    Good for a lotion

    I really like this tanning lotion. It gives a good colour and doesn't smell as bad as a lot of other tanning lotions. I'm a big fan of this Fake Bake line in general as I think it's the best I've tried and it really worth the price. At $32 it will last a long time (I'm still on my first bottle!) and will even ship free from eBeauty (yes, I am a sucker for free shipping from Canadian beauty website...read mores). Definitely try this product if you're looking for a quality self-tanner that's super versatile and really easy to use. — 2 years, 5 months ago

    Review subject

    I have tried several self tanners. High end and drugstores. This tanner does give a nice brown color. I am not too keen on the color guide makes- even though it helps you know where to apply evenly. I don't really like how it takes long to dry and gets over everything. I don't think it smelled that great (the polisher does :)). — 2 years, 9 months ago

    The Absolute Best!

    This is absolutely the best self tanner on the market. I have tried Mystic Tan and although it looks good to begin with it comes off very splochy. I've also used about everything the department and drugstores sell. This tanner gives a wonderful brown color, not orange, and the color guide makes it very easy to apply. Yes the color guide will come off on your sheets,however it washes out easily...o...read morer you can put it on and in 4 hrs use a dry washcloth to wipe off the color guide. The Fake Bake lotion is easier to apply than either the mousse, gel or spray (although they're good too). It lasts about 7-10 days and wears off very evenly, just like a real "sun" tan that fades. — 4 years, 9 months ago

    Don't be afraid!

    The first time I used this I was freaking out! It comes out of the bottle the color of Hershey's Syrup and looks really streaky. DON'T PANIC! The color you see is a guide color. It is there so you can see where you put the product and avoid mistakes. Yes, it will rub off on your clothes and sheets, but it does wash out. Here's some tips: 1) make sure you exfoliate first. The Fake Bake body polishe...read morer is great and smells like creamcicles. 2) put a little lotion or Vaseline on your dry spots, ankles, feet, elbows, around wrists. The color tends to grab really fast in these spots. 3)I usually take a shower, shave my legs and exfoliate either before bed, or early in the day when I plan on using this. I put dark sheets on my bed, and wear a special nightgown I use for tanning. This give it plenty of time to dry, and I don't worrk about the guide color getting all over. 4) When you shower in the morning after you apply, the guide color washes away leaving you with a beautiful golden tan with no orange!! — 4 years, 10 months ago

    not worth it

    This lotion comes out really dark and brown which I initialy liked but your supposed to shower it off and when you do 80 percent comes off leaving just a light tan, its also very streaky takes forever to dry and stains your sheets and anything else it comes into contact with, It's also kinda expensive for just the light tan it leaves benind — 5 years, 7 months ago
