I’m a self tan junkie, with fair skin I try to avoid tanning but still want a golden glow. I have tried lotions, sprays, mousse and gel products. My latest favorite is Fake Bake Xtreme! I was torn on what to try and a sales rep at Ulta told me this was a must have and she was right.
The gel formula is really easy to apply and it looks a bit like chocolate syrup going on so it’s easy to make sure you get a nice even tan. Make sure to exfoliate first you will get a much better and longer lasting tan. And I have found latex gloves are a must have no stained hands and its easier to apply the self tan gel. I like to apply at night before bed then rinse off the color guide in the morning. If I apply Thursday night I have a perfect tan through the weekend.
Definitely on the top of my sunless tanner must have lists, it applies easily dries fast and sets to a rich golden brown with no hints of orange.
