This past Sunday was my birthday. I gotta tell you, these birthdays are not exactly as exciting as they used to be. Which, is even more reason to treat yo self.
Since my birthday plans included the Chicago Pride Parade before heading off to visit my folks in Massachusetts for a week, I decided to pull out a sunless tanner I received from Fake Bake.
Sunless tanning solutions are a great way to get color without harmful UV rays. However, I usually find I’m too lazy or busy to do it properly and that self-tanner smell can be pretty distracting. But I still wanted to try Flawless Darker as soon as I learned about it. I used to get pretty tan before I got serious about protecting my skin from the sun and frankly, I miss it. This tanner is the darkest in the Fake Bake line and I figured, why mess around? If you are going to tan, why not go for a deep, dark tan?
I was so happy and surprised with this product! It is crazy easy to apply — just spray it on the enclosed mitt, wipe on, and buff. The product shows up bronze on your skin so you can see where you have applied it. Honestly, the application barely took longer than my regular moisturizer. It dried quickly and did not come off on my clothes or sheets. Best of all, there was no tell-tale stench that typically occurs when most self-tanners react with skin. I have no idea how they did it but I swear there was no smell beyond the yummy tropical black coconut fragrance.
I wore Flawless Darker overnight for optimal results, per the instructions. I showered in the morning to reveal an amazing, dark, natural-looking, streak-free tan. I will definitely be using this product all summer long!
