I'm using Fake Bake self tanners for last three years. Flawless is the first one that caused allergy. My skin is medium shade with yellow undertones, so the color is very suitable even for my face.
In ten minutes after application I have multiple broken vessels all over my face, my chest, my back, however product seems fine for my legs and arms. I've tried it for 4 times. Each time with the same effect... Won't buy it again, would use the rest of the bottle for legs.

Pros:
- smells good. My husband loves it. He was begging me to stop using other Fake Bake products because of the way they smell and was very skeptical about me trying out another one.
- application is fast and easy

Cons:
- it's the first Fake Bake product I had a streaks from
- the color is too yellow to compare to other products from same brand
- application is easy, but messy
- my allergy lasts longer than tan

This is the best self tanner I've tried. I spray onto the mitt and very lightly rub it on my arms, legs, hands etc. I do not use this on my face. I use Tart bronzing powder for that.

After giving up on self tanners last year, I decided to try again this year and found that applying to dry skin before your go to bed is the way to go. Before I was applying when I got out of the shower and that is bad, bad, bad. It was streaky and I got really hot for some reason. Please also keep in mind that I am very, very fair and chemically sensitive.

Fake Bake is a wonderful self tanner and gives great natural color. I have been putting on my legs, arms and chest every 2-3 nights before I go to bed and have been staying an even tan color this summer.

Pluses:
The color go on very evenly if you use the mitt
The color fades naturally like a tan would
No weird chemical smell
Smells lightly of cococnuts
Found it decently priced Amazon - got it for $18

Minuses -
Too dark for my face

Now that I've found mousse formulas, I don't think I could ever go back to liquid self tanners. Even with the help of a tanning mit for application, they're still way too messy. That is my biggest beef with Fake Bake Flawless Self Tan Liquid. I ended up giving it to my mom because it was too much of a pain in the you-know-what.

What I did like about this product:
-Somewhat believable color
-No nasty odor that some of the original self tanners had (think cat pee..)
-Color-guard helps for an even application

Other cons of this product:
-Tacky consistency; I prefer one that dries almost instantly.
-No color options for very light skin.
-Lasted 3 days.

Being a little lazy and reviewing 3 self-tanners at once (I only do my legs and always prepare by exfoliating and moisturizing many hours in advance and apply tanner at night a couple of hours before bed). I've used the 3 below at least 4 times each:

Fake Bake Flawless Self Tan Liquid - No
Best applied with Mitt
Pros: Dries quickly, best smell of all
Cons: Streaky, patchy, messy.Color guide is too dark.Color doesn't matter if it's not even! Only lasts 2 days or so. Even though it dries quickly still can get weird areas (bend behind knees or ankles) before next morning rinse.

St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse - Yes
Best applied with Mitt
Pros: Even, nice color, Dries ok. Lasts a good 4 days before fading evenly.
Cons: Doesn't smell that great but goes away after rinsing with water in morning.

St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Body Lotion - Yes
Pros: Even, nice color, can apply with just disposable gloves and not mitt. Lasts a couple of days and reapplication doesn't make it too dark or streaky. Smells alright.
Cons: With use about every 3 days, can get a little yellow-y but not bad. Slower drying but no color guide so staining not as much of an issue.

Love the product and tan . Super fast drying smells decent . I would recommend using the glove mit when applying the liquid . Spraying the product right on your skin is kinda messy an goes on uneven . Love the product all in all ,wouldn't use any other and always recommend this product to females and males

Loved this stuff!! This is my first self tanner so I don't have anything to compare it to but I will say I am extremely fair(type 1 on Fitzpatrick scale) and this made me look like I just got off the beach. No orange tint. Looked completely natural. I don't like the mitt it comes with, I feel like it's not as good as evenly spreading out the tan after a few uses.

I can't rave about this product enough. It goes on easily. Doesn't smell icky like most self tanners. Lasts a decent amount of time. And it's only $15 on Amazon. What more could you ask for?!

So I have used the St Tropez regular bronzing mousse and I really liked how this Fake n Bake Tanner dried up so so quickly and smelled LOVELY. Like coconuts!! I wish my lotion smelled like this !! Also, I applied this on my face and NO BREAKOUTS which I always had when I used the St Tropez mousse on my body. I know youre probably not supposed to use this stuff on your face anyway but hey its a bonus if it doesnt break you out either. Its also more affordable so thats nice. I dont really have any complaints regarding the packaging.

The only cons are:
-not dark enough with just one time application, so probably would have to routine apply 3 nights in a row
-with applying it only once, it doesnt last too long but could be because it wasnt dark enough for my skin and I just couldnt really see much of a difference
