Out of all the different fake tans on the market nowadays, I still think this is the best around. I have a skin condition with uneven pigment and by using this lotion it means I am less self-conscious, as it gives an great even colour. I won't use anything else. Plus I got an offer with 241, bonus!!! I'm ready for the summer now! Love Fake Bake!
best fake tan
I've used this for years now , I'm naturally very pale skinned so finding a tan that doesn't turn me orange is a nightmare .. I used this one years ago after trying pretty much everything on the market and to this day people even family think it's natural .. Turns you 50% darker than you are naturally and fades off really even if used correctly . No false tan smell I love it
still using 3 yrs down line
best ever for bit of colour
