What's The BEST Self Tanner???

I am looking for a GOOD self tanner. I am to the point where I don't care about price so long as it doesn't leave me looking like a carrot. I'm sure you all know how frustrating that can be!
I have always heard good things about Estee Lauder self tanner but have never tried it. Also, I've been hearing a lot about this stuff called Fake Bake. I heard them talking about it on the view not too long ago and many celeb's are using it.
Has anyone used any of these products? If not, could you recommend something?
I have tried Neutrogina and it looked orange on me...I used the spray mist stuff. Also, I have tried this stuff from my salon called "coulor". It was better then the neutro. but still had a slight orange glow. It was also in a foam form which I really liked.

I have been using a gradual self tanner by queen helene called cocoa glow. This stuff is GREAT!!! i love it. it really looks natural and not orange at all. I put some on after my bath and it dries quickly and doesnt stain. I had to buy mine online but sometimes u can find it at walgreens or walmart.

Steph - I will look into that! Is it a lotion or foam? Does it wash off easily? About how much do you pay for it?? I will look for it on ebay :-) Thanks!

Jergens Natural Glow for sure! The most natural looking self tanner I have ever ever found and I have tried A LOT!

Re: What's The BEST Self Tanner??? :cool:

It is a lotion and usually i will have a quick rinse in the morning. I think I paid close to $10. I like it cuz it feels like u r just putting lotion on ur skin. I have tried jergens and i didnt like the way it smelled and it just didnt seem natural on me, i have friends that like it though, just not for me i have also heard that fakebake is good although i have not tried it

I have searched all over for the Queen Helene Cocoa Glow and cannot find it....maybe Ill have to look online as much as I hate ordering things online. I agree with the smell of the Jergens - not natural, but works for some people.

I definitely wanna try that stuff!! I didn't care for Jergen's either, but a lot of people really like it. It smelled like clay to me. I use Neutrogena Micromist and the misting airbrush spray is easy to use and comes out in a light color (even though it says 3 shades darker.. doesnt for me!).

I've also heard good things about tan towels.. I got one towlette but still haven't used it.. so I'll have to see! I used a Lancome kind and it smelled SO BAD.. it was a lotion. I also don't like the foaming ones b/c they usually smell stronger than the rest and they always stain my clothes if they tinted.

Re: What's The BEST Self Tanner??? :cool:

Sorry for recommending the Micromist.. I didn't see that it didn't work out for you.. That is crazy how one product can be so much different for other people.. I wish it gave me MORE color, haha. The only thing I can think of is that I put on lotion after my shower, and put on the self tanner AFTERWARDS so maybe that's why it comes out more natural on me.. who knows!!

Sephora has the fake bake products.. never tried them.. but I know they have testers out, so maybe you can do a patch test on a section of your body that is covered.

Re: What's The BEST Self Tanner??? :cool:

Well, I purchased the Fake Bake brand off of the internet about 2 days ago! I haven't used it yet but I will let you all know how it works on me! At their website it was 49.99 plus shipping but I managed to find it on a different site for 23.99 plus shipping. If it works then it is worth every penny!

Re: What's The BEST Self Tanner??? :cool:

If I end up not liking the Fake Bake then I am definantly going to try the Queen Helene Cocoa Glow. It was very easy to find online and the price is amazing!!! You can't got wrong with 4.80 for a 6 oz.!! I noticed that they had a Cocoa Glow with Mango and then one with Aloe. Which one do you use? I may try this brand just for the heck of it. I might end up liking it better and that would save some $$$ - Thanks - Catherine

I just bought the prescrub for tanless tanning from neutrogena (I guess you are supposed to exfoliate prior to self tanning, so you won't streak) and it came with the neutrogena tanning spray...I'll let you know how it works !

Ok, I absolutely hate the spray ! I used the scrub when I showered and then used the spray, which stinks, because it's colorless and you have no idea where it was sprayed and I have orange spots on certain parts of my legs and absolutely no color anywhere else (I'd rather have no color everywhere, then orange spots anywhere !) So needless to say, I DO NOT recommend the Neutrogena Sunless Tanning Spray !
