Finally a self tan that meet my expectations

AdvantagesNo streaks and a nice golden tan all over

DisadvantagesThe liquid is incolore therefore not very easy to see

"I first encounter Ecotan self tan spray when a work colleague bought it to me for my birthday!! I knowI know I have nice work colleagues!!! Anyway, I wasn't too keen on it at first as I have quite a few prejudices against QVC for some reasons but I still decided to give it a go and believe me I never regretted it!!! - Application - Before applying the product (the same as before applying any self tan lotion!) you have to make sure that you exfoliate ..."

gives you the look of a sexy sun goddess

Advantagesgives a even golden tan

Disadvantagesnone

"...in the shower and exfoliate. Eco tan do a exfoliator which is quite good. But you can use them puffy things that are like sponges. Make sure you get all of your body. Once you get out of the shower wait until the pores are closed otherwise you might get a bit of a streaky look. Applying the spray. Hold the bottle arms length away and spray onto one body part at a time (this may help you from forgetting bits) if you wear a plastic glove (like the ..." Read review

golden beach babe in (almost) an instant

Advantagesgreat results, natural looking, easy to apply, even tones.

Disadvantagesnone

"I have been using ecotan for 2 years now and have to say it is the best product I have ever used! I am fair-ish skinned with light brown hair and blue eyes, and although I do tan in the sun I prefer not to and, hey, with our climate it's just not possible anyway! I tend to use the product the night before and make sure I'm hair free first - but here's a tip: never shave/wax on the same day you plan to tan or you may end up with a "pin-cushion" effect ..."

No more streaks for me...ahem

AdvantagesPump spray rather than messy cream, natural looking tan which lasts for days

DisadvantagesNot the cheapest of products, but you get what you pay for!

" We all know about the dangers of sunbathing, the increased risk of skin cancers without the right sort of high factor sun protection creams. But why use the sun when you can apply a self-tanning cream, gel or spray which doesn’t harm the skin, nor give you a nasty case of sunburn? And you can have a very natural looking tan within hours if you choose the right product. And if you prepare your skin fully before you begin. EcoTan is such a ..." Read review

The tan you've always wanted

AdvantagesEasy to apply, no streaks, no nasty smell

DisadvantagesNone so far!

"I know it doesn't seem like it, but summer isn't far away and we'll all soon be getting out the shorts and vest tops and baring our white bodies to the world! I've discovered a brilliant product called Ecotan which will enable you to go out on a sunny day and not worry about looking like a pale Brit!! The self tan comes in a 200ml spray which is really easy to use and lasts for a long time and costs around £13 - £17 depending on where you buy ..." Read review

Looking tanned is so easy now

AdvantagesSo easy to use, no more orange marks, Spray bottle

DisadvantagesCan't think of any

"...I have a tan. I bought ECO Tan from QVC a while back now, and when I first used it I followed the instructions to the letter. But my first attempt made me burn and go very very red. I was told to make a test somewhere on my body that wouldn't be seen, Well I'm always in Jeans or Trousers so I did my legs and that was fine but as soon as I put it on my face thats when it happened, You would have thought I had been put in the oven on high heat for ..."

Spray it on

AdvantagesFast and effective

DisadvantagesCan drip if you hold the spray too close.

"The sun is out for the first time this year, you reach for sleeveless T-shirt and a short skirt, but wait look at those pasty arms and blue-white legs, what can you do? Reach for the self tan and fake it. I started to use Ecotan last summer as I was sick of hiding in the back garden until my legs had lost the deathly winter pallour. The first go disaster! I had brown drips round my ankles which took a few days to fade. I had followed the instructions ..." Read review

A great quick fix!

AdvantagesA speedy way of getting a tan

DisadvantagesSome people seem to have difficulty applying it

"Ok, so I NEVER tan. I never have done. I can sit out in the sun for hours, get slightly pink...then back to white again. The 'white' look is rarely attractive though, so I've used self tans for years - a god send! However, despite being a bit of a self-tan-aholic, I'm not a fan of the 'orange' look, so when I find a tan that I like, I tend to stick with it. I first tried Ecotan a couple of years back. The spray method has quite a few benefits ..." Read review

Worth a shot!

AdvantagesEffective

DisadvantagesCan be tricky to use

"Over the years I have tried a fair few fake tans, being extremely fair skinned and never tanning just burning I need some help to get that Bronzed look. One of the products I have tried is Ecotan. This can take a little while to get the hang of but once you do it is amazing and one of the better self tanning products I have tried. It doesn't mark clothes and dries in minutes, a great bonus - as I feel like a right numpty stood in my underwear not ..." Read review

UPDATED, ARR ITS THE BISTO KID

AdvantagesNone

Disadvantagestrickled down your legs when applied.

"... The first time I applied Eco Tan I exfoliated first, then moisturised just like on the TV. Then I applied the product by holding it 12 inches away from my skin. Then I gave a quick blast to my legs and watched it all trickle down my legs. I hardly let any out, I didn't rub it in as the instructions told you not to. Then I waited for four hours or so. I tried to keep still, I thought this was going to be the best false tan application ever!! After ..." Read review

Ecotan Excel

AdvantagesEasy to apply, is coloured so you see where you are spraying

DisadvantagesThe colour of the bottle means it is difficult to tell how much you have left

"I read a review on Ecotan in a magazine where it promised to be easy to apply with no messy hands, no streaks and a natural even colour. That did it, I ordered a bottle from QVC and waited eagerly for it to arrive. On the day that it arrived I applied it during my lunch hour from work. It was easy to apply as long as you followed the instructions and held the spray a good distance from your body as you were applying it. And due to the colour you ..." Read review

Easy to use

AdvantagesEasy to apply, even Tan, no mess , unisex,

Disadvantages

"EcoTan has been the first Self Tan product i have used that i was able to apply easily without any mess mistakes or streaking. Yhe product is a clear liquid and is applied with a spray dispenser. You only need a light mist which therefore leaves out the need to massage the product into the skin, I found that it gave a Tan which lacked the Orange type colouration that some i have used left. The product is both safe for the face and an all over body ..." Read review

Streaky, orange & STINKS! Don't believe fake reviews for Eco Tan!

AdvantagesNONE

DisadvantagesStinks, orange, streaky, blotchy, STINKS. Did I mention that it STINKS? And it's streaky & orange.

"...during this time. But, Eco Tan took me right back to about 1985, not only in terms of blotchy-orangeness, but also in terms of STENCH. Indeed, this product was to blame for the first "hiccup" (read as "minor argument") between my boyfriend and I. Online reviews told me that I could apply this product at any time, and develop an even tan, odour-free over a number of hours... Yeah, right! As an experienced fake-tanner, I exfoliated thoroughly ..." Read review

no more nasty niffs or tangerine streaks

Advantagesnatural looking colour

Disadvantagesneeds two applications

"i tan quite easily so milky legs in summer is not really an issue but as party season descends, what to do about those corned beef legs.... not a good look. being a late night qvc slob, i'd often heard not only the presenters but lots of viewers raving about this stuff so knowing i had 30 days to use it and send it back if i wasn't happy i decided to give it a whirl. it was fairly pricey, about £10 for a 250ml bottle, and i was a bit disappointed ..."

I've been tangoed

Advantageseasy top apply

Disadvantagesorange rather than brown

"...in the resort. I bought Eco Tan from a QVC outlet. This was good because I got the full set; two bottles of spray tan, shower gel, exfoliator and moisturiser for £12 instead of the £26 charged on TV. I was all hyped up to try this new spray tan idea and the results shown on TV were amazing, no streaks, even brown tan in 4-6 hours. Not so in my case. I followed the instructions to the letter. I used the shower gel and exfoliator first, then applied ..." Read review
