Sometimes you want to go for a hit of tan that makes a maximum impact. Our Fake Bake Double Shot Espresso Ultimate Gel is all about providing your skin with an easy boost with long-lasting results: forget subtle, this is about going deeper and darker. Our innovative gel formula glides on with ease and is packed with moisturising boosters, including jojoba oil, so that your ultimate tan is non-drying as well as gorgeously bronzed. Its highly concentrated colour guide makes it easy for you to see where you are applying, and for maximum impact leave it on for up to 6 hours, while our blend of tanning ingredients with an extra DHA boost get to work. It's the perfect Double Shot: a little goes a long way. 

Why is Fake Bake Double Shot Espresso a Harknett Must-Have? 

Our Global Creative Consultant James Harknett says,

 “Double Shot has a subtle espresso scent that leaves you with the type of tan that's asking for a night out, a great date, or a picture-perfect occasion. It’s the ultimate solution if you want a high-fashion, statement tan and its lightweight formula gives a really bronzed pay off. Our just-got-back from Bali tan, with no sun or passport required.”

    New favourite tan

    Posted by Chloe on 23rd Nov 2020

    I’ve used fakebake flawless darker for going on 10 years! However this is even better, the colour is the deepest tan I’ve got from a bottle and not a hint of orange! Goes on easy and is lasting longer than the flawless tan!

    The best fake bake to date

    Posted by Ciara on 4th Aug 2020

    Always used the darkest mousse but thought I’d give double shot a wee go for a change, and I’m delighted I did. I’m a ginge, so fair & freckles but love a tan and was finding the mousse not lasting as many days as I would like.The double shot is quite thick but goes a long way and has the loveliest tone. I remove the pump and tap out on to the mitt to get enough out and it covers beautifully. The depth of colour last a good 5 days, and smells like coffee ☕️ Love it!!!!

    Lovely natural tan

    Posted by Nicole on 18th May 2020

    Great tan, love it. Only one thing, not a lot of tan comes out the bottle at one time so I had to keep pumping it quite a lot to get a decent amount out.

    Double Shot Espresso Tan

    Posted by Rosie on 4th May 2020

    I recently purchased this product, as id seen the amazing reviews on it also due to the fact it was on offer at the time of lockdown!. The product arrived very quickly, and is presented in a lovely box with gloves included. You only need to small amount as I think a little product goes a long way, it looks very dark on the gloves but once you apply it, it easily glides on and produces a lovely colour. I tan every week and I believe this is such a great colour and looks very natural even my freckles shone through, so defiently not a heavy colour.
    totally recommmend this product. 10/10 from me
