Self Tanning Lotion For Fair Skin

Updated on December 30, 2008

Having very fair skin that does not tan easily and instead burns can be a drag. I have always been light complected and never could get a tan just by laying in the sun for an hour or so like everyone else could. I hated it. I would always burn blister and peel with no tan ever.

Since I had so much trouble keeping a tan or even getting a base tan I have used lots and lots of self tanning lotion that you can buy from the store. I never had any luck with any brand I tried since they all would leave my skin with that ugly orange tint. I don't care what the bottle says the lotion will or will not do it always turned my skin orange.

There is one brand that I did try and absolutely loved. It did not leave me looking orange, left no streaks, and it was so easy to put on. It is called Faux Tan from Bare Escentuals. It is priced a little high for a self tanner but it works. Makes your skin a gorgeous sun kissed bronze. If you have not tried Faux Tan before and have fair skin you must try it. You will love it I promise.

When you first put it on it is white for a few seconds so you can see where it has went on or not. This way you will not have any streaks. Do not wax your legs before you put this on because it will not work. It lasts for 5 or 6 six days and will not come off when you sweat. You can find Faux Tan at the Bare Escentuals website or you can possibly get a cheaper price on Amazon or even at Sephora.

If you have been looking for a great self tanning lotion that works and you have fair skin you need to try this. I love it and am so glad I tried it. It actually looks like a real tan and it has a nice smell. This stuff really works.
