Facing Fake Tan

Sometimes fake tan can be scary. Even the most experienced fake tanners can make a mistake here and there. So when it comes to tanning your face, a lot of people just simply opt out and don’t bother at all. In my opinion, if you’re already beautifully bronzing up your body then why shouldn’t you treat your face as well?

There are a lot of fake tans out there designed solely with your face in mind.  Ensure you use a facial fake tan, not one intended for your body as your face has different needs in order to achieve a natural even glow.

Fake Bake Face Self-Tan

One of the best facial fake tans out there is Fake Bake’s Face Platinum. This product is not just a fake tan, but also an anti-aging lotion. It combines Fake Bake’s signature triple tanning agents with the latest anti-ageing ingredient – PhytoCellTecTM Malus Domestica, created from stem cells extracted from the rare Swiss apple Uttwiler Spätlauber.  This is the kind of 2 for 1 combination we can’t say no to as your skin is left with a beautiful golden glow, added vitality and a more youthful complexion.

I adore this product. It develops over a few hours so I applied it before I went to sleep and rinsed it off with water the following morning to discover a gorgeous bronzed look. It is the most natural looking facial tan that I have tried – it doesn’t sit in your pores, so it isn’t obvious that you have been fake tanning.

For those of you, like me, who like a very dark tan you will need to apply the Fake Bake facial tan a couple of nights in a row to get your desired look but you won’t be hearing any complaints from me as the option to build up this facial tan is exactly what I was looking for as it allows you to tailor the depth of your tan.  This is a facial tan that caters for everyone!

I have quite oily skin.  This can make me a little nervous about tanning my face.  However, once this product is applied it is absorbed quickly, without any oily residue or shine.  This matt finish is an added bonus and it means you could consider applying this product in the morning and allow it to sit underneath your make up, or even use it as your base if you don’t mind having to wait a few hours for it to develop. It doesn’t dry out your skin either.  Instead, the anti-aging ingredients have a moisturising effect which ensures your skin is left soft and balanced.

Fake Bake Face Polish

Fake Bake also have an excellent Bamboo Buffering Face Polish. This gently, but effectively exfoliates your face, removing impurities and dead skin cells. This ensures a more even application. All you need to do is apply to wet skin, gently rub in, and rinse away. Trust me when I say it’s worth it. The sunflower seed oil and avocado fruit oil moisturises your skin, leaving it soft and fresh, creating the perfect base for your tan application.

I think everyone should give these great products a try. Don’t be afraid of facial fake tanning anymore, Fake Bake have made it very easy for you!

Review: Fake Bake – Luxurious Golden Bronze – 60 Minutes Self Tan Liquid & Professional Mitt

Fake Bake

With so many products on the market these days, it’s becoming more and more difficult for one to stand out. This tan however, is completely unique and heads and shoulders above most products out there.

“Why?” I hear you ask. It’s all in the name…’60 Minutes Self Tan Liquid’.

I am one of the biggest lovers of fake tan going but, as anyone who has ever regularly used fake tan will know, it takes dedication – especially when you have to sleep in the stuff once a week.

We do it because we love the result.  Looking like bronzed gods/goddesses never gets old! But, imagine a world where you can sleep comfortably every single night of the week, and still rock a gorgeous tan…

Sleep with Fake Tan on

 

…Fake Bake have now made this possible. Once applied, this tan can be washed off after just 1 hour.  1 HOUR!

The guidelines state that 1 hour will leave you with a golden tan, 2 hours result in a bronze tan, and 3 hours develop into a dark tan. Naturally, loving a darker hue, I left this product on for 3 hours before showering.  The results were amazing. It was dark and noticeable, whilst still managing to look extremely natural, and there wasn’t a streak or patch in sight. I would have been extremely impressed if I had had the same result after 8 – 12 hours, but to have this result after just 3 hours… it’s quite simply astounding.

However, it’s not just the final result that is amazing, the product in its entirety is brilliant. From the smell to the consistency, I could not find a single fault.  It has a lovely tropical scent – an unexpected surprise. I know you only have to have this tan on for 3 hours maximum but I would have happily accepted having this pleasing smell around me for longer.  The consistency is easy to control and blend.  It is absorbed straight into the skin, making sure you’re not left with a sticky residue.  It is also free of Parabens ensuring almost everyone can use this product to achieve a beautiful, natural looking tan. 

Fake Bake Velvety Pink MittFakebake also include a cute, pink, velvety self tanning mitt. These new velvety mitts are absolutely brilliant. Not only do they feel fantastic, they almost always ensure the smoothest application (assuming you’ve done your basic tanning preparation of shaving, exfoliating and moisturising dry areas)!

They are spoiling us, right!? Well, prepare yourself reader… they have also thrown in a pair of application gloves to ensure you don’t end up with those dreaded orange hands!

Final verdict: a fantastic, ground breaking product.
