Editors Tips and Reviews: Chocolate Sun is our secret weapon for a bronzed glow and an extra hint of color. This formula truly does smells like chocolate and is one of the best smelling self tanners we have ever come across. As the tan starts to process, there is a slight scent but is very mild compared to most. The cream formula is so easy to apply and goes on like a thick lotion would. Tans usually last 7 to 8 days. For a darker tan, apply one coat all over, wash hands and repeat. To ensure an even tan, very lightly sweep dry hand towel over outer edges of underarms, wrists, hands, knees, feet, ankles and the inside of arms. Let process for 7 to 9 hours before showering.

PREPARATION: Skin must be exfoliated, clean, dry and free of all other products. Shake product vigorously prior to application and prepare a damp cloth and a dry cloth prior to starting your application. These cloths will be used to wipe palms of hands every so often during application, to prevent product from settling into your skin.
APPLICATION TRICKS: Use gentle, broad, circular strokes for application to body - overlap each stroke to avoid streaking and missed areas. It is best to let the product absorb into skin, rather aggressively rubbing into skin.
PREP: Apply a thin layer of moisturizer onto tops and bottoms of your hands and feet, and don't forget in between fingers and toes. Also, feather a thin layer of lotion onto the inside of the bend of each of your wrists and down the sides of your ankles and heels.
LEGS: Product should be applied starting at your ankles. Work one leg at a time, front and back. Remember to work product onto buttocks while working on the back of the legs, blending onto lower back.
BACK: Continue applying product onto lower back, working your way up to the midsection of your back, and to upper back. This is a good time to wash hands, dry completely and begin the remainder of the body.
STOMACH: Continue by applying product onto the stomach and around sides.
CHEST: Apply to chest area blending onto the neck, and over the tops of the shoulders until you have blended into the application done on the upper back.
SHOULDERS AND ARMS: Starting at the front of the shoulder, apply product working downward onto the front of arm until you reach the wrist. Next apply a lighter coat of product to the inside of arms. Very important to blend and overlap on arms. Blend lightly around armpit. Do not apply directly to armpit.
FEET: Mix moisturizer with treatment in equal parts. Apply lightly, but thoroughly, to the tops of the feet blending onto the ankle, where the application began.
FACE: Blend product from neck, onto face.
HANDS: Mix moisturizer with treatment in equal parts. Apply lightly, but thoroughly, to the tops of hands, blending onto wrists. Remember to detail hands by wiping palms thoroughly as well as in between fingers.
FINISHING TOUCHES: Utilize your prepared damp cloth to thoroughly wipe the palms of your hands and inside of your fingers. Roll a small soft hand towel and using the smooth side of the rolled towel, very lightly sweep over outer edges of armpits, wrists, ankles, hands, feet and the inside of arms. This will help blend application.
