Top 10 Ingredients: Aloe Vera Juice, Glycerin, Sclerotium Gum, Dihydroxyacetone (Bronzer), Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Extract, Carnitine (Amino Acid)
I was disappointed in this product, especially after spending so much money on it.
This is a gradual self tanner, and after 3 days of application I was MAYBE one shade darker.
I couldn’t really even tell I used a self tanner.
The product stinks of DHA and the instructions on how to use this product are somewhat confusing. The only way you’d be able to tell this is a daily self tanner is on the box, the bottle doesn’t mention it at all.
I paid a lot of money for a product that gave virtually no color and made me smell like DHA.
Look and Feel
Josie Maran Argan Self Tanning Cream is a lightweight lotion/cream.
It comes out white, without guide color, and feels soft and smooth.
This product was very easy to apply, there is no guide so you don’t have to worry about a mess being made.
It blends nicely into your skin, it feels like you are applying your daily lightweight moisturizer.
I was impressed with how quickly this product dried.
I could no longer feel this product on my skin within about 20 minutes. That was the one thing I really liked about this cream.
Smell (Before Application)
This cream doesn’t have a pleasant smell.
I could really smell the DHA, and I couldn’t smell any hint of fragrance or perfume trying to cover that smell.
This is another one of those products that smells like a cheap, drugstore product, but it’s actually one of the most expensive tanners out there.
Smell (After Several Hours And The Next Day)
The next day I could still smell the tanner on my skin, and I definitely smelled the DHA throughout the day as well. I couldn’t wait to shower it off!
Another area this product fell short is the color produced.
The color was extremely light.
It is a daily/gradual tanner, so I expected to get a shade or two lighter after each application. I didn’t notice ANY color at all after the first application and maybe got 1 shade darker over the next few days of application.
It’s a lot of work putting on a self tanner, so it was a real pain putting it on 3 days in a row and STILL not achieving a tan.
How Long It Lasts
I honestly couldn’t tell how long this product lasted because the color was so light.
I would say it lasted a day, MAYBE two.
OK For Men?
If you know a man that is looking to get tan, do not recommend this product to him.
He will just become frustrated after applying it 3 days in a row and achieving almost no color.
This cream is $32.00 for 4 oz…that works out to $8.00 an ounce. Talk about forkin’ out a pretty penny for a product that doesn’t give very good color!
