Love love love! I love how you can see where you're applying the product so you can't miss a spot. I also feel like once you apply it, it stays somewhat wet for a few minutes which is good because you can blend it nicely, and it's very forgiving. It's essentially impossible to have a streaky tan with this. I do agree it is sticky and stays so for a couple hours. I applied before bed, waited 10 or so minutes before putting on dark clothing, and rinsed off in the shower in the morning. The smell didn't bother me, it smells like most other self tanners, it's not unpleasant at all. The color is dark and even and it's a beautiful color, definitely not orange. The face water is great--obviously it is clear so you can't see if you're streaky but it's not suuuuuper dark so if you did miss a spot or two it's not super obvious and you can fix it next time. I use this a few times a week and I really like it! When I use the ultra dark tan and avoid my feet, the juxtaposition of my pale feet against my tan legs looks silly, so I've been using the face tanning water on my feet! It works perfectly! As it's not as thick of a substance it works much better and looks really natural. Highly recommend!
