Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish It Would Have Worked! Don't buy This is not as advertised. It is a bronzer, not tanner. It claims to tan but on my super pale skin I get nothing. I don't think I have ever used a product that never worked. Not on the legs, elbows, knees, hands...nothing. I tried over and over hoping. It will leave a very pretty bronze color that looks great, rubs off on to everything and then washes off. With nothing left behind. It never dries, it smears, all day, all night. The good thing is it washed off all the clothes/sheets it rubbed off on to. Smells terrible. The smell never fades like usual. I may have gotten a bad batch. The product does not look as advertised, different packaging that claims the formula has changed. Yeah, it changed all right. And not for the better. Please beware. It has to go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Self-Tanner I will ever buy I have tried LOTS of self tanners, this was by far THE BEST!!! I love the bronzer that allows you to see where it has been applied and prevents you from streaking. I mix with a little moisturizer when applying to my face and hands. It is very dark when I apply it at night, but when I shower the next morning I am left with a very natural, NOT ORANGE, color. The scent is a little strong after first applying, but once again, after I shower the next morning it is gone. I will never buy another self tanner again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coverage I really like this product...the color it gives is a dark brown with only one application, the smell is nice and it fades naturally. The only thing I wish is that it had at least one more ounce for the price. This is still a very good value for a self tanner considering there's tanners out there that sell for three times the price; however, more than anything I hate how fast you can go through this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!!!! I was a bit spectacle to buy this product. I read other reviews and thought I would give it a try. I love it. I use it sparingly, but I noticed the trick is definelty using it three to four nights in a row. and putting it on at night. :) I was concerned about turning orange, but that didn't happen. I am very fair skined and it worked beautifully. The excess color does come of in the shower. I mix the tanner with a moiseriser for elbows knees and ankles. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best that I've Found I read about this self-tanner on the Sally web site and thought I'd try it. I really liked the application with the enclosed gloves. It made it less messy and didn't stain my hands. The price is about average for a good product like this. The smell was almost non-existent for me; not bad at all; however, as it stays on your skin you will smell that tell-tale tanner smell but it isn't strong and you wash it off in the morning. The lotion is very thick but that helps to put it on and the bronzer is great to show where it's at and to even it up if necessary. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is that the bronzer definitely transfers to clothing, etc. so be careful with your good bedspreads, etc. as they will get a tint of tanner on them. The bronzer does come off in the shower so it looks darker than it really is once you've showered. I only wish it came without the added bronzer due to the transfer issue. Sometimes I use it during the day and must be careful not to sit on the couch or in the car if I have shorts on. The color of the tan is excellent; a beautiful bronze mocha shade; not at all orange. It also lasts for about 3 days unless you continue applying it. One bottle will do the body several times so I didn't think the price was bad. Overall, I will buy it again and enjoy tanned skin in the summer without the damaging rays of the sun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't turn me orange but dries very slowly Pro: Did not turn me orange. I am as white as a ghost (in other words, my tan is everyone else's natural skin color) and it actually made me tan. Cons: I applied this two hours ago and unfortunately, I'm still not dry. I'm afraid to sit down! I'm wondering when this will ever dry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best i've tried While no self-tanner is perfect, this one comes darn close. I mix some with my body lotion because the formula is thick and that helps it soak into my skin better. Also, when doing my feet, ankles, knees and elbows I use a lot more lotion in that mix so I don't have too-dark skin in those areas. I get a nice dark-brown tan after two applications and can keep it up by reapplying after 3 - 4 days. After the 4th day it fades fast but that's to be expected. It might be too brown for very light skin tones, but for light to medium tones you'll get a very nice brown tan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love! Holy COW TOMA'S! I love you!! :) I have fair skin and I long to have a real tan, dark glowing skin.. I think it's beautiful and Toma's gave that to me! I've seriously tried just about every drug store self tanner on the market, and every single one leaves me with an uneven unnatural orange glow.. which I do not want.. I used Toma's for the 3rd time last night and woke up looking like I just got back from the beach!! This lotion will give you a fresh bronzed gorgeous glow that you will love. I'm not going