The most natural colour I have experienced yet! And hardly is streaky! The only problem I really have with it is that obviously the smell of sweat mixing with fake tan is always gross, but this one is exceptionally gross! I always just apply before bed and shower in the morning before going out! If you do this you won't have a problem :)
Having to shower after it has absorbed! The slightest sweat makes the smell gross! Nobody likes a girl who smells like fake tan!
I love this build a tan! I like it because I can do a coat 10 mins before bed and it doesnt streak or leave my bed smelling like tan. My usually routine is exfoliate Sunday night, then apply the tan a couple of nights a week and by the weekend I am tanned and glowing! I recommend to all my girl friends and they love it :)
inexpensive, natural colour
(Like any fake tan) Watch your ankels and elbows
Great natural colour and smells nice too!
Ive tried a few fake tanners and I'll be sticking with this one. It smells nice, its easy to rub in and leaves your skin moisturised too. The usuals apply, exfoliate first and put moisturiser on dry skin like feet, ankles and knees. Then apply the tanner. I put it on at night and bu the morning i have a nice even natural brown tan.... NOT orange!
Cheap as chips, available at all major supermarkets, nice colour, even application, and nice smell.
the usual common sense is required when using fake tanner, remember to wash your hands after.
I've always been a fan of palmers products so I thought I'd give this a go. It's great because is stronger than most gradual tanners. It also leaves skin feeling soft as it contains the original cocoa butter. However I found the smell to be horrible... It's smells like a 100 year couch that's been sitting in an pop shop. I also found it to be a bit too orange for my liking. It went especially orange around the knees and ankles.
Leaves skin soft, works fast.
Smell, looked orange aswell
Does what it says on the bottle.... but!
Well I have I used palmers products before,which are amazing. So when looking for a gradual tanner I didn't hesitate in trying theirs.
Firstly it is in an easy to dispense pump bottle which is great. When you pump it out it smells lovely like the palmers we all know and love,it goes on lovely and you don't feel overloaded with it which you can with other self tanners.
The results are nice,overnight works best for me you have a lovey glow,which you can build to a deeper tan if you wish,also I have to say no streaks,!!!! Double bonus.
Not as good as I expected
A bit disappointed. After reading great reviews on here I purchased this product.
The smell was similar to other tan moisturisers, a sweet/sour smell. Quite strong when left on overnight.
Did 3 applications on arms and shoulders. Colour remained a weak yellow/orange colour. I have fair skin. May be suited better for darker skin.
Easy to apply, no sticky feeling.
Would not buy again.
Easy to apply
Not suited to fair skin
Best I've found
I don't usually write reviews, but after using this product I felt compelled to let others know how good this is. Having tried many other fake tanning products in the past this is without a doubt the best I've tried, the colour is really natural (I'm naturally blonde with quite fair skin), it's easy to apply - the pump feature is especially useful and I've found it can even be applied with a mitt. I find it's best to apply at night just before bed so it can develop and allows for any areas missed to be rectified in the morning - as the colour c...an easily be removed with a cleansing wipe!!!!! And the complete removal of all tan can be achieved simply by a quick exfoliation. The only (tiny) criticisms I have are the smell during application and the drying time. The smell, whilst not offensive or 'biscuity' it's not a particularly nice one - the only way to describe it is like old mint. However once it has completely dried it smells delicious like all the other Palmer's range. Also with the drying time (this may just vary depending on your skin type) I have personally found that having not particularly dry skin means that I tend to have to wait a while for it to dry especially round my chest area, however it does usually dry within 15 mins or so. Overall this is the best tanning product I've found (and I have tried many, both cheap and expensive) and at such an affordable price and unlike other tanning products does not seem to have a negative effect on your skin (such as spots etc). Cheap, easy to apply, good colour, easily removed but also doesn't wash off in the shower Slight smell on application, drying time
Good but can turn yellow orange
This product is good. Just make sure you Only put thin layers on other wise it will turn orange and look cakey. Also it can leave your skin sticky of you over apply (as it is a gradual tanner it can be easy to over apply) Apart from that I liked it minus the strong coco nut smell.
Can build a natural looking tan if applied correctly
Has a strong smell
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze
This was the first self tanning product I had ever used. At the time I didn't really have much knowledge on different self tanning products and brands, but now that I do I can say that Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze is my number one product for tanning.
It has a amazing smell, which makes me literally want to eat myself. It leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth, and doesn't give that sticky, gross feeling that certain tanning products will.
It really did give me the perfect tan I'd been hoping for and it's definitely the sort of product you'd recommend to a friend.
Amazing smell. Reasonable price. Makes the skin feel soft and smooth. Doesn't feel sticky or gross at all. Gives a beautiful, bronze tan.
Nothing at all!
Really easy to use and a good price. As it was so gentle, unlike other fake tans it didn't stain clothes or sheets etc. Although you can buy the separate 'face' product I also used this on my face and had no problems. I will definitely buy this product again
The smell is great, easy to apply and not as risky as other fake tans at it is so gradual, left my skin really soft and moisturised
Although the smell is better than other tans I have used it still does have a hint of that 'fake' smell. Takes a while to get a darker looking colour.
overall i love the palmers cocoa butter formula natural bronze self tanning product, the colour is great however do exfoliate but i think you need to do that with any fake tan, the smell is gorgeous and the price is great
i love this tanning lotion, it looks so natural, i was a bit scared to use it on my face i was worried i would look orange but was surprised that it come out so natural looking, the price is great, i love the gorgeous smell so no one will be able to tell that you are using a fake tan
there is nothing i dislike about this product
An absolute bargain for the value-great color, fragrance and application-in comparison to other self tanning products.Definitely worth a place on your bathroom shelf for a quick skin color boost. As with all Palmers products the moisturising effects, rich coconut fragrance and value prices are worth the purchase in itself.
Deeply moisturinsing. Coconut fragrance is delicious. The color is like that of a gentle days worth of tanning.I even use it on my face and I have very pale skin-and it looks very natural.
Better to use it on damp skin as some streaking if used on dry skin.
I love this product. I have fair skin and was prepared that apon using this product I would quite possibly be channeling tandoori chicken. I was incredibly pleased with the result, a natural looking fake tan. The smell was bearable actually rather pleasant, smells like the original palmers cocoa butter ( WARNING- don't apply prior to going to bed or doing exercise. Let it completely dry first or the fragrance turns a bit gross. Don't really know why, sweat mixed with the tanner perhaps??. You also want to exfoliate and moisturize first especial...ly rough patches, or you will have a bit of an ORANGE knee, ankle and foot problem happening. Inexpensive, lasts a long time as after you acquire results, only have to use it every 2nd to 4th day. I loved it so much I also bought the Natural bronze for face which was also equally as good.
