fakebake best tanning lotion 2015The first product is an excellent lotion that comes in a great price (around $15). I have personally used this lotion last summer and I had great results. My skin is white, especially my feet and using this lotion I achieved to have a nice color that looks like a natural tan without having to be exposed to the sun except for my normal holiday week. It comes in a bottle with 170 ml. The smell is not annoying like other products and it is very easy to apply. The only downside is the glove that is not so comfortable but you can use it with your bare hands. I totally recommend this product, it is one of the Beauty Tonic‘s favorite and I consider this to be the best indoor tanning lotion for 2018.button_readmore-amazon

Indoor Tanning Lotion Application Tips

Here are a couple of tips in order to use an indoor tanning lotion properly (or sunless tanning lotion) and have the darkest results.


  • First of all, it would be good after the indoor tanning lotion application to have a peeling in order to remove the dead skin cells. This will allow the lotion to spread easier and more effective on your skin.
  • Use a moisturizer on all dry spots such as knees and elbows.
  • Use your tanning lotion in the evening because clothes and simple everyday moves could make your skin fade.


  • Use special gloves in order to spread the lotion. That way your palms will not turn into black.
  • For each body part use the same dose. Spread the cream well and be careful not to leave white spots. You don’t want to look like a dalmatian dog right?
  • Look yourself in a mirror in a room with bright light to make sure that you have put more product on some spots.


  • Avoid to wear too tight clothes for at least 6-8 hours after the application.
  • Do not take a bath, shower and avoid sweating for the nest 6-8 hours after you spread the tanning lotion.
  • Make a peeling after 3 days to help the color fade evenly otherwise the spots that come into contact with the clothes will look white and the rest tanned.
