Beyond Bronze by Fake Bake

I’m beginning to think that self-tanners are as personal as foundation when it comes to the colors and if it works for my tone. I can’t think of any one product that has worked for just about everyone except the Proactiv line but I digress.

So how did this one from FAKE BAKE do? Read more after the pic to find out!

Do you think you tan more in the warm months or cooler months? I have to google this because I can think of reasons to do it during both times of the year. Since I don’t sit in the sun and once-in-a-while decide I want some color on my legs and arms, I’m all about the fake color and FAKE BAKE is my latest try. This Beyond Bronze by Fake Bake Airbrush Self-Tanner took me a few to get a good application. Not one for reading directions (I for sure inherited this from my father), I used it a few times before looking up more info about the application and saw what I was holding it too close. The mist should be held 12” to 14” from the skin and I think I might not have been moving quickly enough along the skin.

It uses a “show where it goes” formula giving skin an instant bronzy color, which  developed into a nice tint on my NC30 skin tone but it just didn’t last like this one did. Would I recommend this to you? Probably not. There were just too many details to pay attention to and when you’ve used one that doesn’t have many details, it spoils you. $17.95/7.1oz @ ulta.com.

Like yours in a lotion or mousse? Also available from this Beyond Bronze collection is Self-Tan Lotion ($16/5oz) and Self-Tanning Mousse ($14.95/7.1oz).
