      Love this self-tanner. Skin becomes a nice bronze without the bad effects of being in the sun or tanning bed. No streaks, stains, or nasty smell.

        Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

        I've used this product before, and love it. I just wished the first application was darker, but once you do a second application you can achieve your perfect color. I'm very white with freckles... I tend to stay out of the sun but always use sunless tanners (just because I can't naturally tan), and this is one of my go-to's!

          I've been using this for at least 10 years now. I'm very pale and tan slightly Every other product leaves me orange. This one does not. I've even.turned several friends on to this who have different skin tones and it works for everyone. Use sparingly With the gloves enclosed in a circular motions on moisturized skin and you will have the most natural glow. i love the emediate tan results and the long lasting effect. I wouldn't use this on your face. There is a specific product for that. The negative is it can come off slightly on white clothing but will not stain and washes out.

              Comments about Fake Bake Sunless Self-Tanning Lotion:

              I have some years of experience using self tanners, getting spray tanned, and naturally tanning by sun or tanning booth. This self tanner is pretty good but not as amazing as it's been hyped up to be. The texture is pretty light weight and dries pretty quick. I apply this at night after I shower and exfoliate. This product smells pretty bad but the next day the smell is gone whether you shower in the morning or not. The tanner is def streak free and has the color guard which allows you to know where your applying the lotion. Being that there is the color guard in the lotion, when you shower the next morning after applying it at night the color guard is rinsed off in the shower and your real color is left. That is not ur tan coming off in the shower it's the color guard. But I like how dark the color guard makes me so I leave it the next morning. The color is def more brown with a natural red undertone which makes it look like a normal sun tan. However, I'm very pale ( typical red hair, freckles with pale skin) and when this tanner is on my face, chest, and arms it looks more brown. But on the inside of my arms, legs, where I'm even paler, the color looks kind of yellow. The tan last like 5 days max before I need to reapply. The color is not as dark as I thought it would be after one application but that's good bc it allows for more control by building up the color. Overall, def better than most products and I would buy it again but it just wasn't as good as it was hyped up to be.

                    I have tried a lot of drug store brands and they do not work so I found this ! This product dries very quickly , is fool proof as in you cannot get streaks or smudges, has no orange at all which was a big plus , smell is mild compared to other tanners but still fairly noticeable before rinsed off in the morning , and fades away very evenly . The only draw back is that it lasts for a good 3-4 days before fading when it's claim is 7 , but I would still highly recommend it !! Best Iv used as a pro and will try their other products ! Btw use at night and leave on for 6 hours for best results
