    Best faux tan product for body that I have ever used. It works quickly, looks natural and best of all, it doesn't come off on clothing or on bed sheets!!! It fades evenly through showering so you never look splotchy!

    Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

    I love the color you get with this product, it gives a natural tan color, not orange like some tanners. It is very easy to apply and dries very quick. The only thing I do not like is that it fades after you take a shower. I wish it would last longer. I have to re-apply every couple days.

      Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

      I am very pleased with this Tanner! The scent is mild and once it dries the smell mostly disappears. I have very fair skin and the color came out very natural and bronze in color. It didn't give me a deep dark tan, but I don't want that! I used a mitt to apply and it came out completely even and streak free. It's a little thick in consistency which makes it a little harder to apply. I did 2 coats in order to make the color deeper and it came out beautifully! it provides a light tan with 1 coat, more of a medium tan with 2 coats. It lasted about 6 days and then slowly faded out evenly.. No blotchy patches!

        My aunt introduced me to this product and now I'm hooked. It's inexpensive, looks great and very easy to apply. It last for about 3 days. You can use it multiple times for a darker color, it does not streak. I use medical gloves when applying to avoid any staining on my hands. I suggest rubbing it in very well especially on your knees, elbows and around your feet. give yourself about 20 minutes to dry before you get dressed. I've gotten Tons of complements. I have nothing negative to say about this product .

              I was a little hesitant to try this because I've tried several self tanners and haven't loved any of them. I love this one! I absolutely love the scent of it. It doesn't have that weird smell that most self tanners have. It has a nice thick consistency that spreads nicely. The color is perfect for me ( I'm fair ) and it seems to apply evenly if you are careful. Will buy again!

                    I don't understand the last couple negative reviews. I have probably tried every sunless tanner out there and this is by far the best. Gives a beautiful brownish glow to the skin. I use the mitt and find it leaves no streaks or blotches of color. After learning I can no longer tan in a bed or outdoors, I couldn't live without this product!

                    I apply this with a little cheaper less thick tanner such as Nutrogena or comparable store brand for an easier, smother application. The product is thick so quickly adheres to the skin. By mixing it with a "thinner" or applying them together at the same time, it is much easier to apply evenly. I love this product. A little goes a long way. Well worth the price.

                      I had high hopes for this as I am a safe tanning advocate now. I was hoping all the positive reviews were right-on, but found I could not agree. And even though I am an exfoliator, I felt it gave my skin an uneven and ruddy appearance. I've gone back to my trusted standy-by, which is Jergens Natural Glow. I simply mix it half and half with the Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion every other day to keep just enough natural glow.

                        I bought this product, along with the face product, around this time last year. I cannot find an expiration date and still have a lot left. How long is the shelf life of this product? I would love to use it now, but don't want it to end up causing discoloration. Thank you.

                          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.

                          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.
