Aveda Sun Source anyone?

Has anyone ever tried this? Do you like it? I want to use it on my face to give me a little color. I exfoliate my face every morning in the shower because it gets very flaky. Will this make the color spotty if I use the Aveda?

I haven't used it myself, but I've heard that most people find it turns their skin "yellowish". There are a lot of better products that are less expensive. However, you might find it works for you.

If you're looking for something that can be purchased locally, you might like Coppertone Oil-free sunless tanner - it usually doesn't cause any problems with breakouts. It also tends to be more of a reddish-brown than a golden-brown.

A lot of people don't like Banana Boat for the face - it's pretty greasy & tends to cause breakouts.

Personally, I like JamaicaMeTan - but you can only buy it online. It's an anirbrush tanning solution, but I put it in a spray bottle & use a velour puff to blend. I also like SUN Laboratories Ultra Dark lotion - sometimes you can find it locally.

Also - the face usually has to be tanned every other to every 2 days - if you're exfoliating everyday, you may have to tan your face everyday, too.

Thanks for all of the suggestions!

I like the Banana Boat sprays for my face........nearly any spray will work well as they are less oily/greasy than a lotion and less likely to break you out. I also like the Neutrogena sprays.
