I bought this product when boots had it on offer at just £15. It says to use the gloves to avoid getting any on your hand and the mitt too apply. I just used the gloves as I find the mitts usually absorb the fake tan unlike the gloves. I firstly started on my legs and used about five sprays on my thigh. This covered it all and by the time I had rubbed it all up it had dried quite quickly. It took me about 15 minutes to cover my whole body including my back which was easy to reach just by spraying it. The smell is gorgeous it has a tropical scent it doesn't have the "biscuit" scent like some fake tans do. By the time I had finished my whole body it was dry so I put my pyjamas on and slept in it. When I woke up in the morning the guide colour was a really dark olive colour with some streaks which I new would wash off having used fake bake original before too. I washed it off in the shower and a lot of the guide colour instantly washed away the colour that was left was lovely and natural - very sun kissed and beige on my pale skin tone. This lasted me about a week before it needed washing off and it washes off easy there's no patchy residue left. Considering the small size of the bottle I have used it four times for occasions and still got a fair bit left.

I absolutely love the fake bake flawless, I have tried many other self tanners which have left me orange, streaky, and has an awful smell. Fake bake flawless leaves a nice golden tan without turning you orange and the mitt that comes with it is wonderful for getting an even tan. I applied it a couple evenings in a row to get my desired tan but you can apply as often as you would like and deffinitely exfoliate prior to tanning. It smells tropical which I LOVE! The color guide helps so you know where the tanner has already been applied and I am very happy with how quickly it dried. I paid 25 dollars at ulta but you can buy it cheaper on amazon for like 15 dollars. I deffinitely recommend this product for anyone wanting a nice even natural looking tan!

I love this self tanner. For years I have been too chicken to try anything that might turn me carrot colored skin. After reading so many reviews and watching videos on youtube, I finally purchased it on Amazon.com for less than 15$ . I exfoliated and applied the tanner 10 minutes later and went to bed once it dried. I woke up superrrr blotchy and I.panicked but once I took my shower it all evened out. I realized it was just the color guard and that I must of sweat during the night to cause the blotching. all this to say I rly love this product. you get a golden light brown tan with the first application. You just cant go wrong! The glove makes everything so much easier

I have tried quite a few drugstore brand self-tanners and this was my first venture with a high end brand self-tanner. With the high reviews on this product I thought I couldn't go wrong. We'll, I did. This is the worst I have ever tried. This stuff turned me yellow-orange. I don't know if my personal coloring just doesn't jive with this or what, as I have a naturally very yellow coloring. I will definitely be returning this.

I am a big fan of Fake Bake products however this 'flawless' self tan is disappointing.
*It dries quicker than most fake tans.
*It has a lovely coconut/exotic smell which has a very faint tan smell and doesn't make me feel sick.
*Has a dark guide to make it easier to apply.
*Comes with a good mitt.
*It is very messy to apply, be careful where you spray it.
*If you get any tiny bit of water or sweat, it will absolutely ruin the tan.
*It rubs off quite easily onto clothes or pyjamas.
*It is very patchy considering I exfoliated & used their own brand of oil free moisturiser.
*Has a tendency to look orange in places, making the tan look
*It is expensive to purchase.
*It sinks into my pores, especially on my face and looks really bad.
Overall, an average fake tan that is very poor quality considering its name is 'flawless' I think their Beyond Bronze range or Original lotion is much better!

First of, I am pretty new in self-tanners, and after doing 2 months of researching self-tanners all through youtube and amazon, I decided to go with this one.
I am overly happy that I did, because this is exactly what I was looking for. A self-tanner that will last me a long time (this one last for up to 6 days), a natural looking tan, and I mean it! I don't want to look orange! So this one gives me a nice natural looking tan, at least as natural as possible. By the way, I am very pale and don't tan well, if I do, I'll be itchy for a week. Now I am on my 6th bottle of this and so addicted to self tanning with this stuff. It just gives me that golden tan which I never had before.
The way I apply it is as followed:
First I exfoliate my skin with 2 exfoliating gloves and an oil-free body wash.
Then I get out of the shower, dry myself, add some body lotion to elbows, knees, and knuckles. I let it absorb for about 10 minutes, and then I start with the tan.
On the instructions it tells you to spray this on the mitt that it comes with, now I spray it directly on my skin. That way the mitt won't absorb that much color, plus I find that the tan will be a little more intense, which I like. So I apply this all over my body, and when I'm done, I put on my house clothes and make sure not to drip any water on myself. SERIOUSLY and ATTENTION! DON'T BE AROUND WATER WHILE THE SELF TANNER IS APPLIED, AFTER WASHING IT OFF IN THE MORNING, GO AHEAD, BUT NOT WHILE IT IS WORKING. I am saying this because one time I got a drop of water on my arm, and then when I washed it off the next day, I had that little patch with the rest of my skin being tanned. Anyways, I fixed it with applying a dab of tanner on it, but still. When you self tan, make it right!
That's the way I do it, and I can tell you, I love my skin color so much more tanned than not tanned now, that I just can't stop it. Plus, I got lots of compliments on it.
Oh, and if you really want to go dark with it, do it on the next evening again, but on the next evening you don't have to exfoliate.
I love the tan, and my husband loves it on me too.
The only thing that I don't like, is the fact that you must be so careful with the water after first applying it, but, it is worth it, because after washing the color guide off, you will be fine and end up with a beautiful golden tan.

I'm definitely a big fan of Flawless!
The smell is really great and the tan it gives me is on the darker side, which I like.
There are really only 2 issues I have with this self tanner...
First, it's in the form of a liquid, which can make application a little messy (I usually prefer lotions).
Second, it's very sticky on the skin once it dries. I put self tanners on at night and it was kind of hard to sleep with this one on.
But, with the exception of those 2 things, I like everything else about this product.

Just a word of advice, sometimes you can get a great price on this self tanner on Amazon. I got my most recent bottle for half off.
Anyways, I'm not positive if I'm going to repurchase. I am on the hunt for the most perfect sunless tanner...& this isn't exactly it. Although FakeBake definitely has its perks. This product is a lot better than a lot of its competition on the market.
-NO NASTY SUNLESS TANNER SMELL. That is the first thing I noticed. FakeBake Flawless Self Tanner does have a strong scent. But rather than rotten eggs, this stuff smells like sweet coconut & plastic-y chocolate. I do not mind that at all.
-It has a layer of bronzer so you know where you're applying it. Thus, no streaks or blotches.
-DRIES INSTANTLY. I have never had a product dry so quickly. Some may hate that quality as you have to blend it in very quickly...but I appreciate it. There's no waiting around for 2 hours before putting on clothes like *some* sunless tanners out there.
-I applied this to my face & it didn't clog my pores, break me out, nor cause my face to be a tacky oily disaster. That earns big points in my book.
Now with all that being said, here is why I'm not in love with FakeBake...
-The color isn't natural looking. At first I was thrilled that it had a red undertone...until it dried & the bronzer was washed off. The sunless tanner itself is very orangey on me. :( I am extremely pale...maybe this would work best on someone darker.
-The orange tint that was left behind........lasted for less than 24 hours. I have never had a self tanner wash off so quickly. It is way too much maintenance for me to reapply this EVERYDAY.

I think this is a great self tanner, and certainly the easiest I've ever used when it comes to application. The mitt that comes with it is a nice touch (I usually buy mitts anyway). The color is natural looking, and the formula makes your skin feel so smooth and soft. Be sure to exfoliate thoroughly, as you should with all self tanners. It's not super dark, so if you wanted a deep tan you would have to apply a couple of nights in a row. I'm definitely going to buy the full size once my sample runs out.
