          Will return. I have to apply everyday if I want a sheer tan. And that is what I want...a sheer tan. I just don't want to have to apply everyday, wait for it to dry (doesnt really dry), and then apply sunscreen which makes the tanner come off on my hand. Or skip the sunscreen(NO!) and wash off the tanner at night. Because it washes off! Convienient if you have leisure time every morning. I don't.

            I was skeptical to get this product due to mixed reviews. I must say that I am confused by this. I found the product to be great! When I first apply it seems like it does nothing but after waiting ten minutes I can notice a difference. As the day progresses you get a nice glow. It has been so effective that I have only been using powder instead of both liquid foundation and powder. My only issue is that even with a mitt there are time when there is a streak or two. Good powder will cover this, however.

            I have fair skin and this provides a good base tan for me.

            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.

                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.

                    Although you can use Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner on the body, one 1.7 fl. oz. tube may not stretch very far! We recommend instead using the Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner for the body, since it is a 6 oz. bottle.

You can certainly adjust the frequency in which you apply Faux Tan to achieve the look you desire.

                    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.

                    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.

                    This product is formulated without parabens and artificial oils, so it should not cause breakouts.

                  Does the faux tan come off in salt water or is it affected by chlorinated pool water

                    A:

                    Faux Tan won’t necessarily come off in the pool or in salt water, but just the nature of being in these two bodies of water (heavily chlorinated or salinized) has the potential to dry out the skin which could shorten the lifespan of the tan. To maintain a great tan for as long as possible, it’s always important to keep the skin moisturized, especially during activities that could cause skin dryness.

                  I have never used a self tanner on my face. Will this product "tan" any blonde facial hair or otherwise?

                    This product does not have any effect on facial hair. It develops a tan color on skin only.

                  Will using my clarisonic daily make the tanner be pretty much pointless? Since the clarisonic is pretty exfoliating I always figured id be putting a face tanner on then taking it right off... Does anyone use that combo but stilll get good results?

                    The exfoliation the Clarisonic provides is ideal to prep skin to apply this product for a smooth and even application; however, using the Clarisonic after your tan develops may quicken its fading.
