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.

        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.

            I'm biracial and always have a tan, my upper & lower body never match. I used this on my legs & the color looked amazing and natural. I've used many self tanners, but most have that orange look. This was natural looking, I received many compliments on my tan!

                      I have fair, freckled skin and red hair. I have tried so many different products and brands till I found Bare Minerals Faux tan. I have been using it for the past 3 years and love it. It allows you full control on how dark or not so dark you want to be. Beings that I'm so fair complected I will apply the faux tan with a body lotion and get a nice subtle glow. In the summer I put it straight on for a deeper color. Buts Its never too dark, always natural looking. For ease of application is best to apply right out of the shower while your skin is still damp, that helps the product glide better. Give it a try!

                      I love this product. It's hard to wash off your hands so next time I will use a mitt. It gives you a very natural looking tan. It does have a bit of "self tanner" smell though...

                          You can use face wash while using the BareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner. We would not suggest using a scrub.

                          Please allow at least 4 hours for your color to fully develop prior to bathing or sweating/exercising. After color has fully developed, there is no need for concern.
