First of all, this is meant to be a tanning product - NOT a sunscreen. I am pretty fair skinned with some visible sun damage/sun spots on my face. I can tan, but it usually takes me quite a while and many days in the sun to get started. My legs are particularly hard to tan. This tanning spray does a great job. Although it is only an SPF 15, I have never burned while using it, even when spending hours on end laying on the beach or on my patio. It generates a tan more quickly than any other product I have ever used. I can especially tell on my legs. I am able to get a deep, almost exotic looking tan on them now. Hampton Sun smells AMAZING. It is a light, tropical scent. Different than other sunscreens or tanning oils, in a good way. It smells and feels very luxe. It goes onto the skin almost like a dry oil. Your skin does not stay slick and greasy. It absorbs for the most part and leaves the skin so soft with just a slight, subtle sheen. You will NOT look or feel like you have oil slicked on you. It has a very light texture. That is one of the things I like the most about it. I hate heavy greasy tanning oils - this one is not like that at all. A bottle lasts me almost 2 summers. You do not need to use a whole lot at a time. This product offers a great tan, with a little protection from sunburn and smells great. Definitely recommended! Scent Light tropical, carribean smell. Not heavy, not too artificial smelling. Absorption Mostly absorbs into skin, leaving it soft - no greasy mess! Longevity Seems to last petty long on the skin, even after sweating in the sun - if you're in and out of the water a lot you will want to reapply. Effectiveness Excellent dark tanning capabilities without sunburn! Gives you a very exotic looking tan.
