Every-time I have being on Holiday I have had the urge to go to the beach and try catch some of the sun. But to my annoyance being English with very fair skin, no such luck. I’m just left with the most horrific burns and worst red lines across my chest.
On my last holiday to Majorca my friend had to buy me an extra large “I love Majorca” T-shirt so I could wear it in the sea, to disguise my terrible burns. And to be quite honest its not worth the hassle and would much rather take the quick and easy option of wearing fake tan, easier and more accessible.
I decided to try all the fake tans going.
For moisturizing, this cream is spot on. But also finding that sometimes it can feel quite sticky. I really wanted a quick tan straight away. This cream is more of an everyday body lotion which gradually tans. Even though it says its takes up to three days, I didn’t see anything. I suppose for four pounds it hasn’t really broke the bank.
2. Superdrug Solait
This tanning lotion was actually one of my favorites. My second in fact. Is was the cheapest tanning lotion I have bought yet. It worked one of the best too. Especially on the face, it left sometimes very faint streaks, but if you do mix a little bit of moisturizer in, it does work well. The tan doesn’t take too long to develop either. I thought it was definitely worth the three pounds.
This tanning lotion i find is the one that is advertised the most. My friend is a regular user of the product. It does go on the skin very well. It does last for twenty four hours, which is good so you can top it up if needed. But even if you have a speck of water hit it, it looks terrible. I just find that you are always conscious of anyone spilling anything on you or just yourself. If you didn’t have the cream with you, you would find it hard to disguise the streaks. It is one of the cheapest on the market. The good thing about it is you can wash it off very quickly, if you’re not too happy with it.
4. St Tropez
The creme de la creme of fake tans! By far my favorite. The winner of the tans. You are not left without a beautiful golden tan with this stuff. I don’t bother with the first steps of the St Tropez tanning cycle. I just always buy this Step 3 and just exfoliate before hand.
I pay Fifteen pounds for this bottle. Definitely worth the money. I never have streaks, it works instantly and you can just apply it once and it will last up to three days. It goes really well on your face too, which a lot of tans don’t. I haven’t tried the moose, i always go with the cream. I have used this product for nearly three years now and have never ever had a problem with it. Also you really do save money because the bottle does last for ages.
I will always stick with St. Tropez!
