    Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

    I've been using this for at least 10 years now. I'm very pale and tan slightly Every other product leaves me orange. This one does not. I've even.turned several friends on to this who have different skin tones and it works for everyone. Use sparingly With the gloves enclosed in a circular motions on moisturized skin and you will have the most natural glow. i love the emediate tan results and the long lasting effect. I wouldn't use this on your face. There is a specific product for that. The negative is it can come off slightly on white clothing but will not stain and washes out.

        Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

        I have some years of experience using self tanners, getting spray tanned, and naturally tanning by sun or tanning booth. This self tanner is pretty good but not as amazing as it's been hyped up to be. The texture is pretty light weight and dries pretty quick. I apply this at night after I shower and exfoliate. This product smells pretty bad but the next day the smell is gone whether you shower in the morning or not. The tanner is def streak free and has the color guard which allows you to know where your applying the lotion. Being that there is the color guard in the lotion, when you shower the next morning after applying it at night the color guard is rinsed off in the shower and your real color is left. That is not ur tan coming off in the shower it's the color guard. But I like how dark the color guard makes me so I leave it the next morning. The color is def more brown with a natural red undertone which makes it look like a normal sun tan. However, I'm very pale ( typical red hair, freckles with pale skin) and when this tanner is on my face, chest, and arms it looks more brown. But on the inside of my arms, legs, where I'm even paler, the color looks kind of yellow. The tan last like 5 days max before I need to reapply. The color is not as dark as I thought it would be after one application but that's good bc it allows for more control by building up the color. Overall, def better than most products and I would buy it again but it just wasn't as good as it was hyped up to be.

              I have tried a lot of drug store brands and they do not work so I found this ! This product dries very quickly , is fool proof as in you cannot get streaks or smudges, has no orange at all which was a big plus , smell is mild compared to other tanners but still fairly noticeable before rinsed off in the morning , and fades away very evenly . The only draw back is that it lasts for a good 3-4 days before fading when it's claim is 7 , but I would still highly recommend it !! Best Iv used as a pro and will try their other products ! Btw use at night and leave on for 6 hours for best results

                I apply this product after I have exfoliated and before I go to bed. I let it dry then sleep with an old sheet, in the morning I wake up, shower and wala awesome color. It works great on hands and feet, I apply those areas with a cotton ball. The color is fabulous, the smell is ok, not the worse that I have smelled.

                This product gives a beautiful color and goes on easily.
                I applied this after a shower and on freshly shaved legs, I do not break out easily but I am guessing applying this directly after shaving was not a good idea. It caused each pore to raise up and it was not noticeable to anyone else, but I could feel each tiny little bump. It was like I had been bitten by little gnats all over my legs.
                I guess I'll apply a while after shaving next time.
                After applying this I went straight to bed, it rubbed off onto my white sheets and when I woke up the smell of fake tanner was over whelming. I Immediately took a shower and noticed that almost all of the color was washing down the drain.
                What little color remained was very nice. I could have reapplied multiple times after the first but I did not have the chance. Even 4 days after the first time the color was rubbing off onto my bra, shorts, and towels. Also the color was not very dark. I already had an established tan, and it did not take me to the next level of med to dark.

                But for what color I got from this I would definitely use it again. It has the typical self-tanning problems. No biggie

                Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

                I just bought this product yesterday for the first time. I had heard pros and cons but wanted to give it a shot. I am very fair and most self-tanners turn me oompa-loompa orange. This was great! A little awkward to apply at first as it looks like black shoe polish and comes out rather "liquidy" - not like the other OTC tanners which are much thicker. The bottle was much smaller than the box so I was a tad disappointed at first, but you don't need much so it should last much more than an entire season.

                It has a nice brown tint going on, so you can't miss areas but getting it thin enough and covering what you want to tan was a little tricky. BUT it takes just a little practice and a great mirror to get it right and VIOLA!!!!!!!!! Gorgeous color ( after sleeping thru the night - yes I applied it earlier as not to risk damaging the bed linens) and I woke up looking naturally, healthily bronzed. Truly impressed. :)

                No missed spots, streaks or orange! Terrific product. I will certainly re-purchase.

                Smells good when applying, but it's stomach-churning when you step out of bed in the morning! It literally made me gag! Now my sheets stink and I usually don't like to shower in the morning, but will have to if I ever use it again.
