Here at Sunkissed, we are a serious fountain of fake-tan knowledge. There’s nothing we don’t know about getting your glow on – if there were awards for who knew the most about tanning, we’re pretty sure we’d win. #HumbleBrag.

So, we’ve decided to answer the most googled fake tan questions ever – you are so welcome. From the sensible to the slightly less so, let’s dive in to the weird and wonderful world of the highest searched fake tan FAQs so far…


How to fake tan?

We’re not surprised that this tops the list for most googled fake tan questions – but luckily, we’re here to help! In fact, we’ve got a whole video on how to apply fake tan, and we’ve got a super handy article on some genius hacks to ensure your tan looks unreal 24/7.


Is fake tan vegan?

Not all fake tan is vegan – but honey, of course ours is! Sunkissed fake tan is vegan, cruelty-free, and our bottles are derived from sugarcane – meaning they’re sustainable, 100% recyclable, and 100% renewable. Just saying.


Is fake tan good for your skin? Is fake tan bad for spots?

We all know that skin health equals skin wealth, so fear not – Sunkissed fake tan is A-okay for your skin. Sunkissed products are dermatologically tested for all skin types – including sensitive – plus, they contain lots of moisturising ingredients and they are free from alcohol, an ingredient known to dry the skin. However, if you’re using a product for the first time, we’d always recommend a patch test first!


Can you use fake tan as makeup?

Fake tan isn’t technically makeup, but if you’re looking for something that blurs pores and imperfections whilst delivering instant colour – much like a body foundation – look no further than the Sunkissed Perfect Blur. This tinted body foundation adds a touch of shimmer and a golden glow to your skin – but washes off, like regular makeup. Result!


What’s the best fake tan?

Not that we’re biased, but we think our Sunkissed fake tan is the ultimate in bronzing goals. Not only are our tans vegan and cruelty-free, they deliver OMG-amazing colour – from Medium Mousse for a subtle glow to Ultra-Dark for seriously deep tones. Plus, we’ve got a Gradual Tan Lotion too, which keeps skin moisturised whilst delivering a golden glow.


How to remove fake tan?

Want to strip that tan that’s been hanging around a little too long? We got you, boo. You need one of our fake tan removal mitts – and we’ve got two to choose from! For really stubborn tan that just won’t budge, you need the Sunkissed Charcoal Eraser Mitt – this bad boy takes care of old tan in a flash – plus, the active charcoal ingredient helps to cleanse and detox your pores. For everyday exfoliation, we recommend our Sunkissed Tan Be Gone Eraser Mitt – the duo-sided glove has a pink area for buffing and priming, and a purple area for more thorough exfoliating. Old tan is so last week…


Can you fake tan your face?

Of course you can, sis! Apply using a mitt as you would your body – and if you’ve got a spare makeup brush or sponge, use it to buff the product into the skin to ensure a perfect match with your neck and chest.
