Review of Fake Bake Self-Tanning products
Reviewed by Jamie
My mother has been self-tanning for years, before it was even the thing to do. Can you say trendsetter?!
Now, I'm convinced that it's the way to go. Who wants leathery, wrinkly skin? Count me out. And, count me in as a Fake Bake fan.
I have progressively become a self-proclaimed self-tanning expert and know all the tricks to a perfect sunless tan and have tested almost every product out there.
In order to keep my title of self-tanning expert and hearing women rave about Fake Bake, I had to lather up.
Starting with the Passion Fruit Body Polish, I exfoliated -- one of the most important steps of the self-tanning process. The polish kept my skin smooth and soft.
Then I did a speedy towel-dry and got down to business.
I chose the Fake Bake Self-Tanning Mousse.
But wait! I had no gloves. What's a girl to do?
Ziploc bags over the hands would have to do.
The mousse contains a temporary color which helped cover ME completely.
I have always been curious as to how everyone else gets it on the hard-to-reach areas on their back.
Do they do countless yoga sessions to reach their go-go gadget arms behind their back?
Do their hubbies or significant others get involved in the process?
I still consider myself a new student of contortionist yoga and my man was at work. So I rigged a plastic trash bag to a Swiffer and went to town on my mid back.
I'll give you a second to chuckle...
After applying the mousse, my skin was luxuriously hydrated. And for extra bonus points, the product dried in minutes.
A few hours later I glanced in the mirror to find myself bronzed and beautiful.
The next day I applied the Tan Enhancing Lotion that contains ingredients that minimize fine lines, contains a shimmer, and keeps your skin feeling "like butta."
With other self-tanning products, I've had to re-apply self-tanner many days in a row to achieve the same results that I achieved with Fake Bake.
Fake Bake lasted through my workout sessions, ten-outfits-a-day wardrobe changes, and showers galore. The self-proclaimed self-tanning expert has met her match.