to say it's streak free or streaky-- it all depends on how you apply it. This is a VERY dark lotion so make sure you blend and smooth and blend and blend!!! But it's so worth it.. I put it on about every 5 days (my color stays rich for this long if I keep my skin moisturized!) before I go to bed. BUY THIS LOTION IF YOU WANT A DEEP DARK REAL LOOKING TAN! It's an all natural formula so I'm comfortable putting it on my skin.. if it gets on your clothes/sheets/towels etc.. it comes out when you wash them! AMAZING. It also has a very subtle smell when you apply it which is nice.. but once it dries and sinks into your skin, it does have a typical self tanning lotion smell. This is why I rub it on before I go to bed, so I wake up and shower the smell off- and the color is perfect!! This product is amazing and well worth the price, I'm a believer!! I'll never buy another brand of tanning lotion- OR expensive minutes in a tanning bed. I'm hooked!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tanner ! It works well without turning orange. I like the fact that it is tinted, which allows you to see where you put it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lotion This lotion is great, give you instant color, the only down side is it fades away in about 2-3 days, but looks great those first 2 days. No streaking because you can tell where you have applied. I wish it came in a bigger bottle! I usually spray tan but this is just as good and faster to apply, Love this lotion! Well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever tried! I was shocked how much I love this sunless tanner! It is by far the best I've ever tried, and I've tried a lot of drug store tanning lotions. I am very pale and this gives me great natural looking color. The best part is the staying power of it. It really stains the skin and didn't even come off when I shaved my legs. I am hooked! Some reviewers say it has a bad smell but it doesn't bother me at all, I've smelled worse sunless tanning lotions. It dries quickly compared to others and hasn't stained anything. I love that its made in the USA! The gloves are important to use, I'm glad there was a pair included. I applied at night and didn't shower for 24 hrs, It took the edge off and left behind pretty brown skin! XOXO I'll never be pale again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Instant Color! After reading the good reviews I figured I'd give it a shot. I've worked at tanning salons with the Mystic Tan and have used other types of spray on tans. This stuff is equal if not better to the results I would get with those. It is very controlled color, not orange, but a nice, deep bronze. Make sure you wear the gloves!! Your hands will soak up the color and get very dark. I would even recommend buying smaller gloves because the ones they give you are a little big. Make sure you exfoliate and moisturize well prior to using it. Use small amounts and do small areas at a time, using little circular motions to get it all absorbed evenly. Go easy around the knees and elbows. I always do my arms last and get close to the gloves, then take the gloves off to blend onto the tops of my hands. Do this at night so you give it a lot of time to absorb. You're supposed to take a shower in the morning, but I never do. It seems to not rub off on anything the next day, but the instant color will wash off in the shower, leaving you with your own developed color. Use it 2 or 3 nights in a row, then a couple times a week to maintain your color. I mix it half and half with body moisturizer and mix a small amount into my face moisturizer to give my face a hint of color. The smell isn't the best but it goes away pretty quickly. The bottle isn't huge and it's VERY thick, but I don't mind the consistency. It absorbs quickly and gives you immediate color. I'm very happy with this stuff and will definitely continue buying it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWSOME!!! I have tried many products in the past to try and get tan and thisis by far the best! It has not turned me orange and I already after 1 application have color. Going to try and put 2 more on and see what that does. Deafinatly my best purchase ever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A tip Since this lotion is thick and doesn't have the nicest aroma, squeeze some out in the palm of your hand along with some of your favorite body lotion. Mix together, then apply to skin. It helps the tanning lotion go on easier/smoother and you get the smell of your favorite body lotion at the same time. I do this with any self-tanners I use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I'm on my 3rd bottle of this and I LOVE it!! I'm 35 and am starting to see slight sun damage on my skin so realized it was time to start using heavy duty sunscreen but still wanted to be tan. The application is really easy and I love the bronzer in it so you can see where it's going. I definitely recommend doing it at night before you go to bed so it has time to work and then rinse off the bronzer in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product I like the instant bronzer, makes you look tan right away. Which helps show where you placed the product and if you missed any areas. Do apply it at night like the bottle says. I applied during the day once and got dressed and the product rubbed off around my waistline while wearing jeans. The product is thick so it was