cream and was sooo impressed that I’ve bought several different products including the self tanner. I’m quite fair with pink undertones....living among a family that tans to cinnamon colour in the bat of an eye....unfair but c’est la vie!!

If you are looking for a subtle tan to take away the starkness of your white skin, this is the one. The easiest tan to apply. No fake tan smell and you wake up to soft and subtle skin....not like some tanners which try your skin. Highly recommend if you only want subtle colour. Very natural!!

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.

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.

Tried a sample, now want a bottle


I got a little sample size of this from work, and tried it out. The smell was a bit funky initially, but once that disappears it leaves a really nice tan. I only applied it once, and was happy with the resulting colour. I would recommend using this sparingly, as I do feel multiple applications would give you that orange hew however. But would definitely recommend, as it holds up in the shower and looks good!

natural bronze glow


Aside from the funky smell and this clammy feel ( that all self tanner seem to have), the colour is sensational. it darkened my skin about two shade after one application and then an additional shade after three. it wont get you really dark but it does make a difference even to pale skin. loved it!

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?

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