"For the past few years, I've managed to stay out of the sun because I am scared of skin cancer. But I missed having a tan. A friend recommended this self tanner and I LOVE it! Just exfoliate and then apply like a body lotion. I have not had any problems re: orange spots whatsoever. The smell is refreshing and the fact that lavera uses only natural/organic ingredients makes this a perfect product, especially for mothers and mothers-to-be. Highly recommend lavera's Self Tanner!"Yvonne Schwab

Best Self Tanner Hands Down!
Review by: Deb on 6/27/2015
I have tried so many self tanners. Allergic rash with all of them, Except this one! Lavera tanning lotion is # 1. Great application with no streaking or patching, great color too. I would and have recommended it. This product is a keeper!
Review by: JohnBoy on 3/3/2015
Great in all respects. A little goes a long way. No streaking. Good colour. Not unpleasant smell. When put on at night, it gives a nice glow in the morning. Please do not take this as medical advice, but if you have been caught out in the sun without enough sunscreen and are looking a little red, then putting some of this on helps cool the burnt colour. Please keep making it.
Review by: Bri on 11/7/2014
I have tried every single self tanner on this earth.... Have even lived in London and tried those. This is hands down the best self tanner out there. I apply once a week and it last a full week plus some depending on how often you shower sweat etc!

Fantastic self tanner
Review by: C. Mills on 10/1/2014
Fantastic self tanner! Love that it's missing parabens and other not so healthy ingredients. The color looks natural and the smell is good. It lasts several days to a week....
Self tanner
Review by: Jeni on 9/18/2014
Very nice product, did work as advertised.
safe tan
Review by: poodle pad "poodle lover" on 8/6/2014
This works very well. Does not look fake or give a fake orange look. You get great coverage and you can control the intensity of the tan. I work my way up to a nice tan.
Three Stars
Review by: Zehner A Hoffman on 7/8/2014
Worked marginally
Natural looking
Review by: Redhead6 on 6/22/2014
I've been using this self tanner on my face & body for 4 years. I love that it looks natural not orange, does not streak & the scent is pleasant. Great product!
Wonderful Clean Formula... a must have
Review by: Matthew on 5/19/2014
This has been my favorite self tanning lotion for years. Fabulous formula. Clean, clean, clean ingredients. A must have for the transition from winter to spring. I am hoping one day that they will make an "airbrush" formula so it will be easier to get my back covered. I highly recommend this product to all my friends.
I'm bronzed!
Review by: Andrea M on 4/15/2014
I really wanted a tanning product that was more natural, so after some research I found this one. I was glad to find out that it works just as well as the non-natural kinds and smells less weird too!
Works in one application, especially if you're liberal with it.
I love this one!!
Review by: Katie on 3/31/2014
I bought this tanner and Sun Laboratories tanner at the exact same time. This Lavera tanner is my favorite. It didn't break my face out at all and I am allergic to everything from hair dyes to perfumes and creams. This goes on like a cream...you must put it on in a circular motion to make sure you are covered without having streaks. Love it. I can't describe the smell to you,...it isn't a familiar smell. But my husband liked it on me. Hope this helps.
The BEST natural self tanner I've ever found
Review by: Elaine S on 3/25/2014
I have tried numerous self tanners & gradual tanners - dept store/Sephora types (Clarins, Lancôme, Fake Bake, etc) as well as ones from the health food stores, Target, etc - This is by far a much more natural FAST tan for my shockingly white legs. I purchased it a few times a few years ago in my local Target, but they stopped carrying it (I swear they do that with anything I fall in love with)! When I first spotted this on Amazon, there was no way I was paying the hefty shipping charge that particular seller was charging, but when I checked a month or so later, I saw this offered via Prime & jumped right on it. Yeah! I had to golf for a work event (haven't golfed in like 15 years) - and the Lavera came in 1 day before - applied it to my legs after a shower and shave - it works just as amazing as I remember!
Toxic Free Sunless Tanner
Review by: Karis Robertson on 3/17/2014
I'm a fan of this lotion because it works and it is toxin free! I have very fair skin therefore it only took a very small amount of lotion to give me a slight glow. If you apply the lotion in line with the directions you will not be disappointed. I really like the fact that you don't have to use this lotion everyday to maintain a nice tan. The lotion leaves a bronzed sunkissed tone -- void of any orange hues. This product is a great value for the price paid. Buy it!