difficult getting it out. So I store my bottle upside down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This is the best stuff out there. Before I had my son I would go tanning 3-4 times a week, but I just don't have time for it anymore, not to mention I would really rather not end up with skin cancer. I have tried so many different products to try and get a quick tan when I need it, and I finally found this one. It takes about ten minutes for me to get my entire body covered in a wonderful tan that doesn't look fake or too orange. It doesn't rub off on my clothes, and it doesn't wash off when I'm doing my daily household duties. I would recommend this to anyone thats looking to get a beautiful tan in a few minutes without damaging their skin. The best part is once you get the tan your looking for, you only have to use it once a week to keep that tan! I would also like to add that I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it at all, and since I just had my son two months ago I have my wonderful "battle scars" ie;stretch marks, which are covered up really well by this product. Bonus! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this stuff is great! I love this stuff! I love having a tan, but my skin is so pale it's hard for me to get a tan quickly outside. I have tried soooo many other self tannerd and they either didn't show up or came out streaky. I tried this one and was pleasantly surprised! A nice tan developed in about three days. I love the built in bronzer to show where you've applied the product. The first morning when I showered, the bronzer washed off and I wasn't instantly tan, but I did see the tan developing. The smell isn't too bad and the bronzer didn't come off on my clothes or sheets. Overall, this stuff is amazing and it's like the best self tanner I've ever used!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre at best I wanted to use a lotion after the spray self tanners I was using ended up everywhere! (ceiling fan, vents, ect). This was the only self-tanning lotion my local Sally's had in stock so I thought I'd try it. The smell isn't strong and fades quickly, but the formula is extremely thick and was sometimes hard to blend in certain areas. I got weird dark/light patches on my chest. When I got to the last quarter of the bottle, I couldn't get the lotion out. I had to literally cut my bottle in half and put it in a sealed plastic bag for storage. It ended up crusting over at the top, causing a mess, so I just threw the rest of the bottle away. The color was nice, not orange. No one asked if I had a spray tan and I got lots of compliments on my color! I would only use this product again if I were in a bind and didn't have time to either hit up a tanning salon or find another product. I wasn't in love. I'll stick to my sprays!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely no streaking! I have an allergy to the sun and CANNOT tan naturally at all- it gives me really itchy and painful hives. I spent all last summer as pale as a ghost and tried a few tanning products but didn't have the money to keep it up. My problem had always been streaking- no matter how hard I try to blend evenly, I get unnatural streaking on my legs and arms or certain areas get darker than others. I decided to try this product after reading all of the reviews and I was very pleased! I used it for the first time last night and loved the color guide. It's basically impossible to get streaks! The color is very natural and it looks like I spent the day tanning. I haven't showered yet this morning but I didn't experience any staining on my clothes or sheets last night. Also, I didn't notice any smell except the smell of the latex gloves that seemed to linger for a while. All in all, this is a great product and seems worth it for the price because a little goes a long way. I imagine that this bottle will last me for about a month so $13 seems very worth it. I bought it yesterday with a coupon so it was only $11 anyway. I can already tell that this is going to be my go-to product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Of The Better Tanning Products Out There! Toma Tan is my "ol' trusty" self tanning lotion. It's the only one I can put on correctly. The new fast drying technology is nice. I can get dressed shortly after I apply. I usually put it on at night time, then shower in the morning...it looks great! I've learned the hard way to apply sparingly to your hands. but after using it so long, it's second nature to me! Def wear gloves when applying!! The gloves that come with it are ok, but I get a smaller pair of the hairdresser's dyeing gloves. They hold up better. Also, the color takes REALLY dark to my face, so any imperfections I have and some parts like my nose need a little extra scrubbing the following day to tone the color down. I def recommend this stuff, though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! This product is the best tanner, by far, that I have ever tried. It is pricey, which sucks, but the color is never orange, and I have been getting asked if I have been using a tanning bed, which is what we all want right? If you're wondering, the bottle will give you approximately 4 uses, depending on how big you are. I used it 3 nights in a row, skipped a night, and used it the night after which is perfect. I will probably apply it two times a week now that I am really tan. seriously buy this!
