Finally a fragrance free tanner!!!

published

I LOVE this product. Firstly, I am very sun conscious, so wear alot of sunscreen etc and am pale. I don't want to sun tan, but have very sensitive skin where everything I use needs to be strictly fragrance and EO free. I've been searching for a fragrance free tanner and finally found moogoo how now brown cow by ingredients is fragrance free. It goes on nicely, I need to blend it well, but it dries so quick, no smell or very slight which fades and a nice natural subtle tan that takes away my stark pale colour. Thanks so much moogoo, please don't add any fragrance to this.

Purchased in March 2021 at Terry White Chemists for $13.99.

Best gradual self tanner around!

published

Just found this after trying and being unhappy with about 10 gradual self tanners over the years. All of them either small, leave streaks, are tricky to use or give in uneven result unless u spend a lot of time.
This product is quick & simple to use and gives a fab result and beautiful even natural colour that lasts well.

Purchased in December 2020.

Amazing

published

Thank you so much MooGoo. I have been looking for a good self tan for years. I suffer from very dry skin and Eczema and all fake tans would leave my skin looking very patchy and sore. This product has kept my skin so soft still and does not streak or leave patches where I have dry skin. I 100% recommend this if you suffer from sensitive skin. The tan is also very natural and does not make you look orange, it goes on very easily (I use a mit) and doesn't take long to sink in. I will be buying more!

The best product ever put on the market for sensitive skin - tans and moisturisers slowly and naturally.

published

Just apply after a shower daily (as you would any other moisturiser). The cream massages in easily and whilst the tan is subtle, you skin is nourished and excellent for sensitive skin types. I love it and have been using it for years. I must say I only use it from about September to November and then from March to May when my white legs and arms are exposed.

Purchased at Local Pharmacy for $12.00.

A really great product - very happy with results

published

I was really keen to try this brand’s tan lotion - I’m really pleased with the results after only using it for a week or so and every second day. It is really easy to apply but on my skin does seem to make knees darker. The smell isn’t offensive and much nicer than the other smells of tanning lotions! It dries quickly and does leave a nice, natural colour.

GREAT NATURAL TAN

published

Moo Goo How Now Brown Cow tanning cream is the best and being natural is a must for me. Goes on easy. You don’t need much. A little smelly but that quickly goes away. My 17 year old daughter who is very fair used it too and was very impressed. Nice sunkissed tan for us both after one application.
My family use Moo Goo sunscreen too and love it.
Thanks Moo Goo!!

Natural glow

published

I love this cream!! I’ve only ever applied one layer at a time and it gives a nice natural healthy glow. Never streaky and doesn’t smell as strong as some others I’ve used (still a smell though). As with all sunless tanners you do need to let it dry before putting on clothes and I usually apply before bed and then by the morning I’m nice and tanned. I love that it’s natural!!

Nice colour, easy to use

published

It's always a gamble trying a new tanning product in case you turn out looking Trump orange, but MooGoo has created a great natural product that produces a lovely brown colour. I do need 3 or 4 applications to get the desired colour, but that's okay as it's easy to apply - just like a moisturiser. Doesn't take too long to dry and leaves a really nice, not fake-looking tan.

Love this product

published

I have used the small sample tube and loved the result going to order the full size. I have very dry sensitive skin and havn't had any reaction what so ever. I found my skin soaked it up without any greasy residue. Thank you Moo Goo for such a good product.

Perfect Natural Looking Solution For Pale Pinkish Skin

published

I tried this on my face and neck last night and I was very pleased when I saw the result this morning. I hate my skin tone (very pale with pink undertones) and I found that after using this tanning cream I did not look dark, I more looked like someone with yellow undertones. This is my dream! I have never achieved this before with any other product, I have tried to counteract the pink in my skin with all sorts of shades of foundations and self tanners. This Moogoo tanning cream is the only thing that actually looked natural, like my skin was just made that way. So if this is what you are after, I would highly recommend this product.

Average, was expecting more from a wonderful company.

published

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 :(

Works after one application

published

I have tried several gradual tanning creams and none compare to this great product from MooGoo. I recently switched over to a number of moogoo products as I have very sensitive skin with great success so I thought I would try the gradual tanning cream. It is somewhat deceiving as it looks and feels like a slightly tinted moisturising cream. It is slightly greasy so you must let it sink in (takes about half an hour) so I apply before bed. When you wake up you have a natural looking tan. Natural not orange. Really recommend this product!

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