I think this is one of the better self-tanners I have tried. The smell is lovely and the color doesn't look too fake (I'm sorry but I just don't think you can completely fake a tan). You have to be careful when spraying it on but I feel like it does go on evenly. (I hold it a little farther away as I press the nozzle and then bring it closer while it is spraying. This keeps you from getting a spot where you start.) The best part is that it dries really fast. Really. Completely dry. I use this on my legs which never seem to tan as fast as my arms!