Date published: 2011-03-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love this product! I do also tan a couple times a week in a tanning bed and I use this to deepen my tan. I like Toma's because I can use tanning bed lotions that have zero bronzers and then use Toma's once a week to add that extra brown color. I don't have to tan in the tanning bed as often and look super dark. I have been using it for years. I have no complaints and do recommend for anyone who has even a little base tan...as I haven't tried on me when I have no tan at all. You will smell weird in the morning when you get up...but just shower it away and you are set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Color! I was very skeptical when buying this product. I was afraid it would come out orange-y like a lot of the other self-tanning products I tried. I have been tanning and I love the color I get but I don't want the skin damage, so I chose to use self-tanners instead. This one is amazing if you scrub your skin in the shower before applying. It comes with gloves, so you never have orange or tan colors under your finger nails. It also helps to achieve even coverage. I've never noticed any streaks, except for when you get this product wet. If water was to run down your cheek, the product streaks. I realize that these kinds of tanners tell you to wear the product overnight and shower in the morning, but I find that this pretty much washes it off entirely. So that is the only reason it got 4 stars. I wish it were water proof or that the color resisted showering. Other than that, it's a great, even color and looks very real. It looks a little fake when I apply it to my face but that doesnt bother me since I wear make-up over it anyways. I've been using this product for almost a year and it lasts a decent amount of time, but of course that depends on how much and how often you use it. It smells a little funny, but what tanning lotion doesn't.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work This product simply did not work on me for some reason. I have very fair skin and saw virtually no difference after using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than st. tropez I bought this because of the excellent reviews. It was definitely a great purchase. The lotion is colored and doesn't flake off in anyway. (It is a little hard to get out of the bottle sometimes so I'd recommend keeping it at room temperature and being patient) The first day you apply it, the change is instant; no waiting hours for color to appear. The price is decent and worth it but I would be so happy and buy more at a time if they brought it down a hair, to eight dollars or so. If you want to go very dark you do have to apply it multiple times either the day of or for the next few days after to maintain it.( I wish they would offer this product in a supersize value bottle with a pump cap top)This is definitely hands down my favorite product though and I will continue to buy this until something comes out that is better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent!!!! I'm absolutely in love with this product! I'm very very VERY light skinned so all summer I used tanning lotions and they worked but now that it's getting colder I can't really go out and tan so I'm going back to being pastey. I've tried many different sunless tanners from many different places and this one was by far THE BEST. It was a little startling at first because it does have a color corrector, which by the way is fool proof I have not once had a single streak on me, so it went on quite dark but after waiting over night and showering the next morning that color came off and left me with a nice bronze color. I noticed the smell, not terrible, but no one else did and it lasted about a week and a half before it started to fade. I got numerous amounts of compliments and was not once referred to as being orange. The entire bottle lasted me about a month and I'm about to go back and get more today. I would recommend this product to anyone. I do recommend using the gloves though haha, and a little lotion around the elbows, kness, wrists, and ankles, Good luck(:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!!! I haved tried allmost every self tanner there is this one is my favorite! The color looks GREAT no one knows. It lasts a long time. Plus the bottle lasts me about two weeks which is great compared to the stuff at like wallmart rite aid where allmost every other day you had to apply. Also when it does start to fade it doesnt fade in spots like others ive tried. Plus if you get it on your clothes no problem it washes right out. LOVE IT!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I used to use tanning salons but the process was too lengthly and expensive, not to mention unhealthy. This product gave me a great bronze look with one application and its super inexpensive. I found my new fav tanner! The smell fades as soon as u shower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising I actually bought this thinking it was a spray that took 4-6 hrs for the tan to show up so, needless to say, I was SHOCKED. After the initial shock wore off and I kept it on for the 3-4 hours, I took a shower and was actually impressed by the outcome. I will say it was HARD to get it off after a couple weeks, but I needed it for a wedding & no time to tan and it DEFINITELY did the trick.

Hello Is there a smell? Also how long will one box last? After you put the tanning lotion on Will it get on your sheets? 

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi.... there is not a smell , but understand there is an art to being tan and saving your skin. I have been using the spray product Salon Bronze for years because I worked a lot and just did not have the time nor did I want to go to a tanning bed. First of all you must exfoliate your skin and put Some type of lotion on your skin everyday. After my lotion dries, I put my swimsuit for spraying on and go outside. I spray my Whole body! After you begin spraying, I would say 2 passes, You Need to have a towel or paper towel handy to wip off the end of the nozzle, for the product does and can spray out a spot here and there. Just take a make up sponge and dab the dot. After you have covered you body, you need to let it dry really well. I usually wipe the bottom of my feet with some kind of cloth, for it will get on the bottom of your feet. Don’t exfoliate until you see the product starting to come off on spots. I use bacon soda to help get it off. Good Luck! I get compliments like crazzzzy and a tan make me feel better. Also..... spray it till it looks natural.
