Before I begin, I am 21 years old and extremely fair. As a child, I was decidedlyginger/strawberry blonde, so my skin WILL NOT tan - not then, not now. Ive tried a lot ofsunless tanners throughout my middle school/high school/collegiate struggle to be tan (or at leasta normal, non-ghost shade). This ranges from LOreals Sublime Bronze lotions/sprays, to ModelCo. products, to Xen Tan, and lots of other brands.As of now, this Fake Bake Flawless is my favorite self-tan product Ive ever used. Id argue that,when used properly, this is the best sunless tanner. The color guard in combination with the mittmakes sure I get every single square inch of my body, no streaks. It dried in minutes, and I wasable to dress quickly. The liquid develops into a wonderful brown (not orange!) color, and it waseven and believable. HOWEVER... it must be used properly :)There are a few reviews on here that have complaints about this product that Im going to addresshere (mostly noting why theyre silly complaints). The first major complaint is "bottle leakage" -the spray bottle that comes with the product is too long for the bottle. The natural solution I cameup with was cutting down the straw to make it short enough to fit in the bottle and prevent leaks.CUT THE STRAW before you use and your Fake Bake wont leak! The second major complaintis about the application mitt. Some people say it leaves fuzzy stuff on them, some people say itshould have velour on both sides, and some people think it wont last until the tanning product
runs out. All of these are wrong. If youve shaved and dont press too hard, your mitt should NOTbe leaving fuzzes on you. Youre supposed to lightly buff the product on. If the mitt had velouron both sides, there would be risk for rubbing extra tanning solution in random places, mostnotably on your body where it can leave a streak. One of my biggest tips in using this product isWASH the mitt of all leftover tanning solution after each use. This will keep it in MUCH bettershape.To get the brown, amazing results that most reviewers gush about for this product... its not hard.Here are some steps to follow.Step 1: Shave and exfoliate with a Baiden mitten. If you dont know what it is, promptly gopurchase it and use it and be amazed.Step 2: Take some scissors and snip off a bit more than an inch of the spray bottle attachmentthat came with the product, and put the modified attachment onto the bottle. This WILL preventall leaking.Step 3: Apply sunless solution as per the directions, using the gloves and the mitt, spraying onthe mitt and then LIGHTLY buffing the color all over (its probably best to put a tiny dab ofbody lotion on your knees and elbows and ankles).Step 4: This is my personal step that really helps me as an extremely pale person get a beautiful,even, brown tan. Everyone hates the tell-tale splotching on hands/feet that give away the fact thatyoure wearing a store bought tan. I highly recommend that every pale someone purchase aproduct called Xen Tan Blending Balm. Once youre done applying the tanner all over, includinghands and feet, take your blending balm and go over your elbows, knees, ankles, knuckles, sidesof feet/hands, and wrists. This will prevent the tan from developing into too-dark territory.OVERALL... The Fake Bake Flawless system is fantastic. Its well-priced and delivers beautifulresults (even for gingers), and beats the inconvenience associated with going to the spray tanplace. When the correct measures are taken, it looks great for a long time. If youre looking for adeep, dark tropical tan, youll need to apply it a few nights in a row. My advice is BUY THISNOW. And then order some Xen Tan Blending Balm and a Baiden mitten (both veryimportant!).UPDATE: September 27, 2012After finishing a whole bottle of Fake Bake, Im happy to report that the velour mitten is still intact. Im adding this edit to emphasize how important it is to wash your mitten between uses.Washing the mitten also prevents leftover solution from becoming reactivated and leaving darkersplotches in random places during application. Seriously yall, WASH YOUR MITTEN.196 of 203 people found the following review helpful.After YEARS of searching Ive finally found the PERFECT self-tanner!By SarahI used to use tanning beds to achieve my tan until one day I noticed a weird spot on my back andfound out it was basal cell carcinoma. So now tanning beds are out and sunscreen is a must, but Imissed having my glow. I began just trying any and every self-tanner that I could get my handson, but I wasnt completely satisfied with anything until I tried Fake Bake Flawless. It really haseverything you hope for in a self-tanner. It really truly smells the best of anything Ive ever used(my boyfriend approves). The gloves and the mitt ensure that you wont get stained hands or
streaks from application. The formula dries so quickly and you dont have to waste time waitingfor it dry. It has a tint to show where youve applied it. The color is very flattering and naturallooking, I think I almost gave my dermatologist a heart attack when I went in for a check up! Hewas like, "so hows the tanning going" and I just smiled and said, "oh, this is fake", so it evenfooled a dermatologist! I also love the way this one fades off very evenly to, which has been aproblem with others that I have tried. I havent ever written one of these reviews for a productuntil now but Im just so happy with this and I know how frustrating the hunt for the perfecttanner can be so I hope this helps someone else and saves them a lot of time and money spent!39 of 44 people found the following review helpful.(Former) Pale PrincessBy AdrienneKampmanUPDATE: I have gotten my Mom to get this, who is even more pale than I am and she LOVES itand swears by it. She gets a very natural color as well.***Let me just start off by saying that I am Polish, Finnish, and Irish. We are a pale, stout peoplemeant to live in cold, dark places. Thusly, no matter what I do I cannot get a tan; I burn, or turn asort of odd orangish color. Its really quite terrible. I digress.I decided to test drive this product this summer, before I go to Hawaii in the winter, to givemyself time to find a good fake tan. I have found it!!!!I started by using it on my legs only, just in case it went badly. I followed directions andexfoliated quite well, shaved etc. I just used a rough washcloth and rubbed the heck out of mylegs, knees and feet until I was smooth and clean. After making sure my skin was completelydry, I rubbed a small dab on Vitamin E Oil on my knee area and rubbed it in well, just to makesure they werent too dry. Then, I applied the product. I followed the directions of going lightlyover knees and ankles, making sure they were extended so it wasnt wrinkley, etc. The rest of it ispretty much self explanatory. The mitt worked well for me and was a nice touch. Also, Im prettysure this bottle will last me a LONG time. At least a few months of solid use, but perhaps evenmore!Pros:1. It smells nice in the bottle. Sort of floral/tropical.2. It has NO fake tan smell on your skin. I was expecting it and was ok with it if I tanned well,but I am both tan and NOT SMELLY!3. The color guide really does help you see where it went, and also looks passable as a tan untilyour tan develops.4. It dries quickly after you apply it so you dont have to stand around nekkid forever.5. My tan looks nice. I went to bed, woke up and rinsed off my legs in the shower and that was it.So easy!Cons:1. The spray part of my bottle was a little drippy so I had to keep wiping up little drips from myfloor.
Really, that was it!So anyways, I wholeheartedly recommend this product. I will be buying more soon to stock up!See all 461 customer reviews...My Associates Store | Shopping Cart Browse by CategoryHome toolsHome & Garden Similar ItemsFake Bake Skin Smoothie, Special...$10.78Exfoliator Microdermabrasion Too...$48.97Fake Bake Air Brush Instant Tan ...$17.48 AccessoriesXen Tan Deluxe Mitt, 1 Ounce$7.00Paula Dorf Sweep Away Clean Up S...$12.00Hair Therapy Wrap Cordless Therm...$29.05
