    Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

    I have used many self tanning products over the years and this is one of my favorites! Here are the main points:

    - Looks very natural. I am very pale in the winter and this product gave me a nice golden glow and was not orangey at all. However, if you are darker naturally you might not see much difference with the first application.
    - Easy to apply. Goes on smoothly and mess free with the included gloves. I also buffed in the product with a mitt (not included) to ensure it would be streak-free.
    - For those who hate the self-tanner smell, this one is minimal and it's gone by the next day. This should not be a big problem if you apply it before bed.
    - The only thing that disappointed me a bit was the length of time it lasted. The box states that it will last 5 days, but it was pretty much faded by day 3. However, I did not take away any stars because 3 days is pretty standard for most self-tanners and this product is otherwise superior to other products I've tried.
    - For anyone who exercises and/or lives in a hot climate it is also pertinent to note that I happily did not experience this product sweating off and staining clothing. That is a huge plus for me!

    The bottom line is that Fake Bake is a great product that I will be re-purchasing and recommending to my friends.

    About Me Brand Buyer

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Absorbs Quickly
    • Long Lasting
    • Moisturizes Well
    • Not Greasy
    • Softens Skin

    Cons

    • Bad Smell
    • Doesn't Absorb Well

    Best Uses

    • Bedtime

    Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

    Once you get the hang of applying this self-tanner, it is the BEST ever. It is long lasting and provides even color.

    Tips:
    - Use gloves when applying this product so that you don't end up with orange hands.
    - Apply right before bed. It will absorb as you sleep and you can easily rinse it off in the morning.
    - Exfoliate at least 8 hours before applying.
    - Moisturize your skin at least once a day after applying to make the color last longer and fade evenly.

    madly in love with this!

    By Celeste

    from New Orleans

    Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

    This is my absolute favorite self tanner! I consider myself somewhat of an expert in this area and this is my go-to for those pale months. The color guard is shockingly dark but when I take the time to blend it properly I have a deep tan that lasts until I wash it off. The remaining color is a natural golden tan which after about 3 applications will turn you into a sun kissed goddess! I will say that I am quite pale during winter with yellow undertones that often bring out the orange in most self tanners. This product is great because it has a more green/brown tint that keeps the orange away!

    Pros

    • Creates Even Tan

    Cons

    • Feels Greasy or Heavy

    Best Uses

    • Body
    • Quick-Fix

    Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

    I have used the spray and the lotion. I like the lotion better because you have more control when applying it (keeping the bathroom from getting a tan mist) A couple of coats will get you dark and it lasts for days and days if you take care of it- moisturize and don't exfoliate. The smell can be heavy if you leave it on a long time and it feels a little greasy at first. That being said I would highly recommend the product.

    The only thing was the smell of the latex glove after… smelt like a giant glove all night lol. But once you rinse off in morning.. it was gone.
    I didn't rinse off one evening and had longer results. Love it for fast fix.

      I love this product. I am unable to get in the sun without suncreen, therefore I am very fair. This product has been the best so far that I have used. The price is a little high, but worth it.

      Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

      This product leaves a golden tan and does not look fake at all. I is applied with gloves, at night and then your shower In the morning rinses off the extra. I am careful not to put it in my armpits, because like most tanners it has somewhat of an odor. The color also looks great on your face and dries quickly after application. Love it!