Nice Tanning Lotion
Review by: James J. Cole on 12/16/2013
I have been buying this tanning lotion for years. I am fair skinned and it gives me a nice soft color; I feel more attractive wearing my golf clothes, etc.
Nice natural product
Review by: GreatBuyer on 11/8/2013
I am so naturally pale it took me a couple of coats and days to see a nice color.
Now I alwis have a nice glow and not ashemed to wear my bathing suit at beach.
i live in Florida where is nice 360 days of the year and the beach is a must.
Best lotion yet!
Review by: Amazonia on 9/21/2013
I wish I could get this lotion without having to pay so much but it really does the job well. It doesn't have many of the chemicals that so many other lotions seem to have. There is no stinky smell like many have AND it is the best brown tone I have ever had. No orangey or streaky look to it at all. I am very fair skinned and it looks natural. Love it!
Great Choice for a Sunless Tanner
Review by: Stephanie M on 9/6/2013
I don't usually use self-tanners, but I decided to give this one a try after spending hours searching for an all-nautral product, and this one had the best reviews. I have pretty pale skin and had not been in the sun for months when I used this. I was very nervous, as with any self tanner, as one never knows how the skin will react. I used it on my legs, and it did give me color but it was just the slightest orange hue although barely noticeable and my husband did not even notice I had to point it out to him. I have not used it any where else yet, again too nervous, but I think it is definatley worth a shot if you are looking for a natural self tanner.
This is a pretty good product
Review by: Donna Gulley on 8/26/2013
This is a pretty good product. It's great for moisturizing as well as a tanning lotion.
It smells great, too!
Good, natural-looking tan
Review by: AMZShopper on 8/26/2013
I was really impressed the first few times I used it. I noticed this stuff worked best when I was in Hawaii. I wore factor 30 on the beach, but my skin was still getting some sun. Then I applied this a couple of times towards the end of the week. The tan looked really good. I had a couple of people ask me how I got such as great tan. :) Back home, back in the office, way less sun, and reapplying this lotion gives me an OK look. I had a couple of instances where I got some very dark patches during the fading process that were hard to shift. I am extremely fair, and no-one should have to experience my legs without a little color. I like the low/no chemical content. If that's you too - I recommend this!
Love this product!
Review by: ACC133 on 7/26/2013
This product works great. I was sure to exfoliate well and apply evenly. It made my legs perfectly tan in one application.
Not orange!
Review by: Em_Conner "Em" on 7/1/2013
Wow! I bought a number of self tanning creams to compare one against another. This was the best. It doesn't look orange and it isn't too dark. Put a little on, wait a few hours, then put another layer on. This worked for me for the best results. That's because you need to wait a bit to see how dark each layer becomes. I accidentally didn't do this the first time got my face TOO dark (although never orange!). I'm fair skinned, though, so it might be unnecessary to do that for darker skinned people.
This self tanner works great!
Review by: Gray Dog Mom on 6/2/2013
This self tanner works great! No smell like the others I have tried. Nice, even, natural tan look. This is a product I will use year after year!
Low Health Hazard
Review by: Ncrane on 5/14/2013
Pretty color but have to apply more than 3 times a week to keep desired color. The bottle is too small to keep the color up for a month. I love the color and its very safe to use but many bottles should be purchased at once.
I recommend this product
Review by: Ricia on 2/21/2013
This self tanning lotion is easy to use, looks natural, and lasts for about a week before it becomes faded. I've used it for about a year and a half and like how it smoothes out the color of my skin, creating a nice consistency, with the dark and light spots on my skin becoming far less apparent. This lotion is a wonderful alternative to using facial foundation makeup.
Best self tanner on the market!
Review by: Silvia K on 1/13/2013
This is the only self tanner I use now. Natural golden glow, no streaks, and a pleasant smell that barely lingers.
Love it!
No streaks, no chemicals
Review by: lheath on 8/10/2012
I really like this product. All fake tanning products smell a little funny, so I just accept that fact of life. I have never had a problem with streaking with this and feel the color is not too orange. I have always had very nice results and appreciate being able to put a product on my skin that is not filled with chemicals. Win/win!
very satisfied
Review by: sko on 7/9/2012
I have a problem with lotions, makeup etc...allergies so I could never use any self tanner until this product. It looks very natural, but does need to be applied about every 3 days.
Excellent Organic Self Tanner
Review by: Nicole on 6/6/2012
Is totally organic, love that is does not contain parabens, it does NOT smell like the regular self-tanners and it works!! I love how natural the tan looks, no orange or artificial coloring. Amazing product that I will continue to purchase!
