Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner
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!
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.
I wasn't aware that this tanner would hardly show a tan at all. I might as well just use a normal body lotion because it basically has the same effect, except without the strong smell. I also have the face one and my face hardly gets any colour off it and I have to work super quick or ill get dots of tan on my face from it setting too soon. The size of the bottle is also ridiculously small so its not like it would last awhile, when I want to tan I want to tan everywhere because I want an even tan for the summer but yeah this stuff would hardly last me any time and what's the point when the result isn't even noticeable?
Miss the old product....
I have LOVED all BM products for years, and have not been disappointed until last week when I purchased a new bottle of the new Faux Tan. It still gave me the great color but did leave a few streaks and spots and the smell is now awful it's just like every other self-tanner on the market. Highly disappointed with the new smell; I'm glad that you have made it paraben free but please find a way to get rid of the stinky smell!!
I am so upset that they changed the formula of this!!!!! Yes, its great that there are no longer parabens in it but the new product is totally different form the old faux tan, which was my favourite self tanner of all time!! It was beyond perfect and looked SO perfect right from when you first applied it, it gave a beautiful dark golden color and developed into an even better tan. The texture of the new stuff is so bad. It doesnt go on with good brown coverage like the old one, it goes on green and feels really thick on my skin, and doesnt really have any initial color other than a green tint. Ugh! And the end result is nowhere near as good as the old one!! I am literally so sad the old one is gone i have searched every corner of the internet to find old bottles i can buy but no luck especially in canada. I would pay any amount of money for a bottle of the old formula i dont know what i am going to do without it!!!!!!!!!
