Guest's review of Fake Bake Self Tan Cream


“I've tried loads of self tans, and most of the colours...”

Written on: 09/04/2009

Good Points
HARDLY ANY after smell (AMAZING!!!)
Good coverage with no streaks
Good colour - nice tanned look, not yellow

Bad Points
Still has a TINY BIT of after smell - so not 100% odour free
Colour guide is toooo dark... It's scary for first time users like me
Application was alot longer than the tans i'd used. (Probably 'cuz it was thick and the colour was scary)
Clings to pores (like the ones some people get from shaving)

General Comments
I've tried loads of self tans, and most of the colours have been fine... So i didn't really wanna try Fake Bake for colour reasons... It was more to find a long lasting, SMELL FREE tan!


Was really thick and very dark. The thinner you spread it, the lighter your tan. I put a medium amount, and blended it in really well until all the streaky bits had disappeared. It came with gloves which were bearable to use. (Don't use it without gloves!)

Make sure u put moisturiser on dry areas first.

I looked like a Ribena Berry when I'd finished applying it, so not for outdoor wear until rinsed off...

When any area of your body creases, you get crease marks, but dont worry they didnt affect my end result.

Took 30 mins to dry enough before bed time!

I wore old jammies and slept in a buttoned up duvet case, so's not to ruin my sheets :0D


Woke up in the morning and had it looked well dried, but still dark. I got in the tub and washed off all the colour guide.. I had to exfoliate a bit to get rid of it all!

(It does seem to cling to any pores so be aware.. its not too bad though)

After I was dry, I was left with a nice light golden tan. Don't expect it to be REALLY dark... It was more like a tan you'd get if you went away for a week... Subtle, but with good coverage.

If you wanna put another layer on the next day you can cuz it doesnt smell... YAY.


Good colour and great result for reducing aftersmell... But tricky application.. Give yourself an hour or so at first!
