Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner

Item #: 2257838 Size: 6.0 oz

Ask a Question
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.

              I've been using this for my face and body to enhance my natural tan! I'll add a little to my moisturizer and then apply it to my face with a large kabuki brush. For my body I'll just pump the color directly on the brush and buff it in to my body. Since I'm putting it on already tan skin, the color looks great but I'm sure it'd appear a little less natural on pale skin as all self tanners tend to look.

                    Use this both in your face and body using the St Tropez sponge mitt and you'll have a nice natural looking tan in minutes. It dries so quickly I can get dressed almost immediately.

                        I used a self tanner about 10 years ago by the same company and I loved it. After I couldn't find it for years I tried other self tanners. They made me break out in hives. Is this the same formula as before? And what would possibly case me to get hive from the other brands?

                          For best results, we recommend exfoliating prior to application. This will ensure that the product applies smoothly and evenly so that you don't see any streaks or blotchiness as the color develops. We hope this extra info helps!

                          If you typically shower once a day we recommend applying just after showering, allow to dry and then don't shower until the next day when you would normally do so. For best results, exfoliate skin with a body scrub or loofah while in the shower. After allowing skin to dry, apply Faux Tan evenly all over the body. To avoid discoloring palms, wash hands with soap and water immediately after use. Allow application to dry for several minutes before dressing

                          Though this formula can be used on the face, please note that it is not gradual and delivers deep color with one application. Try instead bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner (Item #: 2257837), which is specially formulated for the face and delivers a subtle, golden glow that gradually develops into a natural-looking tan over time:
