Review: Fake Bake ‘Xtreme Self Tanning Gel

It may officially be Fall but that doesn’t mean I am ready to go back to pasty white. I am naturally very pale and love good self tanners that can leave me with a nice glow that brightens my complexion. One of my favorites right now is Fake Bake Xtreme.

The gel formula is really easy to apply, it has a really dark tint its easy to make sure you get a nice even tan. I just hop in the shower, exfoliate then thoroughly dry my skin and I’m ready to apply. The enclosed latex gloves make it easy to apply without stained hands. 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.

My Review: Fake Bake Xtreme Self- Tanning Gel

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.

Fake Bake Gelee Daily Wash

I am really loving the new Fake Bake Gelee wash, its definitely different than all my other body washes. The vegetable based wash doesn’t suds like a normal wash but you really don’t need much to wash your whole body. I love the light coconut scent and it leaves my skin so soft and smooth.

With Spring Break around the corner I have start using the Fake Bake Gelee wash with my Fake Bake Sunless and Skinny, wonder how much I have to use to look like Gisele by summer? Maybe I can sleep in a vat of it?

Fake Bake Gelee Daily Wash

Fake Bake has gone green with an all natural gelee for the face and body. A perfect body wash to aid in extending your tan. The formulation is concentrated with Vegetable Glycerin and a mild Sugar Coconut-based cleansing agent that is combined with a botanical blend of Green Tea, Cucumber, Ginseng and Chamomile. Unmask the potential of your skin with this safe and gentle concentration of superior ingredients to balance, purify, clarify, strengthen, and moisturize the natural way. You will see and feel a difference in your skin!

Hydrated skin is healthy skin! The cleansing properties of this incredible gel are far superior when compared to regular soap. Other soaps can dry out your skin, leaving it tight and flaky that can cause your beautiful tan to fade faster. It may not lather like other soaps but it thoroughly cleanses your skin while allowing it to maintain the natural oils and keep your skin’s surface (the acid mantle) at a healthy pH level. This Gelee is infused with anti-oxidants that help neutralize the free radicals that can damage skin cells. Vitamins A C and E are added to help create a foundation of healthy skin along iwth a concentrated legel of natural Vegetable Glycerin that acts as a humectant to retain and attract moisture. Peppermint Essential Oil stimulates and energizes the skin, giving it a radiant, healthy glow and the natural coloring comes from the beneficial Chlorophyll which is derived from plants.

Sunless & Skinny!

I received a sample of Fake Bake Sunless and Skinny and I’m not going to lie I was a little worried when I first applied it. The lotion is a chocolate brown color which is awesome for even application but I was worried how dark the color would end up as I am pretty fair. But my worry was for nothing the color developed to a  beautiful bronze. nI like that Sunless and Skinny is a build able color so you can get a beautiful sunless tan shade that is perfect for you not too dark  or too light.

On top of being a great self tanner it helps tone and firm your skin. I have just been using it for a week so I am not at the full effects of the product but I can say the skin on my legs looks and feels much better. I am not sure if its supposed to be a benefit but I don’t seem to need to shave my legs as often they are staying smooth an extra day MAJOR selling point for me. A great product for a healthy, beautiful tan.
