Fake Bake Gold At Home Service
After a terrible summer, barely any sun and lots of rain, what is a girl to do to cheer herself up? Get an all round summer glow of course. Fake bake kindly offered to send one of their elite team to spray tan me with their fab products using their at home service, so I obviously jumped at the chance.
Fake Bake is the UK’s leading salon professional self tan and spray tan brand. Fake Bake gives an instant sun-kissed colour and develops into a long lasting sunless fake tan by combining naturally derived tanning agents DHA and Erythulose guaranteeing longer lasting (up to 50% longer), more natural-looking results. They have developed botanical ingredients to remove parabens and artificial preservatives. Their specialist self-tans offer added benefits like anti ageing, anti cellulite and anti oxidants. Award winning, Fake Bake has become the choice of beauty experts and celebrities alike.
Fake Bake sent Lucy, owner of Flash Tan ( a Hertfordshire based professional beauty service specialising in spray tanning and semi-permananent lash extensions), Lucy is part of the Fake Bake At Home Elite Team to turn me from pasty to a lovely shade of sunkissed bronze.
Lucy arrived with a pop-up booth, towels and equipment. We had a consultation to determine what tan was most suitable for my skin type and after deciding to go for Fake Bake Gold away we went. Firstly she prepped my skin, the areas that are more prone to dryness like elbows and knees with the Fake Bake moisturiser, which I may add smells gorgeous, then I had a very attractive hair net and set of foot protectors to put on, these prevent that unsightly fake tan on your soles look. The spray tanning itself takes about 5-10 minutes and then Lucy dried me all over with the dryer so no chance of any tan running. Perfect a quick, no mess easy at home professional way to tan. And look an instant gorgeous glow. The tan will gradually fade and as long as I follow the after care guidelines should last around a week to 10 days. The thing I especially love about self-tan is it instantly makes you look and feel slimmer. Here’s a bit more information below on the different at home spray tan products. We decided to go for Gold for my tan which is a favourite of Sarah Harding and Abbey Clancy.
Fake Bake Gold:
Fake Bake Gold Self-Tan Lotion is the most luxurious self-tan from Fake Bake. It blends the best quality and highest percentage of naturally derived tanning agents – DHA and Erythulose with two of the most powerful anti-oxidants – Pomegranate and Stable Green Tea, as well as Vitamins A and E. These counter the highly reactive free radicals in the environment which are known to weaken the protective immune system and result in thinning skin , a loss of elasticity, age spots and wrinkles. Fake Bake Gold has increased concentrations of the tanning agents to accelerate tan development, giving you a fully developed tan in 4 to 6 hours.
Fake Bake 60 Minute:
The longest lasting, most natural looking, ultimate fake tan just got even FASTER! A revolutionary, express, self tan liquid which develops into a beautiful, natural looking tan in 60 minutes. The tanning agents – dihydroxyacetone and erythulose are activated upon contact with the skin. Accelerators speed up the development time and a golden glow can be achieved in an hour. To achieve an even darker tan, there’s no need to re-apply, simply leave 60 Minutes on longer then rinse off the colour guide to reveal the tan. We do not recommend leaving on any longer than three hours. This light weight, fast drying formula is non-sticky and does not clog the pores.
Fake Bake Original:
The Cult Hero Tan of the Decade!
Fake Bake Original Self-Tan Lotion’s easy glide formula and ‘show where it goes’ cosmetic colour
guide enables you to apply your self-tan with ease and confidence. A combination of cutting edge naturally derived tanning agents DHA and Erythulose work with the melanin cells which lie in the top layers of your skin to develop into a tan that compliments your skin tones for a perfectly natural looking result. If you desire a darker tan, Fake Bake Original can be reapplied over consecutive days.
New York Times ‘ Best Self Tanner’
Love It! ‘Best Tan Award’
Woman Magazine ‘ Best Self Tanning Product’
HARPERS BAZAAR – “ A must have beauty product for this summer – James Read”
The Independent – “One of the most foolproof brands of self tan on the market”
Don’t forget ladies the key to a great self-tan is also the aftercare. Once your spray tan has been applied, it takes roughly 4-8 hours to develop. During that time:
- Avoid contact with water, e.g. swimming, showering and washing hands
- Avoid brushing your teeth as toothpaste can strip colour from around the mouth
- Drink hot drinks through a straw as hot water can also strip colour from around the mouth
- Do not apply any products over the developing tan
- Avoid other beauty/hair treatments whilst tan is developing
- Avoid doing anything that will make you sweat (sweating can cause the tan to go patchy)
After your tan has developed:
- Rinse off remaining colour guide with warm water until the water runs clear then use a mild soap
- Avoid products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) usually found in anti-aging products
- Avoid swimming pools as Chlorine will prematurely fade your tan
- Pat the skin dry rather than rub after a bath or shower
- Moisturise daily using products such as Fake Bake’s Skin Smoothie Oil, Oil Free Moisturiser, Mistifier or Tan Enhancing Lotion as this will help prolong your tan by hydrating the skin and locking in the colour.
Thanks so much to Lucy at Flash Tan and all the lovely ladies at Fake Bake. I look forward to trying and testing out all your new products.
