Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner
Perfect Self Tanner
My natural skin tone is Fairly Medium, although in the dead of winter I think I'm leaning closer to Fair. That being said, I have cool undertones and always burn before tanning. This product gives me a golden, natural looking tan color without looking fake or orange. I love that there is a version for the face separate from the product for the body that provides good color from your forehead, to your neck, to your chest, to your body. So many presenters, even during a self tanner presentation, seem to have ended their self tanner at their jawline and then tried (unsuccessfully# to match their makeup to the self tanner on their neck. They have these weird white looking faces and tan bodies on HD TV. This product gives you all the beauty effects of a tan #looking slimmer and younger/evening skin tone# without the harmful tanning bed rays. I exfoliate and moisturize drier areas #around my nose) prior to application and apply after my shower before bed in order to let the color develope overnight. I have not had any problems with this product staining my pillowcases or sheets. In the morning I wash my face, moisturize and put on my moisturizer and makeup. I learned last year that my Original foundation shade will change from cool Fairly Medium to a warm color like Light or Golden Medium.
Love It !
After trying several other self-tanning products for the face, with poor results, I was about to give up. I noticed this one, while shopping for other items, thought I'd try 1 more time...SO glad I did ! I have sallow coloring & dark under-eye circles, which has gotten worse with age (I'm 58). I found it impossible to achieve the color I desired and not wash off. Faux Tan Face did the trick for me. The fact that the lotion is tinted makes it easy to see where it's applied, it dries immediately, does not wash off & provides a gradual, natural-looking tan. The 1st time I used it, it caused a slight staining of my palm, so, now, I squeeze some onto the plastic top to hold it while applying . Light scent, great color & terrific price...I am delighted ! As an added plus, helps conceal under-eye circles!
Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner
This is a great gradual tanner; it gives the right amount of color without being too overpowering. I would recommend using just the fingertips to apply it, as it is sometimes difficult to get it all off the palms. If you are looking for something to give you a natural color, without being exposed to harmful UV rays, this is the product for you!
Tip: Place the tanner on the parts of your face that the sun will usually hit (apples of cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin). My first instinct in applying it was to do so just like a regular moisturizer... wrong! I ended up putting it everywhere, including places like the side of my nose, and it didn't look completely natural (the side of my nose looked like it had dirt on it). When I reapplied (after a few days), I put it on the parts that would get sun normally, and it looked great!
Tip: Make sure to put it along the chin line/neck as well so as to not make it look unnatural... don't forget to put a very bit on your eyes, too! (but not too much)
I use this in conjunction with the Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner, and it gives me a great sunless tan all year long!
Love this product...but
I also have the Bare Minerals anti wrinkle and moisturizer. I am confused as to what order i put these on. First the tan? Or first the wrinkle repair? Moisturizer?
Love the product
I have not used sunless tanner for at least 20 years and decided to try the Faux Tan Face and also the Faux Tan Body. I am very happy with the results. No streaking and the color is a beautiful brown. It smells like vanilla and dries in a few minutes. Just LOVE it.
Great for the face!
I like to self tan but I never would apply to my face since I am very acne prone. I decided to try this because of the rave reviews and Bareminerals is a brand I can trust on my skin. I love it! I use it every morning before my primer and it works great on my oily skin. Feels lightweight and no self tanner smell.
I am a long time BE customer and this is the most horrible product ever. very messy after hours of being applied to my face. very DISAPPOINTING. I wouldn't even give to a friend to try.
Even with freckles this product looks natural!
I was also afraid with using bronzers and tanners because of the freckles i have on my cheeks. Usually bronzers that tan your face just make your face look dirty because the sun isn't there to naturally bring out your freckles more. This product works! It doesn't bring out my freckles obviously but it doesn't make my face look dirty or orange! It looks like a natural tan and I am very pale and yet it still does the job! love this product! I put it on twice a week at night! Don't put it on in the morning before you wear something light in color, comes off on clothes! Recommend putting it on at night always!
Finally my face has color!
My face is always pale, even if I tan from the sun the rest of my body will tan while my face stays white. While picking up the usual foundation, the counter lady suggested trying this, and I am glad I bought it! No breakouts from it even with my super sensitive skin. Looks very natural even on my pale skin. I like to apply it at night, then wake up in the morning and wash the tint off. Does not rub off on white pillows!
