Spray it on a cloth and then wipe it on
from London Ontario
Great product but messy if you spray it on and you waste a lot, I spray a little on a cotton glove and then wipe it on, this way I can control the amount and type of tan I want, if you do this, I think for the people who found it difficult to apply you will find this product much easier to use and you will get a good results. This product has very little smell, defdoes not smell like a tanning product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Self Tanner!
I am in my late thirties and I have tried many self-tanners. I was worried about this one as many people commented on how difficult it was to apply.I put on a latex glove and used a cotton pad and sprayed the self tanner on the cotton pad and immeditately applied to my face. WORKED GREAT! Haven't really used all over my body yet but love it for my face/chest and neck areas. Will definitely purchase again. Didn't care so much for the Sheer Shimmer offered by the same company.
it does smell like self tanner
so I thought "why not" but really not all that great. first of all IT DOES SMELL like self tanner. On a plus note, it does give good results but occasionally spits darker spray. I will not purchase again but return to my high end gel product that has NO smell and no mess.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great colour! great product
from Kitchener Ontario
This product give great colour, and lasts...I did this in the garage over an old towel. If you spray TOO close to your skin you will get a concentrated amount of spray that you must even out with a tissue. The smell of the self tanner portion is not as bad as others. I like this bc it is a spray and not a lotion. I would get this again, if on a showstopper or sale. The shipping cost increases the price too high otherwise.
from Mississauga, Ontario
Pretend Tan is a fantastic product, it's incredibly easy to apply, and I find myself using it all year round. During the summer, I'm always wary of exposing my skin (especially my face) to harmful UV rays and I use this product to give myself a nice glow. I am of an olive complexion, but I find that Pretend Tan helps to hide imperfections like veins or any cellulite and gives my skin a taunt, youthful look. Also, whenever I do tan in the sun, I invariably end up with noticeable tan lines and I've found that this product is a great tool to help blend them so that they look less conspicuous. Really great especially if you're wearing a strapless dress or shirt. Also, now that Fall and Winter are coming up and my tan has already started to fade, I use it to keep my tan all year. Constantly getting compliments on it! I never end up looking orange or burnt...which is an experience I've run into before with other spray tan products on the market. I've tried everything and Pretend Tan is the most healthy and natural looking product I've been able to find by a landslide. Highly recommend.
Can't go wrong with this one
By Margaret Soares
from Toronto, Ontario
As a 50 year old woman, I'm finding it more and more difficult to find a product that will hide the imperfections on my face. I found that Pretend Tan actually works better than foundation to give my skin an even tone and hide things like age spots, previous sun damage,etc., with the added benefit of giving me a nice, bronzed glow. It's also much lighter and more natural looking than foundation which I generally find "cakey" and "blotchy." I found it was easiest to apply the spray tan using a latex glove. I just sprayed the area on my body that I wished to tan and blended the product into my skin using the glove. It's hard to go wrong this way...very straightforward and fast. I also got some on my white bathroom rug and it came off in the wash...so no concerns about staining and what not. I actually used Pretend Tan for the first time over my work holidays, didn't leave the GTA or do any sort of sun tanning, and came back to the office with people telling me I looked great and asking me where I had gone on vacation. Highly recommend this product. I bought a few cans as gifts for some of my friends of all ages and they also loved it too! An inexpensive, easy to use, and healthier alternative to tanning beds or even tanning in the sun. Everything in the product is natural.

Not so glowing
By Love to shop
from Nova Scotia
I am usually very happy with products I purchase from TSC, but I'm sorry to say that this product is very messy to apply, uneven,orange looking and washes off unevenly.I exfoliated before applying and just sprayed a fine mist as I did not want to be too dark and still did not like my results.Also ended up with the bottom of my feet stained dark brown from the spray getting on the floor and stepping in it.Can't scrub it off.I have used tanning creams before this and I will go back to that as they are much more controllable.
I recently received Pretend Tan as a birthday Gift from my kids via the Shopping Channel. Being and elderly lady I was amazed on how natural the tan was and how youthful I looked without my make up.Going to restock soon.

Need a steady hand and confidence
from PORT MOODY
I have applied this spray tan on my legs on two occasions and end up looking like I have a skin disease. I can't spray it evenly, I get too close to the leg and it runs, I have light and really dark patches.... I stand in the shower as recommended, because it sprays on the walls and shower curtain and stains the towels. I wish it came in an even lighter shade and I could stand outside to apply it. LOL That way I might stand a chance of it looking less obviously patchy and I wouldnt have to worry about the mess.
