bareMinerals Deluxe Faux Tan 16 oz. w/Brush
I have always been a sun worshiper but now that I'm 58 I have noticed sun spot damage and I am canceling my tanning package because this product delivers. I actually showed my best friends this . (I think they were jealous of my very realistic tan). It doesn't streak as long as you buff it in. DON'T HESITATE !
NOT Better Than Real...
I don't understand all the fanfare and rave reviews, because this product is NO where near as awesome as shown in the presentation/demonstration. First of all, there is a smell. Although, it only shows up after the 2 hour development period. It's the same smell as all self tanners have. The brush makes it no easier for applying, but it does offer the benefit of keeping the tanner off your hands. The tan is smooth on easy to apply areas (arms, legs, ect.), but the difficult part of application comes when you try to use that brush on elbows, ankles, knuckles, knees, ect. My feet look awful right now, as does my ankles, knees and elbows!! I can do much better with a glove. Also, there is no control on coverage. I'm fair, and I think with one application I am too dark. The color is the same as all self tanners...I see no difference in that. Also, until you take a bath the brown "pudding" color will rub off, so beware where you sit or lie down.
I spent $60.00 and change on this bottle of tanner, and considering my experience with the product I can't justify the buy.
Love The Product, The Brush....not so much.
I have tried many self tanners and, but for one, hated them all. Too orange, smelled awful, had to wait too long to get dressed, etc. This one is very nice! The color is beautiful and it doesn't smell bad at all. I do not care for the brush so I use a mitt and its much easier to put on. The color only lasts a couple if days but I put it on a few times a week and maintain a lovely, natural shade this way. Thanks BE!!
I DON'T GO WITHOUT MY FAUX!!
I have used this product faithfully every summer for years. It looks so natural that no one knows it's a self tanner unless I let them in on my little secret! It even makes my pasty-white legs look great in dresses and capris! Wouldn't do summer without it!
This product is amazing. I have tried Jergens and other self tanners but ultimately decided to go to the tanning bed because I wanted to be tan so badly. I am happy to say that I will never join the tanning bed again and expose myself to melanoma! I will buy this product as long as they make it. It truly is the best. It lasts me almost a week and it is so easy to put on. Sure, it does show streaks if you aren't careful, but the brush helps a lot.
Debated a long time on trying this and finally gave in. I am so glad I did! The color is extremely forgiving and it would be hard to mess this up. The color looks great and the fade was not noticeable at all at the end of the first week. I expected the "tanning bed" smell but it doesn't have it at all. The brush is worth every penny of this deal. I will order this again!
Fabulous Product Yay!
For the last two years I've used a clear faux tanner. I ordered this for when I ran out of the first brand. I had a bath with body soap in it and my faux tan literally washed down the drain.
A friend saw me and was as sorry as I was. Happily, bareMinerals Deluxe Faux Tan had arrived. The scent is delightful, the brush helps smooth out areas where application is too much and it dries really fast. I love this product, thanks to QVC for carrying it and I will always order it. Like all bareMineral products it takes very little amounts to use.
Best tan salvation in a bottle! Yay!
Not a good buy
I have used this product before and it worked well. This order was not good. Forget the brush, it just caused streaks no matter how I stroked and swirled. With my previous order I used a pant liner turned back on itself, and used plastic gloves. It worked much better than the brush. I don't know what caused this order to not work, but it made my arms and legs look dirty, and I could not work out the streaks. I couldn't wait to get it scrubbed off; it looked a little better, but not much.
Not so great..
I have yet to find a self tanner that doesn't streak and rub off. This is no exception. If you want to shower and exfoliate daily and have somebody help you, you might have a good tan. It falls into the wrinkles on my arms and looks awful. Two hours after sitting in my robe it still rubbed off.I gave it 3 stars because none of them work that great. I'm still waiting for the one that does!
The one that works the best is Tarte. It lasts the longest and doesn't streak as bad as this product. I saw the same show as another customer where the host had streaks. I should have known better. I kept it to long to return or it would have gone back.
I love bareMinerals as a whole, but this product disappointed me. It would not stay on my skin from one shower to the next. I could only see the color a few hours after I applied it but once I took another shower it was gone.
My sister and I applied it to each other tonight. Which made it a lot easier! It's ways hard to get my back, but she did a good job. I'm excited to show off my tan. And I look like I lost 10 pounds over night!
This stuff is awful! There is no way to put it on even! Do not waste your money!
