bareMinerals Deluxe Faux Tan 16 oz. w/Brush
I have used An Abundance of self tanners over the years and this is by far the best! Although I don't use the applicator brush often. I'm usually in a hurry and apply with rubber gloves. I would buy it by the gallon if it was available as I love to have a little color to my skin year round. I own and operate a salon and I recommend it constantly!
Brush falls apart. Bristles everywhere.
Loved tanning stuff but the bristles in the brush fall out leaving them all over.
I have fair skin and have tried fake tan before but they always look wrong. Hoorah for faux tan. Easy to apply, smells pleasant, great natural color. Can't ask for more than that. Huge size, Enough left for next summer too!!!
Fav Self Tanner!
I have used many brands and this one is at the top of my list
Faux Tanning done right
I am fair and freckly and red/strawberry blodn haired. Most faux tans make me look like an oompa loompa. This really is different. Yes, it is a bit pricey when put up against drugstore brands, but you really do get what you pay for. Easy to apply, smells lovely, lasts for days. I honestly use this on my face as well...half a pump + some Neutrogena self-tanner for face on the brush and I work it in from hairline to chest. My naturally ghostly pallor is traded in for skin that looks like I spent a day outside. I like that I just look healthier. You could really go to town and slather this on & look like George Hamilton (I am dating myself here), or you can temper it with some of your favorite body lotion. Either way, the stuff works and lasts and the brush is divine. Obviously very well-made. So soft, very easy to clean, and it maintained its integrity. No errant little bristles falling off. I'm happy.
Best Faux Tanner ever made
I was always a sun bather - but for health reasons, I can no longer tan. This is by far the most natural looking tanner I have ever used - and I have tried a LOT of them. My suggestion is to skip using the brush however, as it tends to make the tan look streaky. I use disposable gloves to apply the tanner more evenly - it gives a nice lifelike build-able color. I use it year round, and unlike most other tanners, it has a not unpleasant almond smell as well - I would highly recommend this product!!
Only One That Really Works
I have had this product for months. I rarely write reviews, but this is the best ever!!!!!! It goes on sooooo easily and absolutely no mess. The applicator brush is awesome. I've tried so many tanners which have gone in the garbage, but this one really works!!!!!!!
Best one out there!
Okay, I'm Irish. There. I don't think I need to say anything else. But really this product is my new favorite. I've tried Tan Towels and they stink! They smell yeasty. Plus there was no color, so it was a blind application. This has a subtle bronze that is not only beautiful, it helps you buff this to perfection. Because I am fair, I have to use a very realistic color. Any hint of orange will turn neon on me. This is great. I love the brush. It is so well made. It doesn't absorb too much of the product so it doesn't waste any. That's another reason why this works so well for me.
A few years ago I had to have a skin cancer removed. I was a faithful sunworshipper, and tanning bed user. Since then I have used this product and it does everything that it says it will. The color is excellent and looks great. It stays on for a long period of time as long as you follow the instructions. Along with the Faux Tan moisturizer, which keeps my skin smooth, this is a wonderful product.
Like the product but...
I really like this self-tanner because it does look very natural. However, it does rub off onto your clothes, seats, etc. I pulled a pair of white pants out of the closet the other day and the whole backside was discolored and I realized it was from my self-tanner. Luckily the color came out when I washed them. I've since cleaned my chair at work, car seat, and chairs at home all of them had the self-tanner on the seats. I now have a towel that I sit on at work, in the car, etc. to protect them.
I absolutely love this product!! I have been getting spray tans for years now, and after finding this I will never go get another one! Spray tans alone cost $35+ for 1 tan, this bottle is huge and lasts for a long time! No streaking, no orange color, no odor! It goes on dark so you can see where you are applying it, but leaves a subtle tan. If you want it darker just add more! After applying everywhere I want tan, I use what is left on the brush to do hands and feet! I promise no orange mess and no streaks!
Disappointed with this self tanner. It is messy to apply and requires an extra step not required by a national brand moisturizer and self tanner combined that I purchase from a local department store. The bareMinerals Deluxe Faux Tanner leaves my skin with a slightly orange tinge. I have tried this product intermittently throughout the years and always with the same undesirable results. Don't think I will purchase it again. It could be my body chemistry. Not sure, I just know that it is too much work and expense for an undesirable result.
