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 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.

I was hopeful about this self tanner. Great reviews and the fact that it didn't have an overpowering self tanner smell or overly fragranced to mask the self tanner smell. But I found it unimpressive. It does have a pleasant smell and no self tanner stink. But that makes me wonder if the ingredient that makes your skin tan is not very plentiful in this tanner. That's why it doesn't have that strong self tanner smell. Because I don't think my skin actually "tanned". I think it only stained my skin. Judging from my hands and how many times I had to wash them to get the brown off, makes me think this self tanner is simply a really good stain. I only applied it every other day and found that by the next application the color was fading and not fading evenly. I didn't think I looked horribly blotchy, but I could see areas on my legs that definitely looked more faded than others. The day of application, I looked pretty evenly tanned and not orange or fake. But by the second day, uneven fading and sort of orangey. I think I've gotten better results with Loreal's Deep Bronzer. Just wish the tanners that work didn't stink or didn't have some horrible fragrance. This would have been good if it only produced better results.

I have very fair, freckled skin that never had any business being in the sun, but I abused myself for years laying in the sun trying to get tan. I finally stopped such foolishness, and turned to self tanners. They were OK, but orangy and smelled. Two years ago, a friend turned me on to Bare Escentuals Faux Tan. OMG!!! This has been the most amazing self tan product ever, and I have tried them all! (I do recommend gloves with the application.) I always exfoliate, shave, etc before application. The product might seem odd coming out of the bottle, with its dark, muddy green color. Rest assured, you will not turn green. In my opinion, the scent is lovely - sort of almond like. I apply it in circular motions all over. Afterward, I use a damp cotton ball to dab my knees, elbows, etc. so that these naturally rougher areas of the body don't absorb more color and appear too dark. Faux Tan will give you some instant color upon application, but continues to darken over the next few hours. I apply it at night, then I go to bed (I often lay an old sheet on top of my nice sheets on the nights I jump into bed with a fresh application of Faux Tan on.) Then in the morning - voila!! Tanned! Bare Escentuals Faux Tan is so natural looking, doesn't smell, gives you rich lovely color, and makes you feel good all over!! For those of you who choose to shave your legs and not wax, a nice touch up after shaving is to mix some Faux Tan with lotion and apply it on your lower legs. If you desire a darker tan, just apply it 2 - 3 nights in a row. If you are new to self tanning products, the application process may sound like a lot of work. Once you get the hang of it, it isn't. I can get it applied and dab the excess off my knees and elbows in 3 - 5 minutes max. Happy Tanning!

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.)
