(Review) The Best Self Tanners for Spring/Summer 2011

Ladies, it’s never to early to think and prepare for your sunless self tanners, right? Being out there under the sun is fun, but those rays can be so dangerous. In the spirit of true skin care, we have gathered up a few of our favorites to help you “fake it” instead of “bake it.”
Fake Bake Self Tanner
Fake Bake “Fair” Buildable Self Tanner
Fake Bake is one of the products that “it” girls go to. It’s one of the leading self-tanning formulas, and is known for pampering all skin tones and types. We want to spotlight a special formula called Fair, Fake Bakes’ build your own tan. Fair is a moisturizing, easy to apply, slow-building tanner designed for the woman who wants to control her results a bit more.
Fair is wonderful on even the palest of skin tones and builds gradually so the effect is easy to control. It also has Fake Bakes’ signature guide color so you can see exactly where it’s going as you apply it. Fair is available at leading salons nation wide and retails for $29.00.
