Used this for a few years but all of a sudden got an allergic reaction

I've been using this for roughly about 2-3 years and I sworn by it. Recently I came out in an allergic reaction, little red bite looking spots that turned into little patches and some were itchy. I've had to stop using this product and I am devastated because it was brilliant! Not sure if the ingredients have recently changed, or one of the ingredients is stronger than usual, but I'm unhappy I have to stop using thus product. Maybe it should state that it's not suitable for sensitive skin. Show details

Love it

I am very pale and have a summer tan that is starting to fade . I started using this product two weeks ago for two days every three to four days and have managed to get my summer tan back . I do not exfoliate because I am lazy , and I have not got any patches nor gone orange anywhere . However I highly dislike the smell but I put up with it because I like the actual product . Show details

Don’t buy it if you have sensitive skin

I tried this product last year no problems so thought I’d use it this year. I applied it and it was fine. The next day I came out in itchy hives which itched so much I couldn’t sleep, this lasted for about a week. I was not sure of the cause thou I suspected it may be the tanning lotion. Once the itching subsided. I tried it again. Wish I hadn’t as the hives reappeared and now I am on Google to see if there is anyone out there with this horrendous itchy reaction. I won’t be using this again and I definitely won’t be sleeping tonight. Show details

It’s changed

I used to love this moisturizing tan and was able to apply it over and over again without going patchy and build a really good tan. The last two bottles I’ve bought have caused patchiness, dry skin and just does not go on skin evenly at all. There is no indication the ingredients have changed at all but certainly something has. I’ve used this product for years without adjusting my routine in applying it - now I’ll be looking for another option. Show details

Allergic reaction

An hour it took an hour or so to apply why and and within in half an hour it was dry.. the next morning I was itching and I noticed a red rash I came up in hives caused by the horrendous smell and chemicals used in this product.. avoid this product it's taken over two-and-a-half weeks to clear my skin.. should be taken off the market Show details

Haven’t been without it since I bought it!

I love this product! It doesn’t have that typical tan smell - it genuinely does smell nice. I love the shade as it really looks like a dark tan and it doesn’t turn out pale and streaky like other gradual tanners I’ve tried. Show details

Good but smells awful

I do like this product however the smell is very off putting. As a result I won’t be buying this again. I am referring to the Natural tan body lotion.

Would not re buy this!!!!

Thought I'd have a change from the dove tanning moisturiser. Little did I know that I'd wake up like a zebra. I applied it in the exact same way I applied the dove but got the result of a zebra. Not a good look in 'shorts' season.

New user - seems pretty good

My skin is naturally a little tan so I've never been interested or seen the point in a fake tan, until this summer for some reason. I bought the Palmers lotion a few days ago and I've used it 2-3 times immediately after showering and drying off. I have sensitive, irritable skin at the best of times, and often get itchy for no reason (well I'm sure there's a reason but I don't know what it is, my washing powder or something maybe). This product has not made me itchy, has not stained my clothes/sheets, and, so far, doesn't appear to be patchy. I use 2 pumps on each leg, and 1 pump for both arms. The smell is a bit strong upon application, but unnoticeable especially after putting on deodorant, perfume etc.

I like it

First time using it, keen to see the results. Don't see any immediate tan but hopeful for the results. I put on around two layers on my skin, so this stuff is just a bit sticky. But it's good

Stinks... literally

the scent is so strong its overpowering to the point you want to wash it off after half an hour, on the plus side it dries quickly but the tanning results were not that impressive compared to Dove gradual tanning alternative

You can do better

the smell is like JUST BEARABLE. patchy if you don't spend a good 30mins trying to get an even application. good thing about it is it doesn't stain the bed sheets

The push pump twists to activate like a normal pump soap or moisturiser.
