“As someone who never tans - just burns (due to my fair...”

Written on: 25/05/2007 by Sally2007 (12 reviews written)

As someone who never tans - just burns (due to my fair skin, I have used a lot of various fake tans over the years (having resorted to the highest SPF factor I can find).

I was browsing the internet one day and came across a site for Fake Bake. It sounded worth a try, so I went to my trusty hair and beauty site (www.salonlines.co.uk) and they had it, as always at a great price and with next day delivery. (Please see my previous posts on Salonlines - They have every hair and beauty product you… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2007 by Tara24 (1 review written)

Fake Bake Self Tan Cream, on the whole, is a good tanning lotion, but it didn't really work for me. I was happy with the results the first time I used it, but then after using it a couple more times, I noticed that eczema had developed on the fronts of my arm. I could also see small slightly rough patches of skin forming in sporadic places; mainly on my arms and back, but I carried on using it thinking that they would go. However, the more I used it, the worse they got, until they were bigger… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2007 by kim possible (5 reviews written)

I have been using Fake Bake self tan cream for about 3 months now. I only use a fake tan on special occasions, and I have therefore only used it twice so far, but both times I have found it very easy to use. The smell is OK; bearable at any rate, and the results have always been fantastic. I get a very natural looking tan after using it, and I always receive positive comments, especially from people who haven't seen me for a while, who always ask where I have been on holiday.

I have been using Fake Bake for a month and a 1/2. I love it!! I use it 2 times a week, and I am so dark, it looks like I have tanned in Florida or Hawaii. I love it because it looks so natural. I have told all my friends and family about Fake Bake.
I use the lotion. It's the first one I bought, and I loved it so much, that's the only one I tried. Why try something else if the lotion works? My mom and my friends have bought it and we all love it. My friend was so pale, if it worked for her it… Read Full Review

With applying Fake Bake Self Tan Cream twice a week does, the colour stay nice and even? I find that my Fake Bake tan only lasts about a week before it starts flaking off and going patchy.

Written on: 18/08/2006 by Kelly S (1 review written)

Used this 3 times now - love it would recommend it to anyone. Very pasty and don't tan too well in sun. I tried Booths and st Tropez in salon all rubbish and streaky.
Put it on looked like I'd been mud wrestling then went to bed. Woke up rinsed off in shower with water and looked lubbly! golden goddess for sure! OK not quite but nice and sunkissed which for me was a shock. Used twice over next 4 days and after a week colour has only just started to fade. Next time will use 2 days in a row to… Read Full Review

Very good result with more natural ingredients. Gives a good natural looking brown colour but I gave up on it after a while because it was just too messy for regular use. Fine for occasional applications for big events but make sure to tie it in with wash day!… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2006 by lauxy1979 (1 review written)

It is easy to see where you have applied Fake Bake. You do still end up a bit streaky, but I have yet to see a fake tan that does not do this. Fake Bake gives a nice overall colour.

It does not age well, and if you don't keep applying it you end up with uneven patches of brown dry skin that seems to resist exfoliating. You also look like a coal miner for the hours during post application while you are waiting for it to work.

It's great if you have an occasion to be brown for, like a wedding… Read Full Review

Fake Bake is the best tanning product I have used at home, although application is sometimes tricky, and you do tend to look a bit like a chimney sweep before washing it off the next morning. It is good value for money, and I would definitely recommend it… Read Full Review

To all those people out there complaining about Fake Bake rubbing off or running in the rain, can I please point out you are supposed to wash the colour guide off thoroughly. If you don't that's you not the product to blame........

I found that if you put it on at night and put an old sheet on your bed and dark jammies it is worth it after your shower ( to remove guide colur).<br/><br/>It shouldnt streak or rub off in rain unless your still wearing guide colur or put too much on, i would be very concern if this happened to me outside and i have been using it for 5 years.

Written on: 10/06/2006 by CANDYCANE (1 review written)

I apply Fake Bake early in the evening and sleep with it on, then I rinse it off in the morning and apply another coat, as I think the first application acts more like a primer on the skin.

After showering late in the evening it reveals an intense bronze colour to my skin, which looks great! I moisturise every day and I find the tan lasts for about 5 days on me.

It is an absolute foolproof self-tan, and no one would know it was from a bottle… Read Full Review

I have always liked a tan, and I used a sunbed for 15 years and then I became pregnant, so it was not a good idea to use them. Then I came across Fake Bake. It has natural ingredients and it is safe to use. The colour was very natural, but it was a bit messy to use. I have not looked backed, and I have never used a sunbed since thanks to Fake Bake. I recommend it to anyone… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/04/2006 by julieanna (1 review written)

I am very pleased with Fake Bake. This product is the best self tan I have used so far, and I have used a few.

The colour is very convincing. It advised to leave it on overnight, but I found an hour was enough. When you apply it, it is best to start at the bottom of your legs and work up, just brushing over your knees lightly. Do not apply it to your feet just yet. Work up your body making sure to rub in circular movements. When applied all over, apply lightly to the feet and backs of hands… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/09/2005 by Weeko (1 review written)

Fake Bake Self Tan Cream does go on dark, so do not apply before company arrives. Play with the lotion until you get to know the product and how it goes on. I like to use this product outside while sitting in the sun, it helps dry the lotion. I like to apply this as the foundation for my make-up. Once you get the hang of how it applies to the your skin, then you can apply before going out on the town… Read Full Review

I absolutely LOVE love loved Fake Bake Self Tanning Cream. I had never heard of it until I was browsing the net for a better tanning solution.
I ordered some, and it arrived the next day. I took the afternoon off work to try it, and I was so excited about the colour, and the way it looked after application. My pale and pasty complexion has been transformed to a dark beach goddess look!!
I have already told all my friends about it… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2005 by joolie212003 (1 review written)

I would reccomend Fake bake to anyone. It gives a lovely all over tan, provided you follow the instructions carefully. When it fades off, it fades off gradually so your skin won't tend to appear patchy which frankly, can look quite horrific! All in all you will love the results. Theres nothing like gorgeously glowing skin to make you feel healthy, confident and well...absolutely gorgeous!… Read Full Review

Fake Bake Self Tan Cream - I have used many different tanning products and can honesty say that Fake Bake is the best. I really liked the natural colour although the cream is not the best product to use on the face as it can get into the pores, so instead I use the mousse which is brilliant for the legs also. The colour can last up to a week, but I find I have to reapply after a couple of days as I shower a lot… Read Full Review

Instead of using the cream or mousse, you should use fake bake the face. Its made for the face only and creates a natural sun-kissed look and is light so doesn't block pores. gail

I have tried many, many tanning products from the expensive ones to the cheap ones before I tried Fake Bake Self Tan Cream. Half of them turned out orange on my skin and the ones that didn't turn orange streaked all over my body. I was a little hesitant at first to try Fake and Bake and I read many reviews before I purchased the product. When I received my package I showered that night and exfoliated my skin and then applied to self tanner. I was scared at first to see the colour of the… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/06/2005 by pinkdoodlebetty (2 reviews written)

There's a reason why Fake Bake Self Tan Cream gets so much hype - it really is one of the best fake tans on the market. It doesn't dry out your skin, best of all is that it has a colour pigment so you can see exactly where you've applied it and any spots you may have missed. Most people are put off by the muddy colour you're left with after application, but after a shower in the morning it washes off and you're left with a nice even tan. I would advise using this with the fake bake scrub and… Read Full Review
