I wanted to get past the plateau that my skin color was currently at. The fragrance smells really Suttle even after a couple hours after use. After I leave the salon I have to go straight to work & I always get compliments on the lotion I use. You do need to wipe your hands before entering the tanning bed, after I wipe them with a paper towel , the color doesn't stain at all. You can see immediate results just after one tanning session,thats what I love. I hate trying to use a lotion & it takes more than once to see a difference. With this lotion I seen results right away. As soon as I step out after my session (bed level 3 & 4 for 12min.) I can see the color development already in progress. Hours later the color got even deeper . It always leaves me feeling like a golden godess with soft smooth tanned skin that smells like summer frfr.
