Better than the real thing, this customer favorite sunless tanner 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.

Size: 177 mL / 6 Fl. Oz.

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.

Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner 3.4 5 28 28
Always Ends Up Down The Drain Maybe I need some personal assistance on applying this product. I have tried over the years to get it right, and it's never happened. No matter how much or how little I use, or whether I use the brush or my hands, or have my husband put it on, I have to wait, not minutes, but at least an hour before putting on clothes. And still it rubs off on my underwear and other clothing. The next morning when I shower, I watch most of it go down the drain, that's after 24 hrs. of applying the product. In fact, the color around my shower drain is now a light brown, and it doesn't come off, wish it worked that well on my body. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I HAVE READ all instructions about exfoliating, etc. Rhonda Caywood Park City, UT 11/18/2014
Now the rest of my body matches my "Driver's Arm" I'm a very fair skinned girl - I wear Fair in Winter and Fairly Light most of the rest of the time.....this is the ABSOLUTE BEST self tanner I've used - and I've used many many many varieties. My left arm is a lovely golden glow thanks to driving between Chicago and Wisconsin - but the rest of me was still sadly pale. When I'd seen my best friend and complimented her tan she told me she was using Faux Tan and that pushed me over the ledge of indecision I'd been on for literally YEARS. #I've been honestly considering buying Faux Tan since it first came out# I am so thankful I jumped - it smells GREAT, and not at all like any other self tanner I've tried. The color is fabulous, and I love that you can add to it if you want a darker tone. It does NOT come off on my WHITE sheets which is a huge bonus. Yes, if i shower a few hours after applying, some of the superficial color from the gel comes off in the shower, but the actual tan is still there and continues to darken. I picked up a tanning mitt at Ulta after reading countless reviews and I'm thankful i did - it truly helped with achieving an even tone and keeping my hands stain-free. Cannot wait for the jumbo to be back on HSN, I'm definitely picking up the Jumbo after using for a couple weeks and falling madly, completely in love with this product. 07/07/2014
great tanner but delivery needs work like many others, i have used this sunless body tanner for many years until i realized the formula contained parabens. thank you to bare minerals for being proactive to remove the parabens. only problem w/the new version is the delivery, i.e. pump. the new design is such that i have to hold the bottle on its side to dispense the product on the brush because the brush does not fit under the spout. the previous pump was designed to deliver more product & the brush fits under the pump. i save the pump from the previous bottle & am using that one now in place of the new pump...works much better....for this reason i'm giving the new formulation 3 rather than 5 stars. 06/28/2014
Good, but definitely not as good as the original I absolutely loved Bare Essentuals Faux Tan from the first time I tried it-- the color wasn't orange, it was easy to apply and didn't streak on me (I didn't use the brush, I applied with my hands using gloves), and the color was instant and lasted. Fast forward to a year later and I go to buy a new bottle and it's changed-- "OK, new product packaging, no biggie". Wrong. BIGGIE. Not only did they change the pump so you need to pump 8-10 times to get an adequate amount that you used to get in 1 of the original, but the color is paler and doesn't stain your skin as well. It's great for *maintaining* a sunless tan once you have it down, but for starting fresh? Majorly disappointed. I'm now scouring the internet trying to find bottles of the original because I really don't want to have to start looking for another sunless tanning product again. PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL FORMULA!!! 06/12/2014
No time for the sun I am always on the go, I can't just lay around and build some color on my skin and I refuse to do indoor tanning. Because of this, I am the lightest shade in all the bare minerals foundations. I might as well glow in the dark. I am just 15minutes from the beach, pale stands out. I have tried a few other sunless tanner lotions and they either turned me orange or they gave me an allergic reaction. This lotion is PERFECT!!! No rash, and no orange! 05/21/2014
this is the best sunless tanner i have ever used. my skin is very fair, i burn very easily. infact, i have never established a natural tan on my legs in my life! i decided to try Faux Tan Body about a week ago and the results are amazing! the deep tint allowed me to see where it was applied. i had intended to do only my legs, but after seeing the results i applied it all over. Its a natural glow, not "orange" and even in notorious areas like elbows and knees, color appears even and natural. thanks bare escentuals! i'm in love. 05/16/2014
Don't waste your money! Do yourself a favor and buy self tanner at your local drug store instead. It's very obvious a few hours later if you miss a spot. Also, when you're applying it your hands get really orange! It also gives your skin a little bit of a shimmery look (so unnatural!). This stuff is absolutely horrible! Do not use it! 05/01/2014
Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner I bought this sunless tanner because I was frustrated at my lack of color now that Fall is starting up. I was a little nervous, because of the mixed reviews, but I love it! The amber color was a little scary, but it does really help to see where you apply it. It has given me a great color. I especially love how I can apply it to freshly shaved legs and there was no irritation! (I always get bumps on my legs when I apply lotions/creams too soon). This was a big seller for me. Once you apply and get the color you want, it lasts about a week before you need to apply again. Tip: Exfoliate your skin before applying! Using a loofa will do the trick, but it helps prep your skin to be able to absorb all the beautiful color, and will make your tan last longer. Tip: Use latex/rubber gloves to apply it for a more even color! I use latex/rubber gloves when applying it because when I first started using it (and I rubbed it in with my bare hands) my palms would absorb a lot of the product, not only staining them, but I had to use more in order to get it on the rest of my body. It also took a little bit of scrubbing to get it all off my palms. Now, when I use the latex gloves, it spreads more evenly, doesn't discolor my palms, and allows me to use more of the product. I use this in conjunction with the Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner. 10/16/2013
NEVER AGAIN !!!!! I wish I had found the reviews listed below before I purchased my trusted product three day before my wedding. I have very fair skin and after many years of trying every product out there I found this one. I have used it for years! Last year my guy bought me four bottles and that is what I have been using. I bought my LAST bottle to use before my wedding so I would have a beautiful tan while in my strapless gown. Only to watch my tan wash off and go down the drain two hours before my wedding! Can’t reapply because it will rub off on my gown… So I got to be all white and blotchy for my wedding… Perfect! NEVER AGAIN 10/14/2013
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!! 06/12/2013

