Fake Bake Original Self Tan is a slightly better than average self tanning product.
On the plus side, it goes on really easy and the tint gives an immediate bronze color.
Some of it’s negatives include an unpleasant smell and much of the color washes off after you shower.
Overall I think this product will be ok for some people, but many will be turned off by its smell.
Look and Feel
Fake Bake Original Self Tan Lotion comes out of the tube as a very dark lotion. In fact, it appears almost black in color. It’s consistency, however, is pretty thin.
This product goes on surprisingly well. It rubs in easily and doesn’t require a whole lot of effort.
The dark tint in it serves as a nice color guide so you know exactly where you’re putting it.
Because it is so dark, be sure to wear gloves when applying this one. And be careful around the sheets, as this one can get kind of messy.
Fake Bake Original Self Tan Lotion dries pretty quick for a lotion. It took about 30-60 minutes for it to feel like it had completely dried.
Smell (Before Application)
To be honest, we thought this product smelled really bad.
It smelled a little sour and mildewy. Definitely not something you want in your self tanner!
Smell (After Several Hours And The Next Day)
The terrible smell did dissipate after we washed the product off in the morning. There was still a faint DHA small, but nothing too offensive.
Fake Bake Original produced a somewhat nice shade of medium tan (with no real trace of orange). And we did like the fact that it appeared very even and very smooth.
We didn’t notice any streakiness or blotchiness.
How Long It Lasts
This Fake bake product lasted about 3-5 days, which we consider a tad above average among self tanning products.
OK For Men?
The color produced would be very nice for guys. However, most won’t tolerate the smell or ‘messiness’ of this lotion.
Fake Bake Original Self Tan Lotion costs $29.95 for a 6 ounce bottle. That works out to $4.99 per ounce, which falls a little to the expensive side when comparing self tanners.
