Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner
the best i've used!
I've tried many many sunless tanners and this is the ONLY one that works for me! It smells great, goes on very easy and lasts a few days before I need to reapply. Yesterday I received compliments from some ladies. They complemented me on my tan and I couldn't help but share that it was from a bottle! Told them to check out Bare Minerals website to find it. I always exfoliate first, use a good moisturizer, put on latex gloves and apply the tanner. It dries quickly and smells so much better than the others I've used. You won't go wrong with this tanner!!
Don't use the brush with this one!
I had been using the original Faux Tan self-tanner for over two years and was obsessed. It was the only self-tanner that never streaked on my very fair skin when I used the brush to apply it. Well, I decided to try this new version due to the price point and paraben-free formula. I used the brush to apply it and had a very difficult time spreading it on my skin. The bronzer in it would ball up in small sticky clumps no matter how I brushed it on. After I took a shower the next morning, I had a weird uneven tone all over my arms and stomach, not really streaks but just subtle lighter and darker spots. I was so upset!!! It just looked weird - like someone had thrown dirt on me or something. Thought I had wasted my money until I applied it the next day on my back using a hand towel tied to a large spatula with a hairband (my make-shift back applicator). It went on so smoothly!!!! I used the same thing to apply it all over and it looked just as perfect as the original. I just wish I would have known before buying a brand new brush with it!
Thankful for this product!
I am a very fair skinned young woman and I am careful as to how I treat my skin. I am certainly not laying out in the sun anymore, due to skin cancer at the age of 16 b/c of the sun and tanning beds. I have used the Faux Tan in the past, and have now bought the new and improved Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner. I am very pleased with the results. Tip: Kroger brand vinyl disposable gloves will flawlessly apply the tanner on without any streaks or discoloration (trust me)! You will really benefit by using (only) these gloves, because I've tried another type, and these are wonderful. So HAPPY and so proud of my gorgeous tan! I have had guys look at me in a great way, while at the pool the other day =). I love this healthy version of an awesome tan!
Not Buying It
I purchased the Faux tanner last summer after reading the reviews saying that it did not have the typical bad odor of other tanners. I have been so happy with this tanner. No smell, no streaks, no orange color. I'm so disappointed that you change it and based on the reviews it now smells like all the other tanners. I will not purchase another bottle based on these reviews. When you have a good product, you shouldn't change it.
I'm not sure why so many people are giving the new formula a bad rap. Its sooo much better than the first one minus the parabens! The smell is not great but the color is natural. I think people need to remember to exfoliate first, but don't believe the negative reviews its great! Natural looking! By far the best self tanner I've ever used and i've tried over 20. Price went up $4 a bottle, boo to that.
MISS THE ORIGINAL
WHY DID THEY HAVE TO REINVENT THE WHEEL- THE ORIGINAL WAS GREAT! IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO FIND THE PERFECT TANNING PRODUCT THAT WAS NATURAL LOOKING & AFFORDABLE. IT WAS A "MUST HAVE" PRODUCT IN MY BOOK OF BEAUTY SECRETS. VERY DISAPPOINTING- PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL......
great self tanner
I have used a lot of self tanners over the years and none of them seemed to work. They would be streaky or blotchy or turn orange. This one doesn't, It looks perfectly natural. It is a nice light brown and looks like you have been out it the sun. Be sure to exfoliate before applying and you will have a very natural looking tan. I love all BE but this is one of my faves for summer.
Not as good as original, but better then most.
After finding out the new formula was paraben free I was very excited to try it but nervous that it would be different. While the new one is still a good sunless tanner, it is NOT as good as the original. I've found that it comes out a bit streaky and not as uniform or easy to apply as the original. I've been using the original formula for years and after trying this new product, I was very disappointed but will continue to use it until I find a better product.
Original product was 5 stars and sunless tanning perfection in a bottle. Hoping bareescentuals continues to improve this new formula.
JUST AS GREAT!!!
I just bought and tried this today, however, I was skeptical because of reading the reviews. I loved the original, so I figured give it a shot! I am very fair, and after a rough winter, I need some life back into my skin color. It is hard for me to get that nice summer glow without actually getting it from the damaging sun. All the other products I have tried leave me orange and streaky. FAUX TAN BODY SUNLESS TANNER is just as wonderful as the first one that I fell in love with last spring! I love the smell, the color, it works amazing! Thank you so much for an incredible product, this is by far the best sunless tanner out there! If you liked the previous version, you will be just as happy with this new one!!!!
Miss the old formula
I have to agree with the others that this does not give the same dark bronze tan color like the old formula. It does spread easily and doesn't have a strong odor but I when I shower the next morning I'm left with no color.
