Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Self-Tan Lotion

fb bb

I might be a little bit of a self tan addict. I have tried so many brands, I just love the look of a healthy golden glow. One of my favorite brands has always been Fake Bake they make great self tanners that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Fake Bake has just released their new Beyond Bronze collection and I had the chance to review the self-tan lotion.

The formula comes out looking a bit like chocolate syrup which makes it easy to get good coverage without leaving bare spots or getting streaks. I found the Beyond Bronze Self Tan Lotion was really easy to blend and I had enough time to work it in before it started to dry. The best part is how easy it is. Just shower to remove all body lotions or oils and it always helps to exfoliate. Then grab your gloves and apply. Once I have applied the self-tan lotion I let it air dry for a bit then hop in bed. While I get my ZZZ’s the self tanner goes to work. Then with my morning shower I can rinse off any extra color guide and when I step out my skin has a beautiful and healthy golden glow. (Check out the swatch below to see the great glow with just one use.)

My skin is very pale and I find I get a great tan every time with this product. Always a true tan color and never orange. I can’t believe this is under $10 at Target, I will be stocking up! A great way to have a beautiful tan without the damage of laying out in the sun or a tanning bed. Remember to always use SPF, seld-tanners make your skin look great but do not include sun protection.

Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Self-Tan Lotion $9.99
Beyond bronze self-tan lotion contains only the finest naturally derived, premium tanning agents dha and erythulose for a longer lasting, natural looking tan. The easy glide formula and ‘show where it goes’ cosmetic guide colour enables you to apply your self-tan with ease and confidence. If you desire a darker tan, beyond bronze self-tan lotion can be reapplied over consecutive days, however one application is usually enough.

Use small amounts and rub in a circular motion. Lightly glaze over the hands and feet, bent elbows and knees. Allow to dry before going to bed. A small amount of the colour guide may rinse off when showering in the morning but the tan will remain. Apply consecutive nights for darker results. Then apply once a week to maintain.

Available for purchase at www.Target.com.

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.
