Better than the real thing, this customer favorite sunless tanner by bareMinerals instantly delivers an all-over bronze glow that develops into a golden, natural-looking tan that lasts 5-7 days. Look like you've spent a day at the beach without exposure to the sun's harmful rays. A mineral copper complex prolongs the tanning effects, while aloe vera and vegetable-derived emollients provide hydration so skin feels soft and smooth. Want to look like you've basked in the sun longer? Build a deeper tan by reapplying.

Formulated without parabens and artificial oils.
For best results, exfoliate before application. Smooth evenly all over body. You see the amber color as you're applying it, so you know exactly where it goes, or if you've missed a spot. To avoid discoloring palms, wash hands with soap and water immediately after use. Allow application to dry for several minutes before dressing.

    Comments about BareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

    I use this product on my face and body. I'm very fair, pink undertone and blotchy at this time of year. I mix this in the palm of my hand with Clinique yellow moisturizer and apply over my face, neck and chest. I mix it with Philosophy Fresh Cream lotion and apply to my legs, arms, etc. I often apply a second coat of straight Faux Tan to wherever I want more color. It smells good and gives a great bronze glow. (Better than spray tan.)

              Comments about BareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

              I am a self tanorexic due to very fair (pale in the winter) skin that rarely tans. Overall, I feel more confident and beautiful when I have a "sun-kissed" glow. I've tried most brands on the market over a decade and a half!

              This has become my GO TO sunless tanning lotion; HOWEVER, it is not a dark tan. I best prefer this during the Fall and Winter months. It dries fast and it is best to apply at night and wear dark clothing or something old to sleep in. I have minimal to no noticeable streaking on the hands, knees, ankles, back (though that is always tricky to apply!) and or underneath the breasts (sweat!). It fades well; however, I still have to really scrub/exfoliate to remove any excess product when starting fresh again to reapply. I apply once a week after shaving and thoroughly exfoliating. Also, I touch up 2-3 times in some areas (bottom half of the legs and the arms) before starting over again. Using a sunless tanning mitt is A MUST for an even tan! These are economical since you can clean and reuse them.

              Overall, I recommend this product.

                    Firstly, when it comes to a product, I consider my budget as long as it will provide a safe and well-tested product. As I will be using his product occasionally, I was will to spend the appropriately $28 to receive a great product which was safe and well-tested and approved. I read ALL of the reviews prior to purchase. I used evening prior to shaving and the afternoon after shaving just prior to an evening party. Please purchase the mitt! I used 2-4 small pumps with one generous pump of my Palmer's cocoa butter lotion in the mitt. I smoothed around a bit with my fingers in the mitt-like mixed by ingredients and incorporated together to form a caramel colored lotion for ease of application. This is a great product and gave me a healthy glow! I mixed a small amount with my face moisturizer and even used on my face without any issues. When used with lotion, this went on smooth with no streaks or uneven tones. Awesome!

                      If your face is greasy, it will build up and make a line of residue. But it's one of the best smelling ones I've used and I've used them all. Plus I work at a tanning salon! This stuff is great.

                          For best results, exfoliate before application. Smooth evenly all over body using hands or a tanning mitt. You see the amber color as you're applying it, so you know exactly where it goes, or if you've missed a spot. To avoid discoloring palms, wash hands with soap and water immediately after use. Allow application to dry for several minutes before dressing. We recommend not scrubbing your body in the shower once you have applied the product to extend the wear.
