Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner:

I researched the face tanners before purchasing this product. I wear sunscreen religiously on my face and as a result it is much paler than the rest of my skin. So I needed something to try to add some color. What I absolutely love about this product is the shade – the color is so natural. It is not orange at all. When I first pumped some out of the tube I was almost shocked at how olive it looked – but once its Smoothed over the skin it looks amazingly natural. The one drawback is that I have difficulty in building the color. I have tried putting on one layer, letting it dry, and then adding another – and I don't really seem to notice any difference. I put some on every night after my normal bedtime routine and it doesn't really seem to build from day today either. It does add a very natural darker shade to the skin, I just wish I could build it to be a little bit darker to match the rest of my tan.

      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.

          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.

              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?

            • Staff Reviewer

              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.

              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.
