The weather may have turned, but I still want my tan, so I'm going to have to fake it before my next trip to the sunshine. Here are the tans that I am loving the most.
St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion (£14.50/200ml Boots) has been my tanning hero this year, with a baby I've not had loads of time to dedicate to beauty tasks and my preseason and accuracy for tanning has been pretty poor! With this product you just slap it on after your shower - wait 3 mins (brush my teeth in this window) then rinse off and ta-da! It does give more of a glow than a proper tan but builds up after a few uses.
For an instant hit I always go back to Rimmel Sunshimmer Water Resist Instant Tan Med Matte (£6.99/125ml Superdrug) It lasts forever - so long the packaging has changed since I bought mine! I'll be slathering this on my limbs today before heading to my fiends wedding so it looks like I've been on holiday! Do use gloves to apply to avoid monkey paws though.
L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Express Pro Spray for Medium Skin (£15.49/150ml Boots) is a fake tan classic - giving a lovely glow and the spray gives easy application too. I opt for the medium shade, but there is a lighter shade too is your a nervous tanner.
My fave type of tanner is a mousse and He-Shi Gold Foaming Mousse (£24.99/150ml Superdrug) ticks a lot of the boxes. The product is colored, so you can see where you have applied, and more importantly where you have missed! The tan that develops is a really natural looking golden bronze - for even application make sure you use a mitt.
What's better than tanned leg? Tanned legs with no cellulite! Urban Tan Fair Maiden (£18.99/270ml Amazon) is a tanner which is also enriched with Anti-Ageing ingredients to firm, tighten and tone the skin to diminish cellulite - so you can rock that bikini.
Which tanner is your fave?
