      Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

      I have been buying this product for years and use it all year long so my legs look nice and tan, even though I spend way to much time at the office. My secrets for a awesome finish are to apply afer shower & after applying moisurizer to my legs for the most even look. That way it doesn't sink into my (dry) knees. You have to apply quickly, but it smooths out really well. Also great for evening out my multitude of freckles. Wash hands immediatly after applying so nails don't get tan too!

        I bought this product with the hopes of a "natural looking" tan and was not dissapointed! Began using it one week prior to a wedding and had superb results! Used after evening showers, allowed to dry(which was quickly) and went to bed. No residue on my sheets or clothes.

        It is a keeper!

              Faux Tan Body (and Faux Tan Face) are easy to apply and dry quickly with a very natural look and feel. I apply with an application mitt for smooth coverage and evenness 2-3 times/week for a continuous looking tan. I've had several compliments about how nice my skin looks. :-)

              I love this tanner so much! I have tried every name brand tanner out there and this one is definitely the best!You can easily see where it is applied so you will not miss any spots and it leaves the most perfect bronze color! Not orange-y at all! I love it! The only thing I dont like is if you use this on your face its oily but I bought the gradual face tanner and it works much better for the face! Dont waste your money on other tanners this one is worth every penny!

              Was very excited at first when I bought this product. I don't know if it's my skin or the product? Was even at first, reapplied daily, but seemed the more I applied the splotchier it became. Ultimately I looked like I had dirty feet and brown patches on my legs. Was hoping since it was Bare Minerals I would get better results. Applied easily with no harsh smell....but color wasn't even at all

                        A:

                        For best results, we recommend exfoliating prior to application. This will ensure that the product applies smoothly and evenly so that you don't see any streaks or blotchiness as the color develops. We hope this extra info helps!

                        A:

                        If you typically shower once a day we recommend applying just after showering, allow to dry and then don't shower until the next day when you would normally do so. For best results, exfoliate skin with a body scrub or loofah while in the shower. After allowing skin to dry, apply Faux Tan evenly all over the body. To avoid discoloring palms, wash hands with soap and water immediately after use. Allow application to dry for several minutes before dressing

                        Though this formula can be used on the face, 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:

                        We recommend applying body lotion to especially dry spots (knees, elbows, hands and feet) prior to application to prevent uneven color in those areas.

                        After applying Faux Tan and allowing it to dry for a few minutes, you can also apply body lotion over it if desired.

                      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!

                      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.
