Fake tan testing: Fake Bake 60 minute tan

Fake tanning often conjures up mental images of having to sleep overnight while your tan develops, running the risk of brown bed sheets and a streaky result.

Fake Bake have come up with the perfect solution, creating a tan that develops in only 60 minutes.


The 60 minute tan comes in liquid format, and is best applied with a sponge mitt. The lotion is brown, enabling you to see where you've applied it to, ensuring that no random white bits pop up (we've all been there).

Despite having a pump spray bottle, Fake Bake advise you to spray the tan onto the mitt, before rubbing into the skin using circular motions. Like all tans, you need to prepare skin before application - use a body scrub to remove any dead skin cells and moisturise beforehand for best results.

I found the 60 minute tan really easy to apply - the lotion is quite runny, but using the mitt helped ensure that it didn't go everywhere, and made an even application a lot easier. The lotion itself dries quite quickly, so after about 5 minutes, I popped on a pair of shorts, and did some housework while the tan developed.

Fake Bake advise you to leave the tan on for 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium tan and up to 3 hours for a deep tan. The packaging does recommend not leaving it on for longer than 3 hours - I assume that this is because you will turn out a bit mahogany if you do so!

I left mine on for about 90 minutes before washing it off in the shower, and was left with a very even, natural looking, golden tan. It lasted a good 4 days before fading, and I didn't experience any obvious patchiness as it faded.

If you're looking for a tan that you can do in a hurry, I think this would be perfect. It's also great for people that want just a subtle hint of colour as you can modify the depth of colour by how long you leave it on for. I'll definitely be using this again throughout the summer.

Fake Bake 60 minute tan costs £24.95 and can be found in John Lewis, and online at Feel Unique, Amazon and other stockists.

  1. This sounds like a good idea! Some self tanners take forever to develop. It's great that it lasted 4 days, too.
