Rated 4 out of 5Â by SouthGirl Try it overnight
This product is exactly what it claims to be: a deep bronzer. My only qualms are 1) it only comes in one shade, and 2) it gets dark. and quick!
To make this work for my extremely fair face, I either wear it overnight and wash it off in the morning, or I dilute it with my regular moisturizer if I wear it during the day.
If you have fair skin and you apply this in the morning, it WILL start to look very unnatural within a couple of hours. PLEASE PLEASE take my advice and either wear it over night or only add a little of it to your morning moisturizer.
It would be great if Origins made a fair skin version of this, or a gradual tanning product for face. Until then, use this stuff with my couple of tips and it'll do the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Traveler1 Best out there
I am a male in my mid 20s, and still suffer from acne breakouts if I use certain things. I liked the color of a drugstore face brand but did not want to deal with the parabens and phthalates or the toxic chemical sunscreen. My search led me to origins Faux Glow. At first, I thought, man, this is expensive. But I had an upcoming vacation to southern California and did not want to look like a Midwesterner, so I bought it.
First of all, you will have the self-tanner smell with ANY products you use. It's just like fishing---your hands will always have a fishy smell if you're fishing right. But the self-tanner smell is ONLY slight and for the first day. The mint oil does a great job at masking the smell.
Second, the color is absolutely natural. It is tinted, so apply it at night because it does look unnaturally dark. After you wash it off in the morning, you will have amazing tanned skin. No orange at all. As soon as I stepped off the plane in LAX, my friend from LA said, "Wow, you're so tan."
I haven't found a more natural, effective self-tanner on the market. Get it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SunWorshiper5 AMAZING!!!
This product is absolutely amazing. Let me start off by saying that I am a 17 year old guy who loves to have tanned skin. I have struggled with acne and breakouts and also dark spots and I feel when you are tan, it greatly diminished those marks, almost like and optical illusion. In the winter I especially crave tan skin and even though I go to the tanning salon around once a week it still doesn't get me as tan as I would really want. This product works amazingly and you get tan the first night. I use it at night over my moisturizer and it works amazingly. Even though expensive, I think it is worth it because it doesn't make me breakout and it really doesn't effect my skin in any other way then getting me tan. I love it.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MMHadley Orange :-( And returning it
I love Origins and have NEVER returned a product, but I'll be returning this one. I exfoliated, used Toner, Serum, then Moisturizer (all from Origins) on my face and neck, then applied Faux Glow. My face was immediately a darkish-orange color. Awful! Even after a layer of makeup you could still tell I used fake tanner. :-( What a shame. And it does have some of the scent they said, but you can still strongly smell the fake-tanning smell...
