A bit tricky
Start with a small amount to rub into your skin. Avoid the knees & elbows, as this will be some what darker than surrounding skin. Put your under clothing on before the gel. If I'm in a hurry, I will blot my skin with a couple of toilet paper squares. This will absorb the excess if I'm in a hurry to get dressed & get to work. I also use a buff puff to slough off my dry skin for a smoother tanned look as I take a bath.
Be prepared for compliments!!
Pros: sublime, natural, gives a radiant colour

Not great
I like that the product is brown so you can see where you put it and make sure it won't streak. It also instantly gives you a nice tanned glow. It gives you a natural tanned color that lasts for a few days. I don't like the fact that it shimmers, but I could deal with that. What I really don't like about this is how long it takes to absorb and how easily it rubs off on your clothes. . The fact that you have to wait so long for it to absorb into your skin makes this a big hassle to use and I'm not sure I will keep on using this.
Pros: gives a radiant colour

Awful smell!
It seems like this gel delivers the results it promises: it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave streaks. But the smell just makes me gag! It has a strong smell of a rusty metal. One might think that they pulverized a piece of old rusty pipe and added for the color :)
Pros: easy to apply, practical, quick fix

tan all year long!
I love this product. I use it several times a week, and I'm able to keep a good color year round. It does NOT make you orange or streaky at all. I buy it 3 bottles at a time!
Pros: must-have, easy to apply, natural, gives a radiant colour

Shimmering Gel - Face and Body
I've been using the 3 in 1 Shimmering Gel Face and Body for a very long time and love it. Now that it is discontinued I tried the new product Shimmering Gel Face and Body for the first time. It works just as great. I get a nice golden brown color just like with the other one. I think the new one dries faster than the old one. It is easy to apply. The color looks very natural and I always get compliments on my tan. I would highly recommend this product.

Not nearly as good as the Bronze Nature
I had high hopes for this tanner when I first bought it. But it didn't deliver: it leaves streaks, it doesn't get absorbed into the skin fast, the color rubs off easily, even after a day or two of drying on the skin (I think the drier it gets the more it rubs off!) I have ruined clothing because of it (thank god that at least it washes off). The color is way too orange. I think Yves Rocher should discontinue this one and keep putting out the 3-in-1 Bronze Nature shimmer self tanner.
Pros: no pros all cons
