Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid

Hey Ladies! Today I thought I would share with you a recent fake tan discovery which I have been absolutely loving! I have tried many others including St Tropez, St Moritz, Rimmel, Xen tan...etc. Xen tan was my favourite, well it still is but now it shares its top spot with Fake Bake Flawless!

You can pick 'Fake Bake Flawless self-tan liquid' up from Feelunique for £18. It comes with a tanning mitt and a glove, which it says for you to put the glove on underneath the mitt. I just used the mitt on its own and it was fine, no tan seeped through onto my hand. You then spray the tanning liquid onto the mitt and apply it that way. First of all this is one of the easiest tans I've ever applied! I find you have to really work with most tans and be careful when applying. This one is just so easy it glides on beautifully, no patches! and sinks straight into the skin! I hate it when you apply a tan and you feel sticky for ages afterwards! It actually puts me off applying it, as I usually like to apply tan before bed but hate going to bed feeling sticky! This one doesn't do that! Which is great! Another thing that puts me off fake tan, is the awful fake tan smell! This is another thing I love about Fake Bake Flawless! It doesn't have that awful fake tan smell! Most tans are really strong smelling, this one has the mildest smell out of all the tans I've tried, It doesn't smell of that 'biscuit smell' at all, if anything it smells like sunscreen!

As you can see from the picture above it sprays out pretty dark. It's one of those tans with an instant guide colour so you can see where you have applied it, you should then leave it on for at least 8 hours. I leave it on overnight then wash off! It leaves you with a beautiful golden bronze tan, not orangy at all, just really natural looking and olive toned!
The instant guide colour is great if you are off out and need a tan fast. This is one I could easily apply and go straight out as it doesn't go on patchy, it doesn't have that strong fake tan smell, and I haven't experienced any tan transferring onto clothes or bed sheets!

Before and after - Top - with tan, Bottom - without
The picture shows a before and after, obviously the top arm I have applied the tan and the bottom has no tan to show the difference! This is just one application so you can definitely build up to make it even darker! The wear of  this tan is also really good, I applied it a couple of times before I went on holiday for a week and at the end of the week it had mostly worn off but I still had a subtle hint of tan after 7 days! It wore off evenly too without going patchy!

I think you can tell I love this tan right?! Thinking about it and writing all this down has actually made me realise it cant share it's top spot with Xen tan, it is definitely my favourite! and has knocked Xen tan off the top spot! lol. I hope you enjoyed this post! Make sure to let me know if you have tried this tan? I would love to know your thoughts! Also I would love to know what your favourite fake tans are?


  1. That looks a great colour, ive been having a really hard time with fake tans recently. theyve been really drying my skin out. How was this on your skin afterwards?

  2. I didn't find it drying, If you've been having trouble with fake tans drying your skin out though I would say this should be fine, just apply some moisturiser after :) xx

  3. This looks awesome, perfect for last minute nights out!


  4. Great review :) might have to try it

    love char_beyy xx

  5. I'm an absolute fake tan whore and am yet to find one that rivals Xen Tan. Plus, who doesn't want to smell of coffee?! Ha.



Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love reading your thoughts xx
