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.

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 3 out of 5Â by LauraCHelmke It smells!
Literally; it stinks. I'm going to have a difficult time using this product whether it "works" or not simply because it smells so bad. I won't be buying it again, that's for sure.

Like most self-tanners, this too has an odd odor to it once applied. If you can get over that part, then the lotion is smooth and works well.
