Fake Tan
« on: May 01, 2016, 05:06:33 AM »
Anyone know of any good fake tan that doesn't have that horrible biscuit smell? I currently use fake bake and it's good apart from the smell that comes with it.

I know what you mean about the smell of these types of products. Some years ago, I tried a couple, and no matter what, they STUNK to high heavens, no matter what I did. Even my husband wondered WHAT had I put on my body. Some people's body chemistry makes that smell worse than others, and I guess I was one of them. So no self-tanners for me. Plus I'm sensitive to smells anyway. Best of luck finding one you can tolerate.:)

I don't use fake tan, but I have been told that St. Tropez is 'the' thing. Again, not sure if you can get it in the US. Have you tried a moisturiser that gives a hint of a tan, like Garnier's Summer Body Lotion? I have used it on my legs in the past and it was fine. You need to exfoliate very carefully to avoid streaks, even though it is a moisturising lotion.

In my experience, St. Tropez is the best and fastest tan but it does have some of that horrible fake tan smell.  I read on the Sephora site of a product that is supposed to be odorless but I can't remember the name.

There's a fairly new one called Vita Liberata. It's supposed to smell great and last quite long. It was developed by a very fair Irish girl. I have tried BareMineral's Faux Tan;it has a pleasant smell;I would say almonds. Pretty color,too.

I agree that St Tropez is great, but that smell.. It is really irritating and annoying, I feel like everyone around me smells it.

I think St Tropez is the best. By the way I've recently found a great post on TheBeautyInsiders website about how self-tanners work - it was really helpful and good to know info :)
