It's easy to apply (with the mitt) but I'm not 100% happy with the result. It's too light and it didn't cover some areas like thighs and around my top hands. I had to do a double coat the next day but I was advised not to, as the first application may break and can leave my skin looking patchy. It didn't turn out patchy in the end but it's still too light for my liking. It's also pretty sticky and I couldn't wait to wash off after 6 hours. After showering and sleeping overnight, I can smell the tan smell too. I'm going to try the 1 hour express mousse after this and hope it's darker and doesn't feel sticky.
