agelesssuntested
A few months ago, we asked FOFs where on their bodies they wanted to add some color.  After testing Albertini’s Ageless Sun (retail value: $20), these FOFs reported back.  See what they have to say below!

DOLORES PETERSENBuffalo. NY

I really enjoyed this tanning product. It had a very pleasant scent. It did not streak at all. I love using self-tanning products and am very careful with putting it on and following directions. It was very easy to use. I put the product on a little every day to obtain the tan I wanted and it lasted for a few days. I am not sure if I would pay $20.00 for this product as there are so many out there that are cheaper and work just as well. If I had a coupon, I would definitely.buy it .I was happy to test this product and every product I have tested through FabOverFifty has been top notch. Good product for sure (#4).

LORNA LOCKERTFredericksburg, NY

Tell us about the packaging and application. Was this product easy to use?
The packaging was perfect, not “overpackaged,” and the product was easy to use.

Did it have a pleasant fragrance?
I was very pleased with the fragrance. It wasn’t overpowering; nor did it make me sneeze.

Did you experience streaking?

Yes, a little bit, but I think that was my fault.

For how long did your tan last?
The tan lasted approximately a week for me.

What was your overall experience with this product?
I didn’t care for the tone of my skin after using the product, but that could have been my fault. I loved the lotion, however. My skin soaked it in, and it lasted far longer than I anticipated.

Would you purchase this product for $20.00? Why or why not?
I would purchase the lotion, but not the tanner. I think it reinforced my opinion never to buy a self tanner.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes.

I did not detect much of a fragrance with this product which is how I like it. I remember the days of orange stripes and am pleased to report that there was none of that using Ageless Sun. The color was very natural looking and darkened gradually. I would suggest using a little bit on your face as it took awhile to be absorbed. As I am still using it, I can not say how long it will last. I think this is a good product and I would purchase it for $20.00. It does what it promises to do, give you a tan without going out in the sun. The only suggestion I have is to put some SPF into it so you can use it when you are outdoors. I would rate this as a 4 because of the SPF and definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a tan.

LINDA POSTONMidlothian, VA

Tell us about the packaging and application. Was this product easy to use?
The product was easy to use.

Did it have a pleasant fragrance?
It smells better than most self tanners. Just a slight order.

Did you experience streaking?

It streaked like crazy. The formula has no color & even with super careful application it streaked badly.

For how long did your tan last?
It was the usual 3 day tan but if it were possible to get it on evenly the color was realistic for me (I am fair skinned).

What was your overall experience with this product?
The best thing that I found about this product is that there was very little pore clogging on my face. When I have used other sunless products, even those made for the face, I have had problems with the product clogging my pores.

Would you purchase this product for $20.00? Why or why not?
No, I probably would not buy it for $20.00. Fake Bake is more expensive but it has a color to it so the chance for streaking is drastically cut down.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
No, I would not recommend this product. It is just too hard to get it evenly applied.

My over all rating is a 2.

ANN FULLERSautee Nacoochee, GA

Tell us about the packaging and application. Was this product easy to use?
This product was the best I have found. The application was so easy after showering. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly. I applied a small amount and looked as if I had returned from the beach.

I loved the large tubes. The instructions were easy to read and follow. The instructions gave added information how to use around ankles and elbows. Easy to handle and dispense.

Did it have a pleasant fragrance?
Unlike other tanning products, this one had a wonderful scent. No more the offensive odor from self tanning products. The fragrance has me sold on this self tanner.

Did you experience streaking?
I did get some streaking around my ankles. I am sure it was my application, not the products fault. My legs and arms had absolutely no streaking. The cream was even and covered completely.

For how long did your tan last?
I only needed one application for my first outing using the product. The color was so realistic. No orange skin, just a beautiful even tan. My application lasted over a week. I’m 65 so I didn’t want to look over tanned. I felt the application was enough color for my age. I did apply a second application after a few days to my face for
more glow.

What was your overall experience with this product?
I am absolutely sold on this product. I have seen friends my age that use a self tanner and they look orange. This was such a natural, tanned look. It is perfect for the healthy look we still want, but keeping out of the sun.

Would you purchase this product for $20.00? Why or why not?
YES! I have spent so much money on self tanning products that ended up in the trash. I would pay this amount and more for this product. It’s a keeper!

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes, for our age group it gives a natural tan look to the skin. Not the over 50 trying to look tanned, but ending up orange.
