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 liked it a lot! Dries fast so has to be applied quickly and in small amounts. Bottle is a good size for the price. I recommend applying with a tan mitt as it stains your hands quickly. I bought the St. Tropez mitt and it worked well. The only problem was that the next day it made my skin feel a little sticky and left a weird ofor.

      My absolutely favorite sunless-tanner. Applies evenly and smoothly with a mit. I have fair skin and this gives me the perfect "sun kissed" glow. A lot of self tanners are too orange or leave streaks, but I have no complaints about this one. Plus, no bad odor! A must try

        Comments about BareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

        I have used self tanners off and on for several years. I had initially tried this product when it was first introduced on an air shopping channel. It worked but was difficult to blend, smelly, and tacky. I read the reviews and thought I would give it another try for the spring months. I used a mitt and used a lotion with the tanner as recommended in another review. Wow, I was so pleased. It came out very nicely and the hands/feet looked good also. I went to bed after allowing it to dry. It did not take long but I did not time it because I was doing chores while I was waiting for it to dry. There was no yucky smell, no stained sheets , and I woke with a nice tan. I even got compliments from my co-workers because they usually tease me about getting my summer orange on. So if you are looking for a natural light tan. Give this a try. I also reapplied after several days again with the lotion mixture to keep it going. I have had no patchy or unnatural fading.

          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.)

                  • Q:

                    If I have brown spots on my legs from previous sun damage, does this product make those brown spots darker? That's the problem I always have! If it makes my skin brown, the brown spots get even more noticeable! The only thing I've found to remedy this is Sally Hansen makeup for legs Tanner, which kind of makes my legs dry looking. �� Any ideas on if this product will make my legs look like a spotted leopard? �� I'd love for this product to be my solution after trying literally everything on the market!

                      Hello Always Searching,

                      The BareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner may make spots appear darker as it develops a tan from your natural tone (including spots). This may not be the best option for you.

                      Hello Jen- we would recommend reapplying BareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner the next day to review the first layer and how it has developed first. Exfoliating would not be necessary the day after your first application.

                      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.
