Designer Skin Black Noir 22X Bronzer

Black Noir Tanning Lotion Black Noir is a brand new 2012 tanning lotion from Designer Skin that they describe as a successor to Black 20X.

In you’re not familiar, Black 20X was the original “Black” lotion released a few years ago, but continues to be a best-seller today. It set the bar for other lotions to match, and many tried to, including a bunch that just tried to piggy-back off the success of the name (DS claims that 45 other products with a similar name have entered the market since its debut).

Fast forward a few years and we have Black Noir, a 22X Black Label Private Reserve bronzer lotion that contains ultra-pure DHA and Erythulose to get you super dark. Despite the fact that this product doesn’t have any hemp-based ingredients (which can provide ultimate moisturization) its Magical Silicone Emulsion will leave your skin radiant and silky smooth.

There are also ingredients in this lotion to help produce color faster and provide some anti-aging benefits. DS also boasts that their SunStay Technology and Fade Defying Formula help maintain and prolong the life of your tan.

Black Noir hasn’t been out very long at the time of this writing, but the feedback so far has been very positive. The fact that Designer Skin is positioning this lotion right there at the top among Luminary and Black 20X also adds to its credibility.

This lotion comes in a gold sparkly bottle and has a refreshing citrus scent with a twist. The standard 13.5oz bottle retails for $110.00 and 0.5oz sample packets can run upwards of $10-$15 each.

    The product left streaks in places a spray tan would. I rubbed it in well and used a generous amount. It also left an orange hue to my palms and webbing of fingers. My husband used the product and it did the same to him. We will not use again.

    I love it! I have tried numerous different lotions throughout the years, and this by far my favorite! I love the smell, and the way its not sticky on my skin! I noticed my skin darker after one tanning session! I usually indoors in my personal tanning bed! I have natural olive skin, and this lotion really makes the difference! I would Definitely rate this lotion a 10!

    BEST Bronzing lotion ever! I am a daily tanner ( i know not good) but I hit a plateau and this lotion kicked right through it. I noticed my skin was very supple and soft afterwards. Doesn’t have an odd smell after tanning either! I usually use Paint It Black, it works wonders but this really kicks it up a notch!

    I wanted to get a really good bronzer lotion so I went with this one, the price was kind of high but I couldn’t resist. The guy at my tanning salon suggested this one to me so I chose this one. I do like it, and I have only used it twice so far and have seen amazing results but yes it can leave streaks from the bronzer. So, I mean I like it a lot but you just have to rub it in really well..

    This tanning lotion was okay, I’ve tried way better to say the least, even after rubbing the lotion in very well I still got streaky sometimes from the bronzer in it, and I didn’t even get that tan from it from a whole month. and i tan VERY easily, so i was kinda dissapointed because of how much money i spent on this.

    This is the best lotion I have ever used. You can see the results after the first tanning session. Wonderful Lotion with a great smell. The lotion is so silky and leaves your skin so smooth after tanning. This is now my all time favorite lotion. Worth the price for sure
