        Wow! Great tanner! Great all over color, but you will need to use a huge brush to apply it not a mit!! Follow instructions on box!! First use I used a mit & it was a nightmare , but after using brush it was beautiful! Doesn't make u orange! It pretty brown, buildsble tan! I had to apply 2 coats & then re-apply daily! When tanner came off it was not noticeable no spots or patches! Just washed off after 7-9 days! Used it twice on day 1! Day 2, then day 3 slipped! Every other day after that! Only applied on the face every other use! This tanner will give you a natural beautiful glow! Make sure to exfoliate first & use lotion few days before! Use lotion after u apply on skin day 2! U want to let skin moisture!

          I have been reading so many reviews of self tanners and looking all over youtube for peoples reccomendations on the best self tanners. I AM SO GLAD I BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT. It gives an instant, great, natural looking tan. I apply this with the Ulta tanning mitt which I would suggest over using just your hand.

          I didnt get any weird streaky parts around my writsts or anything. Which I was worried about in a self tanner. I cannot rave enough about how much I love this product. I will probably be purchasing the face one.

          I did notice that if you dab on some product and don't rub it in right away it will "stain" your skin, but that will go away the next day or after your first shower so it's not a big deal.

          Some people say it smells bad but I find that after I apply it I can't smell anything, some self tanners you smell like you just went to the tanning bed and this product doesn't leave any bad smell.

          I will definitely continue to purchase this and I can't wait to see the dark tan I can build with this product!

              I use it every other day or every 3 days. Holds color nice, and natural, not orange. But must use gloves to apply or it's real tough to get it off your hands.

              Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

              I have tried a lot of other tanning products, including those raved about (St. Tropez among others) and they either didn't work or had a bad smell or fake looking tan. St. Tropez was easy to apply but lasted only a day on me. I was very relieved when I found this tanner! Very easy to apply, I have color almost instantly, and it doesn't fade as quickly as others I've tried. Although, it does fade after maybe 2-3 days (depending on showers, sometimes I take 2/day). Great scent, easy to apply, doesn't fade in patches, doesn't cling to rough patches as other tanners do. Gives a natural looking tan. I applied it maybe 2-3 times a week, and I cannot believe it has lasted me almost 4 months! I know it's a little on the expensive side, but you definitely get your moneys worth! I would've rated it a 5 if it weren't for the lasting power. But I'm good with it. This is my second purchase of this product. Please don't d/c this product!!

                Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

                I previously only used Jergens self tanning lotion, and decided to try another brand because I did not like the smell of Jergens on my body after applying.

                The Bare Minerals brand does have a nice almond smell when you apply it, but after it dries completely it leaves the same smell as Jergens - must be the universal chemical(s) used.

                Even though I wash my hands immediately after applying, it is difficult to fully remove from my palms, and I need to use a loofah to fully remove the stain.

                I wait about 20 minutes before getting dressed after applying the Bare Minerals tanner, however it still has stained my white clothing.

                I'll finish up the bottle, but I'm switching back to Jergens.

                      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:

                      Allow several hours for your color to fully develop after application before showering or swimming. Once color has fully developed, your tan will be waterproof.

                      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.

                      A:

                      This product should be applied after you shower. 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.

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.

                      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!
