      Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner:

      I did overall like this product. I loved the natural, olive based color it gave. The color developed quickly and evenly. With the amber color it gives off while applying it's easy not to miss any areas. The only downfall was that I did notice a breakout and clogged poors after using it.

        I read the reviews prior to buying and was not disappointed. However, it did fade overnight and for me, it would have to be applied daily or at least every other day. It just was not for me!

          Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner:

          I have tried every facial self tanner that ulta carries, literally but this is the best one. I have combination skin and it doesn't cause me to break out like some do. It also has a nice natural glow and not orangey at all. You get a nice immediate glow from it. Some days I just put this on instead of my regular BB cream and it conceals imperfections while giving me a healthy glow. To get the most out of the product exfoliate before using it then apply it evenly going down the neck. I use it a few nights a week to maintain a nice color too.

            Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner:

            I had previously been using Bare Minerals Faux Tan Body for my face because I just could not justify spending $2 less for such a small container, I just figured I would buy the larger bottle of the two and use that strictly for my face (my face turns pale in the winter while the rest of my body remains tan so I only needed a self-tanner for my face) and although the Faux tan body worked O.K., I did not think it was performing as well as it should. So I bought this and the difference is amazing! My tan actually stays and is build-able with this product which I could not do with the other. LOVE!

                A:

                bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner is formulated with a unique tanning peptide that delivers a subtle, golden glow that gradually develops into a natural-looking tan over time. You can certainly adjust the frequency in which you apply Faux Tan to achieve the look you desire.

              After using this product, is there a certain amount of time that you need to wait before washing your face/getting it wet? If so, how long do you recommend?

                A:

                It will vary depending on the level of tan you are seeking to achieve. Generally, it is recommended to wait for at least 6-8 hours before showering/ washing your face in order for the color to fully develop. Another great tip is to apply Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner before going to sleep, then cleanse the skin as normal in the morning.

                bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner features an amber color as you're applying it, so you know exactly where it goes, or if you've missed a spot.

              Is this product to be applied to only the face or the neck as well. I just would want to avoid having a color difference between the two.

                You can certainly apply Faux Tan on your neck, just be sure to blend well to prevent any streaking. We also recommend applying it to the ears and blending to ensure a completely natural look.

                This product features a moisturizing formula, so you may not need additional moisturizer! For best results, we recommend applying bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner to bare skin. Allow several minutes for it to fully absorb, then follow with your other skincare products.

              I work out often including heated yoga classes and am wondering if the tan will streak or run when I sweat. I am also wondering if I apply it several hours before bed if it will stain my sheets.

                Applying several hours before bed will ensure that the product will not transfer onto sheets. Please note that if you allow a few hours for your color to fully develop before doing any activities that will make you sweat, you will not experience streaking.
