I think the ingredients have settled, try mixing the dry goods before you take out what you need.

I have been using an auto tanner now for over a year and have yet to ever check PH. Maybe your using another method then the one I use. I use the crystals that I get from Steve R. I thaught they were the same ones in Van Dykes but I could be wrong. Just curious is that what the instructions said to do is check the PH and add acid to lower if to high? Are the crystals cheaper from Van Dykes then from Steve? Just wondering Jack F
