Have used it about 10 years. No side effects (except libido, which is kid of fun), just the pain of the needle and slight seasick during 10 min after injection. My skin not only tans, it looks much!!! healthier. My skin doctor agrees. I can not understand why why cant buy it over the desk!! I can buy beer and cigarettes which are very bad, but not this lifesaving drug!!

I am of Irish descent . Light blue eyes, natural blonde and very very white skin with very few moles. I have always burnt badly every summer as a child. Blisters and severe pain year after year.

Comment:
I've been using this product for less than a month and already have a good base tan the only problem is that when it says darkening of the skin around your moles and stuff the moles itself got darker which is no problem but if you have dark circles under your eyes then be prepared to have them get even darker. I can still conceal the circles with makeup but I'm not sure for how much longer ... Show Full Comment
