I received the bareMinerals faux tanners this week and you cannot believe how quickly I tore into them. I blame my upcoming beach trip but I also think I was just plain excited to see what one of my favorite brands could do with the cranky products of self-tanner land.
First and foremost, these are easy to use. Their subtlety makes it hard to screw them up. With one major exception: with bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner, just trust me, wear rubber or latex gloves. This has always been a favorite trick of mine. I shocking forgot my own beloved trick the other night and had to scrub like the devil to get the pigment out of my palms, even right after application.
With that being said, the golden tan looks super natural with a bronze glow. A mineral copper complex prolongs the color – mine is still going strong after three days. But like I said, with one application, the color is subtle. So be prepared to layer if you want a deeper shade.
I’ve fallen especially hard for Faux Tan Face Gradual Glow Sunless Tanner. bareMinerals has developed a unique tanning peptide that offers an even, golden and subtle tan. I’m always fearful of self-tanning my face, but this formula’s buildable nature is a breeze. Plant-derived emollients lock in moisture without clogging pores.
For those who want an easy, quality and natural looking tan, don’t hesitate snapping up this duo. Just a note for those with a sensitive nose: you definitely can smell this formula. It isn’t offensive and is more than offset by the elegant formula, but just FYI.
