Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

This self tanner gives a very real color & lasts longer than most tanners I have used. Does have an odor but not as offensive as some. I will continue to use this product.

    Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

    Fantastic product! Gives an even, natural tan that's immediate. Smell is pleasant, not like other lotions I've used. A little goes a long way which makes the bottle last longer and the price tolerable. Only caution is to make sure you wash your hands frequently or wear gloves to apply.

    Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

    After terrible experiences with sunless tanning, I am so happy to find one that looks so natural. It works very well on fair skin. I apply with a tanning mitt to avoid dark hands. I also apply in small amounts to ensure even tanning. Remember, you can always apply more later to darken. I find that two applications gives the perfect tan. My only wish would be that it lasted longer. But it is totally worth the money!

    AWESOME looking tan!!!!

    By Liesa

    from Sheboygan Falls, WI

    Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

    I have tried my self tanners and this one worked perfect! I exfoliated first and used a self tanner mitt (due to other reviews of staining hands) and got a great natural looking tan. Did not have any funny looking splotches, and the smell was great. Defiantly worth the money!

      I've tried MANY self tanners of all cost/brands. This product is my latest find that I am SO happy with!! It produces an even, natural tan. Yes, it looks bad on your palms, although washes off perfectly with bar soap and a wash cloth.

        Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

        This is one of my favorite self tanners. It's not super dark, but I suppose multiple layers would get you there. What I love is how even and natural it looks. Smells like cherry almond, just like the Jergens original lotion (not tanning lotion), Xen Tan, and Sun Labs. Love the scent.
        This is one of two brands I will trust using on my hands and feet. It creates a natural even tan, even on spots you'd think would be troublesome to fake tan.
        I also find it lasts quite awhile. When using just this, I probably only apply it 2 times a week, maybe 3 at most.
        It's also affordable. Can't say anything badly about it, really! I recommend!

          Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

          I found this to be the most natural looking of all other sunless tanners I've used. The smell is not too noticeable. The brush made it easy to apply. I was able to see how and where it was applied right away and if I needed more. I applied a light moisturizer first which I thought made it a smoother application. The color was very natural, it lasted close to a week and gradually faded. I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

              To avoid color transfer, allow application to dry for several minutes before dressing.

          • Q:

            I bought this product recently because off all the good reviews and in hopes I would love it enough to stop tanning in a bed. And I really love it the only problem is I can't figure out how to put it on my feet without looking fake or turning orange. My feet look horrible every time I use this and my hands do too. But the rest of my body looks amazing. Please help!!!

              A:

              For hands, feet, elbows, and knees, first exfoliate using a body scrub, then apply a body moisturizer to these spots and allow it to absorb into the skin prior to applying Faux Tan. This will help to diffuse the color for a more natural look!

              Though this formula can be used on the face and neck, please note that it is not gradual and delivers deep color with one application. Try instead bareMinerals Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner (Item #: 2257837), which is specially formulated for the face and delivers a subtle, golden glow that gradually develops into a natural-looking tan over time: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5160179

          • Q:

            I have sensitive skin. I am pale. My dermatologist said keep trying different products if you want to see if one will not make your skin red and bumpy. So far no luck- does this product have different ingredients than most over the counter self tanners? With out knowing what my "allergic reaction" is to specifically, this is becoming an expensive challenge. And all to stay out of the tanning bed. Please help!

          • Q:

            I have been laying in a tanning bed for awhile, but I'm starting to worry about wrinkles and the health risks. So I was wondering how long a bottle of this lasts? I would probably be using it every 2-3 days. How long does a bottle last for you?

              A:

              One bottle should last 2-3 months depending on frequency of use and amount applied. Results last 5-7 days after each application of this product. If applied every 2-3 days, one bottle may last 1-2 months.
