.My take on Fake Bake
Fake bake is a great way to cheat a tan, this is the first fake bake product I have used as I usually opt for St Tropez but I needed a quick fix there and then and since Boots were offering a ton of points when you spend over £50, of course, I needed to get my shopping basket filled with £50 worth of goodies!!
The best things about this product in my eyes is the speed, it is literally - lid off, spray - voila! I remember once watching Allan Carr on TV and Cheryl Cole was the guest star looking bronzed as ever, well that was enough, being a tanorexic and feeling extremely pale in comparison I needed a tan, so before my boyfriend knew it I was out of bed and the can was in his hand 'Please will you spray me' and a little flutter of the lashes, poor thing! But I was tanned by the time the adverts were over - and that is my point. It really is a quick fix and I swear by it!
The colour is more of an olive brown than a orang-a-tan! ;) The tan lasts around a week but like any tan it will stick around longer if you maintain it well (using moisturizer daily!) It also comes off very easy with a good exfoliating scrub if you are not impressed!
It is possible to use it yourself but obviously there are hard to reach places (like your back) where you will need a friend/sibling/partner to lend a hand! I also love this product for a last minute spritz before hitting the town!
What's ON & IN the tin
The picture above is actually the old design and they have now come back with a new and improved formula & packaging. They have made it a lot more girly now in a pink and silver aerosol can which is a lot more pleasing to the eye and definitely grabs my attention whilst shopping!
Water (aqua), Dimethyl Ether, SD Alcohol 40 (14%), Dihydroxyacetone, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Erythurlose, Tetrasodium EDTA, Polysorbate 80, Fragrance (Parfum), Blue 1 (CI 42090), Yellow 5 (Cl 19140), Red 40 (CI 16035)
This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin ageing, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
What they say about the product
Fake Bake is the UK's leading salon professional self tan and spray tan brand.
Fake Bake gives an instant sun-kissed colour and develops into a long lasting sunless fake tan by combining naturally derived tanning agents DHA and Erythulose guaranteeing longer lasting (up to 50% longer), more natural-looking results. We have developed botanical ingredients to remove parabens and artificial preservatives. Our specialist self-tans offer added benefits like anti ageing, anti cellulite and anti oxidants. Fake Bake has become the choice of beauty experts and celebrities alike. So if you want to fashion a tan like Jennifer Anniston and Cheryl Cole then Fake Bake is establishing itself as the best fake tan
Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Airbrush Self-Tanner is the easiest way to achieve a tan. The 'show where it goes' cosmetic guide colour assists you to apply and gives your skin an instant golden tan.
The product contains only the finest naturally derived, premium tanning agents DHA and Erythulose for a longer lasting, natural looking tan. The fast drying formula (dries in seconds) will develop in just a few hours into a perfect natural looking tan. The refined 360 nozzle gives a continuous spray that works at any angle, ideal for those hard to reach places.
How to Use
- They say to always wear gloves but I'm rather naughty - I just make sure I wash my hands thoroughly afterwards in case any excess tan is between my fingers, I do like to give them a lights spritz though as I don't think a tanned body and pale hands is the best look!
- Next shake the can gently before application.
- Hold can 30 - 35cm from your skin and spray in long even strokes.
- Two light coats are better than one heavy application. Allow to dry between applications.
- To tan your face, spray on sponge to apply.
- Allow to dry before dressing.
- A small amount of the colour guide may rinse off when showering but the tan will remain.
- Avoid contact with water or perspiration for at least 4 hours.
If you buy this product from Boots it will cost you £20.37 but you will receive 80 points onto your advantage card. I will definitely buy again although I may see if I can pick up a bargain on eBay or another online retailer as I do think it is slightly overpriced for a DIY tan. Well recommended!
Any questions, feel free to ask!!