A: 
It doesn't. The pump gives you MUCH LESS product with each press and the color is more faint and doesn't last as long. I've been rationing what's left of my old tanner for when I need the color and then using this new one for maintaining to keep the color even or use on places it wears off faster (especially my hands, since, you know, washing).
If you can get a smaller/travel size to use first and make your own judgement, that would be best before spending the money on a full bottle and being disappointed

A: 
YES, YES, YES! I was skeptical too... after reading the negative reviews. I wanted to see for myself, and it does work just as good. I am very fair, and I love the results of the new one and feel that it is just as wonderful as the "old" faux tan- which I fell in love with last spring/summer. Also, the smell is still better than any of the competitors out there.

It doesn't not contain sunblock. So once the faux tanner is dry I would apply sunblock over it.

I saw that BE has both a face and body Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner lotion, but I don't want to buy both of them. Can I just use the body lotion for my face as well? Is there a difference between the two at all in ingredients or anything? They both seemed to have the same descriptions, just different size bottles.

I'm in the same boat. I think the face one goes on a bit more sheer so you don't end up looking like you dunked your face in a vat of chocolate. What I've been doing and has worked really well is adding a bit of the regular tanner to my face moisturizer-- good color results, even application/no streaks, and I still get the benefits of a moisturizer without buying a 2nd product

A: 
I am not sure if you can use the Body tanner on your face; I have both the Body and the Face tanners. The only difference I can tell is that the Body tanner gives a darker color than the Face tanner (since the Face one is a gradual tanner). If you do use it on your face, I would recommend using only a little bit and then waiting to see how dark it is before applying more.

I just got this product, and what I usually do is after I have put it on my legs, arms, ect... I use whatever is left over on my hands and gently rub it over my face. It seems to just give it a little color enough for a glow. I really love this product. I haven't tried the face lotion, but I might, just to see what difference it makes. I definitely recommend this line of sunless tanner!

A: 
Yes it has a slight smell, but you won't find any tanners that won't have that smell. It's really not bad, plus you can use lotion that smells nice over it to hide the smell. Also, to avoid any streaking, and to avoid the discoloration on your palms, use Kroger brand vinyl disposable gloves! They are perfect. Do not get any other gloves, I've tried these and they are just what you need. When you are finished, swipe the top of your hands with the excess tanner from your gloves to give your hands a natural tanned look. You can then put the other glove back on your other hand to swipe your other hand. And it's perfect now!

You will LOVE this , I personally like their original version better but this brand is the one and only for me! You wont streak because the color is like a greenish/brown (distinctive) and disappears as you spread so you wont miss.. Read my review.
