The smell of this product is ok. It fades quickly after the tan though. It doesn't leave me smelling bad, so I'm ok with that. However, I had to used it 3 or 4 times before I started to see results. And then after a shower, it is as if the results are gone immediately. It doesn't last! I've used other Ed Hardy tanning products and this does not seem to be up to their standards of quality. I will say that this lotion did leave my skin feeling very silky and soft. It will stain your hands so be sure to wash them quickly after applying. Also, be sure to rub the lotion in well because it will leave you streaky if you don't!
