Fake Bake Suntan Review!!

Guess what? Summer is right around the corner, and that means getting a nice tan, right?! Unfortunately, as much as we all love that tanned look, we also know that too much sun is harmful-thus we use sunscreen. However, I recently discovered a way that you can get a nice "tan" without ever having to be out in the sun, or use a tanning booth!
Fake Bake sent me a bottle of their Flawless Self Tanning Liquid for review. This is the first time I've ever used something like this, so after reading the instructions, I was pleased to see that it sounded very easy. The self-tanner comes with a spray nozzle, applicator mitt, and protective gloves. 

It's recommended to apply at bedtime, so the tanning liquid has a long time to soak in before showering. So, one evening I sat down and tried my hand at self tanning! It was very simple to slide the glove and then applicator mitt on, and then spray the mitt with tanner. I did a pretty light application for the first time. I was totally amazed at how fast and easy it was to use! The best part is that it looks like a real tan, not that fake orangey color. Here's a before and after picture so you can see for yourself:

After...nice, huh?!
After showering the next morning, I lost a little bit of the darkness, but it left a nice, subtle tan. I like it this way, but you can also apply a couple day sin a row for a darker tan...whatever your preference. Fake Bake is perfect for whatever your skin shade!

"Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid combines ease of application with intense professional colour development. Flawless is applied with a professional mitt (INCLUDED) in effortless gliding strokes for a perfectly even tan. The dual function cosmetic bronzer assists in making the application even easier (shows-where-it-goes) providing an instant golden tan. The fast drying, fast absorbing formula is transfer resistant, so can be worn throughout the day. Formulated with Fake Bake's exclusive triple tan formula (DHA boosted by DMI & Erythulose) for an intense tan that lasts longer. Suitable for all skin tones and skin types. Pleasantly fragranced with a tropical scent."
