> > HERE'S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW! < < 1. It's best for those with lighter complexions. I'm fair skinned and see a perfect tan color when using. 2. It doesn't smell, which is fantastic. 3. It gives immediate color which helps with application and is super satisfying. 4. The mousse makes this super easy.
HERE'S HOW YOU DO LEGS FOR BEST RESULTS! (and I've been using this for a while) 1. Exfoliate and shave in the shower. Dry off and use NO lotion. (best time to do this is about 4-5 hours before bed) 2. When you're completely dry, put on the gloves. 3. Put mousse in your hand. About the size of a small apple. 4. Work quickly. Start by using your empty glove to use a little of the mousse and smear atop your foot and then in short strokes up and along and around your leg. As soon as you've spread all of it over the lower part of your leg, rub it all in with both hands with good pressure and rapidly. It will give you an even application. 5. Do the same for your knees and upper legs. Make sure you rub around your ankle and knee while moving them around to get any loose skin. 6. Do the other leg. Look in the mirror or have someone else look to see what you've missed. Touch those up with small amounts and rub them in well. 7. Wear shorts or underwear and go about your evening. If it's hot, try not to sit and bend your knees so you don't sweat behind them. 8. After 4-5 hours, step into the shower and with slightly warm water, rinse away the guide color. Don't rub your legs or use soap. 9. You're left with perfect color. Let air dry or gently pat with a dark colored towel.
This will last 3 days. If you wear lotion it may last a little longer. Wear sunscreen when outdoors. You can still burn, remember that!
My husband says I look like I have an awesome tan with this stuff. We are outdoor lovers so this is nice to have.
I'm a seasoned veteran of "tan in a can" and I really do like this one. I've recently been using Vita Liberta but it's way too expensive. This is very similar to it. It has a red/green base (not orange/yellow) which I love. The foam comes out very smooth and rich. The problem with it is that it dries almost instantly. You don't have 2 minutes to smooth it out ... you have literally seconds so you HAVE to go fast! You really need to order the mitt to get a super smooth even tan. The second negative is the smell -- it's like your Grandma's rose scent from 1942 and it's awful and very strong. If you love rose scent, you might dig on it, but I'm not a fan. It does go away fairly quickly, thankfully.
All in all, this is one of my favorite tanners because of the color and the texture is similar to Vita but this is about 1/4 to 1/3 of the price. I will be using this brand all summer!
This was the first Fake Bake product I ordered & I was really disappointed. Unless I got a really old bottle, this one was really thick & hard & would not color me at all. I gave up & threw it in the trash. However, I ordered the Fake Bake in the LOTION & I love it! It comes with a mitt that I wash out each time I use it & it air dries in no time. The lotion is great & it is instant color, so you can vividly see where you are putting it on & no lines visable at all. I reapply every other night after I shower. It is a very real looking color also......BUT I DO NOT RECOMMENT THE MOUSE!
This mousse tanner is by far my favorite. I have never had it come off on my clothes or sheets. It's easy to use and doesn't streak. I just use the gloves that comes with it. My only complaint is I wish it came in a darker shade too.
Easy to apply but be advised this dries very fast! The color is great, but I'd reccomend using a mitt instead so you can apply the mousse much faster and it will spread smoothly in one motion unlike with the gloves provided. Color guide is awesome though, and it's true to the instant result that's promised. Since it's so light and airy it is very easy to apply another coat as needed throughout the day. Blends pretty well!
This used to dry to a matte finish and was ideal for use on the face. Now it is too emollient, takes forever to dry and must be patted down with a dry cloth or towel. Be sure to wash it off at night, unless you want a face full of breakouts in the morning. Very disappointed with this new formulation, but it DOES still give the most realistic looking color. Sadly, you'll be blotting all day long, even after the dry down. I'd give it two and a half stars. There must be a better product out there.
