Fake Bake

5 Minute Mousse

7.0 oz Item 2285148

Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse is the perfect "ready to wear" tan. You can achieve an instant luxurious deep bronze color with this fuss free, fool proof tanning mousse. Thanks to Fake Bake's cutting edge "color lock-down technology", this lightweight, super-fast drying self-tanning mousse with non-transfer formula will allow you to achieve beautifully bronzed skin with zero drying time. You can dress and be out the door in minutes. A natural golden glow continues to develop with long lasting results.
Shake well before each application. Always wear gloves enclosed. Should be applied to clean skin free from oils, perfumes and deodorant. Prior use of Fake Bake Scrub is recommended to remove any dead skin cells to achieve a smooth even tan. Dries fast, so apply in one area at a time. Apply in a circular motion and if you miss a spot, re-apply over the area. You can apply a second application if you desire a darker tan. Buff skin lightly with a dry towel before dressing. When showering you may notice a small amount of color washing off but your tan will remain.

Precautions: Avoid contact with eyes. This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while in UV rays may increase your risk of skin aging, skin cancer or other harmful effects of the sun. Patch test required if first use of a self-tanner. Apply on inside of arm - wait 24 hours - if irritation occurs discontinue use. Do not apply to damaged, irritated or sensitive skin. Keep out of reach of children

    Comments about Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse:

    I've used this product and the spray fake bake tanner. The mousse is a little harder to apply in my opinion and you have to use it several days in a row to get good results. It leaves a very sticky feeling for a few hours after applying, definitely doesn't dry in 5 minutes. The mousse doesn't transfer onto my clothes like the spray kind does but the results aren't as good as the spray kind. There is no bad smell so that is a plus. I'd recommend this brand to a friend but maybe not this exact product.

    Comments about Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse:

    I've used the 5 Minute Mousse a few times. The mousse applies easy and starts to develop color right away. It dries quickly but leaves my skin feeling sticky for hours, even after wiping excess off with a towel. The description says you can get dressed right after applying the mousse and it won't rub off but it definitely does rub off onto your clothes. The color doesn't last very long either. Most of the color is gone after one shower. Overall, I would only suggest this for a quick-fix if you need a quick tan and don't mind if it transfers to the inside of your clothes. If you're looking for something to last a little longer then go with a different product.

      Comments about Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse:

      Applies easily & dries super fast. Some color develops instantly, then continues to develop throughout the day. This tanner is great for (every morning) when I am running late for work, but have to get some color on my legs before I walk out the door.

        Comments about Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse:

        I was surprised how quickly it dried and could see color. I really liked how thick and dry the foam was. It looks really natural, but it did extenuate any dark spots or acne marks I had. So maybe I need to exfoliate a little better. The "mits" it comes with are just rubber gloves, which made me laugh. But overall it was pretty good for the price. My all time fave tanner is the St. Tropez foam, but this is a close second.

        Comments about Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse:

        I'm not sure why this stiff doesn't work on me. I affiliated, took a shower, dried off and applied. the very next day, it was completely gone except a few patches on my knees.

            I have a very fair complexion and have always been a huge fan of all Fake Bake self tanners because of their ease of use, even color and non-orange results. This one is so nice because you can just apply it and go. I love that you don't have to put it on the night before. I am also a huge fan of their 60 Minute and Flawless products.

              This is a great self tanner. I have a fair complexion and this gives me a nice color. I was skeptical after reading some negative reviews, but I think they may have applied it wrong or without reading the directions first.
