|FakeBake Golden Faux Glo Bronzer $20.99|
I'm in the middle of my second sunless summer. Having spent my whole life enjoying warming my bones and skin in the sun, I could no longer justify spending so much time trying to turn the hands of time back, only to undue it all each summer.
Even this weekend, on the glorious beaches of the Hampton's, I huddled under our umbrella, doused in SPF 30. Who is this person??? I barely recognize me.
Naturally I have a complete arsenal of faux tanners that I employ so I don't look pale and pasty. Back in February, I was sent a sample of FakeBake Golden Faux Glo Shimmer to review.
Golden Faux Glo Shimmer is not a self tanner, but an instant one, that lets you see exactly where you are going to tan. I still use it, (with gloves), anytime I wish to enhance my self tanners.
This is what I said in February:
When I received a request to sample FakeBake's Golden Faux Glow Instant Tan Lotion in a wash-off formula, I leaped at the offer and anticipated it's arrival with excitement.
When the package arrived in the evening, I immediately had to try it despite the directions to use it on clean, exfoliated skin, and to wear the enclosed gloves, while applying in a circular motion.
And I liked what I saw...Me. Tan.
There is a distinct "vanilla" smell that some might find a bit cloying, but did not offend me. My fingertips were stained a woody brown, that did not wash off all that easily...so much for disregarding instructions...but damn, I looked good.
FakeBake is paraben free and uses only natural ingredients. It won't clog pores. The Instant Tan Lotion is designed to wash off, so it is recommended that water or heavy perspiration be avoided for 4-6 hours...no water polo for me, I guess.
FakeBake has a complete line of self-tanners in various formulas as well as exfoliaters. It is more moderately priced than St. Tropez and is available from their website or Ulta, where it also won raves. Celebs love it too.
Would you like to try a tube of FakeBake Golden Faux Glo Shimmer???
