Rated 3 out of 5 by TheFrostyOne I will stick to standing out on the beach
First of all, I LOVE Ultrasun and recommend it to all of my friends and colleagues so it was quite difficult to rate this product. The three stars are not for the effectiveness of the product - because it was just as effective as other Ultrasun products. But they are for the fact that, as other reviewers have mentioned, it transfers - and not just a bit either. Despite standing naked (not an activity I take lightly!) under a fan for 10 mins, the product did not dry down enough for the colour not to transfer onto my bikini and clothes. In fact in the case of a white bikini the colour has slightly stained the fabric. I will not be buying this version of Ultrasun in the future unless the transfer issue can be resolved

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaE Beautiful for use pre-tan
I love ultrasun and have used the brand for many years.
I am unable to use the glimmer or sports due to intense sensitivity but have used the SPF30/50 family the face product and the aftersun with amazing effects.
When I saw this product on QVC I was excited by the idea but unsure as to whether this would suit my skin or not.
I was able to use it not only on my body but also on my face (although I realise there is another product specifically for this).
On my recent holiday to Florida I stuck to this product for the first four days until I had enough colouring (being olive toned it doesn't take long) and then resumed my normal ultrasun,
Love it and can't recommend it highly enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Teddybe4r FABULOUS - BUT - Marks Light Coloured Clothing!!
Well I find this Ultrasun Tinted Body Lotion applies to my skin beautifully. I never experience any streaking with its application!!
As some other reviewers, I apply it to small areas of skin at a time. I do the tops of my feet first, then lower leg, working up to knee area, then thighs. I find for best results, you need to work swiftly on each area, as it can dry quickly - and not to rub the lotion in too fiercely .
It DOES, DEFINITELY apply better to well exfoliated skin. I strongly feel ALL tinted creams, whether it be fake tan or body "tints", need to be applied to a thoroughly exfoliated skin. It just glides on so much easier - and LOOKS better. This is not an extra chore for me, as I exfoliate my whole body weekly anyway - and my face at least three times a week (with Alpha-H - superb facial exfoliater ).
I've dropped one Star from my rating because this product DOES transfer onto my clothing. I do tend to wear black or navy shorts, and cropped patterned trousers, so this product is just ideal to cover up my blue-White legs and feet,while I tan (it takes ages for my legs to turn brown). If I wear any pale or white coloured PLAIN tops, this product rubs off on them. I would not even attempt to wear a white bra or light coloured swimsuit wearing this lotion!!
Superb colour in this tint. No hint of orange on me whatsoever.
So...ULTRASUN, a great, great idea. To not have to sit looking like a beached white whale by the swimming pool, and still have SPF protection is a dream!! BUT - I do think the tinted aspect needs improving. It needs to be waterproof in that it does not "rinse" off easily in plain water (which it does at present). It should only come off when using a shower gel, soap, or cleanser.
There is always going to be some "rub-off issues with tinted creams - I've tried loads and it happens.
If I decide not to wear this on my body, I find it WONDERFUL worn on my face!! I get this beautiful, fresh glow to my skin - and people have commented how "well" I look! So, I have a great sized facial SPF product, which lasts ages if used for the face and neck.
I LOVE Ultrasun.....just waiting for their next release of this - if they do one - addressing the tint aspect. Thank you Abbie.
Thank you QVC for introducing me to, and constantly supplying me with the wonderful Ultrasun range.

Rated 1 out of 5 by princesskaren awful
Brought this to take on holiday as I usually start with factor 30 and then go down to 20. Love all the other ultrasun products but this though a great idea is truly awful. Thought it would be nice to have some colour for first few days on the beach but after applying this and leaving plenty of time for drying before getting dressed. It stained my bikini, clothes,towel and anything I came into contact with. Hadn't brought any other factor 30 with me si not wanting to burn had to continue using this for a few days ruining swimwear and clothing. Was also embarrassing all over hotel white towels! It also washes off as soon asyou take your first dip in the pool so waste of time having the tint in really. Will not be using this again and will have to buy new bikini as won't wash out. This seemed like a great idea from ultrasun but definitely needs more work on formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Champs Totally Inferior Opening/Closing Mechanism
I have been using Ultrasun products for many years with no complaints. I bought this product to take on holiday with me, took it out of the box and packed it in my sponge bag without taking the lid off the bottle. To my horror, when I arrived at my destination the product had leaked! The opening/closing pump dispenser is very flimsy and ineffective - I will not be putting this product in my suitcase again! Unfortunately, because I didn't try the product before my holiday I have missed out on the 30 day return. Please look at changing the design of the bottle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by StyleQueen57 So disappointed
i am fair skinned and looked forward to using this product due to Ultrasun's reputation and being able to control the colour. Words fail me - the pump failed after the first attempt and on the second one the product splurted all over my dressing table top. What a mess! I am returning it. Thankful for the money back guarantee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shoppy123 Not what I expected from ultrasun
love ultrasun but not this tinted body. I used it on legs and first off thought this is fab but then realised it had transferred all over the clothes I was wearing. Bought for my holidays but unfortunately didn't try it out before hand, otherwise I would have used the 30 day money back guarantee.
Good idea but not quite there.m

Rated 5 out of 5 by tatafanow1 Great product
I see some reviewers dont realise this is not waterproof! I love it and use it in the morning to replace foundation and in the dvening i put on parts that show! You simply wash it off. This has become my cant do without item and if QVC dont sell it again I will hunt around and it doesnt stsin if you let it dry xx
