Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner

Item #: 2257838 Size: 6.0 oz

Ask a Question
Better than the real thing, this customer favorite sunless tanner by bareMinerals instantly delivers an all-over bronze glow that develops into a golden, natural-looking tan that lasts 5-7 days. Look like you've spent a day at the beach without exposure to the sun's harmful rays. A mineral copper complex prolongs the tanning effects, while aloe vera and vegetable-derived emollients provide hydration so skin feels soft and smooth. Want to look like you've basked in the sun longer? Build a deeper tan by reapplying.

Formulated without parabens and artificial oils.
For best results, exfoliate before application. Smooth evenly all over body. You see the amber color as you're applying it, so you know exactly where it goes, or if you've missed a spot. To avoid discoloring palms, wash hands with soap and water immediately after use. Allow application to dry for several minutes before dressing.

      Comments about BareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner:

      I love BareMinerals, and this product gives a nice even tan. but, the tan only lasts about 3 or 4 days. I am super pale and this product does not make me orange or splotchy - which I LOVE! I just wish I would last a little longer, I hate having to scrub this product off my hands after applying it.

        I love this self tanner. It doesnt smell like self tanner, I use it regularly after I get out the shower, I put on body lotion first then apply the self tanner it dries quickly and for the most part is pretty even, like all self tanners you have to watch areas like ankles, wrists etc. No complaints here. Looks natural no orange!

            I really like this self tanner, works better if you put on lotion first. I put on body lotion after shower then apply self tanner. Gives great color, doesn't smell like self tanner I apply everyday until I get the color I want them every couple-few days to keep up color.

              I am looking for a lotion that will give me a great tan and I've seen many good things about this product. My only concern is, I work out every day and I am afraid the color will run. Would this be an issue?

              Thanks for your help!

                A:

                Please allow at least 4 hours for your color to fully develop prior to bathing or sweating/exercising. After color has fully developed, there is no need for concern.

              Doesn't exfoliating while showering affect the tan that you want too make darker?

              • Staff Expert

                A:

                For best results, we recommend exfoliating prior to application. This will ensure that the product applies smoothly and evenly so that you don't see any streaks or blotchiness as the color develops. We hope this extra info helps!

                A:

                If you typically shower once a day we recommend applying just after showering, allow to dry and then don't shower until the next day when you would normally do so. 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

              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.

                A:

                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:
