Can't tan? Fake it with St. Moriz
Review of St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse by louemham

Advantages: Cheap, green undertone, glides on smoothly
Disadvantages: slight biscuity smell

As a lady of German descent, my skin colour is EXTREMELY pale, I do not tan whilst out in the sun, and if I do not apply sun screen, I burn very easily. So to get that healthy glow, I need to use a self tanner, as I also refuse to use tanning beds, as the ... Read review

Im not a big fan of tans and find them unattractive. I also find the term "natural tan" odd as there is nothing natural about burning your skin to get a tan. by mozzie76

How Malibu Tanning Oil Works For Me
Review of Malibu Bronzing Tanning Oil SPF 15 Water Resistant by meganwhitmore13

Advantages: It Smells Nice, it is very moisterizing
Disadvantages: It doesn't really help you tan, it makes you feel sweaty and greasy on application

In my opinion Malibu tanning oil isn't bad at all, however, I find that the consistency of the product isn't pleasant. On a hot summers day after applying the product I tend to feel very greasy and sweaty, which isn't nice. Once the product has soaked int ... Read review

A sunscreen for kids
Review of Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Sensitive Advanced Lotion SPF50+ by Icypink

Advantages: SPF 50+, fast absorbed, no perfume, colourants and parabens
Disadvantages: Leaves skin sticky and greasy at first

Buying sunscreens for my children is really a hit and miss. I need to be careful which sunscreen to buy as they are allergic to a few. There had been times when I had to throw a sunscreen away after only using it once as they came out in an allergy rash ... Read review

Getting that beautiful tan
Review of Banana Boat Dark Tanning Oils by sammyarnold08

Advantages: Good sun protection, lasting tan, water resistant
Disadvantages: After applying it's very oily, not the best scent

I have trouble with tanning which is why I bought this. When using it, I was able to lay in the sun in a bikini with only this on as protection for over an hour and not get burnt. However, I didn't get a tan straight away. I kinda expected to, but accordi ... Read review

Advantages: Lovely scent, cute shape, portable, easy to use, effective, lasts a long time
Disadvantages: None for me

My favourite store, Lush, launched two new products in the last couple of years. Identical in size and shape – they clearly came from the same mould as the Shimmy Shimmy glitter massage bar – they were priced at £7.50 and were designed as skin tints. One, ... Read review

Disadvantages: Not mattifying as promised, adds lots of shine.
