Tan-Fastic

Advantages: Works well, Smells ok
Disadvantages: Packaging looks cheap, takes a while to dry

With Summer seeming to be well and truly here, I've become quite conscious of how deathly pale my skin is looking. Over winter I tend to go a bit grey (not in a John Major's 'Spitting Image' puppet way, just a bit dreary looking!) I don't tan very we ...

Sublime Suntan

Advantages: subtle, even, healthy glow
Disadvantages: don't think the bottle will last very long

The only fake tan I had ever used was Johnson's Holiday Skin lotion, and whilst I liked the results it gives, you have to apply it pretty much every day to get noticeable results and maintain your tan. As I am too lazy to apply tanning lotion every day, w ...

More 'Giselle' than 'Christina Aguilera'

Advantages: Absorbs well, Difficult to get wrong!! use on face also.
Disadvantages: smell during development

I really suggest than even amature fake tanners try this product out to add a bit of a glow to winter worn skin. I'm a typically perfectionist Virgo and as such rather tentative when it comes to tanning products. I can't stand the idea of having just o ...
