Here's the start of the new self-tanner thread. Biotherm Summer Source is a gradual tanner that is easily controlled. Doesn't get really dark the first time you use it. It can be used as a daily moisturizer and does keep your skin very smooth. Lexi, as far as your other questions, I haven't noticed any uneven fading, orange hands or clothing stains. I usually wait a few minutes before dressing but it sinks in pretty quickly. I have never used it to get really dark. I am very fair and what I prefer is a warm glow. I don't use it on my face...I'm very protective of it! Prefer to use a make up bronzer and the only other stuff that goes on there is my regular skincare products. There are other options. You can still use a tanning bed or natural sun but minimally. I do use a tanning bed from time to time, max time for me is 5 minutes. When I get home, I warm it up with the Biotherm. I do go in the sun but with a very high sunblock. You still get a bit of natural tan and then supplement. Even in the tanning bed I cover my face. Sorry but wrinkles on the face are something you just can't hide! I'm 50 and have very few and I plan on staying that way. I recently was on a trip and one of the participants, in her 60's, was sitting right next to me in her bathing suit. I know she has spent a lot of time in the sun. Well, I looked at the skin on her legs and thought...nope, not going to happen here. It scared me "white" so to speak. Now it's exfoliating and a really nice after sun (also Biotherm). My skin feels great. I'll use the self-tanner when I want the "glow". I have tried other self-tanners, regular and gradual, but I definitely like this one the best. Hope this helps.
