I've been thinking the same thing. Haven't tried anything on my face yet though. I use Neutrogena body bronzer on my body and that seems to work well. My friend uses banana boat self tanner on her face often and it looks ok.
I would def. check the ingredients first. and try a small area (like your neck or under your chin) first ... just to see how your skin would react
I use Banana Boat Vita-sun. Works great and it doesn't make you turn orange. I use it on my face and it actually makes your red spots darker. But if you cover it up with make up then you skin tone looks more even.??? Go fig. I don't know why but the blotches come out darker but your overall complextion looks better -- with make-up that is.
