Product Review: Neutrogena Sun Fresh Sunless Foam

Reviewer: S.K.Y.

Brand: Neutrogena
Name: Sun Fresh Sunless Foam
Size: 118 ml
Price: $15.99 CAD

Shade Tried: fair/medium skin tones

It’s summertime again, and that means it’s time for shorts! In an attempt to look nice and tanned without visiting the tanning salon or baking under the sun I’ve picked up this neat product. I’ve tried Aveda’s self-tanner in the past & was pretty impressed with the results, so I have high hopes for this one. I think with any tanner the all important quality is whether it works, leaves any streaks or splotches, and if the results are a natural and looking tan.

From Neutrogena’s website: "This ultra-light formula goes on easily, absorbs evenly, and looks absolutely radiant—never fake or flat."

To Purr About:
- Easy to apply.
- It is ultra light – doesn’t feel greasy and absorbs into the skin quickly
- Does not dry out the skin
- Does not seem to irritate my sensitive/itchy skin
- No noticeable streaks

Claws Out:
- Has a slight chemical smell to it as all tinting creams/moisturizers seem to have
- Does not moisturize the skin
- Only minimal skin colour difference noticed
- A bit on the pricey side

Final Comments:
I used this product about once a day for about 10 days which was about half the bottle on my legs and didn’t notice any major tanning of my legs. Being a loyal Neutrogena user I am a bit disappointed with the results of this product. I think I personally prefer a product that is combined with a moisturizer (because I have such naturally dry skin) so I don’t have to worry about washing this product off after a few hours and moisturizing in addition. I think I’ll try some other products out there – I’m interested in seeing how Neutrogena’s Sun Fresh lotion so perhaps that will be my next venture.

I have used several self-tanners over the past few years and it seems as soon as I find one I really like they quit making it. However, I have used the Neutrogena Sun Fresh Medium/Dark since it came out last summer and I really like it! Any self tanner is a bit of maintenance but used daily I notice a tan developing within just a few hours. I am very white in the winter but I do tan easily so the Medium/Dark color works well on me, looks natural and is easy to apply. I like this product very much. The only problem I have is that it is VERY hard to find in stores this year so I have had to resort to ordering it online.
