Believe it or not but this is the first Model Co tanning product that I have used. My sister absolutely loves their tanning products and only says positive things about them so I decided to buy this gradual tanner on one of my regular trips to Priceline. I really wish that I had read some reviews on the different Model Co products because I have been left really disappointed with my experience with this one.
This product retails at $16.99 at my local Priceline so it is pretty affordable. As you can see from the pictures above, it comes in the lovely sleek white and pink packaging that Model Co is famous for.
The product itself comes out white and is a good consistency - not too thick or too runny. It applies clear so you can wear it without it staining your clothes.
Even though I am naturally super pale, I found that this product developed no colour whatsoever! Even after 8-10 hours of having it on, I still could not see any results. I know that gradual tanners are not meant to develop into a dark colour but I expect to have a subtle hint of colour after using them.
Even after using this product for 5 days, I still have had no results from it! When you initially apply the cream, it has a coconut kind of scent, but this quickly wears off and turns into that horrible fake tan scent that we all dread. So this product has not been the most pleasant to use but I have tried my best in order to see if it works.
Since the product has not worked at all for me, I cannot comment on whether it develops with streaks or anything like that. It doesn't absorb into the skin very well so you do end up with a bit of a sticky feel after using this product.
Needless to say, I have been disappointed with this product especially given that cheaper ones like the Dove gradual tanner (which is a fraction of the price) have given much better results. I would not recommend this product and will definitely not be repurchasing.
Have you had a really disappointing experience with a fake tanner? I would love to hear your experiences about other products I should avoid.
