I love a bit of fake tan and I am moderate user pretty much all year round. When I say moderate I mean that I used to go for full-on dark tans, but these days stick to a subtle glow that makes my skin look alive without being obviously tanned. I am a fan of Fake Bake’s products and so was super excited to try out the latest launch from the brand. Here’s what you need to know about the brand new Fake Bake Flawless Coconut Tanning Serum. Exciting!
Coconut is huge in beauty right now which bodes extremely well for this newbie. It uses Coconut Oil to care for the skin whilst amping up the glow.
Fake Bake Flawless Coconut Tanning Serum Features
- Coconut Oil – a natural anti-ageing ingredient & source of moisture which nourishes, firms and improves skin tone
- Lightweight Serum formulation – provides a refreshing and melting effect on contact with skin
- Hyaluronic Acid – plumps and smooths skin
- Premium naturally-derived tanning agents (DHA, Erythrulose and DMI) without artificial preservatives
- Glycerin – A powerful humectant that prevents moisture loss
- Silk Amino Acids – help to prevent dehydration
It is a gorgeous serum-gel texture that melts into the skin. It has a dark pigment so that you can see where it’s going. This can be scary at first but it blends in so easily that you lose the fear factor pretty fast.
Make sure to use the gloves provided with the Fake Bake Flawless Coconut Tanning Serum to apply. They work really well with the product texture, which just glides over the skin, melting as it goes, instantly tinting the skin with a beautiful bronziness.
The lasting colour develops in 4-6 hours after which time you can wash off the colour guide. As I am extremely pale (probably a lot paler than I realise because I think fake tan is now part of my DNA!) I left the tan on overnight and washed it off in the morning.
It left me with a natural looking glow and a lovely even, streak-free soft tan that really suits my skin tone. I think if you were naturally darker, it would give you a darker tan. I find that Fake Bake tans are pretty intuitive, if that doesn’t sound too silly! It didn’t dry out my skin at all.
I shall be including this in my weekly beauty regime as Spring approaches so that I can reveal a bit of tanned and soft skin, as and when the sun peeps out.
