I have been using a gradual self tanner by queen helene called cocoa glow. This stuff is GREAT!!! i love it. it really looks natural and not orange at all. I put some on after my bath and it dries quickly and doesnt stain. I had to buy mine online but sometimes u can find it at walgreens or walmart.
Earlier I had mentioned that I was testing out 4 different self tanners. Here is my take on the following tanners:

Loreal Sublime Bronze (Medium - Deep) - It smells pretty good but I could hardly tell that I even used a bronzer at all. It also leaves your skin feeling sticky which I don't like...this lasted for hours!! Overall, I didn't care for it because it just didn't show up much. I used 3 layers letting each layer dry. A tad on the orange side also.. This one comes out looking very dark but once applied it fades quickly

Banana Boat Summer Color Sunless Tinted Lotion - A total waste of money. The Loreal Sublime Bronzer Lotion showed up better then this stuff... and that isn't saying much. I did like how it dried quickly and didn't leave my leg feeling sticky!! Overall, I wouldn't buy it...it didn't turn orange though because there isn't enough color to make it do that. Comes out light and stays that way!!

Banana Boat Sumer color Mist - This is the same as above but in a spray. Believe it or not, it had a lot more color to it. It was okay and might look ok on some people but looks orange on me. It also leaves your leg very very sticky for hours... I smelled terrible...and BEWARE when you go to spray it. The sprayer doesn't work very well and it goes EVERYWHERE!!! Little dots of it are all over my bathroom... It wasn't very fun to clean up and if you don't get it cleaned up quickly then it tries to stain. This one comes out with a very light tint.


Coppertone Sunless Tanning Bronzing Foam - Last but not least...FINALLY A WINNER!!! I have tried the expensive and cheap tanners and this is by far my FAVORITE!! This stuff goes on so smooth and dries in 5 min's. It didn't leave my leg sticky AT ALL and it smelled good. Most important, it doesn't look orange...it looks just like I've been out in the sun. I also don't have streaks which is rare. This is worth every penny (I believe it was about 11.99) It comes out tinted so you can see it go on!

A side note : If you want to test out a tanner for yourself...try Walgreens because they are EXCELLENT about their return policy. If you aren't happy with products then they will give you your money back with no questions asked! I've tried foundations before that didn't end up matching and they return them! I'm pretty sure that WalMart is about the same way! Good luck you guys and thanks again for all the info!!!! - Catherine
