Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner
Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner
I bought this sunless tanner because I was frustrated at my lack of color now that Fall is starting up. I was a little nervous, because of the mixed reviews, but I love it! The amber color was a little scary, but it does really help to see where you apply it. It has given me a great color. I especially love how I can apply it to freshly shaved legs and there was no irritation! (I always get bumps on my legs when I apply lotions/creams too soon). This was a big seller for me.
Once you apply and get the color you want, it lasts about a week before you need to apply again.
Tip: Exfoliate your skin before applying!
Using a loofa will do the trick, but it helps prep your skin to be able to absorb all the beautiful color, and will make your tan last longer.
Tip: Use latex/rubber gloves to apply it for a more even color!
I use latex/rubber gloves when applying it because when I first started using it (and I rubbed it in with my bare hands) my palms would absorb a lot of the product, not only staining them, but I had to use more in order to get it on the rest of my body. It also took a little bit of scrubbing to get it all off my palms. Now, when I use the latex gloves, it spreads more evenly, doesn't discolor my palms, and allows me to use more of the product.
I use this in conjunction with the Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner.
NEVER AGAIN !!!!!
I wish I had found the reviews listed below before I purchased my trusted product three day before my wedding. I have very fair skin and after many years of trying every product out there I found this one. I have used it for years! Last year my guy bought me four bottles and that is what I have been using. I bought my LAST bottle to use before my wedding so I would have a beautiful tan while in my strapless gown. Only to watch my tan wash off and go down the drain two hours before my wedding! Can’t reapply because it will rub off on my gown… So I got to be all white and blotchy for my wedding… Perfect! NEVER AGAIN
Best false tan in my opinion
I love this tan so much. I'm vampire pale, and it gives a lovely, natural glow without looking orange. Fades well too - other tans have been good but looked scaly when fading.
Goes on a dream, develops into a lovely colour and doesn't stink! Brilliant all rounder.
absolutly love this product! It didn't leave any streaks and it left such a beautiful natural looking color. And thats just with one application people! I just can't get over the color. Most sunless tanners leave an orange looking color, the Bare Minerals leaves a real tan color, brownish, not orange in any way. The lotion itself if super dark brown and looks weird when you are applying it but it turns into a gorgeous color I promise! It doesn't have a bad smell either which is a plus and it's not greasy at all!
A tip: shower before applying this lotion, shave and exfoliate (scrub yourself)!! Use gloves when you apply the lotion so you won't have to wash your hands afterwards, if you wash your hands after applying the lotion you could leave behind streaks.
I also highly recommend the Faux Tan Face lotion as well. I bought both and they are my new favs! So for anyone who doubts this product, try it, you will love it!
the best i've used!
I've tried many many sunless tanners and this is the ONLY one that works for me! It smells great, goes on very easy and lasts a few days before I need to reapply. Yesterday I received compliments from some ladies. They complemented me on my tan and I couldn't help but share that it was from a bottle! Told them to check out Bare Minerals website to find it. I always exfoliate first, use a good moisturizer, put on latex gloves and apply the tanner. It dries quickly and smells so much better than the others I've used. You won't go wrong with this tanner!!
Don't use the brush with this one!
I had been using the original Faux Tan self-tanner for over two years and was obsessed. It was the only self-tanner that never streaked on my very fair skin when I used the brush to apply it. Well, I decided to try this new version due to the price point and paraben-free formula. I used the brush to apply it and had a very difficult time spreading it on my skin. The bronzer in it would ball up in small sticky clumps no matter how I brushed it on. After I took a shower the next morning, I had a weird uneven tone all over my arms and stomach, not really streaks but just subtle lighter and darker spots. I was so upset!!! It just looked weird - like someone had thrown dirt on me or something. Thought I had wasted my money until I applied it the next day on my back using a hand towel tied to a large spatula with a hairband (my make-shift back applicator). It went on so smoothly!!!! I used the same thing to apply it all over and it looked just as perfect as the original. I just wish I would have known before buying a brand new brush with it!
Thankful for this product!
I am a very fair skinned young woman and I am careful as to how I treat my skin. I am certainly not laying out in the sun anymore, due to skin cancer at the age of 16 b/c of the sun and tanning beds. I have used the Faux Tan in the past, and have now bought the new and improved Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner. I am very pleased with the results. Tip: Kroger brand vinyl disposable gloves will flawlessly apply the tanner on without any streaks or discoloration (trust me)! You will really benefit by using (only) these gloves, because I've tried another type, and these are wonderful. So HAPPY and so proud of my gorgeous tan! I have had guys look at me in a great way, while at the pool the other day =). I love this healthy version of an awesome tan!
I'm not sure why so many people are giving the new formula a bad rap. Its sooo much better than the first one minus the parabens! The smell is not great but the color is natural. I think people need to remember to exfoliate first, but don't believe the negative reviews its great! Natural looking! By far the best self tanner I've ever used and i've tried over 20. Price went up $4 a bottle, boo to that.
MISS THE ORIGINAL
WHY DID THEY HAVE TO REINVENT THE WHEEL- THE ORIGINAL WAS GREAT! IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO FIND THE PERFECT TANNING PRODUCT THAT WAS NATURAL LOOKING & AFFORDABLE. IT WAS A "MUST HAVE" PRODUCT IN MY BOOK OF BEAUTY SECRETS. VERY DISAPPOINTING- PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL......
great self tanner
I have used a lot of self tanners over the years and none of them seemed to work. They would be streaky or blotchy or turn orange. This one doesn't, It looks perfectly natural. It is a nice light brown and looks like you have been out it the sun. Be sure to exfoliate before applying and you will have a very natural looking tan. I love all BE but this is one of my faves for summer.
