Customer Reviews

I do recommend gloves with the application.
Shelli
There is a very slight hint of self tanner smell but it's so faint and doesn't have the usual self tanner smell.
Jenn
This product is easy to apply and looks like a natural tan.

I just bought this and I am SO GLAD I did - I have been using self-tanners for years and this is superior. The "faux tan" is almost better than natural - it doesn't have an orange-y color, the lotion smells wonderful and there are no streaks left behind. It's tinted to help with even application. I really like the bare escentuals line anyway so I wasn't afraid to try another product from them. Well worth the money.

This is the best sunless tanner I've ever used. I've tried St. Tropez, Fake Bake, Clinique etc. and they've never given me any color. I tried the Bare Escentuals Faux Tan, and it's non greasy, dries quickly and has a pleasant smell. I woke up to a beautiful, natural golden color. Twenty two dollars may seem a bit pricey, but it's well worth it. I spent almost fifty dollars on St. Tropez and had to practically use the whole bottle in a week to see any color change. Faux tan is definitely worth the money.

There isn't a self-tanner I haven't tried. I started using Faux Tan about three years ago and it's become part of my regular beauty routine. I try to protect my skin as much as possible, but I love being tan. This is the most natural product I've found. There is a "body brush" available on QVC...make the investment as it makes application a breeze even for the face. You won't be disapointed with this purchase. There is a very slight smell to it...the typical smell, but much less than any other product. The tan lasts for at least 4 days as long as you don't exfoliate. Again, get a brush it made a huge difference!

I haven't tried a lot of self-tanning, tanning lotions, but this is a great product. The color will wash off your hands fairly easily after application. You'll see enhanced color in your skin within hours, and it will last a few days. If you re-apply twice a week, your skin will look healthy and sun-kissed all the time, without the UV rays and skin damage! (I usually apply, give it 20-30 minutes, then put clothes on and go about my day -- trying not to shower for 4-6 hours for max color development.)

Verified Purchase
I find this product to be the most natural looking of the self-tanning lotions. I have tried them all, sprays included. It stays on for a few days, and just needs a light touch-up. I am very fair and never tan, especially on my legs. This is the perfect answer.

This is the best Self Tanner on the market. I have tired probably 20 different ones over the years and nothing works as easily or as well.. A hint... I mix mine with a little Jergens lotion, it goes on smoothly and you use a little less so the bottle lasts longer. I just mix the two together in my hand and keep my hands washed immediately, no stain on hands at all. Yes, I do it quickly.

I'm not a big self tanner to begin with, but I purchased this product to use as an alternative of sitting out in the sun. While it does give you a VERY natural looking tan, it does come at a price. First, don't apply this in the morning thinking you can just go out about your business an hour later. This stuff is incredibly sticky and also goes on very, very dark. In time it fades to its natural color but that won't happen until the next day, so don't apply this if you have something going on later that night. Secondly, also a plus and a minus, one coat is all you need. No multiple applications are required and I was amazed at how tan my skin was the next day. However, this also comes at a price. Any spots you miss will stand out like night to day. Also, if you don't wash your hands well enough expect to have the dirtiest looking hands imaginable.

Now these might be non issues for some, and I must compliment the product on the fact that it does last a good while. However, my biggest issue was apparent a few days into using it. And that is, "you can't use this if you are male". This is because the first time you shave your face all of the tanner will be scrapped off your face do to the fact that shaving is essentially exfoliating the skin. After shaving you WILL look like a clown.

Its hard to rip too much into this sunless tanner since these issues are apparent in every tanner out there. If you use sunless tanners successfully than I highly recommend this product. If you are new to use tanners I would suggest using a cheaper product first in order to test how well your daily activities will effect the lotion. If you have problems with the cheaper tanners don't expect this more expensive tanner to be any different. Needless to say, after about a month of using this product, trying different variations to keep a good "tan", I gave up and stopped using it.

Great tanning lotion! I've tried one other, but this product has it over and above! Good smelling, almost immediate darkening. I had read the recommendations to wear gloves during application...great idea! I use surgical gloves and it goes on smooth and thoroughly! I am recommending it to others who are using a skin damaging tanning booth!! Only a little is needed too! I love it! Will I buy it again when I run out? YES! Excellent product! My only problem is I can't take it in my carry on luggage - too many ounces! A+++++
