I am very pale naturally, therefore I have tried many fake tans ranging from drugstore to high end and I have tried the best and worst.
First up, drugstore Loreal Sublime Bronze, both the mist and the gel. I use to use these when I was a little more broke in high school and I always turned out orange….and kind of sparkly. The gel definitely has a sparkle to it and it is not flattering…I looked like a bad stripper.
——Recommended? Definitely not ——-
Another dug store tan that I have tried, and actually like, is Jergens Natural Glow. This is one that you do daily, or whenever you want, and it gives a tinted color that you can build. That means it is suppose to look very natural and it really does! I use this one for just a little bit of a glow to my skin, not a dark tan, but I think thats what I like best.
—–Recommended? Yes, Love!—–
One of the first non-drugstore fake tans I tried was Fake Bake. They have many different products in their fake tan line but this one is my favorite. It goes on with a tint which makes it easier and faster to apply. After leaving it on for a few hours it does look incredibly dark but once you rinse off it goes to a nice naturally dark tan. Plus, no streaks!!
This is a fake tan you use in a shower, a shower! That concept was so strange to me when I first tried this. I thought there was no way this could work….but it does….really great too!! It is so much easier than any other fake tan because there isn’t that wait time, and you don’t have to get back in the shower to rinse it off!! It really gave me a great glow! Not really good for a deep tan but if your looking for that natural glow then this is perfect.
I tried this one once I started working at a tanning salon where I was the palest person there. This one has a green undertone so it gives that yellow tan rather than a red tan which I love! Since it is a mist it goes on so easily and evenly and develops within 30 min normally. I think out of all the fake tans I have tried I like this one the most, it looks perfect every time and has a wonderful smell.
Let me know your favorite fake tans!!
