  • Fake bake aresol tanning spray,, be sure to get in your shower to spray it,, it goes on even and does not look orange, it does not have too much of that "tanny" smell. I sell professional versions of self tanners, and honestly I sell this one ALL of the time,, google it and see if there is a salon in your area that carries it,, you only need to use it about every 5 or 6 days!

  • Mary Kay makes a really good one. I have found that mixing it with regular non-scented lotion can help get it to spread on more evenly and not turn you as orange. Just make sure not to put it on the palms of your hands.

  • I use L'Oreal, Sublime bronze. But I only put it on at night.

  • kimigogo, This Fake Bake when spraying it on, do you have to rub in with hands also? Can you use this on your face as well?

  • LOreal Sublime bronze also. Its a little orange but it has a small scent and i seems to dry nonsticky to me.
