Famous Dave’s Self Tanner Review and Giveaway



Now that I’m a mom, I don’t have a whole lot of time to spend to myself like I used to. The one thing that I enjoyed more than anything before I became a mom was getting a whole 20 minuets to myself in a nice warm tanning bed at our local tanning salon but since “Bug” has gotten older I’ve found it pretty hard to find time to get to the tanning salon so I’ve turned to self tanners and to be completely honest I have used a lot and never found one that didn’t turn me orange and I was about to give up completely on my tan and say forget self tanners they just don’t work….well that was until I was sent Famous Dave’s Dark with Bronzer Self Tanner to review!!

About Famous Dave’s Self Tanner (Taken From Website):

Famous Dave hasn't just popped up out of nowhere, we’ve been working non-stop for the last 12 years fine-tuning our self tanning products until we reached what we firmly believe to be the Best Fake Tan you can buy in a bottle.

Why Famous Dave's Self Tanner's Satisfy All Your Sunless Tanning Needs:

● It's FAST!...Famous Dave's Moisture Tan™ lotions and airbrush solutions dry to
the touch almost immediately as it is applied...you can dress within 5 minutes!

● It's Fragrance-Free...Added fragrance amplifies the odor of DHA. Being
fragrance-free virtually eliminates the smell on your skin, clothes, and in your bed!

● No Orange Color...Famous Dave's Self Tanner does not contain the frequently
used ingredients that cause skin to turn orange in color.

● Famous Dave's Tanner Bathes Your Skin...While developing into a natural
bronze glow, Famous Dave's Tanner bathes your skin in the rich emollients of Aloe
Vera, Sesame, and Jojoba, which soften and add healthy moisture.


My Thoughts:

I was sent a bottle of Famous Dave's Moisture Tan Dark With Bronzer and an awesome applicator mitt to review, and I can’t say this enough I so wish I had a decent digital camera to take before and after pictures of this amazing self tanner!

Once the bottle and mitt arrived I couldn’t wait to get started so per the instructions that night before I applied it I took a shower and made sure to exfoliate really good, and then had my husband help apply the lotion to my back after I did my legs, arms and other areas and because it was really close to bedtime I made sure the lotion was completely dried and went to bed only to wake up to a beautiful dark tan, that I totally wasn’t expecting!!!! To be completely honest here I was expecting to wake up burn orange and have to spend the rest of the week in hiding in my home like I’ve had to do with other self tanners but to my complete surprise I was so dark and totally not orange!!!

I’m also loving that the tan has lasted quite a while I was only expecting a few days but with just a little time once a week I maintain a beautiful dark tan that is so beautiful and something I couldn’t have achieved in a tanning bed! I love that it’s fragrance free and don’t have a stinky smell like other self tanners and it doesn’t dry my skin like tanning in a tanning bed does, this self tanner is perfect in every way!

Bottom Line:

I’m loving Famous Dave’s Self Tanner and I will be using it for a very long time! It’s completely changed the way I look at self tanning and I’m no longer afraid to self tan with Famous Dave’s because I know that I’m going to get beautiful results each time!

I really recommend Famous Dave’s if your looking for a quick and beautiful tan, but don’t have the time or cash to spend on a tanning bed!
