    Comments about bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

    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!

    This is one of the better tanners. Easy to apply. You do need to apply every few days to keep your color. I use this along with the Jergens Mousse tanner.

          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 after reading all the reviews and using it in the past like 7-10 years ago. I applied it two nights in a row, and it looked great in the morning... Until I showered. They should market this as a "wash off" self tanner bc the only color thAt was left was the blotching on my knees elbows and ankles. Very disappointed hope I can return it!

                  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 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.

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!!!

                          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!
