Fake Bake Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Winner #44 Crystal


How do you get that perfect tan when you hear all the negatives about UV rays and tanning beds? Is it really worth the harm you may be causing to your skin by soaking in those rays? Well, thanks to FakeBake those of you that are wanting that sun kissed glow can still get it without worrying about damaging your skin.

FakeBake is a line of self tanning products that contain botanically extracted ingredients and no preservatives.  Their products moisturize, hydrate and protect the body without clogging pores or irritating sensitive skin. They guarantee that the use of their self tanning products will not turn skin orange or yellow and have no harsh odor due to the fact that they are not chemically based. What will you get?  "The richest looking tan in the most luxurious way without the sun."

Even though I am naturally tan, living in Alaska I do tend to lose some of my color due to the lack of sun. I was given the opportunity to try a couple of FakeBake products and was eager to see if I could get my bronze on.

Fake Bake Golden Faux Glo - Shimmer
Shimmer - Get your tan without the committment. Completely washable temporary tan for face and body, no tanning actives.

This shimmer gives an instant golden bronze to any skin tone. Perfect for my winter Alaskan complexion. It gives that nice boost of color so you don't look washed out. Instead of hanging out in 0 degree snowy weather it looks like I just came back from a tropical vacation. I love how smooth this goes on and it washes off just as quick and easy. I also love that it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I would recommend this stuff to anyone looking for that summer glow.

I was also given the Tanning Body Butter for Dry Skin to review.

Allows you to build a beautiful tan using the softest shea butter ingredients available! Light enough to use daily to build on top of the tan you already have. Can also be used as your daily moisturizer with it's light weight texture offering a velvety softness to skin while providing a sheer bronze color!
This cream contains Vitamin E and is a great moisturizer for dry skin. It leaves a subtle glow to your skin but what I was unimpressed with was the actual texture of the cream and application. It is a very thick and rich cream and is a bit hard to apply. I felt like I had to use a lot of it to get it to fully cover the area I wanted. It did not go on smooth and eventually after trying it a couple of times I gave up. Perhaps someone else has had better luck with this stuff, I would love to hear about it!

In addition to their self tanning products FakeBake also has a line of cosmetics called Bronzy Babe.


I was given the opportunity to review Bronzy Babe lip glosses in three different colors; High Maintenance, Prissy Lips, and Plum Crazy. First of all I love how these lip glosses look! Second I love that they do not dry out my lips. Third I love how glossy they are. They have a ton of shimmer to them and leave your lips looking super sparkly. My favorite of the three is High Maintenance, it's perfect for those nights out when you absolutely want to be noticed. It gives you the perfect ruby red lips. I also really loved Prissy Lips this is is more of a daytime gloss, only a touch of pale pink color but still with a lot of shine. I ended up giving Plum Crazy to fellow GGG author Tracy because as soon as I saw the purplish color I knew it would look great on her fair skin and with her blond hair. I was right and she says it is one her favorite lip glosses ever.

You can get these products and more online.

FakeBake would also like to give one Girly Girl reader the chance to win a Fake Bake Golden Faux Glo - Shimmer and Bronzy Babe Lip Gloss.
